What a finale!
AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead has been an absolute SMASH hit, pulling in more viewers in its first year than parent series The Walking Dead did — though it’s still a ways behind how many viewers TWD currently has.
In Sunday night’s finale, there was quite a bit of action and one MAJOR death that in true Walking Dead fashion, we did NOT see coming!
Keep reading to find out the shocking moment (below)!
Last week’s episode surprised us with Griselda’s (Patricia Reyes Spindola) death and Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez) learning that everyone is infected.
This week had Daniel (Ruben Blades), Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis), and Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) heading off to rescue Liza, Nick (Frank Dillane), and Griselda.
After the group — or most of the group — reunites, Liza breaks the news that Griselda didn’t make it out and was infected.
They escape the compound where Nick and Daniel’s wife were being held but it’s in the final moments of the show that we get the biggest shock of all!
As the group heads to Strand’s (Colman Domingo) beach house, Liza takes a moment to go to the beach to reveal to Madison — and later Travis — that she’s been bitten.
After she explains what this means, Travis is forced to execute his ex-wife before she turns and comes back as a walker!
Talk about a rough time.
We’re definitely interested to see where this will take us in season two and what is sure to be some added tension between Travis and his son, Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie)
Though there is no official date set for Fear the Walking Dead to return, it has been picked up for 15-episodes for its second season!
What did you think of last night’s episode and the surprise at the end?!
