Spoiler-Free Review of “Ragdoll” on AMC: Killing Eve Style with Potential

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“You’re gonna catch a serial killer…”

Ragdoll originally premiered on AMC+ back in November 2021 but AMC is now airing the six episodes weekly following Killing Eve. The first episode dropped on February 28th 2022. The crime thriller series stars Lucy Hale, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Thalissa Teixeira. Each episode runs for approximately 45-52 minutes.

A game of cat and mouse begins between a troubled cop and a serial killer with a sadistic eye for detail.

Here is the trailer:

Ragdoll has a Killing Eve style that works to its advantage, but is the plot strong enough to keep viewers coming back for more? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Good dynamic between characters.

I love Lucy Hale and she is probably the main reason why I tuned into this one. So far her character seems interesting enough and there is also some really great dark humor between the other main characters, which helps lightens the mood a great deal. The crimes we witness are truly horrifying but I’ve seen a lot of series like this before so I think it’s smart that there are decent character layers and fun banter to keep viewers intrigued.

Stylish visual effects.

The series is brought to us from the same production company that made Killing Eve and that should come as no surprise. I immediately got that type of vibe when I started watching and the network was smart to air these episodes right after Killing Eve to bring in a new audience.

The Cons:

I’ve seen this plot before…

The pacing and plot need some work so far. I think there is enough potential to keep me coming back for more, but there was also a lot of set-up, which slowed down the overall pace for me. I’m confident that things will pick up steam over the six episodes but I don’t want this to fall into the generic crime thriller category because it has a great cast and a dark quality that I really like.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

Lucy Hale is always worth a watch and I think that there is a lot of potential here, but I’m hoping that the plot picks up steam soon so that I don’t lose interest.

Either way, I’d recommend checking it out after Killing Eve if you enjoy crime thrillers.

Checking in on “Killing Eve” Season 4: How will this delightful game of cat and mouse end?

**Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on this series.**

“Let me have a new life…”

Killing Eve season 4 premiered on BBC America and AMC on February 27th 2022. The final season will feature 8 episodes in total that will air weekly. The series stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw and Kim Bodnia.

This deadly and delightful game of cat and mouse has gone on for quite a while between Eve and Villanelle, but what needs to happen in order for it to go out on a high note?

Images courtesy of BBC America

I think it’s safe to say that we have exhausted the cat and mouse routine now. Eve and Villanelle have come face to face many times, leading up to a major cliffhanger on a bridge where we see them collide in life once again.

However, season 4 decides to start things off with a time jump which could be hit or miss. Eve is working for a private security team and Villanelle is trying to find religion so that she can become a good person.

Images courtesy of BBC America

I’ve really loved witnessing the character growth and development of Villanelle over the seasons. We got to explore her back story and really see her try and find her humanity even though she has been a cold-blooded assassin for so long…

And yet, we still find her quest for identity and acceptance endearing. Jodie Comer is as magnificent as ever and I’d watch her in pretty much anything.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Eve has been declining into darkness for quite some time now. I think this show is so interesting because these two powerful characters came together and now have gone in totally opposite directions. Was it because of their encounters or was it because of something else?

I’d like to think that they both still have influence and power over one another even though Eve swears she’s a totally different person now. Sure…

The season premiere was a little slow for me. We got a lot of set-up surrounding their new lives and we also have someone hunting down the Twelve, which has been a major plot-line over the seasons so I’m sure we’ll get answers here.

I’m also curious to find out more about Carolyn’s own journey and where she will end up now as well.

Images courtesy of BBC America

I’m confident that the series will pick up steam as the episodes continue but I’m hoping that the time jump wasn’t a mistake because a lot of other shows have failed with this execution. We get something major that happens and then we decide to show things years or months later before returning to that moment to keep us hooked on the line.

So, how will the series end?

Images courtesy of BBC America

I’m not sure and there are a lot of ways that this can go. I don’t know that we’ll witness a happy ending but I’m hoping it will be satisfying because we have invested a lot of time in these characters and they deserve something truly spectacular.

