With an epic ending to The Walking Dead's eighth season "All Out War" on the horizon and promises of new beginnings with Fear the Walking Dead's fourth season, welcome walker-fighters and walker-bait to Dead Man Blogging: Bleeding Cool's The Walking Dead/Fear the Walking Dead Live-Blog!.
Oh…and did we forget to mention that TWD fans are finally going to learn how Lennie James' Morgan links all of this together? Because that's going to be really important…
But before we get started, let's take a few minutes to get ourselves reaquainted with where things stand with both series heading into AMC's "Survival Sunday" double-header:
The Walking Dead Episode 8×16 'Wrath': The communities join forces in the last stand against the Saviors as all-out war unfolds.
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.
