The series premiere of Fear the Walking Dead
was all about the slow build. It lived on the creepy anticipation of the coming apocalypse. The second episode, "So Close, Yet So Far," says "to hell with all that" as society begins to fall apart in no time flat. Fear the Walking Dead
goes from zero to 60(-thousand) real quick. In the premiere, no one seemed aware of the mortal virus that was gripping the city. If they did find out, though, they were relatively unconcerned.
It turns out that in the world of Fear the Walking Dead, Los Angeles must be a hotbed of doomsday preppers. With the slightest hints of the coming doom, people begin to lose their minds real quick with looting and fleeing galore. The end result is that the second ever Fear the Walking Dead is a more exciting but also more illogical installment than the first.
