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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 11: “You Made It Your Own”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 11, I realized that sometimes the universe may be trying to tell us something, but perhaps we need to see it for ourselves in order for it to truly resonate with us.  Whether it’s a moment of self-reflection or a meaningful message, just taking that moment means that we are still here.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “You’re Still Here,” Alicia and Victor try to track down the person who painted the trees, but Alicia is not exactly sure what she is truly searching for.  Meanwhile, Morgan and Al’s mission is interrupted when they run into Logan and his gang, as we start to learn more about his bigger plan.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 11 are:

5

“I just know how I feel when I see those trees.”

In this episode, we catch up with Alicia and Victor.  Alicia is still having trouble taking out walkers and she focuses her attention on tracking down the person who has been painting the messages on the trees.  Victor asks Alicia what this is really going to do for her and Alicia is not exactly sure, but she recognizes that it is important.

Alicia says, “They see the world in a way I want to see it,” hoping that she can find the answers she is looking for by talking to this person.  We know that Alicia’s encounter with the radioactive walker has traumatized her, but let’s hope that this mission can get her back on track because Victor is not always going to be around with perfect timing to help save her.

4

“You’re really gonna make me work for it, huh?”

Meanwhile, we also catch up with Morgan and Al in this episode.  Morgan seems grateful for the distraction, but Al senses that something is up and tries to get Morgan to open up about it.  Morgan initially tells Al that there is nothing to talk about, but this one-on-one talk is interrupted when Alicia calls them over the walkie for backup.

Later in the episode, Morgan does open up to Al and she reminds him that he can tell her about his wife and son.  This is a huge step for Morgan and I am glad to see that he is finally willing to share something real and close to his heart with the people around him.

3

“What I’m doing is bigger than you.”

Is it though?  Logan listens in on Alicia’s call out to Morgan and Al and shows up with the truck to get in Morgan’s way.  Logan recognizes that they will not want to risk an innocent person’s life and asks him where the oil fields are.  Morgan tries to ask Logan what he needs the gas for and we still don’t get a concrete answer here.  Logan dances around the answer and tells him that he will be helping people, but not in a way Morgan would approve of…so what does that mean?  Is Logan looking to blow something up?  What is his real plan? 

We still don’t know and at the end of the episode, Logan breaks into the vault, looking for Clayton’s journals, but is out of luck for now.  Logan is getting a little bit too personal; however, as he taunts Morgan by telling him he couldn’t help his wife and son, which sparks some untapped anger within Morgan.  Morgan is able to walk away from this, but Logan now has his tape, so it looks like he plans on using personal information about Morgan against him.  How will this all play out?  I’m not sure, but it doesn’t look like Logan is going away anytime soon.

2

“People are people.”

After having his own run-in with Logan in a previous episode, Wes is back and radios over to Alicia and Victor for help.  Wes seems guarded, but does open up a little bit about his brother who died and Alicia attempts to form a connection with him.  Wes reminds her that people are people and that they live in a world now where “we shoot, we kill.”  Alicia tries to tell him that it doesn’t have to be this way, but is Wes truly ready to do what is right?

Wes is focused on getting back his manuscript, which is apparently good enough to die over so I’m intrigued, but when Alicia reads the very end, she discovers that Wes is the one who painted the trees.  Will we see Wes again?  I’m not sure, but I think that he is an interesting and unique character and I would like to see more of him.

1

“I’m not gonna find what I’m looking for from anybody else…”

Both Morgan and Alicia do a lot of self-reflecting in this episode.  Al tells Morgan that “what we lost doesn’t define us” and suggests that maybe it’s about what we do.  Meanwhile, Alicia takes a moment to paint her own tree and leaves the message:  “No one’s gone until they’re gone,” which clearly touches Morgan.

It’s one thing to say something out loud, but when you see the words in front of you, they have the power to become something else.  They inspire you and bring out something within you that perhaps you thought was lost a long time ago.  They remind you that there is always the opportunity to do better and to start a new path.

At the very end of the episode, Alicia is able to kill a walker and tells Victor that she is good.  I’m happy that she was able to find this strength within herself and I thought that the connection between her and Morgan was done beautifully, seamlessly connecting these two characters who are trying so hard to keep going.  Let’s just hope that Logan doesn’t taint everything they have been trying to accomplish.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 10: “Candy Beansies”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 10, I realized that sometimes knowing the truth isn’t necessarily better.  We need to hold on to the belief that there is a tomorrow and make every day truly count.  Whether that means following through on a promise or making someone smile, there are endless possibilities to make our days truly meaningful.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “210 Words Per Minute,” Morgan and Grace try to help someone named Chuck and wind up on an extreme escalator adventure at a shopping mall.  Meanwhile, Dwight goes off on a dangerous mission of his very own and Morgan makes a tough decision.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 10 are:

5

“We’re not doing careful.  We’re doing right.”

