'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6 Episode 5: Sherry introduces new players in the war against Virginia
Sherry has teamed up with a new group of masked outcasts who want nothing more than to end Virginia's life — no matter what the cost
Spoilers for 'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6, Episode 5 'Honey'
There are a number of pieces on the board when it comes to the long game of bringing Virginia (Colby Minifie) down. There are the members of the group — our protagonists, who are largely captured and kept beneath her thumb. There are her rangers, enforcing her law, and there are those members of the group who have become rangers, putting them in a compromised position no matter which way you look at it.
There's Morgan (Leslie Jones), who is carving out his own area, safe from Virginia's private eyes... and on the latest episode of 'Fear the Walking Dead', Sherry (Christine Evangelista) introduces some all new players who might just change everything.
Sherry has joined a group of people who call themselves Viginia's "outcasts" — those who used to serve under her but managed to gain their freedom. Morgan is not the first person to leave Virginia's encampments unscathed but people who escape her set a bad precedent. She'd hunt every last one of them to the death, if they could, so these outcasts wear plastic masks to conceal their identity to anyone who might report back to Virginia.
They're not planning on leaving her in the past, however - this group is dedicated to one thing, and one thing only: permanently removing Virginia from power, getting their revenge by killing her.
While this is likely the end goal of the entire season, it's one that the outcasts are willing to acheive even at the cost of other people's lives. After stealing Virginia's weaponized SWAT van, the group is ready to make their attack on Virginia then and there. However, Morgan pleads with them to hold off on their attack until he's able to ensure the safety of his people and other innocents under Virginia's rule.
With Dwight's help — who is seeking a shortcut to a happy ending with Sherry — the group ignored Morgan's plea and attempts to lure Virginia out to end her life as soon as possible. A last-minute change of heart on Dwight's part, and Virginia not showing up in the first place manages to keep the war from breaking out, but only for now.
The group is still ready to start the war and they are a dangerous set of sparks that could, at any moment, set everything ablaze. Armed with one of the most dangerous weapons in the post-apocalypse era, they're a group to watch out for. As things stand, depending on your point of view, they could very well be just as dangerous — if not more so — than Virginia herself.
The next episode of 'Fear the Walking Dead' airs on November 15 at 9 pm ET on AMC.
