***The following interview contains spoilers for 7.11***
In last night’s all-new episode of Fear the Walking Dead
, Daniel (Rubén Blades)’s mind continues to break down and he takes off on his own, thinking Ofelia is alive. Luciana (Danay Garcia), who has been helping him with his memory, and Wes (Colby Hollman) go after him, while the others go after the weapons cache. Things go from bad to worse when the three of them are captured by Arno (Spenser Granese), who uses Daniel’s mental state to his advantage, telling him that he has Ofelia and will take him to her, if he tells him where the weapons are. Daniel sends him to the wrong coordinates, but in the end tortures Arno and puts Luciana and Wes in danger trying to get back his daughter.
Recently, SciFi Vision talked to Blades, Garcia, and Hollman at a roundtable interview about how dangerous Daniel has become and if he still can be trusted and useful.
“I think what happens right now is that Daniel is traveling between the dark and the light,” Blades told SciFi Vision. “I mean, when he's in the light, he's very effective…I mean, Daniel got them there, but he got him out of there as well. So, that's the two sides of the coin that Luciana is considering in the end, the larger plan, the longer view. It’s like, he can help [them] actually, with Strand (Colman Domingo). If we lose him, Morgan (Lenny James) may not have the capacity to understand what Strand is going to be doing, and how Strand thinks, as Daniel does. So, he is dangerous, and in that state, when he's in the dark, he can get you killed, but when he's in the light, he can save you. So, it's like a roll of the dice at this point.”
