The Governor was all charm and class on the outside, but his inner workings were that of a cold blooded killer. Don't count Maggie out just yet. Cohan, 31, looks gorgeous and sexy and showered! Just because of the Negan decision? No, Maggie will not be returning this season. It also has a class system, which is bound to create some problems for Alexandrians. To explain why she was doing it and what her plans and goals were.
We already have some plans brewing that I think is pretty cool. Is Michonne leaving The Walking Dead , too?. Previously, and revealed that there's a definite plan for the character going forward, even though Maggie won't be returning in Season 9. This post will have spoilers. Plus, did you know Danai is an award-winning playwright? After departing from Hilltop Maggie along with Hershel and Georgie start a new community, its not clear where or how this new community will fit in with the future episodes and seasons of the show, but Angela Kang a previous showrunner for The Walking Dead hinted that although Cohen will not be back this season there is still a lot in store for her character.
The show seemed like it was hinting at that during parts of this season, but then the two started working together again…but now this secret council happened, so who knows. This episode confirms that Maggie isn't dead, but she has abandoned her home at Hilltop and left Jesus to lead in her place. The character of Maggie had long-sought revenge against Negan Jeffrey Dean Morgan for murdering her husband, Glenn Rhee Steven Yeun. His kingdom is gone thanks to the Saviors, but his legacy is still pretty solid. It was another good episode, the stuff between Daryl and Carol was particularly great a haircut! Check it out by or listen below.
Maggie is, in fact, alive and she has abandoned her home at Hilltop leaving Jesus to lead in her place. But what happened to Maggie? Sure, I get the idea that they want to kill Negan, but that seems separate from the idea that Rick and Michonne need to be deposed. There was a lot of speculation when Cohan left the series about her possible reasons for making an exit, especially amid ongoing contract negotiations. Why did Lauren Cohan leave The Walking Dead? But when it was reported earlier this year that Cohan would also be leaving the series, it took fans by surprise.

Perhaps the strangest thing about the episode was that there were almost no deaths at all. Eugene sabotaging the bullets had been pretty well telegraphed for the past week or two, including tonight when he was very adamant about Negan testing the bullets and making sure the Saviors all shot at once in a firing line. Reportedly Danai Gurira is ready to hang up her katana and will finish out this season and appear only a handful of times in Season 10. All of this seems up in the air, however, with Maggie not necessarily returning, and overall point of their plans still nebulous. While all her plays to date have been off-Broadway affairs or regional showcases, they've all been acclaimed, so it's only a matter of time before she's accepting a Tony for her performance either on stage or at the writing desk. A few random Saviors were killed in the initial gunfight after their weapons exploded, but that was it.
This was a way to write the character of Maggie off the show but still leave an opening for actress Lauren Cohan to return to the show. Fans stick through the series with all of the fighting, blood and ; it seems that no character is safe. I guess the point is maybe we do someday see the exact moment Maggie left, if we do end up getting flashbacks. The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.
But that doesn't mean she's gone forever. But setting her up as a potential threat to Rick may backfire sharply, because as this season comes to an end, actress Lauren Cohan has still not signed on for season 9 of The Walking Dead, and has actually. Maggie briefly took over a leadership role at Hilltop, only to realize that she would rather seek out safety for her son, Hershel. Georgie is the one who gave them all those blueprints last season for rebuilding their lives, in exchange for knowledge. That was the revelation that Maggie had already left the Hilltop to go help out other communities with Georgie. I guess Negan is worse than Dwight but still, it seems a little hypocritical.
We learn later on in the episode that Maggie left Hilltop with baby Hershel to help Georgie rebuild the communities. There have been rumors that Cohan would come back in a limited role to continue Maggie's arc but it would make more sense if she took over the lead role in the series. We're hoping we go back. In the episode, she showed up with two women and an amazing record collection, offering to help Hilltop.
