FTWDTT 056 – The End of Everything (S5E5)
Talking Through The End of Everything
On this episode 56 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and Kyle are joined again by our special guest co-host Mark from The Walking Dead Talk Through, as we talk through Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 5, which is titled, The End of Everything. This was written by co-showrunners Andrew Chambliss & Ian Goldberg, and directed by co-executive producer Michael E. Satrazemis.
We have more feedback for last week’s episode… S5E5 coverage starts at 13:35…
Before we get into this week’s episode, we have to share more feedback we received for last week’s episode, S5E4 Skidmark. Discussion on this week’s episode starts at 13 minutes and 35 seconds into the podcast.
Althea’s Backstory and The Bog
We get to learn a bit about why Althea’s so determined to get the story and at least a part of the story that was The Bog. She chased the story instead of staying with her brother. We get some insights about the group with the helicopter that we also see that takes away Rick on The Walking Dead. If they are trying to rebuild civilization, why are they killing anyone they come in contact with? For that matter, to take it down to basic survival, since a civilization needs people, not to mention more people being born, why would you kill someone who can have children? Why not recruit her? I don’t get it. This episode just made me ask a lot more questions about them than it answered.
An impossible relationship?
Yes, it was obvious that there was an attraction between Althea and Isabelle, but the whole “I’m going to kill you but I can’t ’cause I love you” vibe I just couldn’t get into. If the actors weren’t as strong this episode, I would not have given a much lower rating to this episode, but I liked the ending and in the end, I liked it more than I could have. Kyle and Mark liked it more than I did.
FTWD Ratings are up slightly…
This week, FTWD ratings sunk to a new low in the 18-49 demographic. S5E5 The End of Everything got a 0.46 in the 18-49 demographic with 1.708 million viewers, up from the last week‘s 0.45 and 1.655 million viewers. Again, there was no Talking Dead this week so no ratings for it.
That’s it for The End of Everything!
The End of Everything didn’t wow us. We liked it, but no one loved it.
