When it comes to heroes and villains, it’s required that they clash. However, some of the best heroes and villains are essentially mirrors of each other, and thus aren’t that different even if one is willing to wipe out a lot of people to make a point. This seems to be the case in Walking Dead, as showrunner Scott Gimple believes that Rick and Negan aren’t so different as some people think they are.
“I think if we followed Negan we might even be in the same place that we are with Rick where we’re like, ‘Whoa. What you’re doing there seems like the behavior of a bad person,'” Gimple said. “What’s interesting is, I think for Rick’s experience, he’s justified in what he’s been doing. The world has formed him this way and what he’s done has generally been a reaction to being threatened and trying to make sure that his people live. Things are getting greyer and greyer and greyer. But I think the things that Rick has done you can hold up against the things that Negan has done and it’s not a vast gulf between those two but the way that they operate is very different. Their philosophies are very different and that’s maybe where we see one person being the hero and one person being the villain.”
It is interesting for sure, and I’m sure this will be a question that fills the void until Walking Dead returns this fall.
