Troy (Daniel Sharman) will be back in “Fear the Walking Dead” season 3 episode 12. A new threat the ranch faces will force Jake (Sam Underwood) to consider leaving. Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) will do her best to keep everyone together. The following article contains spoilers based on the preview video.

After Alicia and Nick (Frank Dillane) managed to unite the two rival factions at the ranch, there’s a new threat they have to face. Jake and Nick will head out to “handle a delicate situation,” according to the synopsis, and they have to deal with a zombie problem while they are out.

Troy will be back next episode, a preview video posted on YouTube shows. “There’s a reckoning at hand. It’s bigger than you can imagine,” Troy says in the video. Since the character already knows the truth about his father, and the fact that he’s back at the ranch with Nick, he may still not have revealed the secret to anyone else. His words, however, sound ominous.

The zombies can be seen breaking through a barrier. Is this part of Troy’s plan to get revenge? The people are already facing water shortage, and this new threat may be the breaking point.

Whatever problem they will face, it’s enough for Jake to consider leaving. There’s another place they can head to, but the journey will be long and perilous, and there’s no guarantee they will be safe in a new place.

In the end, Jake may not have much of a choice. His leadership abilities are being questioned time and again, and they will once again become the focus of next episode.

The preview video doesn’t show Madison (Kim Dickens), Victor (Colman Domingo) or any of the others. Will the hard bargain they struck be all for nothing? If the ranch is overrun with zombies, all they have is the truck-load of water and no home.
