Initially, Glenn escaped with T-Dog, another survivor, due to his knowledge of Atlanta’s outlet. Glenn, in the second episode, uses his radio to rescue Rick from the group of zombies surrounding the tank and takes him to the group of other survivors. Overall Glenn is a valuable asset for the group of survivors.

Negan, originally Negan Smith, is a fictional character from The Walking Dead portrayed by Jefferey Dean Morgan. Negan made his first appearance in the horror series in the episode “Last Day On Earth” and his last appearance in the episode Issue.

The character was created by Robert Kim and was based on Henry Rollins. Negan works as a gym teacher and the leader of the savior group, under whom Rick and other survivors from his group obey his commands. Negan is married to Annie, and the couple has one child together.

Why Did Negan Kill Glenn?

For everyone excited to know the reason behind Negan’s decision to end Glenn’s life, the reason was nothing but his attempt to make an example to the survivors of Rick’s group. Negan wanted to tell the rest of the survivors indirectly about what would happen to them if they dared to cross him.

Negan ends Glenn’s life by using his Lucille to bash his head. The first victim of Negan was Abraham, to prove to others that he wasn’t scared of anyone, even if they were bigger than him.

Negan killed Glenn because of the way Darly retaliated when Negan ended Abraham’s life. Negan killing Glenn paved the way for the bigger plotline in the series, and it was far more important to end his life, according to the comic series.

Negan decided to kill Glenn as he served as the emotional support of the group, and his death would ultimately hurt the group. Negan was determined to make Rick’s survivor group suffer emotionally, thus the reason behind him swinging the bat in a way that Glenn’s blood would spurt on Rick’s face.

This led to Maggie stewing and planning revenge on Negan for ending her husband’s life. Negan feels sorry for his action toward Glenn after becoming a father, and he apologizes for his actions to Maggie in the series’ final episode. Maggie refuses to forgive Negan for ending her husband’s life.
