A crossover between AMC’s two zombie apocalypse sequence has been within the works for a while, and followers needed to spend weeks speculating about which character would make the leap from The Strolling Useless to Worry the Strolling Useless. The variations in timelines between the 2 reveals meant that characters that have been lengthy lifeless on The Strolling Useless may theoretically seem within the spinoff, and there was even a top contender. We not too long ago realized that Morgan would truly be the character shifting from the Strolling Useless to Fear the Walking Dead, and actor Lennie James has now revealed a few of what’s in retailer for the large transition:
The issues that the writers are doing with Morgan and the best way that they are navigating, it is not likely a spoiler alert, however the best way that Morgan transitions by the crossover is de facto, actually attention-grabbing. The springboard that goes from The Strolling Useless to Worry is an actual… He goes with some sort of trajectory. It’s a full, well-thought out journey that Morgan goes on. Plenty of it’s tied to his relationship with Rick. Plenty of it’s tied to his relationship to this group of people who he feels conflicted about caring for and wanting to guard. He will get actually tousled… That is about as a lot as I can say.
Lennie James solely recently began filming for Worry the Strolling Useless, and we are able to guess that he is been tasked with conserving many of the secrets and techniques he is realized up to now, so we most likely cannot count on way more in the best way of spoilers about Morgan’s crossing over for some time. His feedback point out that The Strolling Useless will not merely ship Morgan off on a provide run round Alexandria and abruptly pop up on Worry the Strolling Useless in Texas. Morgan will go on a journey that reveals precisely how and why the modifications in his life should occur, even when it means leaving the group that has a minimum of been on his peripheral (because of his early encounter with Rick) since virtually the very starting of the zombie apocalypse. The poor man will apparently be extra tousled than ever by the point qhe leaves for Worry the Strolling Useless.
The Strolling Useless has already began messing Morgan up in some new and devastating methods in Season eight. The bloodbath of nearly all of the Kingdom’s preventing forces clearly unsettled Morgan, and the best way he agreed to steer the snipers in help of Daryl’s loopy plan to assault the Sanctuary might level towards Morgan not having fairly as a lot of a grip on his reactions as ordinary. The massive midseason finale is ready to air this weekend, and stars have promised that we’re in for a reasonably wild trip. Throw within the battle that is evidently coming as teased by the trailer, and Morgan may have his head messed with much more by the top of the episode.
Simply as The Strolling Useless will take its time with the thought-out transition for Morgan, Lennie James has recognized for a good period of time that the transfer could be taking place. He went on in his chat with ComicBook.com to say this:
I came upon fairly early on. I came upon possibly a month into the capturing of Season eight. Possibly a month, possibly six weeks into it. [Showrunner] Scott Gimple gave me a name and requested me to return round and he pitched the likelihood and it took lots speaking.
Lennie James spoke to everyone starting from AMC to his household to even Strolling Useless star Andrew Lincoln about the opportunity of making the transfer. Plenty of consideration was clearly put into what’s sure to be a giant change for each The Strolling Useless and Worry the Strolling Useless. The zombie apocalypse will not be the identical on both entrance with/with out Morgan.
You’ll find Morgan nonetheless in motion on The Strolling Useless on this Sunday’s midseason finale of Season eight, which airs at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
