It turns out that ‘Fear The Walking Dead’s season 1 finale left us with more questions than answers. Here’s all the things we need answered ASAP when the show returns!
On the Oct. 4 episode of Fear The Walking Dead, our group of survivors lost a major character, escaped the military’s plan to exterminate survivors, and finally started their post-apocalyptic journey together. However, twice as many questions are now looming over the series, characters, and their future together. WARNING: SPOILERS!
1.) Who — Or What — Is Abigail?
There is a lot of debate about Abigail and whether or not she’s a person, a boat, or both. While I’m relatively sure the yacht that Strand pointed out to Nick is definitely named Abigail, I also think she’s a person. Why? Well, there’s one scene in the second to last episode of FTWD‘s first season in which Strand trades his cuff links for Nick. You might remember that the soldier read the inscription of the cuff links and they were signed “A.” So, whether or not she’s alive or dead, A could very well be Abigail, no?
2.) How Will Chris React To Travis Killing His Mom?
The last time we see Chris during the season finale is a heartbreaking shot of him clutching Liza’s dead body after Travis shoots her. If you watched then you know that she revealed to Madison and Travis she had been bitten, but did not tell Chris before letting her ex-husband take her life. It’s unclear whether or not Chris knows that his dad killed his mom, or why, but he already has a lot of issues with Travis (and Madison!) so it’s sure to be interesting.
3.) What’s The Deal With Strand?
The mystery surrounding Strand continued, even after he welcomed the group into his (ridiculously gorgeous) home. One thing we know is that he’s loaded, but that doesn’t exactly mean much during a zombie apocalypse, does it? However, if people are still clinging to hope that the world will make a comeback, there’s a chance Strand’s money could really help the group survive for a while. Plus, we don’t know how the military caught him, or why, and we don’t really know why he decided to not only save Nick… but the entire group.
4.) Why Should We Be Afraid Of The Ocean?
You might have noticed that the last minute of the season finale is focused on the ocean. No, literally. As the camera pulls away from the cliff where Liza was killed, it zoomed in on the ocean in a mysterious fashion that lasted a bit longer than necessary. Can they really survive out on the water? Have post-apocalyptic pirates already taken over the ocean? Where will they go? That’s a ton of questions, but… that was super sketchy, no?
5.) Could Chris & Alicia Be A Thing?
I know it’s a weird question to ask, they are technically step siblings, but Chris and Alicia seem to have formed a real bond. It happened very quickly after Alicia brought Chris into one of the empty neighbors homes that they trashed, but he really stepped up to the plate when a soldier tried to get a little too hands-y with her. However, when Chris discovered his mother’s body on the rocks outside of Strand’s house, it was Alicia who stayed by his side. Of course Travis was having an emotional breakdown over what he just had to do, but still.
