Fear the Walking Dead season 5, episode 6, "The Little Prince", finally saw the main characters reunited as they dealt with the return of the radioactive zombies, another complication in Dwight's search for Sherry, and the children who are determined to survive on their own. The eventful episode also gave Morgan (Lennie James) a new weapon in the form of a mop handle to replace the stick that was lost in episode 2.
A second reactor at the power plant is on the verge of melting down, which raises the stakes for Morgan and the others, who are currently working toward fixing the plane. In one of the season's most insane moments yet, Strand (Colman Domingo) and Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) use a hot-air balloon shaped like a beer bottle to deliver parts for the plane but end up crash-landing near a group of radioactive zombies. Meanwhile, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) fails to convince the children to stay at the truck stop, and John (Garrett Dillahunt) discovers that Sherry is done leaving clues for Dwight (Austin Amelio).
Fear the Walking Dead season 5, episode 6, "The Little Prince", continues the trend of "The End of Everything" by answering a few of the lingering questions from earlier on in the season. Here's what still needs to be explained in the coming weeks.
4. How Will Strand & Charlie Survive?
Strand and Charlie found themselves in dire straits at the end of the episode when the hot-air balloon crashed. Zombies are slowly closing in on them, and what makes matters worse is that they're the radioactive kind, which means Strand and Charlie can't risk killing them. The two are stranded in a dangerous area, and it remains to be seen if they'll have to save themselves, or if it will be up to their friends to find them.
3. What Will Happen to the Children?
The fates of the children's parents have finally been explained, but what will ultimately happen to the kids has yet to be revealed. Despite Alicia's best attempts to convince them to stay, Annie and the other children seem determined to do things their own way. It's possible that Alicia won't be able to sway them, which would mean Morgan's group may have to move on without them.
2. What Happens If The Plane Isn't Fixed In Time?
There's certainly a sense of urgency in this episode, especially since Grace (Karen David) has warned them about the possibility of the second reactor melting down. Their generator was used to cool it down, but as Grace pointed out, this will only delay the meltdown. This gives them an even more important reason to fix the plane and escape the area as soon as possible, but what will happen if they don't make it out in time? The area could soon be poisoned by radiation and overrun with contaminated zombies, making the region virtually unlivable.
1. What Does Sherry's Letter Mean For Dwight?
John decided to lie to Dwight about Sherry's letter, so that Dwight would continue to have hope. In doing so, John has ensured that Dwight won't give up on his search for Sherry anytime soon. Of course, Sherry not leaving any more clues doesn't necessarily make finding her impossible, though it does severely hurt the chances of a reunion for the couple. It's hard to say how Dwight will take the news if and when he discovers the truth, and how he will proceed once he knows that Sherry no longer wants to be found.
