Fear The Walking Dead "Sicut Cervus" Review: What Comes After

Fear The Walking Dead S02E06: "Sicut Cervus"

You guys know me; usually I fill these reviews with discussions of theme and character, perhaps sometimes more than shows like Fear The Walking Dead warrant. I'll get to that stuff—your favorite stuff, I'm sure—in a moment. First though, let's talk about that opening sequence. I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of The Walking Dead universe, but was this the first time we've ever seen people shift from "seemingly fine" to "bleeding from the eyes, seemingly turned" in such a short period of time? On TWD and Fear, people are generally dead or horribly injured before we see signs of zombification (even if everyone, alive or undead, is technically infected). How did that happen so quickly? It was another surreal, stirring teaser for Fear, but I'm trying to figure out if we're supposed to pull any additional meaning from it. 

Trying to parse out meaning from "Sicut Cervus" isn't challenging, but instead loaded. This is the penultimate episode of Fear's first half-season, meaning it had to move some pieces into place for a presumably momentous midseason finale next week, but also introduce some things that might have a longer, broader impact on future Season 2 episodes. Thus, the total result wasn't tepid or boring or full of missteps; it just felt like a breather before whatever bigger (and probably bloodier) events come around the bend. 

Some of my hesitance is a byproduct of minor expectations—expectations fostered by the show this season. For multiple weeks now, Fear has been navigating its characters toward Baja and Jonathan's compound, methodically building tension as to how the group would make it to this new location—especially given Luis's note that he only planned for two people—and what would happen once they arrived. While there's nothing wrong, in theory, with subverted expectations, it was a bit odd that the actual mechanics of making it through the last leg of the Baja trip were far easier, or handled far quicker, than it would have seemed just an episode ago. Sure, poor, frustrated Luis took a bullet in the gut from the officials he was planning to bribe for entry, but other than that, Strand and company zoomed right past any barricade and made their way to shore. No amount of hand waving away with lines about "the bigger danger" on land could eschew the fact that there wasn't much resistance to begin with.

That danger did arrive, of course. Those parishioners with blood coming from their eyes? They reappeared just in time to corner Team Abigail, but only temporarily. Credit to the Fear team for parsing out its walker attack action relatively well, and for crafting solid sequences like this one where large groups of fresh walkers assault a sizeable number of the show's core characters. Bigger is usually better. 

Likewise, "Sicut" smartly used that walker siege to kickstart already-simmering concerns involving Chris, Daniel, and Nick, with all three men temporarily freezing mid-battle and nearly causing huge problems for themselves in the process. Chris, increasingly fragile and frustrated by the realization that Madison told Travis about his execution of Reed, briefly chose not to help his would-be stepmother in the heat of the battle. Daniel, meanwhile, continued to be haunted by the horrible acts committed his past, as he almost got bit while remembering a time he, presumably, killed a young—non-zombie—boy. Finally, Nick simply succumbed to the horror all around him, finding it hard to keep pummeling the undead despite their dogged pursuit of the living. Each of these moments were well-shot and well-told during the walker's assault, and followed up just as effectively in subsequent scenes once the squad made it inside Jonathan's unbelievably large compound.

The problems with Chris, somehow, remain Fear's most palpable storyline. Instead of representing the character's emotional problems as full-on blubbering or completely broken blank stares, Chris has become a walking contradiction—saying one thing and finding himself hard up to control while he does another. Once Alicia confronted him for not trying to save Madison, Chris did exactly what he did last week with Reed: tried really, really hard to convince other people and himself that he didn't make a bad mistake. And like Madison, Alicia wasn't buying it, forcing Chris to make threats, sort of. 

These threats weren't from a place of pure evil or hatred, but confusion. Chris knows he's spiraling, realizes that people don't believe his justifications, and still help but note that he'll probably do it again—and to his own step-sister if necessary. It's a weird story to tell, but one that we don't see too often because these kinds of breakdowns are usually played much bigger and even much faster. Chris is out of control, but he's in just enough control to know what he's capable of doing. 

