The Walking Dead midseason finale packed a lot of punch, but aside from the shocking death we saw, there as a massive cliffhanger that sets up a character’s return.
After the shocking death in the midseason finale of The Walking Dead, we got a sort of post-credits scene with Morgan arriving at the church Rick and the gang were staying at prior to setting out for the hospital.

It’s been a while since we’ve sen Morgan do anything except drift in and out of scenes as a teaser, but he seems to be coming back in a big way. At the end of the midseason finale, we are given a shot of Mogan praying, laughing about the idea of praying and then finding a map that will more than likely lead him to Rick.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gimple states that the second half of Season 5 could reunite Rick and Morgan, as divine intervention may have played a role in Morgan finding the map.
"He has that map and it means something. He has this massive breadcrumb. Now, Rick and his group aren’t necessarily on their way to D.C. but it’s something. Morgan knows Rick Grimes could be alive and could be somewhere nearby and perhaps on that path. It’s something. Morgan sat there and he prayed [in the church] and then he laughed at the idea of praying and then he found that map. So perhaps it’s divine intervention."
The whole divine intervention angle is likely just a joke, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that Morgan is on the path to crossing Rick and the group. The script has no doubt flipped since the last time the duo met and it appears that they are in reversed roles.
How this plays into the grander scheme of things is unclear, as Morgan is as capable of being an ally as he is another menace for the group to deal with. We will have to wait and see though, as The Walking Dead is on a winter hiatus before returning with new episodes the Sunday after Super Bowl XLIX.
