Season 1 | Episode 6 | Aired: October 4, 2015
Wow, this took way too long to post. The season finale of Fear The Walking Dead aired almost three weeks ago now and you know what? It was pretty good. Like, it actually had action and walkers and crazy stuff going on. I wasn’t bored out of my mind and now I’m actually kind of excited for season two.
So many craziness happened! The group knows about the military’s plan to abandon the people and make their own plan to evacuate the neighborhood and rescue their missing family members. However, this plan will not be completed easily.
Ofelia gets shot, Alicia and Chris are attacked, Travis unleashes his brutality, and Liza is bitten. No one escaped unscathed during this season finale.
This really was a great episode. Anyone who read my other reviews knows I was starting to lose interest in the show during the past few episodes, but this one brought me back and really solidified season two being a good idea.
We’re really starting to see the brutality of the world now. The past few weeks on the show the characters have been safe inside their homes with the military protecting them. Now the military’s gone and they’re on their own, they’ve experienced what both walkers and people can do and now it’s really about survival.
That’s something I really liked about this episode because while we’ve known all along that it’s all about survival, all the characters finally seemed to realize it. They now know they have to do whatever they can to survive and that the rules of the old world don’t apply anymore.
By the end of the episode it seems like things are going to be alright. Strand (the man who made a deal with Nick in episode five) helped the group to escape to his house and tells Nick of his plan to take his boat out to sea. For a moment it seems like the group will be able to go with him and that they’ll be fine, but then the hammer comes down.
Liza was bit. As they were trying to escape the compound where Nick was being held, Liza was bit by one of the walkers released by Daniel as a distraction so they could get in the building. Travis ends up being the one to kill her and the episode ends with the others hearing the gunshot as Madison tries to comfort him.
I think we all knew someone was going to die. There was no way we were going to have a season finale of anything Walking Dead related and not see a character die. They really teased the deaths of a lot of characters in this episode whether it was Ofelia getting shot or Chris and Alicia being attacked, but in the end it was Liza.
I think this death is definitely going to have a huge affect on the characters next season. We might see Travis becoming sort of like Rick now he’s really been faced with the brutality of the world and I think we’ll see Travis and Chris’s relationship becoming even more strained.
This was actually a really great episode. The cast did an amazing job and the intensity was right up there. I don’t know if I’ll review season two, but I do know that I’m excited to watch it now. I can’t wait to see where the characters end up and what the zombie apocalypse would be like on a boat!
Let me know what you thought of the Fear The Walking Dead season finale!
Do you have any predictions for season two?