That may be, but Dwight seems to be a little bit more worried about Logan and his men than Morgan.  Dwight has been there before with the Saviors and realizes that Logan and his people may not see the good they are trying to do, but Morgan is going to keep helping others no matter what.

We know that Logan wants gas and he wants to find out where the oil fields are, but we still don’t understand his full agenda just yet.  We’ve had a lot of setup for Logan and I’m anxious to find out what he truly has planned for our favorite characters.

4

“Someone gave me a second chance and it’s the same chance I’m giving you.”

Dwight decides to head off on his own mission and anticipates that one of Logan’s men will follow him.  Dwight doesn’t get too much information out of the man, but things get a little intense when the man starts burning one of Sherry’s letters.  Dwight could have easily taken a route of revenge here, but he gives the man a chance instead and decides to let him go, proving that he is really taking a leap of faith here. 

Is it the right call?  I’m not so sure, but I think this was an important step for Dwight as a character and you can tell that he is truly trying to change.  Sometimes you just need to take one step at a time, but I’m curious to see what Dwight does next.  I’m really glad he is getting the opportunity to shine on Fear TWD, similar to Morgan.

3

“Give me the chance to do something real while I can.”

So, I have been interested in Grace’s character for a while now and I’m really glad that we finally got the chance to learn more about her in this episode.  Morgan agrees to help Grace get to the Urgent Care in the shopping mall so that she can determine how sick she is after she faints in the beginning of the episode.  This leads to some beyond adorable moments between these two, as we actually get to witness Morgan smile! 

Morgan is amused that Grace thinks jelly beans are called “candy beansies,” but he also has a blast using a remote control car to lure away the walkers in the mall.  After initially hesitating, Morgan does open up, sharing some stories about his son and his own remote control car and Grace talks about her past as well.  It’s hard to deny the spark forming between these two, but is Morgan truly ready to embrace a chance at happiness for himself?

2

“It’s perfect…”

After an intense close call with the walkers on the escalator, Morgan and Grace discover that Chuck is still alive.  Chuck made it to the rooftop, just wanting to see the stars one last time and Grace is able to make that happen with a projection since it is a cloudy night.  Chuck thinks it is perfect and is beyond grateful that they answered his call for help.

This moment was important because you could truly see that what Morgan and the others are doing matters.  This moment also impacts Grace, as she realizes that every single day counts and perhaps she doesn’t have to be scared of starting something she may not be able to finish after all.  Although, listening to A Tale of Two Cities in its entirety is quite the challenge.

1

“That’s being alive…really alive.”

After the encounter with Chuck, Grace realizes that she doesn’t want to find out how sick she is and decides that she is “just going to believe there’s more than today.”  Morgan reminds her how brave she is and the two of them share a beyond sweet moment together on the carousel.  I have to say that this may be one of my favorite moments on the show, as Morgan finally lets go and reveals a glimmer of happiness.

Only later on, Morgan realizes that perhaps he isn’t ready to move on and decides to head off to find Al instead of going along with Grace.  Is it because he still feels guilty over his wife and son or is it because he feels that he simply doesn’t deserve a chance at happiness right now?  I’m not sure, but when Morgan drives away with tears in his eyes, I was crying my eyes out.  So incredibly heartbreaking!

Is there any hope for Morgan and Grace?  I’m not so sure, but I thought this was a really touching episode.  Oh and PS, Dwight getting a haircut from Daniel was everything!  Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 8/17/19 on TV goes to…

Lennie James as Morgan Jones on AMC’s Fear the Walking DeadOne of the best things to happen to the Fear TWD series was to have Lennie James join the cast.  Part of what makes Morgan so essential to the series is that someone who was previously lost and alone has now become the leader of the group.  He touches the lives of each character in one way or another and he continues to see the good in the world, even when it may seem like there is none left.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.

In season 5, Morgan has continued his mission of helping others in need, trying to do one good deed at a time.  It is inspiring, but I have been more moved by Morgan’s self-reflection, understanding that perhaps he needs to help himself as well, which is easier said than done.  It often seems like Morgan is always keeping busy so that he does not have to deal with his own inner pain and that comes out more in season 5, episode 9.

