Lauren Cohan Wants The Show To Introduce The Strangest Thing Next…


Lauren Cohan Wants A Peaceful Future

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the cast of The Walking Dead has been making predictions. Everyone wants something different for their character. Actress Lauren Cohan perhaps has the strangest request.

“Can she become a mermaid? I’ve been doing a lot of swimming in the sea lately, and I just want to be a mermaid,” said the actress who plays Maggie. “I guess it’s going to be about Oceanside.” Then, she gives a more thoughtful answer about Baby Rhee.

Remember, it’s only been a few weeks since Glenn’s death in TV time, so Maggie still isn’t showing that she’s pregnant.

“It would also be great if she could have a really healthy kid and find a beautiful life. I really want her to have a healthy kid, to make some more friends, and to find some peace. And you know, as always, good weather,” said Lauren Cohan.

These are probably more plausible possibilities. It’s clear that Maggie and Rick Grimes are both fighting for the future of their children. Both want Negan to go so they can live more peaceful lives.

In the end, Rick Grimes just wants to be a farmer, after all.

Doing Whatever It Takes For Peace

For Maggie, a lot has to happen before any peace arrives. First of all, she needs to fight for her land and create order at the Hilltop. Gregory wasn’t the type of person to lead a community, so now it’s her turn.

Then, she needs to stop anyone trying to hurt this peace. This means Negan and the Saviors, but it also means Jadis and the Heapsters. Anyone who won’t follow orders needs to go, one way or another.

Amidst this next season of fighting, however, Maggie needs to make sure she’s got a reliable doctor. It’s possible that the Kingdom will have someone to help her with Baby Rhee, but hopefully, she’ll be able to get Dr. Carson back from the Saviors.

Dr. Carson is their only real bargaining chip at this point.

Do you think Maggie will ever be safe like Lauren Cohan hopes?
