On this episode of Fear the Walking Dead Talk Through, we discuss Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 10, which is titled Close Your Eyes. It was written by co-executive producer Shintaro Shimosawa and directed by co-executive producer Michael E. Satrazemis. This was a bottle episode, but a good one. It only featured two characters: Alicia and Charlie. Charlie became somewhat less annoying this episode, and Alycia Debnam-Carey got to shine with this episode. Compared to last week, this was definitely a better episode, but, for me, it wasn’t outstanding. Though the acting was spot on, some of the dialog and scenes were a bit too on the nose. While the hurricane was definitely more believable this time around, there was one plot twist that I found a bit of a stretch.
Close Your Eyes got a 0.63 in the 18-49 with 1.855 million viewers, which is down from last week‘s 0.68 and 1.878 million viewers. Charts below.

I also took a few minutes at the end of our episode discussion to talk about my recent experiences with AMC Premiere. When it works, it’s not bad. You get to watch shows commercial-free, there is additional content available to Premiere subscribers, and I enjoyed my first week. I was able to sign up using a $5 credit I had from Google Play, so it’s like having a free month. However, there were a few issues that make me fall short of recommending it right now. Listen to the episode for more.
