Talking Through Six Hours

For this episode 85 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Brian, and LT talk through Season 7 Episode 2 of Fear the Walking Dead, titled Six Hours, which was written by co-showrunners Ian Goldberg & Andrew Chambliss and directed by co-executive producer Michael E. Satrazemis. We also discuss The World Beyond Season 2 Episode 4, Family is a Four Letter Word.

Morgan, Grace and Mo venture out into the Wasteland… in a Pinto.

This episode was probably one of Karen David’s best performances on the show. With the reality of their situation to a comeback from the mental anguish that this nuclear wasteland and Mo’s survival. While Kyle didn’t like this episode, for other reasons, it does have to state that Karen David carried this episode like a boss. We did get to meet some new people who had baby issues and some great walker effects but there were some complete stretches of the imagination with some of the scenes with this episode. I mean a diesel-powered Pinto? Come on.

There still wasn’t any Alicia in this episode since it was a Morgan, Grace, and Mo-centered affair but we got a little more on Padre and that it’s a location, but of what.. we will have to wait and see.

We did discuss World Beyond and again, we need this to pay off or otherwise what was the point. Kid show status is still in effect and so we hope, with what episodes they have left that we get some answers. 

So enjoy as we discuss the Supernova Pinto of Season 7 Episode 2 of Fear The Walking Dead.

We want to start offering Patrons a real reason to stay on our Patreon and to get more people to become Patrons. As such, we are going to start experimenting with bringing you some new content that will really make it worth your while to be subscribed.

We are going to try offering Patrons early access to our regular episodes. These versions of the episodes will be less polished than the final version of the podcast, will largely be uncensored, may contain things we fix up in the final version (like when we speak over each other, awkward silences, etc.), content that we remove from the final version and may not have all of the sound effects mixed in properly (and in the case of this episode, doesn’t have the beginning and ending music mixed in at all).

To do this, we edited a different version of the podcast where we’re all on one single track, and only edited major things. Aside from that, the process is similar to how we’ve been doing it. We think, at least from an editing perspective, this was a major success. In fact, this process may influence how we edit the main version of the podcast going forward.

    “it does have to state that Karen David carried this episode like a boss.” – best part of what little I watched; I don’t care about Morgan as you know so I skipped most of this episode but I saw of Karen’s stuff was good and more of what I’d love to see instead of Jones!

    Again it’s Alicia to kill Strand or no one!

    I’m glad you enjoyed the episode Brian, but I’m with Kyle and LT – I was ready to hard pass on it. Different strokes for different folks. 🙂

    Grace was the best part of what I watched for sure but I hated at the end she caved essentially and has seemingly forgot everything she said up until that point just because she bonded a bit with Mo and found food under the sub, which of course they did because God forbid Morgan Jones has to work for anything on this series. It would have been way more dramatic if she went off and died at the end of this or even took her own life because as she said this is not a place she wants to be; it was this dramatic build up for nothing in the end.

    I constantly have Madison withdrawals Kyle! I miss her so much! And I TOTALLY agree – give me more Alicia for sure and her leading this series instead as she should have posted Madison anyways!

    I’m thinking LT is going to be right and it will be Padre Island.

    Sad rumor is Alicia isn’t going to show up until into the second half of the season; I’m telling you, I think Alycia is done with the series. Losing Kim was a big thing to she and Coleman and then you have her separate from others for extended periods of time and she only gets maybe 10 minutes of screen time a season now when she knows she’s an original lead character and FEAR was based on the Clarks’ journey to survive and she’s the last Clark – I get her being mad! We may be surprised, but I feel Alycia Debnam-Carey is al but contractually checked out on the series and if she goes I can kind of see Coleman not being far behind because while he gets more screen time than her he would lose another friend he’s use to working with and it just wouldn’t be as worth it anymore potentially; and when you make thousands of dollars like actors do it’s not always about the money…heck even people who don’t make that quit projects because something matters more to them than money at that point. If they want her to stay they’re going to have to start treating her like the lead she was and was growing to be in season 3 and early season four before Morgan came and destroyed everything.

    “I think he’s starting to get up off his ideals” – can Morgan get up off the screen time count also Brian? Ha.

    What do you mean you can’t go outside Kyle, they go outside all the time – again what is logic? Ha.

    Wait…what…Brian isn’t from here? Where’s your origin sir?!

    Hot? We’re going to have nuclear winter next season come on.

    There’s probably maps on the sub they could look at also to see Padre Island. I’m with Kyle, forget having knowledge of subs period – you’re trying to survive so why wouldn’t you turn that place upside down looking for supplies of all kinds?

    I agree Renee, we don’t need the bounty hunter plot back.

    Lol to diesel Rabbit…it’s just funny to hear you all say those two words combined. 🙂

    LOL to LT’s “but that’s just me!” regarding the relative’s head in a box. 🙂

    Re: feedback – it’s fine Brian. 🙂

    You’re slowly breaking Brian down LT. Ha!

    “All My Zombies”; if your going to invoke Lucci LT you go all the way! 😉
