Hello! You may have already answered this, but how do you feel about Maggie forgiving Daryl so easily? I've seen that a bunch of Glenn fans were angry about it, but idk...I'm a Daryl fan so I obviously forgave him easily. My reasoning was that Daryl obviously had no idea what was going to happen when he jumped out of the lineup and if he knew it meant Glenn dying, then he wouldn't have done it. And the guilt has been eating him alive. But I still understand why Glenn fans were upset...
i’m pretty much conflicted with what i think in all honesty since i have two conflicting ideas:
i do blame daryl for his death (you can see my explain here) and i understand that this is down to personal interpretation, but in my sense, i don’t find it fair that maggie has easily forgiven daryl for this. i just think the scriptwriters in this sense have focused more of the grief of glenn on daryl, rather than maggie which is completely stupid for me to comprehend considering maggie was his wife and is carrying his child. in all honesty i’m just completely tired of the writers recycling daryl’s storyline (i explain this process here).
however, i understand why maggie may have forgave daryl. the tv version of maggie has definitely diverted from comic maggie in my understanding e.g. maggie appears more forgiving on the show in the comics. for example, maggie attacked rick as she believed glenn’s death was his fault. however, there have been more examples of maggie’s forgiving nature on the show e.g. forgiving tara for being initially with the governor, who killed her father.
personally, i like to believe that maggie forgave daryl in order to take down negan. if there are tensions within the group, this would tear the group apart and would act as a distraction to the sole focus: overthrowing the saviors and negan. because of this, i think maggie acted like glenn would have in this situation, forgave and took action.
so basically no, i did not like that maggie forgave daryl so quickly, but i do understand her intentions.
thank you so much for asking to share my own views, it is much appreciated and i hope you’re having a lovely day!
