Victor Strand sacrificed an innocent man to save his friends on Sunday’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead and then banished his close ally Alicia Clark.
While clearing a Rangers factory full of zombies, Victor (Colman Domingo) stabbed a prisoner in the leg and tossed him to the undead, aiming to get his friends to safety.
That bold move caught the eye of Victor’s enemy Virginia (Colby Minifie), who elevated him from latrine duty to a leadership role in her organization, the Pioneers.
Tough choices: Victor Strand sacrificed an innocent man to save his friends on Sunday’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead and then banished his close ally Alicia Clark
Victor was so horrified by his own behavior, he immediately reassigned his friend Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) to another location, where she would be protected from his ways.
‘You make me remember the person that I am,’ he told her.
‘And for me to do all the things that I need to do now… I have to forget that person. And I can’t do it with you by my side.’
Victor and 솔레어카지노 Alicia had been secretly searching the sugar factory for an unknown weapon they heard Virginia wanted, something they hoped to trade for their freedom.
‘The thing I’m looking for ain’t in here,’ the Rangers’ head finally told him.
‘It’s you—a true leader. And from what you did here today, each and every one of you, you are the key.’

Later, it became clear that it was actually Morgan (Lennie James) she’d wanted to find.
At the end of the season six episode titled Welcome To The Club, Morgan met up with his old friend Daniel Salazar (Rubén Blades), who’d been pretending to suffer from memory loss while working in Virginia’s employ.
‘You know who I am, Daniel,’ Morgan said, strolling out of the dark.
‘And I could use your help.’

‘You look like you could use a haircut,’ Daniel said, checking to make sure that no one saw them.
‘Good to see you, Morgan. I thought it was you she was looking for.’
As the episode began, a team of prisoners made an attempt to clear the factory’s warehouse of zombies, as Rangers stood by.
‘You’re all here because you deserve to be in a grave,’ a Ranger named Jeb (Lee Stringer) said.
‘Think of this as your final chance to dig your way out. Just gotta shovel past a whole lot of corpses to do it.’
Zombies everywhere: As the episode began, a team of prisoners made an attempt to clear the factory’s warehouse of zombies
The group stood before a solid metal gate, behind which they could hear the scrabbling and moans of what sounded like hundreds of zombies.
‘I can’t do this,’ a prisoner named Sanjay (Satya Nikhil Polisetti) said, hesitating as the gate was raised.
As it went up, molasses flooded out in a sticky pool and zombies slithered out toward the light.
Suddenly the gate got stuck, and the man in charge of raising it was pulled under.
Under attack: The undead swarmed the warehouse
One by one, those charged with killing the zombies went up to stab them in the head and got yanked down into the dark, as Sanjay stood back.
Jeb tried to pull a woman free and fell under the gate himself, sliding on sticky goo until the gate lowered on him and he was torn apart.
The next day, Victor and Alicia were busy working outside Lawton, the chief settlement of the Pioneers.
Latrine duty: Alicia and Victor were on latrine duty together
They threw out the contents of residents’ latrines, burning the trash as they did so.
A Ranger named Marcus (Justin Smith) drove up in an MRAP, a military tactical vehicle, and urged the pair to move.
Victor argued with Marcus, who cocked his gun threateningly and advanced.

‘Stop!’ a girl named Dakota cried through the Lawton fence.
Victor and Alicia were led to Virginia’s office, where they ran into Daniel cutting her hair.
His head had a gash in it, and he spoke to his friends like he barely remembered them.
That’s enough: ‘Stop!’ a girl named Dakota cried through the Lawton fence as she broke up the confrontation
‘Memory’s a card catalog, but the cards are all mixed up,’ Virginia told them, explaining that Daniel had been injured when he went to protect his cat Skidmark from the Rangers.
She informed Victor and Alicia that they would be the next team to take a crack at the sugar factory and its zombies.
‘Victor, you already squandered one opportunity,’ Virginia warned.
‘Don’t waste this one.’

When she left the office, Victor tried to get Daniel to ‘drop the act,’ but the barber maintained he didn’t know who his old friends were.
In Spanish, Victor told him, ‘You told me to remember who I was in here.
You can’t even do the same.’
From his bag, Daniel withdrew a St. Christopher’s medal he’d found on a zombie, and gave it to Victor, saying it would help him ‘bear heavy burdens.’
Another opportunity: ‘Victor, you already squandered one opportunity,’ Virginia warned.
‘Don’t waste this one’
At the sugar factory, Victor and Alicia ran into Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) and Janis (Holly Curran), who had both tried to defy Ranger orders and been punished.
Victor schemed to overthrow the Rangers with a gang of prisoners and bust out of Lawton.
They ran into Sanjay, who told them the factory’s molasses tanks had been leaking, and bemoaned his inability to save fellow prisoners.

