"Do Not Disturb" gains ground by focusing on Travis and Chris' father/son relationship, but also struggles to successfully introduce a new potential villain to the proceedings.
Pretty much any shortcomings this episode had can be forgiven because of TK shouting "Protein!" upon finding a barn filled with chickens, even after the world ended.
It sometimes doesn't trust its core story enough, turning to familiar subplots when the main path is compelling enough.
I enjoyed the father/son time. I thought it was a good idea for Travis, as a character, to drop everything and focus on Chris.
Where Fear the Walking Dead stumbles is in simple dialogue; particularly the sort of dialogue necessary to establish characters.
The last two episodes were some of the better of the series. Unfortunately, this episode just wasn't up to par with them.
The show's creators reveal that they're willing to take storytelling shortcuts for the sake of canned dilemmas and superficial moral gray areas. Case in point: I wasn't moved by the shocked look on Travis's face at the episode's conclusion.
Well, it only took three episodes for Travis to learn what viewers knew since the pilot: his son Chris is the absolute worst.
The cold open was a nice touch.
Elena's no monster or Governor, but she's already morally compromised, which means she won't last long. The show simply has too many other characters to redeem (or justify) at this point to spend any time on Elena, so this all feels rather pointless.
Wherever this goes, it's exciting to see Fear at least attempt to go down the route of creating what may be a classic, tragic villain.
