Fear the Walking Dead Season 6

The last time an episode of Fear The Walking Dead aired was on September 29… of last year. Yes, it’s really been more than a year since we’ve seen Morgan (Lennie James), Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Strand (Colman Domingo) and the rest of the gang. And you thought the wait for The Walking Dead’s Season 10 finale was long!

In light of that huge break between episodes, we’re summarizing a few things you’ll need to remember for Season 6 of Fear (and if you need a more thorough breakdown, check out our Season 5 finale recap).

Morgan had a very close call

It doesn’t feel like a spoiler to say Morgan’s alive, considering all of AMC’s promotional material has included him among the living. Sure, he’s alive, but he’s not necessarily well. The villainous Ginny (Colby Minifie) shot him in the chest after dividing his people among her forces (they were left with no choice but to join her in the finale), and from the looks of it, he’s still suffering from that wound.

The group is separated

At the end of the Season 5 finale, Ginny split Morgan’s people up into separate groups to better serve her communities. As such, Strand and Alicia are together (yay!), John (Garret Dillahunt) and June (Jenna Elfman) are separated, as are Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) and Daniel (Ruben Blades), and Al (Maggie Grace) and her camera.

Morgan and Grace have a thing

In one of the more surprising developments from Season 5, Morgan developed feelings for Grace (Karen David), a former nuclear reactor worker with a heart of gold and limited time remaining in the world, since she’d been exposed to a lethal dose of radiation. Or so she thought…

Grace is pregnant

Surprise! Grace isn’t slowly dying — she’s going to have a baby. Because apparently the symptoms of radiation poisoning and pregnancy are remarkably similar, and June, who is a nurse, never thought to consider alternatives. Oh, and Grace is still pregnant despite working with radioactive materials semi-constantly since the end of the world. Sometimes, you just gotta suspend disbelief.

Dwight is on this show now, and he’s looking for his wife

Dwight (Austin Amelio) crossed over from The Walking Dead last season, and he’s still trying to find Sherry (Christine Evangelista) despite the fact that her last note to him said he should live his life for himself and stop trying to find her. If Fear TWD’s Instagram page (which featured an image of the lovebirds reunited) is anything to go by, they do get back together this season.

Alicia was exposed to a high dose of radiation

Here’s hoping this doesn’t matter this season, but just in case it does, it’s worth recalling that Alicia got a good amount of radioactive walker blood in her mouth last season. No one really knows what that means or how it’ll affect her life expectancy going forward, but Season 5 mostly just shrugged it off after Grace reassured her that she wasn’t in immediate danger.

Al has a connection to CRM, kind of

In that she has a thing with one of the CRM soldiers, Isabelle (Sydney Lemmon). The two bonded (and kissed!) on a mission last season in which Al helped Isabelle get fuel for her helicopter. However, they went their separate ways, with Al promising not to dig deeper into CRM or what they do. Given that she’s a journalist, it seems pretty impossible to believe she wouldn’t be looking for the larger story there.

Various miscellaneous tidbits

These didn’t merit their own slide, but they might be important in the future. Daniel has an orange tabby cat named Skidmark, who is wonderful (and they were separated in the finale, which is not wonderful). June and John got married in the finale, which would be worrying on the main show, but probably doesn’t mean anything bad on this one. The group adopted a gaggle of kids who were tying up walkers using the dead’s intestines. Wes (Colby Hollman) was one of the new characters last season; he’s an artist and a potential love interest for Alicia.
