Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 4 episode 15: “Jimbo’s Beerbos”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 15, I realized that even though we may want to handle things ourselves, it’s OK to ask for help sometimes.  While we may be able to survive on our own, we can’t truly live without the love and support of those around us.  That’s what it means to have a family.  You’re there for one another through the good times and the bad and through the joy and the sorrow.  It’s never too late to do the right thing, even if you were once considered a “Class A Asshole.”  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “I Lose People…” Morgan and the others try to figure out a way to get off the rooftop to safety and are determined to find Al.  Meanwhile, Alicia and Charlie attempt to save John and Victor and end up crossing paths with Martha on the way.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 15 are:

5

“Poetry in a bottle.  That’s you too.”

In the beginning of the episode, Morgan is desperately trying to figure out a way off the rooftop.  While he tries to figure this all out, Jim takes his frustration out on his situation by urinating on the walkers below, explaining that it’s “the only FU I got here.”  Even though Jim knows he has a death sentence, he still insists on blaming Morgan for everything.  Morgan tries to explain to Jim that he can decide how he goes and that he can still help and make a difference, but Jim is not on board.  Sarah asks Jim for the recipe to his beer, explaining that it’s “poetry in a bottle.  That’s you too.  That can live on.”  While Sarah is absolutely right, Jim is not ready to accept this just yet and initially declines giving her the recipe, earning his deserving new title:  “Class A Asshole.”  While I can understand why Jim has a lot of mixed emotions swirling around inside him right now, he has the chance to do some real good in his final moments, but will he continue to waste them complaining about his circumstances?

4

“Find my goddamn tapes and keep them safe.”

Morgan and the others try to go back the way they came, looking for Al by the generator and Sarah finds a note from her.  The group learns that Al’s Walkie died and that she is headed for the freight elevator to find a way out.  Al asks the group to find her tapes and keep them safe.  She also reminds them that “if you find that C word, settle her shit.”  Sarah hilariously adds “she didn’t use the C word.  She went for the full quesadilla.”  While we have yet to see Al, it is safe to assume that she is alive especially since we see her in the preview for the season finale next week.  However, we know that some of our main characters appeared in flashbacks and other episodes even after they had died so no one is really that safe on Fear TWD.  Either way, I am rooting for Al and I want to see her continue her story on the show.  Al is tough and fully capable of taking care of herself, but Martha continues to threaten everyone in the group.  Something tells me that she is no match for Al, however.  After all, Martha stole Al’s van and Al is definitely not about to let this go.

3

“It appears to be the cocktail hour.”

At the end of last week’s episode, we were left wondering who Alicia and Charlie spotted across the water.  We have now confirmed that it was in fact John and Victor.  I love a good reunion on this show and it was nice to see John’s lack of faith restored, especially after he got to speak to June.  Alicia and Charlie went looking for a boat, but ran into some trouble along the way when Martha began shooting at them.  Martha is severely injured, but is continuing to cause trouble.  Alicia and Charlie decide to take her with them, remembering that Morgan wanted to help her, but is this really the right call?  They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but Martha is a little bit too close for comfort for me, even though her hands are restrained.  Either way, Alicia drives the tank through the water and picks up her friends, providing us with a much needed glimmer of hope.

2

“You told me to help people.  That’s what I’m doing.”

Morgan decides to create a distraction to help his friends make it out of the hospital, accepting that he will be left behind.  To Morgan’s surprise, everyone comes back to help save him with a fire truck.  The ladder still works, but is a little bit out of reach for Morgan.  Everyone radios to Morgan that they are there to help him and it’s wonderful to see that someone so initially against being around other people has made such a difference and brought so many people together.  Many of the characters have been lost or broken, but somehow they are all here now to help protect their family, refusing to leave anyone behind.  Morgan has done so much good here without even realizing it, but he now has to safely make it to the ladder.  This task is already challenging, but of course we need to throw in an angry walker to spice things up, almost killing Morgan at the edge of the balcony.  Luckily, John still has excellent aim and eliminates the threat and Morgan makes it to the truck.  Now about all these walkers surrounding them…

1

“It’s OK Morgan.  I got this.”

