The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus ‘hated’ Negan becoming The Whisperers’ new Alpha and forcing him to bend the knee

THE Walking Dead’s Noman Reedus ‘hated’ Negan becoming the Whisperers’ new Alpha and forcing him to kneel down at his feet.

The latest episode of the hit AMC drama saw Norman's character Daryl hold Negan captive after failing to believe he had joined forces with Carol to bring down Alpha, the leader of the Whisperers.

When Negan took Daryl to where he had placed Alpha's head on a pike, it had gone, and the men soon found themselves confronted by three Whisperers.

But to Daryl's surprise, the men kneeled down in front of him and declared he was the new leader of the Whisperers after taking out Alpha.

Negan then demanded a shot gun off one of the Whisperers, before getting Daryl to go down on his knees before him.

Speaking about the scene, Jeffrey Dean Morgan - who plays Negan - told Talking Dead: "I loved it, Norman hated it, which made me like it more.

"It was great. It just kind of pivoted that whole scene, and I think when Negan realizes what's going on, he absolutely becomes gleeful, which was fun because I had a crossbow pointed at my face the whole episode.

"So to have that whole moment of tables turning was great."

Daryl soon got another surprise when Negan turned the shot gun on one of the Whisperers before the pair tackled the other two together.

However, show runner Angela Kang told Entertainment Weekly the latest incident didn't mean Daryl and Negan were now friends.

She explained: "I think there's a little bit of a thaw, but I don't think he really loves this guy yet.

"I don't know that he totally trusts him. He was very aware that Negan was having maybe a bit too much fun once he got the gun back from the Whisperers.

"Negan is complicated, and Negan killed people that mattered a lot to Daryl.

"For Daryl, the loss of Glenn and Abraham was huge for him, and all these people that died in that war, and I don't think that that's something that's easily left behind."
