Oops. I forgot Fear The Walking Dead is back, too.  Sorry, Morgan.  :blush:

"Mortally wounded, Morgan must decide whether to help a desperate stranger while a mysterious bounty hunter tries to finish what Ginny couldn't."

Something tells me that IMDB doesn't know what "mortally wounded" means.  :D

Wholly cow Lenny looks like he aged 10-15 years since we saw him last year.  I hope it was only makeup. lol

I think you just did the same as G-Man.  The stranger was mortally wounded and Morgan had to help him. lol  Although, he sure did not want to.

I enjoyed this episode.  It really was sad but also heart warming. :)

^^^ Except, if someone is "mortally wounded," all one can do is offer comfort.  And if Morgan was being hunted, offering comfort to a dying stranger wouldn't factor high on the survival scale, unless it was to keep the other silent to allow the hunter to bypass him.

I assumed that the "mortally wounded" referred to Morgan because he was left for dead at the end of last season.

Okay, that was an interesting episode, which I was enjoying up until the end.  It was sort of like the prologue to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, but with a dark twist.  Morgan has survived his near-death experience (so near that the Zombies were accepting him as one of their own), but he has undergone yet another radical change of character. He has abandoned his stick and adopted the battleaxe and admittedly cool hat of the bounty hunter and is about to embark, apparently, on a crusade to take out Virginia and save his friends. I don't like this. I liked the old Morgan. Well, the most recent old Morgan.

This episode was notable for several cool sets and settings.  I loved the hideout in the water tower and I'm sorry it only lasted a few minutes.  Also, the panorama of the dam, with it's annoying Zombie horde was very nice.  But I especially liked the idea of the town that was drowned by the artificial lake being revealed when the dam broke. Very clever that this makes it invisible to Virginia because the lake would still be on any old maps.

None of the other main characters appeared in this episode, apparently because the first half of the season will take an anthology format, focusing on a single character per episode. So it might be a while before we see Morgan again.  Maybe then we'll learn who was heroic enough to save him, yet incompetent enough to leave him to die with a half-assed patch-up job.

I think the change in Morgan makes a lot of sense.

Near death experience, and this moment to save a new life.

Pretty clear it's time for a new mission to save the future and put an end to the Evil Ones (Virginia)

I am looking forward to Morgan taking the lead on kicking some ass and taking names  :insanosmile:

It makes sense-- I just don't like it.  I want my "I am Caine, I will help you" Morgan.
