We're back once again with Bleeding Cool's weekly review/recap of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead Season 4, taking a look at the fourth episode of the season, 'Buried.' With last week's game-changing ending that no one – and I mean no one – saw coming, can our heroes pull it together in order to survive…and how did we get to this point in the first place? That's a question Althea (Maggie Grace) also wants answers to, so let's see if this week's episode can keep the quality vibe flowing.

Just to be clear… our "revap" (recap/review mash-up) is a monster all its own — and I will be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode, so just keep that in mind. Definitely not looking for pitchforks and torches outside my apartment so 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.
