FTWDTT 062 – You’re Still Here (S5E11)
You’re Still Here Talking Through You’re Still Here!
On this episode of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Mark, and I talk through You’re Still Here. Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 11 was written by the Mallory Westfall & Alex Delyle, and directed by K.C. Colwell.
We start with a discussion of the last episode… that also discusses this one
Normally, when we get feedback about the past week’s episode, we try to stick to last week and prior episode discussion, but we found ourselves relating Aaron’s feedback to the episode we had just seen. Normally, we give you the time that we start talking about this week’s episode in case you want to skip ahead, but I’ll say that it’s worth listening to a lot of that discussion to get insights about this week. That aside, discussion about this episode begins at 35 minutes 44 seconds into the episode.
The good, the bad and the ugly
There were a few things I really liked about this episode. I enjoyed the use of the riot gear weapons and the first shot of the cold open and a few tie ins to past episodes. I also liked the confrontation between Logan and Morgan, and there are signs that Al may be able to help Morgan finally get past the loss of his family, which he has just got to snap out of at this point.
On the other hand, the stuff with Wes and the mystery manuscript connaisseur, while well-acted, was weak to downright confusing. I said on the podcast that it felt like the writers declaring their love of some screenplay or TV pilot they had written that never got made. And why Wes would kill a guy over the manuscript and just leave it there with him… was a, “what did I just see?” kind of moment. I just didn’t buy it, and neither did we or any of you that sent in feedback. Even now, I still don’t get it. It didn’t feel right. I also think they screwed up Alicia being screwed up. She should be traumatized by certain gnarly walkers, like the first one we see this episode, not all of them.
