Talking Through Handle With Care

We’re late this time out, but for this episode 78 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT talk through the mid-season premiere Handle With Care. Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 10 was written by Ashley Cardiff & David Johnson and directed by co-executive producer Heather Cappiello.

Daniel! Daniel?

After complaining that we haven’t had enough Rubén Blades this season, we get a big Daniel Salazar episode this week. Unfortunately, by the end of the episode, our former Salvadoran torturer has yet again been made toothless by the showrunners, and we’re not talking about his shocking bridge plate. This one was an interesting episode, with some issues. How did Daniel do all this without getting detected by anyone else? Or was he framed? Only time will tell.

This season, collecting feedback has been challenging, and we could use your help. Our availability is limited for each of us on Tuesdays when the bulk of the feedback comes in. We have to grab it from the various sources, including the Facebook group, the feedback form, email, and voice mail; put it into a Google doc; separate it into the appropriate sections of the podcast: Ratings, sauces, and feedback; and then fix things like spelling mistakes, grammar, and format, and then divide it by who will read it. If you are available most Tuesdays that we have an episode to record and want to help the podcast out, please drop us a line, either using the feedback form, the Facebook group, or if you are friends with us on Facebook, over Messenger. We’ll work out something if you can.

    Another good banner selection for the week; it was nice to see Daniel get this episode to himself basically after being away for so long!

    It’s okay Brian, you tried; it’s like the show “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” always mentioning the movies but the movies never threw the show a bone by having even a small nod to it in there. All those films and they couldn’t once mention the show or events in it in passing?! The show literally gave the universe Inhumans but sure let’s just ignore that – it was insulting you know? I understand, like the movies, TWD is the main property but still if you’re going to push it on another series the least you could do since this is suppose to be a universe and not a glaring spin off (we actually take place before the break out so arguably TWD is post us) is have a mention here or there on the main show; seriously how hard would it be for them to find a tape the group made (they don’t even have to watch it just find it!)? John Dorie died so maybe someone finds his cabin but you don’t have to interact with the character now of course. You could legit have a character who strayed from our pack be on the main show for a quick arc like they’re doing Sherry here, it’s not that hard! I just don’t like the one sided feel to it all if that makes sense?

    “If someone else was here…” – you mean like Kyle?! Miss you Kyle. We’ll see you soon hopefully! 🙂

    TOTALLY agree with LT, Daniel is innocent!

    Here’s an idea also regarding the gun shed – lockpick; you know some thieves survived this long. Ha

    “Maybe Charlie is her probation officer.” – 😂😂😂! That may be a better one than even Ranger Dingus. Ha.

    “Why the f*ck has he waited so long to go get it?!” – 👏👏👏👏👏 Brian; it’s especially stupid because he was going to take Grace to the dam he said after finding her so yes, why is all her stuff still at the water tower as many times as you’ve been out doing who knows what Morgan? Things like this is why there should be no leader, they’re all stupid when the plot needs.

    Austrian combat Tupperware, lol LT is on a roll tonight I see. 🙂

    “I just don’t trust the algorithm!” – FAIR!