His actions didn't just impact Alicia, however. Once the truth came out, suddenly Madison and Travis were on opposing sides of an issue that went far beyond where to steer the yacht or who to let aboard. It's no surprise then that the heated debate was their best scene of this half season. The stakes are so much higher when the argument is about kids and family instead of nautical protocol, and the show suddenly remembered its own history just enough to give the conversation another kick. Madison rightfully illustrated that Chris has gone to a dark place, but Travis correctly noted that they needed to rally behind him then, just like they did with Nick all those times he fall off the wagon. The season's focus on search-and-rescue missions and weird nemeses of the week has left little quality time for Madison and Travis as an actual couple with a non-traditional family unit. This scene was a nice reminder of what the show can get out of that kind of material, particularly when Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis are free to just act.

The subsequent compound-based scenes with Daniel and Nick were less satisfying, if only because it's unclear where they're headed just yet. Both men encountered Celia, Luis's mother and Jonathan's caretaker, to very different results. While Daniel struggled with the compound's "no weapons" policy and disagreed with Celia's decision to simply round up all the infected in an underground cellar, Nick quickly took the compound's matriarch, bearing his soul about the horrors that he's already experienced since the outbreak. 

Again, these scenes worked totally fine in the context of this episode, there's just too many missing pieces to evaluate them right now. Daniel's issues have been long-simmering, but his inherently quiet nature means that we don't exactly know what's going on. He's breaking down without his wife, that's for sure; what else though? With Nick, the long game is definitely in play. Transitioning into the wise—and wise-cracking—younger member of the group can only go so far, so it's not shocking to see his demons re-emerge. How they manifest, and what Celia's role is, remains to be seen.

More broadly, Celia's introduction yet again demonstrated that Fear can create fascinating characters for the core folks to encounter. She appeared to be extremely competent, smart, and fully in charge of Jonathan's compound, and her stated beliefs about what the walkers represent and what they mean in the context of her religious ideology, are the sort of wrinkles that breathe life into the show's familiar "right" and "wrong" discourses. In just one episode, Celia enchanted Nick, faced off with Daniel, and rubbed Madison the wrong way; that's an effective use of one's time, wouldn't you say?

Still, you have to wonder about the show's long-term plans with a character like Celia. Fear the Walking Dead has already proven that it has no problem moving on from compelling threats for the sake of moving the story forward. Heck, even Jonathan exited stage left after just two episodes—one of which was a flashback—because Strand couldn't commit to his planned suicide once Jonathan's condition took a turn for the worse. That was another fine selection of scenes that, on a basic level, paid off some of the stuff established in prior episodes. Strand really loved Jonathan, but his survival instinct is too strong (or his commitment to what Jonathan called a very "Shakespearian" plan was just too fragile, either way). And yet, I can't help but wonder how the show could have used Jonathan and Dougray Scott for another couple of episodes, minimum. Was there really a need to ditch both him and Luis in just a few weeks? (Luis might reappear, but he won't be himself.)

Anyway, the mass of walkers trapped in that cellar combined with the need for a large-scale action sequence in the midseason finale suggests that something very bad is going to happen very soon. Let's hope that Celia and the stop at Thomas' compound isn't just another missed opportunity pushed aside after some deadly action. We'll find out next week. Midseason finale time.



NOTES

– That kid totally tossed a dog town into the cellar for the walkers to eat, right? I had to watch that twice and I'm still in awe. 

– People who pay more attention: what's the significance of the owl, either in the context of the show or beyond?

– Do we care that everyone on Team Abigail seems extremely adept at weaponry and combat already? Even Ofelia was out there loading up on head shots. 

– Midseason finale predictions. Someone important has to die, right? I'm guessing Daniel, if only because Ofelia wouldn't matter and there's still story to tell Chris, Nick, and Alicia.

Wow! The reviewer is reallyclueless about the opening sequence. ^^

So is FTWD season 2 copy-pasting that awful TWD season 2 storyline with Celia as a deadlier version of Hershel?
Ugh!!!

Still hate Kim Dickens and therefore, Madison. Seriously how is this chick able to score lead roles in top television shows? Why does everyone adore her? I just want to smack her one-look face into oblivion. And she has zero chemistry with any of her costars especially the ones playing people she loves.

So Luis, Connor, and Thomas are all dead but we still have Chris, Ofelia, and Alicia...yay? And something tells me we're going to lose one of the two remaining characters that I actually enjoy watching.

