Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 9 Review

By Matthew Nemeth


Fear the Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror drama television series created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson that premiered on AMC on August 23, 2015. It is a companion series and prequel to The Walking Dead, which is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard


So Fear The Walking Dead continued this week with another episode, This time with a rather poor and slow episode. So the basics to remember with this is that Madison and Strand end up getting drunk (well mainly Madison) and they end up stuck behind a bar (Sean Of The Dead style, But they have not quite started to fight back yet). Nick had a decent episode wandering around and dealing with a few people that might cut his hand off, It made me think for a moment that Nick was going to get Rick’s moment from the comics, No specific spoilers here.

Not much else really happened in the episode until the end. Alicia found a guy hung in the shower and just continued on and i have already mentioned what the other characters did. So lets get to the good bit, Alicia is looking out from the balcony and starts to see walkers mysteriously start dropping down, Now let’s stop here for a moment to talk about the walkers. To this point i understand them very well, But i couldn’t begin to tell you how they fell over the balcony as the glass that they were falling over seemed particularly high, It’s slightly more obvious as to why they were going to where they were. That’s on you Madison and that piano. So what’s with the sacrifice to walkers scene ? well that’s where i feel that the cliffhanger was just about to tell you, But that’s just my guess.

I really don’t have much more to say about this episode as it was slow, But that’s ok, some episodes will be slow to conserve things for later BUT AMC sure does love their cliffhangers this year, Especially with their zombie shows. I feel AMC should have season 3 as a 10 episode season as they will be having 13 episodes of Preacher next year. So i think after The Walking Dead season 7 finishes, they should follow with Preacher and then after Game Of Thrones finishes it’s 7th fun they should then follow up with Fear The Walking Dead season 3 as i feel that Game Of Thrones is a bad show for Fear to go up against, Or does AMC only really care about ratings for The Walking Dead ?

rating 7.5/10
