Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

This Sunday brought the conclusion of Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead, with back-to-back episodes, 2.14 “Wrath” and 2.15 “North.” Until now, we’d seen Travis separated from his son, Chris, who had decided to head back to California from Mexico with his new besties, the U.S. frat boy “Bros” Brandon and Derek. He then went on to miraculously reunited with his fiancee Madison, who had found safe haven with her daughter Alicia at a Mexican hotel, where they created a community with the existing occupants. Ofelia, who left the hotel without a trance, is making her way back to the United States in hopes of finding her boyfriend. Meanwhile, the safety over at the Colonia was compromised, and Nick warns his love interest Luciana and their leader Alejandro that the Warehouse gang controlled by Marco is likely planning an attack.

Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2, Episode 13 review

Fear the Walking Dead

Directed by Christoph Schrewe

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

Last week on Fear The Walking Dead, Madison foolishly turned on the huge, red sign atop the hotel tower hoping to signal to her son, Nick, who had decided not to travel on with his family. But as expected, the lit sign instead was a beacon for every survivor in the area that a refuge was available. So, that’s why it’s not surprising that this week’s episode, 2.13 “Date of Death,” began by showing a large group of survivors banging at the chained-up hotel gates, desperate to get in. But the hotel group is too scared to let anyone else in, even though the people are pleading with them. Madison does feel remorse for having to turn everyone away after inadvertently luring them there. In the crowd, though, is Madison’s fiance Travis, who was separated from her at the end of the mid-Season 2 finale when he left to be with his disturbed son, Chris. Travis makes his way up to the front, and they manage to squeeze him in without anyone else getting in, and he is reunited with Madison! But, where’s Chris?, Madison and her daughter Alicia ask.

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

On last week’s Fear the Walking Dead, Nick bonded with Luciana, and helped out the Colonia by creating more pills for them to trade with local gang leader Marco. Meanwhile, Madison, Alicia, and Strand along with hotel workers Elena and Hector formed an alliance with the hotel guest survivors to rid the place of its walkers, so they can make a real home. But, Travis and Chris did not make an appearance, and Ofelia is still missing!

On the latest episode, 2.12 “Pillar of Salt,” Ofelia finally returns!!! Still no Chris and Travis storyline, but there’s plenty of Nick and Luciana at the Colonia; more escapades at the Mexican Gang Costco; Strand suffers an injury from an act of revenge; and Madison once again turns her attention to her quest for her son Nick.

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

It took three episodes starting with the mid-season 2 premiere of Fear the Walking Dead to catch us up with all the characters, who had been separated and left without shelter during the mid-season finale. We saw Nick on his own journey searching for a place where the dead are not considered “monsters,” and he’s seemingly found it at the Colonia. After their yacht was seized, Madison, Strand, Ofelia, and Alicia were forced to abandon their plans to regroup with the others and instead took shelter at a hotel, which turned out to actually be occupied with both the living and the dead; and Travis was trying to lead his unstable son Chris away from others, but unfortunately came upon some U.S. spring breaker bros who were enticing the unstable boy away.

That brings us to the next installment, 2.11 “Pablo & Jessica,” which shows many of our primary cast members in one episode, except for Ofelia, who disappeared without a trace from the hotel a while back, and Chris and Travis, who were last seen with the bros standing over a murdered farmer and his chickens.

Air Date: Sunday, September 4, 2016, 9pm

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

Since its mid-season 2 premiere with Episode 2.8, Fear the Walking Dead has mostly focused on Nick and his journey to self-discovery and his quest to settle down in a place where the “dead” aren’t considered monsters. It seems he might have found that place in the Colonia he’s joined in Mexico. Meanwhile, his mother Madison and sister Alicia are reluctantly on their own path with fellow survivors Ofelia and Victor Strand, who were last seen fighting off walkers at an abandoned hotel.

But, we still haven’t found out what happened to Madison’s fiance Travis and his son Chris, who took off on their own because Chris was seemingly going off the rails and his father was concerned for him.

This new episode, 2.10 “Do Not Disturb,” we catch up with Travis and Chris on the road, and also go back to Alicia, who’s still stuck in her room in the hotel.

Fear the Walking Dead 2.9

Fear the Walking Dead
Season 2 Episode 9 “Los Muertos”
Directed by Deborah Chow
Written by Alan Page
Starring Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Mercedes Mason, Danay Garcia
AMC
Air Date: Sunday, August 28, 2016, 9pm

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

Last week’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead, which was the mid-season 2 premiere, focused solely on Nick and his hazardous journey through the Mexican desert that ended with him finding a safe haven. But, as we know with this show, and it’s parent show The Walking Dead, anything that seems too good to be true certainly is.

