As Bleeding Cool gets ready for tonight's live-blog of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead Season 4, we wanted to rewind you back to last week's third episode 'Good Out Here' to get you up to speed on our thoughts on the show's shocking and impressive fourth season start. To be honest? The word "shocking" isn't even close to being strong enough to describe what happened last Sunday. Huge buckets of credit to the writers and to the show's publicity machine for marking us out pre-season with expectations of a Morgan (Lennie James)/Nick (Frank Dillane) "mentor/mentee" dynamic moving forward.
Yeah. That's not happening anymore. But at least we'll always have the blue bonnets…???
So before we face the fallout from last week's ending with tonight's fourth episode 'Buried,' check out our "revap" (a recap-review mash-up) of last week's episode below – and since I'm definitely not looking for pitchforks and torches outside my apartment? Spoiler warnings!

Here's what's ahead on the fourth season of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead:
In season 4, we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), who is joining the story from the world of The Walking Dead. The characters' immediate pasts mix with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes, and threats. They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; and the heroic, mercenary and craven, all crashing together toward a new reality for Fear the Walking Dead.
AMC's Fear the Walking Dead's fourth season stars Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia; as well as new series regulars Lennie James, Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman and Maggie Grace. Produced by AMC Studios, the series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple; showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg; Robert Kirkman; David Alpert; Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero.
