Talking Through The Raft!

For this episode 96 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, LT and Brian talk through Season 7 Episode 13 of Fear the Walking Dead titled The Raft, which was written by Nazin Choudhury & Nick Bernardone and directed by Gary Rake. Dwight and Sherry must decide between their code and their safety.

Looks like we might get a gender-reveal party in our future!

Lol, so it looks like the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. Not only was this a Dwight and Sherry focused episode on a mission to save baby Mo from the terrors of Strand’s Rangers but we find out that Sherry is pregnant. So many babies, so little time. Morgan and Alicia lead the horde to the bunker and decide on the war to come, which ends with Morgan choosing baby Mo and skipping town on a raft to leave Alicia to deal with Strand. I’m sure we will see him again because this wouldn’t make any sense to leave Alicia so alone in this fight. We did meet a new person that LT and Glynis, with some excellent sleuthing, revealed to be Maya Vazquez, the wife of Senator Vazquez, but she didn’t stay long, so we can only assume she will play a part in the episodes to come and with PADRE. Still no Madison, but we expect that to happen now with three episodes left.

So, Enjoy as LT and Brian (Kyle was not able to join them this week) discuss Fear the Walking Dead, Season 7, Episode 13, titled The Raft.

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.

    “I’m sure we will see him again because this wouldn’t make any sense to leave Alicia so alone in this fight.” – we’ll see him again because he’s Gimple’s pet; it’s too much to think this is him leaving forever.

    SSSOOO many peppers from farmer Kyle!

    Lol to Mike’s Awesome Sauce comment! He’s not wrong. 🙂

    Alicia didn’t need Morgan to tell her she was ready to lead – she knew that. It’s insulting they act as if she needs his approval to make her smart moves. 🙄 Again they handicap her so much and then wonder why people say the early seasons were better. It’s bad writing LT that Alicia flip flops so much.

    “This show sucks for continuity!” – facts Deeta!!!

    Morgan isn’t in next week? YYYEEESSSS! ❤️😁 Thank you for the great news Brian. 🙂 It might be a good episode then, ha.

    END LT Mrs. LT! 😡 Bad LT. You’re not as Morgan yet but sir – you are wrong for the hormonal comment.
