Storyline

After losing his family, Morgan becomes an uncontrolled killer of walkers and humans. He stumbles upon a goat outside a house and tries to kill the owner. However the man subdues him and puts him in a cell in his living room. The man, Eastman, is a former forensic psychologist and tells that all life is precious; then he explains how the principles of Aikido have changed his life. Gradually Morgan calms down and Eastman teaches Aikido to him and tells the story of his life. When Morgan leaves the place, he is a man with a different philosophy of life. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

As revealed by Lennie James on "Talking Dead," this episode was shot out of order - episodes 5, 6, 7 and even 8, the mid-season finale, were shot before this. The first person to see Scott M. Gimple's script was Greg Nicotero, after which the actors were not allowed to see it until filming, creating speculation among the cast about what episode 4 would be like. See more »

Goofs

When Eastman strikes Morgan with his bo staff after first releasing Morgan from the cell, the staff bends backward as a rubber stunt prop would. See more »

So much meat in this episode...figuratively
3 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The great thing about The Walking Dead is the balance of truly hardcore violence and deep, personal stories which make us care about characters. I completely contrast this with this past summer's Fear The Walking Dead, which did nothing to endear us with any of the cast. In a zombie, yes I said the z word, apocalypse drama, if the characters at least don't have some depth then there's no point in staying with the show. Morgan has always been something of a mystery, and boy was it amazing to finally have so many questions answered.

It was heartbreaking when we learned about his son, as I have a nephew around the same age so that cut deep. But then Morgan came back recently and he'd picked up Jackie Chan moves, while at the same time no longer obsessed with his motivation to "clear." John Carroll Lynch, who plays Eastman, is one of the most memorable characters of this show's entire run. I was thinking during the ep that I'd really like to see a miniseries about him pre-apocalypse...somewhat the same as Better Call Saul.

The tone is set just right in this episode. Our hearts are vulnerable as we open up to Tabitha the goat and Eastman, and the writers/director extremely wisely don't force us to undergo another Noah scene. That would have angered me, honestly, and that's more proof that this is a quality show that isn't all shock value.

So many things going on, and they're all internal. However, I have noticed that following episodes like this that are character builders, the next few eps are very bloody. Like a gulp before the plunge. So everyone should be prepared. That being said, Morgan is absolutely one of my favorite characters now.

10/10
