Negan saves Judith Grimes
Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) takes on the ferocious blizzard to find and save Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming).
The Walking Dead’s villain from season seven appeared to be on track to redeem himself as he puts his own wellbeing at risk to save the daughter of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).
Judith found herself battling the snowy conditions in the wilderness on her own with only Daryl’s dog (Norman Reedus) dog for company after becoming separated from the group.
Negan selflessly took to the snow to scream out Judith’s name and found her struggling with the conditions.
Morgan’s character picked Judith up and carried her to safety, wrapping his own jacket around her in the process.
The scene has huge significance for the character of Negan
