Fear The Walking Dead returns this week with a brand new episode. “Honey” not only delievered as a great episode, it also explored more of Dwight and Sherry’s reunion. Add in Morgan and Al to the plot as well, and you have a well-rounded episode. Here is my review of “Honey.”
Dwight and Sherry’s reunion is not all love and romance. Emotions and feelings from the past is brought up. Dwight found out that she has been with them for some time now. Dwight wanted Sherry to join him and Morgan to take down Virginia, but she is already planning on doing the same thing. The key difference here, is that Morgan wants to take his strategic time and Sherry does not want to take her time.
The three do clash over their ideas. Even Dwight and Sherry did too. Later in the episode, they both talk about their past with Negan as Sherry is still traumatized and hurt by him. I started to feel bad for Sherry at this moment. As much as I love Negan, he put his “wives” through hell when his reign of terror was at his highest point. Sherry also did not want to see Dwight become the person she seen at The Sanctuary. Even though Dwight did change, his old self did come out for a brief period on “Honey.”
While Dwight was interrogating one of Virginia’s men, I looked at it differently as I would normally would. Dwight was trying to get as much information out of him as possible. It was more of urgency than going back to his old self despite how Sherry and Morgan felt it. The Walking Dead universe is known to push a character above a certain limit. And this is one of those scenes where I felt that they did that.
I also love the action sequence early on when they all got back the S.W.A.T van. It is the most action I have seen on Fear when it came to transportation methods. The sequence was a high stakes mission and it really felt like I was watching a movie for a few minutes.
My take on Morgan and Dwight’s verbal exchange, is that Dwight waited way too long for results. I could not blame him at this point. Mostly because he has heard all of Morgan’s promises and it lead up to this situation. Dwight wants to take down Virginia as much as Morgan does. But I believe that Morgan is going to do this the right way. I can also say that Dwight was also right for stopping Sherry. If Sherry would have killed those rangers, Virginia would have known. Morgan learned this during the war against The Saviors when Jesus wanted him to take that approach. And now, Morgan is Jesus in this situation.
“Honey” is a strong episode. Dwight and Sherry had a lot of catching up to do. And they did even though it hurts to see them on opposite sides again. I also like that Morgan’s arc is living up to what he said at the premiere episode. “Honey” contains action, drama, suspense, and heartbreaking moments all packed in one episode. The streak continues for this amazing season of Fear The Walking Dead.
