After a two-week hiatus, Bleeding Cool's weekly review/recap of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead season 4 is back with a look at the penultimate episode before the mid-season break: 'The Wrong Side of Where You Are Now.'

Let me start with an earlier-than-usual spoiler waring: even though John Dorie (Garret Dillahunt) was left with a gaping bullet wound, he doesn't really factor into the episode except as a "bookend" — which is actually okay! This episode did an excellent job at converging the "Then" and "Now" timelines, leaving us guessing as to who the real "bad guys" are — and are we missing something important in all this?

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 as you check out our review of 'The Wrong Side of Where You Are Now,' followed by the official trailer and synopsis… let us know what you think!

Here's a look at the trailer and overview for this Sunday's mid-season finale, 'No One's Gone':

Fear the Walking Dead s04e08 'No One's Gone': Madison's decision to help an adversary has unintended consequences; John Dorie's life hangs in the balance.

In what was arguably the most intense scene from an episode overflowing with intense scenes — well, what can you say? It wasn't like Mel (Kevin Zegers) didn't warn them…

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.
