You can all like Negan as much as you’d like, as is your right but DO NOT try and make him seem like something he is not. He’s a villain, don’t try and make him anything other than that. Idc if his bat is named after his wife or his mommy. He doesn’t get a pat on the back for owning up to something that was his fault or feeling bad that Carl, a kid, died. He is not a good person his entire history proves that. He said “punishment is how we built everything we have.” He knew Simon had boys over the age of 10 executed & still made him his right hand man says a lot about who he is. The people he doesn’t kill become slaves so, let’s not applaud him for “sparing” them. He takes pictures of bashed brains. He tortures and manipulates people who are not submissive. He said himself that if you don’t obey you’re gonna wish you were dead or actually be dead. He laughs, smiles and jokes while he kills. So you can like him all you want, but don’t try to make it seem like whatever semblance of a heart he had before the apocalypse is intact now. Any sort of decency doesn’t take away from his actions but more importantly the malicious INTENT behind those actions.

kill me. if you have to kill someone, if there has to be punishment, then kill me. i’m serious

you wanna die?

no, i don’t. but i will. it’s gonna happen. and if–if me dying can stop this, if it can make things different–for us, for you, for all those other kids–it’d be worth it. i mean, was this the plan? was it supposed to be this way? is this who you wanted to be?
