I wish it wasn't true but I'm so over Walking Dead I won't be watching Rick's final season.  I just can't reconcile the fact that they've let Negan live and stay on the show.

What he did to Glenn and the others in that scene was too inhumane to grant him a chance at redemption and I'll never get over it.  It was too traumatic and every time I look at Negan I think of it.

I presume he's still on the show because Jeffrey Dean Morgan's got the charisma and now they don't want to lose him but it means the show's moral compass has been comprised by insisting that we accept him. NO I WON'T so it's farewell to Walking Dead. 

Re- Housekeepers.... talk about knocking off a concept! The storyline's exactly the same as Devious Maids.
