Fear The Walking Dead’s sixth season started with Morgan’s Group separated. The story that followed that was with the conflict with Virginia’s group and the death of John Dorie. The season concluded with the warheads dropping in the area while the group is separated again.

I can tolerate it this time unlike the disaster of the season five finale. This time, I am looking forward to what is coming in season seven. Now that the bomb dropped, everyone will have to figure out a way to adapt to the radiation environment. Unlike how they encountered this on the previous season, the whole area is contaminated.

There are some really great moments that I love. The opening with Rachel was sad and dark for all of the wrong reasons. Nobody could save her after her injury and she had no choice but to kill herself. The dog did manage to use a walker to bring Morgan jr. to Morgan. I would want to question how this logically happened, but I let it pass because my next question is coming up.

I must be the only one happy to finally see Sherry and Dwight together for good. I completely understood why it took time for their bond to go back to the way it was before the apocalypse. It was Negan that caused all of the trauma for her. She can finally move on with Dwight. Also, good thing that they killed those people that stolen the home owner’s basement.

Despite my feelings about Dakota, she received one of the best deaths in the series. Standing face forward of the bomb blast fried her to death and I loved it. I am also curious whether if we will see Daniel, Luciana, Charlie, Sarah, and Wes ever again since they are picked up by CRM. If we do see them again, hopefully it is at one of CRM’s locations.

The bomb drop on the finale also said “f*** them kids” from season five as they were nowhere to be seen during the whole season. And Strand’s speech before and after the bomb dropped is a masterclass of acting from Colman Domingo.

And finally, am I supposed to buy that Morgan and Grace is safe from the bomb blast by hiding under the car? Clearly Morgan Jr. is now dead from the blast. Everyone else was sheltered and they were not. Morgan and Grace must have a ton of radiation in their bodies now.

Overall, a great episode to close out the sixth season. I must say that Fear The Walking Dead bounced back in a good way as they really put the fear back on this show that was needed. In my opinion, this is a can’t miss season!
