WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead season 6 midseason finale. Read at your own risk.
Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 8 is not coming until 2021 on AMC. Fans need to wait for a little while as the post-apocalyptic drama has entered its midseason break. Yet, viewers can expect a lot of intense stories and action-packed scenes once the series returns.
The preview of Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 8 teased what lies ahead for some of the characters. The clip features a lot of chaos, with some of the group members in grave danger -- particularly Grace (Karen David). It looks like she became one of Virginia's (Colby Minifie) latest targets.
Grace is seemingly surrounded by a firing squad arranged by Virginia. It remains to be seen whether the character will die, though it's apparent that her life is on the line. It's easy for the Pioneer leader to kill her off, but she recognized that she could use her later on.
Virginia needs Grace alive, especially if she wants to orchestrate an exchange for her younger sister, Dakota (Zoe Colletti). She could use her as bait to drive Morgan (Lennie James) to make a swap, or she's threatening them to kill her because she's afraid that she won't be able to get her sister back.
Virginia is determined to reunite with Dakota, so she will do whatever is necessary to bring her back on her side. To do this, she'll try to keep Grace alive and use her to threaten the group. The Pioneer leader won't stop until she gets what she desires.
Beyond this, the preview of Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 8 also teased big stuff coming for Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey). Fans are excited to see how her story will progress, given that she's one of the most essential characters in the series from the start.
In fact, the midseason finale focused on her journey searching for Dakota. Strand (Colman Domingo) sent her and Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) on a rescue mission, where they came across a hunting lodge and encountered some walkers. Alicia investigated the site and met a guy named Ed.
Later on, it was revealed that Dakota was also in the lodge and spending time with Ed. Alicia told him that the girl she's spending time with is Virginia's younger sister. She radioed the Pioneer leader that she'd got Dakota and asked her and Charlie's freedom in exchange.
However, Ed heard their conversation and released his re-engineered walkers. The good thing is that Charlie showed up, and they were able to escape. The two met Strand and allowed them to leave. After a while, he came to Virginia and pledged his allegiance to her.
Yet, Virginia told him that she locked up Grace, and if he wants her to be free and safe, he must bring everyone back. This is something that will play out in Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 8. The Pioneer leader is determined to get everyone back and reunite with her younger sister, as well.
Fear the Walking Dead season 6 episode 8 has no official release date but it is slated to arrive in 2021.
