Fan-favorite character reappears in 'Walking Dead' post-credit cameo

Posted on

Walking Dead Post Credits

The Walking Dead‘s midseason finale included the requisite zombies, death, and tension that fans have come to expect. But the episode also included a welcome surprise: the return of Morgan Jones.

Lennie James’ Morgan appeared briefly in the season-five premiere following that episode’s credits after having been absent for several seasons. To continue that trend while also putting many of Marvel’s post-credits scenes to shame, Morgan popped up again at the end of “Coda.”

In the clip, Morgan, who doesn’t utter a word, looks to now be hot on the trail of Rick and his crew. Morgan finds a map and Abraham’s note to Rick at the church the survivors had already visited, giving viewers a strong suggestion as to where Morgan will travel to next.

James has shown up on the show only a handful of times throughout the show’s run, though since his memorable story in the pilot, he has remained a favorite for fans wondering what exactly he’s been up to over the years. Now that Morgan knows he’s following in the footsteps of Rick, hopefully a reunion is on the way.

AMC also released a preview of what’s to come when The Walking Dead returns in 2015.
