Lennie James Thinks Morgan Will Return To 'The Walking Dead'

Rather than making the spin-off feel unnecessarily redundant, Morgan's introduction to Fear the Walking Dead has ushered in a new era for the spin-off-and possibly its best season yet.

Though it was clear to everyone that Dwight didn't voluntarily lead the survivors into Negan's trap, not all of them were ready to fully forgive him for past transgressions.

Rick and Negan fight but Rick soon makes his plea that it doesn't have to be this way, reminding Negan of how Carl's letters insisted they find a better way to live.

After cruelly slashing the throat of a Savior who was trying to surrender, Morgan took some advice from Jesus and started merely knocking out his foes instead of killing them. Lennie James, who has one of the harder things to sell, also continues to do a great job of showing Morgan's mental breakdown via physical tics; in the opening of the episode, as Morgan tries to talk to Rick, Morgan's confusing dialogue is only muddied all the more by the sheer amount of struggle Morgan has with communication; it's painfully uncomfortable to watch Morgan's pained attempt at explaining himself. When Rick and Team Family arrived just where he wanted them, Negan started his creepy whistle. Not to mention, they develop much further than their fellow series' counterparts. Through his escape, it appeared as if Eugene had thrown in with Negan once and for all, but what seemed to be confirmation of Eugene's turn to the dark side was, in fact, just a ruse. No one's particularly sure just how much time has passed between the death of Glenn and the demise of the Savior threat. We did not tell him.

He's on Fear the Walking Dead (which premiered its fourth season on Sunday) now, but is everyone's favourite stickman actually gone for good in the main TWD-verse? She goes on to ask the two about their story as if it was her journalistic duty to log the people surviving the apocalypse. "They're coming for us, unless we stand together", he said.

Negan has been the show's biggest villain since his introduction in the Season 6 finale (and his Saviours before him), and while the cartoonish nature of the character hasn't always worked (despite Morgan's commitment to the part), he's been so full-on as a bad guy, right down to his last moments, that a death was more than earned.

Viewers now know that scenario is a possibility, although the finale shrewdly planted the seeds for future discord (this is a drama, after all), emanating from those who had been Rick's closing allies. You see what the plan is, but I'm also a bit hesitant about glossing over 2 years worth of story.

Judging by the preview image above, we could be looking at the end of Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) tenure on The Walking Dead. But waging the war - with all the tactical machinations of what was billed as "All Out War", strewn across the 16 episodes of Season 8 - at times felt as if the plot was ambling along like a zombie, or more accurately, running in place. Do you think Negan will stay in jail for long? We knew that was going to be the final masterstroke. This includes all past episodes of The Walking Dead as well.

Though Rick won't like this, fans of the show can at least rest happy knowing this new development likely means Lauren Cohan will be back for Season 9, with a pretty meaty storyline to boot.
