There are so many good episodes of Fear the Walking Dead, but which ones really stand out? Do you like "So Close, Yet So Far" the best, or is "The Good Man" your favorite episode of Fear the Walking Dead? 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 seems to have found its footing in the third season.

Vote up your favorite episodes of Fear the Walking Dead, and downvote any bad episodes that you really didn't enjoy, despite how much you love the series as a whole. It can be painful to put one Fear the Walking Dead episode over the other when there are so many good ones, which is why you can vote on however many episodes you like.
