The First Time This Unusual Character Turning Point Ever Happened On The Walking Dead


“When I read the script, I was a bit concerned,” said Andrew Lincoln on Talking Dead. The actor best known as Rick Grimes was referring to the moment when his character slit Negan’s throat underneath the shade tree. Specifically, he was referring to Negan’s infamous monologues from previous seasons.

“When I slit his throat…,” started Andrew Lincoln. “Up until now, Jeffrey Dean Morgan had been amazing, but one of the great things he brought to the show is that at the end of each season, he does a three-page monologue. So when I slit his throat, I thought ‘Ahhh.’ It’s going to have to be me. I’ve never seen him look so happy.”

Lincoln, of course, is referring to his speech at the end of the war. After Rick used a piece of broken glass to try and kill Negan, he instantly made the decision to unite the two sides of the army. For whatever reason, the blood on his hands finally made him agree with his son, Carl.
