Negan and Father Gabriel have an interesting conversation in the talked about scene from season 8 episode 5 of The Walking Dead titled ‘The Big Scary U’.
Season 8 episode 5 of The Walking Dead took fans away from much of the activity surrounding the groups at The Hilltop, The Kingdom, and Alexandria and instead focused on Negan and The Saviors at The Sanctuary.
There were quite a few big moments from this episode titled ‘The Big Scary U’, including a helicopter in the sky, a scuffle between Rick and Daryl, fighting through walkers, and an uprising from the workers, but none of those was the scene AMC featured in their weekly video series.
Here is the most talked about scene from episode 805 titled ‘Negan’s Confession’ as shared on the official YouTube channel of AMC:
Still trapped inside the trailer at The Sanctuary, Negan takes the opportunity to find out more about Father Gabriel and mutual interest in why they are who they are is beginning to form between the two.

After a failed attempt to overpower or kill Negan, Father Gabriel retreated to the back room of the trailer and closed the door. He says he wants a confession from Negan before they can work together to escape the situation.
Negan listened to Gabriel talk about shutting out his congregation as walkers ate them alive. He says it was cowardly and selfish, but confession is supposed to be the horrible things people have done.
Taking his turn, Negan tells the story of his first wife, and how he lied to her and cheated on her even though she was sick and then was unable to put down the zombified version of her after she died and came back to life. That weakness stuck with him.
This scene gave some more humanity to Negan after knowing him only as the brutal man who smashed the heads in of some of our favorite characters, but was it enough that it should have been the most talked about scene from this week’s episode of The Walking Dead?
