'The Walking Dead': A Season 1 Character Makes a Shocking Return

Let's get the discussion about season 8 episode 2 of The Walking Dead titled "The Damned" started by talking about the positive things that happened!

Despite Rick's recognition of Morales as an old friend, the character informed the former sheriff he had already phoned for the Saviors.

Rick looked at a photo on the wall, and made the realization that he knew its subjects: the Morales family.

His surprising comeback as the long forgotten character Morales came seven years after his last appearance in season one as one of the survivors of the outbreak in Atlanta.

When Rick made the decision to go to Atlanta's CDC in search of a cure, the Moraleses chose to take their chances and head towards Birmingham, where they had relatives.

In the episode last night, entitled "The Damned", the episode followed in the wake of the premiere, with the Alexandrians, Kingdommers and Hilltoppers against the Saviours.

"That was a long time ago", Morales said as he held up a radio.

Clearly, plans changed, as Morales (first name unknown) is now part of Negan's group. While the group thought Morales was making a bad decision, Rick still gave him a gun, a box of ammo and a walkie-talkie as they said their goodbyes.

How Morales ended up as a member of the Saviors is a mystery for now but according to Pareja on an After the Dead interview, he has fleshed out Morales' history with showrunner Scott Gimple.

Morales also left originally with his wife and two children who appear noticeably absent - could they have been killed while fighting for Negan against Rick's forces?
