The Season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead proved what fans were already thinking about Gregory, the former leader of Hilltop. The shifty man was revealed as an ally of Negan, as he came out of the Sanctuary to tell the people of Hilltop to put down their weapons and go home if they wanted their families to survive.
Having escaped from the Sanctuary attack, stealing Gabriel's car and leaving him to die, Gregory has arrived back home to Hilltop, where he was hoping he could lie his way back into the community with no consequence. When Maggie confronted him, Gregory said that he didn't give Negan any information, but that somebody else was feeding the villain Rick's attack plans.
So, who's the mole working for Negan?
The easiest answer here is Father Gabriel, who has had some suspect loyalty over the years. Remember, he's turned his back on Rick before.
Most will argue that he's turned over a new life, having had Rick's back on a number of occasions these last two seasons. Have you ever thought that maybe he's been acting more confident because he's got another deal on the side?
Perhaps Gabriel is playing the long game, and he's had his safety in mind all along. Could that be the reason for Gabriel's change in attitude last season?
There's also the whole trailer incident to consider. Gabriel might be safe in that trailer considering he's holed up with Negan, his current ally.prevnext
We all know Eugene has taken Negan's side at this point but he's been gone long enough to have missed all of Rick's current war strategy.
However, knowing Eugene, there are still a couple of ways he could be feeding Negan information.
There's a good possibility he has something back in Alexandria bugged, giving him the opportunity to listen in on what's happening at home. He could also potentially have someone in Alexandria feeding him information, although that's much less likely.
Eugene could also be stealing information from Dwight, who is helping Rick create the plans.prevnext
That sets up one of the other likely theories going around. Is Dwight the mole?
Yes, Dwight hates Negan, so it has seemed like his allegiance with Rick is fairly strong. But could he have been playing the people of Alexandria the entire team?0comments
If this is true, Daryl will have plenty of words on the situation because he's been against Dwight the whole time. Fortunately, this theory doesn't seem all too likely.
Let's hope, for Rick's sake, that Dwight is telling the truth.prev