Either way, I can’t wait to see more of Villanelle!

Stay tuned!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Kevin Can F… Himself” on AMC: Killer Concept

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“I’ve been thinking…”

Kevin Can F Himself premiered on AMC on June 20th 2021 with the first two episodes. The remaining six episodes will air weekly and you can watch them earlier on AMC+. Each episode runs for approximately 42 minutes. The dark comedy show stars Annie Murphy, Eric Petersen, Mary Hollis Inboden and Raymond Lee.

The series mixes genres as it follows a traditional sitcom routine while balancing in some drama and dark comedy. Allison lives in Worcester, Mass. and is married to a complete idiot named Kevin. She starts to break out of her typical housewife role to determine what she really wants for herself…and it may include murdering her husband.

Here is the trailer:

Kevin Can F*** Himself has an amazing and unique premise that allows sitcom wives a chance at redemption, but does the execution of this killer idea fall flat? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of AMC

Allison and Patty rule!

I would expect the women on this show to kick ass and they do so. Annie Murphy is perfection and I am really intrigued by the character of Patty. I think the dynamic between them just works and I really enjoy seeing them on screen together. Even without a lot of set-up, you just automatically root for them and that’s part of what this show is about.

Images courtesy of AMC

The darker parts of the show are pure magic.

I wasn’t really sure what I was going to get with this show. This isn’t the type of show I would normally watch, but I was really intrigued by the trailers and I like Annie Murphy. I think she is a terrific actress. The show is partially a response to the Kevin James sitcom series, Kevin Can Wait, when they decided to kill off the wife without ever properly addressing it on the series.

I haven’t watch that show, but now I kind of want to go back to it and see what actually happened there. This isn’t the first time that a female character has been killed off without any real explanation and I think it’s about time the women have their revenge. The show is layered with several genres, but it works differently than WandaVision, which I absolutely loved!

In WandaVision, I fell in love with the sitcom nostalgia and enjoyed every part of the show, but on Kevin Can F Himself, the sitcom parts are actually really hard to sit through and I think that’s part of the point.

The comedy falls flat and Allison is forced to undergo this living hell…and so are we. It makes her character more sympathetic and when we get into the darker parts, they just work. I loved seeing her research at the library and the ending minutes of the pilot episode were pure perfection for me.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of AMC

The execution is wavering.

The supporting characters are forgettable and annoying and I found myself wanting more of the darker drama rather than the balance between this and the traditional sitcom. I get the point of it, but this is such a unique premise and I don’t want it to be over-complicated. Sometimes less is more.

The pacing also needs some work. I thought that the opening episode was stronger than the second one, but this show dragged a lot and it needs to pick up the pace so it doesn’t lose its audience because this show deserves a watch.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of AMC

I’m in about 75 percent…

I am actually really intrigued by this show and I think that Annie Murphy is putting forth a valiant effort here. The show is creating a necessary dialogue and it’s hard not to root for her. I think that the show needs to find its identity and not lose itself within the magic of the idea. It needs to deliver and I’m hoping that we get there in the next episodes.

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Secrets She Keeps” on AMC: Things are not as they seem…

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“I just can’t get you out of my head…”

The Secrets She Keeps originally premiered on Network 10 in April of 2020 and later was available to stream on Sundance Now. AMC is now airing the series with weekly episodes as of April 19th 2021. The Australian thriller series is set to air six weekly episodes. It stars Laura Carmichael, Jessica De Gouw, Michael Dorman, and Cariba Heine. Each episode runs for approximately 50-55 minutes.

Based on the novel of the same name, the show centers around two pregnant women who meet in a supermarket. After discovering their similarities, we start to piece together the secrets they are both holding as they become entangled in a web of deception.

Here is the trailer:

The Secrets She Keeps is a mystery thriller series that promises to keep you guessing at every turn. As pieces of the puzzle are revealed, we soon discover that nothing is as it seems. The plot is intriguing enough, but does this series do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

The Secrets She Keeps 1

Images courtesy of AMC

A mystery that draws you in.

