Very compelling episode (“Here’s Not Here”) that was a great and even welcome breather and a change of pace between the chaotic rollercoaster of the previous 3 episodes. Gimple did an excellent job connecting the dots with Morgan. Featuring very strong performances from both Lennie James and John Carroll Lynch. I really felt for Eastman and was sad when he (and Tabitha) bit the dust. I also found Eastman’s backstory very interesting and tragic. Always enjoy these TWD bottle episodes.

I think the Wolf (Morgan spared) is too far gone and beyond saving, but would love Morgan to prove me wrong.

Is it just me or is there a glaring pattern to Morgan's actions leading to people getting killed? first the Wolves he let go that attacked Alexandria, then in this episode allowing those guys he killed to turn. Not to mention his inability to shoot his turned wife that later killed their son...

Morgan has tons of blood on his hands due to his refusal to act.

If Easton was in Morgan’s shoes (with sparing that Wolf in Alexandria) I’m curious of how he’d handle that situation. Since this Wolf hasn’t any remorse or guilt but enjoyment for being a murdering psychopath. He chooses and plans to continue to kill the living. Hopefully we get a backstory on these Wolves soon so we have a better understanding of why they do what they do.

I'm curious as to where this moment fits in. Did this moment take place before he told that Wolf "every bit" about who he was post-apocalypse? And what exactly was inside that little bag he was carrying at the end of "JSS"?

Now THAT is a backstory episode I'd enjoy. I'd like to see who these people were before, and how they came to become such a band of depraved psychopaths. I'd like to see if there was a central figure who brought them all together, and what led them to believe that they NEED to kill everyone and everything who isn't one of them.

Love Morgan. Hope he doesn't turn into Tyrese.

I don't think they'll turn Morgan into another waste of space like Tyrese ultimately became. His no-kill rule is surely going to lead to a lot of problems (it already has) but at least he's actually helping out and fighting when he has to, instead of sitting on his ass and feeling sad all the time.

Agreed. Outside of taking care of Judith. Tyreese was pretty much useless in season 5, which was a shame b/c I heard he was a fan favorite character in the comics. Morgan on the other hand is one of the most compelling characters on the show, imho.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Morgan goes out the same way Eastman did by sacrificing himself for someone else (Rick). Since Morgan caught up with Rick he’s taken a lot of Eastman’s traits.

all life isn't precious, morgan. the governor, the terminants, and last but not least, the wolves.

their states of being are not precious at all.

Like I mentioned in another thread, I really don't think the "all life is precious" mantra is to protect those who would otherwise deserve to die. As last weeks episode showed, his mental stability and peace is on a knife's edge. Were he to kill, he would fall back into his old ways, back into his ruin. "All life is precious" is to protect himself.

I saw that elsewhere and I agree, but if he's that unstable and resorts back to being a sociopath then maybe he should be killed too.

Bingo. I picked up on that during "JSS". That's what makes Morgan's arc so gripping. If he falls back into his PTSD he'll be a danger to Alexandria, Rick & his group, and even himself.
