As Fear the Walking Dead episode 2×05 “Captive” came to an end, Madison rescued Travis by using a zombified Reed to take out Connor. Then Alicia slid out of Jack’s life down the side of the dry-docked boat and into the ocean to be picked up by Travis and Madison in the small boat.  We see the trio racing towards the Abigail waiting in the distance.

 

What does ‘Sicut Cervus’ mean to FTWD?

Whatever does that mean? Actually, it is Latin for the first three words of Psalms 41: 2, “As the hart (deer).” It is also the first two words of the Latin choral music from the Renaissance era.  The next word is desiradat or longs (for), desires. I can’t wait to see if this is a play on words or what they are longing for in the new episode.

 

Is Baja in sight?

Danger, Will Robinson, danger! Just when you think you can trust your local corrupt political official and pay him off for safe passage into Mexican waters, here he comes with a stranger in the boat, flying towards your yacht! Is there no honor among thieves anymore? Since they only paid for safe passage for two people, Strand orders Madison to get everyone below deck and hide. There is no time to waste; get the lead out, people!

 

Hide and Seek

As the Abigail survivors hide below deck, a shot rings out. Only Strand and Luis are on top with the Mexicans so who shot who? Will it be bad for our FTWD crew either way? If Strand or Luis is shot, someone could find them. If one of the Mexicans is shot, will it affect their safe passage into Mexican waters? Baja is so close; yet still so far away!

I’m so rooting for our little group to make it to Baja! If for no other reason, just so Strand can be reunited with Abigail….and I don’t mean the yacht. Tune in Sunday night to Fear the Walking Dead on AMC at 9/8C for “Sicut Cervus” to see what happens.

I'm from a very rural area in SW Mississippi. I'm Mom to one grown son and a little Maltese (see profile picture). I came late to The Walking Dead but instantly fell in love with the series and Daryl. I binge-watched the first four and a half seasons to catch up before it came back on in January, 2015. Now I'm hopelessly hooked. I also watch Fear the Walking Dead and The Talking Dead. I love blogging and interviewing the cast members and cosplayers. I believe everyone deserves recognition for their contribution to the success of TWD and FTWD, no matter how small.
