    Lennie talks a bit about Morgan's decision to build a jail at Alexandria.

    "Morgan is not killing because he's good at it," Lennie James explained to ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview. "He got really good at it. It was all consuming and it's almost like he's an addict to a certain extent and he knows that if he has just one drink, it may well lead him all the way down the road into a binge."

    The struggle of not wanting to kill but still wanting to help is what lead Morgan to build the jail cell in Alexandria according to James.

    "It's kind of like conscientious objectives during times of war who say that they don't want to fight but that doesn't mean they don't want to help the struggle so will become medics or stretcher bearers or whatever," James explains. "Just because Morgan is saying that he doesn't want to kill people, it doesn't mean that he doesn't want to do something to protect the Alexandrians. He knows just from past experience that this town is going to need a jail and it's going to need to be one that is more secure than the one he was in and particularly the one that the Wolf was in. Having seen how easy it was for the W man to get away, Morgan believes the one thing he can contribute to the group and possibly, strangely, maybe save lives, is by building a cell."​

    I am so discontent because
    this probably means they're going to be keeping Negan around. :gabe:

    I hate the idea so much that it makes me want to gag. I'm not having any of it but comic fanboy Gimple probably won't be able to resist and I will resent the hell out of him for it.

    It seems like I'm one of the few that actually likes the fact that Negan is imprisoned instead of being killed.

    I'm just trying to imagine Jeffrey Dean Morgan with long beard. :shane:

    ngl, I kinda liked that rick was trying to re-build civilization and structure by putting him in prison. I think the point of it all gets explained much later in the comics, but I get people wanting him gone after killing glenn and abraham.

    If it feels organic to the story, then I fine with imprisonment, but I understand wanting Negan to die.

    Well as i said before if Negen kills Michonne with a bat. There is no way Rick going to keep Negan alive. Rick would keep Negen alive if he killed Glenn.