The show immediately gave me a Single White Female kind of vibe and I loved that. Both women have past scars and secrets, but they also seem to be hiding a lot. Agatha clearly has some sort of obsession with Meghan and envies her life, but as we start to learn more about Agatha’s own past, things aren’t so clear cut, which makes this mystery that much more layered and intriguing to me.

Great acting.

Both of the female leads are fantastic and I actually really like both of their characters. They are believable and really embodied the real life fears and doubts of women everywhere. Pregnancy can be scary enough and they are also tackling so many other things, which makes this chance encounter between the two of them that much more important. I can’t wait to find out more!

The Cons:

The Secrets She Keeps 2

Images courtesy of AMC

Somewhat predictable.

I predicted some of the initial reveals, but I think that as the series progresses, it will keep me guessing. It’s hard to keep that suspense going and I think the series is doing a good job of bringing us back for more, but I hope it doesn’t lean too heavily on obvious reveals.

I’m keeping an open mind!

So am I in or out?

The Secrets She Keeps 3

Images courtesy of AMC

I’m in!

The Secrets She Keeps is exactly the kind of thriller I enjoy. It may be borderline Lifetime-esque, but it has enough going on to keep me coming back for more. I’m confident that the reveals will become harder to guess as the episodes progress and I’m excited to watch the remaining episodes to see this plot unfold!

If you enjoy shows like Who Killed Sara? and The Stranger, you will feel right at home with this series and I’m really excited it is finally airing in the United States!

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on The Secrets She Keeps in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Checking in on “Fear the Walking Dead” Season 6: Game Changer

Happy Wednesday TV Fans! When we last checked in on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, Virginia was still running things while Morgan started to gather his people at his new potential home.

I’ve been waiting for Fear TWD to find its edge again. That raw intense one it had in the very beginning of the series. After several seasons of singing kumbaya without any major character deaths, I was beginning to lose hope.

And then season 6, episode 8 aired which was a complete game changer for the series.

**Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

In season 6, episode 8, we check in on John Dorie, who has really lost his will to live. He contemplates taking his own life, but Morgan and Dakota show up to try and get him to come with them.

Morgan was in a very similar situation a while back and John Dorie was the one to give him the motivation to live again so Morgan tries to do the same for his friend.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 8 3

Although John Dorie was introduced later in the series, he quickly became a fan favorite. He always saw the good in people and refused to change his moral compass even though the world has changed, which can be a good thing and a bad thing.

His relationship with June was one of the most beautiful ones I have ever witnessed on a show and there is an authentic and real quality to their marriage. It is far from perfect and both of them have run away from their mistakes before, but they always find a way back to each other.

As we fast forward through the episode, John agrees to help Morgan and Dakota clear the bridge but he wants to be left in peace after that. Morgan takes matters into his own hands and radios to Virginia where John is so that he doesn’t have a choice, explaining that he is not going to sit by and let his best friend die.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 8 1

After a few close calls with the horde, it looked like we were right back where we started again and then Dakota decided to show her true colors.

John sees the knife that Dakota uses on a walker and realizes that she was the one who killed Cameron. Dakota explains that he ruined her way out and now she needs to continue to keep her secret…

After John puts away his own weapon, Dakota shoots John in the chest and pushes him over the bridge.

We get this incredible moment where John is drifting to the bottom of the water but sees the photo of him and his dad and it is enough to motivate him to make it to the surface.

Morgan confronts Dakota and we find out that she was the one who initially saved Morgan’s life because she thinks that he is the only one who can actually kill her sister.

Morgan radios over to Virginia and tells them to look for John in the water and that he might need help and of course poor June is there.

June discovers John in the water and he has already turned. In a heart shattering moment, she stabs him in the head, which really had my emotions stirring.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 8 2

While this is an incredibly heartbreaking moment, this needed to happen.

