In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the showrunner said,
“One of the great upsides of the show last season and this season is because we are in Mexico, it has become something of a bilingual show, which I like. I knew I wanted Daniel to have his own episode, and since that episode took place in Mexico and obviously he was coming into contact with Mexican characters, there was no reason for him to speak English.”
“I hope that people don’t get frustrated by the subtitles, but creatively, it just made sense. If you’re telling a story that’s set in Mexico and the characters are all Spanish-speaking characters, there’s no reason to play it in English.”
And as per Heavy, throughout ‘Fear of the Walking Dead’ Daniel had a tattoo on his lip that shows ‘SN’. According to Dante SN means Sombra Negra that refers to a death squad which actually exists in real life. They are supposedly made of police and military who are targeting the gang members and criminals for a form of Justice.
With beginning the filming of season 8 and making the episode more special, the season premiere has marked the shows 100th episode. In a discussion with Entertainment Weekly, he was asked about the filming of the 100th episode to which he said,
“We never imagined we’d make it to 100 episodes. It seemed like such a far-off goal, it was hard to even contemplate at that time — we just wanted a second season.”
