Fear the Walking Dead continued to lift the present’s Season 7 physique depend with Sunday’s episode — and rapidly, too. Guess we’ve gotta make room for Kim Dickens’ return as Madison one way or the other, eh?
As “Sonny Boy” started, Strand threw one “traitor” after one other over the facet of his much-ballyhooed Tower. However that was only a precursor to what was to come back as extras quickly had been swapped out for collection regulars.
After Victor’s right-hand man Howard was discovered to have a walkie-talkie in his room — a giant no-no to his paranoid boss — Strand tasked each him and John Sr. with discovering the instantly lacking child Mo. As a result of that made sense, certain. Anyway, if Howard didn’t retrieve the tot earlier than dawn, it was off the roof for him!
Shortly, John Sr. stumbled on June with the child in a soon-flooded tunnel that had extra walkers in it than exits. She’d must name her companion in mutiny for assist, he instructed her. So reluctantly, she phoned Grace… simply as Howard caught the duo baby-handed. Not that Strand noticed it that approach. In his estimation, John Sr. had recovered Mo, not Howard. So he challenged John Sr. to show his loyalty by sending Howard plummeting off the roof.
At that, John Sr. confessed that he’d planted the walkie-talkie in Howard’s room. Cool, mentioned Strand, in essence. Ship him over the sting, anyway, or he’d carry up June or Grace to take a flying leap. Confronted with that unimaginable proposition, John Sr. despatched Howard hurtling towards his doom, then dove right into a bottle of booze himself.
Later, Victor remanded Mo to his sole custody and charged John Sr. with holding anybody from taking the child. In response, John Sr. knocked out the megalomaniac and delivered the tyke safely to Morgan outdoors the Tower by means of a cockamamie scheme that concerned Howard’s swimsuit of armor and sufficient time to say lengthy goodbyes however not sufficient to smear oneself with walker goop. Mmkay.
As Morgan stalked away together with his namesake, John Sr., who already had radiation poisoning a la Charlie and had been newly bitten by a walker, stayed behind to get devoured by the undead. (I do know he was making an attempt to purchase Morgan a while to get away, however rattling. Should you had been Morgan, wouldn’t you have got at the very least tried to counsel your pal allow you to put him down much less painfully?) Lastly, over the ever-present walkie-talkies, Strand warned that if Morgan attacked the Tower, he would retaliate — he did, in any case, nonetheless have beneath his roof Grace and June, to not point out Wes as an obvious successor to Howard.
So yeah, all that occurred. What’s your tackle “Sonny Boy” and its casualties? Who will even be left at season’s finish?