We needed a major character death to remind us that this is a show about the zombie apocalypse. While I appreciate the messages of hope, there has to be something that truly motivates the rest of the group to stand up against Virginia and this is it.

When you think about the other characters on the show, it had to be John to go. He was the representation of all that is good in the world and when he changed his mind about ending his life, this death became that much more tragic to me.

I also think that Dakota showing her true colors is a game changer. I was honestly getting tired of the Virginia plot and Dakota may be an even more dangerous threat. She’s clearly a sociopath and it goes to show us how dangerous children can be growing up in this world.

Look at Lydia in TWD. She grew up with a monstrous mother and still managed to turn things around, but she could have easily fallen off the deep end. Dakota is the other end of the spectrum and I am really intrigued by this plot and I have to give it to the writers who really made this twist and reveal work in their favor.

As long as Fear TWD continues on this new path, they will be able to reclaim those moments of sheer perfection I witnessed earlier in the series.

Keep it going, Fear TWD! I can’t wait to see what happens now!

Checking in on “The Walking Dead” Season 10: Who are the Reapers?

Happy Wednesday TV Fans! When we last checked in on AMC’s The Walking Dead, the Whisperers were defeated and Maggie returned. But now that she is back, has she brought a new threat along with her?

**Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

A lot has happened in season 10 and with the extended season, we will be getting six bonus episodes before we approach the final season of the show. A lot can happen in six episodes and we have a lot of characters to catch up with.

First up is Maggie. Welcome home! Maggie returns and I am actually very happy to see her. With Michonne’s exit last year, we needed a fan favorite to return and I think that Maggie can help remind us why we started to love this show in the first place.

TWD season 10 Maggie

We get a lot of drama in the beginning of the episode and I started seeing polls on Twitter about whether or not Maggie should forgive Negan. Negan brutally killed her husband in front of her. We can’t expect her to forgive him even though he saved the group against the Whisperers with his actions.

Carol tries to explain her reasons for letting Negan out and Maggie appreciates her honesty, but I don’t think that Negan should get too close to her. Alexandria isn’t big enough for the both of them so we’ll have to see how this plays out and we know that Negan tends to form friendships with some of the children in the group so I’m curious to see if he will approach Hershel or not.

Meanwhile, Daryl and Maggie head back to their camp and learn that it is has been burned to the ground and their people are either dead or missing. Maggie is very worried about Hershel and we come face-to-face with a Reaper threat. These scenes were actually pretty chilling and the Reaper they catch decides to blow himself up rather than come clean about who he is and what his people want.

TWD season 10

That leaves us with a lot of questions about this new group, but I’m not sure how much we will focus on them in the bonus episodes since there are a lot of other characters to follow up with.

Speaking of that, I am so happy that Kelly got some well deserved screen time in this episode. She and Maggie actually have a nice heart-to-heart talk and Kelly is extremely worried about Connie. Honestly, I am just waiting to see this reunion between her and Connie and I really want to see Daryl’s reaction.

TWD season 10 Kelly

Let’s also talk about how adorable Hershel is and how he even wears a baseball cap like his father. It’s clear that he can already take care of himself when Maggie later finds him hiding in a tree when the Reapers were attacking.

TWD season 10 Hershel

Images courtesy of AMC

It looks like in next week’s episode we will focus more on Daryl and we will even get to see Dog. It honestly makes me nervous every time we see Dog because I don’t want anything to happen to him, but I’ll try to stay positive.

I really hope that Daryl can find Connie during these bonus episodes and we don’t have to wait until season 11 but I’m not sure. We also need to check back in with Eugene’s group as well and see what’s going on there with the mysterious Stephanie.

Is there a connection between Stephanie and the Reapers or are these two separate groups?

We’ll have to wait and see what happens. Let’s hope that these bonus episodes provide a lot more than fluff because I need the action to outweigh the drama to keep me invested.

Either way, I’m anxious to find out what happens next!

