Scary scene for a Sunday: Fear The Walking dead episode five that aired on Sunday saw a major fight that left some pretty gruesome causalities
The episode titled Till Death started with Dwight and Sherry trying to prevent men from robbing their food.
Dwight was upset that he shot one of the attempted thieves. He said he didn’t want to kill anyone today.
Sherry said not to worry that the ‘kill was clean.’ Dwight said he didn’t know what he would do without her. ‘Let’s hope neither one of us ever has to find out again,’ Sherry said.
Dwight and Sherry then returned to their bunker to share with the others the fruit that they found. Briga (Ella McCain) told them she spent all day listening to transmissions but she didn’t hear anyone talk about Padre.

Not a pretty picture: The walking dead were ready to fight as they amassed in large numbers
After their daughter Briga left the table, Kevin Larson (Aaron Spivey-Sorrells) and his wife Kim (Julia Barnett) told Dwight and Sherry that they really couldn’t wait around anymore. They were almost out of food and the place where they were staying was falling apart. Kim said they didn’t know if Padre was real or ‘it’s just some rumors on the radio.’
Sherry said ‘it’s out there.’ Dwight told them it was only a matter of time before they found it. He told them to trust them. Kevin told them that they could wait a bit longer.
The next day when Dwight and Sherry went out foraging there was a man who said he was stabbed. When they got closer to assist it turned out to be a ploy to capture them. The men turned their guns on Dwight and Sherry.

Ethical? Dwight and Sherry become ethical outlaws known as the Dark Horses; when Strand recruits them for a search and rescue mission, it forces them to question their code and their future
Howard (Omid Abtahi) then took off his mask so that could see it was him.
Howard said he knew that they called themselves the Dark Horses. He had his men take their guns and then told them to lose the masks because the radiation readings were clear where they were.
‘Look if we wanted you dead, it would have been done already,’ Howard said. ‘Your reputation is the reason I was asked to find you.’
Sherry said ‘asked by who’ before a hood was put over her head.
Drink up: Mickey sat down with Dwight and Sherry over beers. Mickey told them that the only reason that Strand wants her back is because she knows how to escape from the Tower. She said he doesn’t want other people to find out how she did it. Mickey said she made a suit out of phone books so the zombies couldn’t bite her
Tense times: Dwight kept saying that he thought she looked familiar then he realized she used to be this well known tag team wrestler with her husband. ‘I was there when you won the belt in Atlanta,’ he said
Howard brought Dwight and Sherry to the Tower to meet with Victor Strand (Coleman Domingo) who was practicing his golf swing off the top of the building. Victor laughed when he learned that they were the outlaws known as the ‘Dark Horses.
Dwight asked him what this place was. Sherry said they would have come if they just asked. Victor told them he had 200 people that lived here but that the building could support a 1,000. Victor told him he had a proposal. He said some of the people he had taken in hailed the Dark Horses as new ethical modern outlaws.
Dwight and Sherry wanted to know who was in here and he said June and John Dorie. He mentioned Morgan and Grace’s name but said only that he crossed paths with them. Victor said he is very particular over who he lets in.
He said he wanted to talk to them about a person named Mickey (Aisha Tyler). Dwight said if he didn’t open the door to Grace, Sarah and Morgan that he could take his proposal and ‘shove it up his a**’
Victor told them that Mickey was obsessed with finding her husband and a place that doesn’t exist because of a transmission. Sherry asked him how he knew it didn’t exist and he said because he had looked at every area 50 miles in every direction.
Victor said he knew where Mickey was holed up and wanted them to bring her back safely and if they did that he would grant them residence in his sanctuary.
‘Please I beg you,’ said Victor.
Obsessed: Victor told them that Mickey was obsessed with finding her husband and a place that doesn’t exist because of a transmission. Sherry asked him how he knew it didn’t exist and he said because he had looked at every area 50 miles in every direction
Ouch: Victor said he knew where Mickey was holed up and wanted them to bring her back safely and if they did that he would grant them residence in his sanctuary
Sherry told him that they had to pass because they had a code of honor. Victor told them to sleep on it and if they changed their mind that they knew where to find him.
Howard took Dwight and Sherry back outside and gave them a horse. Dwight suggested to Sherry that maybe they could strike up a deal with Victor.
Sherry said it sounded like Mickey was also looking for Padre so that if they found her there they could all go there together. Dwight and Sherry approached her house but Mickey fired at them and said ‘tell Strand I’m not coming back.’
Dwight entered Mickey’s house and said he just wanted to talk. Dwight put down his guy, but then Mickey grabbed and twisted his arm. He told her they weren’t here to help Strand. Mickey then asked him why he was here.
Who is Padre? Sherry said it sounded like Mickey was also looking for Padre so that if they found her there they could all go there together
Tense times: ‘To help you find your husband,’ said Sherry pointing her gun at her. ‘So how about you let go of mine’
‘To help you find your husband,’ said Sherry pointing her gun at her. ‘So how about you let go of mine.’
After that Mickey sat down with Dwight and Sherry over beers. Mickey told them that the only reason that Strand wants her back is because she knows how to escape from the Tower. She said he doesn’t want other people to find out how she did it. Mickey said she made a suit out of phone books so the zombies couldn’t bite her.
Dwight kept saying that he thought she looked familiar then he realized she used to be this well known tag team wrestler with her husband.
‘I was there when you won the belt in Atlanta,’ he said.

