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.

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.

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…

1

“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.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 4 2

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.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 4 1

Images courtesy of AMC

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 3: “Alaska”

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:

5

“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.

4

“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.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 3 Al and Dwight AMC

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.

3

“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.

2

“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.

1

“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.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 2: “Welcome to the Club”

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:

5

“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?

4

“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.

Fear TWD 6 2 3

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.

Fear TWD 6 1 1

My stomach did turn quite a few times after watching the walkers drag their “meals” underneath the door.

Gross!

3

“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.

Fear TWD 6 2 4

Images courtesy of AMC

Victor seems hesitant, but he will not do anything to directly put Alicia in harm’s way, as he agrees for now.

2

“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.

1

“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.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 6 episode 1: “The End Is the Beginning”

Happy Tuesday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 1 season premiere, I really had only one question on my mind: “Is Mr. Jones dead or alive?”

Fear TWD season 6 episode 1 1

Images courtesy of AMC

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

In season 6 episode 1, “The End Is the Beginning,” we confirm Morgan’s fate, but he’s not out of the woods just yet. New characters and threats emerge, as Morgan finds himself conflicted over his beliefs, but will he survive?

My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 1 are:

5

“I’ve never seen them walk away from a meal.”

Enter Isaac, who seems to have perfect timing, as he helps save Morgan’s life. Isaac says that he is a former Marine and he also has some medical training, as he takes a look at Morgan’s condition.

Morgan still has the bullet inside him and the smell of gangrene is keeping the walkers away for now, which could come in handy.

But can we really trust a new stranger? At least we know Morgan is alive…for now. Phew!

4

“Is there something you’re not telling me?”

Surviving his bullet wound is not the only thing Morgan has to worry about as Virginia hires a bounty hunter named Josiah who is not afraid to take someone’s head with one swing of his axe. He keeps the heads in labeled boxes and delivers them with pride while his hound helps sniff out his bounty.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 1 2

Morgan recognizes that Isaac’s timing is odd and he also seems to know a lot about him. Isaac explains that he used to work for Virginia’s team but Morgan’s tapes taught him that there was a better way. His main priority is to get back to his pregnant wife so he can help deliver their baby safely, but Morgan is keeping his guard up for sure.

3

“I’m right here.”

Morgan agrees to help Isaac reach his wife as they travel to a dried up lake, which might make a potential safe haven for his friends. Since the walkers can’t sense him, he decides to go through the crowd alone, but things don’t go according to plan as Isaac starts taking out walkers to help.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 1 4

Images courtesy of AMC

Morgan can easily turn around and keep walking, but he decides to shout out to the walkers that he’s right here, as the two make a pretty impressive tag team.

2

“I can’t be who they need me to be.”

Morgan and Isaac are able to reach their destination, but we learn that Isaac has been bitten, which means he is already dead. He explains that all he needed to do was get Morgan where he needed to be, but Morgan is still having doubts about his purpose after everything he has been through.

Josiah shows up with bad timing and we get this intense face-off between him and Morgan. Morgan is able to defeat him, but Josiah taunts him and tells him that he knows he doesn’t have it in him to end his life.

Well, so much for that, as Morgan takes Josiah’s head in one swift motion, sending his head on out to Virginia. Morgan also picks up the key that Josiah retrieved from his last bounty and there is a lot of mystery surrounding it already.

1

“Morgan Jones is dead and you are dealing with somebody else now.”

Virginia’s reaction is pretty interesting when she discovers Josiah’s head in Morgan’s box. She seems up for the challenge, but her threats don’t really seem to impact Morgan.

Isaac was able to successfully remove the bullet in Morgan’s chest before he passed, but it looks like Morgan is embracing a new identity now. I have to also mention that it was incredibly sweet that they named the baby after Morgan!

Fear TWD season 6 episode 1 5

Images courtesy of AMC

He abandons his staff and picks up Josiah’s axe instead, wearing the cowboy hat as well which gave me some bad-ass Rick Grimes vibes.

