As a general rule, you should expect the unexpected when you watch the AMC sister shows "Fear the Walking Dead" and "The Walking Dead." That will be especially true as we continue to follow the story of Morgan Jones (Lennie James) in "Fear" Season 4.
There are spoilers ahead if you haven't yet watched the most recent episode of "Fear the Walking Dead." Read on only if you're caught up.
James left "The Walking Dead" for its spinoff after spending six seasons of playing his character, but he now has fans wondering if he's on his way back. As Entertainment Weekly pointed out, Morgan shared during the most recent episode that he wants to go back to Virginia. If he'll make it and how long it would take, though, are another story.
EW interviewed "Fear the Walking Dead" showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, and they made it clear that they're not done with Morgan just yet. Goldberg noted that the character has "emotional demons" and they plan to deal with them during the second half of Season 4. Morgan has a journey ahead of him, and based on the comments, it sounds both physical and psychological.
The co-showrunner also pointed out that there's a vast difference between announcing plans to do something and actually doing it.
"He may say that he’s going back to Alexandria, but the journey to get there is going to be filled with a lot of unexpected turns, Goldberg said to EW of Morgan's future.
Whatever they have planned for him, James has speculated in the past that he could eventually find his way home. He told HollywoodLife in April that he agreed with his "TWD" co-star Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) in doubting that "the story between, about the relationship between Rick and Morgan, is over."
And there you have it: Anything is possible. Prepare yourself as best you can.
