This would be an impossibly big list, only ruling out paths that are clearly far too long for you to traverse at your maximum possible pace on the path like me chasing a career as an Olympic figure skater. To complete our Reality Box audit with that caveat, we need to evaluate:. For those paths, evaluate your starting point, based on your current skills, resources, and connections relevant to that field.
Think about end points and where on each line your star should be placed. Make an initial estimate for what your pace of improvement might be on these various game boards, based on your current pace-related strengths and how much you think you can improve at each of them in other words, how much your speed might be able to accelerate.
You take your game board and make it a line, you plot starting points and success stars that together generate the various distances in front of you, and for each, you multiply your pace by your level of persistence. A from-first-principles Reality Box audit may bring some overly optimistic people down to Earth, but I suspect that for most, an audit will leave them feeling like they have a lot more options than they realized, empowering them to set their sights on a bolder direction.
A good Reality Box reflection warrants yet another Want Box reflection. Reframing a bunch of career paths in your mind will affect your level of yearning for some of them. One career may seem less appealing after reminding yourself that it will entail thousands of hours of networking or multiple decades of pre-success struggle. Another may seem less daunting after changing your mind about how much luck is actually involved. This brings us to the end of our long, two-part deep dive.
After a fairly exhausting box-auditing process, we can return to our Venn 10 diagram. Assuming some things have changed, you have a new Option Pool to look at—a new list of options on the table that seem both desirable to your high-priority rankings and possible to achieve. If there had been a clear arrow on your map before your audit, check out your new Option Pool. Remember, going from a false arrow to a question mark is always major progress in life. And actually, a new question mark implies having made the key cliff jump on two roller coasters: getting to know yourself and getting to know the world.
Major step in the right direction. Cross out the arrow and join the question mark crowd. Now the question mark crowd has a tough choice. You gotta pick one of the arrows in the Option Pool. Careers used to be kind of like a year tunnel. You picked your tunnel, and once you were in, that was that. You worked in that profession for 40 years or so before the tunnel spit you out on the other side into your retirement. The truth is, careers have probably never really functioned like year-tunnels, they just seemed that way.
At best, traditional careers of the past played out kind of like tunnels. But crusty old conventional wisdom has a lot of us still viewing things that way, which makes the already hard job of making big career path choices much harder. It enhances the delusion that what we do for work is a synonym for who we are, making a question mark on your map seem like an existential disaster.
When you think of your career as a tunnel, the stakes to make the right choice seem so high that it explodes the feeling of tyranny of choice. For perfectionist types especially, this can be utterly paralyzing. When you think of your career as a tunnel, you lose the courage to make a career switch, even when your soul is begging for it. It makes switching careers feel incredibly risky and embarrassing, and it suggests that someone who does so is a failure.
But conventional wisdom still tells many of us that careers are tunnels.
And of course, that landscape—and those game boards—will have themselves evolved. Popular psychologist Dan Gilbert also eloquently describes just how bad we are at predicting what will make us happy in the future. Pretending you can figure out what dot 2 or 4 or 8 should be now is laughable.
Future dots are the worry of a future, wiser you living in a future world. Dot 1 is your chance to test it out. Hypothesis testing is intuitive in the dating world. You have to get some experience dating this person to learn what you need to learn to make that decision. We can all agree that this hypothetical friend is pretty nuts and is lacking a fundamental understanding of how you find a happy relationship. Reframing your next major career decision as a far lower-stakes choice makes the number of options exciting, not stressful.
And now you have to actually make the move. The Yearning Octopus can help. As we discussed earlier, your behavior at any given point simply displays the configuration of your octopus. Your conscious mind may have tried to assign lower shelf ratings to the parts of your octopus that lean towards inertia, but your yearnings have rebelled. To fix this problem, think like a kindergarten teacher. In your class, a faction of the 5-year-olds is rebelling against your wishes. What do you do? Go talk to the 5-year-olds that are causing the trouble. Describe to them the insights you gained from your Reality Box reflection.
Remind them about how connecting the dots works and about the chillness of dot 1. Until you do, your life will be run by a bunch of primitive, short-sighted 5-year-olds, and your whole shit will suck. Trust me, I know. Jumping to a new dot is a liberating feeling, usually side by side with some substantial internal havoc. The whining octopus is a reminder of why pure, elated happiness is never a reasonable goal. The times you feel pure happiness are temporary, drug-induced delusions—like the honeymoon phase of a new relationship or new job or the high following a long-awaited success.
