Now that the episode that was originally slated to be the Season 10 finale of The Walking Dead has aired, there’s one question on everyone’s mind: What’s going to happen when Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) finally meet again? With the next season of the AMC series being the last, you might think that would be the perfect time for it to happen. However, it sounds entirely possible we’ll see that showdown before then.
When asked what their meeting would be like during The Walking Dead’s New York Comic Con 2020 panel, showrunner Angela Kang simply said, “You’ll see in the episodes to come.” However, she also revealed that the upcoming Season 10 bonus episodes, which will debut early in 2021, will feature a Maggie-centric story.
“We’re really going to see an episode with Maggie when she comes back, since we just got to see her for a little bit in the finale that just aired,” Kang teased. However, she was also careful to note how everyone on the NYCC panel, including Morgan, would figure into the bonus episodes. It’s hard to imagine a more meaningful story for Negan, at this point, than having to face Maggie and her child, knowing that he brutally murdered her husband Glenn.
