“It’s like, “Okay, I’m not sad now. I know we’ll get there.” But it becomes murky.”

Lauren also described the journey that Maggie takes from the first episode of season 11 through the eighth.
“It’s about fielding a lot of surprise,” she noted. “If I was just making some sort of illustration of eight episodes, it’s like you take a couple of steps. Then something comes at you from the side. And then you take one more step and something yanks you from behind.”
As for Negan?
“Meanwhile there’s this furnace internally of whatever the conflict is with Negan that you don’t really have time to deal with,” revealed Cohan.

If Maggie decides to eliminate Negan, “it seems like it’s the solution to the problem,” pointed out the actress.
But… “If she lets herself go down that road, I think she has truly let go of who she was. This is just Lauren speaking, but I think there’s something to be gained for how they could reach a resolution,” added Cohan.

Adding to the cons, Lauren shared that Maggie “does know that if she lets that dark wave sort of crest and wash over her, then it’s over. Everything you have struggled to keep alive in all these years as you’ve traipsed the earth, looking for a better life and a life worth living, it’s over.”
Moreover, Cohan pointed out that “these animalistic people who are just eking out a life — that’s them if they let it go. That’s them if they give in to kill or be killed, and we can’t let that happen. And she, thank God, has Hershel [Kien Michael Spiller] to fight for, and to fight for that life.”
