The essentials of Sunday events Fear the living dead circled around Strand, his head getting heavier and heavier as he wore the crown. But not even the shock at the climax of its part of the hour could rival the time viewers were waiting for and Meanwhile: Alicia’s Return – and Alycia Debnam-Carey’s first appearance since Season 6.
In Strand’s part of “The Portrait,” although he turned down just about everyone who sought refuge in the tower – even people who Howard thought might have been helpful – he allowed Morgan, would not- what to let June examine a sick baby Mo (who turned out to have a double ear infection). Soon the Stalkers not only catapulted the walkers into the skyscraper, but they were throwing bombs and threatening to launch walkers equipped with radioactive modules through the windows if Victor did not grant them refuge. At the same time, Strand tipped over – he had been poisoned! (How very Shakespearean, right?)
In the pickle of all pickles, Victor decided to let Morgan go to the armory to radio Grace outside for help. He even gave in to Morgan’s request to lower the tot in an elevator shaft to him, in front of several gripping walkers. (Now I wouldn’t trust Victor for anything, but I’m not sure if I would have let my baby caving anywhere near a bunch of tasty looking zombies and all !)
After begging Morgan to find Alicia, “because I don’t think she would want me to find her,” Victor was sure his enemy wouldn’t come back for him. Yet, back, Morgan announced that Grace and Sarah had done the dirty work outside and the tower had been saved from the Stalkers. Now Strand had a chance to turn the place into such a welcoming haven that he would even impress Alicia.
Alas, as Morgan gave Victor his pep talk, Strand noticed that his opponent’s fingers had the same blue color on them as the poison he had unleashed – Morgan had tried to get rid of his nemesis when they had shared a drink earlier! “Take him to the roof!” Victor ordered.
But of course, Strand failed to send Morgan aside. Instead, he let Grace make a deal on the intercom: if he let Morgan live, she would help identify and neutralize the walkers who were carrying radioactive material. In the end, Morgan was allowed to leave without Mo, and Grace was allowed in (although the door for her was not the revolving type). “I’ll find my way back to you,” Morgan promised.
“No, you won’t,” retorted Victor. “But I’ll give them anything you couldn’t.” “To start, probably, with a megalomaniac to manage!
At the end of the episode, he called out little Mo, adding creepily, “She has to get used to her new father someday. ” [Shudder]
Meanwhile, back in the wild, as casually as a friend at the local Starbucks, Morgan ran into Dwight and Sherry, who were walking around with what looked like Stalkers. Their boss wanted to talk to Morgan as well, the couple said.
Do I even tell you that their boss turned out to be Alicia? She assured Morgan that the Stalkers who attacked the tower weren’t her people, at least not anymore. And as happy as she was to see her old friend, “I brought you here because I need your help… These people are tired, hungry, desperate. “
If she wanted Morgan to have a good word with Strand, she was going to be [bleep] no chance. But their conversation didn’t even get that far, as some walkers approached with radioactive material attached to them, and before anyone could understand the words “Don’t shoot!” They had been shot, releasing toxic gases into the atmosphere. “! Morgan cried. And that was it.
So, what did you think of Alicia’s return after so long? Worth the wait? And besides, the less striking reappearance of Wendell? We hadn’t seen her in even longer than we had seen Alicia! Hit the comments with your thoughts.
