Spoilers for the April 8 episode. Walking Dead desperately needs one of the scenes found in each movie, where someone explains the voiceover how he (or she – shoutout to Ocean's Eight ) removed it. With the episode jumping back and forth in time and characters jumping back and forth between loyalties, it's hard to keep track of who's top edge in the second-last episode of The Walking Dead . After Sunday's episode, where Negan managed to use Dwight to send poor information to Rick, there are still some unanswered questions. Unnamed: What's Negan's Real Plan on The Walking Dead ? Our heroes go into a trap!
If we follow this game by phone hosted by Mean Girls to its conclusion, the Negan can let Dwight think he meets his allies in a certain place so that Dwight will tell Rick ̵
Unless Rick and the others smell the rat, they will sneak up on a bunch of Saviors who are already expecting them. There must be an obstacle, right? A big match for the big finals? Will Aaron and Oceansiders load in the last minute, like Han Solo in Star Wars or Rohirrim or really any army in The Lord of the Rings ? Can no one agree on a time and place to meet for a battle in stories such as this? Anyway, the most obvious plan for the Negan is that he attracts the best warriors to a place where he and the savior can take them out. Rick will think he's stumbling, but he's really been snuck.
Or can the saviors plan to take over the hill while everyone else is gone? Negan expressed ambitions for the historical site, but then again – what's the truth anymore? Of course, we can not trust anything that he tells anyone. It is also possible that this plan has something to do with the infected weapon plot from earlier this season. Perhaps the Negan hoped that that map would give all the paper cuts so that he could dump a lot of rolling blood on them, Carrie -style and slowly infect all to death.
The only person who knows this is a trap and can help is Eugene. The timeline of Sunday's episode was a bit fuzzy, but Eugene seems to be informed about the situation before being taken by Daryl and Rosita back to Hilltop. It also means that Negan's plan means bullets, because Eugene is set to a strict deadline, but it's not surprising. Rick and the others may not believe in him, but he could do right and try to stop them. There is also Gabriel, who can surprise everyone anyway and draw a final auxiliary hero in the season 8 final.
Here's another question: Does Gregory know the real plan? Probably not. Blessing his little heart, Gregory is not so good for an actor, and Negan seems surprised that Dwight delegates. Negan's manipulation seems to go off without hitch, but it's still not exactly how he planned it. Even at backstabbing, Dwight is a pretty good leader.
Fortunately, Rick, Michonne, Maggie and the others have all been in similar situations earlier. There is no way that they will be completely unprepared for what Negan really is planning. While the finals are sure to have lots of turns and shocking revelations, there is no way that Negan will not be as surprised as those who plan to kill. Nobody is so good – right?