I wonder I would be able to keep my job if my commitment to my work were as half baked as this writers. What is the point of writing an article as a reviewer when you can't even keep track of the story or the name of the characters that you are paid to review? This is like a food critic saying, the creamy pasta sauce was pretty good, although a bit too dense, when in fact he was reviewing a tomato dish.

I was actually excited about characters like Thomas Abigail and Luis. Really wanted to see how a rich entrepreneur would handle the Walking Dead world. Especially with Strand talking about "The Council" in flashbacks, I'm sure they can still use it for Strand's storyline but really would've liked it if they kept those 2 around longer.

I have decided that Season 1 was superior to season 2. And that's really something because season 1 wasn't entirely great. But it had actual suspense, even if that suspense was due to Travis being a bonehead. We got to see LA in the time at the beginning of the outbreak when no one really knew what was happening, but there were theories. We saw the military and figured out the military were the bad guys. There was fighting and disagreement among the family, there were characters who were coming to terms with the end of the world and those who didn't get it. And the writers did a pretty ok job of showing this on the screen. This season, we've gotten The Prison on the Seas and now Hershel and His Farm 2.0. The writers have really lazily jumped from a TWD prequel to TWD: Baja. There has not been one original story this entire season. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if on the next episode Madison takes Chris out and says look at the cactus, Chris, just look at the cactus.

So basically we are watching Hershel 2.0 with Sofia's storyline????

and i am sure Chris' storyline was already told on TWD too

with a few good episodes in the middle - the show has gone back to being bad :/ ugh

I hope Chris dies in the mid-season finale but i have a feeling it will be Ofelia or Daniel

The spin-off is superior in a lot of ways... for once, characterization and dialogues are handled better IMO.
Chris is annoying, but also starting to become increasingly curious. "Curious Chris" then.
Nick's process is fascinating. No, the zombies ain't really dead, that's for sure. They don't decompose, and we all know from TWD's season 1 that even the CDC couldn't find any virus, bacteria or whatever. I like this teasing with the overall mysteria of that world.

I don't think Strand chickened out of the planned suicide. He'd already promised he wouldn't go through with it. I believe he just let Celia think he would do it so she would leave him alone with Jonathan (that's name right?). That way he could shoot him in the head and ensure she wouldn't get her hands on his undead corpse.

"but was this the first time we've ever seen people shift from "seemingly fine" to "bleeding from the eyes, seemingly turned" in such a short period of time? On TWD and Fear, people are generally dead or horribly injured before we see signs of zombification"

That wasnt zombification. The crazy lady from the villa poisoned them because they were killing the zombies and she's fucking nuts. How did you miss that?

Of course, you spent most of the review calling Thomas Jonathon so clearly FTWD doesnt have your entire attention.

Exactly. It came off as bizarre the firs time I saw it, but after the reveal that lady was Celia-killing the parishioners it made sense; we've seen the eye-bleeding sickness in the prison arc of TWD, and it acted quickly there as well, so to believe her when Strand asked how long it'd take--"Not long" could easily mean minutes, which is in-line with how fast the parishioners started showing symptoms.

A pretty good episode all around, I agree the "border crossing," after getting so much hype, was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it letdown, but I enjoyed the character interactions for the remainder. Strand's plot with Abigail was particularly hard to watch as it hit very close to home.

can you blame him? I didn't even notice that he was using the wrong name since I barely know have the characters names anyway. I know, Alicia, Nick, and now celia. Really, FTWD is so disappointing. Such great potential but it seems the entire thing is done lazily. Like the scene on the boat? Was putting everyone in the engine room while all the action happened up top supposed to be suspenseful? were we supposed to bite our nails when we heard the gun shots? And then they just sailed through like nothing. Ugh

Okay, sorry, when did Thomas die? Celia was having a conversation with Strand in the bedroom saying she finally thought Strand was good enough for Thomas, because he had decided to go with him. She had the Communion wafers laid out for them to take. Strand was still sitting there when she left. I feel bad that their turning Chris into the new Lizzie. She acted really crazy at least. Chris is having some kind of break down for sure, but to say he's too far gone at this point, is kind of premature. I guess as a parent I can understand where both Madison, and Travis are coming from. I really don't want to see Travis kill his son, too me that would destroy him. Not to mention hello, try something new . I'm really sick of these crazy people keeping walkers alive, enough already. What a convenient plot device. I think it would be better for Chris to come through this somehow, or else again, it's been done.

