David Wiener was kind enough to email us a quote about the first episode of Fear he wrote: Episode 5 of Season 1 "Cobalt".
|“||I was fortunate to write episode 105 ("Cobalt"). It's a dynamic episode in which several of our story lines collide in a shocking and resonant way. An important new character is introduced and we discover another character is not who they appear to be. Throughout the first season, we've watched our characters approach the realization that the world as they know it is now gone, forever. Some arrived at this point faster than others, some have been in denial of the dark future ahead. At the conclusion of Cobalt, every one of our characters will be forced to face the reality of this apocalypse and to answer the critical question, 'what are you willing to do to survive.'||”|
