MY THOUGHTS: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 3 - "Ouroboros"
About the Show:
AMC's Fear the Walking Dead returns at sea, aboard the Abigail. The group is unaware of the true breadth of the apocalypse; they assume there still a chance that some city, state, or nation might be unaffected, some place where infection has not hit. Abandoning land, Madison, Travis and Daniel gather their grieving families for ports unknown. But the respite of Strand's ocean-side home is short-lived. They will discover that the water may be no safer than land.

Season 1 recap
Episode 3 Synopsis:
Madison confronts Strand about his mysterious destination. Nick, Alicia, and others inspect wreckage from a plane crash.
Nice! This third episode connected that web series, Flight 462, into the series! I mean seriously, there had to be a connection somewhere since it is in the same The Walking Dead universe...haha! However, we did get a little bit of a tease to this connection in Season 1 when Nick saw a "plane" fly by. We then see where the plane crashed in this second season.
The episode opens with the survivors of the plane crash. It is apparent that the Abigail is sailing in the vicinity of it when one of the survivors get caught up in its filtration system causing Abigail to stop. They notice remnants from the crash on shore and decide to scavenge for supplies. While the kids rummage through the wreckage, Madison questions Strand about this mysterious location.
While Travis works on fixing the boat, Madison and Strand discusses their trust issues. Well, things do have to change when they are all in the "same boat"...per se...haha! Pun intended. Even the children is "stepping up" in this new situation they are in. Nice surprise to see Nick has grown since the first season. These young adults had to grow up fast considering the circumstances. Then there is Salazar having his reason for accompanying the them to shore. He seems to have opened up a bit to Madison, but he does have some serious trust issues...hmmm. What's his back story... Although Ofelia keeps to herself, Nick befriends her.
Chris wanders off and finds a part of the plane as he searches for supplies. What he finds will affect him in more ways than one. Well, he ends up somewhat in the same situation his father was in with Liza when he finds a dying survivor. It's completely different "killing" a dead person. He had to kill a dying man. Now, that will mess with you in the head.
Now, where are all the bodies of all those passengers from the plane?!? We soon find out when a survivor comes out running towards them. Plus, Nick runs into a couple himself. This is definitely not a "good" situation. Two survivors go back with them to the Abigail to Strand's dismay. He is not happy about it. Travis and Madison comes to a compromise...again, to Strand's dismay. Who is he!?! It is apparent that there's more to him than he's letting on. It is also obvious that he puts up with the group...for a reason. Strand does what Strand does well... He let go of the two plane crash survivors.
This journey continues to be mysterious, yet this will not be the last encounter they will come across on the water.
Until the next episode!
