Welcome back, everybody! Bleeding Cool’s weekly review of AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead season 4 is back, this time taking a look at the tenth episode of the season ‘Close Your Eyes.’ After being a little less than impressed with the midseason premiere (and we stand by our review), we were concerned about the series being able to get the S.W.A.T. truck back up and running (yeah… a forced metaphor).
Thanks to Alycia Debnam-Carey and Alexa Nisenson, things look like they’re going to be just fine.
Check out our thoughts on ‘Close Your Eyes’ below, along with a look back at the episode:

The cast and creators look ahead at what’s to come as we head towards the fourth season finale:
The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be…together.
In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now – as individuals and as part of the greater group – and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries – human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope.
Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero, and produced by AMC Studios. The series stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Mo Collins, Daryl “Chill” Mitchell, Aaron Stanford, Tonya Pinkins, and Stephen Henderson.
