Warning: There are spoilers ahead for “The Walking Dead.”
The end of Sunday’s “The Walking Dead” showed a big moment from the comics fans have been wondering if they’ll see on the show.
Negan gathered the Saviors around to show them a new tactic to taking down Rick and his crew in their ongoing war.
This is your last warning before spoilers.
Negan tells the Saviors they’re going to use the undead to get one step ahead of Rick.
“Y’all know how it works. You get a bite, some kind of wound from one of these things, something from them gets in you, and you die,” Negan says. “You join the club, which sucks. What if we could use that to our advantage?”
Negan proceeds to bash up one of the zombies and covers his bat with walker guts.
He then tells the Saviors that they’ll be doing the same with their weapons to save on ammunition.
“You see how Lucille is getting to know our beautiful, cold friend here? That’s it. Look at that. No more smashing and bashing with this. With this, it could just be a touch or a big, wet kiss,” Negan says. “Either way, this gets you full membership and that’s what we want. We want people to join the club. The Hilltop is going to learn to toe the line one way or another. Dead or Alive. Or some kind of sh– in between.”
How it happens in the comics
The scene plays out similarly in issue #122, but comic Negan uses much more colorful language.
Here’s his speech in full:
Good morning Saviors! thanks for gathering for me so early today. Look what we have here! I know it seems f—ing crazy to have these undead f–ks inside the walls, but these beauties are the lynchpin of our war plans going forward. Believe it or not, these things are going to help us win this f—ing war.
You all know how this s–t works. You get a bite, you get any kind of wound from these things something from them gets in you … and you f—ing die. We’re all infected. We all have this to look forward to when we die. We know this. But for some good—n reason… one of these things bites us… no matter how minor an injury it would otherwise f—ing be—the fever sets in. That fever burns us the f— out. Makes us one of them faster than we’d planned to be. Which f—ing sucks. That’s the dangerous world we’re living in. But we’re going to use it to our advantage!
You see this? Look at it… watch how I’m just getting in there… rubbing all up in its grill. Lucille is getting to know this sorry sack of dead flesh. Sorry, Lucille. Yeah! Get nasty, girl! Now look at this! The new and improved, better than before, all awesome and abso-f—ing-lutely deadly Lucille. I don’t have to crush your head or pound your face through the back of your skull with her anymore. …read more
