Why The Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes Gets No Response On His Walkie Talkie
It’s been more than a year now, but way back in The Walking Dead pilot, Sheriff Rick Grimes befriended a man named Morgan. They exchanged walkie talkies and promised to communicate with each other regularly. We haven’t heard anything from Morgan since, but Rick talking into his walkie talkie has become a sort of narrative device for the show. Sort of like Captain Kirk’s “Captains Logs”, every now and then Rick fires his walkie talkie up to tell Morgan what’s going on, in the hopes that he’s listening.
Well, now we know why Morgan never responds, thanks to this puppet simulation of what’s happening on the other end of Rick’s communications.
