Welcome back to Bleeding Cool‘s Fear the Walking Dead Rewind, as we take a look back at our thoughts on the season’s eleventh episode ‘The Code’ ahead of Sunday night’s new episode.
After a weak mideseason start, AMC‘s FTWD threw the second-half of the season back into quality overdrive thanks to Alycia Debnam-Carey and Alexa Nisenson‘s performances in ‘Close Your Eyes’. So was a Morgan (Lennie James)-centered episode a worthy enough follow-up to last week’s homerun? Are Aaron Stanford‘s Jim, Daryl Mitchell‘s Wendall, and Mo Collins‘ Sarah deserving of Morgan’s trust – and our interest? And why do we have a feeling that Tonya Pinkins‘ disturbing unnamed character should probably be kept out of their caravan back to Alexandria?
Check out our review of ‘The Code’ below to find out how well the series has answered those questions – so far:
Fear the Walking Dead s04e11 ‘The Code’: Morgan’s journey is derailed by some new acquaintances.
Here’s a look at what viewers can expect from this week’s episode of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, ‘Weak,’ as well as a sneak preview from the upcoming episode:
Fear the Walking Dead s04e12 ‘Weak’: June helps when Al’s health deteriorates; Morgan searches for friends lost in the storm.
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 Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as 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 Mitchell, Aaron Stanford, Tonya Pinkins, and Stephen Henderson.