It looks like Morgan is going to go recruit some help to get his friends out of there and I have a feeling we will witness a tag team with him and Daniel…

Now that we know Morgan is all right, what about our other characters? It looks like we will catch up with them all soon and I am hoping that we abandon some of the fluff that took up the majority of the last two seasons and get back to the raw, wild vibe from the earlier seasons.

I think we have the potential to get there.

We don’t know who saved Morgan’s life initially or what is going on with these keys. We also don’t know who the men are spray painting the wall so it looks like we have quite a bit of set-up to keep us busy for a while.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 15: “That’s a Bitter Sweet Thing”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 15, I realized that life is short and “if there’s things to say…you should say them.”  There’s never really a right time and we may regret it for the rest of our lives if we don’t share these feelings.  However, if we do share these inner thoughts or feelings, does it just ultimately make things harder in the end?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Channel 5,” the group decides to challenge Virginia with…another documentary.  Meanwhile, Grace’s health continues to deteriorate, John and June contemplate moving up their wedding date, and Wes seems interested in painting with Alicia.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 15 are:

5

“This is the truth.”

In the beginning of the episode, we watch Virginia’s documentary, which seems a little bit too good to be true…even more so than our group’s initial documentary.  We learn that members of Virginia’s group wear keys on their shirts because “each one of us holds the key to the future,” but it’s clear that Virginia is actually only interested in people who she considers to be “useful” to her cause, but where does that leave everyone else? 

Al is infuriated by this and wants to get the real truth out there.  Morgan reminds her that they are going about things the right way, but that doesn’t mean that the right way will win in the end.

4

“Everybody is useful.”

Tom is beyond thrilled to be reunited with his sister, Janice, who happens to be the girl Wes saved.  What a small world!  I need to give a shout out to my good friend, Luke on QuizUp, who predicted this last week.  Nice job, Luke! 

Tom is excited about the mission and really wants to get the story out there, as we are presented with another documentary style episode, which was kind of underwhelming for me.  Luckily, we do get a little bit of action later in the episode, but we are at the end of the season and I’m starting to wonder what is going to happen to shake things up?

3

“That’s a bitter sweet thing…”

It looks like I’m not the only one shipping Morgan and Grace, as John decides to ask if anything is going on between them during the documentary.  John recognizes that it will be difficult for Morgan and Grace either way and asks June how she feels about moving up their wedding date.

June seems to be on board and it looks like we will be able to put Rabbi Jacob to work as well.  I love John and June together, but they may need to put things on hold now that Virginia is in the mix.

2

“I just want to be around long enough to see it.”

Grace is still holding on, but it doesn’t look like she is doing too well, as the group tries to go on a detour to get her more fluids.  Morgan attempts to tell Grace how he feels, but she ultimately stops him and explains that it will be too difficult.  While I want some kind of happiness for Morgan and Grace, I completely understand where she is coming from.

It just seems so unfair that Morgan has finally lifted the guard around his heart and now has to watch Grace die unless there is some miracle waiting for them in the near future.  Fingers crossed!

1

“You call her, there’s no coming back.”

Toward the end of the episode, we deal with a bridge of our very own and Tom decides to do anything for the story, which includes going down with the bridge.  Sorry Tom!  Al is beyond upset, but somehow manages to have the tape?  I’m not too sure about that, but the group decides to keep going. 

Unfortunately Humbug’s Gulch is overrun by walkers and the group is forced to ultimately make that call over to Channel 5 to ask for Virginia’s help.  It looks like Virginia got what she wanted, but what does this mean for our group now? 

Overall, I was slightly disappointed and underwhelmed with the episode.  We already tried out the documentary style in a previous episode and I’m not sure that we needed another one now.  I’ve been waiting for some kind of substantial character death and instead, we get Tom losing his common sense on the bridge.

Alicia and Wes seem to be hitting it off, but she is so focused on painting and I want the beast within her to be unleashed again because once she gets going, she is unstoppable!  Poor Luciana is off serving Virginia at the oil field and while Virginia seems like an interesting foe, I’m not sure that we can salvage things in one episode, but I’m remaining hopeful.

