November 15th’s episode “Always Accountable” introduced us to some new characters: Tina, Honey and an unnamed man… An unnamed man whose weapon of choice is a crossbow and who is sick of their former group (We’re done kneeling”)… For those who have read the comics, this man should sound familiar. AMC has confirmed that this unnamed man is indeed Dwight.
So what’s significant about Dwight, other than thinking he could take on Daryl and get away with stealing his crossbow? He means Negan is coming, along with the death of a major character.
Now the Dwight we just met isn’t exactly how he’s depicted in the comics. In the comics, he has his own crossbow and his face is disfigured. TV Dwight has acquired a crossbow but hasn’t be injured.
Which means that if the TV show holds up to the comic Dwight, there is still some time before we meet Negan.