I speculate that Chris went into Alicia's room wanting to talk (maybe to apologize for the threats from earlier or beseech her again not to tell anyone about what he did during the fight), but when the gun went off while he had a knife in his hand he looked like a complete psycho so he ran.

I mean, I just can't fathom him going in there to kill Madison and Alicia, because that would be TOO QUICK of an escalation even for this show.

If he wanted to talk why pick up that knife? Why creep over there in the middle of the night in the first place? He'd already threatened her, there wasn't a need for another go at her.

That gunshot is what saved Madison & Alicia

Why did Chris pick up the knife? No idea. Why did he creep in there in the middle of the night? Honestly, I couldn't tell ya. I mean, Chris is a pretty weird, creepy kid from what we've all seen.

However, I will say this: I highly doubt Chris went in there to kill anyone. I mean, he didn't even know Alicia had told anyone about what he'd done yet, and attempting to kill two people with a knife, even if they were both asleep, would've been nigh impossible to do without getting caught/drawing suspicion onto himself. So, I see no reason for why Chris would've chosen that route, and the show hasn't done a good enough job of showing how crazy he is yet to make me believe Chris wouldn't give an eff about doing something like that and having to face the consequences/not understanding the consequences he'd have to face for doing something like that.

I agree. I don't think he planned on killing them. I think he went for the knife because Celia made them give up their weapons and he's reached the point where he needs to have a weapon in his possession. Does that mean they should trust Chris? Hell no.

I continue to grow increasingly tired of Chris with every episode. I don't need him or any other character in FTWD to be completely likeable, but with nothing at all about him or his story arc being either likeable or more than marginally interesting, he detracts substantially from the show by occupying time that could be used to develop other characters. Barring something unexpected, I'll be disappointed if Chris survives much longer.

I was also disappointed at seeing the walkers in the cellar. Been there, done that with keeping turned family et al in the barn on TWD. What's next, the group holing up in a prison?

After what I thought was the best episode either franchise has put out in a long time, this episode had it's usual levels of Walking Dead silliness, but not crazy amounts. It did however start on a story that's just been DYING to be told...religious beliefs and the zombie apocalypse.

Sure, there was Hershel and his bible and praying for divine intervention. Booooring. Now, a Mexican spin on a literal Dia de los Muertos on the other hand, now THAT is something I can get behind.

Death, and what happens after, is a pretty significant part of every religion. That we get to see a non-WASP perspective I think is pretty cool...even if it does come with a side of crazy, which if we're being honest, is pretty much everybody who falls into the hyper religious category.

That zombies are a physical manifestation of dead spirits is a theme I'd real like to see played out to its fullest. Being TWD, I know that'll never happen, but I'd still quite like to see it.

I don't know if this is something George R. Romero has already done, but if he hasn't, he should.

Add to this Chris embracing his inner Jack Torrance and the building conflict between Madison and Travis, and don't look now, we had two pretty good consecutive episodes. Which, in Walking Dead terms, we're due for a giant stinker.

"Chris has become a walking contradiction—saying one thing and finding himself hard up to control while he does another"


Chris' apparent turn to the dark side, for me, falls into the, "Well, this escalated quickly" category. Sure, with his zombie killing, mercy killing and then straight up murder, he's been trending this way. But to go from that to risking Madison's life and threatening both she and Alicia...? That's a quick turn...even by Walking Dead standards.

It's an interesting enough story line, so his all of a sudden transformation is probably just one of those things I'll have to chalk up to TWD's impatience and lack of development.

"Once the truth came out, suddenly Madison and Travis were on opposing sides"

Unlike Chris, this was a very nice theme transition. After what's his face was telling Chris that he was an outsider and that when push came to shove, he'd be cut loose, Madison's "my daughter" brought that idea into play.

I don't know how long these two have been together, but that Madison's default reaction is "us" and "you" seemed to hammer home the fact that she really isn't very nice and that there's a fault line running through this family that's certain to fracture...sooner rather than later.

