Talking Through Till Death

For this episode 88 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Brian, and LT talk through Season 7 Episode 5 of Fear the Walking Dead, titled Till Death, which was written by Justin Boyd & Ashley Cardiff directed by Lennie James. We also discuss The World Beyond Season 2 Episode 7, Blood and Lies.

Let’s Get Ready to RRRumBlllleeeee!

This was a more humorous episode that brought us a new character Mickey ‘The Bride’ who escaped from the cage of Strand only to be found by the Dark Horses, aka Dwight and Sherry. That was the basis of this episode but there were some unsettling developments on where Strand is with his dictatorial new style in rebuilding his civilization. Some of us didn’t like seeing the Negan-like connection but it’s interesting to see this kind of development coming out of Strand. He’s not what we would think of as a cold-blooded killer but it seems that day has changed.

This is where we meet Mickey. And escapest from The Tower that Strand dangles in front of Dwight and Sherry as a means of entry into his humble abode. This leads to some fun comedic scenes but also some sad outcomes but in the end, we find out, from all the people that the due meet, that Padre seems to be on everyone’s mind. That is where we are left by the end of this episode and we hope that means closer to seeing Alicia and her whereabouts.

So enjoy as we discuss the rumble and tumble of Season 7 Episode 5 of Fear The Walking Dead, Till Death.

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.

    LT Flaire with the “Wooh!”. Ha

    Lol to Brian’s mimic of Strand’s lieutenant.

    Fair points about this episode Kyle!

    “It’s like The Brady Brunch – ‘Padre’ ‘Padre’ ‘Padre’!” – lol Brian.

    More screen time needs to lead to and be for Alicia!

    I agree Renee – that horse kick would have killed the dude…he certainly wouldn’t be talking that well after getting hit!

    Major Exposition 😂😂😂!

    There’s no proof Strand killed the family, like okay maybe he ordered the parents killed but the kid why? I think the henchman, if it’s true, did that one to get at Dwight more for shooting his friend. Unless Strand is putting his name out there then how would the guy know Strand knew Dwight unless he told him so I can believe he ordered the family roughed up or even the parents killed but the kid I think the one dude did on his own.

    There’s no proof Will and Alicia were lovers, let’s not promote that. Ha Also just please no to that being why Alicia kills Strand, like it can be part of it that he’s gone too far but that should not be the only reason if she does; like you have the fact he can’t be trusted really if you’re not her (because I think he would tell her the truth mainly, more than anyone, just because of the Madison connection), you have the fact he’s selecting people instead of trying to help all, you have the fact he left her – yes he said it was best for her but she didn’t agree with that, and you have the fact maybe his actions did lead to the death of the innocent family at the farm. There’s so much more to kill him over than “because Will”; and also again ALICIA ONLY better kill him because if Morgan Jones takes out another original character who I enjoy way more than him…expect rage feedback, I am warning you now. Ha!

    I agree Brian, don’t show us the CRM if you aren’t going to use the CRM.