What would YOU like to see happen on the season finale?  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 14: “I’d Like to See that Smile Again”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 14, I realized that “the future’s a lot easier to get to if you’re not doing it on your own.”  But what if you focus so much on the future that you sacrifice the present?  And what about when we finally overcome what is troubling us from our past?  Is it too late to cherish in some happiness during our present?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “Today and Tomorrow,” we catch up with Morgan and Al, as they try to help a stranger named Tom.  Meanwhile, Daniel and Grace open up to one another and put on a show-stopping number.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 14 are:

5

“All they cared about was the future…”

In this episode, we check in with Morgan and Al, who come across a man named Tom in need of some help.  The horseback riders are trying to find him and Morgan and Al hide out with him in a van until they can come up with a suitable game plan.  We learn that Tom was with his sister at Paradise Ridge, a co-op complex, but a group came to take it over, claiming that they just wanted to help as well.

Tom explains that all they cared about was the future, which triggers something within Al, as she remembers Isabelle telling her the same thing: “It’s not about today, it’s about tomorrow.”  Al explains to Morgan that it’s not about the story for her and it’s clear that she desperately wants to see Isabelle again, hoping that this is somehow a connection.

4

“I trusted you with a lot.”

Morgan recognizes that Al is keeping something from him and reminds her that he has trusted her with a lot.  Al agrees, but also asks Morgan why he left the compound and tells him that he’s running from something.  Morgan has been running away from his developing feelings for Grace and perhaps Al’s decision to run toward a chance at seeing Isabelle will spark something within him, but is it too late for both of them?

3

“For a long time, he was all I had.”

We also take some time to catch up with Daniel and Grace during this episode.  Even though Skidmark spends most of his time in a crate, Daniel opens up to Grace and tells her that Skidmark was all he had for a long time.  He tells her that Charlie changed everything for him, which was incredibly heartwarming.  Daniel lost his daughter, but I think he sees himself as a father figure to Charlie and I thought it was so sweet that he wanted to bring back some records for her.

Grace also takes this opportunity to confide in Daniel and tells him that she tried so hard to help Morgan.  Daniel reminds Grace that she did get Morgan to smile and says that he thinks she did make a difference with him.

2

“You two sure know how to make an entrance.”

Thankfully we get some action, as Morgan and Al run into some trouble at the co-op complex and wind up going for a dip in the pool with a persistent walker.  They are able to eliminate the threat, but are then surrounded by Virginia and her gang.  Virginia fills them in on what she is trying to accomplish without revealing too many details, but she does give us an interesting food analogy with spaghetti.

Al asks her about the helicopters and Virginia tells her that they don’t have any, which means that Isabelle and her group are not connected to Virginia, so there goes that theory.  Surprisingly, Virginia lets them head off and even gives Morgan a new stick, but what is her end goal here?  She says her door is always open, but what happens when they actually accept her offer?  I’m interested to find out for sure.

1

“I’d like to see that smile again…”

At the end of the episode, Morgan comes to the realization that he doesn’t need to record the tapes anymore about his family.  He wants to talk to Grace now and in the present, but Grace’s health takes a dramatic turn for the worse after she and Daniel perform on stage.  Morgan tells Grace that he is going to get to her in time and Grace tries to hold on to the hope that she will see him again.

It looks like we will see Grace in next week’s episode, as her health continues to deteriorate, but is there any way to save her?  Now that Morgan is finally willing to open his heart in the present, I will be completely devastated if these two don’t get a chance to be together, but I know someone has to die… Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 9/14/19 on TV goes to…

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!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 13: “Hard to get Bigger than That”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 13, I realized that “together we can get from yesterday to tomorrow,” but what happens when that concept of togetherness starts to break off into separate pieces?  Sometimes we are forced to stand alone in order to protect what we believe in, but is it truly possible to keep that sense of togetherness going when there is always something or someone threatening its potential?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Leave What You Don’t,” we get a glimpse into Logan’s past, while Sarah tries to make things right in the present.  Meanwhile, Alicia and Victor attempt to help a girl in need and end up getting some unexpected assistance.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 13 are:

5

“Maybe you’ll actually remember what you used to believe.”

