I agree. Morgan has lost all hope. More, he refuses to allow even a glimmer of hope because he is sure it will be destroyed, It was the genius of the writers to offer rick as counterpoint because we could see, despite everything, Rick still has hope. Maybe not a lot and he might even think he has none, but he still pushes on with a vague idea of it making a differnce. Not that he really believes it but because it is all he can do. The human condition in a nutshell...
Andrew Lincoln continues to impress. His portrayal of Rick is not only great tv, its also one of the best acting jobs ever in the horror genre, imo,
