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:


“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!


“I can’t stay here.”

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

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


“I’m gonna help these people.”

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


“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!

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

Mo Collins as Sarah Rabinowitz on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead.  So I mostly know Mo Collins from the days of MADtv and she was beyond hilarious on that comedy sketch show.  If you have never watched it before, try looking up sketches with Stuart and his mom (played by Collins).  They will make you cry from laughing so hard. 

I was a little surprised when I saw Collins join the cast of Fear TWD, but I have to say that she immediately fit right in and she always keeps the laughs coming, which can really help break up some of the drama and heavy moments on the show.  Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

In season 5 episode 13, we get to see a different side of funny Sarah, as she actually shares some of her regrets about leaving Clayton to die on the side of the road.  Sarah may typically laugh everything off, but she takes down her walls in this episode and attempts to redeem her past actions by going back for Logan. 

Whether this is the right call or not, it just made me admire Sarah so much more as a character.  It’s one thing to say you are sorry about something, but it takes a lot of courage and strength to actually channel that regret into action.  Sarah’s decision to go back after Logan could have had some irreparable consequences, but she seemed willing to sacrifice it all to make things right and I think that is truly commendable.

Sarah’s bond with her adoptive brother, Wendell, is also something to be noted and it looks like she is getting closer with Dwight, as the two shared a beer and talked briefly about his quest to find Sherry in a prior episode.  Sarah is clearly an integral part of the group, but it was nice to see her stand out in episode 13, truly getting some much deserved screen time.

What’s next for Sarah?  We’ll have to wait and see, but she is definitely heading down the right path.  Our group is focusing so much on helping others and Sarah is absolutely doing her part.  I would personally like to see even more character development for Sarah because she has proven that she is much more than the comic relief. 

We all have things we are not proud of, but Sarah is doing her best to live with her past mistakes and I hope she “keeps on trucking” because I think she still has a lot of untapped potential.  I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!
