There's this thing that fans of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead have come to expect from the series, especially during this fourth season: if there's a chance for a good situation to turn bad, it will – and if there's a chance for a bad situation to get really, really bad, then there's this week's episode 'MM 54.'
All Morgan's (Lennie James) trying to do is get Al (Maggie Grace), June (Jenna Elfman), Jim (Aaron Stanford), Wendell (Daryl Mitchell), and Sarah (Mo Collins) reunited with the rest of the crew so they can make their way to The Walking Dead's Alexandria-Hilltop-Sanctuary community. One problem: Dorie (Garret Dillahunt) and Victor (Colman Domingo) are stranded, and Dorie's eaten his last piece of licorice – that's not a good thing. Throw still-missing Luciana (Danay Garcia), Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), and Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) into the mix – and this is after a major storm threw them around like Legos – and it's pretty clear this isn't going to be a simple case of "grab-n-go."
Oh, and then there's Filthy Lady (Tonya Pinkins) and her "mission" to bring Morgan back to his old primal self – and as we saw at the end of last week's episode, she's willing to do it by any means necessary.
So you kinda' can't blame "Jimbo" for wanting to get as far away from all of this as quickly as possible – and as we can see from the preview below, he's more than willing to hand over Morgan in the process. One highlight from the trailer for 'MM 54' that follows: it looks like we'll be getting some Filthy Woman backstory – and from the looks of things, she's been on her "mission" for awhile now:
Fear the Walking Dead s04e14 'MM 54': Difficult decisions lead the group into uncertainty; Alicia delivers on a promise to Charlie.
In this behind the scenes video, the cast and creators discuss Morgan's encounter with new acquaintances and how they ultimately test his moral code:
The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be…together. In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now – as individuals and as part of the greater group – and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries – human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope.
