Season 3, Episode 15-16 – It was a tense, though flawed, conclusion to the shows finest season yet.

Season 3, Episode 13 – In an intense, claustrophobic episode, Alicia Debnam-Carey, a character too often sidelined, takes center stage. And kills it.
Season 3, Episodes 9-10 – Fear the Walking Dead returned with entertaining back-to-back episodes that reunited characters and further divided others.
Season 3, Episodes 7-8 – The final two episodes before the mid-season break, we got some surprising twists and one big return of a character who has been suspiciously missing all season!
Season 3, Episode 5 – We get some great character development and relationship building in this episode of Fear the Walking Dead, which is making for its strongest season yet.
Season 3, Episode 1-2 – It’s an action-packed if mostly predictable start to Fear the Walking Dead‘s third season, with plenty of gore. And we say goodbye to one major character.
Season 2, Episode 20-21 – The two hour finale of the second season felt like one large episode that brought us to some of the darkest places we’ve been on this show–or its sister series–yet. Cliffhangers abound but there were some tremendous payoffs that make the episodes worth the watch.
Fear the Walking Dead turns to faith when it comes to accepting the world of “Los Muertos.” There are four major movements for this week’s story: The Abigail is missing, Strand and Madison get drunk and invite every zombie to brunch, Nick gets involved with the faith movement at his new colony, and Alicia gets separated from Ofelia when she stops for a shower.
And we’re back! The mid-season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead was a very Nick-centric episode. The episode did bring some great suspenseful moments, allowed the character of Nick to develop a bit, and shed some light on the history of the Clark family and how their world was shattered long before the zombie apocalypse even happened.
Fear The Walking Dead gets some life breathed into it with Strand’s backstory, a boat invasion, and a few new characters.
Last night’s finale, though, gave us plenty of guts and gore to hold us over until season two. Particularly the soldier who was bitten and ran unknowingly around a helicopter into it’s whirling blade, dicing his head satisfyingly in a splatter of blood. That was awesome.
I’m not quite sure why the title of the series is called Fear The Walking Dead when the dead are so sparsely seen throughout its first 5 episodes that it’s difficult to fear them for more than a minute at a time. What we’re really left to fear are human beings, soldiers and citizens, and after this last episode, that might not be cutting it.
It’s funny that right when things were heating up to a good level of tension and intrigue, the Fear the Walking Dead creators decided to jump us ahead a week or so in the fourth installment of the first season, deescalating what they’d taken their time building in the first three episodes. But it’s for the best.
The third episode of freshman series Fear the Walking Dead was a strong, if predictable, showing. Still, I’m inclined to think the creators do have some tricks up their sleeves for us, and am eager to see how their short six-episode season rounds out.
