Fear the Walking Dead 2.9

Fear the Walking Dead
Season 2 Episode 9 “Los Muertos”
Directed by Deborah Chow

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

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.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

There is one thing you can count on from Tim Burton, and it’s that he has a knack for bringing out the art from the strange narrative. Though his most recent work has been a bag of mixed results, the filmmaker has stayed true to his style, never once wavering from it. And that really shows in the first new trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

The film is an adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name. Considering its title and plot, it seems like Burton was born to direct this film, which centers on a boy who is tasked with protecting a refuge for children with unusual abilities from those who seek to expose their sanctity. Check out the full trailer below, along with a poster for the movie.

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.

Fear The Walking Dead 1.5

Fear the Walking Dead
Season 1 Episode 5 “Cobalt”
Directed by Kari Skogland
Written by David Wiener
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, 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.

‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Episode 1.4 Most Talked About Scene

Fear The Walking Dead Episode 1.4 Madison Clark AMC

Warning: Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead Episode 1.4.

In my review of Fear the Walking Dead Episode 1.4, “Not Fade Away,” I refer to a telling scene where Daniel relays to Madison a story from his childhood. The take away from the tale is that Daniel had realized that his father was a fool. This here should be a tip that not only is Madison’s fiance Travis a fool to trust what the government is saying to them, but he’s just a fool in general. During this exchange, Madison admits to going beyond the fence outside the safe zone, and what she discovers in the abandoned neighborhood is upsetting, and raises even more questions.

Watch the scene here in the video below.

Fear the Walking Dead Episode 4

Fear the Walking Dead
Season 1 Episode 4 “Not Fade Away”
Directed by Kari Skogland
Written by Meaghan Oppenheimer
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, September 20, 2015, 9pm

Fear the Walking Dead portrays the events leading up to the zombie plague that wiped out most of humanity, as seen on AMC’s The Walking Dead. So far, it’s been three episodes of the people of Los Angeles behaving strangely, getting sick, and not staying dead. Chaos, rioting, and looting ensued, while most citizens didn’t have a clue what was really going on, and, more importantly, the horror that was to come.

High school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens), her son, Nick (Frank Dillane), daughter Alicia, (Alycia Debnam Carey), and fiance Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) have all seen firsthand what happens after someone is infected. Last we saw our main characters, they were making a plan to get out of the city and hide out in the desert for safety for the time being. But, then the National Guard showed up, and they were corralled back into their home for the foreseeable future.

In Episode 4, “Not Fade Away,” it’s been 9 days since Madison’s neighborhood has been overtaken by the National Guard, who have fenced in and quarantined the residents, and instituted a curfew as well as other rules. The authorities say the neighborhood is 1 of 12 safe zones south of the San Gabriel area, and that everything else outside is dead and gone. Travis’s son, Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie), doesn’t believe everything the survivors are being told, especially since he saw a flashing light outside the fence. Madison watches Chris’s video of what he saw and she sees it too, but for some reason, Travis thinks it’s just his son’s vivid imagination.
