We have now already shared our emotions on the season 4 premiere of Worry the Strolling Useless (it’s excellent), so let’s flip to 1 factor we couldn’t talk about earlier than the premiere: The plot particulars.
Why Did Morgan go away The Strolling Useless?
As we anticipated primarily based on the midseason premiere of The Strolling Useless, Morgan discovered that he might not dwell round different folks. Whereas Morgan nonetheless feels invincible, he fears he’s a hazard to everybody else round him and opts, initially, to maneuver to Jadis’ previous stomping grounds on the Junkyard. Nonetheless affected by PTSD over the demise of his spouse and son, Morgan couldn’t be satisfied by Jesus, Carol, or Rick to return to The Kingdom, The Hilltop, or Alexandria. “I lose folks, after which I lose myself,” Morgan tells Althea.
In the end, slightly than stick round and permit his mates to repeatedly attempt to coax him again residence, Morgan decides to depart Virginia. Morgan, nonetheless, is clearly nonetheless feeling the results of PTSD, as evidenced by the truth that he “must know” what the walkers seem like earlier than he kills them, as if he’s nonetheless looking for somebody, or for closure. Morgan can be again to his previous, “I don’t kill” methods.
How Did Morgan Get to Texas?
He ran. He walked. And he ran some extra. There isn’t a grand thriller right here. Morgan walked away from Alexandria, and he stored strolling till he arrived in Texas. That’s about 1,400 miles, for the report. Which may sound like a protracted strategy to stroll, and it’s, but when Morgan walked three miles an hour, eight hours a day, he’d attain Texas in rather less than two months.
Are the timelines between the 2 reveals synced now?
Sure, for the second. Worry the Strolling Useless jumped forward two or three years to line up with The Strolling Useless, however that doesn’t imply that The Strolling Useless received’t bounce forward in time subsequent season — because it does within the comics — and fall out of sync once more. It additionally doesn’t imply that Worry the Strolling Useless will stay on this timeline. We nonetheless have no idea how the Worry characters survived the dam breaking within the third season finale, or how they discovered their strategy to Texas, so that can nearly definitely be explored in future episodes in flashbacks.
The place precisely is Worry set now?
The trailers for the brand new season present that the characters take up camp in Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium, which is in Spherical Rock, Texas. That’s exterior of Austin and never Houston, as teased on the finish of final season of Worry the Strolling Useless. In reality, the minor league group that occupies of that baseball discipline throughout the season is the Spherical Rock Armadillos, which redesigned its uniforms to pay homage to The Strolling Useless and, particularly, Negan’s barbed-wire bat.
What Is Althea’s Story?
Althea, like Morgan, stays cagey about her backstory, so we don’t know a lot about her but, aside from the truth that she “collects tales.” Who she collects tales for stays a thriller, however I wish to suppose her character is a nod to World Struggle Z, Max Brooks’ oral historical past of the zombie warfare. That’s to say, she is gathering tales for future generations, ought to they handle to outlive the zombie apocalypse. However in the end, we don’t know why she is gathering them, nor do we all know how she got here into possession of the SWAT van with the machine weapons, a urgent query of Morgan’s.
What’s John Dorie’s Story?
Garret Dillahunt’s character is probably the most intriguing new addition to emerge from the opening episode. We solely know that he’s been fully alone since “one thing unhealthy” occurred that separated him from Laura, a lady he met and grew near (who is unquestionably not the Savior, Laura, from The Strolling Useless). He’s been alone for at the least a yr, looking for her, and all he has to go on is an identical pistol and a shared fondness for onerous sweet. The seek for Laura can be one of many main storylines this season, though we are able to say for sure that she is not one other new character who has not but been launched to collection performed by Jenna Elfman. Elfman’s character’s identify is Naomi. It’s price noting, too, that John has discovered a soulmate in Morgan, as John doesn’t kill until he has to, both.
What’s the take care of the Clark household?
We are able to surmise from the previous few seconds of the episode that Strand, Alicia, and Nick survived the dam breaking. We are able to additionally assume, as a result of Daniel will not be current, that he didn’t survive the third-season finale. We are able to additional assume that sooner or later, Nick discovered Luciana. Past that, we are able to’t even hazard a guess primarily based on what’s within the episode, except for the truth that they use Alicia to pretend an harm in an effort to ambush autos driving into their space. Neither the trailers nor this episode has given us a lot to go on, as solely one of many new characters (Morgan) seems with an previous character (Nick) in any of the trailers or photographs of the brand new season, to this point.
The place is Madison?
That’s one other unknown. We have now seen her in trailers, however these pictures could also be from flashbacks. Madison could also be useless, she could also be hanging again on the baseball discipline, or she could have gotten separated from her group. Her whereabouts are supposed to be left a thriller (however she is unquestionably not Alpha).
