As civil unrest grows, and the dead take over, Travis and Madison try to devise ways to protect their families.
Fear the Walking Dead’s sixth and final episode of the season sees all hell breaking loose as the Salazars/Manawas/Clarks decide to assault the military base to free their family.
The episode is an interesting one in that it was both predictable and the directing wasn’t all that great. There was a big battle, the hoard of zombies was used, people were freed, some people were hurt… predictable.
And the directing for most part was odd too. Usually we can expect lots of action, but in this case we see lots of choppiness, and the lights going on and off, obscuring what we see going on. It’s lazy in a way, and we’ve seen so much better for the series.
From all of that action we get this reflection in a way as well, a quick deceleration that was a bit too abrupt and calm considering what they went through.
The choppiness I described also applies to the story itself, which had weird cuts, weird time shifts, and some movement of the characters that didn’t make sense at all, creating a flowing episode whose flow had strange jumps. That jump also applies to the previous episodes as well. Why was Strand being held for instance?
Overall, the episode was rather predictable and attempted to wrap up too many plot points, many foreshadowed. Its result is a rather weak ending that should have had much more emotional punch.
Overall Rating: 6.75
