"It's just demoralizing": Fear the Walking Dead is the latest example of Hollywood ageism
"It's the same old story," Maureen Ryan says of Sunday's episode of the AMC series. "I'm tired," she adds. "Like a character on a zombie show, I'm exhausted from fighting the same battles over and over again." Ryan says Sunday's death "is infuriating for a lot of reasons," adding: "The decision to kill off one of TV's — and cable's — rare mature female leads is baffling. The simple truth is: Shows aimed at the mainstream, not to mention programs with a genre premise, rarely cast women over 40 in the most important role. Ignoring this context and history, just to give viewers another tiresome 'major death,' represents a massive lapse in judgment. The fact that this decision comes from The Walking Dead franchise, which has come under fire for its treatment of women and people of color in the past, is even more depressing."

Fear the Walking Dead bosses explain that surprising twist
Showrunner Andrew Chambliss says of Sunday's episode: "I would say the one thing we were very conscious of as we were telling these stories over two different timelines was that people would be asking questions about who's there, and who's not there. We wanted to write the stories and have them unfold in such ways that there are many twists and turns along the journey."

Fear the Walking Dead bosses on the rebooted Season 4: "This show constantly reinvents itself"
"We have multiple timelines over the course of the season," says Ian Goldberg, the new co-showrunner of The Walking Dead spinoff. "We're playing with the structure, depending on which story we're telling in the episode. What we find so exciting about telling stories across time is it allows for mystery and for finding characters in an emotional place and exploring how they came to be that way, and finding them in a very different emotional place in the flashback storyline — not only from a plot perspective of piecing it together, but also showing how people became who they are by charting them in the present and comparing it to where they've been in the past."
