20. More of Negan’s right hand man Simon

Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been absolutely killing it as Negan on The Walking Dead. But that doesn’t mean he’s the only awesome villain currently on the series. One particular baddie who sticks out from the rest of the Saviors is Simon, Negan’s lieutenant played by Steven Ogg.

Simon is a pretty menacing character, but he’s a very entertaining villain. He does follow Negan’s orders, but when the boss isn’t around, Simon is in charge. And he takes full advantage of it. He makes it clear he is only going to give Negan the information that he wants to give him. His confidence makes him a natural leader, potentially able to take over the Saviors should something happen with Negan.

In any case, things are always interesting, albeit a bit tense, when Simon is around. It was quite entertaining when he showed up at the Hilltop for a collection from Gregory. I don’t think I am expecting Simon to have a lifespan of more than a few seasons. Bad guys don’t exactly fare too well against the heroes. But let’s get some good stuff out of this Simon guy in the back half of Season 7.
