|“||Why the face? I hope you're not putting this on us... When we showed your people a way forward, we gave you rules. You broke the rules, so some folks had to die. The one who fired the first shot we strung him up to make an example of him! Could've stopped there! But your people still didn't listen. You wanted to fight... us! So this, is how it has to be!!||„|
|~ Simon in his first appearance.|
|“||Think about it - what if it’s the last day on Earth for you? For someone you love? What if that’s true? Maybe you should be extra nice to those people in that RV, ’cause you never know... just like that. Be kind to each other. Like you said... like it was your last day on Earth.||„|
|~ Simon to Rick Grimes.|
Simon is a character and antagonist in the AMC television series The Walking Dead.
He serves as the secondary antagonist in the Season 6 finale, "Last Day on Earth". Overall, he serves as the tertiary antagonist of the second half of Season 6 and as the possible tertiary antagonist of Season 7. He is a high-ranking member of The Saviors and is one of Negan's right-hand men, along with Dwight.
He is portrayed by Steven Ogg, who is most famously known for portraying Trevor Phillips in Grand Theft Auto V.
Simon was first encountered when he and a band of others Saviors hunt down a man in the woods. They then mercilessly beat him and drag him to a road, intending to show him to Rick's group as a warning. When Rick and his group arrive at the scene in their RV, they are stopped by a roadblock made by Simon's group. He orders Rick to hand over their belongings and when refused, Simon says that they will not negotiate and their deal is the only deal. Simon then warns Rick about what will happen to those who oppose Negan and recommends him to treat his friends like it was their last day on earth, knowing full well what Negan is going to do with them.
He is encountered once again in the climax, when a large group of Saviors led by Simon ambush Rick's group in the woods. He then orders them to hand over their guns while threatening to shoot Carl. He also orders Dwight to go get the rest of the group that were captured earlier. After Rick and others are forced to line up and get on their knees, Simon knocks on the RV and summons Negan himself to make an entrance. When Negan asks which one is the leader, Simon points at Rick, telling him that he was the man responsible for the death of his men. He is present when Negan makes his speech and beats one of Rick's group to death with Lucille.