Chasing happiness is an amateur move. Feeling contentment in those times when your choices and your circumstances have combined to pull it off, and knowing you have all that you could ever ask for, is for the wise.
For a while, you can just live. As far as you know, you might be Michael Jordan holding his first basketball, so start playing. At some point, your good feelings about the macro picture may sour. This is the mission-enhancing type of dot jump. A mission-changing dot jump may be in order, but depending on which parts of you are asking for it, it may also be the wrong move.
The people on the left side of this spectrum are jump-shy. The cement-footed.

- FAITH: The First Principle;
Their pitfall is staying way too long in the wrong things. This is why these internal frameworks are important. They give you the ability to analyze the source of your impulses. In our example, the question is whether your impulse to jump missions is the result of genuine evolution or quick-quitter bias.
So think about your diagram. Is your restlessness just the expected incessant whining of an octopus still correctly configured? Or have you learned new information about yourself or the world during the trudge that has corrected some off-base initial assumptions? Or maybe something is fundamentally evolving—some blue or yellow loop activity:.
If you feel that things have genuinely changed, you may decide to zoom out even further and think about the big red loop, which deals with fundamentally changing your mission:. The best place to start is by looking at your own past. Studying your own past decisions, with the flashlight of hindsight and accumulated wisdom, is like an athlete studying game tape. Looking at my own past, I can see a lot of dot jumps or, while I was still in school, career plan adjustments , and some of them look pretty unwise in retrospect. Over the course of your life, your good and bad decisions will collaborate to forge your unique life path.
But we should probably embrace the fear of end-of-life regret. I think end-of-life regrets may simply be your authentic self thinking about the parts of your life you never got to live—the parts of you that someone else kicked down into your subconscious. My own psyche seems to back this up—looking back on my path so far, the mistakes that bother me most are the ones that happened because someone else took the wheel of my head and overruled the quiet, insecure voice of my authentic self—the mistakes that I knew at the time, deep down, were wrong. Other voices will never stop fiercely trying to live your life for you—you owe it to that little insecure character in the very center of your consciousness to get this right.

A Venn diagram is the most obvious possible kind of diagram, and somehow, John Venn convinced everyone he invented it. I now first hit upon the diagrammatical device of representing propositions by inclusive and exclusive circles. Of course the device was not new then, but it was so obviously representative of the way in which any one, who approached the subject from the mathematical side, would attempt to visualize propositions, that it was forced upon me almost at once. This spectrum, of course, is also highly relevant in relationships.

Gavin is injured and escapes the theater with Morgan missing shots at him. Ezekiel suggests they leave. Morgan tells him all the Saviors are dead and he goes after Gavin. Morgan's pursuit of Gavin continues. Gavin is terrified. The spear drags through dirt and leaves a trail. Gavin sees Morgan's shadow approaching. It walks away. He is momentarily relieved before being yanked from behind. Morgan stands before him.
Morgan beats Gavin to the ground.
Gavin calls him a "sick man. Gavin insists he didn't have many options. Morgan hauls Gavin up to his feet. Carol and Ezekiel catch up to Morgan, and Ezekiel insists Morgan that he spares Gavin and calls ending him "the coward's way. She reminds him of when he told her "we can be better than them. Morgan questions why they cannot simply tell Henry who killed Benjamin.
Carol argues that Henry, as a young child, is still vulnerable. While Morgan believes he is able to handle himself, Carol voices her concerns for both Henry and himself. She relieves him of his duties and assumes her post. Morgan, Carol and Henry discuss the circumstances of Carl's death, having found out he died helping a stranger.
He runs to his truck and honks the horn, alerting the other lookouts. When the Saviors arrive, Hilltoppers block the convoy with a bus and fire at the Saviors. The battle begins in earnest. While fighting, Morgan kills a Savior named Keno and hallucinates Gavin again. Morgan manage to survive the attack as the remaining Saviors flee. He also survives the subsequent outbreak that killed several more people. Morgan walks out of the Hilltop to search for Henry. Carol urges him to stay. Thought it would be different. Morgan and Carol journey through the woods.
