FTWDTT 101 – Blue Jay (S8E2)
Talking Through Blue Jay!
For this episode 101 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle and LT talk through Season 8 Episode 2 of Fear the Walking Dead titled Blue Jay, written by Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss and directed by Heather Cappielo. After fleeing PADRE, June’s safety and solitude is threatened by an unwelcome reunion and a desperate father’s search for his missing daughter.
How many fingers am I holding up?
Man, June has some issues with fingers in this episode. Talk about being a collector. So we get a reunion that ends up with some surprises. A new character that, as we know, Fear likes to introduce us to someone only to take them away. Padre either doesn’t have the manpower to conduct a search for someone that for years has been a thorn in their side and some more secrets to wag a finger at. This episode was better with some very emotional tension between June and the return of Dwight and Sherry and the surprise that Sherry did have her baby, and they have been keeping their son a secret from him and Padre. Things get dicey, and some shocking moments happen in this episode. So hopefully, this continues because we really want this season to be decent.

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.), and 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.
