One of The Walking Dead Season 10’s biggest mysteries hinges on what Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is actually up to now that it appears he’s partnered with Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the Whisperers. According to Cailey Fleming, who portrays Judith Grimes, she believes it’s a “good thing” that Negan escaped from jail because he could potentially helpful in the fight against Alpha and the Whisperers.
However, Fleming said it was something she “can’t talk about.”
“I think that Judith thinks that it’s a good thing [Negan escaped], because … he was just picking tomatoes, right? He had this bodyguard and all he could do was pick tomatoes and he’d go back in his cell,” Fleming said on Instagram Live during a takeover of The Walking Dead Instagram page.
“But I think that she thinks that he can be useful for the Whisperers, and he could help with the whole Whisperer thing that’s gonna… the Whisperer thing that I can’t talk about.”
The Whisperer thing thing that she can’t talk about? Ugh! Don’t leave us hanging there!
Fleming may be referencing a key moment from the comic books, as Fleming said it’s “so hard not to spoil anything.. It is like the hardest thing in the whole entire world, because I like to tell people what’s gonna happen, but I can’t, because I have to keep it all in until the episode comes out.”
“I think that Judith thinks Negan could be helpful,” she said. “That’s all I’ll say.”
“She has so many different people that she has special relationships with, but seeing that many people don’t trust Negan, and knowing that Judith does, they have a really special bond that I don’t think she has with anybody else,” Fleming said.
What do you think that Fleming may be hinting at that she can’t tell us about? Do you think that The Walking Dead will say goodbye to Alpha and the Whisperers in Season 10 or will it stretch out the Whisperer War into Season 11?