They come across a turnip which means they were on this side of the road. Morgan thinks he sees Henry and runs off after him. Carol follows. When Morgan comes across Henry, he finds the kid with a fatal wound on his neck. Henry tells him, "You were supposed to," but Morgan realizes he's not here. Morgan thinks he's dead. Carol admits she accompanied Morgan to keep an eye on him, not to look for Henry.
Morgan tells her she saves people, but can't save the dead. Carol tells him he's not dead, "I know, I don't die," Morgan responds. Morgan and Carol come across a herd walking through an intersection. Carol suggests waiting, but Morgan wants to continue. They come across a bearded walker which has Henry's stick driven through its core.
Carol is saddened. Morgan puts the walker down and continues. Carol asks him to stop and go back to look for Henry. Morgan insists she knows what they'll find but she won't know unless she goes. She tells him he saved her when she ran, she says he can come back too. Morgan explains that he wasn't strong enough and that he has to kill the Saviors.
What do American Pie's lyrics mean?
He gives her Henry's stick and Carol goes to search for Henry while Morgan pursues the Savior escapees. Rick later catches up with Morgan in the woods. Morgan menaces Rick with his fighting stick, momentarily forgetting who Rick is. Rick proposes they kill the Saviors together.
Rick and Morgan find a severed arm and foot with visible walker bites. Someone knocks Rick out cold. Rick comes to and finds himself bound next to Morgan in an abandoned dive bar. Jared and the Savior escapees deliberate about what to do with the Saviors who have fallen sick. Jared insists they ditch the dying Saviors and deliver Rick to Negan.
Rick gives his word that he will not harm them if they return to Hilltop. Morgan tells Jared he only came here to "kill every last one of you. A Savior cuts Morgan and Rick loose so they can help take down the herd. Morgan and Rick kill the walkers and, when the moment is right, methodically mow down the Saviors. Jared is seen escaping. Morgan chases him down.
Morgan comes upon Henry's ghost and is attacked by Jared. He fights him off and he pushes him off and locks him in a room with the walkers, watching closely as Jared gets eaten alive, avenging Benjamin. Rick puts the last of the Saviors down and he and Morgan walks out. Rick asks Morgan why he decided to save him back in Atlanta when they were strangers. Morgan says it was because his son was with him. Morgan and Rick return to Hilltop covered in blood. Morgan approaches Henry and is relieved to realize he is real.
He tells Henry that he killed the man who killed his brother. Henry apologizes to Morgan who embraces the boy and tells him "Don't ever be sorry". Morgan is later sitting alone and weeps to himself. Morgan looks around Hilltop, confused and out of sorts. He strides aggressively towards Alden and the Saviors and knocks someone to the ground before realizing it's Henry. Carol relieves Morgan of his weapon. Before the battle, Rick suggests to Morgan that he stay back, but Morgan vows to finish the Saviors.
Morgan, along with Rick's scout team kills Lance 's group and finds the map, unaware that it's a decoy. Duke surrenders to Morgan, however Morgan stabs him with his staff and then slices his throat, killing him. While crossing a field, Jesus suggests Morgan abstain from killing people by reserving the sharp end of his stick for walkers and the blunt side for the living.
As they walk, they see a massive herd looming in the distance. As Rick's army advances to the ambush spot, whistling begins just as it did on the night Glenn and Abraham died. Negan reaches Rick via walkie to explain that Rick's group is trapped. Negan and the Saviors appear on the crest of a nearby hill in a massive line and open fire, but their guns malfunction. The bullets explode in their hands, killing many Saviors. Rick's army charges. Morgan goes to kill a Savior, but at the last moment heeds Jesus's advice and knocks him out instead. Afterwards, Rick defeats Negan , but after a moment of thought, he tells Siddiq to save him, much to Maggie's anguish who wants to see Negan dead for killing her husband.
Morgan listens in as Rick tells the gathered people that they will start a new world, living in peace. After the war is over, Morgan gives his armor to Carol to pass along to Henry. Morgan goes to the Junkyard and tells Jadis that Rick has invited her to join their community and be part of a group again. She accepts his offer, while also revealing her real name to be Anne , but Morgan chooses to stay behind, alone in the Junkyard, as he has decided that he cannot be around people now and is ready to move on and heal.
