Morgan Faces Saviors And Walkers In The Walking Dead Midseason Premiere Clip


It’s been a long couple of months for The Walking Dead fans, as they’ve been patiently awaiting the return of the hit AMC zombie drama. After all, the midseason finale ended on a nail-biting cliffhanger when Carl Grimes was revealed to have been bitten by a walker.

Though we still haven’t seen any footage that sheds light on his imminent demise, one new clip from the upcoming midseason premiere – titled “Honor” – has arrived online today and features a tense scene, as Morgan Jones (Lennie James) stakes out some Saviors. Things then get even more problematic as he finds himself cornered by zombies, yet the old survivor, who’s faced much worse than this, is able to use his smarts to turn the situation to his advantage.

Fans will know that Morgan’s days on The Walking Dead are numbered, but not because he’s set to die. Instead, he’s the first character to cross over to Fear the Walking Dead. After season 8 is up, Lennie James will switch over to season 4 of the spinoff show. We don’t yet know how he’ll transition to the sister series, but James has teased that it’ll play with the audience’s expectations.

The actor has also told us to expect a “very, very sad” exit for the character, particularly in terms of saying goodbye to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). The pair haven’t always got along, but they have been through a lot together, as Morgan was one of the first people the former sheriff encountered in the post-apocalyptic world.

That said, James has hinted that this season won’t be the last time Rick and Morgan will meet, suggesting he’ll come back to the parent show at some point in the future. Fingers crossed, eh?

The Walking Dead “Honor” airs on AMC on Sunday, February 25th.
