Over the course of six seasons and one near-total reboot, Fear the Walking Dead has been about a lot of things. But right now, it’s about surviving a new kind of world-shaping catastrophe; one that nearly drove longtime series mainstay Morgan Jones (Lennie James) and his maybe-new-girlfriend Grace Mukherjee (Karen David) to almost commit suicide in the Season 6 finale. The threat of imminent nuclear annihilation has a funny tendency to shove all other priorities — even a zombie plague — into the background, and that’s pretty much the legacy that doomsday cult leader Theodore aka “Teddy” Maddox (John Glover) left behind while meeting his own overdue end in last season’s finale. Discovering and eventually launching a batch of missiles over the Lone Star state in a perverse Messianic death wish, Teddy inadvertently levels the entire playing field as Fear the Walking Dead prepares for its next chapter: Some key characters die, the fates of others are unknown, and the whole event vacuums out the power dynamics that were in play last season to clear the way for something new as Season 7 approaches.
That brings us to the other big plot driver that’s stealing center stage this season: The emerging high-stakes personal war between Morgan and Victor Strand (Colman Domingo). In the wake of a long struggle that’s put Morgan and Victor at odds over the choices they’ve made to benefit FTWD’s large cast of survivors, Victor finds himself viewing the nuclear blast alongside a new acquaintance — a mild-mannered History professor who hears Victor’s long confession (after some typical Victor-esque smooth-talking) about what he really wants out of life. For Victor, the blast feels like a new beginning: the perfect gateway to a new future where his survive-at-all-costs skills can finally come into their own. Morgan and Grace, meanwhile, swerve from deciding to kill themselves at the last minute when they hear the sounds of a crying baby over the loudspeaker — only to stumble outside and find a zombified Rachel (Brigitte Kali Canales) being tugged along, with the un-zombified baby in tow, by Fear the Walking Dead’s resident canine, Rufus. It’s a near-miraculous discovery that seems to give the pair a new lease on life, especially after riding out Teddy’s atomic apocalypse. –Syfy.com

The undead hereare known as “empties,” but World Beyond’s second and final season is chock-full of answers. Mostly about the Civic Republic Military (CRM), the shadowy cabal that’s already gotten its hands on The Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) as well as several Fear survivors, in addition to terrorizing many on Beyond (set 10 years after the start of the apocalypse).“You’re going to get a lot of insight about what you’ve heard passed around between Dead and Fear,” notes Aliyah Royale, who plays fierce teen Iris Bennett.Last season, Iris and her edgy adoptive sister Hope (Alexa Mansour) left the safe haven of Nebraska’s Campus Colony for New York to locate their scientist dad, Leo (Joe Holt), who was sent there to research the dead for CRM. Their perilous trek was joined by Colony security officers Felix Carlucci (Nico Tortorella) and Jennifer “Huck” Mallick (Annet Mahendru), brainy teen Elton Ortiz (Nicholas Cantu) and violent loner Silas Plaskett (Hal Cumpston).Over countless miles of dystopian terrain, it was revealed that Huck was sabotaging the journey. She framed Silas for trying to kill fellow survivor Percy (Ted Sutherland) and for actually killing Percy’s uncle Tony (Scott Adsit), and she sliced Felix’s ankle during a zombie attack—all part of a secret mission to deliver Hope solo to coldhearted CRM Lt. Col. Elizabeth Kublek (Julia Ormond), Huck’s mother. “The first couple of episodes are kind of a mind trip,” says Mansour. “There are some insane scenes between [Kublek] and Hope.” And it was only a matter of time before the group saw CRM’s true intentions. “That’s the thing about large organizations [like the CRM]—they talk about doing things for the common good, but it’s a terrible thing they’re actually doing,” Royale says.Still, “the asset” (aka Hope) winds up in CRM custody, along with Silas, who sacrificed himself to let Elton and Percy escape. The first season closed with a betrayed Iris and Felix encountering a band of survivors in the woods—led by Felix’s beau, Will (Jelani Alladin, promoted to series regular with Holt, Sutherland and Natalie Gold). “Now the fight is harder,” offers Tortorella of Season 2’s race to save Hope and expose the shady agency. “We realize pretty quickly that the CRM isn’t just one group of people—there are different sects underneath. But as the season progresses, we start to get pieces of the bigger puzzle.”“And who knows,” Mansour says teasingly. “You might even see Rick!”. –Tvinsider.com

Confined to the UK by Covid, Jeremy, Richard and James embark on a Lockdown Special to celebrate the great 70s American cars they saw in TV shows as kids, and to find out just why it was, given their Dads were all driving terrible Austin Allegros, that these amazing vehicles never took off in Britain. At the wheel of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville as driven by Elvis, a Lincoln Continental as driven by Jock Ewing of Dallas fame, and a Buick Riviera as piloted by Clint Eastwood, the three hosts take their iconic Detroit machines on a road trip across the stunning scenery of Scotland. And even though they are on home turf this lockdown journey turns out to be one of their funniest, most action packed and most charming adventures in years. Along the way they cause chaos on the ancient streets of Edinburgh, enjoy a hilarious, tyre torturing, high octane showdown with Abbie on the racetrack, before heading off to stage an epic Cold War shootout between the worst Soviet and American cars ever made. They also find themselves homeless in the Highlands after a series of housing-based crash bang wallop catastrophes, but still find time to use classic muscle cars to put an infamous Pizza Express journey to the test. After receiving a text from Mr Wilman, Richard, James and Jeremy modify their cars and head to the Outer Hebrides for one of their toughest challenges yet. At the far reaches of Scotland, they must build a homemade floating bridge across the Hebridean sea, capable of supporting them and their massive cars on a perilous journey to their final destination. -Grandtournation.com
