Fear the Walking Dead-- "...I Lose Myself" - Season four finale Morgan: Too much of a Savior complex. No amount of empathy would make Martha worth saving. His promising to meet the others at Alexandria was a good tease, but 20 minutes in, the idea of a series merger faded quickly. Martha serving as Morgan's "inner voice" was pointless, but then again, Gimple and the rest of the showrunners cannot leave Morgan's "Clear" period behind. They are on that one-note characterization as they don't know what to do with Morgan anymore--or, they believe the "will he / won't he" will bait audiences into sticking around. Not buying Martha spiking the water bottles with anti-freeze, as its not tasteless, and someone should have detected something about it early on. Moreover, there was no way for her to spike all of the bottles still in the shipping shrink wrap. One taste should have tipped them off, and the loose bottles tossed. Bad Plotting for Convenient Dilemmas. . Althea: Oh, come on--the camera battery should have drained by now, since there's no hint that the news van was recently abandoned. Not shooting Martha? She knew the woman was crazy and a killer, so why waste time questioning her? Its times like this where the series needs a writer willing to go to the Shane response instead of forcing more Bad Plotting for Convenient Dilemmas. Season wrap up: The new writers and producers thought cleaning house in exchange for fan favorite Morgan was the answer. Wrongheaded, as they killed off Kim Dickens' Madison when she became a likeable character, and with her death, the one anchor of the series was lost, and her absence is felt--and not for the right, in-series reasons. With actor Frank Dillane (Nick), it did not matter, as he had been publically groaning about wanting to leave FTWD since last season, so Nick's death was expected, and felt like the actor getting his way out, rather than a believable part of the plot. Alicia should have been written to be a leader in the making since season two, but it was always a case of her stepping up--then pulling back for no apparent reason. Some fans thought that was due to her mother being the leader, but I'm not sure I buy that. The group staying at the old denim factory and looking for others....I don't know where that's going, but I'm hoping its not a version of TWD's coming "trouble from within" where new groups never fall in line and/or seek to topple the existing leadership.
