WASHINGTON, September 13, 2015 – We invested ourselves into episodes one and two. We have seen the characters that will have the ability to survive – Madison Clarke (Kim Dickens) and her son Nick (Frank Dillane) are all absolutely here for the long haul. Tobias (Lincoln A. Castellanos), who we met in episode one, showed that he will be returning for the 2016 season, though we probably won’t see him again this season.
But he will be back.
Tonight’s episode “The Dog” has Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis), Liza Ortiz (Elizabeth Rodriquez) and son Chris Manawa (Lorenzo James Henrie) attempting to survive in Los Angeles where they have taken refuge in the Salazar household where they meet daughter Ofelia (Mercedes Mason), patriarch Daniel (Rubén Blades) and matriarch Griselda (Patricia Reyes Spindola) escaping the apocalypse trying to get back to Madison and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) who are defending their home from the suburban hordes.
We have had our first character death, Calvin (Keith Powers), Nick’s chameleon like dealer (seemed like a good guy, but he was a bad guy. Now he is a zombie) and tonight we might see Alicia’s boyfriend Matt (Maestro Harrell) turn zombie. Or not. We know it’s going to happen, so I doubt we will see him, but you might see him in the walker herds.
Predictions for tonight include seeing Travis step up to save his family and the Salazar’s in an attempt to return to Madison, Nick and Alicia. We will see Nick in the depth of his withdrawal realizing there is something worse than not having drugs while Madison and Alicia fight the Zombie hordes surrounding them.
This first season is setting the characters and story up for the 2016 season; Episode three will continue that growth.
