What happened on Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 13? This was, as a whole, absolutely the most scattered episode of the season to date. There were a number of different events that transpired across a number of different threads, but the most notable one to us came via Strand and John Dorie.
Basically, this is the one storyline that felt a little bit more like watching Robinson Crusoe than any other. These two men found themselves separated from everyone and desperate to figure out a way to cross the water so that they could better ensure their safety down the line. Basically, they wanted to risk their future now in order to be in a better spot in the future.
As for what happened elsewhere, we did see some powerful moments tonight for Luciana, we’re continuing to see June and Al try to move forward, and we like to think that all of these characters are getting closer to getting in a better place. What we did like especially about Luciana was her never-say-die spirit, which is something that probably comes from what happened with Nick and also everything that happened even before that moment. We had almost no idea where her story was going leading into this season, but there is quite a bit to be happy about now as she is turning out to be something of a healer in this world. It’s not so much in a medical sense, but she is someone who seems to be out to make the world a little bit better.
Luciana dominated some of the end of the episode thanks to what she did for the old truck driver, and she took the time in order to hear his story and make him feel a little bit more comfortable. She also heard Morgan’s voice through the walkie-talkie, which led in part to one reunion. Another one seems to be coming, given that Alicia and Charlie also had a chance to communicate with Morgan.
Unfortunately, in the closing minutes Morgan also heard a message from the Filthy Woman, who is the biggest threat that the group has at the moment. Morgan tried to talk reason to her, but it didn’t seem to work … and at the end of the episode, she attacked before he could meet up with Alicia and Charlie.
We do think that Fear the Walking Dead can work when you have a number of different stories going on, but it works infinitely better when you have some of these characters all around each other. The show is a little bit scattered at present, and there are some serious issues that come with that if you are trying to highlight too many stories in a confined amount of space.
Luckily, the end of tonight’s episode made some of the scattered storytelling worth it.
