By the time season 8 of The Walking Dead rolled around, many fans had forgotten all about Morales. Even though he was part of the program’s initial season, absence doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder.

However, that doesn’t mean that Morales was completely forgotten. Viewers with good memories recognized the husband and father quite quickly despite leaving before the group went to the CDC and heading to Birmingham.

Morales showed up at the end of episode 802 when he pointed his gun at Rick Grimes as a member of Negan’s army. Surprisingly showing zero remorse for his old friend, Morales threatens to turn Rick over to the leader of The Saviors.

That wouldn’t happen though. Daryl found Rick being held at gunpoint and killed Morales without hesitation by shooting him in the head with an arrow from his crossbow.
