AMC has revealed the preview for Fear the Walking Dead 514, “Today and Tomorrow.” Per its official synopsis:
A survivor sends Al and Morgan right into a harmful settlement the place Al chases a lead.
While Morgan (Lennie James) and Al (Maggie Grace) head into harmful territory, Grace (Karen David) groups with Daniel (Rubén Blades) and cat Skidmark.
This new survivor encountered by Morgan and Al seems to be on the run from Virginia (Colby Minifie) and her gang of cowboys, who freshly slaughtered Logan (Matt Frewer) and his crew at the oil quarry. This far-reaching group of “Settlers” have even greater ambitions — ambitions which have pressured Luciana (Danay García) to remain behind and make gas, the sole situation of a deal that spared John (Garret Dillahunt), June (Jenna Elfman), Dwight (Austin Amelio), Wendell (Daryl Mitchell) and Sarah (Mo Collins) from demise.
Virginia, or “Ginny,” considers her sizable pack of cowboys “like the pioneers”: as she advised the survivors throughout a tense standoff at the quarry, they experience round “settling everything, everywhere.”
As Logan put it, the Settlers “are gonna help. It’s just not gonna be one person at a time.” But the Settlers have been watching Morgan and firm, and Virginia says each side are on related missions.
“It’s no different than what you’re doing with your outposts, only bigger,” she advised the survivors. “And, if I may, better.” Virginia’s precise motives aren’t but clear, however the deal organized with Logan was meant to say gas wanted to increase the community the Settlers have already constructed.
Virginia’s unbothered angle in the direction of killing already clashes with the worldview exhibited by pacifistic survivor chief Morgan, whose aversion to violence may show problematic when coping with the trigger-ready Settlers.
“We’re now at a stage where people know how to survive in this new post-apocalyptic world. We know what is necessary in order to make it through a day and into another day,” James beforehand advised the AMC weblog. “We know how to avoid walkers and how to escape walkers. We even have some knowledge of how to walk among them. We have a certain set of skills. For Morgan, at least – and I think it does echo through the other members of this group – he needs some kind of justification for these survival skills that he’s acquired. They need to go to use. He even says it to Alicia. They both agree that they need to make up for the wrong they have done and for the lives they’ve taken and the mistakes they’ve made. I think this gives them a sense that their continued existence does more than just keep themselves alive.”
