We’re very, VERY late this time out AGAIN, but for this episode 80 of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT talk through Fear the Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 13, titled J.D., which was written by Nick Bernardone & Jacob Pinion and directed by Aisha Tyler. Sherry wants to say goodbye to Dwight as she plans to leave for Virginia to kill Negan, while June meets John Dorie Sr., who has a connection to our bad guy Teddy.
All of the characters this episode are in The Same Boat, or at least that’s how it seems in the beginning; but by the end of the episode, they are not in the same boat at all. In fact, it appears that our gang has come out on top, but at what cost to Carol and Maggie? They both appear to be in a bad way after their own experiences from the Savior invasion, and we are rewarded with a tender moment for Daryl and Carol (a moment which has been lacking for quite some time we might add!), as well as for Glenn and Maggie. It might not be fair to pick favorites, but I liked the Maggie and Carol power hour storyline way better than Abe’s tripping over his “sack o’ gonads” story. And what a tour de force performance from Alicia Witt, complete with the unglamorous Walking-Dead-style make-under that just helped her be even more amazing!
