But as introduced in the Season 6 premiere, and discussed in a big way in this week’s episode, “Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg,” there’s a threat out there that’s even more terrifying than Ginny. Who are the End is the Beginning people, and why do they scare Fear‘s biggest villain so far?
Spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 6 “Bury Her Next to Jasper’s Leg” past this point.
But we don’t know what the message means, what the key is for, or how big the organization is. We do know that Virginia is aware of them, is afraid of them, and they are potentially far more organized than we knew. That information comes courtesy one of Virginia’s prisoners at the beginning of this week’s episode, played by Ellen Locy. Though the woman initially denies any knowledge of the “End is the Beginning” message, once it’s clear she has the advantage the woman’s whole body language changes. She relaxes, smiles enigmatically, and shoots herself in the head.
Does that make them wrong, and Ginny right; or vice versa? And where does Morgan’s new society, the one he’s been setting up in the background, factor into this? As usual, with anything Walking Dead, the answers won’t be cut and dry. Here’s hoping that whatever replaces Virginia’s hand, though, it’s not a literal iron fist.
Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
