Ladies and gentleman, it’s that time again. If you were anything like me, you were glued to the fate of the Fear the Walking Dead crew and what happened to them next after Los Muertos.
‘Grotesque’ picks up right after the mid-season finale, and the episode seems to follow mostly Nick and his crusade across the mexican desert. This is definitely a similar side of the story as The Walking Dead, as Nick meets up with lots of zombies and even roving bands of marauders and wild dogs.
In this mid-season premiere we find out more about the events before the zombie apocalypse concerning Nick and Madison. We mostly get a glimpse into Nick and his rehab as well as events right before the downfall of society. Furthermore, there was also the introduction of a new character: Luciana (Danay Garcia), who apparently seems to be in charge of a colony of survivors. We only get a brief introduction of her, so we will have to wait and see what part she plays in the overall story.
All in all, ‘Grotesque’ wasn’t really so much an episode focused on the main storyle, but it was more about presenting backstories.