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on TWD in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 7: “Damage From the Inside”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 7 mid-season finale, I started to remember why I used to love this show in the first place. 

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In season 6 episode 7, “Damage From the Inside,” Victor asks for Alicia’s help after Dakota goes missing. Meanwhile, Alicia encounters a cringe-worthy horror of her own.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 7 are:

5

“Now’s the time to do something.”

I think Dakota might be on to something here. Seriously…do anything! I’ve been sitting around waiting for something to happen on Fear TWD, but we are jumping around too much to catch up with characters in each episode and it is really slowing down the pace of this show.

Victor warns Dakota against acting too quickly and I have to wonder what his true plan is. I’m not even sure if we can really trust him anymore even though he cares for Alicia and the others.

4

“You’re the only one that can help me.”

Finally! Let’s reach out to Alicia for help. Good plan, Victor! It’s been quite some time since we have checked in with our girl Alicia and I have been waiting for her to do something truly spectacular.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 7 2

Well, after the convoy is attacked, Dakota goes missing and Victor recognizes that he needs to get her back before Virginia realizes what is going on. Alicia is the right one for the job, but she is clearly still pissed at Victor for sending her away.

That being said, an Alicia-centric episode is exactly what we need right now!

3

“I think this is one big misunderstanding.”

Really? Sure, let’s just make these crazy monster walkers for the fun of it…

While looking for Dakota, Alicia stumbles upon a cabin tucked away from everything with Charlie. Alicia goes in alone and I loved the horror vibes going on here. Can we get Alycia Debnam-Carey in a horror movie asap? Seriously, she has so much final girl potential and then some!

Fear TWD season 6 episode 7 Alycia Debnam-Carey

Alicia spies on a man who is performing some kind of weird experiments on walkers, but is injected with something before she can get out of there. When she wakes up, she is restrained, but our clever girl is able to get out of any situation.

We learn that Dakota is there and wants to stay there, but I’m not sure that this stranger can really be trusted…

We get some retro music going on and a game of chess, but appearances can be deceiving…watch out, Alicia!

2

“Do we have a deal?”

Alicia recognizes an opportunity here and decides to secretly radio over to Virginia. She tells her about Dakota and promises her that she can bring her back safely, but she wants to be able to go free with Charlie.

Virginia accepts, but is Alicia really going to be able to turn Dakota over to her cold-hearted sister?

1

“I will do whatever it takes.”

Our new stranger decides to summon his “creations” and Alicia is forced to take drastic measures to protect them. Our stranger ends up on the wrong side of the stick and doesn’t last too long when his creations come in to feast on him.

Alicia, Charlie, and Dakota are surrounded, but luckily Morgan makes quite the entrance to help them out.

How does he always have the best timing?

Fear TWD season 6 episode 7

Images courtesy of AMC

Alicia is shocked to see him and listens to his plan, but does not like it when he says that he is going to trade Dakota to get everyone else back. We also learn that he was the one who attacked the convoy. Alicia understands that Dakota is an innocent in all of this and wants to help her.

We get more issues when Victor gets involved and shows his true colors…or so we think.

Alicia heads off with Dakota, Charlie, and Morgan while Victor pledges his loyalty to Virgnia.

This gives him the chance to see what she has been hiding and we learn that Grace is being kept there. It’s safe to say that she is going to use Grace to draw Morgan out, but we’ll have to see how this unfolds when the second half of the season releases in 2021.

I thought that this episode wasn’t bad and I loved some of the twisted horror elements, but Fear TWD needs to take a step back and realize that it is skipping around way too much between its characters.

After watching this episode, I realized how much I have missed seeing Alicia and this show needs to use its strengths moving forward if it wants to continue to entertain us.

Don’t let me down! See you in 2021 Fear TWD fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 6: “Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 6, I learned that some things don’t really matter “as long as it gets us to the same place in the end.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In season 6 episode 6, “Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg,” June has a new crisis to deal with at the mine. Meanwhile, our new mystery threat continues to spray-paint their way closer and closer to Virginia.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 6 are:

5

“I told you my job was to keep you safe.”

