Jeffrey Dean Morgan Teases Negan's Next Move On 'The Walking Dead'

Even though the war arrived at Negan's doorstep in the Season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead, Jeffrey Dean Morgan doesn't seem very worried for his character.

In an interview with ComicBook.com on the red carpet for the show's 100th episode, Morgan had an enthusiastic tease for his character's continued villainy which might spell trouble for Seth Gilliam's Father Gabriel character. Check out the interview in the video above.

In Episode 8x01, Morgan's Negan marched onto his balcony with all of the confidence in the world. However, his confidence was met only with threats and gunfire from Rick's army. It was a sudden twist for the character which left him hobbling and seeking safety outside of his own home. Surround by walkers, Negan stumbled into a nearby trailer where he found a familiar face.

"I think we left off with Negan and Father Gabriel saying, 'I hope you got your s---in' pants on,'" Morgan said. "I think next is seeing what's in that trailer!"

While Gilliam remains optimistic for his character's survival, Morgan is simply excited for fans to see what's next between Negan and Gabriel. "I love Father G and I love Seth," Morgan said. "That's gonna be a fun episode. This whole year, it's flat out balls to the wall the whole time."
