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

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

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

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

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

5

“Now’s the time to do something.”

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

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

4

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

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

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

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

3

“I think this is one big misunderstanding.”

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

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

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

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

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

2

“Do we have a deal?”

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

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

1

“I will do whatever it takes.”

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

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

How does he always have the best timing?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

5

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

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

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

It’s about time!

4

“I can’t stay here.”

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

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6 John Dorie

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

3

“I’m gonna help these people.”

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

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6 Luciana

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

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

2

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

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

Fear TWD season 6 episode 6

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

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

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.

Fear TWD Dwight Season 6 episode 5

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.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 5 Morgan

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.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 5 Sherry

Images courtesy of AMC

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.

Fear TWD season 6 episode 4 3

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 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

Images courtesy of AMC

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.

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories 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 16 Season Finale: “Just Live!”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 16, I realized that our actions may be about the future, but what if we aren’t around to see their impact?  Do they still matter?  Should we still risk it all to do the right thing?  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “End of the Line,” the group attempts to find another way around Virginia’s offer, but they run into some trouble.  Meanwhile, Dwight self-reflects, John and June finally tie the knot, and Alicia is back in action.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 16 season finale are:

5

“I’m not afraid of it anymore.”

Finally!  Our girl, Alicia Clark is back!!!!!  Alicia is back in action and Victor happily hands over her weapon.  There’s no reason why Alicia can’t paint things and kick some walker ass too!

Alicia is confident that they can clear the gulch and sparks are continuing to fly between her and Wes, but will we eventually get to see something beyond lingering stares?  I hope so, but I am thrilled that Alicia is ready to channel the strength within her because we need her!

4

“I am who I am because of you folks.”

Dwight gets his time to shine in this episode, as he tries to convince the group that they can make things work without Virginia.  Dwight does not want to repeat history and he remembers what happened with Negan all too well.  He clearly doesn’t want the same thing to happen to his new friends here.

After the walkers decide to go for a dip to cool off in the river, Dwight ends up surrounded, but Morgan and the others refuse to leave him behind.  I think the character development of Dwight is necessary and important and we will definitely need him in the fight against Virginia later on.

3

“I loved you since the first day you washed up on my shore.”

I don’t know what it is about John and June, but they make me swoon and then some!  These two finally get their special moment, as they tie the knot in front of the group.  The group still has a little bit of time left before Virginia gets there and they try to make the most of it.  I thought June looked absolutely stunning in her green gown and it was incredibly sweet and selfless of Dwight to give them his rings.

2

“I felt something.  I need you to know that.”

John and June aren’t the only ones to get their romantic moment, as Morgan finally tells Grace how he feels.  Grace reciprocates the feeling before they are separated, after confiding in Morgan about why she originally didn’t want him to say anything.

Well, we find out that Grace’s story about her past love interest at the plant does have a point, as she is actually pregnant, rather than sick, which I did not see coming.  I’m happy that Grace is all right, but I’m extremely concerned about the shocking moment that follows…here we go.

1

“Just live!”

So, I’ve been saying for a while that we need a major character death in order to shake things up on this show, but I was not expecting this.  After everyone is separated by Virginia’s people, I was beyond upset.  Side note, the separation of Daniel and Skidmark really made me cry!  But, Virginia decides not to take any chances with Morgan, leaving him for last.

Virginia turns the gun on him and shoots him, leaving him for dead.  It’s clear that Morgan has been threatening Virginia’s vision for the future a little bit too much and she wants to be rid of him once and for all.  We are left seeing Morgan bleeding out, as walkers approach him.  After finding out that Grace is actually pregnant, Morgan seems hopeful still and radios out that “it was about the future” and tells everyone to “just live.” 

Well, I’m hoping that Morgan can somehow take his own advice, but it doesn’t look too good for our main character.  That being said, I’m thinking back to TWD when we thought Glenn was originally dead in an impossible situation, so I know that sometimes the impossible is possible in TWD universe, but we will have to wait and see Morgan’s fate.

This was definitely the shocking moment I was looking for, although I don’t want anything to happen to Morgan.  I would love to get some of your theories.  Do you think Morgan is truly dead?  Stay tuned!

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 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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Fear the Walking Dead” season 4 episode 16 season finale: “We’re Coming For You”

Happy Tuesday TV fans!  After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 16 season finale, I think that John Dorie got it absolutely right when he says that “Some fish in this world you can’t catch no matter what you dangle in front of them.”  So do you leave them be or do you keep trying, even though you know what the outcome might be?  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 Myself,” we catch up with Al and witness her struggle to escape the walkers who are surrounding her at the parking garage at every corner.  Meanwhile, Morgan makes the decision to go after Martha alone, promising his friends that he will catch up to them, but they are all in for a threat that no one saw coming.  My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 16 season finale are:

5

“I want you to give him a message.”

