Just two episodes in, Fear The Walking Dead did what a show attempting to build momentum should never do: take a week off. It's unclear how this will affect viewership not only for this episode but also the series going forward. But while it's becoming more and more clear with each episode that FTWD is never going to be that action and gore-packed show people were hoping for, it's beginning to show flashes of being something quite interesting in its own right.

As for the cast of characters, most still seem a bit bland. However, barber Daniel Salazar (veteran actor Ruben Blades) is beginning to emerge as one of the more interesting characters, despite not appearing until the second episode. While most of the characters seem a bit confused (and to the viewer, even a bit naive, which leads one to wonder if the characters in this world even know what zombies are), Daniel's stubbornness begins to come off a bit as toughness in this episode. Based on some dialogue and a few situations in this episode, he clearly made himself the character to watch, for a number of reasons.