‘I heard you stood up to Marcus,’ he told Victor.
‘I wish I’d had the guts to do something like that.’
When the truck arrived with their spears, Alicia balked: It wasn’t enough to defeat the Rangers.
From the back of the truck, Dakota spoke up.
‘I know what she’ll do if you try to take out the Rangers,’ she said.
‘Virginia’s my sister.’
Inside knowledge: ‘I know what she’ll do if you try to take out the Rangers,’ Dakota said.
‘Virginia’s my sister’
She let Victor and Alicia know that they weren’t the first to try to overthrow the group, and that if they failed, Virginia would kill them, or the people they loved.
Dakota told the survivors she’d seen the tapes in which they promised to help people, and that Virginia was ‘obsessed’ with them.
She also knew that there was something inside the warehouse that was vitally important to her sister—so important that ‘she keeps throwing bodies at it.’
No clue: Charlie tried to remind Daniel of the song that he taught her
‘If you can get it and overpower the Rangers, then we can use it against her,’ Dakota suggested.
Victor asked Dakota why they should trust her, and she said, ‘I live with her.
I know everything that goes on in that house, like the deal you made with her.’
Victor admitted to Alicia that he’d given Virginia the MRAP to keep the two of them together.
‘What we need to do to survive this, I can’t do it on my own,’ he confessed.
‘Not without you. Not the way it should be done.’
Memory gone: Daniel insisted to Charlie and the others that he could not remember them
‘Daniel told me to remember who I was.
Being with you, it helps me do just that. And it’s not about right or wrong, it’s about being someone you can look in the eye when this is all over.’
Alicia talked Victor into forgoing his plan and 파라오카지노 just clearing the zombies.
She thought that if they went after the ‘weapon’ Virginia wanted, they could use it as a bargaining chip.

Inside the warehouse, the two of them created a funnel with a long cattle alley and placed it in front of the zombie gate, which made it easier to pick zombies off one at a time.
When Charlie got pulled into the alley by a zombie, Dakota sprang up and 메리트카지노 killed it—bringing her to the Rangers’ attention.
As they radioed Virginia, a holding pen containing zombies collapsed and the survivors had to stab them up close, using pallets as shields to do it.

The Rangers died as they tried to keep the prisoners inside.
‘Strand!’ Alicia yelled.
‘There’s too many! We need guns!’
Victor fled to a nearby RV and found Sanjay cowering inside. He pressed the vehicle’s horn to draw the zombies to no avail.

‘It won’t work,’ Sanjay said.
‘They’ll chose fresh meat every time.’
Victor dragged Sanjay outside and told him they should have just overthrown the Rangers.
‘Why didn’t you?’ Sanjay asked.
‘Good question,’ Victor replied, stabbing him in the leg.
He placed his hand over Sanjay’s mouth as he fought back.
‘You said you wish you had the guts to stand up to him,’ Victor intoned. ‘Today’s your day to be a hero.’
He pushed a screaming Sanjay toward the zombies, who immediately consumed him.
Secret weapon: Dakota told Alicia and Victor about a secret weapon in the warehouse
Victor watched silently as he was devoured, and Alicia and Janice took the Rangers’ guns and sprayed the zombies with bullets.
‘Sanjay,’ Alicia sighed, noticing his body.
‘I tried to stop him,’ Victor lied.
‘But this is what he wanted. He did it for us.’
The group looked for the weapon Dakota said Virginia was after, but couldn’t find anything.
Victor heard Virginia’s car approaching and angrily told the group, ‘It’s over.’
New job: Virginia punished Alicia and Victor after the confronted her men
Outside the factory, he faced Virginia and told her he was responsible for what happened, offering to take the punishment for the group.
‘Why would I do that, Victor?’ Virginia asked.
‘You did what no one else could. You cleared this place.’
She told Victor he was the leader she’d been looking for and handed him a key to the factory, telling him to use her soldiers any way he saw fit.
‘Just know when the time comes to call them up for the big show, y’all best be ready,’ she said.
That night, Daniel cut molasses out of Charlie’s hair and swore he didn’t remember anything.
Charlie played the Traveling Wilburys’ End of the Line, a song he taught her, but it didn’t help.
Alicia spoke with Victor about his new ‘key to the city,’ and he told her he had ‘reassigned her.’
‘Where?’ she asked, to which he responded, ‘Somewhere far away from me.’
As Alicia began to protest, Victor noted, ‘We almost died today.
Sanjay did die. It didn’t have to happen. It could have gone down differently. It should have. But I hesitated. I didn’t trust my instincts. I knew what needed to be done, but I couldn’t.’
Victor explained that he’d hidden parts of himself from Alicia because he didn’t want to drag her down with him.
‘I need to forget who I am,’ he shared.
‘But you don’t.’
He put the St. Christopher’s medal in her hand. ‘Whatever happens, don’t you ever forget,’ Victor said.
As he walked off, he passed Daniel getting in a wagon. In Spanish, he told him, ‘I felt sorry for you because you didn’t remember.
But now I envy you.’
From somewhere in the darkness, there came the sound of someone whistling End of the Line.
Daniel told the Rangers with him to retrieve his good scissors from inside, and moved forward in the dark.
‘Good to see you, Morgan,’ he said.
Fear the Walking Dead returns next week on AMC.
