  • First (and last) appearance of Paul.
  • First (and last) appearance of Rowan. (Photograph)
  • Last appearance of the Doomsday Cult.
  • The title of the episode, "Follow Me", refers to Alicia's dream, where Elias and later Alicia tell the real Alicia to "follow them" to PADRE.
  • This episode was made available for streaming to subscribers of AMC Premiere on April 17, 2022.[2]
  • This episode marks Lennie James' 50th appearance on Fear the Walking Dead.
  • Alicia and Morgan are the only main characters to appear in this episode aside from most of the others making a brief cameo appearance in Alicia's dream.
    • Victor Strand and John Dorie Sr. don't appear at all, presumably due to Strand now being Alicia's enemy and Alicia not knowing about John due to him joining the group after she was captured.
  • Alicia's mural on the bunker wall in "The Beacon" appears to be a depiction of her dream about following the zombified Vazquez to PADRE.
  • This episode takes place "a few weeks" after "PADRE".
  • Sanjay's death scream from "Welcome to the Club" is reused, heard once one of the Stalkers is devoured after Arno lets go of the gate due to Paul.
  • In Alicia's dream, Morgan appears to still be wearing Emile LaRoux's clothes which he wore throughout Season 6. In Season 7, he has begun wearing the clothes of the USS Pennsylvania crewmembers instead. Presumably the change simply reflects Alicia's dream portrayal of her friend rather than being a goof.
  • The discovery of the crater filled with radioactive walkers may have been foreshadowed in "Six Hours": when Morgan asks Bea about the radiation-burned walkers outside, she tells him that "they're from the crater. Be careful. They fall apart when you hit them and you don't want them to fall apart on you." However, it's unconfirmed if it was the same crater or not as at least 8 of the 10 warheads went off.
  • As of this episode, Dwight has appeared in more episodes of Fear the Walking Dead than The Walking Dead.

Episode Highlights

  • It's revealed that the Doomsday Cult was forced to abandon the bunker because the nuclear blasts had compromised the structure.
  • The split between the Stalkers and Alicia's Group occurred because her pursuit of PADRE led to a number of cultists dying and reanimating in an unknown event, angering Arno who blamed Alicia for what happened.
    • This explains the reanimated cultists that were encountered and put down by Will and Strand in "The Beacon".
    • The exact number of cultists who died isn't given, but given how many are seen as walkers in "The Beacon" and "Follow Me", it appears to be at least in the dozens.
  • Alicia reveals that a dream of a zombified Elias Vazquez telling her to follow him to PADRE is what has been driving her actions, including Alicia and Morgan following Vazquez in "PADRE".
  • Arno and Sage discover a blast crater filled with numerous walkers that had presumably fell in following the blasts and have been stewing there for months.
