Strand tried hard to convince Daniel Salazar that he’d changed on Fear the Walking Dead but now that he’s trying to steal Salazar’s plane chances are Daniel and Strand are going to have conflict.

Strand, Strand, Strand. Will he ever change? After trying to impress Daniel Salazar with a moment of sincerity on Fear The Walking Dead and trying to convince Salazar that he’s now committed to helping people Strand is going to try and steal the plane that Daniel declined to give him. That is not going to do a lot to convince Daniel that Strand has changed.

Strand wants the plane to try and rescue his friends, but it’s unlikely that Daniel Salazar will agree with Strand that the end justifies the means. Daniel knows that the others are in trouble and he still said no when Victor asked for the plane. His reasoning was that no matter what Strand does he will end up making things worse for the group that is waiting for a rescue. And he may be right.

But Strand isn’t taking no for answer. In typical Strand style if one approach doesn’t work he’s going to work another approach, and then another if necessary, in order to get the result that he wants. In this case, he wants that plane and he’s not going to let something like a bad relationship with the man who owns the plane stop him.

If Strand uses his manipulative powers and con man skills to benefit others is he still wrong? Or does the end justify the means so that stealing the plane to help others is morally ok? Our panel debates the questionable morality of Strand stealing Daniel’s plane and the impact it could have on their tenuous relationship:

Victor Strand, Plane Thief?

It looks Strand isn’t going to take no for an answer when it comes to getting the plane. Is he justified in stealing the plane from Daniel? Do you think he will be able to steal the plane?

Sonya says:

I think he can steal it, especially with Charlie helping, but I’m not sure he’s morally justified in stealing it. But Daniel Salazar is not stupid, he’s not going to give Strand the chance to steal the plane easily. Victor’s going to have to work for that one if he wants it. I think he’d be better off trying to reason with Daniel to get it rather than steal it. Their relationship is already hanging by a thread and I don’t think Daniel would hesitate to kill Victor if he catches him trying to steal the plane.

Sara says:

I understand Strand’s need for the plane but stealing it from Daniel is the completely wrong way of starting off on a new foot with him. Strand needs to be more mature and reason with Daniel logically. Anyway, Daniel Salazar is not to be messed with

Jeffrey says:

I don’t know who’s side I am on in the Daniel and Strand argument. I totally see both sides and don’t at all blame Daniel for not giving Strand the plane, especially given all of Strand’s instances of selfishness and blatant manipulation. That being said, Strand really seems to be dead set on helping his people and I can support him doing what it takes to get them back. I don’t see him being successful though…because this is Daniel we are talking about.

Ethan says:

I think Strand will attempt to steal it, unfortunately. However, I do believe that Daniel will give in and go with him.
