MY THOUGHTS: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 4 - "Blood in the Streets"
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 4 Synopsis:
A family in distress boards the Abigail, Strand branches off and his past begins to emerge. Nick searches for an associate of Strand's.
This episode delved into Victor Strand's life. We got a glimpse of who he was before this zombie apocalypse started. Apparently, Strand sent Nick out on an errand...no wonder why Nick went out for an evening swim...haha! Nick definitely knows how to survive...he did, after all, live on the streets for a time to support his addiction. But now, it seems that Nick has turned around and took on a major role in helping the group. He is one smart cookie. He did figure out how to camouflage himself from the dead...and use that knowledge to his advantage.
Welll, no wonder Strand is so determined to get to Mexico. Plus, we find out now that Strand had a very good reason for his strong distrust of people, especially now. So...that's why the yacht is named "Abigail"! And Strand's life is revealed...well, a bit of it anyways. With all these flashbacks, we got a better idea of who he is....sort of.
The group come across some people in "distress" and allows them to board the yacht. But, they are not who they seemed to be. However, Alicia recognizes one of the voices. Well, Alicia is learning that you can't believe anything and anyone. Alicia realizes that she did this...She led those people to them. Now, their safety and survival has been compromised. Strand then escapes the captors on the raft; however, they see him and shoot at him. The raft takes a hit, but was Strand hit? They assume that he's dead and bring their attention back to their captives.
Nick finds what, or rather who, Strand sent him to find... Luis, an old associate of Strand. Nick learns a bit more about Strand through Luis. He explains to Nick that he has secured passage to Mexico for only two people. However, passage for two is not in the plans. Strand must have known this. He must have worked something out...right!?! Who has he been speaking to on the satellite phone?
Nick and Luis makes their way to the Abigail. But then, Nick notices other people on boat. Good thing Luis is a good shot. However, they may have taken care of those left behind, but Connor and his associates take Travis and Alicia... Why? We don't know...yet. This Connor person has some kind of purpose for them.
They take back the boat, then Madison goes after Strand since Luis said that no one is going to Mexico without Strand.
Until the next episode!
