Where, at first, we thought we wouldn't have much to talk about, the further we discussed this episode, the more we learned about Elton, the zombie apocalypse as nature's "big f*ck you", and human nature as a whole (also, how many of us want Pluto's designation as a planet reinstated!)

[Episode 108] Season 6, Episode 3 of Fear The Walking Dead, "Alaska"

In our largely Althea-centric episode, we celebrate the sibling-esque friendship she has with Dwight. There's joy-on-tap with some characters where, before, there was none. This episode, in many ways, holds a mirror to the last few but, in other ways, shows how different they are and how far they've come (in mostly great ways)... and we, of course, go through it all!
