Fear The Walking Dead returns tonight with season 3, episode 5, is titled “Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame.” Fear the Walking Dead (FTWD) is an American post-apocalyptic horror drama television series created by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. FTWD premiered on AMC on August 23, 2015, and is the companion series and prequel to The Walking Dead, which is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
This week’s episode resembles the same title as Charles Bukowski’s literary work Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame. By Kirkman naming the episode, possibly as an ode to the womanizing wildcard Charles Bukowski, it’s safe to assume that things may be getting even more wild from last week’s intense episode. Here’s why last week’s episode was so important:
In 100, we get a quieter, more measured post-apocalypse, which is heavier on mood and setting than it is on zombie action. We also get some quality time with Daniel Salazar (Rubén Blades), who we know somehow escaped the vineyard. He’s more or less intact, save for nasty burns on his leg. More importantly, FTWD delivers what is arguably its strongest, most effective hour to date. While I liked Nick’s long and treacherous trek to Tijuana in last season’s Grotesque there’s something different about Daniel’s journey. It somehow seems more intimate and personal. The best part of 100 is that it functions as a standalone episode with a self-contained story arc. As intriguing as the Ottos’ ranch may be with its strange dynamics and black-and-white beliefs, what we get this week is a murky, morally grey area in which a new set of survivors resides.
This week’s episode includes a new threat that reveals itself to Madison and Troy as they search for answers, while Alicia must reconcile with her past decisions.
