'Walking Dead' Director Explains That Shocking Negan Sex Scene

Bill Bradley

The Walking Dead” midseason 10 premiere had a rare sexual content warning ahead of the episode. All we can say is we should’ve listened.

Warning! “Walking Dead” spoilers below.

The latest episode of the series, “Squeeze,” ended on a devastating note as the fates of Connie (Lauren Ridloff) and Magna (Nadia Hilker) are up in the air following a cave collapse. However, for many fans, that’s probably not even close to the most shocking moment.