The group is completely surrounded by walkers and Morgan once again contemplates going off on his own to help them escape.  Jim finally steps up to the plate and is ready to help his friends and die with dignity.  Jim radios his beer recipe to Sarah and tells her to keep the last component a secret.  Jim gives the group the distraction they need when he jumps off the rooftop and lands on a parked car, setting off another alarm so his friends can get away.  This moment is truly important because Jim was so initially focused on his own circumstances.  After watching the selfless actions of everyone around him, Jim finally realizes that he can determine how he goes out just like Morgan said to him.  Jim has redeemed himself and his memory will absolutely live on with his beer.  From “Class A Asshole” to redeemed hero.  I like the sound of that.  Sarah and the others decide on calling the beer “Jimbo’s Beerbos,” which Morgan says he would have probably hated, but I have to admit that I definitely like the sound of it.  Morgan suggests that they find Al and all head to Virginia together, which seems like a good enough plan, but Martha has somehow escaped and has now recruited poor walker Jim to her cause, making him her next pet.  While Morgan has stated that he wants to help Martha, I think that she is too far gone at this point.  Will he realize this before it’s too late?  Stay tuned for the season finale next week!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist.

She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 4 episode 12: “I’m Not Gonna Leave Them Behind”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 12, I realized that it’s important to hold on to memories and stories, but not at the expense of losing out on our own.  While it’s sometimes easier to get lost in the past, we have to also remember that there are people counting on us in the present.  Some days are going to be harder than others, but we can keep the stories going without losing ourselves in the process.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Weak,” we follow June and Al after the storm.  Meanwhile, Morgan continues to try and help others, Al proves that knowing how to change a flat tire can save your life, and our new potential villain makes quite the statement.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 12 are:

5

“I gotta try.”

During this episode, Morgan is still with Wendell, Sarah, and Jim, but he refuses to give up on his friends who need help.  Morgan continues to use the walkie to reach out and explains that “somebody did the same for me once as long as he could.”  We know that Morgan is referring to Rick and this moment is important, as we think back to the numerous times that Rick tried to leave messages and information for Morgan.  Even though they were initially passing strangers, Rick didn’t give up on Morgan and Morgan recognizes the importance of doing the same for his friends for as long as he can.

4

“I’m not weak.”

Morgan spots our new potential villain by one of the “take what you need” boxes and tries to offer her help.  He explains that the box saved his own life.  The woman is quiet for a while, but then tells Morgan, “I don’t need any help.  I’m not weak.”  Morgan tells her that he will be on his way, but that she is more than welcome to take what she needs and she warns him, “You should be careful.”  While this statement is ominous enough, we then see the woman tampering with the water bottle.  What is her end game with this?  Why is she trying so hard to destroy the good work of others?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but this is not the last we will see of her this episode.

3

“There isn’t any.  Just wanted to get the van back.”

Al gets very sick during this episode, but is more concerned with getting her van back especially when she sees that someone has stolen it.  Al begs June to go on foot and explains that there is medicine in the tank.  June is hesitant to leave Al behind in her condition, but approaches the tank and meets a stranger who points a gun at her.  The man tells her that “sometimes you can’t help people,” but June is determined to prove him wrong.  After having trouble finding the medicine, she continues to radio to Al, who is busy avoiding getting killed by a walker.  Al’s blurry vision is not helping matters, but she is able to put her surroundings to good use and kicks the car over and over until the tire jack gives out and the walker is brutally crushed.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to learn how to change a flat tire just so I could put this skill to good use too.  Al finally radios over to June and tells her that there is no medicine and she just wanted the van back.  June is beyond upset by this, especially since she almost killed a stranger over it.

2

“How did you believe?”

In the beginning of the episode, June continues to watch the tape of John over and over until she kills the battery on the camera and also uses the walkie to talk to him.  Even though she gets no response from John, she is able to open up and tell him what’s on her mind.  She tells John that she should have never left him and that she’s not sure that she could have answered like he did when asked if he would ever find her again.  In a vulnerable moment, June asks, “How did you believe?”  June is having trouble believing in herself especially since she is surrounded by so much death and pain, but she is trying to be strong for John and for herself.  June recognizes that she used to run away from everything and is trying so hard not to become that person again.  However, every challenge that comes her way pushes her toward resorting back to that person.  At the end of the episode, June radios out to the stranger she left behind and tells him that they are at mile marker 27, trying to do the right thing.  Like Morgan, June is trying to make amends for what she did before, even if it means starting out with a simple conversation and a kind invitation.  Even though it may take June a long time to figure out how to believe, she is certainly on the right path and John would be proud of her.

1

“I’m not gonna leave them behind.”

