C’mon, Fear the Walking Dead. Did it’s important to? Did you actually have to? In Sunday’s episode, the AMC drama killed off maybe probably the most beloved character this facet of Canine. And we’re so pissed, we’re gonna want a minute to course of it. Lets spend that minute recapping? Let’s (grr!) give it (grr!) a shot (grr!).
After Sarah wakened post-nuclear blast amongst associates (Al, Charlie, Lucy, Wes, Daniel, all given a few line apiece), she made it her mission to find her long-MIA “twin” brother Wendell. Very quickly, her efforts had drawn the eye of Emile’s twin brother Josiah, who supplied to seek out Wendell for her — in change for Morgan’s precise head to put within the field through which he was carrying round Emile’s zombified one. Sarah, as you’d anticipate her to be, was reluctant, however Josiah wasn’t too eager on taking no or something resembling it for a solution.
Earlier than lengthy, the duo, together with Rufus (who you’ll recall someway got here into Josiah’s possession), ran afoul of a Stalker whose barn stuffed with stripped-down walkers additionally housed… Wendell’s wheelchair! Freaking out, Sarah attacked the man, who in flip let unfastened a bunch of walkers. She then tried to depart Josiah behind, rushing off in his Park Ranger truck. When he nonetheless managed to get into the automobile, she drove it off a cliff with them and Rufus in it.
Would nobody ever freaking take into consideration the canine? It wasn’t like he had a seatbelt!
As a result of that is TV, everybody survived the crash — even Rufus — however they have been trapped within the truck… and proper subsequent to a much-ballyhooed leaky nuclear warhead. What are the chances, proper? Sarah walkie-talkie’d Morgan for assist, however solely as a result of she was certain that Josiah wasn’t actually a killer. (Mmkay… )
When in the end, Morgan arrived to help the unlikely tag crew in warding off walkers, Josiah mentioned that Sarah was proper. He wasn’t going to kill Morgan — Emile was. With that, he pulled out his brother’s head as if to let it chew Morgan. When it was despatched flying within the ensuing dustup, guess who acquired bitten?
Uh-huh. Rufus. “What have I executed?” cried Josiah as we rhetorically cried, “What have you ever executed?” This present… significantly.
After Rufus was buried, Morgan, Sarah and Josiah made tracks to Victor’s tower to see if Wendell was there. And upon arriving, Strand gleefully revealed that not solely was Sarah’s brother there, he was thriving. But when Victor despatched Wendell out to see Sarah, whose loyalty had been missing, in Victor’s estimation, there was no going again.
So Sarah begged Strand to not even inform Wendell that she had been there. She would return to the Pennsylvania with Morgan. And as for Josiah? Properly, he was welcome to affix them, however he most popular to go it alone for some time longer. As a result of in a zombie-infested post-nuclear wasteland, that is sensible.
Lastly, as “Breathe With Me” exhaled for the final time, we realized that the Stalkers, whose goal frankly remained totally unclear, had obtained that leaky nuclear warhead. And nonetheless no Alicia. No Isabelle. However we had time to kill Rufus? Argh. What did you consider the episode? Are you gripped by the way in which that Season 7 is creating? Hit the feedback along with your critiques.