Morgan was Jenny's husband and he loved her dearly. At the start of the outbreak, after Jenny succumbed and subsequently reanimated, Morgan could never bring himself to killing her because he had loved her so much. Torn between putting her down to let her finally rest in peace, and having a false idea of her still "alive" in the world, Morgan eventually gets a sniper rifle; with a picture of Jenny on the window, he shoots the walkers on the street. But after taking aim at his dead zombie wife's head for several long moments, he is unable to pull the trigger and eventually breaks down in tears.
Months later, Morgan and Duane are looting a store when Jenny attacks and bites Duane. Only after this is Morgan able to put her down. Morgan, father to Duane, is shown to love and care for his son very much. This is shown as when Duane is upset, Morgan immediately goes to his side to comfort him. Despite the circumstances of the new, post-apocalyptic world, Morgan still tries to raise his son into a morally good man, as stated as he frequently corrects Duane's grammar and proper manners.
Duane's death at his undead mother's hands has caused Morgan to lose his grip on sanity, and has made him vengeful to both walkers, and people. After reclaiming his sanity, Morgan very rarely mentions Duane, possibly trying not to think of his son to avoid letting his grief overwhelm him. However, after Benjamin's death and his own killing of Richard, who caused Benjamin's death, Morgan refers to Benjamin as 'Duane' before almost breaking down. This shows that despite the time that has passed since his son's death, Morgan still deeply misses him and continues to grieve for him.
Morgan and Rick have an interesting introduction to each other. After Rick leaves the hospital, weak and ragged, Morgan mistakes him for a walker and Duane knocks him unconscious with a shovel. Rick wakes up, tied to a bed, and is questioned. After Morgan learns that Rick has not been bitten, Morgan offers Rick shelter and food. The next day, Rick takes Morgan and Duane to the police station where he worked to scavenge the remaining guns and supplies as well as to let them use the facilities to have a hot shower.
After Morgan and Duane collect the weapons, Rick gives them a vehicle. Morgan thanks Rick, saying that he is a good man, and wishes him the best of luck. The following year, Rick, Carl and Michonne return to King County to retrieve guns and ammunition from the police station that Rick worked for in preparation for their dealings with the Governor. As they wander the town, they see main street completely fortified and traps all over the place. They walk through it, avoiding the traps, only to come under fire from Morgan, who has lost his mind after losing his son and doesn't recognize who they are.
After a short shoot out, Carl appears and shoots Morgan in the abdomen, a non-fatal wound due to him wearing body armour. Rick realizes who it is and drags an unconscious Morgan to his apartment. After tying Morgan down to a bed, Rick looks at the walls, which are covered with information regarding Morgan's life after Rick left. Morgan wakes up and attacks Rick with a knife and manages to stab Rick in the upper-left shoulder. The two exchange their life stories after Morgan realizes who he's with. Morgan doesn't have a grip on reality and Rick tries to convince him to come away with him, Carl and Michonne, to which Morgan declines, saying that he "needs to clear".
When Morgan finds the note Abraham left for Rick he seems overwhelmed with joy to see Rick is still alive out there. However when he arrives at Alexandria with Daryl and Aaron he appears disturbed after watching Rick execute Pete, but Rick appears stunned to see his old friend again. Later on, Rick tells him about the recent events in Alexandria, allowing him to understand why he had to do it. They are seen having several conversations after the incident. Rick does not seemed pleased with Morgan's ideology of not killing human threats and appeared angered when he learned that he allowed a group of Wolves to flee which in turn almost caused him to be killed.
When Carol goes missing, Morgan and Rick both head out to find her. They find a trail leading to a barn. A survivors emerges and flees, and just as Rick is about to shoot him, Morgan stops him and Rick misses. Rick is outraged at Morgan, saying that he might have been a Savior though it is later revealed that he is not. It is then that Morgan confesses about what happened with Owen , Denise and Carol. He tells Rick that, because Owen brought Denise outside, she was able to escape to the infirmary and save Carl. Rick shows a level of understanding to Morgan, and "breaks the ice" by telling him that Michonne did indeed take his protein bar.
When Rick and Morgan reunite at the Kingdom, he appears to be happy, as well as relieved when he finds out that Morgan had to kill to save Carol. However, he still appears to be annoyed with Morgan's ideals, as shown when the latter suggests they find another way to deal with Negan and the Saviors. Later, Morgan saves Rick by killing an approaching Savior, and the two work together to fight the Saviors and Scavengers. During the war, Rick begins to worry for Morgan's well-being, talking Morgan down from attacking him when they find each other out in the woods.
