FTWDTT 051 – …I Lose Myself (S4E16)

On this episode 51 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Mark and I discuss Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 16, the season finale, titled …I Lose Myself. While not the worst episode, it certainly wasn’t the best either. It had some great moments, particularly the moments between John and June, but this episode suffered from the same unbelievable use of time and distance and plot points that stretched my suspension of disbelief beyond the breaking point. I still look forward to what the show will come up with next season… but my anticipation is nothing like it was at the end of season 3.

This episode featured the directorial debut of Colman Domingo, and he did a good job in his first outing, with a well acted and directed story, that had a few negatives that I can’t really fault him for.
