Coach Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) teaches Maggie (Lauren Cohan) how to walk like a walker in a scene from the next episode of The Walking Dead. In a sneak peek from "Promises Broken," the penultimate episode of Season 11A, Negan breaks out the walker flesh face mask he wore as an undercover agent in Alpha's (Samantha Morton) army last season. At the time a fugitive from Alexandria — secretly let loose by a vengeful Carol (Melissa McBride) to bring her Alpha's head — Negan spent just days walking with the Whisperers before killing their leader in a turning point of The Whisperer War. 

To save Alexandria and take back Meridian from Pope (Ritchie Coster) and the Reapers, Maggie and Elijah (Okea Eme-Akwari) will walk with the dead, disguised in a loose-fitting face mask because — as Negan points out — it's "someone else's face." This survival tactic unfolds when Maggie's group herds a walker horde towards the Reapers to end Part 1 of the Final Season Trilogy in "For Blood," premiering October 3 on AMC+ and October 10 on AMC. 

"Maggie hates Negan, that's it. Maggie wants him dead. Unfortunately for her, the only out, the only way that she's going to survive certain situations is if she lets Negan into the fold. It's as simple as that," Morgan said previously about Negan and Maggie's temporary truce on Talking Dead. "What it is, is kind of what it is. She hates him but needs him."

For Maggie, who has resisted killing Negan and avenging her husband Glenn (Steven Yeun), he's "just an asset" that has proved useful on the mission to Meridian that most of their group did not survive

"The mission has become more important than any one individual or any one dynamic that exists between them," showrunner Angela Kang explained on The Walking Dead: Episode Insider, "and that is true even for her."

The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 7, "Promises Broken," is now streaming on AMC+ and premieres Sunday, October 3, at 9/8c on AMC.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Still Doesn’t Know How The Walking Dead Season 11 Ends

Screen Rant 25 September, 2021 - 09:29am

Season 11 sees the former leader of the Saviors and Maggie operating under a precarious truce as they try to save Alexandria from the Reapers. In addition to that plotline, which is exclusive to the series, the final season is loosely adapting the comic storyline encompassing issues #175-193, with Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Princess (Paola Lazaro) encountering the post-apocalyptic society, the Commonwealth—the most advanced civilization seen in the series so thus far. Filming for season 11 recently eclipsed its halfway point and is expected to continue through March of next year. That being said, Morgan still doesn’t know how everything will wrap up.

During a conversation on The Rich Eisen Show, Morgan talked about bringing an end to The Walking Dead. While praising the writers, the actor was asked if he knows how the show ends, saying he has no idea. Read what he had to say below:

"It's the last season, and so you know, trying to wrap up an 11-year program that has been such an iconic show for so long. I don't know how easy of a task that is for our writers and the people well above my pay grade. I don't know where they're going, and everything's kind of a surprise to me, every script is something new. So we will see. I'm hoping that Negan is gonna survive and continue sort of his road to redemption, but I have a feeling it's never going to be that easy...No, I don't [how it ends]. [The writers] say they know, I don't know that I believe them. But they say, the showrunner and the writers, say they know. I have no idea. I have asked, and they're not giving me anything other than the side-eye."

The Walking Dead is in a unique position as its final season could lack a feeling of finality. So much of its story has been tied to the fate of Rick Grimes, and fans are still waiting to see the rest of his and Michonne’s (Danai Gurira) story in The Walking Dead movies. On top of that, a Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) spinoff series has already been confirmed—seemingly all of the flagship series’ major players will still be in play. With Carl (Chandler Riggs) dead and Rick gone, the show has deviated from the comics so drastically, anything can happen and there’s virtually no end in sight. At least not in 2022.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Wants Negan "Going Down Swinging" on The Walking Dead

ComicBook.com 24 September, 2021 - 09:55pm

When The Walking Dead ends, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan wants Negan going solo or "going down swinging." Negan came in swinging Lucille (and has since retired the barbwire-wrapped baseball bat for a crowbar), and he might go out the same way if the Reapers hunt him down with Maggie (Lauren Cohan) on their mission to Meridian. Appearing on The Rich Eisen Show ahead of the mid-season finale ominously titled "For Blood," Morgan said he doesn't know how The Walking Dead ends but knows the ending he wants for Negan: 

"One of two ways. Either kind of walking off into the sunset solo or going down swinging," Morgan said. "Who I'm swinging on I don't think even matters, but I wouldn't be opposed to Negan just crashing the party and ending strong and just taking out everybody (laughs)." 

