Fear the Walking Dead Recap: Season 7 Episode 7 [Spoiler] Returns – TVLine

The bulk of Sundays eventful Fear the Walking Dead swirled around Strand, his head growing heavier and heavier as it wore the crown. But not even the shocker at the climax of his part of the hour could compete with the moment that viewers had been waiting and waiting for: Alicias return and Alycia Debnam-Careys first appearance since Season 6.

In Strands leg of The Portrait, though he turned away pretty much everyone who sought refuge at the tower even folks that Howard noted might have been of use he allowed in Morgan, if only to let June examine an ailing baby Mo (who it turned out had a double ear infection). Soon, not only were the Stalkers catapulting walkers at the highrise, they were setting off bombs and threatening to hurl walkers equipped with radioactive add-ons though the windows if Victor didnt grant them sanctuary. At the same time, Strand keeled over hed been poisoned! (How very Shakespearian, no?)

In the pickle of all pickles, Victor decided to let Morgan go to the armory to radio Grace for help from the outside. He even caved to Morgans demand to lower the tot down an elevator shaft to him, past several grasping walkers. (Now, I wouldnt trust Victor for anything, but I dunno if Id have let my baby go spelunking anywhere near a buncha zombies looking tasty and all!)

After beseeching Morgan to find Alicia, because I dont think shed want me to find her, Victor was sure that his frenemy would not return for him. Yet return, Morgan did with news that Grace and Sarah had done the dirty work outside and the tower had been saved from the Stalkers. Now, Strand had a chance to turn the place into a safe haven so welcoming, it would impress even Alicia.

Alas, as Morgan was giving Victor his pep talk, Strand noticed that his adversarys fingers had on them the same color blue as the poison hed upchucked Morgan had tried to off his nemesis when theyd shared a drink earlier! Take him to the roof! Victor ordered.

But of course, Strand didnt manage to send Morgan over the side. Instead, he let Grace strike a bargain over the intercom: If he let Morgan live, shed help identify and neutralize the walkers that were wearing radioactive material. Ultimately, Morgan was allowed to leave sans Mo, and Grace was allowed to enter (though the door for her was said not to be the revolving kind). I am gonna find my way back to you, Morgan promised.

No, you wont, Victor retorted. But Im gonna give them everything that you couldnt. Starting, presumably, with a megalomaniac to deal with!

As his end of the episode concluded, he called for lil Mo, adding creepily, Shes gotta get used to her new father sometime. [Shudder]

Meanwhile, back out in the wilds, as casually as you might a friend at the Starbucks around the corner, Morgan bumped into Dwight and Sherry, who were wandering about with what looked like Stalkers. Their leader wanted to speak with Morgan, too, the couple said.

Do I even need to tell you that their leader turned out to be Alicia? She assured Morgan that the Stalkers whod attacked the tower werent her people, at least not anymore. And as happy as she was to see her old pal, I brought you here cause I need your helpThese people are tired, hungry, getting desperate.

If she wanted Morgan to put in a good word with Strand, she was gonna be [bleep] outta luck. But their conversation didnt even get that far, since some walkers approached with radioactive material strapped to them, and before anyone could comprehend the words Dont shoot! theyd been shot, releasing toxic gas into the atmosphere. Everybody run now! cried Morgan. And that was that.

So, what did you think of Alicias comeback after so long? Worth the wait? And for that matter, Wendells less momentous reappearance? We hadnt seen him in even longer than wed seen Alicia! Hit the comments with your thoughts.
