Fear The Walking Dead’s Sarah caught my interest since her debut a few seasons ago. But the character has not been fleshed out. On today’s episode of Fear, it is my favorite involving the character.
While Sarah was looking for Wendell, she encountered Josiah. I find it a sheer coincidence that they found each other this quick. But the encounter did impact the story told for this episode. It is a good thing that Strand assured Sarah that Wendell is okay. But can we honestly believe him since we have not seen his body?
Speaking of which, I like the fakeout they did in the episode as I was believed that Wendell was devoured. But as I learned with TV tropes, until I see a body, nothing is confirmed. But Rufus getting bitten gives me flashbacks to Shiva being devoured on the main show.
Even though they appeared for a few minutes, it is good to know that the other characters such as Charlie, Lucianna, and AL are doing fine and that they watched over Sarah. Mo Collins did great during this episode! I wondered why it took them this long to showcase her full potential.
I am really curious on why Strand is written this way. It is becoming difficult to believe that Strand will evolve into a different character every episode. He wouldn’t be this ruthless and evil, though it was better than riding hot air balloons. It’s almost cartoon-like. I find it so petty that he can dictate who can enter his building. He now has a ruthless lackey who was originally a shy guy in the season six finale. It’s hard to believe that.
With the criticisms aside, this episode is solid and one of the best this season!
