The Walking Dead Season 6 is heating up in the last half, and finally, fans are going to meet the worst villain of the TWD comics. With the arrival of the Saviours last week, we can expect to see their leader, Negan, very soon. Unfortunately, that is going to be very bad for Rick’s group, and we’ve learned that Negan might make his mark next week in The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 11.
It turns out that Rick and Daryl aren’t the only members of Alexandria to go out on a supply run. According to the Spoiling Dead Fans, Tara and Heath will head out on a run, too, but they will be gone for two weeks. They claim that Denise will talk about Tara and Heath leaving in this week’s episode, “The Next World,” which will set us up for the action and the possible downfall of Tara in upcoming Season 6 episodes.

Design & Trend also seems to think that Tara and Heath’s adventure is going to run them right into Negan and the Saviors. They pointed out that Alanna Masterson, who plays Tara, is well aware that Scott Gimple could come calling at pretty much any point now and let her know that her time on The Walking Dead is up. They cite an Entertainment Weekly article from last year where Masterson talked about getting “the call” from Gimple. She even said that the TWD creator has been instructed to text her before calling, so that she doesn’t freak out thinking her character is going to die when he calls.
Whether or not Tara and Heath will be capture by Negan is still very much a theory, though the Spoiling Dead Fans are usually more right than wrong. Everyone involved with the making of The Walking Dead are doing what they can to keep upcoming episodes a secret and as of now, we don’t even know what the title of the episode will be. That will likely be released after the current episode of TWD airs when the promos for next week are released. Then we’ll hopefully also learn if Tara and Heath will meet up with Negan or his men.

Speaking of Negan’s men, who are the Saviors anyway? TWD fans got a chance to see just how bad (and crazy) they can be in last week’s episode, “No Way Out.” In it, we saw one of Negan’s goons threatening Daryl Dixon and immediately knew that guy had it coming. That’s why no one was upset when Daryl blew the biker group to smithereens with a rocket launcher and a puddle of gasoline. The scene was epic, but that was only a fraction of Negan’s men, and now the most ruthless villain in The Walking Dead is going to want revenge.
Here’s where things might get interesting, and we can expect a few differences between the AMC series and the comic books. The Saviors were part of the Hilltop Colony. The biker gang will steal, torture, and torment others in order to get the supplies they need. They are like the mobsters of the apocalypse, and are known in the comic books to offer protection from walkers in return for the items they take. The Saviors worship Negan in the comics, and we’re betting their devotion isn’t much different in the upcoming episodes of The Walking Dead.

According to Bustle, it is the Saviors who are responsible for killing both Abraham and Glenn in the comic books. Scott Gimple has already said that Glenn’s graphic death at Negan’s hands in the comic book will not go down in the AMC series. That doesn’t mean he won’t die, though, and many fans are wondering if we’ll see Lucille, the barbed-wire-wrapped bat that kills Glenn in the comics. The answer to that is yes. Someone will die at the hands of Lucille, according to Negan actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but it won’t be Glenn. Will Abraham or Daryl be Negan’s victim? Both men are on the short list of TWD characters whose deaths would be upsetting, but not surprising, at this point in the show.
What we do know is that Negan and the Saviors are going to try and take Alexandria. Negan will offer Rick protection (and by offer, we mean force) and, after Rick turns him down flat, it’s going to be a pretty epic battle between Rick and Negan, where many will die, including some of the good guys, according to several recent interviews about the last half of The Walking Dead Season 6 and especially the finale, which Andrew Lincoln admitted made him sick to his stomach to film.
