When fan favorite Morgan showed up again at the end of season five of The Walking Dead, he had a new toy. In a world filled with guns and samurai swords, Morgan now carries around a wooden staff, ala Donatello from the Ninja Turtles.
Although we have seen him use before, his martial arts ability with the staff were really on display in last Sunday’s episode, where the Wolves attack Alexandria. At some point during Morgan’s survival (much of which viewers have not seen), he decided that killing humans — even dangerous ones — was not something he could do. The staff became his non-lethal answer to that moral quandary.
During a climatic scene near the end of the episode, Morgan found himself surrounded by five or six Wolves. Harnessing his inner Yoda, Morgan proceeded to lay the smack down on these savages and send them scurrying away in retreat. Naturally, since the internet is also abuzz over the new Star Wars trailer that was released Monday, a mash-up was inevitable.
We think Morgan would make an excellent Jedi, complete with blue lightsaber.
