Honestly I hate the motivational gimmicks they give various characters... like the lady last season who lived to kill people who make other people weak... dumb.

Same thing with this, we live to help other people with relief caches?  Honestly it's stupidly naive and the apocalypse didn't start a month ago at this point.

They wanted to get to the truck stop because Luciana was wounded and there were supplies there.  Of course the only reason she was hurt is because they all got on a plane WITH NOT A SINGLE EXPERIENCED PILOT AMONG THEM!!!!!!

Yeah, but again, if this truck stop was surrounded by undead, bringing a wounded Luciana there and hope plow through the walkers? Admittedly there were much options, but...

So you had
1. No experienced pilot.
2. No planned landing area
3. Rushing to what they were told was a besieged truck stop because one of them was gravely wounded.
4. Lucked out that the kids were nearby and had a running vehicle that could carry them all.

Then Lois Lane has to go back to crash site alone at night during a zombie apocalypse.

I will admit I liked the Nuclear reactor/radioactive zombies sidequest.  Although why did they not shut the reactors down?

Just before they showed it, I turned and said to my wife "I bet the kids are setting up these zombie roadblocks."

So are the kids their own network of crazy or are they working with the Black Mesa guys that took Al?  **** needs to start making some kind of sense soon.

Odd way to bring Dwight back....my guess on the timeline is that we're about 18 months after All Out War on TWD...so we're roughly at the point where Rick gets "killed".  I'm still wondering how this season of FTWD is going to show to hint at the upcoming movies.

Morgan and Dwight reunite in a wild west ghost town.

Did anyone expect this?

Those kids suck. They could be living in a wild west ghost town...instead of a van...down by the river...

Nice circular plot on the Daniel/Strand front....ultimately leaving the group separated, but with a new base full of supplies to lose!

So the kids have been putting up these barriers of walkers to keep Black Mesa at bay?  The only part of that plotline that makes sense is that all their parents were killed at the camp (by walkers I think) and that's why they didn't want to leave.

At least next week we get to the plotline that everyone wants to watch.

I don't know what's coming, so no spoilers.

Airplane scene was pretty fun.

Don't worry Rob...the only way someone could spoil this is if they watched the episode early.....no comic to read for this one.

Interesting episode last night.  Nice to get a little look into Black Mesa.

So the woman's partner freaked out over radioactive zombies? What?

Mountain climbing was unexpected, and well...a bit convoluted.  How exactly did both undead climbers die?

Of course she's a lesbian or bi or whatever.

It wasn't bad, but they seem to dragging this so-so story "stuck in the high country" line out. Where is their region where there's a nuclear plant, a western town, and all routes out are blocked?

Best new character is Skidmark the cat.

Now we are getting fillerish.

Annoying kids are still annoying.

I'd like to point out that Z NATION did their nuke plant meltdown story in one episode.

Alfred Dorrie keeping the letter secret from Bruce Dwight. We back on that "with holding information" stuff again.

Ballooooon fakery.

It's amusing they decided that FTWD isn't worthy of a Talking Dead after each episode anymore.

Are they setting up Alicia to die?

Why ain't those get ate yet?

No stopping the meltdown...even those Z Nation clods accomplished that!

Flight of the Phoenix/Lord of the Flies storyline needs to end by mid season.

They could really surprise us next week by having Matt Frewer just kill Mo Collins and what's his name.

Next week's the mid-season finale right?

It looks like they're setting up Alicia to die....I expect a save "at the last moment".

No deaths. Nothing the first half of the season. not even background characters. I'm not watching these shows to see people eaten by zombies, but...

I guess Morgan got the short end of the stick.  :P

Logan is probably playing a game with them.

What they gonna do with all those annoying kids? Radiation ranger woman, take the kids and go to Bum-Hump, Egypt or something.

Who knows what adventures they'll have in this vague part of the American south-west...?
