Though not a “cliffhanger” we were left in quite a lurch on Fear the Walking Dead 312. That means we have lots of questions for “This Land Is Your Land.”

Thankfully Fear the Walking Dead wasn’t a season finale because we won’t have to wait very long to find out what happens now that everyone is locked in the underground storage pantry while the Infected ravage the Ranch.

That said, there are a lot of things we want to know heading into the October 1 episode of Fear the Walking Dead, “This Land Is Your Land.”

Can Alicia broker peace?

Alicia, Crazy Dog, Ofelia, and the rest of the Black Hat and Broke Jaw community are now locked in the storage pantry. If this isn’t an opportunity for a leader to emerge, I don’t know what is.

But can she rise to the challenge and help everyone survive this ordeal? Alicia is calm under pressure and she has grown a lot, so it’s easy to imagine that she will be able to find a way to get people to work together.

What will Troy do now that Jake is dead?

Troy has always been a loose cannon. Early on he looked to Madison for direction, but there’s a good chance that he might be too unhinged to come back from losing his brother and (possibly) the Ranch.

However, losing Jake might be the impetus Troy needed to change things around. Like as not, he’s a valuable resource to the community because no one knows the region the way he does. He might be a loose cannon, but he’s also an asset. If he can be contained, he might be useful.

Will the Infected invasion unify the community?

Just as the search for well water seemed to bring the Broke Jaw community together with the Black Hat commuity, it’s possible that this attack will unify the groups once and for all. This fight is no longer about sides, it’s about survival. If they don’t work together then there will be no Ranch to return to once the Infected are gone.

Perhaps this invasion is what will bring everyone together. (At least for now….)

Where are Madison and Walker?

How long does it take to drive the truck back to the Ranch? Did Madison and Walker (and Strand) get lost? Come on now, guys. Drive faster. Sheesh.

Is it time to cut bait at the Ranch?

We’ve been talking so far about saving the Ranch. But with water scarce and devastation across the Ranch as it is trampled by Infected, could it be time to pick up and move to one of the other prepper communities that Jake was talking about?

Maybe this is just a matter of getting out and moving on. Surely a few people will want to stay behind if this is the case, but the lack of water might give people pause when it comes to building a permanent home at Broke Jaw Ranch instead of packing up and finding a place closer to the dam.

As you can see, there are lots of questions ahead of Fear the Walking Dead “This Land Is Your Land.” Tune in October 1 to see if we get any answers!