The two work together to find and kill the missing Saviors and end up captured. They manage to kill all the Saviors, however, and afterwards, Rick questions why Morgan saved him at the start. Morgan claims that it was only because his son was there. Before the final battle, Rick tries to talk Morgan down from joining them, but he insists on coming with them, wanting to protect those still alive.
Morgan claims that they both lost everything, and calls Rick out by telling him what he did at the bar was something wrong for him. This would be their last interaction in the show, as Morgan leaves for the Junkyard directly after Negan is defeated. Overall, both Rick and Morgan greatly care for and understand each other well. Morgan is one of the people that Rick hallucinates after he is badly injured, showing that he had a lasting impact on him.
Morgan and Carl first interact while on a supply run in King Country. Before learning of Rick's relationship with him, Carl shoots him in his bulletproof vest when Morgan attempted to shoot Rick. Carl also later holds Morgan at gunpoint while he is unconscious. Before returning to the prison, Carl attempts to apologize to Morgan for shooting him, stating that he had no choice, but Morgan coldly tells him never to feel remorse for his actions. The two have rarely interacted following Morgan's arrival in Alexandria.
Michonne and Morgan did not originally interact directly with each other. However, before learning of Rick's relationship with him, Michonne attempts to kill Morgan in order to steal his rifle and stop him from killing her, Carl, and Rick. Michonne is clearly distrustful of him and believes that Morgan is dangerous and possibly insane due to the booby traps and strange writings, but does show concern for him, as she asks Rick as they are leaving King County if Morgan is all right. Michonne's initial reaction to Morgan's arrival at Alexandria remains unknown.
However, the two seem to get along well. Morgan jokingly asks if Michonne took one of his peanut butter protein bars when she, Rick, and Carl met him in King County, but Michonne denies the interrogation. The two work together to lure the mega-herd of walkers away from Alexandria. However, the two disagree with each other often, due to their conflicting opinions regarding killing people. Despite this, the two care for each other, as shown during their reunion in " Rock in the Road ".
At first, Morgan and Eastman's relationship was poor. After hearing Eastman's goat, Tabitha, Morgan trespassed on his property and no doubt was looking to kill him and take over his property. Eastman calmly told him to put his gun down so they could talk but Morgan refused to listen, forcing Eastman to knock him out and imprison him in a cell in his cabin.
Morgan at first begged Eastman to kill him, but he refused and instead gave him a book on the art of peace. Eastman told Morgan of his life as a forensic psychiatrist before the outbreak and when asks what Morgan did before the fall, and what he does now, Morgan replies: "I clear", "Walkers, people, anything that gets anywhere near me, I kill them. He then tells Morgan that the cell door has been open all along and invites Morgan to leave whenever he wants or stay and try to help himself.
However Morgan opened the door and charged at Eastman, still intending to kill him. As they struggled, they knocked into a piece of drywall with a child's artwork that's hanging from the wall, breaking it in two. Instead of escaping, Morgan returned to the cell. Following this incident, Morgan and Eastman's relationship grew stronger after he saved Eastman's goat from the Walkers and assisted him in burying walkers in his makeshift cemetery.
Eastman gives Morgan his own staff and, over time, taught Morgan Aikido, at the same time Morgan continued studying the Art of Peace. It is evident that Eastman and Morgan became good friends. While on a scavenging mission, after seeing a Walker that was a man he has previously killed, Morgan was paralyzed with fear and Eastman pushed him out of the way and killed the walker but was bitten in the process. Back in the house, Eastman told Morgan there was enough power, food and security to last Morgan the rest of his life, but advised Morgan against being alone. Before dying, Eastman gave Morgan his rabbit's foot.
It was Morgan who buried his friend in the graveyard before setting out to find Terminus. While Morgan seems to have recovered from Eastman's death, he still uses the teachings he learned from Eastman to ensure he doesn't lose his sanity again and strongly enforced Eastman's code to never kill humans again, claiming all life is precious. Morgan still uses the fighting skills he learned from Eastman as well. Morgan and Daryl first interact when he rescues him and Aaron when they are trapped in a van surrounded by walkers after falling for a trap set up by the Wolves.
Daryl asks why he rescued them, to which he replies that all life is precious and is eventually recruited by Daryl and Aaron to Alexandria when Daryl becomes aware of Morgan's connection to Rick when he shows him the Washington, D. Daryl seems to respect Morgan for saving Carol's life, but heavily disagrees with his philosophy, telling him to "wake the hell up.
