I didnt jump to that conclusion. I was responding to someone.
My issues with this episode mostly have to do with it not advancing the Woodbury plot. And some shoddy writing.
Now if Morgan shows up to save the day or there was something important in the hitchiker bag, then sure, but all the events in this episode could have happened in a brief dialogue. It was just filler IMO.
I guess I've never understood why people equate huge physical changes to progression exclusively. Or even when people assert that "progression" is a form of good storytelling, implying that focusing on character moments means that its a poor episode.
I dunno, I see people (mostly on sites like this) that NEED some giant payoff, they NEED some sort of twist for something to be "worthwhile". To me, i enjoyed the character moments and appreciated the insight into the characters, which is something i couldn't say about most of this series' episodes.
