The Walking Dead Fans Respond as Negan Spreads the Love Around in 'Sing Me a Song'

Chandler Riggs as Carl - The Walking Dead _ Season 7, Episode 5 (Gene Page/AMC)

There are two kinds of The Walking Dead fans: those who love Carl and those who would love to see him die.

Feelings from both camps came to the fore Sunday night during the 90-minute episode 7 titled “Sing Me a Song.” Those who love Carl (Chandler Riggs) delighted in his bravado.

Meanwhile, those who have grown tired of Carl just wanted him to listen to Jesus (Tom Payne) and jump off the truck.

But you have to give Carl credit for at least trying to kill Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Although he killed two of the evil dictator’s men instead – this kid needs to spend some time at the shooting range – he snuck into the Savior’s camp with a purpose, and he tried his darnedest to make it happen.

The Walking Dead Norman Reedus (Gene Page/AMC)

After he missed the shot, Dwight (Austin Amelio) overpowered Carl and then Carl saw Daryl (Norman Reedus) looking pitiful and homeless and it broke everybody’s hearts.

After praising Carl for being a badass, Negan took Carl on a stroll around his living quarters with the first stop being his harem of wives. While it was fascinating to see how many women fulfill Negan’s needs, what caught a number of fans’ gazes was the villains’ diverse tastes especially when it came to his African-American wife.


Anyway, what started out as a friendly visit quickly turned menacing when Sherry (Christine Evangelista) ratted out Amber (Autumn Dial) for “making a mistake.” Turns out Amber cheated on Negan with her ex-boyfriend Mark (Griffin Freeman), which meant Negan had to burn poor Mark’s face with an iron just like he did Dwight.

Guess Negan only believes in one-sided polygamy. Sigh. Why haven’t the Saviors risen up and killed Negan again?


We’re jumping ahead a little because before Negan got iron-happy with Mark’s poor face, he made Carl take off his bandage so he could see the mangled remains of what used to be Carl’s eye. This went horribly of course because Carl cried, which reminded Negan that Carl is still a kid.

Carl also revealed that he killed his mom Lori before she could turn and the backstory pleased Negan, who called Carl a serial killer in the making. But Negan still hadn’t decided how to punish Carl until Carl boldly threatened and challenged Negan to his own detriment, eventually inspiring Negan to go Alexandria where he stumbled upon Judith (Chloe and Sophia Garcia-Frizzi).

Argh! This is why people hate you, Carl.


Others grew annoyed because Carl didn’t try to kill Negan once more – like when he held Lucille for Negan.

But the Carl and Negan storyline isn’t the only thing that riled up fans. Let’s see, Michonne (Danai Gurira) laid a zombie roadblock for the Saviors that proved effective. Michonne even whistled while she worked.

Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Spencer (Austin Nichols) went on a road trip but that came to a quick end when Spencer started talking trash about Rick (Andrew Lincoln). So Gabriel asked Spencer to stop the car and walked home. Later, Spencer nabbed a crossbow and some canned goods from an chunky zombie trapped in a tree.


Speaking of Rick, he and Aaron (Ross Marquand) discovered a former survivalist outpost. The good news is the guy is dead now. The bad news is all of his guns and supplies are in the middle of a lake filled with zombies.
