    Talking Through Damage From the Inside



    For this episode 74 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT, Kyle and Brian talk through the Mid-Season Finale Damage From the Inside. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 7 was written by Jacob Pinion and directed by Tawnia McKiernan. We also discuss a little bit about World Beyond Episode 8 titled The Sky Is a Graveyard.



    A Taxidermy Nightmare… well, not really.



    So we get from the start Dakota is being escorted to safety by Strand and his Rangers with one of them looking like Virginia’s Doppelgänger. We don’t know if that was on purpose, or if maybe this actor is Colby Minifie’s stunt double. But in any case, something happens and Strand and Ranger Samuels are pulled away only to come back and everyone is dead and Dakota is missing. Cue, Alicia and Charlie who are just sitting on some outpost and Strand calling for them to help find the missing girl. Then things get strange but visually was fun to see. The creepy hunting lodge, stuffed animals, and a creepy lone survivor who likes to play dress-up with walkers as a way to keep the living away. This wasn’t the best episode this season and finally getting Alicia some screen time was a welcome sign but seemed a wasted opportunity by the showrunners. For a Mid-Season Finale is really lacked some punch and felt like more of a weak attempt at a B-Horror film. We did get to see Alicia finally reunite with Morgan which was a really great scene. Strand is still sticking to his conman ways and I guess we did get some sort of payoff with the whereabouts of Grace. In the end, with knowing that Covid interrupted their plans and the real Mid-Season finale wasn’t finished we just hope the back half, when it returns, pays off.

    Talking Through Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg



    For this episode 73 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT, Kyle and Brian talk through Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 6 was written by Alex Delyle and directed by Sharat Raju. We also discuss a little bit about World Beyond Episode 7 titled Truth or Dare.



    June you had your chance and you didn’t take it! AARGH!



    Wow, in the episode it looked like the tides would turn for our group but kind of was surprised on June’s decision. I’m not sure if it was a power move or a stupid one and seemed to put a wedge between her and John in the end. We are reunited with Luciana and while its good to see her alive and working Tank Town but the apparent sabotage by The End is the Beginning people really looks like a death throw to Ginny and the rest of the settlements. No Oil, No Life! I can only imaging this is going to make everyone’s relationship on both sides more tense. This season so far has been getting better and better so I just hope that continues.

    Talking Through Honey



    For this episode 72 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT, Kyle and Brian talk through Honey. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 5 was written by Ashley Cardiff and directed by Michael E. Satrazemis. We also discuss a little bit about World Beyond Episode 6 titled Shadow Puppets. Kyle fixes his mistake and we included Brian’s Ratings, Sauces for last episode of The Key and hopefully can get him out of the doghouse



    Sherry is not so sweet but we don’t blame her after all she’s been through!



    In this episode, we see Dwight and Sherry together again but that doesn’t last so long. Sherry has been with a mask-wearing group of Ginny misfits with plans to try and rid the apocalypse of her but again Morgan seems to come out of nowhere to spread his word of a place where they all can be safe… again lol. We do get some insight on how bad Negan’s scars are on our crossover characters and I really did enjoy seeing that even if it was brief. In the end, Dwight sides with Morgan and AL and Sherry decides that she’s just not ready to walk away from her new friend’s plans.

    Talking Through The Key



    For this episode 71 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT, Kyle and Brian talk through The Key. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 4 was written by David Johnson and directed by Ron Underwood. We also discuss a little bit about World Beyond Episode 5 titled The Madman Across the Water. We had some issues this week when trying to record and Kyle couldn’t make it due to work and other issues so everyone recorded their own parts and Kyle edited together so it’s a little different but in the end it worked out fine.



    BRIAN’S NOTE:



    Actually, everything did NOT work out fine. Most of my segments were left out of the recording this week, due to a lack some confusion as far as how many segments I had recorded, although a few of them were read by Kyle. I had recorded a segment for each segment we have in the episode. My rating was 9.4/10, which I believe was one of the things left off. I’ll have to go back and update this after I do.



    John Dorie gets pushed to the limits!



    In this episode, John Dorie seems to be adjusting to this new Ginny controlled world and top cop of Lawton. That all changes with the murder of another citizen of Lawton and Sherif John is on the case. But we are not in a right vs wrong kind of world and in the end, Ginny is the one who calls the shots. This pushes him to his limits and we see again that there is no justice in the ZA. Morgan is looking for Grace and has Rufus the bloodhound on his side but he gets derailed by those two tagger boys. This does finally clarify that whatever that Key that Morgan has is going to be something important but to whom? Again, Fear the Walking Dead just keeps getting better and better and there is still so much more to come.

Next time, we’ll cover feedback we get for S6E5 Honey, and then briefly talk through any feedback for The Walking Dead: World Beyond S1E6, titled Shadow Puppets.

    Ratings for S6E4 The Key were down from the last episode, S6E3 Alaska. This week, Fear was able to get a 0.31 in the 18-49 demographic, with 1.276 million viewers, down from 0.39 and 1.501 million viewers. World Beyond S1E5 Madman Across the Water got a 0.18 in the 18-49 demographic with 742,000 thousand viewers, down from 0.28 and 1.020 million viewers last week.

    Talking Through Alaska



    For this episode 70 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT, Kyle and Brian talk through Alaska. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 3 was written by Mallory Westfall, and directorial return of Colman Domingo. We also discuss a little bit about World Beyond Episode 4 titled The Wrong End of a Telescope.



    AL and Dwight go for a walk and find love!



    In this episode, we are paired with Al and Dwight on one of Ginny’s errands roaming around who knows where to document the fall of civilization. Not that we don’t already know that most didn’t survive, but I guess that doesn’t stop Ginny’s giving out some ZA busy work. This was a good episode focused on Al and Dwight’s budding friendship and their struggles with this new reality that our group has been in since the Ginny takeover. AL is still stalking Isabelle on the walkie that leads them to some office dwellers who seem to not have moved on outside of their workplace. In any case, we get some highs and lows but overall a really good character-driven episode, again. Fear is running on all cylinders and this is a great thing this season. Oh, and we get a surprise (well did we not already know this was going to happen, at some point?) at the end that I know for one, got me a little misty-eyed.

    Talking Through Welcome to the Club



    For this episode 69 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT, Kyle and Brian talk through Welcome to the Club. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 2 was written by Nazrin Choudhury, and directed by none other than Lennie James. We also discuss a little bit about World Beyond Episode 3 titled The Tyger and the Lamb.



    Strand and Alicia get put in a sticky situation!



    In this episode, we get Alicia and Strand and Ginny enacting some punishment for their defiance towards one of her Rangers. Only to be sent on a mission… well punishment… to clean out some sticky walkers from a warehouse that Ginny has some interest in. Dear old Charlie returns; Kyle still does not like her but it’s nice seeing some of the group being united after all this time. Daniel shows up cutting Ginny’s hair but after some pleas from Alicia and Strand, it would seem he’s suffered some mental damage at the hands of Ginny’s men. (Yeah Right!)



    It was a good episode and from the feedback, our listeners enjoyed it as much as we did, well mostly all our listeners. It’s nice seeing the show come back to elements of what we loved about this show from past seasons. Show us the characters we love and do it in a character-driven way. This season does seem to have some promise and that makes us happy.
