Welcome to the first edition of Bleeding Cool’s weekly review/recap of AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead Season 4, as we join the series at the same time that The Walking Dead‘s Morgan (Lennie James) does: with the season premiere ‘What’s Your Story?’. But before we take a look at whether the season opener was exactly what new viewers were waiting for, a not-so-subtle heads-up:

Just to be clear, our “revap” (recap/review/stream of consciousness mash-up) is a “monster” all its own — and I will be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode, so just keep that in mind.

Fear the Walking Dead Episode 4×01 ‘What’s Your Story?’: A lone traveler’s wearying journey is interrupted by new acquaintances, some who become friend, others who become foe.

Here’s a look at next Sunday’s episode, ‘Another Day in the Diamond’:

In this sneak preview from this Sunday’s ‘Another Day in the Diamond,’ Madison (Kim Dickens) and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) come across a looted camp:

Morgan gets a very unexpected guest in this highlight scene from the season premiere ‘What’s Your Story?’:

Here’s a look at what’s ahead on the fourth season of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead:

In season 4, we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), who is joining the story from the world of The Walking Dead. The characters’ immediate pasts mix with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes, and threats. They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; and the heroic, mercenary and craven, all crashing together toward a new reality for Fear the Walking Dead.
