The rules of the game have changed in Fear the Walking Dead season 7 as the super apocalypse has arrived. As if the walkers weren’t bad enough, now everyone has to contend with nuclear fallout from Teddy’s missile launch. Here’s what you can expect in the Fear the Walking Dead season 7 premiere.

The Fear TWD landscape has been transformed by the nuclear fallout from the missiles. The problem is that the fallout is only the beginning. There is also the challenge of dealing with weather patterns and wind blowing particles around, or irradiated walkers wandering around contaminating the landscape. It’s a whole new world of terror out there.

What is Fear the Walking Dead season 7 episode 1 about?

Here’s the synopsis of Fear the Walking Dead season 7 episode 1, “The Beacon”: “While most of the landscape has been destroyed by nuclear warheads, Strand thrives in one of the few inhabitable places left. His search for survivors uncovers a stranger with an unexpected connection to Strand’s past.”

We know that Strand (Colman Domingo) found a warehouse to ride out the launch of the nuclear missiles. It was more than just a warehouse, though. It was filled to the brim with priceless artifacts thanks to its resident historian, Howard (Omid Abtahi) who was trying to preserve the treasures.

Instead of being obliterated by the nuclear blast it looks like Strand ended up being far enough away from the blast that he survived and now he’s thriving. But when a mysterious stranger shows up, it upends the tranquility of Strand’s utopia and sends him on a mission to connect with an element of his past that he thought was lost forever.
