The latest episode of The Walking Dead season seven has got a whole host of characters - including Morgan and Carol - in place for the upcoming war against The Saviours.

While Carol is willing to wait until King Ezekiel is prepared to lead, however, it's Morgan who has become a law unto himself - the death of Benjamin (Logan Miller) sees the character give up his abstinence from killing by deciding to go on a murder spree of any one of Negan's crew he comes across. 

The final shot of the episode, which is titled 'Bury Me Here,' sees Morgan sat alone sharpening his stick on the doorstep of Carol's cottage - the same stick with which Eastman (John Carroll Lynch) taught him aikido before stumbling upon Rick and the group at Alexandria. As the camera swoops in on him, the character can be seen turning his head to look over his shoulder into the open doorway of the cottage.

Showrunner Scott Gimple, writer of this week's episode, shed some light over what that final scene means.

He told Yahoo! TV: “I would only take it as, he’s in hyper vigilance mode. Any little sound, he’s gonna be set off, because of the place that he’s in. There’s no one in the house.”

He is in that place where he is not right,“ Gimple continued, drawing parallels with the Morgan rick and Michonne collide with in season three episode, 'Clear.' 

“He is not completely gone right now. He isn’t, but it’s there. He could go for a good while where he’s not bothered, but it will accumulate, and it will metastasize, and it will come back to haunt him.”

The Walking Dead airs in the UK tonight, 9pm on FOX.
