To determine once and for all what the best episodes of Fear the Walking Dead are, let's rank every Fear the Walking Dead episode from best to worst.

It's not every day you hear the phrase "zombie show spinoff," but that's exactly what Fear the Walking Dead is. The series was created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, the former being the original creator of the comic books. Fear the Walking Dead follows a completely different group during their journey through LA and eventually Mexico, and although the series received some nixed reviews in the beginning, it seemed to have found its footing in the third season and kept up the pace through the following seasons.
