Fear the Walking Dead executive producer Dave Erickson made a name for himself as a writer on Breaking Bad, and he's taking a cue from his previous show on Sunday's episode. "Pablo & Jessica" finds amateur pharmacist Nick (Frank Dillane) going Walter White with Colonia's painkiller supply.
Nick is a resourceful junkie who knows how to stretch a short supply, and he devises a plan with his new bite-proof buddy Alejandro (Paul Calderon) to rip off the drug-addicted gangsters who control what remains of Tijuana. But will chemical experimentation of one kind lead him back into chemical experimentation of another? He's playing with fire here.
