Cast and Creators Explore the Dark Side of the Ranch’s Founders in Fear the Walking Dead Episode 6

Jeremiah Otto Sr. has made it his mission to protect Broke Jaw Ranch by any means necessary.

But, as it turns out, the land wasn’t always his to protect.

“One of the things this season is about is appropriation and re-appropriation,” says Showrunner Dave Erickson in a new behind-the-scenes video. “..And what we’ve come to learn is that this ranch that the Ottos own was not always theirs.”

“Something they did — a crime committed by all the founders — is coming back to haunt them,” adds Erickson.

With Walker out to avenge the atrocities exacted on his people, the ranchers best shot at survival is coming together as a united community.

Unfortunately, how to best counter Walker pits Troy and Jake Otto against one another, and brings up questions about who will lead after their father is gone.

“This world requires action,” says Sam Underwood, who plays Jake. “Troy represents the darker side of what that is.”

Who will lead: rational Jake or impulsive Troy?
