Me too, man. Me too.I found neither Charlie's mission to Strand's tower nor her whirlwind romance with Ali to be believable. When Ali's love-driven, idiotic mission to cut the tower beacon for Charlie ended with his becoming walker fodder, the only emotion I felt was a sense of relief.
I was kind of surprised that it hasn't happened already. What is keeping the Dead away, regularly supplied snack bags?Assuming that happens, does anyone think that conquering Strand Tower is going to be the solution they think it will be.?
Howard threatens to do the same to Charlie but backs down when June reminds him Strand's Tower needs someone with medical training. Accepting blame for failing to stop Charlie from going inside the building, June makes her a promise: "No matter how much time you have left, you will live to see Strand go down. I will do everything I can to make sure that happens."
On AMC+'s Fear the Walking Dead: Episode Insider, showrunner Ian Goldberg confirmed Charlie will soon succumb to radiation poisoning.
"Charlie and Ali connect right away for one simple reason: they're both young people in the apocalypse. They had to grow up way too fast," Goldberg said. "Neither of them have been able to have this kind of connection, you know, that sort of first love, butterflies in the stomach kind of feeling. And Ali helping her learn how to bowl is huge for her because it makes her feel like a kid, it makes her feel alive. It's not just surviving. She's actually living."
Goldberg added, "I think Ali recognizes as well that even though Charlie came to the tower with some negative intentions from his perspective, ultimately, it was all because she wants to have this normal life. And that's why Ali turns around, because he understands Charlie in a new way."
After Charlie's diagnosis, their talk about the butterflies is "front and center at Ali's mind, because he's realized Charlie's a bit like that butterfly now," Goldberg explained. "She is someone to him that is beautiful and is going to have a very short life because of her radiation exposure. So I think him freeing the butterflies is an act of wanting to show her how much he cares about her, but also because it really is a metaphor for Charlie."
That falls firmly into the category of "meh" for me.
I get the majority don't like this episode but I did.
But isn't that exactly why people don't like it? And it seems to be "lame" every week, which is a problem. Then you begin to wonder, is it worth continuing to watch it or not?The whole storyline was kind of lame,
A huge and obvious McGuffin if ever there was one.a rare butterfly for his collection that doesn't really have a purpose.
Ali, a never previously seen wannabe ranger
While on this improbable errand, he meets Charlie.
But he wasn't given a very big part was he? The whole point of this episode seems to be only to give a reason for Charlie to be written out.I liked seeing the romance blooming between the two young ones.
why Charlie? Charlie's 15 minutes of fame were over when she killed Nick.
Charlie wanting to live a normal life in the Victor tower was just too much.
Both seemed improbable.for Morgan to send her out on a sabotage mission ... man, I just couldn't believe it.
Unless she really is a master lockpicker and safe cracker, aged 13?Morgan was wrong to use Charlie, she is still a child at the end of day.
you must start to wonder about why she didn't show this side of her before. A burglar girl,
But that would have made a better story for her. Not, "I just want to live a normal life, and to do it inside Strand Tower" but instead, "I'm a criminal and this is the only life I know. I'd never make it as a farmer or a fisherman."she is what the world made her.
does anyone think that conquering Strand Tower is going to be the solution they think it will be.?
If it were me, I'd get as far away from that region as I possibly could, as quick as I could. It will always be a sick place with the radiation. Morgan has travelled right across the USA. He knows you can survive elsewhere. He doesn't know about the Civic Republic yet. So, staying there makes no sense at all as far as his character is concerned. The others, well, I'd take my chances and leave as well. It can't be any worse.I was kind of surprised that it hasn't happened already. What is keeping the Dead away, regularly supplied snack bags?
I think so too. Is that the reason he wasn't there?If Strand had been there I don't think he'd have sent Charlie to get the elevator parts, he'd have worked on winning her over.
Still unknown, and it wasn't told. I know some of his disappearances is because of his director role, but in storywise, he has a lot of holes. But you'll get to see what he's up and what happens to Charlie in next episodes.Where has Strand gone anyway? So far away that he can't be contacted on the radio?
