This Week’s Dead: The Walking Dead News – Week of 10-5-2015
Hey there members of TWD family…here’s This Week’s Dead, a roundup of The Walking Dead news.
Last Night’s Episode: Fear the Walking Dead (SPOILERS)
Last night was the season finale of Fear the Walking Dead. Episode 106 “The Good Man” found everyone on their way to the military base to find Liza, Nick and Griselda. Luring the walkers from the auditorium Daniel visited in the last scene of Episode 105 to the military compound, the group sneaked inside. Meanwhile, Nick and Strand had broken out of their cells, and Liza opted to stay behind rather than join the other evacuees. Everyone was reunited as walkers closed in, and the group fought their way out.
Ofelia ended up wounded in the process, shot by Andy, the soldier her father had tortured for the information. Later at Strand’s luxurious home, Liza confirmed that Ofelia would live. Sadly, Liza would not be so lucky. She had been bitten during the fighting, and Travis opted to be the one to end her life. The episode concludes with a moving shot over the ocean, where the group is apparently headed on Strand’s yacht Abigail. Expect more on the episode later this week here on TWD Fansite.
Last Night’s Talking Dead
A special FTWD edition of Talking Dead aired last night with guests Kim Dickens (Madison), Cliff Curtis (Travis) and producer Dave Erickson. One lucky cast member got a full set of Nick’s now famous old man clothes. In another comical moment, Cliff accidentally referred to Madison as the “Rick James” of the group rather than the “Rick Grimes.” The episode also included a memorial reel and interviews and spots with Robert Kirkman, Lincoln A. Castellanos (Tobias) and Rubén Blades (Daniel.)
