Maggie, Negan, and the Dama walk into a bar…
The Big Picture
- Maggie must confront her past trauma and move on from Negan to save her relationship with her son in The Walking Dead: Dead City Season 2.
- The Dama wants to utilize Negan’s brutal nature and fear-induced leadership to unite New York’s communities under her control.
- Dead City‘s Season 1 finale sets up a civil war between the Burazi and New Babylon, with Negan caught in the middle as tensions rise over resources.
Now that The Walking Dead: Dead City Season 1 has come to a close and with a Season 2 already confirmed by AMC, fans have been left wondering what could be in store for Lauren Cohan’s Maggie and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan when they return to our screens. While the finale, “Doma Smo,” wrapped up a number of Dead City’s biggest plot points, it also spent a lot of time setting up what’s to come for Manhattan’s ensemble of misfit characters.
As the Dead City Season 1 storyline progressed, we were introduced to an array of new characters, some of which were interesting and added value to the character-driven show, while other characters didn’t work and met their less-than-exciting demise after adding very little to the plot. But as the ensemble grew larger, more threats appeared, and it looks like Negan and Maggie could have their hands full when they return in Season 2.
