Although questions nonetheless hold over Fear the Strolling Useless like these zombie heads that our survivors maintain discovering dangling above them, Sunday’s episode offered not less than a couple of solutions — concerning the results of radiation on walkers, concerning the new character that Galavant’s Karen David is taking part in and particularly about whether or not Strand and Daniel’s reunion was going to go as badly as we’d anticipated. (Brief reply: probably not.) The hour additionally appeared to seal the destiny of not less than one unlucky character. Which? Learn on…
‘JUST KNOW THAT I TRIED’ | Since apparently there aren't any Put up-Its left on the earth, Strand started “The Harm That Will Occur” videotaping a message to tell his pals that he’d gone seeking “Skidmark,” which turned out to not be a nickname of Daniel’s however the title of his cat. (And never that Daniel was ever Mr. Good Man, however who the hell attaches to their furry companion’s collar a bell that’s positive to draw walkers?) After a tense second throughout which Strand needed to plead together with his archenemy to not act on impulse and shoot him on sight, Daniel ushered him right into a hangar filled with automobiles that he’d “inherited.” From… ? Yeah, no, there could be no small discuss and braiding one another’s hair for these two. So Strand bought right down to enterprise: Al had despatched him to search out Daniel as a result of their pals — Daniel’s pals, too — wanted his aircraft. Madison? Nicely, not her. Nick? Uh… no. However hey, Alicia was nonetheless alive, stated Strand, including that that they had “an ineluctable accountability to those that stay.” At that, Strand known as BS. “Why can’t you be trustworthy?” he requested. You need the aircraft “for you and nobody else.”
In the meantime, on the crash website, Morgan, John and Alicia found no signal of Al or the uniformed walker that had so piqued her curiosity. What’s extra, all the weapons and ammo that ought to’ve been within the wreckage had been gone. Again on the truck cease, Lucy might really feel neither the fingers of 1 hand (owing to her harm) nor any ache (due to the medication June had her on). “When will I be capable to play the accordion?” requested the affected person. “You play the accordion?” June replied. “I used to be considering of studying,” stated Lucy. So yeah, these had been good medication. When John returned, included in his small haul was a pocket book of Polar Bear’s and the copy of The Little Prince that had survived a lot. Subsequent factor we knew, the lovebirds had taken off to search for Al, the children, whoever, and Lucy was left behind with a gun that she was positive she might function one-handed if want be. Nonetheless looking out about, Morgan and Alicia discovered their path blocked by extra radiation indicators and, close by, an official-looking car whose engine was nonetheless heat.
‘TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES’ | Turned out, the car belonged to Grace (Karen David), who’d labored at a pressurized water reactor 13 miles to the north. When its cooling system had failed, it had killed a whole lot of the staff who’d sought refuge there post-apocalypse. Now Grace, rocking a hazmat go well with, was attempting to rigorously dispatch the radioactive walkers, lest they contaminate anybody else. (They had been identifiable by the dosimeter doohickeys they wore and additionally by the truth that a few of ’em appeared like extras from The Poisonous Avenger.) In fact, she didn’t get to inform any of that to Morgan and Alicia till after he’d sticked a radioactive walker, which means that she’d need to decontaminate each survivors and — d’oh! — confiscate his stick (since wooden is porous and can’t be adequately cleaned). As for the walker blockade Morgan and Alicia discovered within the season premiere, that hadn’t been Grace. Acquired all that? Now then, because the trio set off for the crash website in order that Grace might see if any of the walkers they’d felled had been sporting dosimeters, John and June occurred upon a Camp Cackleberry signal and hoped that perhaps the children had gone again there.
Whereas the sweethearts poked across the camp, its solely residents showing to be a cabin filled with walkers, Morgan, Alicia and Grace fought zombies on the crash website. Afterwards, Grace yelled at Alicia for risking her life to take down what might’ve probably been an extra-lethal radioactive walker. Not that she didn’t perceive a certain quantity of remorseful rage. She’d identified the radioactive walkers earlier than they’d been walkers, a lot much less radioactive, and felt liable for having tried to maintain the plant going previous the purpose the place their infrastructure might assist it. “I couldn’t maintain them then,” she stated, sounding already like she’d slot in completely with our heroes, “so I've to maintain them now.” Simply then, John radioed that he and June might need discovered a bunch of radioactive walkers: Earlier than turning, it appeared the cabin walkers had burned up an entire mess of ’em and had gotten sick because of this. “Because of this nobody else can kill them,” stated Grace. “These folks had been uncovered. They thought they had been defending themselves.”
‘YOU CAN’T PUT A WEAPON BETWEEN YOU AND LOSING PEOPLE’ | Again at Daniel and Skidmark’s place, Strand tried and failed to succeed in any of his friends on the radio, prompting his nemesis to query whether or not he was actually the do-gooder he now claimed to be. “I’m not the identical man that I used to be in Mexico,” Victor insisted. Uh-huh, Daniel replied. “You do have a brand new haircut.” Finally, Lucy reached Strand on the radio, and the 2 of them had been capable of play “Who’s lacking?” and so on. earlier than the winds knocked out the long-range antenna outdoors of the truck cease. Whereas she foolishly attracted walkers by testing her one-handed purpose on a couple of of the undead, Daniel, now conscious that Strand was telling the reality, led him to… what? The exit?!? “Our pals need assistance,” Ofelia’s father agreed. “However not from you.” Strand solely damage folks when he tried to assist them. “Nobody is aware of that higher than I do,” Daniel added earlier than firing two photographs within the air and warning, “If you happen to come again, the subsequent one will likely be in your face.”
Again at Camp Cackleberry, Alicia admitted to Morgan that Grace had been proper — she had wished to take down walkers, whatever the threat. Doing so, she thought, was her solely means of contributing. “Each walker I kill, that’s one much less harmful factor on the market.” In any other case, she wasn’t serving to anyone, even Al. At that, Morgan heard a kindred spirit: Alicia was, as he’d as soon as been, caught. However she wasn’t locked in, he insisted. “The best way out is opening the door, to folks, to risk, to [the title of the episode].” As soon as he’d completed that, his life began over, and hers would, too. Because the episode drew to a detailed, our heroes volunteered to assist Grace discover the radioactive walkers. Then, after they’d retrieved Al and the children, perhaps Grace might be part of them. Sadly, that wouldn’t work. After the accident on the plant, she’d gone again in, and although she’d been cautious… nicely… she didn’t understand how for much longer she had left and didn’t wish to put anybody else in danger. So she’d eliminate the our bodies herself earlier than she succumbed.
Again on the truck cease, June woke up an unconscious Lucy, who was shocked to find that the walkers who’d been coming her means now had their heads hanging from a billboard. The final consensus was that whoever saved making walker-head ornaments was attempting to scare them — maybe, June guessed, as a result of they had been getting near one thing. However what? So, ideas? Wasn’t Strand and Daniel’s reunion calmer than you anticipated, contemplating the final time they had been in the identical room, the previous shot the latter within the face? Hit the feedback.