After Morgan risks his life to help a woman and child, Morgan is the one who needs saving and he has to put his full trust in someone else.  When Morgan opens up later in the episode, he finally starts talking about his own grief, realizing that he never truly said goodbye to his wife and son and that he doesn’t know how to.

This moment of sheer honesty and vulnerability really elevated Morgan’s character in my opinion.  He’s always in motion and he tries to help those around him, but he finally takes a second to talk about what he needs to do and how he is feeling.

What’s next for Morgan?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it will be interesting to find out what happens when he faces off with Logan.  Morgan is not to be underestimated, but is he able to do what is truly necessary to survive?  We have seen Morgan in similar situations before where he continues to try and fight for someone, even when they have shown their true colors again and again.

You have to admire Morgan’s willingness to continue to see that tiny sliver of goodness, but you also have to wonder if it will ultimately be his downfall.  Either way, Morgan is a true leader and he is so inspiring.  I love watching his interactions with every character and my favorite friendship is his one with Alicia.

Morgan sees so much of himself in Alicia and I love that he is doing everything he can to help her, reminding us that family is about more than blood.  Morgan may have lost his own family, but he has the opportunity to save his new family and you can’t help rooting for him.  I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 9: “Help Everyone”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 9, I realized that sometimes you have to truly ask yourself what to do with the time you have left.  While some days may be easier than other days, it comes down to finding glimmers of goodness in the most unexpected places.  Maybe not everyone is ready to help, but the smallest steps can often make the biggest impact.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Channel 4,” we catch up with our favorite characters…documentary style.  Meanwhile, Morgan takes a wrong step that could have a fatal outcome, Alicia finds a new purpose, and John tells us about the “ugliest mustard” he has ever seen.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 9 are:

5

“We haven’t stopped since…”

In the beginning of the episode, we catch up with our favorite characters, as Al continues to tape each one of them.  We learn that they have continued to help others even after Logan’s cryptic warning at the end of the mid-season finale.  Some of the characters open up more than others, but it looks like things haven’t changed too drastically since we last checked in with our Fear TWD family.

4

“Karma’s a bitch.”

During the documentary, we learn that no one really appreciates Sarah and Wendell’s trucker music…except for Sarah and Wendell.  Sarah also fills us in and lets us know that Logan was playing them all along and just wanted to steal their gas.  We see a clip of Sarah taking the truck and leaving Logan behind, which was funny to watch, but I can’t say that I was really surprised by this revelation.  At least they didn’t drag out the reveal too much.

3

“She would have liked this.”

Our favorite zombie fighting super hero is taking somewhat of a break, as Alicia informs us that she has not killed a walker since after the plane.  Alicia tries changing up her tasks and also takes some time to practice using her staff with Morgan.  Alicia stumbles upon a tree beautifully decorated, which reads:  “If you’re reading this, you’re still here.”  The message hits home for Alicia and she even says that her mother would have really liked something like this.

I’m not sure if Alicia has quite found her Zen yet, but she does decide to track down the person leaving the messages, which gives us a new mission for our girl.  Alicia has been broken before, but she somehow always manages to find her inner strength to pull through and I personally can’t wait to see what she does next.

2

“50/50.”

Even though the majority of the episode had a slower transitional feel for me, we did get a little action with some landmines when the group goes to help a woman named Tess in need.  After discovering that the woman’s husband is dead and tracking down the inhaler she needs for her young son, Morgan feels a connection to this one, which brings up feelings about his own wife and son.

Morgan tries to get to the house and steps on one of the landmines, but luckily Al has some experience with this…except she’s only about 50/50 sure that her plan will work.  Luckily, Tess decides to step out of her house after two years to help save Morgan and everyone is OK for now, but this one was definitely a close call.

1

“Sometimes you just can’t say goodbye…”

After Morgan’s close call, he reveals that he understands that sometimes it is beyond difficult to say goodbye and realizes that he still hasn’t truly said goodbye to his wife and son and he’s not sure how to.  I thought this was a beautiful and vulnerable moment for Morgan and I’m starting to understand more and more why he keeps busy by helping others.

Morgan still wants to help everyone and we get several motivational comments from everyone toward the end of the documentary, which was nice and all, but I was starting to think that nothing much was going to happen in this episode at all.  We learn that the tapes are being used to inspire others to help, but it’s not going to be easy to convince everyone to change.

