I hope you don't mind if I start a new thread, as a newbie? And apologies if it is something you've already discussed. Daryl and Negan have been purposefully kept apart all through season 9. The time for them to meet again is surely coming in season 10. I can't wait to see how that will play out. Understandably, we all have very mixed feelings about Negan and his redemption arc, covering a wide range of where we are actually sitting in our acceptance of it, and how far we think we can be stretched to believe that someone like him can be forgiven and redeemed. I love that we have this hard and challenging dilemma, with such a complex character, it's fascinating. We have seen Michonne's journey with this throughout the season, and we have kind of lived it with her. But we have also seen everything through Judith's eyes as well. She knows this man has done monstrous things, yet he's always been kind and generous with her. She's giving him a chance, and so far he's done nothing to break her trust. Whilst we, like Michonne, can't forget what this man was once capable of, and understandably harbour serious doubt whether a leopard can ever change his spots. Yet, the man is undeniably changing. Thankfully, he's still the same asshole he always was (because that's hugely entertaining) but eight years confinement, and the friendship a lovely child has offered him, has given him time and purpose to move forward. But how will Daryl deal with this, when they inevitably come face to face soon, now that he's gone back to live in Alexandria, and Negan will most likely be put on some kind of probation soon, after his snowstorm heroics? We have seen Daryl rise above with Dwight. Will he be able to do it with Negan too? How will that go down? What are your thoughts?
