There is no Next Episode of Fear the Walking Dead planned.
Nick awakens in a heroin den in an abandoned church and finds his friend Gloria eating one of the bloodied corpses. While fleeing, he is hit by a car and hospitalized. Nick's doctor tells Madison and Travis that Nick's claims about the incident are heroin hallucinations. With Liza's aid, Travis tries to mend things with rebellious Christopher, and Travis believes Nick after visiting the church. Alicia becomes more worried about Nick's chemical dependency. At school, Madison confiscates Tobias' knife. He warns her about a mysterious epidemic. The next day, school closes early due to the news video of a violent man at first being little scathed by police bullets; Travis and Madison had been caught in that traffic-jammed scene the night prior. Nick escapes from the hospital and meets with Calvin, hoping to learn if the drugs Calvin sold him were bad and caused him to hallucinate in the church. Calvin drives Nick to the riverfront, where Calvin plans to kill him in order to prevent him from exposing Calvin as a drug dealer. In the ensuing struggle, Calvin is mortally shot. After Travis and Madison arrive, the zombified Calvin attacks them. Nick runs over Calvin repeatedly with Travis' truck, and the three watch in disbelief as the mutilated Calvin is still able to turn his head towards them.
After the run-in with zombified Calvin, Nick, Madison, and Travis choose to flee to the desert and want Alicia, Liza, and Chris to follow. Alicia finds Matt ill in his disheveled house. Travis arrives and sees a bite on Matt, who convinces Alicia to go. The group returns home to gather supplies. Nick suffers heroin withdrawal, so Madison drives to her school to get him OxyContin. There she encounters Tobias scavenging food. A zombified Artie tries to bite Tobias, so Madison kills Artie and drives Tobias home. Chris' bus is trapped in a traffic jam caused by a fatal zombie shooting. He films the event and joins in a protest against that and other recent fatal police shootings, when Travis and Liza meet up with him. A riot erupts after police mortally shoot another zombie, but the three Manawas find refuge with the Salazars in their gated barbershop-home. Travis tells Madison to take the kids to the desert without him; he will catch up. Alicia witnesses her zombified neighbor, Mr. Dawson, attacking Mrs. Cruz across the street, but Madison prevents her from intervening. The group inside the barbershop remains trapped, while the riot outside intensifies.
While a riot rages outside, the barbershop occupants flee due to a mob-set fire in the adjacent store. The group reaches Travis' truck and escapes, but not before Griselda is injured by a collapsing scaffold. They drive her to a hospital, but it is blocked by police due to zombie activity. The group drives to Madison's house, where Nick, Madison, and Alicia temporarily flee when the zombified Mr. Dawson attempts to enter after hearing the barking dog Nick had let in. Nick leads Madison and Alicia to the Trans' house, where they take a shotgun but leave without the shells. Alicia returns to get them but must flee the zombified Susan. Travis' group reaches his and Madison's house. Daniel fatally shoots Dawson, who is attacking Travis. All three families decide to stay the night and evacuate in the morning. Nurse Liza tends to Griselda's injured foot but notes that she will die if not treated by a doctor. Ofelia tells Daniel they should flee with Travis, but Daniel insists his family can survive alone and will join his cousin later. The next morning, as the Clarks and Manawas start driving away, the National Guard arrives and quarantines the block. While Travis says, "It's going to get better," Daniel laments that it's, "too late," as he watches a guardsman mark the neighboring house.
Days after the National Guard quarantines the neighborhood into a Safe Zone (aka DZ), residents try to live normally. Tensions build under military rules. Madison is stressed by extra work caused by her home's overcrowding and Travis' new role as civilian liaison. Chris shows a video to Travis and Madison of a signaling light from the Dead Zone. Travis talks Doug into getting mental help. Liza medically helps neighbors. Nick steals morphine from Hector via IV drip. Ofelia kisses Adams, who was unable to get Griselda's medicine. Madison exchanges signals with the flashing light in the Dead Zone. She sneaks outside the fence to investigate and finds evidence that the guardsmen killed civilians, even the uninfected. Travis learns that Doug had been hospitalized over his mental issues. Dr. Exner determines that Liza is not a nurse. Daniel warns Madison of his El Salvador experience, when the sick were taken under the guise of receiving hospitalization but instead killed. Soldiers takes Griselda and Nick to a hospital, but Nick's family protests his departure. Liza agrees to go to assist the medical team, despite not wanting to leave her son. Travis retreats to the roof and sees the signal from the Dead Zone. Seconds later, he sees and hears gunfire, followed by darkness.
In a military cell, Strand torments Doug, who breaks down and is removed. Strand bribes a guardsman to save feverish Nick. Liza helps Dr. Exner with patients at the hospital. Ofelia hurls debris at the Safe Zone gate in protest that soldiers took Griselda. Adams calms her and takes her home. Chris is devastated that Liza left voluntarily to help at the hospital, but Travis promises to bring her back. Madison discovers Adams being detained in the Trans' basement by Daniel. Alicia and Chris get drunk in and vandalize the abandoned home of a wealthy family. Strand recruits Nick for an escape plot. Travis convinces Moyers' squad to take him to the hospital to check on his friends. While en route, Moyers encourages Travis to shoot a zombie, but he has not the wherewithal. The soldiers stop to assist another squad in a building infested by zombies, who bite most including Moyers. The few survivors flee and drop off Travis near the Safe Zone. Travis learns that Daniel tortured Adams into revealing what "Cobalt" means: in the morning, all civilians will be killed, and the guardsmen will evacuate the city. Griselda dies of septic shock at the hospital; Liza shoots her brain to prevent reanimation. Daniel visits a nearby sports arena to verify Adams' story that it was sealed with 2,000 now-zombified civilians inside.
With Cobalt about to be initiated, the group prepares to evacuate the neighborhood as well as rescue Liza, Griselda, and Nick, with Adams agreeing to be their guide. Adams privately warns Travis that Daniel will kill Adams when his usefulness has ended, and Travis decides to release him. They then proceed to the National Guard's headquarters. Daniel distracts the guards at the headquarters by leading a horde of walkers from the arena to the perimeter. Travis, Madison, Daniel, and Ofelia infiltrate the base, while Alicia and Chris stay behind with their vehicles. Inside the base, Strand and Nick initiate their escape plan, with Strand callously leaving the other detainees behind. Meanwhile, the walkers manage to breach the perimeter defenses and begin to swarm the base. Travis' group comes across the holding cells and sets the detainees free before reuniting with Nick, Liza, and Strand. They try to escape through the medical ward, where they discover Dr. Exner has euthanized all of the patients. Dr. Exner tells them of an escape route before presumably committing suicide. Before they can escape, the group encounters Adams, who shoots Ofelia in the arm. Enraged, Travis brutally beats Adams and leaves him for dead. Strand leads the group to his oceanside mansion, where he reveals to Nick that he owns a yacht just off the coast called the Abigail, which he plans to escape on. On the beach, Liza reveals to Madison that she had been bitten during the escape. Liza pleads with Madison and Travis to euthanize her before she turns. Travis promises to protect Chris before shooting Liza. Afterwards, Madison tries to comfort Travis in his grief.
