Daniel’s journey on Fear The Walking Dead is no where near over.
That is because he is not to be messed with at all regardless of his state. Luciana also used his memory for her own advantage. As cold as that was, in the apocalypse, you have to do what you have to do in order to survive.
Is it safe to say that Arno served no purpose on Fear The Walking Dead? sure he died in this episode. But the whole time I was watching him meet his demise, I did not care to feel bad for him. At least the walkers had a great snack. I am interested to see if Wes is really joining Strand, or if he is there to take him down by a surprise.
As a result of Luiana using Daniel’s amnesia against him, they get get close to Strand’s Tower. I actually felt something for the first time in a while. That is, we’re going to lose him by the end of the season. There needs to be some thinning out of the cast by the time Madison returns. Daniel still believes that Ofelia is alive. Ofelia has been dead since the third season and I still think that he is somewhat grieving.
The writing team deserves a lot of credit for letting the majority of the episode be in Spanish / subtitled as well. I have always found The Walking Dead franchise to be diverse, and I especially love how it is incorporated into the series. This was also Alycia Debnam-Carey’s directorial debut on Fear The Walking Dead and her style is interesting. Alycia has a great visionary mind when it comes to camera angles, mood, and identifying a good story. It turned out to be a great episode of Fear. “Ofelia” should have been the season opener!
