    Right up until they parked a 10 million dollar boat only to return days later and wonder why it had been stolen ...during the FRICKEN ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

    People didn't like Nick in the beginning yet having a character who's a reformed drug addict and discovers he enjoys the rush of covering himself in zombie goo and walking with zombies, was an example of good writing I thought.

    Right around the time they went to that compound in Mexico and the cast literally split up in five different ways for no reason at all, killing a few members in the process...is where it went off the rails IMO.

    And things like pushing Travis out of a helicopter in episode two of a season...really points to things going on behind the scenes that have NOTHING to do with the intended plot.

    He was on the Talking Dead right after and he couldn't even talk about his exit without humming and hawing and trying to come up with a non confrontational answer. He was hiding something for sure.

    Yeah, it was ridiculous when they split everyone up and had 3498502374698374 different story lines all going on at once. It became a mess. And then this season they "re-invent' themselves with being The Tryhard Helpers and still making dumb mistake after dumb mistake. You would think that by this time living through a zombie apocalypse you would learn to not trust ANYTHING.

    I went back and forth with the podcasting chick because she felt at a certain stage people would become more altruistic and attempt to rebuild society through...helping.

    She is a longtime fan of the comic books and a Day One watcher and writer covering TWD for years, so she knows her stuff. She's the one who came up with the idea (about a year ago) to use the zombies as perpetual motion machines and it finally appears on the last episode.

    I agree with you and her to certain degrees. Societies would form out of necessity and then break down out of humanity...Woodbury was cool on TWD and so was Terminus.

    Hell, people hated season two of TWD and Hershel's farm..but I loved the idea that an old doctor would still see people as people and try to preserve his relatives. When they opened those barn doors I thought it was a very realistic moment considering they had lived alone on that farm for about a year after it started.

    ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Boldly Pivots Back To Making No Sense

    Paul Tassi, Senior Contributor - Forbes




    Last week on Fear the Walking Dead, actual things happened! Logan was killed! There’s a new villain group with mysterious symbols and goals! Could Fear finally be turning things around?

    No, no, probably not.

    As evidenced by last night’s episode, the show is still writing itself off a cliff. We were back to focusing on Morgan again (I swear him being gone was what made last week’s episode somewhat tolerable) and he runs into yet another person trying to escape from the new Big Bads, Virginia and her horse crew.

    Al hears from the guy that this new group is always talking about the future, so she immediately assumes they have something to do with the helicopter people and her brief makeout buddy from earlier in the season. Turns out they have literally nothing to do with each other, as Virginia explains, because they barely even just got gas, so how the hell would they be flying helicopters around?

    What I remain confused about after this entire episode is that all Virginia and her group seem to be doing is…setting up settlements around the area. Like, that’s it. They have their horses and keys on a map, but from what I can tell all they’re really doing is trying to set up communities and rebuild, pretty much the same thing all groups are doing now, whether it was Madison and her baseball stadium or Rick and his communities over in Virginia.



    The difference being here is that she’s…evil about it? She executes Logan and his team when they stop being helpful. She’s apparently tried to kill two different people who were inspired to run away. I’m not sure what exactly is so controversial about building communities that it requires mass capital punishment, but this gang seems kind of rinky-dink compared to other villains in series history, and I think it’s too bad that they weren’t connected to the helicopter people, as that would have actually been interesting.

    Weirder still is how Morgan and Al react to all this. Morgan seems genuinely charmed by them by the end (they fixed his stick!) even though he knows that they just murdered Logan and have been hunting this guy they just tried to help for some unspecified reason.

    I don’t understand any of this, and not in a “hmm what an interesting mystery” kind of way, but rather nothing we’re being shown and the way the characters are reacting to it makes much sense at all. And to top it all off, we have Grace at the end saying that her cancer alarm is going off all of a sudden and Morgan realizes he was a jerk to her, so now we have to deal with her dying and Morgan getting in his sadness cycle all over again. Will we see the return of Crazy Morgan (for the fifth time)? God I hope not. Or hope so. Honestly, I don’t even know at this point.

    This was a bizarre, bland, boring episode that does not give me much hope for this supposed “big” surprise that’s supposed to be happening at the end of season 5 to make season 6 interesting, but I guess we’ll see. I have absolutely no faith that Fear can improve under its current showrunners, and every time I think I see a glimmer of hope it’s snuffed out by the following week.
