A new enemy emerged on the “Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame” episode of Fear the Walking Dead. Troy, Madison, and a small group of armed men went to visit the chopper crash site to see why the team guarding it hadn’t checked in. But when they got to the crash site, there was nothing there but bullet casings.
The team visited an outpost to see whether the men had retreated. They found a pile of burned corpses and the outpost leader, Phil. Phil had been tied to chair and the back of his skull had been removed so that crows could eat his brains while he was still alive. Surprisingly, when Troy and Madison found him, he was reciting Hughes Mearns’ poem, “Antigonish.”
After Madison put Phil out of his misery, the group found itself surrounded by gun-toting Native Americans. The group was led by an old acquaintance of Troy’s named Walker. Walker and his people had killed Phil’s men. He told Troy to take back a message: “Tell your people it’s time for justice. The land you’ve lived on needs to be returned. Abandon the ranch.”
Walker made the Troy, Madison, and the gang walk back to camp barefoot. On the way, Madison and Troy had a little power struggle that ended with Troy almost slicing her neck open while she slept.
Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
