|“||On the second half of the second season of "Fear the Walking Dead," the Clark/Manawa, Salazar and Strand families fracture. The events that took place at the Abigail compound have set all of our heroes adrift. Now, they must forge their own paths to survive. Alicia struggles with Madison's refusal to let Nick go, while Travis tries to protect Chris from the apocalyptic darkness that threatens to consume him. Strand is lost in grief, and the power of Daniel's dark past leaves Ofelia disillusioned about their survival and ability to rebuild new lives.||”|
