On the midseason premiere of The Walking Dead, Negan and Alpha, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Samantha Morton, respectively, appeared in a scene in which they were about to have sex. It’s a scene fans wish they could unsee.
Negan had helped root out a possible spy and Alpha wanted to reward him. She takes him into the woods and tells him to undress. He does so then turns around to find that she had also undressed… except for her make made of decaying human skin.
“You’re a crass man,” Alpha says. “I reckoned you might appreciate a crass reward.”
Before they kiss, Negan even asks Alpha if she’s going to leave the mask on. When she asks if it disturbs him, Negan replies, “Not at all. Weirdly, the opposite.”

They kiss and the scene switches to a wide shot, showing their filthy, naked bodies embracing each other.
And while Negan may not have been disturbed, fans definitely were.
