So... they say the biggest facter with the transition of
Morgan to Fear the Walking Dead is the time line.
Fear is years behind The Walking Dead in terms of
the apocalypse. Morgan will transition in season 8 to
meet up in Texas with Madison, so we can see a time
jump for Fear in season 4.

Fear of the Walking Dead takes place in the same
time frame as The Walking Dead. According to
Tobias, there were already outbreaks in five states
when FEAR started and with nothing reported in
the news other than a strange virus, is it possible
that Dr. Jenner is counting from the first case that
the CDC became aware of rather than the first case
that the public became aware of. Since there were
no cases reported of Walker infection in the five
states mentioned in Fear, it's possible that the
infection was underway at the time Rick was shot.
|OK where does it all start?

her husband Stephan Clark in an auto accident.
Nick Clark - He is a 19 year old former drug addict. Before the fall, his
mother Madison sent him to rehab several times, but Nick reached a point
where no one could tell him what to do or force him into recovery. He would
have to do that all by himself. Nick wants to prove he can rebuild his life, and
ironically, the apocalypse might provide him with that opportunity.

been going to his barbershop for years, but barely knew him. When people began
rising from the dead, Salazar reverted to the man he was in El Salvador, a man
who will do anything to ensure the survival of his family.
Ofelia Salazar - She is the daughter of Daniel & Griselda. She was born &

Griselda Salazar - Strong, big hearted, quiet and deeply religious. She trust
only 2 people on the planet and would die for either of them. Her husband and

Not much is known from a National or International point of
view of the events that led to the fall of civilization. What
information does exist is partial. In particular there doesn't
seem to be any information available on the source or cause
of the virus.
We can see that much more was known about the crisis
than was revealed to the public at the time.

is spreading quickly through LA.
After they escape the riot Travis
and his family seek refuge with the
As civil unrest grows, Madsion and Travis try to figure out a way to protect their families.
I think they wanted to show each of the characters and how they would
survive something like this from ground zero, at very different levels of
their lives, because the original show, you have the adults and you have
the very young kids, and for us we now have the teenagers and the
young adults and we have all different cultures. But I think they really
want to tap into every other aspect of how people would react, so that
everybody has somebody to relate too. Told by Ofelia.
Dr. Bethany Exner - She is a doctor for the US government. She runs the
medical ward at the command post and takes care of people needing medical
help and those running a high temperature who may have the virus.
Art Costa - Art serves as the principle of Paul R. Williams High School. During a school
day observes much of his staff watching a video regarding a walker attacking
emergency service. The next day Art is shocked to only see 5 students get off the
school bus because of the flu. Somewhere in the school he gets bit just like Matt.
Matt Sale - Matt is the boyfriend of Alicia. He has a sort role in the series as
he gets bit and dies early on.
It's used for livestock. Traumatic brain injury is
the only thing that stops it. It's the only way to
stop them. She'll turn Liza and we don't want
her to turn. Dr. Bethany Exner
Tobias - He is wise beyond his years and a student at the high school. He
runs into Madison while she is at the school looking for drugs to help Nick.
Together they tackle Art and Tobias explains to her what is going on on the
internet about the virus. She knew nothing about it. Tobias was the 1st
character to talk of the virus.
Cpl. Andrew Adams - He's a corporal officer in the US military, he has good
intentions but out of his element. He does not fit the mold of an soldier as he
is a questioner and sensitive. He carries on a relationship with Ofelia while on
his post. Andrew tells Daniel of the 2000 infected at the stadium.
Lt. Moyers - Moyers is not good at managing civilians, and can be dismissive
of their questions and concerns offering little or no explanation. He is
domineering and direct. His bluntness makes everyone uncomfortable. He is
assigned to guarding Travis' neighborhood & clearing the surrounding area
Victor Strand -Victor is a mysterious character who has acquired great
personal wealth. He appears to have some knowledge of the outbreak and
how it manifest in humans. He has adapted quickly to the new the new world,
telling Nick the only way to survive a mad world is to embrace the madness.
Tobias states that there were reported
infections in five states, but no mention was
made of which states. It wasn't until season 2,
when Travis talks to George Geary, we learn
which states, Arizona, Oregon, Colorado,
Washington and a 6th, Utah.
Therefore the initial infection began west of the
continental divide and spread eastward across
the country as well as into Canada, when
naming cities that have fallen Greary mentioned
The time varies from person to person, but we
know that muscle impulse resumes after
death...any death. They all come back. We all
come back. This is a captive bolt pistol.
