      Seriously, if you led a couple of hundred men and a dozen or so got killed, how p!ssed would you be?

        I would have killed Daryl, Abraham and Rick. These are the most dangerous, through size, reputation or leadership position.

          I would have left Maggie and Glenn (as they have a kid they would be easy to intimidate). Probably leave Aaron and Eugene as they looked suitably intimidated.

            It's likely Sasha and Rosita would probably go the way that attractive women do in these situations. Michonne would probably have just been killed for trying to defend herself.

              So, yeah Glenn, Carl, Eugene, Aaron, Maggie, Rosita and Sasha left. Put Glenn in charge on the understanding Maggie and thier kid would be in danger and most of the muscle and leadership dead with the rest traumatised.

    You're right, it really made zero sense to leave Rick alive. Alive he is dangerous. Dead, he's no problem.


Granted you're going to be proven right in the end. But I see why Negan wanted Rick alive. Rick has someone to lose (Carl). Rick will presumably do whatever Negan says to keep Carl safe. And the more he breaks Rick's spirit the more he breaks the spirits of Rick's group.

Negan doesn't want Rick dead. He wants Rick to live as his bitch (nothing sexual) for the rest for his life. Really it's classic super villainy...villains end up going for the hurt not the kill. Villains don't want to kill Spider-Man...they want to break Spider-Man and have him acknowledge they're better than him.

To me this season sounds like it might be like Breaking Bad season 4. Where the protagonists are at the villain's mercy all season long and it's just a pressure cooker of stress.
