Fear the Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 5: Cobalt

5 second plot: Apparently the soldiers are up to something and tough guy Daniel is going to go get medieval on someone’s ass if he doesn’t get answers quickly. Nick is in the detention center and he’s lucky some stranger decided to look out for him. Liza is in the central hospital helping out. Travis convinces the soldiers to take him there but they get overrun by walkers. And Alicia and Chris are having a little bit of fun.

5 second review: This Daniel character is no tough guy. I didn’t believe it for one minute. Which is a big problem because the entire episode relies on me believing it. There was no need for the ridiculous torture. There seem to be a whole lot of zombies in the vicinity of the town but we’re still not seeing any of them (well, just one). 

IMDb score: 8,4/10
Our score: 6/10
