As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is going to change everything. TWD spoilers revealed that the threatening character will be around for quite some time. Don’t expect this villain to be dealt with like the others were. Negan is not the Governor or Gareth. Those two enemies are not even in the same league as Negan.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Norman Reedus discussed what is being referred to as Negan’s Law. The actor also spoke about how Negan is going to change Rick’s group.
The man who portrays Daryl Dixon revealed spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7 that should make fans worry about the characters. It is not just a matter of fearing who Negan killed in TWD, but the effect it will have on Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the others.
Reedus said that Negan has turned their world upside down. The main characters of TWD thought they were living and surviving while still holding on to their morals. It is true that their response to certain things has changed over the years, but at the core, they believed they were still good people.
Spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7 reveal that Negan is going to take their world, change everything they thought they knew, and destroy many in the process.

When asked how Negan’s victim will affect Rick’s group, it sounds like things are going to be much worse than fans thought. Everyone will react differently to Negan’s big kill.
“Some relinquish power. Some accept it. Some fight it. There are people questioning it. There are people pointing their fingers. There are people blaming themselves,” Norman Reedus told EW. “Other things happen that completely destroy people. The group is completely broken apart at this point. Negan has come in and completely shaken up everything.”
The actor also hinted that loyalties will be broken. Reedus added that their belief in themselves and each other will be fractured. With a description as grim as this, is there any hope?
In a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly, Khary Payton spoke about his new role on The Walking Dead. The actor will debut as Ezekiel, the leader of The Kingdom. He compared how he survived rejection in the acting business to Ezekiel’s hope in TWD.
“In a zombie apocalypse one can find themselves getting down about their situation,” Khary Payton told EW, “but Ezekiel’s not one of those people. He fights with all he’s got to make sure he stays positive and stays joyful. That’s what I love about him.”
Another cast member that spoke about hope in The Walking Dead Season 7 was Lauren Cohan. She plays Maggie Greene, who happens to be carrying a child. At Comic-Con 2016, the actress discussed why Maggie and Glenn (Steven Yeun) got pregnant.
“If we think of the theme of pregnancy, Maggie is a hopeful character and she’s deciding that it’s a good idea to hope that the future world will have a place for her child,” Lauren Cohan explained, according to ComicBook. “I think that’s so important. I think that for the group and what Judith has given us and in the repeated rising from the ashes that we have all experienced up to this point.”
