There wasn’t a clear explanation for why Logan turned bad on Fear The Walking Dead, but now we know who was responsible for the sudden change.
In the previous season of Fear The Walking Dead, fans learned that Clayton (Stephen McKinley Henderson) and Logan (Matt Frewer) founded C&L Denim, and they kept the factory going to help survivors in the apocalypse. They were in charge of leaving the boxes at mile-markers around the state but at one point that all changed.
Warning! Spoilers for the latest episodes of Fear The Walking Dead follow.
Up until the latest episode, it was unclear why Logan and Clayton parted ways—or what drove Logan to pursue a selfish existence. Now, however, we know it because of something Sarah (Mo Collins) did.
In the beginning epilogue of “Leave What You Don’t,” we see Logan on a run to rescue a survivor in need. He calls out to Clayton because his partner is supposed to be closer to the truck-stop where the scared girl radioed from, but Polar Bear never responds.
The reason Clayton doesn’t is that he can’t get to his radio. Sarah and Wendell (Daryl Mitchell) hijacked his rig, leaving him high and dry. Clayton manages to find a vehicle, but we know that his ride inevitably ends in a fatal crash.
Logan doesn’t realize what’s happened, but he becomes resentful of the mission they crafted out when he doesn’t make it to Rebecca in time. He feels like their efforts are worthless and then chooses to pursue loftier goals like working for Virginia (Colby Minifie).
The thing we should take away from Logan’s change is that Sarah made all of it happen. Had she not stolen the truck, Clayton would’ve been around to help Rebecca, and Logan never would’ve become a serious jerk. Then again, the duo was destined to encounter Virginia at some point so maybe the union was inevitable.
Sadly, Logan never gets the opportunity to redeem himself. He has a change of heart in the final moments of season 5, episode 12, but he and the rest of his crew are executed by Virginia’s snipers just as they decide to help Luciana.
