‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Season 2, Episode 10: Who Will Survive?
Episode 9 (entitled “Los Muertos”) of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead ended on a cliffhanger. So who will survive in Episode 10 (ominously entitled “Do Not Disturb”)? Let’s have a look at the odds of survival.
Spoiler alert: This article discusses Episodes 9 and 10 of Season 2 of AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.
In Episode 9 of Fear the Walking Dead, Madison Clarke (Kim Dickens) and Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) were drunk and trapped behind a bar with a horde of the infected trying to attack them. Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) was missing in action and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) had just worked out the undead were jumping from the balconies in an effort to get to Madison and Strand. Nick (Frank Dillane) was relatively safe by comparison having been accepted into a cult of the dead down in Tijuana. As for Travis (Cliff Curtis) and his son, Nick (Lorenzo James Henrie), Episode 10 (entitled “Do Not Disturb”) will delve into their fate.
So what are the odds of everyone surviving Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead? Let’s take a look.
Madison and Strand
Both of these characters are clearly intoxicated so their reaction time and accuracy will obviously be affected against the horde of the infected. From the image above, you can see they are well protected by the bar surrounding them — for the time being anyway, as the infected appear to be completely surrounding the bar. However, there has to be some way in and out of the bar. Whether the door swings out and is covered by the horde, thus making it hard for the infected to enter, or there is a door at the back left of the image leading out to what looks like glass doors behind, only by tuning into Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead will reveal the answers.
Another way these two could survive in Episode 10 is if Alicia appears to help. We know Alicia had worked out the infected were falling from the balconies in order to get to Strand and Madison, so perhaps she will appear at a crucial moment to help kill or distract the undead.
Speaking of Alicia, even if she does want to help her mother and Strand escape the horde of the infected, she might have a hard time reaching them as she has her own horde to deal with. At the end of Episode 9 of Fear the Walking Dead, Alicia had opened a door that revealed a large group of the undead. The trailer for Episode 10 shows she will have to escape this group before she can consider helping out downstairs.
Not only are Strand and Madison trapped in a corner, but Episode 9 also saw Alicia stuck with nothing but a balcony behind her to escape. We also see her jumping into a lift well, so things could get pretty bad for Alicia in Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead.
Also revealed in the image above and the official trailer for Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead is the fact that Alicia will meet up with an axe-wielding woman. Judging by the trailer, Alicia and this woman band together to help defend the undead. So, could this woman also help rescue Madison and Strand?
Ofelia disappeared without a clue in Episode 9 of Fear the Walking Dead. It is possible she jumped off the balcony just like the infected did as her mental state was pretty fragile. However, she could have also left the group for good. She could have also stepped out for a little air, or a quiet moment by herself, and is now, conveniently, in a position to save some of the other members of the group.
Travis and Chris
Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead is expected to center fairly heavily on Travis and Chris. The last time we saw them, Chris was not coping well with others and Travis had taken him away to try and help. Keeping him isolated obviously hasn’t worked very well though as the trailer for Episode 10 reveals they meet up with some new people. This does not look like a good thing either as the trailer ends with Travis walking alone after telling someone not to shoot. Whether this was Chris being shot or not is unclear.
Nick has finally discovered a place containing people who have similar beliefs to Celia Flores (Marlene Forte) in regard to the infected. However, even after finding like-minded people, he is still questioning everything, such as why Alejandro (Paul Calderon) believes he is immune to the bite of the undead. While it seems like Nick will be safe here in Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead, it looks like if he ever wants to leave Tijuana, he might have to risk his life to do so.
