Fear the Walking Dead season 7 episode 1 will follow the explosive finale of the previous season. We saw Teddy finally bringing his vision of “The End” to life in the season 6 finale. As he detonated the nuclear warheads all across Texas, the post-apocalyptic landscape got riddled with fallout. Amidst a radioactive wasteland and the walkers, there remain the survivors — one of the last bastions of humanity. Season 7 will follow the survivors traverse this even more dangerous land of death and desolation. While navigating the wasteland, the survivors will also be finding out their mettle. How will they survive this new madness? What will the survivors make of “The Beginning” and what this will entail?
With fledgling hope and scarce hints of humanity, the new landscape is more brutal than ever. In such a barren setting, some survivors succumbing to hopelessness or perils is inevitable. However, we’re also going to see some rise to the occasion while some will find new purposes. As the official synopsis suggests, the new beginning is going to be chaotic and intense. Episode 1 will introduce us to this new fallout-riddled Texas and the main characters trying to survive in it. There will be a special focus on Strand in the season opener, and we’ll learn how he’s surprisingly thriving in the desolate world. Let’s now delve into all that episode 1 of Fear the Walking Dead season 7 will entail. Spoilers ahead!
