Mo Collins as Sarah Rabinowitz on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead. So I mostly know Mo Collins from the days of MADtv and she was beyond hilarious on that comedy sketch show. If you have never watched it before, try looking up sketches with Stuart and his mom (played by Collins). They will make you cry from laughing so hard.
I was a little surprised when I saw Collins join the cast of Fear TWD, but I have to say that she immediately fit right in and she always keeps the laughs coming, which can really help break up some of the drama and heavy moments on the show. Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.
In season 5 episode 13, we get to see a different side of funny Sarah, as she actually shares some of her regrets about leaving Clayton to die on the side of the road. Sarah may typically laugh everything off, but she takes down her walls in this episode and attempts to redeem her past actions by going back for Logan.
Whether this is the right call or not, it just made me admire Sarah so much more as a character. It’s one thing to say you are sorry about something, but it takes a lot of courage and strength to actually channel that regret into action. Sarah’s decision to go back after Logan could have had some irreparable consequences, but she seemed willing to sacrifice it all to make things right and I think that is truly commendable.
Sarah’s bond with her adoptive brother, Wendell, is also something to be noted and it looks like she is getting closer with Dwight, as the two shared a beer and talked briefly about his quest to find Sherry in a prior episode. Sarah is clearly an integral part of the group, but it was nice to see her stand out in episode 13, truly getting some much deserved screen time.
What’s next for Sarah? We’ll have to wait and see, but she is definitely heading down the right path. Our group is focusing so much on helping others and Sarah is absolutely doing her part. I would personally like to see even more character development for Sarah because she has proven that she is much more than the comic relief.
We all have things we are not proud of, but Sarah is doing her best to live with her past mistakes and I hope she “keeps on trucking” because I think she still has a lot of untapped potential. I can’t wait to see what she does next!
