The sixteen part mini-series is a spinoff of AMC’s very successful “The Walking Dead” which itself is currently in its sixth season. “Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462” is shown in small installments of about one minute in length which are parts of a single story and inserted during commercial breaks of “The Walking Dead.”
“Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462” is basically like a “Snakes on a Plane” scenario without any Samuel L. Jackson to save the day. Well, he’s busy saving the necks of the Avengers from behind that eye patch of his. The story of the mini-series deals with passengers on flight 462 who have to deal with zombies when one of the passengers seems to have been infected with the zombie virus.
The events in the last two episodes that were released – Episode 13 and 14, were nail biting, to say the least. Suzanne did the mistake of opening the bathroom door which led to her throat being ripped out by an undead Marcus, who then proceeds to attack Anthony.
Anthony is unable to shoot Marcus as he runs out of bullets. Charlie succeeds in grabbing the zombified Marcus off Anthony. Marcus then tries to kill Charlie, obviously, who kicks at Marcus’s face to stall him. Meanwhile, Jake manages to grab a crochet needle and gives it to Charlie who stabs Marcus in the head with it, killing him.
Due to the many shots fired by the Air Marshall, the glass window of the plane has been damaged and the cracks are widening, like that scene from Steven Spielberg’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” inside the Fleetwood RV Mobile Lab, only much less intense than that dinosaur film.
Deirdre is comforting a mortally wounded Suzanne and everyone’s eyes are moist. Suddenly, Charlie takes the crochet needle and stabs Suzanne in the head, to everyone’s shock. No matter how violent the scene looks, Suzanne needed to be put out of her misery before she turned into a Walker herself. While the scene is sad, it’s nowhere near as excruciatingly heart-wrenching as having to watch Will Smith strangle his loyal German shepherd Sam in “I am Legend.” Anyway, the window cracks open, serving as a cliffhanger for Episode 15.
To watch episode 14, the AMC mobile app available for Android, iOS, and Windows-powered devices may be downloaded. Others will have to wait till Sunday when it will premiere during a commercial break of Season 6 of “The Walking Dead” episode 14 entitled “Twice as Far.”