Have you been wondering where the hell Sarah has been? Me too! Well, she gets some well deserved screen time in this episode and she is putting her truck driving skills aside to help June with whatever medical crisis is thrown their way.

After losing a patient, June continues to try and resuscitate him, creating a close call for her and Sarah. Sarah reminds her that her main job is to keep June safe, but she certainly gave us some much needed laughs throughout the episode.

It’s about time!

4

“I can’t stay here.”

John continues to struggle with what happened to Janice and tells June that he can’t stay there any longer. He wants to create a plan to get out of there, but June still thinks there is good to be done.

I think John has really lost his way and I was hoping that June would snap him out of it, but I’m not so sure anymore…

3

“I’m gonna help these people.”

Luciana shows up in this episode as well, but we are right in the middle of some kind of explosion at the mine. We quickly discover that this was not an accident and it looks like our new mystery group is behind it based on the spray-painting left behind. We also know that apparently they would rather die than say anything…so there’s that.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6 Luciana

June recognizes that she needs to do everything she can to save as many people as possible, but no one said this would be easy.

Either way, you gotta admire her spirit. Wes is in pretty bad shape, but it looks like he may make it out of this one for now, but his own spray-painting habits may get him into trouble moving forward.

2

“You may not like me, but you need me.”

So, I was initially really proud of June when a walker took a chunk out of Virginia’s hand. Virginia demands that June take her hand off, recognizing her fate, but June tells her no. Virginia talks her out of it; however, and tells her she will give her whatever she wants.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6

Of course, June wants a hospital and agrees to slice and dice Virginia’s hand clean off, but was this really a smart move?

I don’t think so and I’m not sure that anyone else does…

“I don’t want to run anymore.”

At the end of the episode, June is ready to stay where she is, recognizing the good she can still do. John tries to warn her that he fell into the same trap, but I think this decision might split these two up for a while.

June can’t see things the way they really are and while I appreciate all the good she is doing, she also has to realize that Virginia is essentially pulling her strings.

At least Wendell is back. Yay!

I’m not sure how I felt about this episode overall, but I’m anxious to see something major happen during the mid-season finale next week. I want Fear TWD to find its raw roots again and abandon the tired fluff once and for all.

Can it achieve this? I think so and I’ve seen glimmers of it this season, but we need to witness something epic next week for sure.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 5: “Honey”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 5, I learned that everyone is fighting for something, but when that happens, “somebody’s gotta lose.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In season 6 episode 5, “Honey,” Dwight and Sherry’s reunion is quickly interrupted by masked intruders. Meanwhile, Morgan attempts to convince the others to join his fight to form a new community.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 5 are:

5

“I don’t want you to get mixed up in this.”

In the beginning of the episode, we witness a reunion between Dwight and Sherry. They have finally found each other after all this time, but they realize that they need to figure out something in order to be together.

Dwight doesn’t want Sherry to get mixed up in with Virginia’s group, which complicates things for sure. Either way, I was happy to witness some happiness between these two…even if it was short-lived.

4

“Who the hell are these people?”

I was asking myself the same question, Dwight! Right after our reunion between Dwight and Sherry, a masked stranger breaks in, which instantly made me feel like I had changed the channel to an invasion horror film…not that I’m complaining.

We quickly learn that Sherry is actually with these masked strangers and they supposedly saved her life. They all have been wronged by Virginia and want revenge, but can they really be trusted?

3

“You steal it…”

First an invasion film and now a heist…

Either way, it gave us a lot of action as Al tells them that they will not be able to destroy Virginia’s tank. She does know it better than anyone else.

We witness an adrenaline filled scene with the group overtaking the tank and Al had me nervous quite a few times on top of that roof. Be careful, girl!

2

“You lose something?”

After the tank driver saw Dwight’s face, Al worries that he will run straight to Virginia, but luckily Morgan shows up with perfect timing to save the day.

