Yes! Shades of the Lone Ranger: "Who was that masked man?"I don't know what has gone in the writers head but Fear doesn't feel same show any longer. Shelly and Dwight doing the horseman ritual is a bit too much. Dwight thought it was a bit too much, riding out like vigilantes.
Victor seems to have gathered a nice collection of sheep who have gladly traded their freedom of security. I doubt that he really wants to add anyone capable of seeding dissent in the flock, just rub their noses in his apparent success before they're ejected.
I suspect that the well-kept secret of tower egress/access will soon be discovered and provide a nice pathway for the walker horde to join the tower party.
My understand is that some of the moves are illegal, like the piledriver she did with one of the Dead. Am I right?The high point of this episode, for me, came when Mickey broke out her professional wrestling ring moves in the walker battle royale.
"I think it's the moment when Dwight sees those Polaroids with Eli, and he realizes that taking any kind of deal with Strand is tantamount to throwing in with Negan at the Sanctuary," co-showrunner Ian Goldberg explained on Fear the Walking Dead Episode Insider. "It is just a new iteration of that, and he will not let himself go there again."
Daryl (Norman Reedus) exiled Dwight from Virginia after Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) captured Negan to end the Savior War in The Walking Dead's Season 8, spurring Dwight's cross-country search for Sherry after she escaped the Sanctuary and disappeared during Season 7.
"There's just a lot of mistrust that plays on Dwight's own trauma from his past, what happened with Negan, and he's rightfully suspicious of Strand's motives," Goldberg said. "There is Strand looking to hunt down someone who escaped The Tower and saying that he has her best interests at heart. Seeing what Strand does to the Larsons speaks volumes about what Strand is willing to do to get what he wants."
The showrunner added of the Vic-tatorship: "This harkens back to the Strand that we saw throw Will off the roof in 'The Beacon.' This Victor Strand is not above doing some very morally gray actions to preserve what he's built and to hold on to who he's become."
705 is "a great showcase episode for Dwight and Sherry, but also for Aisha Tyler," Fear co-showrunner Ian Goldberg said on Fear TWD Episode Insider. "[Director] Lennie [James] brought fun to it with the wrestling component. This sequence was probably the most number of fun conversations we had, but there were certain things that we knew we wanted to get in there."
Goldberg and co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss knew Fear's first-ever Walkermania match would need "a walker's head bashed into a turnbuckle, we need the steel chair, we need the piledriver."
"We knew we wanted it to culminate with the 'Till Death Do Us Part,'" added Goldberg. "Dwight gets to work in tandem with Mickey to perform 'Till Death Do Us Part,' the ultimate finishing move of Dearly Beloved, which is just this beautiful moment of Dwight getting to kind of live a childhood fantasy."
No, but I do like the idea it encourages, that anyone can become a dictatorial despotic demagogue, without necessarily being an evil person.I don't think I'll ever find Strand as threatening as Negan.
I agree, as it detracts from that idea. Either he is a fool or he has lost the plot mentally. If so, then would his people still follow him? Hmm! On second thoughts....His dialog and pseudo-laughter are as comic as his jaunty scout leader hat.
It didn't seem likely Sherry and Dwight would split up, even if they disagreed. We've just had little speeches about how they had crossed continents looking for each other, fuelled only by their love for each other, but yet they will split up because of an argument over Strand?The low point was Sherry's split with Dwight to help Mickey find her, as had been accurately predicted, dead husband.
I don't know who had it first -- the BSA or Idi. With Stand's ego and mental instability, I would expect something more like the headwear Gaddafi sported:Is that a US scout hat? It looked like a Forage Cap to me, the kind favoured by Idi Amin. I thought it was meant to give a visual clue that Victor was a dictator in a similar vein to him?
