So Fear The Walking Dead is back, and it’s back with a very good start. This episode centered and focused on my favorite character of the show, Nick Clark. So i was very happy with that to begin with, this episode also had a lot of interesting encounters with different characters that also involved Nick. He comes across a small horde of walkers, dogs (and both in one situation) and also a group of people with guns and a car. Nick is desperate and alone, but doesn’t quite seem scared, this was just a fantastic episode full of encounters with different groups animals and walkers.
It didn’t drag for me at all and it brings me to think of how different this is to the walking dead, its pretty much AMC’s 2nd walking dead with no comic. It’s a good and a bad thing that it has no comic to hold onto but no comic and material for fans to expect certain things from. So there is no expectations for comic book characters or situations, but at the same time there is no material at hand for support.
There is not too much more to talk about here, Nick had some very interesting encounters which were one of the highlights of the episode for me and he is now with a new community, We had some interesting flashbacks into Nick’s past and we learnt that it’s apparently ok to eat dog meat after it has been perhaps “damaged” or just eaten by walkers, I do however doubt that it’s ok to do the same with human meat. But that’s just my theory.
Like i said there isn’t much to talk about as this was pretty much a bottle episode for Nick with a few other characters but not with the whole group.
This episode delivered on interesting encounters, New characters, New facts, and some awesome action sequences
