The Walking Dead puts Morgan to good use, and kills two other folks. Guess who!

We can all agree that there are certain aspects of AMC’s The Walking Dead that seem a little, shall we say, far-fetched. The most improbable of these scenarios will be reviewed here each week.

“Too Long, Didn’t Watch” Episode Recap

At a supply drop, Richard sabotaged the cantaloupes to get himself killed by the Saviors. Yes, you read that correctly. Unfortunately, Benjamin was killed instead, so you can imagine how silly Richard feels right now. Good news, though: Morgan kills Richard to “prove to the Saviors” that everything is hunky-dory! See, Rich, you served a purpose after all! Morgan’s not done, though. He goes to Carol’s house and tells her all about Glenn, Abraham, and the Saviors taking over Alexandria. Carol gives Morgan her house, and goes to the Kingdom and is ready to join the fight. Hell yeah! Next week: everyone still wants Negan dead, again, some more.

Mildly Improbable

Apocalypse! Let’s make large-scale art installations out of shopping carts!

I get it, the Saviors are evil. But they killed a teenager over LITERALLY ONE CANTALOUPE. I mean, for fuck’s sake.

Pretty Improbable

I love how Carol is becoming legit famous for her ass-kicking abilities. I mean, she’s basically Beatrix Kiddo at this point, right?

It is strange that none of the Kingdom folks even tried to stop Morgan from killing Richard. They had no idea of any of Richard’s plans, so they had no reason to believe anyone sanctioned this in any way. But they just stood there like “Morgan, whatchu doin’!”

Extremely Improbable

I love the headscarf-wearing Magical Black Woman who tells King Ezekiel “we got weevils. We will burn the garden, and regrow everything. Also, Shiva growled and I just pissed myself.” Give this bitch a spin-off!

Morgan accidentally calls dead Benjamin “Duane.” Welcome back, Full-On Crazy Morgan! We missed you!

YEAH, RIGHT

Someone dug their own grave and marked it “bury me here.” How do they know who it was, though? Are they going to find a walker stumbling around with a nametag that says “It’s ‘Me!’”? Because I would LOL. Fortunately, Richard makes a convenient (and probably originally-intended, based on evidence) occupant.