After June opens up to Al, she asks Al for the truth about the van, as she recognizes that there is clearly more to this story.  Even though Al had previously said she had no time for her own story while she recorded the stories of others, she finally lets her wall down and tells June that the tapes and stories are all she has left.  She explains that the people she knew and loved are on those tapes and she is not going to leave them behind.  June tries to remind Al that “we’re here, we’re alive,” but Al initially wants to go off on her own.  She has a change of heart; however, and tags along with June as they finally reunite with Morgan.  This moment is important because we finally get a glimpse into Al’s own story and what’s important to her.  Like June, Charlie, and Alicia, Al is desperately trying to cling to a memory or a story just to get by.  While Al doesn’t have to leave these people behind entirely, she realizes that she can make room in her heart to help those that are there in the present, proving that she is strong, caring, and loyal.  At the end of the episode, Quinn, the stranger June spoke to, radios out to June that he is at mile marker 27 but no one is there.  We quickly learn that it was a trap set by our new villain who sicks her pet walker on him, killing him.  She kicks the walker out and now writes on Quinn’s face, but what is her end game here?  While her actions are beyond sick and twisted, there has to be more to the story.  I’m absolutely concerned about the well-being of our favorite characters, as this new villain proves that she is not weak and is someone capable of destroying every last sliver of goodness and hope.  It looks like we will get to determine the fate of Victor and John next week.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 Empowered TV Female Characters of 2018 who Save the Day: “Touch me again and you’re gonna need another wooden hand”

Summertime is typically known for reruns, but I am happy that some of my favorite shows premiered late enough in the year so that I can get in some quality time binge-watching.  As I look back on some of my favorite shows that released new episodes in 2018, I started to really think about how incredible it is to see so many empowered female TV characters emerging on a daily basis.  These women are strong, fearless, passionate, and loyal.  They stand out because they aren’t perfect.  They make mistakes just like everyone else, but they are able to turn things around and make the right call to save the people they care about the most.  For today’s list, I am looking at female characters that can kick some serious ass and save the day without compromising who they are in the process.  Please note that supernatural abilities need not apply, as I want to focus on female characters that do not have any special powers or gifts.  Please also note that some spoilers may be ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch any of the series mentioned below.  My top 5 Empowered TV Female Characters of 2018 are:

5

Claire Novak from Supernatural.

Claire 7 5 collage

“I saved Sam and Dean…WE saved Sam and Dean.”

If you haven’t caught up on Supernatural, Claire Novak is the daughter of Jimmy, who is Castiel’s vessel, and she is played by Kathryn Love Newton.  Claire has appeared several times on Supernatural and Jody Mills looks after her.  In 2018, fans got a look at the “Wayward Sisters” backdoor pilot and Claire has grown up to be quite the bad-ass.  She is comically referred to as “Biker Barbie,” which I have to admit is spot on, as she sports some serious leather and a tough attitude, but still has an element of sweetness to her.  In the backdoor pilot to “Wayward Sisters,” Sam and Dean are trapped in “The Bad Place,” and Claire works with Jody and the others to help save them.  She has fully embraced her identity as a hunter and proves to be quite resourceful.  It is absolutely fantastic to watch her take down her enemies and she is not afraid to improvise and even uses a flame thrower to really make an entrance.  While Claire initially tends to swing her fists first and ask questions later, she soon learns from Jody and from her own mistakes that this is not always the best plan.  When Sam and Dean are rescued, Claire finally realizes the importance of family and teamwork, proving that she has grown even further as a character that one can truly count on.

4

Al from Fear the Walking Dead.

Al 7 5 collage.jpg

“Cause I’m a chick with layers.”

If you haven’t caught up yet on Fear the Walking Dead, now is the time.  This season has introduced us to some really compelling characters like John Dorie, Morgan Jones, and Naomi/Laura/June.  Al, played by Maggie Grace, has truly captured my attention, however.  Al is focused completely on gathering the stories of others and she records them on camera so that she is able to keep the story going as long as she can.  Even though Al drives a tank, she initially stays on the sidelines and tries not to get herself too involved.  However, after John Dorie is shot, Morgan gets through to her and she realizes that she may need to put the camera down from time to time and help save the day.  Al is fully capable of taking care of herself and is extremely resourceful and knowledgeable.  When she makes the decision to help John and the others, she proves to be an asset.  Al can also kick some serious ass, as we see an epic fight between her and Alicia that will have you on the edge of your seat.  I’m looking forward to seeing further development of her character, but I am definitely seeing some real potential for a new heroine to emerge on the series.

