With the exception of Maggie's justifiable heel turn I thought the episode sucked. The follow up episode with the Fear the Walking Dead was crappy but it still was the best Fear the Walking Dead episode ever because the main cast was barely in it.
It just went on too long but having read the comic book we are lucky it didn't last another full year. The FTWD episode was mind numbing bad. It is hard to believe the show runners read the script and thought it was the way to revive interest! The idea of Morgan and the new characters was fine but look at what they were given for material. The opening with Morgan and his decision to leave was well handled. After his journey reaches the cowboy it plunges into ludicrous territory. Morgan gets captured, John the cowboy shows up to rescue him and is then also captured. Then Althea shows up to save them both and they drive down the road a while and decide to stop for the guys to give video interviews as repayment for the rescue. So of course are captured by the gang they just escaped in the last scene. The bad guys apparently not taking a documentary pause. Pattern firmly established it should be no surprise they escape only to be trapped by some of last years surviving cast in the most obvious trick imaginable. Morgan and company did not even bother to leave one person in the giant mobile,highly armed truck as cover. Maybe the worst season opener of both shows combined and that includes TWD season four.
