That was my favorite episode of Fear, this show has really come a long way from flipping pickup trucks.

I low-key hope Morgan teaches Alicia aikido now lmao. His curse only claims the firstborn, that's why lil poo poo Henry is still alive. Alicia should be safe.

So finished all the way to the current ep. gently caress, what a ride. Loved Season 3. Loved the retreat into the bunker and the slow inevitable decline. That was beautiful stuff. I was sure it wouldn’t get better. Then I watched Season 4. Thank you OP and thread. Blows away the main show.

Nick nooooooooo! God that hit me harder than I would’ve thought years ago when I couldn’t get past the first episode. Both horrible and fitting. That final scene where he was lying among the flowers almost brought me to tears. The “funeral” episode after was brutal.
Seriously good show. This and the Expanse are now my sole can’t miss shows. Thanks again goons.

So is this season just to kill off every character but leave morgan alive? Or is some guy with a stick gonna solve everyones broken hearts?

Fuckin' right? Not gonna lie it hit me harder than I thought it would. They always reminded me a lot of my best friend, it was kind of a trip. I ended up crying a little, and I don't believe I've ever cried over a TV character death before (a couple movies and video games have done it for me though).

They're not gonna kill him off. I don't believe it. They put way to much effort into his character in a short amount of time just to kill him off like that. He's the first character we see in the premier. TV magic is gonna save him.

Yes this sets up scenes or a montage of Naomi nursing him to health and their awkward, non-answer conversations."Why did you leave?" "I don't wanna talk about it"

But never mind the plot. Morgan is highly skilled at stick fighting. The round end is to knock people out without killing them. The pointy end of the stick is used against zombies. It is what keeps him alive. The pointy end of the stick is his main weapon against the horde of zombies that are everywhere in this world.





Why the gently caress does he keep sticking the sharp end into the ground?! If he actually did this on pavement and on dirt, within an hour of walking the point would be too rounded, splintered, frayed to be effective. /rant

I know but when I try to parse the plot and timelines...there is so much that doesn't make sense.

1. 2 weeks ago Dorie was told that Naomi died. He didn't shoot off anyone's finger for more details, he...waited until now? Why didn't he just ask Alicia or Luciana for the information on what happened to her?
2. Al is taking everyone's story and they're willing to explain. But NOT ONE WORD about Madison? How is that possible. It's like a cheap gimmick for an attempt at an inevitable 'reveal'.
3. At the end of the episode when the dam blew up, Madison washed up on shore in some small outpost or village. But this episode we are told she pulled Strand out of the water and nursed him back to health. Both things couldn't have happened.
4. The Vultures were waiting for the Stadium supplies to run out. But then a truck drives up with some bags of fertilizer and they just pack up and leave. This is the big bad of the season?! They're lucky Daniel Salazar isn't around!
5. Naomi: "This place had food, water, and people who knew how to survive. I hid Rose in the pantry behind the food court...It took me 3 days. By the time I got back with the medicine, ...the dead didn't get in from the outside, Rose died before I got back and she turned that first night and then everyone else did too..."
WHAT THE gently caress. How could she know when her daughter died and turned?! How did one single young girl infect the whole FEMA camp of "people who knew how to survive" ?! Laura's story made little sense.

Speculation: the Vultures are not the big bad, it's Madison. She hosed up the settlement, caused a feud with the vultures, possibly sending Naomi over to the vultures?
Strand et al, are not looking to right a wrong done to them by the Vultures, they are baddies trying to assert their domination over the Vultures.

Their plan of standing in an empty horse track waiting for the 20 mad max vans to show up is kind of mind boggling if their plan was to kill the bad guys

/\ You'd think they would have learned the basics by now! They fell for "the oldest trick in the book" that they themselves used a few days ago!

Okay maybe they're not the Big Bad but you can't hold a siege while still allowing the people inside to leave and return with provisions!

I thought about this too but in reality they just can't have a show where a black guy literally just walks around with a spear. They have star gate sg-1 for that.

What if it's a trick

Or, more probably, Madison kidnaps one and pisses them off because all she really wants is chaos

A little EQ, a touch of reverb, slap on some compression and there. That'll get your dickbutt jiggling.

I like that since the writers were seemingly told "You can't do zombie camo anymore". They instead have been trivializing them as a threat in other ways. Like having one be distracted in a car by tapping on the glass so someone can get behind them inside the vehicle.

They could have just shot a gun in the fema camp instead of doing ultimate naomi warrior

This whole episode was logistically frustrating, but hey, at least they still talk like people.

I like where strand decided to hold the rope instead of just tying it off somewhere, then almost drops her.

Zombie camo was the worst. Eventually they just put some blood on their faces and called it good. Good riddance.

Yeah, some of this stuff didn't make sense, like how Alicia, Strand and Luciana are going to take on 40ish armed dudes out in the open. Also, I'm predicting the tin full of Scrabble tiles saves John's life.
