[SPOILERS for Fear the Walking Dead season 3 premiere]
Fear the Walking Dead kicks off season 3 by showing just how similar it is to The Walking Dead. The survivors are now in the throes of the apocalypse and as such their circumstances and situations are remarkably similar. This puts the spinoff in a unique position of having to differentiate it from its bigger sibling, and in order to do so, it has to shake things up with a few surprises.
The big surprise in the two-hour premiere comes at the start of the second hour, as the show does what this franchise is famous for and delivers an unexpected death. It's a death that will alter the composition of the show moving forward, which could make season 3 of Fear an interesting watch for that reason alone. Of course, the death likely won't come as too big a surprise for anyone who's been watching casting news lately as one billion-dollar franchise recently cast a member of Fear's cast in a major role.
Hollywood business aside, there's a lot to talk about in the first two hours of Fear the Walking Dead, and this is the place to do it. Remember, everyone in the comments section is participating in the discussion under the impression that others have seen the episodes. If you haven't best stay out until the season 3 premiere has come to an end.
Fear the Walking Dead continues next Sunday with 'TEOTWAWKI' @9pm on AMC.
