We are not at the end of our surprises apparently in Fear the Walking Dead. Indeed, in this new episode we follow Alicia, Strand and Luciana in their adventures. We understand then what embodies the characters in this quest for revenge against the Vultures. The series then decides to reveal a little more information, and very well kept secrets are revealed in order to once again break the trick and advance the series. Casually, I feel that Fear the Walking Dead has done more in four episodes than the last season’s first four episodes. It’s not Alicia and Naomi who are talking about papers and rags that will really advance the story but in the rest of the episode there are a lot of good elements that can just please a viewer who may want to see more. The inventiveness of Fear the Walking Dead goes much further as the credits change episodes into episodes in order to highlight the things that should be followed very soon. The episode was full of good surprises from start to finish in order to see a little more of the group’s life at The Diamond. But the way it’s all done has never seemed surreal and it’s very good news, especially when we remember some of the problematic intrigues we’ve seen in Fear the Walking Dead.
The water park is a welcome change of place in the series. I would say that the season would have been much more terrifying if it had happened at night but hey, it’s already well enough done so that we do not have to criticize. If I like the character of Naomi, recently arrived this year, I still have some doubts about his real intentions. She seems to be someone trustworthy but like Charlie finally. Even her innocent conversation with Alicia about the churros leaves me a little pensive about it. I guess Fear the Walking Dead has something in store with her that might implicate her in something much less friendly to our group of characters. But at times, I wonder what justifies the killing of others when behind there is nothing to recover. The back and forth between flashbacks during the episode can still be polarizing for viewers (four episodes straight!), but the story development is quite good so far. Lets hope that there will be less flashbacks for the rest of the season. The water park? I will give it without any problem to the bad guys if it is to have life saved. But in the world of Fear the Walking Dead they could still be killed, even if they do not rebel. It’s still damn strange at times. But man is a wolf for the man. This is what we must remember from this series and his big sister. The big revelation is that Naomi is John’s girlfriend. All this surprised me in the good sense of the term, which allows once again to change the story and characters.
