Morgan participates in the defense of the Hilltop Colony and helps to repel the attack and then to deal with the reanimated residents who have been turned by the Saviors' tainted weapons. Afterwards, Morgan is saddened to learn that Henry is missing.
Overwhelmed and having found a walker with Henry's fighting stick impaled through it, Morgan gives Henry up for dead and abandons Carol to continue the search on her own.
Morgan tells Carol that "I don't die, I just see it" and feels that he can't save anyone he cares about. Instead, Morgan joins Rick's efforts to track down the escaped Savior prisoners which include Jared. The two men are captured by the Saviors, but Rick tries to convince the Saviors to release them as a herd of walkers are coming.
When the herd arrives, Rick and Morgan are released and then turn on the Saviors, killing several of them. Morgan has a final confrontation with Jared, ending with Morgan trapping Jared and ensuring he is devoured by walkers, getting his revenge for the murder of Benjamin.

Upon returning to the Hilltop, Morgan is shocked but relieved to find that Carol found and rescued Henry. Morgan informs Henry that he got revenge upon Benjamin's killer, but Henry just apologizes after seeing Morgan's state. In " Wrath ," Morgan's mental state continues to deteriorate, causing him to now hallucinate Jared and accidentally knock Henry over while going after Alden and the freed Savior prisoners who were returning from a legitimate errand for the Hilltop.

Morgan extends an offer from Rick for Jadis, the former leader of the Scavengers, to join Alexandria so that she doesn't have to be alone. Jadis, revealing her real name to be Anne, accepts his offer while Morgan stays by himself in the Junkyard that had acted as the home to the Scavengers. Fear the Walking Dead[ edit ] See also: Fear the Walking Dead season 4 Shortly after the war with the Saviors, Morgan is visited in the Junkyard by Jesus, Carol and Rick who all separately attempt to get Morgan to return with them.
Rick warns Morgan that no matter how far he runs, he will eventually find himself with people again. Subsequently, Morgan leaves the Junkyard and begins working his way west, ending up in Texas where he meets John Dorie. After running into a hostile group of survivors, the two men are rescued by a journalist named Althea and are then captured by Victor StrandLuciana Galvez and Nick and Alicia Clark.

During this time, Morgan's group discovers that a series of truck drivers led by a man called Polar Bear have been leaving supplies along the roadways for anyone who needs them. However, a powerful hurricane hits, separating the group. While taking refuge in a semi-truck during the storm, Morgan is accidentally transported to Mississippi where he makes three new friends in Jim, Sarah and Wendell.
The group makes their way back to Texas, leaving boxes of supplies belonging to the original truck driver along the road for other survivors, but come into conflict with a woman named Martha who was driven insane after losing her husband in a car accident when no one would help her. Did they really kill Morgan? Of course not The raid on the Saviour base appeared to have brought the season's first headline casualty as Morgan Lennie James stumbled into a storm of bullets.
Yet he miraculously survived while the men either side were ripped to ribbons. Amid the deafening action the show was pausing to remind us it would continue placing in harm's way people we care about.
But it obviously wasn't going to go so far as to actually bump them off. The incident nonetheless had a powerful impact on Morgan, who promptly transmuted into an avenging killbot.

Ever since he got his bike back, nothing can ruin his good humour.
Are the Alexandrians and Jesus about to have a bloody falling out? As per his name, Jesus Tom Payne is the peace-loving type who, all things being equal, would rather not gun down strangers in cold blood. Tara and Morgan are, by contrast, very much of the Rick school: So while Jesus was able to talk his allies out of mass-executing the surrendered Saviours, the stormy look on Tara's face suggested her desire to avenge Denise hasn't been sated just yet.
Why all the quasi-Biblical imagery this year? In the season opener, we were treated to extensive shots of a monologuing Rick framed by the sun. These were followed by baffling scenes of Rick-with-beard-of-Methuselah mooching about the retro pad he will share with Michonne decades from now it will take more than the zombie apocalypse to kill off Scandi minimalism. Other shows would have called it quits at that point.
But the Walking Dead is not other shows. This week, Carol Melissa McBride and King Ezekiel Khary Payton were introduced in extreme close-up as what appeared to be a sand-storm whipped their faces.
