"Fear the Walking Dead's" midseason finale, "Shiva," left more questions than answers, but fortunately for us the series showrunner has given us some insight into what happened and what is coming. During a Q&A with TVLine, showrunner Dave Erickson answered questions about Chris' (Lorenzo James Henrie) meltdown as well as Daniel's (Rubén Blades) fiery death.

TVLine asked the showrunner what is going on with Chris, revealing he went from troubled to downright dangerous in just a few episodes. Erickson answered, saying:

"The thing with Chris is, you’ve got a kid who is a child of divorce, he has a lot of rage directed toward his dad, he’s very alienated and alone, and ironically, with all the s— going on, that’s his greatest fear: to be exiled and to not be understood and to be judged. So if you start with that, in terms of his psychology, then you throw that kid into the apocalypse and confront him with the death of his mother at the hands of his father, he came out of the gate this season not terribly stable."

Erickson also discussed Daniel's apparent death in the midseason finale. The website asked, "Why did Daniel have to die — or should I say 'die'?" and Erickson answered with: 

"Here’s the thing: What’s important for the story, specifically for Ofelia, is that all the characters believe that Daniel burned with the compound. We’re not going to see Rubén [Blades] in the back half [of Season 2], but my hope is that we will see him resurrected in Season 3 in an organic way. I think there’s more story to tell with that character and also more story to tell in that father/daughter relationship."

He further went on to talk about Nick (Frank Dillane), who runs away by himself in a field full of walkers after discovering his mother killed Celia (Marlene Forte). The showrunner was asked if Nick had a plan when running off or if he was just angry. 

"To a certain degree. [Laughs] We connect something in the premiere of the back half," said Erickson. "We find out he had something in his hand that we didn’t know about that makes him a little bit less insane than to just walk off. He also reconnects with someone when we come back in Episode 8."

"Fear the Walking Dead's" midseason premiere will arrive Aug. 21. Until then check out the trailer for the next episode below:
