Fear's band of survivors discover that good intentions pave a road to hell in a rousing season premiere that further stakes out the series' unique identity while adding connective, bloody tissue to the broader Walking Dead mythos.
Nice to see a real intense, action-packed premiere. Gets the adrenaline and anticipation flowing.
It's gone from a zombie show about morally grey characters to one led Morgan Jones for goodness sakes... It's a crying shame that it's come to this. I am not particularly hopeful for this season, though they've surprised us before.
Not only did this moment bring up a startlingly awesome realization, but it also led to a character getting taken away and put in presumed danger.
Regardless of how it all plays out, it's clear that The Walking Dead universe is only getting tighter -- and bigger -- as it goes.
Not only does "Here to Help" raise the stakes considerably for our wayward group of survivors, it also raises the stakes for the show itself.
It's an optimistic turn of events that feels counter to the franchise's inherent nihilism, and also works to correct the one thing both shows in the franchise have struggled with in the past: pacing.
Perhaps this new connection to a bigger overarching story will make a once ancillary show more necessary viewing for hardcore fans. Let's just hope this season's new villains turn out to be more interesting than last season's murderous, rambling Martha.
The implications of the appearance of the Three Rings Group on Fear the Walking Dead are huge.
Fear the Walking Dead returned for its fifth season with a bang, but there was also an intriguing Rick Grimes Easter egg that may have teased a connection to the wider universe.
The tone feels completely different from the first few seasons. Now we have a show that stands on its own two feet and doesn't feel like a cash cow.
