"Captive" is an unbalanced episode rife with uneventful chatter and bad character decisions, ending a brief storyline that feels pointless and incomplete.
This week's Fear the Walking Dead was an odd mix of the expected and unexpected, which resulted in an uneven episode overall.
Madison grew a lot at the end of this one. She earned her stripes, for sure.
Bless their hearts. Even though it's the end of the world on Fear the Walking Dead, Chris and Alicia were still indulging their guilty consciences in this week's episode - in the former's case, with bloody disastrous results.
Although much of "Captive" was sufficiently intense in that businesslike Fear kind of way, the sudden conclusion of Team Abigail's tussle with the flannel-wearing folks feels like a decently sized missed opportunity.
Something was missing from this episode, like a BLT without mayonnaise: all the ingredients in place but missing that special sauce to hold it together and make the whole sandwich worthwhile.
Things not to do during a zombie apocalypse: Literally everything everyone on this boat is doing, except for Nick.
After spending most of the hour on idle chit-chat and careful planning, the one sequence of actual action ends up closing the book on a potentially fruitful storyline, which never really got a chance to ripen.
Let's get it out of the way: No one is buying this Jack and Alicia thing.
In the end, our heroes sort of lamely fumbled their way into a victory.
Although the show seemed to be setting Connor up as some big threat for the Abigail crew to face, he is merely a pit stop along their path of problems, a mini-boss in a sea presumably holding much greater threats.