We do get somewhat of a setup at the very end and discover that Logan is far from gone, as we catch up with him and his new team.  His team has plenty of bullets to go around, but they are still looking for gas.  It looks like Logan’s boots weren’t really made for walking after all and he still has a score to settle, so our group better watch out.  Let’s just hope the pace picks up for the next episodes because I am craving some walker frenzy action for sure.  Stay tuned!

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

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 7: “I’ll Hold Them Off”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 7, I realized that “all life is precious,” but it’s important to value your own life just as much as the lives of the people around you.  Sometimes it may seem like sacrifice is the answer, but “impossible shit” still happens so it’s important to keep believing.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Still Standing,” Alicia continues to take out walkers like a boss, desperately trying to get Annie and the other kids to come with her.  Meanwhile, Morgan tries to help Victor and Charlie, and Al opens up to June.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 7 are:

5

“We are both exactly where we’re supposed to be.”

In the beginning of the episode, Alicia takes out the walkers in her way and tries to get through to Annie and the kids.  She explains that she just wants to help, but Annie tells her that she never should have come there.  Meanwhile, Morgan tries to reach Victor and Charlie, who get creative when it comes to setting up a barrier to protect themselves against the radioactive walkers.  Alicia continued to impress me with her perseverance, but Annie was starting to really get on my nerves.  Alicia has placed herself in danger repeatedly to help these children, but is the risk worth it?

4

“I lied to you…”

We check in with John and Dwight for a little while and John continues to have second thoughts about showing Dwight the letter from Sherry.  However, he eventually hands him the letter and apologizes for not giving it to him sooner.  Dwight actually handles it remarkably well and focuses on the fact that he believes that Sherry is still alive.  He even points out that “impossible shit happens” so perhaps he will see Sherry again one day, but it doesn’t look that is going to happen anytime soon, as Dwight now realizes that he needs to help John.  I am really enjoying the friendship and bond between these two and I hope we continue to get some screen time for them.

3

“You are not dead yet.”

Morgan continues to let positivity be his guide, as he tries to help his friends.  After taking a quick tour of Grace’s house before using her truck, Morgan decides to suit up in his hazmat suit so that he can help Grace.  The generator has failed and they are running out of time, but Morgan refuses to give up on her, reminding her that her life matters.

Grace also gives Morgan some advice as well and tells him that “you think everyone’s life is more important than yours” and she may be on to something here.  It seems like both Morgan and Alicia are focusing so much on helping others that they are forgetting about their own lives in the process.  Morgan has been giving out so much advice in season 5 and I thought it was necessary and spot on for Grace to return the favor here.

2

“What do you say to someone who is missing a piece of themselves?”

One of my absolute favorite moments was when we took some time to follow Al and June.  The plane is out of fuel, but luckily Al knows where to find some after her encounter with Isabelle.  Al finally takes June up on her offer and opens up to her about meeting Isabelle.  Of course she doesn’t tell her everything, but she does take the time to explain that she felt something she hadn’t felt in a long time, but knows that she will never see her again.

June’s advice really touched me.  She tells Al that when she thought she would never seen John again, she was grateful for the time they spent together.  She chooses to still believe and tells Al that she will see Isabelle again one day.  While I’m not sure that we will see Isabelle anytime soon, I thought this moment was so real and touching.  It really spoke to me and I’m hoping that June and John are not separated again because I can’t handle it!

1

“I don’t know what you did but I know you made up for it.”

A group of walkers begin to get through Annie’s perimeter and the children are in immediate danger.  Max and Dylan beg Annie to just let Alicia help and she finally agrees.  Alicia runs across the bridge like a boss and takes out walkers left and right.  You can’t help rooting for her in moments like these, as she is a fighter and a complete bad-ass!  However, our girl Alicia is not invincible and she ends up taking out a radioactive walker.  The blood reaches her face and she recognizes that she has just been exposed here.

Alicia doesn’t give up; however, as she continues to give the kids a chance to get to safety.  Morgan radios over to Alicia at the end of the episode and she lies and tells him that she’s OK.  Morgan tells her that it’s time they start living their own lives in addition to helping others and Alicia agrees, realizing that perhaps she doesn’t have too much living left.

Alicia Clark is the heart and soul of this show and she is played brilliantly by Alycia Debnam-Carey.  She continues to impress me again and again and I am wondering what this means for the fate of her character.  Is there any chance that Alicia will be OK?  I’m not so sure, but I’m holding on to the impossible hope that she will be OK somehow.  Maybe the radioactive walker was marked in error or perhaps there is a chance that the blood was somehow not contaminated?