The two seem to be on good terms now that both Morgan and Daryl want the Saviors dead, as seen when they work together on numerous occasions during the war. Morgan and Aaron first interact when he rescues him and Daryl when they are trapped in a van surrounded by walkers after falling for a trap set up by the Wolves. Grateful, Aaron tells him of Alexandria and though he refuses at first but upon learning of their connection to Rick, Aaron takes him back.
Morgan and Carol initially have a poor relationship and are nemeses over their ideologies of dealing with human threats. They first interact while Carol is handing out drinks at the construction site to lure the Walkers in the quarry away and Morgan questions her if she was once a police officer like Rick. Carol questions him of why he thinks this and Morgan replies it is because he notices that she is always watching and ready to handle things. Carol simply replies "aren't you sweet" and walks away. During the attack on Alexandria by the Wolves, Morgan and Carol's differences are shown by Morgan's refusal to kill the attackers and Carol killing them without hesitation.
Morgan appears to be disgusted at Carol killing the Wolves, including the one that he and Gabriel had subdued and tied up. Following the attack Morgan and Carol pass each other on the street and exchange glances without a word. It is shown in " Heads Up " that Carol completely disagrees and is annoyed with Morgan's philosophy of not killing people and appears to be highly suspicious of him as she follows him and Denise to the cell where the Wolves leader, Owen, is being held by Morgan and demands to know who is inside but Morgan blocks her from entering.
In "Start to Finish", after a massive heard of Walkers enters Alexandria, Morgan saves Carol after she falls down and the two take refuge in the same building here Denise and Owen are. Once safely inside, Carol reveals that she does not trust Morgan in the least but that she never thought he was lying. Later on, Carol tricks Morgan and pushes him aside and runs to the basement to kill Owen.
Once downstairs Morgan and Carol confront each other over the fate of the prisoner. Carol is determined to kill him, but Morgan refuses, claiming that they can be better people than the Wolves. Carol refuses to listen, forcing Morgan to knock the knife out of her hand and the two get into a physical confrontation where Carol attempts to stab Morgan, Ultimately Morgan overpowers her and knocks her out before himself being knocked out by Owen. Following this incident, Carol claims that she should have killed Morgan, but Morgan simply says she can't.
Carol does not reveal to Rick that Morgan held Owen in the cell however. When Carol leaves Alexandria, Morgan and Rick immediately pursue her. They follow a trail, and Morgan goes ahead to find Carol while Rick goes back to Alexandria. When he eventually finds her, he tries to persuade her to return. He also manages to patch her up from the injury she sustained in " East ".
He continues after her and eventually finds her once again, this time with a gun to her head. Without hesitation, Morgan saves Carol's life by shooting her torturer. Morgan continues to care for Carol while they are at the Kingdom. Despite her cold demeanor, Morgan assures her he won't let her die out there.
When Carol moves to the house on the outskirts of the Kingdom her and Morgan seem to have come to a middle ground on their differing views and continue to regard each other with respect and mild friendship from that point on. Morgan keeps bringing her provisions and Carol even invites him inside the house to ask how he's been despite her predominant desire to be left alone. Carol states in "Hearts Still Beating" that she couldn't care less about Morgan and the Kingdom, however in "Bury Me Here" she shows concern for his mental state and advices him to stay in the house while she goes back to the Kingdom to convince Ezekiel to fight.
In "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life" Carol approaches Morgan and tries to convince him not to fight the Saviors alone, showing once more that she actually cares about him. At the end of the battle in Alexandria Carol spots Morgan sitting alone on the steps of a house and sits next to him.
Morgan and Carol work together to save Ezekiel in " Honor " and shows further worry for his mental state when he wants to kill an already surrendering Gavin. In " Dead or Alive Or ", Carol recognizes that Morgan is "not fine" and makes him take a break, showing that she cares for him. The two have a heart-to-heart as Morgan refuses to try and find a missing Henry, claiming that she saves people while he "watches them die.
In " Wrath ", Carol carefully takes Morgan's stick away from him when he very nearly kills Henry in a blind rage, showing further concern for his mental health. Later on, Carol seems to agree with Jesus when he tries to help him find his way back to the man he once was before the war and Benjamin's death. After Negan is defeated, Morgan bids farewell to Carol, giving his armor to her for Henry and saying that he's going to try to be okay, before leaving for the Junkyard.