3

Octavia Blake from The 100.

Octavia 7 5 collage

“You are Wonkru or you’re the enemy of Wonkru.”

The 100 is one of my absolute favorite shows on television right now and the female characters on the show really prove to be strong, intelligent, and valuable.  Characters like Clarke, Lexa, Raven, and Abby really elevate the show, but I have to admire Octavia Blake’s breakout in 2018.  Octavia, played by Marie Avgeropoulos, was known as “the girl under the floor,” always hiding behind her brother, Bellamy.  When Octavia meets her true love, Lincoln, she was able to tap into her potential and learn how to fight and stand up for herself.  After “Praimfaya,” struck the world, Octavia made the brave decision to allow all crews inside the bunker to save them, but this was no easy task to maintain.  In 2018, we see Octavia’s struggle to hold on to her power as “The Red Queen” or “Blodreina,” as each crew became agitated with the others and the reality set in that not everyone in the bunker would be able to survive.  Octavia was hesitant at first about being a leader, but fully embraced it after Jaha died, taking his words of wisdom to heart.  Octavia recognized that not everyone would agree with her decisions; but that they would all need to stand together in order to have a chance at survival.  In a heroic moment, Octavia begins fighting anyone who rebels and repeats, “You are Wonkru or you’re the enemy of Wonkru,” over and over again, until she finally makes her point.  Even though her decisions as a leader are somewhat questionable and perhaps no longer appropriate in their current situation, you can’t help but root for Octavia in this pivotal moment.  The girl under the floor is no more and a true queen has emerged.

2

Cheryl Blossom from Riverdale.

Cheryl 7 5 collage

“Untie her, you serpent hag!”

While there are many empowered female characters on Riverdale, Cheryl, played by Madelaine Petsch, showed the most promise for me in 2018.  We have seen Cheryl grow as a character and take on quite a lot.  While she may initially seem like an ice queen, Cheryl eventually learns to let her walls down and to open up to those around her.  Cheryl has a lot to deal with and her mother doesn’t make her life any easier.  When Cheryl begins confiding in Toni about how her mother stifled her feelings toward other girls, it starts to make a lot of sense why Cheryl kept everyone at a distance.  After Cheryl’s mother has her locked away in a mental institution, Toni and Veronica come to her rescue, but Cheryl refuses to be broken in this moment.  Cheryl rises from the ashes and stands up to her mother and I have to say it’s about time.  Cheryl’s growing feelings for Toni also help her realize the importance of love and loyalty.  When Penny kidnaps Toni, Cheryl heroically shows up with a red hood and her bow and arrow to save her “Cherie.”  One can’t help but cheer for her in this moment, as she is no longer a scared little girl.  Rather, she has blossomed into a fearless and sensational woman.  Cheryl continuously shows her courage, as she stands up to the adults around her and even takes on “The Black Hood.”  Look out world, here comes “Cheryl Bombshell.”

1

Kelly Maxwell from Ash vs Evil Dead.

Kelly 7 5

“It’s Gladiator time, bitch.”

So my number one pick for the most empowered TV female character of 2018 has to go to the beautiful and hilarious Kelly Maxwell, played by Dana DeLorenzo.   Kelly proves that you don’t need to be “The Chosen One” or “El Brujo Especial” in order to save the day.  Kelly is tough and loyal, proving to be a “ghost beater” for life.  After teaming up with Dalton from the “Knights of Sumeria,” Kelly makes the courageous decision to take on the villain, Ruby, all by herself with the Kandarian Dagger.  Ruby is pretty much the queen of hell and is almost indestructible, but Kelly actually puts up quite a fight against her.  You can’t help rooting for her in this moment and when Ruby stabs her with the Kandarian Dagger, she even tells her that she was her favorite.  I remember being shocked and heartbroken in this moment, but Kelly was able to survive in the world through the rift and is ultimately rescued by Pablo toward the end of the series.  In the series finale, Kelly reminds us why we love her so much.  She kicks some serious ass and begins screaming while shooting as many deadites as she can, proving that she is fully capable of saving the day.  When Ash ultimately goes to fight the big bad, he tells Kelly that she is the leader now and I have to agree with his choice.  Kelly is strong and fearless and refuses to compromise herself for anyone.  She’s not afraid to express her opinion and use as much colorful and foul language as possible to get her point across, but that’s why we adore her so much.  Kelly is someone you could genuinely see yourself being friends with.  She tells you the harsh truth whether you want to hear it or not, but she is there for you no matter what, which is something that makes her truly stand out as a good friend and an even better heroine.