This new episode, 2.9 “Los Muertos,” brings us back to Nick at Colonia, where he awakens in the infirmary to see the area is desolate. He roams around outside to see where all the residents are and he finds them when he follows the sound of a little girl crying. She points down below. “Mi Papa,” she says. We see a man being led to a school bus by Luciana and Alejandro. Luciana is teary eyed as she asks the man if he’s “ready.” He is, and goes into the bus and out the back door, which leads to a yard with Walkers. The residents are chanting in Spanish (“We come from the dead and to the dead we surrender ourselves”) as the man sacrifices himself to the Walkers, much to Nick’s shock.

Fear The Walking Dead 2.8 Nick

Fear the Walking Dead
Season 2 Episode 8 “Grotesque” (mid-season 2 premiere)
Directed by Dan Sackheim

Starring Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Mercedes Mason, Danay Garcia

Air Date: Sunday, August 21, 2016, 9pm

Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead…

Fear the Walking Dead, a prequel to AMC’s popular series The Walking Dead, centers on a group of Los Angeles-area survivors of a zombie apocalypse. The second season returned this Sunday with the mid-season premiere, 2.8 “Grotesque.” As this show tends to do, it starts out quite slow, too slow for a premiere, and focuses on one returning character, Nick, even though we’ve been waiting since May to find out what happened to all the people in the main group.

Here’s some catch-up information before we get to the recap of Episode 2.8: The short 6-episode first season introduced us to Madison and her two children, Nick and Alicia, and her boyfriend Travis and his son Chris, who joined up with other survivors to escape Los Angeles. The far superior and extended second season, which will run 15 episodes, premiered in April and saw the group with Victor Strand on his yacht after they are forced to evacuate the city. After several scuffles with some nefarious characters and a failed plan to settle in San Diego (there is no more San Diego!), they arrive in Mexico at a compound run by Celia, the son of Strand’s boyfriend Thomas, who has been bitten and is dying. Turns out, Celia is running some kind of cult of the dead there, thinking that the undead are still people, and Nick is taken in by this belief. Chris, meanwhile, is having some kind of nervous breakdown, and wants his father to let him go — but of course, Travis won’t give up on his son. Madison, on the other hand, is forced to let her son Nick go when he chooses not to follow his mom and sister after the compound is set ablaze and the remaining survivors scatter.

Fear The Walking Dead 1.6

Fear the Walking Dead
Season 1 Episode 6 “The Good Man” (Season Finale)
Directed by Stefan Schwartz
Written by Robert Kirkman & Dave Erickson
Starring Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ruben Blades, Mercedes Mason, Patricia Reyes Spindola
AMC
Air Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015, 9pm

Tonight saw the end of Season 1 of Fear the Walking Dead, AMC’s prequel series that was supposed to show us the start of the zombie apocalypse that resulted in the events of The Walking Dead. This prequel spin-off was only six episodes, and the first four episodes alone had a lot of set-up, where people were becoming infected and it was assumed at first to be the flu. That supposed illness turned into the infected dying, and then coming back to “life” somewhat, attacking the first responders there to help them. But, even when witnessing these unbelievable altercation, people found it difficult to comprehend that something was truly wrong here and most ignored the warning signs that things were going to get worse.

Last week’s episode, 1.5 “Cobalt,” finally saw some action, with a lot of revelations, and was the most like its parent show. The season finale (Episode 1.5 “The Good Man”), on the other hand, was a lot less shocking, and pretty predictable.

Air Date: Sunday, September 27, 2015, 9pm

Here we are at the penultimate episode of AMC’s very short first season of Fear the Walking Dead and finally we’re getting some real information. One vital piece of information revealed was the meaning of codeword “Cobalt,” the episode title, which was also the codename for this Walking Dead prequel. But, we’ll get back to that in a minute.

Spoilers…

In the previous four episodes, we mostly dealt with guidance counselor Madison (Kim Dickens), her druggie son, Nick (Frank Dillane), her annoying daughter Alicia, (Alycia Debnam Carey), and her do-gooder naive fiance Travis (Cliff Curtis). They saw events unfold that brought about chaos to the streets of Los Angeles, where the seemingly dead were walking, and back home, they witnessed their infected neighbors “turn” into the undead. It took this group a while to come to terms with the fact that something was truly wrong and that they needed to get out of town.
