Quote:No, they did not insert themselves. Negan's people were already attacking Rick's group. It's just a lucky thing Abe found that rocket launcher, or he, Daryl, and Sasha would be long dead by now.
They did insert themselves into the Saviors extorting the Hilltop Colony. Once they started slaughtering Saviors to secure trade with Hilltop they were messing with the protection racket. Not that they were morally wrong to meddle...they were just really dumb and started murdering people they knew nothing about. I mean can they say for sure that every person they murdered was also a murderer...I doubt it. Most were probably like Rick's group...they were press ganged into Negan's crew.
They were really already in it by then, not inserting themselves.