"And yet, I can't help but wonder how the show could have used Jonathan and Dougray Scott for another couple of episodes, minimum"

Perhaps I missed a scene because I'm not entirely sure a Scotsman wound up in Baja with a Mexican mother, but it doesn't matter. Dougray Scott only would have made the show and it's character dynamics better.

One can only when he was cast, the caveat was, "Sure, I'll do your show, but only for a few scenes in a few episodes because it's kind of bollocks"

They are killing people of too quickly for no good reason. And they are killing those people,who had potential to become really great characters. Luis and Connor sure we didn't see them die per say,but I am going with that they are dead-dead. Tom is clearly dead now. And they better not kil Daniel ! These are serious misplays that Fear has going on. Stop killing good characters off for no reason.

Yeah wtf are they thinking? They keep these boring ass characters around while eliminating all the interesting ones. Tobias, Luis, Connor, Thomas, even Reed as annoying as he was was a character that brought life to the show. When they kill Daniel (cuz you know it's coming) I'm just gonna *headdesk* at how clueless they are. I had hopes that Alex would stick around, and she may show up again, but for now she appears to be gone too.

Yes Reed was also interesting character. Did they kill Tobias? Didn't they just go their own way?
I wouldn't call current cast boring..well maybe Alicia at the moment,but I like them all at the moment. I am really sad to see Connor,Luis,Tom,Reed gone for no real good reason,just that they needed some deaths on show. They should've saved them all till season 3 or early season 4, develop them and then started killing some.
They can have such an amazinh story of survial,if they just avoid time jumps. From food,wates issues,to shelter issues...people who started as enemies could become great allies,lovers,whatever. And then whole winter survival,which TWD just skipped like it was no biggie....

Man, can we please go back to Brooding Chris? I mean, I thought he was bad, but Psycho Chris is even worse. First he kills Jesse McCartney's not so beautiful soul, which was a somewhat harsh reaction to Reed's taunt. He was a bad dude though, so I was pretty much okay with it even though he, in typical Chris fashion, had pretty much screwed things up for the group.

But now he was willing to let Madison get killed because she talked to Travis about what happened? And then threatened Alicia when she confronted him about what she saw? Kid's sinking fast. I wonder he'll kill someone, thus prompting Travis to make him look at the flowers, or if Travis will be the one whose death prompts another member of Team Abigail to end Chris?

I LOVED Fear TWD this week. The story is just so well written. I thought it was going to get boring as soon as they went into that safe house but no, the apocalypse has completely taken over these survivors minds and they can't control it. They're all losing it, Chris wanting to kill Alicia? Chris was going to let Madison die! Nick now thinks the Walkers are still living people!
Definitely can't wait for next weeks episode, it's going to be super great.
I’ve also been following this survival guide. It's got some amazing tips I can even start using now. At least I know I’ll be safe when the world ends haha. http://the-walking-dead-fans.com. Good luck out there everyone.

was this the first time we've ever seen people shift from "seemingly fine" to "bleeding from the eyes, seemingly turned" in such a short period of time?

Well, it happened on TWD when Rick's group got hit by some wicked flu strain, but here, I believe the implication was that Luis's mother poisoned the communion wafers, which the entire congregation had consumed moments earlier. This lady is like a Mexican Governor/Hershel amalgamation.

"I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of The Walking Dead universe, but was this the first time we've ever seen people shift from "seemingly fine" to "bleeding from the eyes, seemingly turned" in such a short period of time?"

"How did that happen so quickly?"

dude they didn't just suddenly turn, their eucharist was poisoned. seriously man come on keep up if you are goning to write a review

Yeah ! But at least Hershel was keeping those walkers in the barn in hope that one day he'll find a cure for their "sickness" (him being a doctor and all...), and Celia thinks their the "next step" and even kills people... I mean even Thomas got bit because I think she sent Thomas with the those pills for the church people...

Recycled storylines. I've been saying all season that this is not the prequel to TWD or showing the beginning of the za anymore, this is just TWD with a different set of characters and a different place.

Is it just me or did Cory keep referring to Thomas as Jonathan throughout this review...?

There is no Jonathan in the show (checked the cast on imdb). It's Thomas Abigail.