Dwight and Al are surprised to see him, but Morgan is ready to get right down to business. He reveals his plan and says that they can find everyone, but this is easier said than done…especially since the masked riders have a plan of their own.

This causes a clash between Dwight and Morgan and we see some of the old Dwight flare up again during this episode. His moral compass wavers quite a bit, but we also know that he will do everything in his power to keep Sherry safe…

1

“I won’t let you become the person you used to be…”

At the end of the episode, Dwight and Sherry decide to go through with the plan, but Sherry shuts Dwight out, claiming she wants to stop him from becoming who he used to be.

Only Dwight doesn’t want that for Sherry either and intervenes with her plan. Dwight finally sees what Morgan and Al were talking about and realizes that it is too soon to try and take Virginia out.

Sherry ends up listening to Dwight, but there is a major cost. They decide to part ways only after being reunited for a little over a week, but it looks like Dwight is going to get his moment to start over fresh.

He and Al fake their deaths so that they can help Morgan, but Dwight makes it a point to free the wild dog from the masked stranger camp before he goes, which I thought was so representative of his own inner struggle.

Sometimes circumstances can shape us into who we are, but we have a choice and if a better path presents itself, it’s up to us to embrace it to start over again.

Now on to our next set of characters…seriously I’m losing track over here.

We’ll have to wait to find out more. Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 4: “The Key”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 4, I learned that “a place is only as safe as people feel it is.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In season 6 episode 4, “The Key,” John Dorie adjusts to his new life as a ranger, but quickly clashes with Virginia after he has his very own murder mystery to solve. Meanwhile, Morgan has an encounter with two strangers who are after the mysterious key he obtained.

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 4 are:

5

“Dear June…”

In the beginning of the episode, we open up to John narrating, as we hear some of his love letters to June. This divide is clearly hard on both of them, but I thought it was sweet that he was trying to keep the line of communication open.

This is not the first time we have seen these two love birds separated, but let’s hope they are able to reunite sooner than later.

4

“You can’t help me even if I do.”

After John discovers that Cameron is dead on the barbed wire fence, he suspects foul play, giving him an investigation to look into.

He finds an earring at the crime scene and shares some of his suspicions with Virginia, but she reminds him not to stir up trouble. Virginia wants to maintain the illusion of “safety” no matter what in her community and we’re about to find out how far she will go to keep this image going.

Janis tries to leave the community and the earring is found in her backpack. Janis tells John that Virginia planted it there, but things aren’t looking too good for Janis…

3

“If you go down this path there’s no going back.”

Victor shows up and tries to get John to see reason. John wants to do what is right and is even willing to risk never seeing June again to help Janis live. John has always had this admirable moral code, but we are living in a different world now and Victor is going to do whatever it takes to maintain “the peace.”

While Victor’s motives cannot always be trusted, it does appear that he is trying to look out for John Dorie’s best interest, but we know that Victor has kicked other innocents to the curb for his own agenda before.

2

“You killed her!”

After discovering that poor Janis has been basically executed by walkers, he blames Victor and the two of them even fight over it. John is feeling defeated, but he receives a key of his very own from Virginia.

The key isn’t the only reward as June also knocks on the door and tells him that she has been transferred.

John is happy to see her, but there is also this tragic moment where John removes his rotten tooth. He looks in the mirror and accepts his new fate, but I think that John is feeling a lot of remorse about what happened to Janis. 

1

“What the hell do you unlock?”

I’m wondering the same thing, Morgan. At the very end of the episode, a car crashes into Morgan’s vehicle. Morgan and his new dog are all right, but the two strangers are looking for one thing…the key that Morgan obtained from the previous bounty hunter.

Morgan takes them both out and gave us pretty much the only action scene in the entire episode, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding this key.

The strangers don’t know who Virginia is so it’s safe to say that this key has nothing to do with her. 

We’ll have to wait to find out more. Stay tuned!