Owen and Morgan were shown to be the polar opposite of each other: Morgan is a peaceful survivor who refuses to kill human beings while Owen is a remorseless murderer who seems to find killing amusing. Owen and Morgan first interact while Morgan is camped out in the woods. Even though he holds Morgan at gunpoint, the two start off making some friendly conversation, Owen's true nature is shown when he makes it clear that he intends to rob Morgan of everything he has and then slaughter him. Morgan is able to survive the attack by Owen and his partner and leaves them unconscious in a car instead of killing them.
Following the brutal attack on Alexandria, Owen attacks Morgan while waiting in a home. He recognizes Morgan from their previous encounter and seems to find it amusing that Morgan refuses to kill people and tells him he should have killed him the woods. Morgan eventually gains the upper hand in the fight, apologizes to Owen and knocks him unconscious again, still refusing to kill him. It is shown the Morgan has imprisoned Owen in Alexandria and tells him his story of his redemption due to his friend Eastman and that redemption is possible for him to. Owen smirks and gives a subtle threat that if his cut does not kill him, he will kill Morgan and all the remaining survivors in the safe-zone, children included.
Despite his threat, Morgan is shown in "Heads Up" enlisting the help of Denise to treat Owen's wound and refusing to allow Carol to enter the cell, showing that Morgan cares for the Owen somewhat. This is evident in "Start to Finish" where Morgan protects him from Carol. Morgan is visibly upset when he sees Owen as a walker after being killed by Carol and mercifully puts him down.
Gabriel and Morgan rarely interact although they seem to be on good terms. Morgan saves Gabriel's life during the Wolves attack on the safe-zone even after Carol told him to leave Gabriel to die. Both also subdue the Wolf that attacked Gabriel and do not want to kill him, although he is shot dead by Carol, shocking both men. Denise and Morgan seem to have a stable relationship. Morgan enlists her help in order to treat Owen's infected wound, an act she reluctantly does. Denise seems to care for Morgan as she begs Owen not to kill him or Carol after he escapes from his bonds. Morgan was most likely saddened by Denise's death.
Rosita and Morgan rarely interact, though she appears to be distrusting of Morgan, due to him keeping Wolf in the basement a secret, furthermore when he takes Denise hostage. She was shown to angered at this. Their relationship continues to fall when Morgan tries to talk everyone down from fighting the Saviors, twice, and Rosita goes as far to insult him while talking to Carol. However, their relationship starts to improve when Morgan realizes the Saviors must be taken down.
Morgan and Ezekiel seem to have a good relationship. Morgan is grateful for Ezekiel letting him and Carol stay at the Kingdom. When Carol confronts him regarding Ezekiel and the Kingdom, Morgan doesn't blame her, saying that "it is a lot. Morgan also decides to keep Ezekiel's secret regarding the deal with the Saviors.
Ezekiel is shown to trust Morgan's judgement and advice as shown in "Rock in the Road", when the King asks Morgan for his opinion on joining Rick's cause. Ezekiel, like Carol, also shows deep concern for Morgan's mental state during his breakdown in "Bury Me Here" and tries to convince him to get back with him and his soldiers to the Kingdom, telling him he shouldn't be alone out there. Benjamin showed nothing but kindness to Morgan who reciprocated the same attitude back to him. The two bonded over their Aikido sessions as Benjamin trained with a staff. Benjamin viewed Morgan along with Ezekiel as his mentors and valued their beliefs of pacifism.
Benjamin died telling Morgan everything was fine and recited the Aikido proverb that to injure an opponent is to injure oneself. Benjamin's death had a profound impact on Morgan as he instantly began shifting back to his fragile mental state of "clearing" and ultimately killed Richard who indirectly caused the tragedy. While explaining his actions, Morgan mistakenly calls Benjamin "Duane," showing he saw Benjamin as his own son. Morgan now wears Benjamin's armor in his honor. After the Militia captures Jared, Morgan, still wearing Benjamin's armor, has to be talked down from killing Jared on the spot.
