FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON REVIEWED
“Fear the Walking Dead” wants to be political and different from The Walking Dead. What it does in the second season is create a rapidly moving series without much of a purpose. Are they going to stay in Mexico or America? Does emotional relevance hold up for characters across a season? Finally, when will we have a villain that actually lasts long enough to be an adversary. Your best guess is that it might come together in Season 3.
What’s weird is that this spin-off show has the better cast and yet they can’t hang their hat on anything. I get that having a crew that is more family oriented and less tactical will produce a different tale. I just wish anything mattered on this series. By this point in the main series, you already had the weak point of the cast killed and major villains being set up. But, I guess I’m just complaining.

The Plot Thus Far
Last season, ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ explored a blended family who watched a burning, dead city as they traversed a devastated Los Angeles. In Season 2, the group aboard the Abigail is unaware of the true breadth and depth of the apocalypse that surrounds them; they assume there is still a chance that some city, state, or nation might be unaffected some place that the Infection has not reached. But as Operation Cobalt goes into full effect, the military bombs the Southland to cleanse it of the Infected, driving the Dead toward the sea. As Madison, Travis, Daniel, and their grieving families head for ports unknown, they will discover that the water may be no safer than land.
