The show did something that will stay with me. Like Rick, Madison lost her spouse and now her son and was only left with a daughter. It was a forced ending to a not-so-great half season. Questions for Season 3 revolve around whether or not the group is actually captured or rescued. Great new characters were introduced, and we have an interesting Cain and Abel dynamic forming with Troy and Jake. We learn, to our horror, that the soldiers here are killing the prisoners in the name of science, studying how long it takes for each to turn.
I think we are going to see a much more hardened Madison as the season goes on who is willing to do terrible things to protect her people. When such a disclosure does not exist, you can assume that the items have been purchased for review. Fear the Walking Dead starts season three out with a bang. After eight episodes of a story that sprawled out over three states, where the only few remaining characters in those three states apparently kept fortuitously finding each other, I wanted chaos. The secret of Nick killing Otto or, basically, Otto being murdered in general lasted all of half an episode and its reveal felt extremely unnatural. Strengths aside, Fear the Walking Dead still suffered from some sloppy contrivances, namely the show's strain to make things happen, force things into place, that didn't quite fit.
Naomi treats John and discloses her real name is June. Garret Dillahunt and Jenna Elfman were fantastic. Anyone can die at anytime and we don't know what characters have plot armor in this universe yet. None of this makes sense, and this lack of anything at all remotely resembling a logical plot makes the big death at the end even worse. And that was a bitter pill to swallow. Just as Naomi and Morgan are ready to return from the pharmacy, Alicia rips open the door to the tank. .
But his death really pissed me off. The world as we knew it may be over, but that doesn't mean that the next version of the world has to be defined by warring tribal factions. Advertisement The problems with this episode started long before everyone but Morgan drank water tainted with antifreeze. We know that something terrible happened at the stadium, something that Nick, Alicia, Strand, and company survived, but where is Madison and why was Nick so uncharacteristically murderous in the aftermath? Apt viewers also know a survivalist ranch comes into play this season. It works in both cases. This is a rather large subreddit for a rather large media inkwell, there should be plenty of content without having to repost things from two weeks ago.
This will be a great opportunity to hear from Dave Erickson, Fear after season 3. I mentioned this a few times in my reviews back when the season began, but Fear, with its full embracing of the desert landscape and Madison as the central character after Cliff Curtis' Travis was killed off right out of the gate , managed to find itself within the nooks and crannies of the Broke Jaw Ranch arc and the recurring Gonzalez Dam storyline. We saw Althea interviewing Madison when she was apparently split up from her kids before they even found the Diamond. Enough with this mawkish sentimentality. I look forward to a future of John Dorie slapping leather and Althea finding the truth in a world that is broken. Alicia has become one of my favorites, and the fact that she alone was able to sneak a weapon into the compound only cements my admiration for her character. In recent episodes, we were kind of robbed of some drama because we had no idea why Alicia was pursuing June with such a murderous intent.
Is that really so much to ask? The show worked really hard too hard at some points to reunite scattered characters but the biggest coincidence of all, the Broke Jaw arc colliding with the Dam arc in the back half of the season, actually worked. Yet the playing and the relegation to the sidelines of certain classic key Fear characters has made the fourth season a mixed bag of wonderful newness morphed with the same old same old. The bad is some of that conflict deescalates rather quickly. And it hurts, it really does. Okay I need to just stop and rest my brain. The good outweighed the clumsy for the most part and one of the most interesting things about Fear, as a spinoff, is just how the Clarks don't really ever seem to add more people to their ranks. The show is now different.
At least strand is always working an angle. Zapanta is the author of four books. One of the key elements of this season of Fear the Walking Dead has been the patchwork narrative. Nick and Luciana Danay Garcia are trapped in the same place as Travis, and Luciana is in rough shape. What began as a very solid season with great dialogue, interesting cinematography and great new characters ended up crashing and burning as badly as the Diamond itself. Fear's use of the American Southwest and Mexico gave us a very unique look at a zombie outbreak. Before she knew what walkers were, the principal at her school - her friend - attacked a student and she beat him to death.
The episode may have been stronger without that and more being devoted in another, but his short segment does answer some questions that have been left hanging last season. Hey look they just found the baseball diamond right before it fell, or something. Comic spoiler tags are always mandatory on. At the end of season 2, Alicia and Madison Kim Dickens had been reunited with Travis after he parted ways with his son Chris. A lot of criticism has been levied towards the series and this first two episodes feels like it addresses some of them by upping the action and really shaking things up.

This was unavoidable, given that Frank Dillane wanted to move on to other projects. He killed all those zombies in the pit. They hurry back the way they came only to get attacked by their former cellmate. Martha meant that water for anyone needing help. Given how she came into it as someone ready and willing to make extreme choices, without much inner-argument, to protect those she loved, Erickson saw her as someone who could, say, become a Governor-type down the road.
