Talking Through The Holding & In Dreams

We’re very, VERY late this time out, but for this episode 79 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT talk through two episodes of Fear the Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 11, titled The Holding, which was written by Channing Powell and directed by K.C. Colwell, and Season 6 Episode 12, titled In Dreams, which was written by Andrew Chambliss & Ian Goldberg & Nazrin Choudhury and directed by Michael E. Satrazemis.

Land of the Crazies?

We first discuss Season 6 Episode 11 The Holding, which members of our gang go undercover to meet the underground bad guys. Wes finds out his brother didn’t die, but has instead taken up with this underground cult. We also meet the charismatic Teddy and his from death brings life.

We then discuss Season 6 Episode 12 In Dreams, which was a very different episode than the preceding one. Grace is in a dream state after an explosion, as she’s going into labor with her baby. This is an uplifting episode until the very end, when it delivers the worst of gut punches.

    I like the banter combo for this double release. ๐Ÿ™‚

    “The Holding”

    We’ll miss you Kyle!

    A GREAT pep talk Renee! ๐Ÿ‘

    Imagine if they used Alicia more on the series instead of pushing Morgan so much…good dreams.

    Awe a DS9 reference. ๐Ÿ™‚

    “Fallout” reference! ๐Ÿ‘ LT.

    Al just doesn’t want Alicia to get jealous when she finds out about Isabel. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    “In Dreams”

    Holy crap, I didn’t even think how it was Mother’s Day when the episode aired – yeah way to make a depressing episode Fear. Ha!

    I definitely thought the baby was Morgan’s honestly.

    This season of Fear isn’t bad, it’s nothing to really necessarily write home about arguably but it’s certainly not the worst the series has been!

    I’m waiting to hear the discussion on “Rejoined” for the Rebinge podcast! ๐Ÿ™‚
