'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6 Episode 5 Preview: A reunited Dwight and Sherry make their opening gambit
Dwight and Sherry are back together - but they can never be completely free until they've taken Virginia and the Pioneers out for good
It may have taken them a while to get here, but now that Dwight (Austin Amelio) and Sherry (Christine Evangelista) are finally reunited, they're wasting no time making their plans for the future. What that means in a post-apocalyptic world, however, is not talk of settling down and raising a family, but instead going to war against a tyrant who has the rest of their group in captivity. The people are done waiting, it would seem - it's time to take Virgina (Colby Minifie) down.
Dwight and Sherry have been separated ever since 'The Walking Dead', Season 7, when Sherry refused to live under Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) oppressive rule, and Dwight helped her escape. He's been trying to look for her ever since, following clues all the way from 'The Walking Dead' to cross over into 'Fear the Walking Dead'. Even though he gained some measure of peace from one final letter from her telling her not to follow him, he's still never quite given up hope.
That hope paid off in 'Fear the Walking Dead' Episode 3, where by the end of the episode he's managed to hear her voice on the radio by what appears to be sheer coincidence. Rushing outside to make sure it was real, he found Sherry there, waiting for him, and the two reunited in a moment that the fans have been waiting for several seasons across two TV shows, a moment that you can watch below:
Unfortunately for the two of them, they're still trapped in the same kind of situation that tore them apart in the first place, stuck under the thumb of an oppressive rule. Dwight still reports to Virginia and the Pioneers, but Sherry is working with a new group of people who are determined to take Virginia down at all costs, starting with her heavily-armed SWAT van. Taking it away from Viginia, either by destroying it, or by theft, would be the first major blow to Virginia's hold on power. It might only be the first move, but it's one step closer towards Dwight and Sherry finally getting their happily ever after.
The official synopsis for the 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."
This episode of 'Fear the Walking Dead' airs November 8 at 9 pm ET on AMC.
