At the end of the eighth season of The Walking Dead, there's been a dramatic shift in the way the world works. As they walk to the next location, Jesus speaks with Morgan about the struggles he's been having. Since they pretty much followed what went along with the comics anyways. When it was announced that Lennie James's longtime Walking Dead character Morgan Jones would join the series, that question loomed even larger. How they did this is somewhat incredible. He says that he remembers the past and them walking along a path when Carl was a child. It sure looked like that was going to be the end of the leather-wearing baddie, but at the last second Rick called for Siddiq and told him to "save him". Following his moral compass and leaving things behind that hurt him has been a consistent theme with his character, even if he loves what he is leaving. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
So what now does Negan offer? He met Rosita. And those people infected him with humanity. He goes on to protect and help Morgan multiple times.
Kill of the week: Morgan's slice "n" dice Savior victim. She ends up being a former journalist who happens to have a modified armored vehicle with some awesome weaponry on it. It would betray that character if she were depicted similar to Alpha, who is remorseless and uncaring, the kind of mother who would allow others to abuse her daughter. Something interesting that they did was fast forward the timeline of Fear the Walking Dead to have it run at the same time as The Walking Dead. The ending of the season premiere certainly set the Clark family (along with Strand and Luciana) up as antagonists to the newest members of Fear the Walking Dead, but there is little indication that they're playing The Whisperers, a group that disguises itself by wearing the skin of zombies. Earlier episodes this season already began laying the groundwork for this daring new direction (see the addition of Georgie), and following the events of the season 8 finale, the series is now free to explore these new ideas.
Barry Lewis: Facebook and the illusion of privacy
On account of the shadow profile, he has an instant association with Ali in Facebook's "Friend's You May Know" feature. Many users of the website are already frustrated by the amount of ads that they have to deal with on a regular basis.
The show also introduced a new character that doesn't have a flawless match in the comics. The feel of the season 4 premiere makes it seems like an entirely new series spinoff. On Sunday night, however, Fear the Walking Dead proved the naysayers wrong-again. This is a good thing for Morgan, as his story in "The Walking Dead" doesn't seem to be over just yet, despite the move. Morgan did not have to watch the first three seasons to understand what is happening...
This week on the Season 8 finale of The Walking Dead, everyone freaked out for a few minutes when it looked like Rick killed Negan. But surprise! Eugene made faulty ammo that caused all of their weapons to backfire, including Negan's very own. So far, new show-runners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have largely started fresh: at the beginning of the episode, Morgan meets John-a drawling cowboy with an antique revolver who had to stop talking to himself because "I started to enjoy the conversation too much".
Obviously, "The Walking Dead" is too much of a cash cow for AMC to part with the show blithely, but at this point, it wouldn't be insane to start contemplating an end game, one that would allow viewers to follow Rick's story, at least, toward some sort of natural conclusion.