When Jared manages to escape the Hilltop, Morgan goes searching for him, eventually purposefully trapping Jared to be devoured by walkers. He later tells Henry that he has killed Jared, smiling as he does so. Morgan was distance with Henry at first, believing that he will die. Morgan later trains Henry in Aikido. Morgan believed Henry was dead when he went missing and was haunted by a vision of Henry. Morgan was surprised and pleased that Henry was alive, and told him that he killed the man who killed his brother. Morgan and Richard have a conflicted relationship, due to Morgan's refusal to help Richard convince Ezekiel to fight.
Later on, Richard and Morgan make amends for their differences, but this is short-lived, since Morgan finds out that Richard indirectly caused Benjamin's death. Richard confesses the truth to Morgan and also shares his past with him. Despite this, Morgan strangles him with his hands. The reasons for this may be varied from Morgan simply being angry, to him distrusting Richard and his future plans to lead the Kingdom's army, to trying to convince the Saviors that the Kingdom is on their side by executing the traitor in front of them. Despite all this, Morgan buries Richard with his daughter's backpack in the grave the soldier dug for himself, completing his plan.
The two are not seen interacting much, but they seem to have a good relationship, as Morgan and Jerry are shown working together during their drop offs to the Saviors, showing they trust each other. Following the deaths of Benjamin and Richard, Jerry expresses concern for Morgan when he and the Kingdom army find him in Carol's cottage, alone. After this, the two do not interact again, and it is unknown how Jerry reacted to Morgan leaving Virginia.
Morgan and Jared have an incredibly negative relationship. During their first meeting, Morgan is disinterested in Jared's mocking nature, and only regards him as a small part of the bigger threat. Regardless, Jared continues to mock Morgan, even when he is threatened with death, such as in "The Damned", where Morgan tries to kill Jared after the Militia slaughters multiple members of the Saviors at an outpost and a majority of the remaining ones surrendered.
However, Jesus stops him. In "Monsters", Jared continues to mock Morgan, and even makes fun of Benjamin posthumously, which leads to Morgan training a rifle on him again. However, he and the Militia are almost immediately distracted by walkers coming down a hill and Jared uses this chance to try an escape, Morgan chases Jared and the other Saviors into the woods, he executes one of them and prepares to shoot Jared next, but Jesus stops him again. When Morgan and Rick are kidnapped by an escaped Jared and a band of fellow escaped Saviors, the pair end up in a scuffle, Morgan kicks Jared away before closing a gate and holding Jared to it, allowing walkers to eat him alive.
Morgan shows no remorse for this and later smiles to Henry when informing him of the news. Gavin and Morgan have a poor relationship made worse when Jared killed Benjamin. Gavin also appears scared of Morgan after he kills Richard and recoils when Morgan approaches him.
Though later, once Gavin captures Ezekiel, Morgan overheard him apologizing to Ezekiel for Benjamin's death, saying that he liked the kid and did not want him to be killed, though this continued show of remorse did not lessen Morgan's hatred of Gavin. After Gavin takes Ezekiel hostage, Morgan and Carol Peletier set out to save him, which they do by killing all of Gavin's men, Gavin is shot in the leg and was horrified upon witnessing Morgan kill one of his men by pulling his intestines out of his bullet wound, he tries to escape and hide but Morgan eventually finds him.
As Morgan prepares to kill Gavin, he is stabbed through the neck by Henry, Morgan is shocked by this. Although the two have barely interacted, Tara and Morgan are shown to be friendly towards each other. Despite Morgan being involved in Denise's capture, Tara doesn't seem to hold this against them, as she is shown to be happy and hugs him when she sees him upon arrival at The Kingdom. As the war begins, the two are seen working together several times, such as during the raid on the satellite outpost, and when they, along with Daryl, crash a truck into the Sanctuary, flooding it with walkers.
The two have a neutral relationship, as while they work together during the war, they appear to have different opinions when it comes to dealing with the captured Saviors at the satellite outpost. As Morgan is about to kill Jared, Jesus stops him, which greatly angers him. Not long after, they both get into a fight, and he very nearly impales him in the neck with his stick, but comes to his senses shortly after. He leaves, not wanting any part of the imprisonment of the Saviors.

Later, however, the two start to repair their relationship when Jesus guides him back to believing all life is precious once more. After the war ends, however, Morgan leaves on his own, and the two do not interact again after this. Morgan and Anne have a good relationship. Even though they have met only once. Morgan convinces Anne to move to Alexandria, which she is grateful for, naming him as one of the three people that helped her become a member of the communities. Sign In Don't have an account?
