Do you think Eugene is serious and heartfelt in joining the saviors and being Negan? or do you think he was just kinda saying what Negan wanted to hear?
I think he really does enjoy the pickles he was gifted. He likes being listened to and people respecting his intelligence. He also likes living - we knew that all along. He is Negan as long as Negan is the best game in town. I don't believe he is running a game on Negan or has any real loyalty to Rick's crew. If he does end up turning on Negan it will because he measured the odds and its in his best interest but for now he is Negan. In a way he's kind of the Golum of the show. His precious is his life and that may lead him to be the accidental hero in the end.
