Now we have one last episode before us, before the first season „Fear the Walking Dead“ comes to an end. In the 5. Episode brings „Fear the Walking Dead“ his characters a bit more. The penultimate episode sets for the final, in which the worst must be feared, go out some foundations, and we can of it, that it will again go really round!
In Folge 3 Of “ Fear the Walking Dead“ the military had its first appearance and first came new hope in L.A. on. Would the soldiers finally be able to make back peace and order? But soon, they showed their true colors: You have the Weapons, they have the power! In Folge 4 „Not Fade Away“ got our series families to feel the own body. The supply of fresh water and electricity is no longer guaranteed, as well as the medical care. So it comes, that a doctor, Dr. Exner, the people, who are sick or injured, ado can carry away in an alleged hospital nearby. However, the whole thing reminds almost more like a kidnapping than an ambulance. So Nick and Griselda be taken, but Daniel, who wanted to accompany his wife, was not allowed. In the unadorned result 5 named „Cobalt“ we now see, what families do, to save their loved ones and what the military actually before.
After the military has thus taken the lead, the circumstances have changed for the worse, despite an initially comfortable and guaranteed safety from the walking dead. The population grows restless in the face of occupation and lack of information, life is again rough and has since been rigorously taken action against potential threats at the latest, is the villain in the safety zones established. Lieutenant Moyers gives the hard-line military a face. However, he remains quite colorless and one-dimensional, despite some nice sayings. And yet he can inform us in his few interactions after all, about the moral status of the military. He leaves with his troops exercised little mercy. 50-Hour shifts, Threats of violence, a disturbing sarcasm. The soldiers Knowledge far more than the viewer or Travis, who went on tour with them this intimidation. You can assess the status of the fight against the smoldering Apocalypse better and if they desert and make the acre want, to their own families (perhaps before the Military) save, Speaks Volumes.
Travis tried, come across commander Moyers of information and manages finally, drive off with the soldiers, to go to the hospital. But on the way there is the troupe twice stopped: Moyers forcing Travis through the telescope of a .50 to look caliber sniper rifle and a Zombie to kill. The previously gullible and naive Travis struggles with the challenge and can not bring in the end. Finally, he is more peaceful and when he can go a violent confrontation out of the way, he does too. The interesting aspect of the figure, Travis now quite like conceive, that the waitress named Kimberley is beyond redemption and should probably be even redeemed. He may, however, simply can not bring itself to this step. Ob Travis‘ Pacifism has profound reasons, remains to be seen. But while his wife can even quickly make friends with Daniels torture, it is reassuring, that must contend with Travis also a complicated figure with the situation, which is idealized as not completely innocent. The second time, the soldiers stop at a library, the apparently infected is full. While it comes in to violent scenes, where some soldiers found the death, Travis waits outside in the car, until the soldiers finally return and decide horrified, cut back for their own safety to protection zone.
Oh yes, Exactly: Torture. The early staged by Ofelia uprising was only a trap for their military friend Andrew. Daniel was him, arrived in the house, overwhelm and now wants to find out, where his wife was executed introduced. In addition, the radio of the soldier always again the word „Cobalt“ mentioned. In order to solve the mystery, Daniel is ready to bloody methods, which it will not apply for the first time. no, He even has an extremely experienced. Puts that behind the unassuming barber more, one could imagine quite early. His drive was first evident in the last week. He knows because of the attacks in his native El Salvador, the depths of the human psyche all too well and will not wait, until he himself is a victim. But Soldier Andrew does not want to reveal his secrets, of course,. Although he tells, where the hospital is located, but not anymore. Daniel tortures him cruelly, cuts him inter alia with its razors on his arm, because he wants to find out at any cost, what is behind the code name „Cobalt“ hides.
