Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 2, I learned that reputation can proceed someone in a good way or a bad one.
Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.
In season 6 episode 2, “Welcome to the Club,” we check in with Victor and Alicia when Virginia decides to re-assign them to a new job. Meanwhile, old characters return and we learn a little bit more about what Virginia truly cares about.
My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 2 are:
“I didn’t know you were here…”
Well, neither did I, but apparently Daniel is on the compound as well, giving out haircuts. It’s great to see Daniel getting back to his roots, but he seems to have suffered from some severe memory loss.
At first Victor suspects it is an act, but Daniel continues to tell him that he doesn’t know him…
So, is this really an act or is our good friend Daniel hatching a plan of his own?
“It’s time we started making the calls for ourselves.”
Victor has had enough and I can’t say I really blame him after he is stuck shoveling shit all day, but we know that Victor can sometimes get our group into trouble with his bold plans and ambition.
Meanwhile, we meet a new character named Dakota, who turns out to be Virginia’s sister and I have to say that whoever cast her did a great job. Virginia hasn’t really shown too many weaknesses, but this is definitely something our group can work to their advantage.

In the midst of all of this strategy, we also have the dangerous group of walkers dipped in molasses. It won’t be easy clearing them, but if anyone can get rid of them, it’s Alicia and Victor…especially since Alicia gets her weapon back.

My stomach did turn quite a few times after watching the walkers drag their “meals” underneath the door.
“I don’t think we should risk it.”
Alicia proves to be the voice of reason during this episode and tries to talk Victor out of his plan, recognizing that they have the opportunity to turn the tables on Virginia by obtaining the weapon she has hidden beyond the door.

Victor seems hesitant, but he will not do anything to directly put Alicia in harm’s way, as he agrees for now.
“I need to forget who I am.”
After an extremely close call with the out of control walkers, Alicia is able to obtain some guns and Victor tosses his moral compass out the window when he leaves the cowardly Sanjay out to dry. He wounds Sanjay and the walkers feast on him, which gives the group enough time to eliminate them.
Victor explains that it was Sanjay’s decision, choosing not to inform the group about what really happened. This is not the first time we have seen Victor throw his morals away so we’ll have to see where this leads.
Meanwhile, Virginia arrives and we find out that there is no hidden weapon and all she wanted was to see a true leader emerge. She thinks that is Victor and hands him one of the “keys” we have been hearing so much about.
Victor needs to have an army ready for something, but we don’t really know what that is. Rather than cling to the people who mean the most to him, he decides to re-assign Alicia away from him, but he does hand her over the medallion, proving that he does truly care about her well-being.
Is this the right call? Will Victor go over to the dark side? I’m not sure, but it looks like we are splitting up too many characters again, which means we will probably not see Strand for several episodes now.
“Good to see you Morgan.”
At the very end of the episode, Daniel claims he left his scissors behind, which allows someone to whistle to get his attention. Morgan makes quite the entrance with his cowboy hat and takes out a walker in front of Daniel.
Daniel finally drops the act and tells Morgan it is good to see him so I guess my theory was right about these two teaming up to take down Virginia.
So, why did Daniel keep the act up in front of Charlie and the others? Where is Skidmark? I still have more questions, but I’m thinking he wants to keep the act up to protect everyone until the plan is completely ready.
I definitely want to see more of this tag team, but it looks like we will be checking in with Dwight in next week’s episode.
