S06.E01: The End is the Beginning

Recommended Posts


Virginia is still horribly annoying but I liked Morgan getting resurrected as Axe Morgan.

Hope lady & baby take care of the dog.

Axe Morgan has to be more interesting than stick fighting we can save everybody Morgan. He has to be. Even if I'm still a little disappointed he apparently didn't turn out to be some kind of human walker hybrid.

Somebody took a wrong turn?

I guess this will be some version of Morgan that's a bit like what he was in his "clear" phase back on TWD, before he ran into the cheese maker and learned that all life is precious.   

I guess there's someone out there who helped Morgan after he was shot, that's why he was in the tower waiting for that person to show up?  I couldn't really follow that.  And I guess the bounty hunter needed to get to El Paso, or was it Waco? But why? And what happened to the key that he found on the man he killed in the beginning?  Does Morgan have that now?  The guy at the end says they need the key.  I assume it's that key.  

Questions I wonder about.  Will I watch the episode again to try and figure this out? Another question!

Ok, that happened.  Do we know the guys with the spray paint at the submarine?  One of them looked familiar but it's been a long time since last season. 

I'm not sure I care anymore.

It could just have been a cool apocalyptic backdrop for a stand alone mystery scene, there might not be any more significance to it than that. they were waiting for someone to turn up with a key, so perhaps the guy who get's beheaded at the strt was on his way to meet them with the key that Morgan now has.

From last season i recall that all of the pioneers had little keys with them, though they seemed to be symbolic keys, that one looks like an actual key that fits a lock.

I originally assumed the submarine was a holdover from the lake that the zombie bait medic was talking about used to be there before all the water, I guess, leaked away somewhere. It probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense for there to have been a submarine in a manmade lake somewhere in Texas, but when has that ever stopped this franchise?

I vaguely remember the Annie Oakley crew having keys last season too but no idea of possible significance with that.

I really wish there was a map that they would show and help us all orientate!!! Like a game of thrones type entry - where on earth is everyone right now? How far apart? And where on earth would a submarine beach even remotely nearby? gulf coast I assume - is that where they are? Are they all in texas?

I'm not sure, but it definitely had a 'dropped in the middle of nowhere via 'Close Encounters Of The Third Kind alien ship' vibe to it

How the hell was the dog tracking Morgan?   It's not like Bounty Guy had a shirt or something for him to sniff.   Did he just show the dog that awful picture and tell him "Seek!" ?    Also awful quiet for a hound, but I'll give them that in the zombie apocalypse that you'd have to train dogs to be pretty silent.  

Was that horse just standing in the dry lake bed fully tacked up?   I know when they went through that gate (which didn't look like it would keep much out) there was a quick shot of a horse standing there.  I got the impression it was tacked up, but didn't go back and freeze frame it.   I figured that's where Morgan got his horse that he had at the end.    Maybe mystery horse just wandered in the lake bed like the zombie that they killed later. 

Also WTF on Morgan's water tower shelter.   Might be nice for short term, but everything in it is going to get soaking wet whenever there's any rain.     Ditto on the town under the lake.   No fronts on the last one they showed - that'll be nice when you have a crying baby (probably would need to train kids NOT to make noise) or if you're sleeping and a rando zombie or two falls down the bank & comes stumbling around. 

Nice "beard" in only 6 weeks, Morgan!  

Overall I enjoyed the episode (YAY on no more grey filter or at least none in this episode) but there are some things that bugged.

I did not know it was on,  so I'm late. 

Morgan is half way dead and has the hability to be invisible for the walkers, but he will fight even if he cannot stand still?  He won't get health care?  Boy I am tired of this shit.

I just hope he doesn't go too far in the other direction.

We are talking about FTWD...  He will get too far.

I think the dog sniffing the blanket Morgan was wrapped in while in the store. Although the guy who helped Morgan told the tracker guy that no one was in the store with him, the tracker guy was still suspicion of the blanket.

Morgan could've done better by listening to the message of the Kenny Rogers song "Coward of the County," try to live a peaceful life, but, as the lyrics say, "Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man."
