Review: Fear The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 16 “Sleigh Ride”

While the ending is particularly compelling and riveting from a ‘who will die’ perspective, the episode as a whole falters due to the suddenness of the villain’s reign and his overall inability to be anything other than a random threat. It should take more than few episodes to flesh someone of such a magnitude out, and the episode suffers because of it. The characters are all in a reactionary mode (with the exception of Daniel), while Nick’s arc is never cemented in a way that is unique or provides exciting developments. It seems to simply reinforce his mindset and ends up predictable. There will certainly be interest in the coming season, but for now, despite the end, this all seems rather mute. 6.8/10
