Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 3, I learned that taking a risk for just a moment may be worth it after all.
Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.
In season 6 episode 3, “Alaska,” Dwight and Al team up to investigate the dead under Virginia’s orders while trying to make a game out of it. Meanwhile, a deadly plague threatens to do damage and a surprise ending leaves us in tears.
My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 3 are:
“Maybe you changed but you’ll still be the man they know.”
In the beginning of the episode, Morgan talks about how he feels like he’s been so many different versions of himself, but he is reminded that he will still be able to help his friends even if he can’t recognize himself.
I thought this was important because Morgan has been wavering in his identity lately and perhaps he needs to just focus on getting them out safely, which defines who he is. It doesn’t matter what weapon he uses. He is still their friend and he will do whatever it takes to bring them to safety.
“People die because shit went wrong.”
It’s Al and Dwight’s turn to get the spotlight during this episode, as we learn that Virginia has them investigating places that have failed. They are supposed to record everything and find out what happened there so it doesn’t happen again.
It’s an interesting strategy, but Al thinks it’s a bunch of bullshit. At least they have a fun game to play, as they begin collecting licenses from all of the dead. They have every state except for one…Alaska.

I have to say that I really loved the friendship between Dwight and Al. Later in the episode, Al talks about her brother and says she didn’t want to lose another one. Dwight has stepped into that brother role for sure and I thought it was authentic and moving.
“You’re not gonna like this.”
So not only do Dwight and Al have to deal with walkers, but we now also have disgusting rats infected with the Bubonic plague. Gross. Dwight and Al have a decision to make, but Al thinks that they need to get out of there because Virginia won’t want to help them.
Only of course Dwight gets infected…
We could sure use Isabelle right about now.
“It’s good to hear your voice.”
Al makes it to the roof and tries to radio over to Isabelle. We know that she has been listening to her channel for quite some time and even tells Dwight about it. Dwight tells her that she has the chance to run away with her, but when Al watches the video Dwight made for her, she realizes that she also needs to do everything in her power to save him.
Al reaches out to the channel and tells the helicopter it is not safe to land. Isabelle warns her to stay off the channel, but also points Al in the right direction. There is a case of beer waiting for her along with the antibiotics needed.
Al tells Isabelle it is good to hear her voice, but it looks like it’s going to be a while before we get to this reunion…speaking of reunions.
“Honey is that you?”
After hearing Al on the channel, we get a female voice who offers to help. Dwight previously had this heartwarming talk with Al where he explains that if he ever did see Sherry again, he would just hold her.
Dwight doesn’t want to get his hopes up, but the voice on the other line is Sherry. We witness this beautiful reunion between the two of them and I have to say it’s about time!

Al witnesses it as well and I thought this was important so she wouldn’t give up hope either.
Overall, I thought this was a really good episode. But it also left us with more questions. Al thinks that the rats were infected intentionally and they run into a similar message on the wall about the end being the beginning so who is this new mysterious threat and how does this fit in with the Virginia angle?

The messages seem to be very biblical as well, which makes me think they want to wipe the slate clean and start the world over, but I’m interested to find out more.
