Critic Consensus: Moving performances by Lennie James and Melissa McBride as their characters get their mojo back move the season's arc forward in "Bury Me Here," though the pacing is slow and their journeys seem relatively implausible.

Critic reviews for Bury Me Here
It's something of a one-dimensional story, but Morgan's transformation is fascinating, and will clearly be a crucial factor in the coming war.
a solid bit of piece-moving that finally gives us back Morgan and Carol ready to fight
Finally, it's the episode fans of Morgan Jones (Lennie James) have been waiting for!
If the episode does a disservice to Ezekiel, it's even worse with Carol, whose decision to return to the fold is given all the weight a few minutes of screen time can muster.
"Bury Me Here" is mainly about doing the necessary plot work of finally getting Ezekiel and the Kingdom on board with the idea of fighting the Saviors.
It's hard to say whether or not these turning points needed an entire episode to occur, or if Scott M. Gimple might have been able to squeeze another plotline in just for the sake of the hour not feeling so isolated from everything else that happened.
