In the latest episode of “Fear the Walking Dead,” we find ourselves back in Los Angeles, and this time around an old friend comes knocking at our doors. Nick struggles with becoming a father to his daughter while Travis attempts to bring peace between rival gangs by meeting on neutral ground.
“Fear the Walking Dead” 7×08 Recap: “Padre” is an episode of the AMC television series, “Fear the Walking Dead”. This recap will discuss what happened in this episode.
Alicia is back in action! Now it’s your turn to hear her account of surviving the nuclear fallout. Alicia was ultimately compelled to confront Strand after maybe uncovering a technique to locate Padre’s whereabouts.
Let’s go through everything again!
It’s going to get a little spoilery!
First and foremost
Teddy walks away to celebrate his end of the world as Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) is held up in a holding cell in the first episode. She knows it’s more than a room when she eventually travels farther. It’s an armory, and she’s not alone in there. She’s stranded down there with a slew of Teddy’s fans, all of whom are eager to accompany her to their “fresh beginning.” She pushes one off of herself and into a tree-tied walker, then snatches his rifle and flees. Arno (Spenser Granese), a member of this group, advises the others to give her time to adjust.
As she searches for a way out, she meets Will, another person who is incarcerated like her. He suggests a different path to go. Only because he’s been hidden does he survive Teddy’s assault on the refuge. He wants to assist her in finding a way out, but he also needs her to keep Teddy’s people occupied.
She goes as far as being taken to her new room, where she finds a file labeled P.A.D.R.E on a desk. Will is swiftly detected and is on the verge of being eaten by the walking tree when she intervenes. He cries a bit, which is understandable. The Senator is the walker who is tethered to the tree.
When they discuss going to locate Padre, Will says he’ll guide her but won’t accompany her. He, like June, is terrified of going to the surface. She forbids him from doing so, and the two pursue the Senator all the way to the drainage pipes and then through them. The pipes, however, collapse in, trapping Alicia and Will.
Morgan (Lennie James) invites Alicia to return to the Tower in the present, but she refuses since she does not want to see Strand (Colman Domingo). Morgan’s assistance is what she seeks. Senator is the name she gives to a walker she brings out. Senator Vasquez of Oklahoma is the man on the street.
Padre must be located. She has no idea where it is, but it is a secure location and a nice place to begin over. The Senator, it seems, is aware of Padre’s whereabouts. Alicia is at a loss for words, but she assures Morgan that the Senator will inform them. Alicia pleads for his faith before handing him a walker poncho in order to sort things out.
Morgan is concerned about her health as they pursue the walking Senator. While she claims a variety of reasons for her behavior, ranging from hunger to lack of sleep, we’re not certain it’s simply those difficulties. Strand’s men pursue them as they continue to pursue the Senator, shooting and almost killing all of them. They discover a fast way out when Strand catches up with them.
Honesty and truthfulness
Morgan’s befuddlement reaches a breaking point, and when Alicia fails to clarify the Senator or Padre, Morgan threatens to behead the walker. He doesn’t trust her when she says the walker has lingering memories. We’re reminded of his son’s death in The Walking Dead, and it’s a painful reminder.
Strand and his men capture Alicia, but she refuses to inform them about the Senator. She’s not about to put up with his sanctimonious sergeant dictatorship. She is adamant about not having anything to do with the Tower. He begs her to give up Padre, fearful that she would finish up like so many others who have killed attempting to reach the fabled location.
Strand orders his men to assassinate Morgan and then the Senator when Alicia denies him once again. Alicia gets bitten by the Senator in an attempt to fight back and rescue them both. We’re all trembling, holding our breaths, and we’re all aware of what this implies. Our queen’s fight against the undead is on borrowed time.
The Senator bites her in a flashback when she and Will are trapped in the tunnel. What exactly does this imply? How has she managed to stay alive for so long after being bitten, just to be bitten again? Will delivers an impassioned speech to Alicia, refusing to let her give up. He even acknowledges that he doesn’t want to be anywhere else than with her.
The Return of Mad Max
We immediately learn that she is alright when she shows Morgan her arm. Her arm has been severed, the bones cleaned, and placed in a metal cast to serve as a memorial or trophy. Furiosa is a scary film that is extremely Mad Max. Even yet, it’s a very Alicia Clark thing to do. Much like Aaron’s powerful medieval mace, which he used in lieu of his missing arm on The Walking Dead.
We discover that, despite Alicia’s survival, Will made the vow in the season opener that he couldn’t murder her. We’re not going to lie: we’re hoping Will hadn’t bit it because we’re growing to like him in these flashbacks.
The Senator ultimately brings Alicia and Morgan to the Tower, giving Alicia optimism that it was Padre for a brief time. As if it wasn’t bad enough, Alicia admits that her amputation didn’t stop the infection in time. It’s spreading, and her body is battling it but failing. Morgan is required by her because she requires him to continue after she has left.
We can’t bear the thought of losing our last Clark. It’s excessive, but there’s a chance we won’t have a choice.
Strand approaches the two as they approach the Tower and offers Alicia and her people a place to stay. She wants to know that even if she isn’t present, they will be protected. After convincing him to commit, Alicia notices Will creeping on the ground in full walker form not far away. She formally decides she is done with Strand in the minute it takes her to put him out of his agony. I’m done with his taking so much from her and abandoning her in such a vulnerable state. She’s going to steal from him immediately. She intends to seize the Tower.
“We’re going to war,” says the narrator. — Clark, Alicia
While we’re disturbed, we’re smitten with the shadow of Debnam-old Carey’s character Lexa from The 100, who appeared at the close of the episode. Powerful, amazing, and if this is indeed her last stand (which we hope it isn’t), we hope it’s a heck of a stand.
