Ruben Blades Expects Fear the Walking Dead to Explain Daniel’s Dam Aftermath at “Some Point”

Rubén Blades expects Fear the Walking Dead to ultimately recognize precisely what came about with Daniel Salazar following the destruction of the Gonzalez Dam that ended Season 3.

“Right now, I mean, it’s an interesting situation because after the dam scenario — which I’m sure will be explained at some point — he had to find a reason to live,” Blades mentioned right through Fear’s Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con when requested about this new mentality exhibited by way of the returned Daniel.

“His wife, Griselda, is gone, his daughter [Ofelia] is gone. And I think that, independent from Morgan, Salazar figured, ‘I’m alive for a reason, there must be a purpose for me. Because everyone around me has died except me.’ So I think that he made up his mind about being of use to others, and having the knowledge that he has, to put it at the service of others.”

Season Three ended with Nick (Frank Dillane) exploding the dam to save mom Madison (Kim Dickens) and sister Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) from Proctor John (Ray McKinnon) and his males. Season Four began with Morgan (Lennie James) transitioning from The Walking Dead over to Fear, then separated into “past” and “present” timelines separated Madison’s demise, which wouldn’t be published till 4’s midseason finale.

It was once realized in Season 4 the Clarks, along side Victor Strand (Colman Domingo), regrouped and later established the Dell Diamond baseball stadium neighborhood three hundred and sixty five days after narrowly surviving the explosion at the dam. An clarification at the back of the off-screen aftermath befell over beverages in episode 406, “Just in Case,” right through a quiet second between Madison and Strand.

The destiny of Daniel, who was once closing observed in the Season Three finale being swallowed by way of the blast, was once left unknown till he resurfaced in Fear’s ongoing 5th season. There Daniel was once published to have filmed an interview with Althea (Maggie Grace) and was once additionally now someplace in Texas, holed up in a well-stocked warehouse with puppy cat Skidmark.

Coincidentally, Daniel put himself on the identical trail of altruism and redemption that unites Morgan and his touring workforce of selfless goodwill ambassadors.


“It’s interesting, because it happened at the same time that Morgan was also thinking about helping other people and atoning for past sins,” Blades mentioned. “In Salazar’s case, I think he’s trying to provide a reason for him to live, and I think helping others is it. But that doesn’t mean, you know — he will help you, but if you cross him, he’ll kill you, I think. I mean, I don’t think that that’s ever gonna be gone.”

New episodes of Season five premiere Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
