In the past, we’ve had a couple of occasions where MTV has accidentally posted their review in advance for an episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, but a new culprit has shown up for the companion series Fear The Walking Dead, The Guardian.

First, let me say this review is from someone who isn’t very high on Fear The Walking Dead, calling many of the main characters ‘stupid’ and showing a severe displeasure for the second episode in season one, “So Close, Yet So Far”.  Still, the author (named Brian Moylan) seems to have enjoyed episode 3 titled ‘The Dog’ much more than previous installments.

The article brushes over some of the major factors in the episode.  Here are some of the things of note:

  • Riots pit the dead against the living in what is the most “dangerous” scene of the episode
  • Electricity cuts in and out of all the houses and buildings
  • The Salazar barbershop catches fire, forcing Travis, Liza, Chris, and the Salazar family to leave
  • Griselda Salazar gets crushed by some scaffolding and is injured
  • Madison distracts her family from the chaos by playing Monopoly
  • Nick, Alicia, and Madison go to the neighbor’s house to get a shotgun.  While there, Nick steals pills
  • A walker neighbor wanders into the open house and tries to help himself to the family dog
  • Travis’ group meets back up with Madison’s family, where Liza and Madison buddy up
  • Daniel Salazar gets a wicked headshot on a zombie with a shotgun
  • Daniel teaches Chris to use a shotgun and says his family has been through worse than this (doubt it, Danny…)
  • Travis stops Madison from killing a neighbor walker
  • Madison stops to tell her neighbor Philip not to come home to his zombie wife Susan, who is trapped in a weird garden maze and supposedly looks like “the girl from The Ring all grown up”
  • Nick breaks into another house to find pills, but decides not to when a little girl “with a creepy doll” questions him
  • The government tells everyone to stay in their homes, lock the doors, and not let anyone in.
  • Chris gets punched in the face.  Not sure by who or why, but the author loved it.

Sounds like a pretty action packed hour for Fear The Walking Dead’s return following the Labor Day break.  To fit all that into an hour sounds like a huge task, but it sounds like it will be a much faster paced episode compared to the previous efforts in the series.

You can watch AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead’s third episode of season 1 titled ‘The Dog” on Sunday, September 13, 2015 .  Be sure to check your local listings for actual time and availability.