Asked if he will have a say in how Negan finishes up on The Walking Dead, Morgan answered, "I would love to. And obviously, we've deviated enough from the comics, although in the comics Negan does survive."

Morgan says he hasn't been told how the show ends but believes fans will enjoy the final episodes despite the absence of key characters like Carl (Chandler Riggs), Michonne (Danai Gurira), and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). 

"No one knows — well, I don't know — if our ending will coincide with how the comics ended because it's kind of so different," he said. "We've lost Rick, and Carl, and Michonne. Some of the big characters who survive in the comics are no longer with us at this point. So it will be interesting to see where we go and how we end this. I just think the fans will dig it and that's kind of the key."

If Negan is still standing come the series finale in 2022, Morgan hopes to return for a Negan sequel spin-off. He told TVLine, "If I was to do more, I would like to move forward with the story and not backward. I loved what we showed [of his history] in 'Here's Negan,' but now we've done a lot of that story. We could do a short series on how the Saviors came to be, which would be kind of interesting, but I'm more looking forward."

"We've shown these different sides of Negan over the past few years," Morgan continued. "Now I'd like to see, after this ends, what happens to him next. I find that possibility to be a lot more interesting than going back in time."

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Doesn't Know How The Walking Dead Ends

ComicBook.com 24 September, 2021 - 05:00pm

Jeffrey Dean Morgan reveals he doesn't know how The Walking Dead will wrap up its eleventh and final season now airing on AMC. Last September, AMC Networks announced the zombie drama would end after an expanded 24-episode Season 11, concluding with a series finale in 2022. As The Walking Dead nears the close of Season 11A — Part 1 of the Final Season Trilogy, to continue with Season 11B and 11C next year — the Negan actor says he doesn't know where the story is going or how it will end.

"It's the last season, and so you know, trying to wrap up an 11-year program that has been such an iconic show for so long. I don't know how easy of a task that is for our writers and the people well above my pay grade," Morgan said on The Rich Eisen Show. "I don't know where they're going, and everything's kind of a surprise to me, every script is something new. So we will see."

"I'm hoping that Negan is gonna survive and continue sort of his road to redemption," added Morgan, "but I have a feeling it's never going to be that easy." 

Season 11 recently passed the halfway mark of filming and is expected to shoot through March 2022. Asked if he knows how the show ends, Morgan said, "No, I don't. They say they know, I don't know that I believe them. But they say, the showrunner and the writers, say they know. I have no idea. I have asked, and they're not giving me anything other than the side-eye."

In late July, showrunner Angela Kang said the series ending was plotted and pitched but not written at the time. Stars Khary Payton, who plays Ezekiel, and Eleanor Matsuura, who plays Yumiko, later told ComicBook they know how the story ends. 

According to Morgan, the show's creative team at first "had no idea" that Season 11 would be the last.

"The news, when we got it in the middle of the pandemic, was a complete surprise, not only to me and the rest of the actors but to everybody involved in the show from production. [Chief content officer] Scott Gimple and Angela Kang had no idea either," he told Collider earlier this year. "It came from nowhere, and there was such a huge pivot. I think they had Season 11 all mapped out, where they were going to go, and suddenly it became, 'We also have to close the story, in a way.'"

Morgan added: "It took everybody by surprise, so it was a massive pivot. And then, they threw in the six tacked-on [bonus] episodes to Season 10, and instead of doing 16, we're going to do 24 more [in Season 11]. There was a lot of stuff to wrap our heads around."

However The Walking Dead ends, Morgan hopes to reprise the Negan role in a sequel or prequel spin-off.
