Morgan’s been the source of positivity for the survivors on Fear The Walking Dead but he’s repressed some haunting memories. Now, however, it looks like Morgan is facing them head-on.

Since he was introduced on The Walking Dead, Morgan Jones (Lennie James) has been repressing the memories of his undead wife and son. He’s kept it locked away in the recesses of his mind but Morgan is finally allowing himself to grieve over the haunting memories. The surprising bit is it took Fear The Walking Dead’s Logan (Matt Frewer) pushing his buttons to get Morgan there.

Warning! Spoilers for the latest episodes of Fear The Walking Dead follow.

In “You’re Still Here”, Logan attempts to antagonize his frenemy by mentioning Morgan’s dead wife and son. The moment he does, Morgan flies into a rage. He comes close to stabbing Logan in the neck but Althea (Maggie Grace) pulls him back at the last second. They leave without further incident but the ordeal is far from over.

On the way back to refuel at the truck-stop, Althea pries at Morgan for information about his family. She doesn’t do so as part of her investigation, Althea simply tries to help Morgan cope with the trauma he’s been repressing all this time. Morgan initially hesitates to say anything but he eventually comes around, opening up to Al.

Being that it’s the first time Morgan has fully accepted his wife and son’s deaths, this will allow him to grieve over them properly. He’s hidden that grief behind mental barriers but now he’ll feel everything. The concern now is how overwhelming it could be for him.

Since he’s kept all this pain tucked away and unaddressed for so long, Morgan may be bombarded by different emotions all at once. Between sadness, anger, pain, and everything in between, Morgan could wind up more confused than anything. This comes at the worst possible time as they need to be as level-headed as possible to take on Logan.

The silver lining is that Morgan facing his trauma could open the door for him to move on. He and Grace (Karen David) have been flirting it up and that may evolve into something greater if Morgan can deal with the past first. The question, however, remains: Can he?