She told him that people stop recognizing her. He asked her what happened. Mickey said they stopped touring and opened up a training gym in Texas City, which was where her husband promised her they would meet up. She told them the bomb went off and that Strand took her in and she has just been trying to get back to the gym ever since.
Sherry said she wanted to help her find her husband. Sherry told her that Dwight and her found each other. Dwight told her they could all work together. He told her that they wanted to go to Padre.
They rode off together dressed in their makeshift radiation suits. Mickey told them that their signature wrestling finisher back in the day was ‘Till Death Do Us Part.’ She said it was a two man maneuver and she couldn’t do it without Cliff, her husband.
Dwight and Sherry returned to their bunker and saw that it was burnt and that Kevin and Kim were dead and that Briga was already a zombie. After they buried them, Mickey told them she was so sorry.
‘Play with fire and you will get burned,’said Dwight.
Sherry told him that they did everything the right way and stuck to the code and helped people. Dwight said maybe that’s not enough.
Dwight told her that odds were that her husband was dead and that Strands tower was the best place for her and for them. She called them ‘chicken sh**s.’
‘He will lock me up and throw away the key,’ Mickey told them. ‘No way. I’m not going back there.’

She told him that she was going to find Cliff and that they were going to find Padre. Sherry said they had a code for the reason and that she was going to help Mickey. She left Dwight and told him she would meet him later at the old bar.
Sherry and Mickey rode off together. They found Mickey’s gym but it was surrounded by dead people.
Dwight wandered through the woods and found his horse. A man pulled a gun on him and told him the horse was his now. Dwight told him that he killed some good people in the bunker. The man reminded Dwight it was payback for killing his friend. Dwight whistled to his horse and it kicked the man down.
A group of polaroid pictures of the dead fell to the ground with him.
‘What the hell are those,’ Dwight asked while pointing a gun to his head. He realized that Strand put him up to this. The man said that Strand promised him a place in the settlement if he killed these people. Dwight let the dead rip apart the man that couldn’t get off the floor.
Sherry had an idea to get Mickey inside. Mickey put on her suit made of phone books and Sherry covered her in blood to keep the scent off her. Mickey walked through the zombies but then one stabbed her. Sherry and Mickey fought their way inside.
Once inside they blocked the doors so zombies couldn’t get inside. Then she saw her husband but he had turned into a zombie. Mickey broke down crying. Sherry and Mickey climbed into the boxing ring and were surrounded by zombies.
Taking a stop on the road: There seem to be some issues after the battle
Mickey told her to call Strand but just then Dwight showed up and told her not to do that. He said that Strand killed the Larsons.
‘I’d rather die fighting with you than live hiding with him,’ said Dwight.
Sherry told them that she was out of bullets. Dwight tossed them both guns and they started shooting and killing all the zombies in the room. Mickey in the ring used her old wrestling moves to kill them. She also bashed their heads on the poles of the boxing ring.
One last zombie remained and Mickey climbed on top of the ropes and did her ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ finishing move by jumping down and stabbing a zombie.
Dwight told her husband was outside and that he cleaned him up so she could say her final goodbye. He also handed her a note that he found in his pocket.
Mickey read the note from her dead husband which said ‘Mickey, if you are reading this it means didn’t make it. I looked everywhere for a place where I hoped we could finally tie the knot. There are some maps on the desk that will help you know where not to look. Don’t give up, baby. Keep going. Find it. Don’t stay sad too long. Find someone else who will stand in your corner like I did. I love you always. Till Death Do us Part. Cliff.’
Ending this person’s life: There is a fight scene with one of the walking dead
Mickey told them she had to find Padre for him. Dwight said we will. ‘Like he said, find someone else that can stand in your corner, you got us right here.’
Sherry then apologized to Dwight for ditching her. Dwight said he apologized for being a ‘d**k.’ He told her had been thinking about something for a very long time and that he wanted them to have a family. She told him that she wanted it too and that they didn’t have to wait until everything was perfect and told him that she loved him.
Then a call came over the walkie-talkie for the dark horses. Mickey saddled up with them and three rode off on horseback.
Mickey asked how this worked. Sherry told her ‘we go, we see what’s what, we fire who the a**hole is.’
Dwight said ‘give them hell’ and Mickey said ‘I can do that.’
Then got to a field and there was a strange masked man. Dwight said he wasn’t the first person to try to ambush them. The man said it wasn’t an ambush but it was an invitation to work together. He told him that they also wanted to find Padre and you are going to help us.
