Simon Suddenly Becomes Most Evil Character On The Walking Dead


“He knows that he did something wrong, but I think it’s the difference between Negan and Simon that gives a hint that Negan does have some humanity to him,” said The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

On the latest episode of The Walking Dead, Simon disobeyed Negan and then lied to him about it. Negan told Simon to stick to the plan, which meant killing one Heapster as an example. But, Simon killed all but one.

“He has a plan,” said Robert Kirkman about Negan. The plan separates him from Simon, who acts out of anger.

“Negan tells Simon to kill a couple, get them back in line – he has a plan – Simon is angry and just wants to kill them for betraying them,” said Robert Kirkman on a recent episode of Talking Dead.

“Simon may actually be worse than Negan,” said the comic creator. Fans also agreed with this point as a Talking Dead poll confirmed that 76 percent agree Simon is worse than Negan.

Basically, most of the baddest guys we’ve ever seen work for Negan. But, there’s a reason why Negan is Negan.

Fans have grown to love Simon on the series, but he went too far in the latest episode. Actor Steve Ogg said Simon “can be a bit of a bully… but he also loves musical theater.”

The juxtaposition of Simon is what makes him so great, but he’s gone so far now that there’s no coming back. It’s hard to imagine Simon getting out of this mess. He’s got blue paint on his shoe, but there’s no way Negan won’t hear the truth, anyway.

The only way for Simon to get out of this mess is to blame Rick Grimes for the attack, or possibly says the group left. Other than that, someone will spill the news – perhaps Rick or Jadis – and then Negan will have to give Simon the iron or the bullet.

Do you think Simon might do the unthinkable and try to take down Negan?
