(AMC)

Virginia (Colby Minifie) has been in power for too long, and everyone knows that it's a matter of when and how, not if, the people beneath her rule fight back against her. On the next episode of 'Fear the Walking Dead', the first opening move to take her down is about to be made - and Althea Szewczyk-Przygocki (Maggie Grace) is likely to be a key component to that vital victory.

One of Virginia's best assets right now is her armored van - the BAE Systems Caiman CMTV. The van was once Al's, and served as the primary method of transportation for the group before Virgina and her Pioneers stole the vehicle right out from under them. Now the vehicle is well stocked with Virginia's best weapons, and is all but impervious to the kinds of ambush attacks that an outsider group may be planning. Sherry's (Christine Evangelista) long-awaited return has brought with her a new group of people who want nothing more than to see Virginia taken down, and they're starting with a "hail-mary" pass at the van. Al knows better, however, given her intimate knowledge of the van's design, and she's able to stop the group from making a futile attack. In fact, the idea she has is a lot better than destroying the van to keep it out of Virginia's hands - she plans to steal it.

The synopisis for the episode reveals that there's an important power struggle ahead for the group, between Sherry's new people and Virginia's Pioneers. It's one that's going to receive help from an unexpected corner, as Morgan (Leslie Jones), finally joins the fight. Morgan has been separated from the group ever since the end of last season, and though he's made contact, he's largely been on his own. Everything, however, hinges on whatever plan Al has up her sleeve - and no matter how things start, the war to take down Virginia starts right here. The official synopsis for this episode reads, "Dwight and Sherry team up with a mysterious faction of people to take down Ginny; when Morgan unexpectedly offers to help, a power struggle ensues."
