This episode is all about family Morgan and what he thinks for Mo and it's the return of a character who gave up everything for her family Madison Clark.
It is very exciting to have Kim come back to the show and continue to tell her story.
Very exciting to get to do it through the eyes of Morgan Jones, a character who knows about Madison Clark, but has never actually crossed paths with her, and it's just such lightning in a bottle to get these two characters together in this way.
She's better off with me than you.
And you'll get over it.
[MO CRYING.]
I did.
The audience starts to put it together, as Morgan does, is that Madison is actually this person that Hey, stop! the people who buried him were after and that she is stealing children? Which leaves us with this huge question why in the hell is Madison Clark stealing kids and taking kids away from their parents.
- [CRYING.]
- Someone who family was everything to her, why is she now ripping families apart? I know you miss your daddy.
But you're going to be better off without him.
Someone who has been working for PADRE and what we come to learn about PADRE is that they are an organization that has a philosophy family is a weakness, family is something to fight against .
We start to then gain some insight into the way that PADRE has manipulated Madison into collecting children for them.
One time isn't enough.
We're going to need you to keep doing it.
We see how they dangled the carrot of reuniting her with her children, but then break her to the point where she wouldn't want to be around them.
And it gives us insight into Madison's way of justifying things, as a character, but it also gives us insight into what PADRE's doing.
You interfered with an egg.
An egg? That's what you call the kids that you steal? Not stealing, rescuing.
We have heard about PADRE in a positive light.
What is PADRE? Something better.
Or, at least, the possibility of it.
But what we find out here is that, yes, maybe it is trying to rebuild civilization, but it's trying to do it in a pretty unconventional way, so I don't think this is what anyone was expecting.
Get off me.
Let me go.
Madison is shocked when Morgan recognizes the names on the tattoos on her wrists because Madison hasn't encountered anyone who knows her kids for a very long time.
From Morgan's perspective, seeing Madison is literally like coming face-to-face with a ghost.
You're Madison Clark.
♪ How do you know my name? Madison's point of view of Morgan is pretty complicated because she knows that there is not a whole lot that they can do to get Mo back, now that she's been handed over to PADRE.
There's only one way PADRE's ever going to give her back to you.
You're going to have to help me rescue someone else's kid to take the place of yours.
No, I'm not doing that.
What, there's no other way to give them what they want without taking some child - away from its family? - There isn't.
No.
There's a lot that Madison can relate to on an emotional level.
Morgan is in a position where he is willing to kidnap a pregnant woman to make a trade for his own child.
He's sacrificing kind of his ideals for Mo.
I've seen a mother lose her baby once before.
I don't want to see that ever again.
Then you'll never see your daughter again.
GOLDBERG: Morgan doesn't want to think he is going down the same path as Madison, although Madison does warn him and say, "Are you sure you want to go down this path?" Everything alright? Yeah, it is for me.
GOLDBERG: Morgan realizes it is a very slippery slope.
It's fine.
We should just get you to PADRE.
- That's what we should do.
- Okay.
GOLDBERG: When family is leveraged, you'll do a lot of things that you don't want to do.
MAN: Check the house first.
Shit.
What? They found me.
MAN: Who's this? Someone she stole a child from.
What do you want? I just found a way to motivate her to do what we want.
- I'm listening.
- It's not gonna work.
♪ Tell him where to find her goddamn kids! I can't.
Because they're already dead.
GOLDBERG: Seeing Madison have that emotional reaction at least for Morgan makes him realize the Madison that he heard about is still in there somewhere.
This is where kind of the hard exterior that Madison has built up to protect herself, to allow herself to do the things she was doing for PADRE all melts away, and her real emotion comes out.
[WALKERS GROWL NEARBY.]
We found this in her pack.
We know when they're coming to pick her up.
We're gonna surprise her friends at the beach.
Bury them all in the sand if we have to.
Someone will talk.
Someone will tell us where our kids are.
GOLDBERG: Something you see in a lot of old Westerns, it's called a "sand necktie.
" We thought that there could be a really horrifying zombie apocalypse spin on that.

♪ You don't deserve to go out like this.
I told you, I can't [GROWLING.]
CHAMBLISS: When Morgan's standing opposite Walker Ava when he realizes that his actions may have actually contributed to her death, it lands on him that he's doing the same exact thing that Madison did, and it's kind of in that moment that Madison reignited her kind of will to live, and she saves Morgan.
I'm gone, but you're not.
She doesn't want to see him go down the same road that she went down with PADRE, and there's one way she can get revenge on PADRE, it's by helping Morgan get his daughter back and by preventing someone else from being manipulated by them in the same way she was.
♪ GUARD: Who's he? Collector.
He has something to offer.
There's rafts out there with people on them.
GOLDBERG: Morgan's playing a very dangerous game.
He feels like he has to give something up in order to get PADRE to trust him.
- Get in.
- And that means he's gonna have to give up everybody else in the rafts.
Now, there's a piece of that, which is "If they're on the inside with me, they can help me.
" And I think that Morgan believes with their help, with Madison's help, it's all gonna be okay.
But it's definitely a gamble, and looking forward into Season 8, we're just gonna have to see how that gamble works out.
Where is PADRE? Been meaning to tell you.
♪ I don't know.
We will most definitely get to see PADRE in Season 8.
It's something that we have been teasing since the beginning of Season 7, and there are many more surprises to come with what that place is like and the people who live there.
You're just gonna have to watch and see, but it's not gonna look like anything you've seen.