I hope you enjoyed the list and please feel free to post your thoughts on some of your own favorite empowered TV Female Characters of 2018 in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 4 episode 1: “Tell Me One Real Thing”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  I have to admit that Sunday television has got me playing catch-up, as some of my favorite shows happen to all air at once.   After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season finale, I had some mixed feelings, but there was a lot to wrap my head around.  I finally got the chance to watch the season 4 premiere of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead last night, however; and I have to say that the crossover event was a success to me.  Although it had almost an eerie sense of quiet compared to the deafening chaos in The Walking Dead, it was something that truly resonated with me, as I found myself lost within the story and truly sympathizing with Morgan Jones.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “What’s Your Story?” many of our fan-favorites from The Walking Dead show up and try to get Morgan to change his mind about leaving.  However, Morgan feels that he needs to be alone and heads out on his own.  This is short-lived however; when he crosses paths with a man in a cowboy hat named John Dorie and a female journalist named Al.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 1 are:

5

“You can hide but you can’t run.”

When the season premiere begins, we focus in on Morgan who is still in the junkyard, closed off from society.  This is interrupted over and over, however; when Jesus, Carol, and Rick all show up, desperately trying to get Morgan to change his mind about leaving.  Morgan sticks to his decision and explains that he needs to be alone.  Morgan has been struggling with inner-demons and is searching for a way to overcome this.  He knows that he is a danger to those around him if he stays, but will he lose himself completely if he goes off on his own?  His friends remind him that he cares about people and should be with them, but Morgan remains strong with his decision and steps out onto an open road, leaving his past behind him.  We know that Rick’s words, “you can hide but you can’t run,” will catch up to him all too quickly, but Morgan continues on his journey all the same.

4

Meet John Dorie.

That’s Dory like the fish, but spelled with an “ie.”  This new character is not from the comic series and is played by Deadwood star, Garret Dillahunt.  The stranger in a cowboy hat proves to be quite the “gunslinger,” but seems to have a good heart and a strong sense of doing what’s right.  He offers Morgan shelter and when Morgan takes off and gets into trouble, John Dorie is not far behind, proving that he can be a worthy ally.  John Dorie shares his own story that he is searching for his wife who has his matching gun, which is heart-breaking and commendable at the same time.  He refuses to give up hope and he seems to remind Morgan that human connections are all they have to cling to in this harsh reality filled with death and decay.  The “karate man” and “gunslinger” prove to be quite the team, but will Morgan be able to truly open up after all he has been through?

3

Meet Al.

Shortly after the introduction of new character, John Dorie, we also meet Al who is a journalist played by the beautiful and talented, Maggie Grace.  As a huge fan of Lost, I was more than pleased to see Maggie Grace step into a new and different role.  Her hair is cut boy-short and she packs quite the punch with her van filled with handy weapons, but what sparked my interest the most is that she is out to discover everyone’s story.  Morgan gently reminds her that there are no more news stations around and why does it matter, but Al’s need to continue the story anyway proves that she hasn’t given up hope either.  She keeps her camera with her and documents everything she can, looking for something real to connect to.

2

“Tell me one real thing.”

After Morgan, John, and Al survive the attack from the armed men and walkers, Morgan is finally ready to open up, even if it is for just a moment.  Al records him and asks him to tell her one real thing and explain why he left Virginia.  Morgan explains, “I lose people and then I lose myself,” which touched my heart instantly.  It’s hard not to feel sympathetic toward Morgan and understand his need to run away.  Even though he was part of many settlements before, he still chooses to be on his own, desperately trying to hold on to his humanity.  Perhaps being around people again will remind Morgan that he has the chance to truly do something great and make a difference.

1

“So what the hell’s your story?”

At the end of the episode, the three characters come across a woman who is sobbing in the middle of the road.  They cautiously approach the woman, not knowing what to expect, but offer to help her.  The woman is revealed to be Alicia who turns a gun on them and Nick, Luciana, and Victor appear as well to surround them.  The crossover has officially well…crossed over and these characters are now all connected whether they want to be or not.  While we are unclear on how Alicia, Nick, Luciana, and Victor all ended up together, since it seemed like everyone was separated at the end of last season, we have plenty of episodes to find out what they are up to and how they got here.  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own theories and comments on Fear the Walking Dead below.  Thanks for reading and happy viewing!