As Ofelia learns, that her father, despite his promise to soldiers torturing, she is very angry and disappointed. When Travis returned from his tour with the soldiers, he finds the totally distraught Ofelia before and checked out immediately once the situation. Of course he's mad at Madison, that they allowed torture. For me, no surprise, that Madison does not really bother them, but understanding has. Since the distortion of the facts, the the killing of Osama bin Laden led, Torture is considered again as a legitimate method, to gain access to important information. That a mother wants to free their child from captivity, is understandable. That, however, Madison can so quickly adapt to their new environment, is amazing and makes for some tension within the family and in the relationship with her boyfriend. Also on the final addition, this conflict will probably may provide quite dramatic moments. What the troops but then learns from Andrew, is much worse: The code „Cobalt“ means the evacuation of Los Angeles. But only for the military. The remaining civilians to be killed and the very next morning at nine o'clock.
the mysterious „Hospital“ is, as we learn, finally,, housed in a sports hall and looks Ehrlich said almost a little pathetic. In a small space all the sick and injured are crammed. Dr. Exner and Liza supply here and there some sick, but Liza does not let go of the thought of Nick and Griselda. You can take a look into the basement of the hall, but they can not find Nick. But they discovered Griselda, apparently it is not very good. My foot had to be amputated and she suffered septic shock, at which she then dies. Dr. Exner explains Liza then, that all, the die, automatically into the Infected „Life“ to return, if you did not previously destroyed their brains. Liza sees it now as their duty, to do this step. It is Daniel and Ofelia guilty. But not all, as „sick“ were designated, came really into sports halls Hospital. Nick and neighboring Doug landed about somewhere in the basement, in a sort of basement or underground parking, which is probably is a kind sanctuary. When Nick to be discharged by the soldiers, saves him the charismatic Victor Strand, who spoke at the beginning of the episode with Doug. He saved Nick revealed and wants to gather a group of capable people around, to escape from the hospital.
It is gratifying, that the military apparently actually only want to help the people and does not perform experiments on them. That would have been too far a step. Director Kari Skogland shows the moment of the killing of Griselda from a distance and later a close-up of Griselda's forehead. A graceful farewell to a little-known figure us and this scene also says a lot about the approach and future of the series. While „The Walking Dead“ does not miss any opportunity, to seek a gore-stick moment after the next, is the spin-off far more complex and nuanced. Likewise, the camera does not remain long on the headshot of Kimberley. the Carnage in the library is also not to be seen, but only to hear. The camera remains at Travis. In Fear is not about the Zombies, but about the people and their response to this new world. So here Liza also experiences, that all people become zombies - even if they have not been bitten. Alicia and Chris, which actually are not so good, seem to come closer to each other by their predicament. They go together in a house of a well-heeled family in the neighborhood and have times really whoop it up. You get drunk, take the stuff of other people, dress up and then beat everything to bits. After the two were finally able to vent their frustration and anger at her family and the situation, Are you all seemingly better. But not for long, because they notice, that the soldiers no longer patrol, but pack your stuff and get ready for departure!
So the risk is less from the infected, but rather by the military! What will the families now? Will they Nick and Liza will find time? And how will Ofelia and Daniel respond, If you or know of Griselda's death. that Liza their wife and mother eventually shot? Is the stadium full of zombies within the security zone? Where exactly was actually the library? The military has hundreds of thousands of people were killed within the omitted week? Millions of people just like Los Angeles Leave? If so, where is chaos? Unless, where is everyone? Why everything is so empty? Some, the we have seen last week, hide in their homes. But that does not explain even the absence of a large part of the population. This unadorned row without visual highlights or highlights lays the foundation for a rich zombie, albeit predictable finale, Since I assume, Daniel opens the gates of the stadium and will benefit from the chaos. However, the season seems right now to end, where it gets interesting. Probably all the figures are likely to survive the chaos and now beginning to witness the downfall of last rule in Los Angeles. Probably the season even ends with the bombing of the city, similar to the often forgotten kick off the second season of the original series. There bombed the military Atlanta with napalm. Maybe that's the solution to all problems for Los Angeles, we are there next week in the final sixth episode („The Good Man“) the first season of „Fear the Walking Dead“ learn.
