Talking Through Things Left to Do

We’re late this time out, but for this episode 77 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT talk through the mid-season premiere Things Left to Do. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 9 was written by Nick Bernardone and directed by co-executive producer Michael E. Satrazemis.


Again, for the second week in a row, there are major spoilers in this episode, so if you haven’t seen this episode of Fear the Walking Dead, stop now!!! Go watch it and then come back and listen to us! This time, our main villain so far this season, Virginia (Ginny) was killed, by none other than John’s wife, June. This one was a tense episode, with lots of action, drama, and conflict, but it wasn’t without issues.

    Awesome banner selection for this week! 🙂

    Personally I could have done without the zombie John kill so I would have been fine with it airing originally but I get it – COVID has messed up a lot.

    Anti Madison camp? I don’t understand these words. Ha!

    What I mean Brian by season four being the worse is definitely 4B more than anything; yes it had some good content with “Weak” but the fact they had the nerve to say to us gas doesn’t work just because it gets into the dirt and the whole beer thing and just the stupidity of Morgan at times dealing with the woman, I couldn’t do it. Add that to the fact they killed Madison and stole the show from Kim (yeah I said it, they did her dirty) and yeah it was just garbage! True season four for us Maggie Grace as Al and Jenna Elfman as June but they could have been introduced arguably in any season; also while Dwight is fun the more I see on him and I can even deal with Sherry I don’t like the forcing in of TWD characters – just merge already if this is where we’re going! I don’t watch red as you know but did we ever get mentioned over there? I don’t think so so the fact we have TWD influencing us but it hasn’t been the other way around before a merger that just feels like some disrespect to Fear you know? But yeah the writing for choices characters made in season four B and just some plots in general was just so bad.

    Lol at Ranger Dingus.

    Concept Pitch: solar powered MRAP! Ha. 🙂

    They hit you for copyright with the Sherry bit but not the “Price Is Right” theme?

    👏 to Brian again for the share this week!

    #BringBackMadison! 🙂 Again I feel Kim would do it for the fans, but her agent is going to make Gimple also pay to use her – rightfully so; again they did her dirty so I support the high pay to get more ratings instead of giving them a discount because “it’s for the fans and the character”.

    Sad trombone is more fitting for a down rated episode.

    To answer your original beginning question Brian – the audio was great!
