Madison (Kim Dickens), Nick (Frank Dillane) and Alicia (Alicia Debnam-Carey) Clark will try to find their place in Broke Jaw Ranch in Season 3, episode 3 of “Fear the Walking Dead.”

According to the synopsis for the episode, the Clarks try to fit in with the new community they found themselves in. As seen in a sneak peek from the episode, the Clark matriarch and her children attend a meeting with other residents of Broke Jaw Ranch. During the assembly, Madison, Nick and Alicia observe and listen intently as Jeremiah Otto (Dayton Callie) and his sons Jake (Sam Underwood) and Troy (Daniel Sharman) discuss the community’s next step after their helicopter was brought down by an unknown party, killing one of their fellow ranch resident last episode.

“We’ve all lost. We share that. Grieving is hard but it’s important that we processed it,” Jake tells the residents.

“It’s more important to prepare, Jake,” a resident named Vernon (Hugo Armstrong) interjects. “I’m sorry. There’s a time and place for mourning. … But who brought down the helicopter?”

When Jake says that they aim to find out who was behind the attack, Vernon angrily replies: “When? What’s your timeline?”

Jeremiah tries to calm Vernon down by saying that once they find out what they’re dealing with, they will take action. “If it’s some wingnut, we’ll act. If it’s a larger challenge, we will act,” Jeremiah says.

“Pay back, Vernon. It’s what my father’s mean,” Troy clarifies. “Whatever this threat is, large or small, we will make this right.”

But being the moral compass that he is, Jake opposes Troy’s revengeful plan. “We’ll meet our justice when we know what it is we’re dealing with,” he tells the residents. “We can afford to lose ourselves. We’re more than a mob. We have to be something hopeful in this world, like my father’s says, ‘If you plan for the future, plan for a better one.’”

The synopsis for the episode also reveals that Madison discovers that Otto’s past mimics her own. While the similarities between Madison and Otto’s pasts are yet to be revealed, showrunner Dave Erickson previously revealed that Season 3 will reveal more details about Madison’s backstory. “We’ve been dancing around Madison’s backstory for quite some time, really since the pilot,” Erickson said. “And [in Season 3] we will start to get a better picture of where she came from, who she is and, you know, why she has become this person who can be incredibly nurturing and supportive for her children, but she is also able to allow violence, she is able to commit crimes. There is a reason for that and it really comes from her past.”

“Fear the Walking Dead” Season 3, episode 3, titled “TEOTWAWKI,” airs on Sunday, June 11 at 9 p.m. EDT on AMC.
