Where is Wade from The Walking Dead, s6e6? What is the not-in-universe reason the character has not been in the show since (eg. did the show wrote itself into a corner or change of character direction, etc.)?
In s6e6 of TWD, Daryl meets some of the first Saviors seen on the show (Dwight, Sherry, and Tina) as they are on the run from other Saviors led by someone called Wade, whose face in never shown. The show is currently on s8e5 and the character Wade has not been seen again (even during the meeting of the Savior captains before the horde attack on the Savior compound).
Was this supposed to be some kind of initial misdirection for introducing the character of Negan? Is Wade a character from the comics they were just homage-ing to? The episode where he appeared seemed to give time to introducing him with a specific kind of personality (rather than some generic bad guy), so it seems weird that we have not seen that character ever since and not know what happened with him.