In the beginning of the episode, Al is surrounded by walkers and ends up in a parking garage near the hospital.  Al tries to get a message to Morgan and the others over the Walkie, but is not able to get through to them.  Martha catches up to Al; however, and unleashes poor zombie Jimbo on her, but Al is able to stop the immediate threat on her life.  However, she hesitates when faced against Martha, who knocks her out.  Martha later tells Al that she thinks she is strong and that she watched her tape.  She uses Al as a message for Morgan and includes a tape of her very own for him.  Even though Al is strong, she does still hold on to her humanity, which is the main reason why she hesitated when it came to eliminating Martha.  Luckily Al is all right for now, but that was a close call for sure.  Great to have you back Al!

4

“Leave them be.”

John Dorie gives Morgan some really strong advice about what to do about Martha, but Morgan insists on trying anyway.  During the entire season, I have been very touched by the strong friendship between John and Morgan.  John later radios out to Morgan that he is the strongest person he knows, remembering that he was there when Morgan was at his breaking point.  John may be the first person who really got through to Morgan after he left Alexandria and has become a strong motivator for him now.  John is a true believer and even though his own faith has been tested, he stays true to his positivism, which is infectious to everyone around him…in a good way.

3

“Have you seen the movie selection here?”

John and June finally have a moment together when they are browsing the shelves at the truck stop.  This gives June a sense of nostalgia and John teasingly comments that the movie selection is a bit lacking, however.  June finally opens up to John and lets her guard down, explaining that she was afraid that he would realize that she wasn’t who he thought she was.  John touches our hearts and souls when he says, “I know you.  Doesn’t take a whole day to recognize sunshine.”  As corny as it may sound, it is so true to who John Dorie is and you can’t help but smile here and cheer when these two finally embrace and share a passionate kiss.  It’s about time you two!

2

“You either kill me or I kill you.”

After watching Martha’s message, Morgan decides to go after her alone.  Morgan explains that he understands Martha because he used to be her.  He further reveals that she thinks killing is the only way, which is something that still haunts Morgan now.  Martha is severely injured and Morgan offers to help her.  He finds her at mile marker 54, lying next to her husband’s grave and Martha does open up to Morgan about her husband in the police car.  Martha reveals just a sliver of hope here, but she refuses to let Morgan make her be weak.  When Morgan tries to hand her the medicine, she attacks him and the car is run off the road.  Martha has been given so many chances, but Morgan is still not able to end her life.  Even after being badly injured himself, he tells himself that he has to keep going, especially when he learns that Martha has poisoned his friends by putting antifreeze in the drinking water.  Morgan comes very close to killing Martha, but spots the reflection of “I lose people…I lose myself,” written on his forehead.  Even though it was not Martha’s intention, this actually saved her life, as it was a reminder to Morgan about who he was before and who he can still be now.  Morgan chooses life and desperately tries to make it to his friends on foot before it’s too late.

1

“Hang in there.  We’re coming for you.”

Morgan finally gets through to his friends over the Walkie and June reveals that they need ethanol to counteract the antifreeze poisoning.  Luckily there is a truck filled with it right outside.  Seems simple enough, right?  Well we know that nothing comes easy on Fear TWD.  The group does a fantastic job of distracting the walkers and making it to the truck and Al unleashes her fury on the horde by opening fire on them.  Unfortunately, the truck begins leaking out the ethanol they need and it looks like all hope is lost.  Just when it seems like they are all running out of time for good, Morgan heroically shows up with Jim’s old beer truck, ready to help save his friends.  Sarah comments that Jimbo has saved their lives twice now.  Morgan eliminated walker Jimbo back at the police car, but hopefully he can rest in peace knowing that he truly did save his friends.  In a heartwarming moment, Victor also opens up to Alicia and is happy to finally have a new drinking partner, realizing that Madison would want it to be this way.  Morgan does ultimately head back to check on Martha and discovers her bloody arm hanging from the cuff.  Walker Martha is stumbling down the street and Morgan eliminates her as a threat once and for all.  So long Martha.  I can’t say that we’ll miss you.  Everyone is ready to head off to Virginia, but Morgan decides that he doesn’t want to go there anymore and takes them to the Denim Factor that “Polar Bear,” otherwise known as Clayton, used.  Morgan explains that no one is being forced to stay, but that they can truly do something great here.  Alicia adds that they can build this into something more and that’s how you help people, truly trying to reestablish her mother’s vision.  They decide to start with the tapes and find people out there who need their help, allowing Clayton’s work to continue on, holding on to the hope that there is still good in the world.  Even though it seems like they are surrounded by death and despair, Morgan and the others have learned the importance of helping others and that it does matter.  At the end of the episode, Morgan tells anyone who may be listening, “Hang in there.  We’re coming for you,” hopefully sparking the belief in anyone who may have lost their way.  The season finale ends on a positive note, rather than a major cliffhanger, which was actually refreshing.  The whole concept of helping others has been present during season 4 and this was the perfect way to honor that and inspire hope in fans everywhere that Morgan Jones and the rest of the group will continue to try and bring some life back into the world…one box at a time.  Stay tuned!

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.
