At the end of this episode, Negan took Daryl hostage and after throwing him into the van made these statements: Does Negan truly believe Rick doesn't have guts as this exchange infers? Does Negan really like Daryl and admire Daryl or is this just Negan breaking down a formidable foe in front of his people and playing mind games to get a warrior leader under his thumb? Would a leader like Negan 'like' a man who punched him in front of 100 of his men after Negan clearly forbade any reaction to the killings? Remember the beginning of the episode, immediately following Glenn's death, Rick threatened to kill Negan 'someday' and then Negan dragged Rick into the RV for his joyride into hell? Negan was livid. Pissed off that Rick didn't completely break down after the deaths and beg for his mercy. That was NOT COOl in Negan's mind as evidenced by this scene: He's mockingly quoting Rick here. And then warning him here. And then Negan takes it upon himself, doesn't delegate to a minion or his lieutenant, but takes it upon himself to break.Rick.down. I believe that Negan knows Rick is a threat. Rick is a strong leader. A leader that killed many of his men. What are your thoughts?
