FTWDTT 091 – Padre (S7E8)
Talking Through Padre
For this episode 91 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian, Kyle, and LT talk through the mid-season finale of Season 7 Episode 8 of Fear the Walking Dead titled Padre, which was written by Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss directed by Michael E. Satrazemis. We also discuss the series finale of The World Beyond Season 2 Episode 10, The Last Light.
Padre, Padre, Padre!
So LT figured out what P.A.D.R.E. stands for. People Are Dying Run East. Well, it’s better than nothing since all we got was that Padre was, thank goodness, not Padre Island. These writers need to be more creative, in our opinion. Well, this mid-season finale didn’t give us much, a few shockers, and some TWDU questionable situations. The zombie virus has always acted a certain way so one character’s situation doesn’t seem to fit in. So I guess we will have to see how the back half takes this on.
We have Strand and Alicia finally have the long-awaited meet and greet and it doesn’t turn out great. It’s All-Out-War, so to speak and now with Senator Walker not showing Alicia where Padre is and the revelations by Strand that he killed Will, dramatic explosions are certainly in our future. Morgan was there, as well, and he’s just there trying to help Alicia realize the options for her and her people so one can guess that in the back half he will play a bigger part to either find a resolution that doesn’t kill everyone, or he will take sides. Good or Bad, he’s the lead character for the showrunners so you know he has a part in all the drama that will unfold.
And we got some news about the return of ‘you’re not gone until you’re gone’ Madison Clark. Whether we see her in the back half of season 7 or if this is a development of Season 8, we shall see.
World Beyond, again, was much better than Fear this week and now that it’s over we were left with some interesting tidbits about the CRM but it still fell flat. We know the movies are still coming, or we think they are so it’s likely we will see some of our crew in the future. I just hope we get more CRM storyline in the months and years ahead because there was so much more they could have done with the 20 episodes of World Beyond that would have made the entirety of the series that much better.
Also of note that we discussed at the end of the podcast LT’s guest appearance on the Computer Resume Podcast. It has been released and you can check it out here! He talks Cast as Crew: II Enterprise S2 Ep 21 & 22 – The Breach & Cogenitor with host Todd A. Davis. So go check it out.
So without any more delay (and thank you to everyone for their patience and condolences to Kyle) join Brian, LT, and Kyle as they discuss the mid-season finale of Fear the Walking Dead, Padre, and The Series Finale of The Walking Dead World Beyond, The Last Light. See you in February when The Walking Dead Season 11 – part 2 returns!

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.
