As many viewers would probably agree, Morgan (Lennie James) and his non-violent behavior on The Walking Dead has been more than a little frustrating, especially when he seemingly sucked Carol (Melissa McBride) into his no-killing nonsense.

After Sunday’s tense episode “Bury Me Here,” however, it looks like the two finally have come to their senses – and fans took to Twitter cheer about it.

Fans Call Out Richard for His “Dick” Cantaloupe Move

Still trying hard to find a way to convince King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) to enter into the fight against the Saviors, Richard (Karl Makinen) comes up with another plan (since the “Carol as bait” one didn’t work) to set things off.

First, he makes the Kingdom crew late to the delivery (by blocking the road) and then shorts them on cantaloupes. The Saviors naturally have to teach a lesson, as they’ve continually warned. Richard thinks he’ll be the one punished, but instead, Morgan’s young Padawan, Benjamin (Logan Miller), is shot in the leg by a “rat-faced” Savior, and then dies after bleeding out. No one was happy about that.

Is Morgan’s Reaction Justified?

When Morgan goes a little crazy over Benjamin’s death and discovers it was all Richard’s doing, viewers gave their impressions on how Morgan would react.

Not even Richard’s heartfelt confession and explanation of why he did it could sway Morgan. In front of the Saviors, Ezekiel and the rest, he kills Richard with his bare hands. Oh, snap, say fans.

There were some, however, who didn’t like the fact it took the death of this one kid to finally get Morgan back into the killing game, especially after all the horrible things that happened in Alexandria.

Bringing Carol into the Fight

After killing Richard, a bloody Morgan shows up at Carol’s door.

He tells her what really went down in Alexandria, how Negan killed Glenn and Abraham and how Alexandria must serve the Saviors. Seeing the traumatized Morgan, Carol realizes she can no longer sit back and do nothing.

By the way, fans are still completely shaken by even mentioning Glenn and Abraham again. We are right there with you.

Everyone Is Damn Glad Carol Is Back, That’s For Sure

She knows what has to be done now and returns to the Kingdom. She is going to whip those folks into shape with Ezekiel’s help, while Morgan sharpens his stick at Carol’s house.

With only three episodes left in The Walking Dead, it’s all finally coming together ― except Sasha and Rosita’s stupid plan needs to be squashed.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC
