Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
First off, I just want open this review up with a quick shout out — to the show itself, to Fear the Walking Dead — for coming together nicely this season and, arguably, elevating itself up and over the original series. Who would have thought that killing off one of the show’s stronger characters (stronger, at least, in the back half of Season 2) would help the series find a bolder voice while also better utilizing its unique landscape.
That being all that now, I wasn’t crazy about every aspect of “Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame” (named after the Bukowski collection). Mostly, it was the contentious pairing of Strand and Daniel as they headed back to the hotel that felt a bit sore – with all of their trek based on Strand’s lie about Ofelia. Last week’s chapter, “100,” was the best outing this show’s ever had, though somehow the actual team up of Strand and Daniel, on the road, made for a frustrating ride. Fortunately, their side saga didn’t take up too much time and Ofelia’s whereabouts were at the heart of it. So as much as we all wonder, week after week, where she’s at, there’s at least one faction of this show that’s actively searching for her.
