"King County"[]

Over a decade after leaving, Morgan returns to King County in order to finally put his son down. Without Morgan around to take care of the walkers, King County has become overrun by small herds and it has also been partially reclaimed by nature. However, Morgan struggles to even enter the house where he had left Duane before being joined by Grace and Mo, the latter of whom had deduced that Morgan was going back to King County for some reason after seeing it mentioned on the walls of Morgan's Houseboat along with Jenny and Duane's names.

Dwight and Sherry arrive, hunting Morgan for PADRE. Morgan leads his family back to the house where he and Duane had lived after Jenny's death, hiding out from both the PADRE forces and a herd. At night, the PADRE forces draw in more walkers with flares and threaten to set the house on fire to force them out. After a failed escape attempt, Dwight agrees to take Morgan to the house where he had left Duane so that he can put his son to rest. However, while Morgan finds Jenny's corpse, there is no sign of Duane, leading Morgan to conclude that Duane had gotten out a long time ago and he has lost his chance to lay Duane to rest. After betraying PADRE, Dwight and Sherry leave town to get their son.

After learning that the flares have set the house where Mo's trapped on fire, Morgan rushes back and takes out the walkers outside. Fleeing to the attic, Mo finds a zombified Duane chained up, having been moved by Morgan at some point, the memory of which he had blocked out. With Mo in danger, Morgan finally shoots Duane with the gun that Rick Grimes had given him, laying Duane to rest. Morgan subsequently buries Jenny and Duane outside of the ruins of the house before he, Grace and Mo are forced to leave to seek June's help after Grace is bitten by a surviving walker.

"More Time Than You Know"[]
