Here’s not here. All I can say is: Wow. One of my favorites. Definitely top 10, possibly top 5. We didn’t find out anymore about Glenn, and it was tough watching because of that. I still loved it, and I totally called it! Before we get to all that,
***** Spoiler Alert *****
At the beginning of the episode we see a shot of Morgan talking to someone. I immediately knew who it was: The Wolf who he hit at the end of episode 2. I questioned whether he died or not. To me, it didn’t appear that he did. Now we know why. It all makes sense. I can’t be mad at Morgan for wanting to save all life. If I was, I would be mad that Morgan is here now.
Here’s not here was a beautifully crafted episode. It definitely going to go down as one of the top 10–not just in my book. Like I said at the top, it was a little harder to watch because of the pacing and I’m sure most of us want to resolve things from last week. We will have to take a deep breath and hope it comes next week.
We get to see how crazy Morgan really was. Can you imagine if he caught up to Rick and the group before running into Eastman? It would have been a total disaster. Eastman’s story was pretty fantastic too. I wish he would have survived. Gimple also kind of broke his own code: He said if you don’t see someone die onscreen, they don’t die. Clearly Eastman was not seen to take his own life. He mentioned he had a gun. Then we see a grave with his name. We have to assume Morgan buried him. Right? I kind of wish they did something in slow-motion. Some sad music. Him looking up at the sky. Something like that. He deserved something. Didn’t he?
There really wasn’t much to discuss from the current story. Just the lone Wolf from the beginning and ending. They leave us hanging with the thought of Morgan wanting to rehab this dude. Problem is: Morgan is not a forensic psychologist. He has a newly converted creed of: all life is precious. He is in a community that just got attacked by a brainwashed band of butchers. He really isn’t qualified to tell if someone is rehabbed or not. At this stage in the game, you can’t take that chance. Not with an entire community on the line.
Questions: The biggest question on my mind is: Who is going to find the Wolf? I have a suspicion it will be Carol, and that confrontation will be epic. This may or may not linger for the rest of this half-season. If Carol finds the dude and one-shots him, will that send Morgan back over the edge? I get the feeling that he might snap again. I hope I’m wrong.
We have to wait a whole ‘nother week to find out anything about Glenn and Rick.
Zombie Kill of the week: There wasn’t really an impactful kill this week. Routine stuff here and there. I did like the form Morgan had when he flipped the one walker onto the spiky things on the ground.