In this episode, we learn a little bit more about Logan and take a peek into his past.  We witness Logan as “Desert Fox” trying to reach Clayton (Polar Bear) when a young woman asks for help at a truck stop by mile marker 65.  Clayton doesn’t respond and Logan does his best to make it there in time, but his truck runs out of gas.  Logan goes the rest of the way on foot and tries to keep the woman over the Walkie hopeful, but he is forced to listen to her get torn apart by walkers and is too late. 

Logan is devastated and it’s clear that this is the moment that broke his vision about helping others.  When Logan tries to take over the oil field in the present, he tells Luciana that he does remember, but that it’s all about survival of the fittest now.  I thought this glimpse into Logan’s past was necessary, but we still didn’t get a concrete answer on what his new vision is now, telling Luciana and the others that they wouldn’t be able to handle it and now I’m not sure we’ll ever know…

4

“What’s the point of having gas if we can’t use it to help people?”

A valid point for sure, Alicia, but I have to say that Alicia is getting quite good at painting those trees and I happen to like the phoenix design as well!  Alicia and Victor get a call over the radio from a woman trapped in a truck stop.  When they try to reach out to some of their friends, it seems like everyone is off doing their own thing, which means we probably have some more filler episodes coming our way to fill in those blanks…except we are getting pretty close to the end of the season.

Either way, Alicia and Victor try to make it in time, but will they be able to save her?

3

“I figured I should pay it forward.”

After Alicia and Victor run out of gas, it looks like the girl at the truck stop is not going to make it, but luckily Wes is there to save the day!  Yay!  Remember Wes?

Well it looks like Alicia had an impact over him after all, as he hears the call over the radio and tries to do his part.  Oh and he likes the phoenix too so it looks like there may be some sparks flying between him and Alicia. 

I was really interested in Wes’s character when we first met him and I’m happy that he had a change of heart.  I’m looking forward to finding out more about him and it looks like the kindness of the group is spreading, but is it enough?

2

“We help people.  They help people.  Hard to get bigger than that.”

So I’ve been a fan of Sarah for a while now and she is always the one to break the tension with some humor, but she really showed us a different side in this episode and I thought it was really important for her character development.  Logan reminded Sarah that she was the reason why this all happened because she left Clayton to die when she stole his truck and that’s why he never answered Logan on the radio.

Sarah explains that she thinks about that every single day and she truly tries to make amends when she goes back to save Logan when the walkers start crashing the party, literally falling right into the oil fields one by one.  While I love Sarah’s humor, I really enjoyed seeing this other side of her and it honestly made me like her that much more.

1

“That sounds like a deal to me…”

Everything comes full circle for Logan when he realizes that the girl Alicia is trying to help is also at the truck stop at mile marker 65 and he thinks that the only answer is for her to use the one bullet left in his gun to end it all.  When Wes shows up to save her, Logan has a change of heart and I was starting to think that everyone was going to start singing Kumbaya or something.  Fear not; however, as we do get a necessary twist. 

Logan tells his people to put his guns down, but he gets shot and killed, along with the rest of his followers.  We meet a new group, the Pioneers, led by a woman named Virgina…although apparently you can call her Ginny.  Logan encountered these ladies on horseback in his past, but they show up with perfect timing to shake things up.  Virginia explains that Logan was no longer essential and says that she has been paying attention to what our group has been doing, revealing that she thinks they can help each other. 

Before things get too crazy, Luciana volunteers as tribute and offers to stay behind to make the gas for them.  So who are the Pioneers?

I’m not really sure what to make of this new group of villains just yet, but it’s about time something happened.  What are YOUR theories on this new group?  Stay tuned!
