Fear the Walking Dead S06E09 Opener: June Wants Answers- And Revenge

As a viewer of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, you know by now just how big of a game-changer last week's series return episode "The Door" was- with John Dorie (Garret Dillahunt) dead and Dakota (Zoe Colletti) as his killer- and someone who had a whole bunch of truths to spill. So heading into this week's episode, the big pile of dynamite that is the growing war between Morgan (Lennie James) and Virginia (Colby Minifie) is ready to explode. Dakota (Zoe Colletti) is the best bargaining chip Morgan has against Virginia so there's no time for revenge/justice- yet. Meanwhile, Virginia wants her sister back- and she's ready to go Negan to get the job done. But as you're about to see from the opening minutes, there's the matter of a loved one- a husband- who needs to be buried. And more than that, June (Jenna Elfman) wants answers…

As for what viewers can expect from the next episode "Things Left to Do"? "We have been building toward a confrontation with Morgan and Virginia [Colby Minifie] since episode 601, and this episode we're finally going to deliver on it," co-showrunner Ian Goldberg teased. "We'll return to an important location that we saw in the premiere, but it will be in circumstances that are kind of flipped on their heads," added co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss. Fear the Walking Dead returns this Sunday night (and on Thursday for AMC+ subscribers)- now here's a look at the heartbreaking opening minutes to the episode:

Fear the Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 9 "Things Left to Do": Virginia and her followers reach a stalemate with Morgan's group, and Virginia's enemies begin to catch up with her. Directed by Michael E. Satrazemis and written by Nick Bernardone.

Now here's a look at the promo followed by a sneak preview that finds Virginia escalating her conflict with Morgan to a new level- threatening some "very bad things" Negan-style if Morgan doesn't deliver Dakota safe and sound:

As Morgan's (Lennie James) bid to free the remaining members of the group becomes bolder, Virginia (Colby Minifie) grows increasingly desperate to find her sister and protect the settlements from forces working inside and outside her walls. The second half of season six reveals the impact of what living under Virginia's control has done to each person in this group, who once saw themselves as a family. New alliances will be formed, relationships will be destroyed, and loyalties forever changed. When everyone is forced to take sides, they discover the meaning of, "The End is the Beginning."
