Negan is ... the nightmare a straight, conservative man might conjure: a man who sexually humiliates you while also vying for your wife and kids.
Negan is introduced in Season 6, episode 16. The Saviors capture Rick's group. Negan kills two of their members, Abraham and Glenn, for retribution for attacks on the Saviors and to bring them under his control. Under Negan the survivors must give the Saviors half of everything they produce. Rick tries to follow orders, but after Negan kills two more members of their group, Spencer and Olivia, Rick begins to agree with others that they should fight back. At the end of Season 7 All Out War breaks out between the Saviors and the Alexandria, Hilltop and Kingdom groups.
