There was a substantial amount of discuss the final couple of months in regards to the return of Maggie Rhee within the ninth season of The Strolling Lifeless. Contract negotiations for the following season of The Strolling Lifeless stalled with Lauren Cohan method again in February when Cohan requested to be paid on par with Daryl and Rick. Just a few weeks later, then-showrunner Scott Gimple even acknowledged that it’s attainable that the present wouldn’t have her subsequent season, though two weeks after that, Gimple mentioned that he was assured she’d be again. “I shan’t even entertain the thought.” Gimple mentioned, “We’re speaking; I’m fairly optimistic. We’re figuring it out. The timing may work effectively, so all good.” Within the meantime, Cohan signed on to a pilot for one more community, ABC, though it isn’t but assured to go to air.

Some questioned Cohan’s function in the way forward for the collection. Whereas her character continues to dwell on in The Strolling Lifeless comics, her function isn’t what it as soon as was within the collection when Glenn was nonetheless alive, and it appeared like now is perhaps an excellent time for her to leap ship.

Nonetheless, the season eight finale of The Strolling Lifeless threw us all for a loop when Maggie teased her function in the way forward for the collection. Whereas some could have agreed with Rick’s determination to comply with the spirit of Carl and let Negan dwell, Maggie was not one in all them. Her response to Rick letting Negan stay alive will be described in a single phrase: furious.


In reality, as we noticed on the finish of the episode, Maggie has new plans in post-war The Hilltop As she confides to Jesus — and Daryl — she has plans to rebuild The Hilltop, larger and higher in a position to defend itself. Why? As a result of she desires to actual revenge towards Rick and Michonne for letting Negan dwell. “We’re going to bide our time, watch for our second, after which we’re going to point out [Rick].”

Is Maggie subsequent season’s villain? Is The Strolling Lifeless establishing a showdown between The Hilltop and Alexandria?

Now that is fascinating.

If that’s certainly the case, Maggie’s function on the present is essential subsequent season because the chief of The Hilltop. No marvel she needed a pay elevate, and if I’m AMC, I might give her no matter she is asking for. That storyline is one most viewers will likely be extremely excited to see.
