Fear The Walking Dead: Passage, by Lauren Signorino & Mike Zunic, is a sixteen part mini series featuring two survivors evading zombies in a refugee camp. This release was done to promote the third season of Fear the Walking Dead and Season seven of The Walking Dead. It is the second mini series to accompany Fear the Walking Dead, along with Flight 462.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look as if Passage will tie-in to the main series in the way Flight 462 did, but he left the door open for links to the mini-series in the future.
|“||The character of the boyfriend in Passage, played by Mike Mosley, we wanted him to be the border guard that Travis and Nick come across in 301—in the premiere—and then, frankly, it became a question of scheduling, it didn't pan out the way we wanted. ... The good news is you do have these characters you have established who you can thread back in if it works organically. You also have the benefit of knowing that they are out there, knowing that there is a resource, and then you sort of wait and see where it goes.||”|
|“||A fearsome survivor agrees to help an injured woman in exchange for an apocalyptic sanctuary.||”|
— Official Synopsis
Part One Edit
Original Air Date: 17th-Oct-2016
A woman in a bloodstained Hazmat suit cautiously navigates a seemingly-abandoned military camp where a dead soldier is slumped up against a truck and a burned out tent is still smoldering. The hazmat survivor catches sight of an injured woman hobbling through the camp when she is suddenly attacked by two zombified soldiers, but is able to take them down with a knife. Meanwhile, the woman briefly hides behind a vehicle before running off once again. Presumably hiding from the woman in the suit.
Part Two Edit
Original Air Date: 24th-Oct-2016
Aware of the fact that the injured woman, Gabi is spying on her, Sierra dresses an Infected in the Hazmat suit and then ambushes Gabi. She wants to know why Gabi is following her. Gabi admits to following Sierra and says that it was because Sierra can kill the infected, and she (Gabi) couldn't. Sierra then uses Gabi as a shield so she can take down the infected dressed in the Hazmat suit. Sierra begins to walk away, but Gabi pleads with her not to leave. Sierra enquires as to how Gabi injured her leg. Gabi shows her that she's not bitten, and says she twisted it on the road.
Part Three Edit
Original Air Date: 31st-Oct-2016
Gabi and Sierra enter one of the watchtowers of the military camp and survey the damage. Sierra cleans her knife in the leg of her suit and tells Gabi she has nowhere to go. Gabi asserts that she does. Sierra isn't convinced Gabi does know a safe place as she would be there already. Gabi says they head south, towards Mexico. Sierra shoots down the idea, saying that the border is crawling with Infected as when the infection hit people tried to head both north and south. Gabi assures Sierra that there is a tunnel under the border. Gabi's boyfriend was border patrol and he sealed the tunnel after the infection hit and then went to check it out, with Sierra noting that he hasn't returned. Gabi persists- saying that Sierra needs a safe place and that she (Gabi) needs help. Sierra reluctantly agrees, but reminds Gabi that she (Sierra) doesn't need Gabi.
Part Four Edit
Original Air Date: 7th-Nov-2016
Gabi and Sierra are trudging down a road towards the border. They seem to be in the middle of a discussion, but Sierra keeps pulling ahead and tells Gabi to keep up. Sierra admits to being from Los Angeles, that she left when the military came, but that it didn't matter because "the bombs followed us." Gabi tells Sierra that "you are not the only one to lose someone." Gabi says that she lost her sister because "I couldn't stop them." Sierra unsheathes her knife and tells Gabi to go for the eye, temple or base of the skull, but be careful not to hit the skull.

The Boarder Patrol guard believes Colton and walks off. Colton makes his way back to Gabi and she asks him why he lied.