Alicia is the last Clark standing and I’m not sure that I can handle a world without her.  It was heartbreaking enough losing her as Lexa on The 100 and I can’t do it again here!  It looks like we have a lot of action coming our way in episode 8 now that the alarms have sounded, so we will have to stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 5 episode 6: “We’ve Done the Impossible Before”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 6, I realized that “more things are possible than impossible,” but what happens when you lose that last faint glimmer of hope?  How do you keep going?  Do you hold on to the dream or do you face reality and stop searching for the impossible?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Little Prince,” the group works together to fix the plane, but they are running out of time.  Meanwhile, everyone takes a moment to share something about their feelings, connecting to the people around them.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 6 are:

“Off the record…”

Al went through quite the emotional roller coaster in episode 5, but she is trying to stay on track now and fix the plane.  Of course that’s easier said than done, but we take a brief moment for her and June to talk.  June recognizes that perhaps Al went through something when she was taken and reminds her that she once allowed her to talk about everything off the record, now giving Al the chance to do the same.

Al doesn’t share with June, but I thought this was a sweet moment and I actually really like the friendship between these two.  There are a lot of similarities between both characters and they both know what it’s like to shut people out, but it’s great to see that they are now developing so much and growing as characters.

“If you don’t do what I say, there’s gonna be another meltdown.”

Even though the majority of the episode is focused on filler share time for the group, we do get some drama, as we get to see Grace again in this episode.  Grace radios over to Morgan and explains that she needs their generator because the one she was using failed.  Grace explains that if the generator works, it will buy them some time, but that they better fix that plane soon.  No pressure guys!

“These things are always complicated.”

During the episode, John and Dwight continue their search for Sherry and Dwight doesn’t seem like he is initially up for any over sharing.  However, John continues to open up to him and shows him the scrabble letters he carries around with him from when June first revealed that she loved him.  I think it’s beyond sweet that John still holds on to them and I am still shipping John and June so much!

Dwight recognizes that John is a good person and sees the world a certain way.  He finally opens up a little bit about Sherry and explains that “she chose to give up everything” for him.  John finds a clue in the diner and ends up discovering an infinity note from Sherry or “Honey” in the car.  He reads the letter and discovers that this is the last letter that Sherry plans on writing, telling Dwight that she wants him to move on.

Dwight can tell that Sherry was there and is clearly excited and hopeful over this discovery, but John lies to him and tells him that he didn’t find anything. While I think that Dwight has a right to get some closure here, John recognizes that something like this would completely crush him and he decides to keep that glimmer of hope still going.  Is it the right call?  I’m not so sure, but I completely understand where John is coming from and I think he did this out of the goodness of his heart.  Then again, Dwight also deserves the truth.

“Just make sure you’re doing what they really asked.”

While the group is trying to fix the plane, Annie tries to convince Max and Dylan to leave with her.  Alicia explains that it’s not safe and desperately tries to get through to Annie.  Annie finally releases the guard around her and tells Alicia what happened with their parents.  She watched them all get sick after they were exposed to the radioactive walkers and was told to keep the group of children safe.  Annie has been carrying this burden around with her this entire time, which is no easy task for anyone.  Alicia recognizes where she is coming from and tells her that she constantly thinks about the last thing her own mother told her.

Annie still seems convinced that the right decision is to go back to hiding behind the dead, but Alicia asks her an important question, wondering if Annie finds surrounding herself with the dead easier than surrounding herself with the living.  Alicia understands what it feels like to want to run away, but she has gone through something very similar and wants to help Annie too.  Annie and the kids ultimately leave, but Alicia decides that she’s going in, even though she will need to make her way through a large group of walkers.  While Alicia Clark is my favorite zombie super hero, she is outnumbered here, but it looks like she is not giving up without a fight!

“Roads are not a necessary ingredient to this journey.”

While the group is working on the plane, Victor, Charlie, and Sarah continue to try and work on things on their end, but they don’t know how they are going to get to their friends.  It seems like the answer has been in front of them the whole time, as Charlie shows them a picture of our dear good friend Jimbo, sparking the idea to use his inflatable beer hot air balloon to reach their friends.

It looks like everything is working out, but Victor cannot find the perfect “coaster” to land on, as they end up having to put the balloon down very quickly, losing contact with Morgan over the radio.  Victor and Charlie are completely surrounded by walkers and they know that Morgan warned them to stay away from them, but will they be able to get out of this jam unharmed?  Luckily, Morgan has a new staff and he is going in, much like Alicia.  Let’s hope he can reach them in time!  Stay tuned!
