Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Preview: Is This Strand's Last Stand?

By now, viewers of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead know that the sixth season of the TWD spinoff series has been heading to a literally apocalyptic confrontation between Morgan (Lennie James) and our heroes and Teddy (John Glover), Riley (Nick Stahl), and his "The End is the Beginning" folks for the fate of the world. In yesterday's preview for "USS Pennsylvania," we saw Morgan reveal to Grace (Karen David) had a feeling he might not be coming back from this fight. But digging deeper into those teasers as well as these recently-released preview images for the series' June 6th return (yup, the show's skipping this weekend), we have this growing feeling of dread about Strand's (Colman Domingo) fate (and we still can't shake this vibe we're having about Grace). We're big fans of more Strand/Morgan moments together, but some of these looks and the tone behind some of Strand's responses to Morgan? Yeah, we're not feeling so go about things. Take a look:

In the following teaser for "USS Pennsylvania," Colman Domingo explains the importance of the communities coming together to be the "superheroes" they need to be and for Strand to prove that he can be the leader he believes he can be:

With everything on the line and the end nearing (whatever that may bring), Morgan looks have a heart-to-heart with Grace (Karen David) but she's not having it, and then the sobering reality of their situation settles in that Morgan isn't seeing himself making it back from this fight:

Finally, the cast and creative team take a look back at this past Sunday's episode for a deep dive into Teddy's dealings with Alicia and Dakota, and his endgame to bring about a "new beginning":
