You probably all know that Season 6 of The Walking Dead is right around the corner…of the security wall, and OH NO, THE GATE WAS LEFT OPEN! That impromptu performance references something that happened in Season 5, but you might not remember that if it’s been a while since you’ve seen or thought about the show. I’ve got just the cure for you, and I’m not even a medical professional.

Here are the five things that you should refresh yourself with before watching the Season 6 premiere this weekend, as each one plays an interesting part in the super-sized episode, which definitely sits in the upper echelon of Walking Dead episodes to me. It’s huge, it’s got structure and there’s always something going on. I'm keeping this spoiler-free for the premiere, though all of Season 5's events are up for grabs.

Morgan is Back!
One of the things that plays into making Morgan a fan favorite character, beyond Lennie James being great and knowing his comic history, is how sparingly he has been used over the past five seasons. His mysterious trek to Rick & Co. in Season 5 paid off swimmingly in the finale, which callously reunited Rick and Morgan at the opposite ends of where their personalities were in the Season 3 episode “Clean,” when Morgan was stacking bats in his belfry. The premiere handles Morgan’s immersion into Alexandria and Rick’s daily life more expertly than I expected, and it allows several angles of that kinship to stand out. It makes one think that Morgan and Lennie James will never outstay their welcomes on this show.
