This week’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead saw another death of a character first introduced in the episode. This same thing happened in the midseason premiere episode. Why introduce new characters only to kill them off immediately? It is something TWDU enjoys doing. This week’s new character was Ali, a young ranger who lives at Strand’s  tower.

AMC aired the tenth episode of season 7 of Fear TWD, “Mourning Cloak,” which saw the arrival of Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) to the Tower. She claims she wants to live as normal as possible, and the Tower offers that. Howard (Omid  Abtahi), Strand’s right-hand man, is suspicious of her motives.

She volunteers to go on a mission to retrieve parts for the elevators that have been out of commission since an explosion took them out. Howard sends Ali, a young man eager to prove his worth, along with her to find out if she has an ulterior motive for coming to the Tower. Howard knows she has been with Morgan (Lennie James), a man who has recently tried to kill Strand and suspects he has sent Charlie.

Fear the Walking Dead – Ali

Ashton Arbab is the actor who portrays Ali. Arbab is an actor and musician who began performing at the age of three. He is well known for his role as Dev Cerci on ABC’s General Hospital, a role he played for 70 episodes of that series.

He is also known for his roles in Salsera, PSY Wants to Kill Me, How I Met Your Mother, Insidious: Chapter 2, Lovesick, Mutt & Stuff, A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting, Seven Perfect Strangers and Amy from Amarillo.

Next, you can see him in Powder Pup and It Happens at Night, which he is currently filming.

Be sure to check out his music on Spotify, Apple Music, Sound Cloud and Youtube. He has recorded several songs,  “Blue Eyed Baby,” “Love Bug,” Spoil You,” and “Time Machine.”

Sadly, Arbab’s character was thrown off the roof of the Tower by Howard when he threw a fit. The whole incident with Charlie and Ali will most likely not sit well with Strand when he returns. It appears that Howard is beginning to show his true colors, and he will most likely end up being the villain of this season.

In this episode, Ashton Arbab did an amazing job as Ali; that was a tender showing of a coming-of-age experience in the apocalypse.
