This episode of Fear the Walking Dead showed us the events leading up to the separation of Chris and travis. You know what? I just didn’t care. Chris suddenly being in this “kill or be killed” mentality was 100% unwarranted. Travis leaving him was 100% unnecessary. (Especially unnecessary since Chris and his group arrive at the hotel at the end of the episode).

Moreover, a quick parallel was made between Nick and Chris, as both are sons that both Madison and Travis have lost. Other than that, “Date of Death” had no substance.

The episode starts with where Travis and Chris’s story left off, with a hole in one of the three musketeers legs (their names escape me, proving how empty characters they were). Travis patches up the wound and several days pass, yet the other two boys decide that their friend is not healing fast enough, so what’s their next course of action? Killing him, of course! Naturally! (Sarcasm, in case you weren’t able to tell the tone of my words).

I mean, killing somebody just because you’re antsy to get moving is not just survival of the fittest, it’s completely psychopathic (especially with somebody who you apparently knew since you were six years old). These musketeers aren’t real people, aren’t believable people, just stereotypical post apocalyptic survivors. Why, though? Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson have written some amazing characters in the past, why are these so thoughtless? Because Fear the Walking Dead is focusing on the apocalypse itself, not the people experiencing it, which is a huge problem. Post apocalyptic stories aren’t good because of the apocalypses, they’re good because of the post. The aftermath, and how the ones that remain deal with it physically and emotionally. Yes, I know that Fear the Walking Dead is post apocalyptic, but they’re still focusing on the apocalypse as a whole, focusing too broadly.

Whatever, I may not be making myself totally clear, but I digress. They kill the third musketeer via slug in between the eyes. Then Chris joins the rest as they leave the farm. And why doesn’t Travis force him to stay with him? Because the show needs drama, that’s why. The majority of conflicts in S2 have occurred only for the sake of conflict, which should not be the case. Unless Chris has always been a psychopath unable to feel compassion even for his own father (something that we have not seen any evidence for in the past) what he did was not warranted.

The show ends with Madison informing her daughter Alicia that her father’s car accident was no accident at all. She then says it’s a suicide. But let me just ask: why? Why was this added to the last four minutes of the episode? Because of what I’ve just stated in the last paragraph.

Conflict for conflict, drama for drama.

Alicia finding out that her father killed himself doesn’t teach us more about him. It doesn’t teach us more about anybody, oh, well, except that Madison is even a worse mother than I originally thought. Keeping such a secret from your daughter is unforgivable, in my opinion. She claimed that it was to spare her children’s feelings. Yet, if I may quote Allan Grant, adventure archeologist from the critically acclaimed Jurassic Park:

“The worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions”.
