Lennie James' character didn't answer him right away. Debuting directly after the TWD Season 8 finale and facing the mega-hyped 20/20 sitdown with former Federal Bureau of Investigation boss James Comey on ABC, the Kim Dickens led Fear brought in 4.1 million viewers. Rick letting Negan live is done in his memory, but the weight of that decision is somewhat removed when Carl himself is no longer around to see it.
In addition to ranking as cable's top-rated and most-watched show, "The Walking Dead" led all Sunday TV programs in adults 18-49. Morgan has retreated to the Scavengers' junkyard after the victory and is preparing to hit the road. Gaping neck wounds tend to be of the lethal variety, especially on The Walking Dead, but Rick had a second surprise in store: He ordered Siddiq to save Negan, who was still clinging to life.
"Like I said, some ups and downs for John on that journey", he said.

Rick, Maggie, and Morgan may have defeated Negan, but there is still a long road ahead to the peace they want for their groups.

In addition to making a new alliance, Morgan encountered new foes, Leland and his crew. There's a battle that includes Morgan getting shot in the leg and falling through a roof with his opponent into a nest of zombies, which he blows up with an old grenade. When asked if Strand is a good person, Domingo responded that he's not sure on that front, but doesn't want the character to die because he's awesome and very good at producing soundbites. Negan instantly knew that it was Eguene's fault, but before he can do anything Gabriel jumped on him.
"I lose people, and then I lose myself", he'll reveal later in the episode.
Morgan nearly loses his life when he can't out-limp a group of zombies and loses his stick, but it's John to the rescue once again. All three tried to convince Morgan to return with them to civilization. It's Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey).
He's seen and done things that those on FTWD still don't know about and has come to crossroads that they're still looking for despite all they've been through.
