Blake Sarno is a survivor and a former antagonist of the outbreak in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead. He is a resident of the Broke Jaw Ranch community, where he serves as a soldier for the Ranch Militia.
Nothing is known about Blake's life before the outbreak began.
Blake is among a group of militiamen, including Willy, to round up captive Mexicans and execute them in the name of science. He shows no remorse for the captives who plead for their lives before being killed. After Travis, Nick, Luciana, and Steven ambush the militiamen, Blake goes after the captives and eventually captures Steven, allowing Willy to throw him down the sewers. He also helps handle a re-captured Travis and delivers him to the pit as per Troy's orders. He is among the militiamen to surround Madison when she holds Troy hostage and lowers his weapon after Jake successfully diffuses the situation. When the zombies breach the fuel depot, Blake is among the militiamen to evacuate and return to the ranch.
Blake is at Charlene's memorial service with the other residents listening to Pat talk about her daughter. The next morning, he is having breakfast with friends as Jeremiah informs the crowd about the missing search party. When Jeremiah asks for volunteers to find the search party, Blake is among those to raise their hand.
Blake is among the search party to search for the downed helicopter and Phil McCarthy and his soldiers at the outpost. While on the road, they make a stop and put down the infected inmates and guards from a crashed prison bus so they don't ever stumble upon the ranch. Upon reaching the valley, they find the helicopter missing from the crash site and find the outpost eerily quiet. They quickly discover a pile of seven burned bodies, Phil's men, and Phil himself sitting on a chair reciting a poem as a crow picks at his exposed skull. After being surrounded by Qaletqa Walker and his men, Blake is forced to give up his weapons, water, and shoes. They are sent back to the ranch with orders to flee. During the painful trek back to the ranch, he is among his fellow comrades who agree that they should camp out for the night instead of keep walking.
Blake and his fellow militiamen along with Madison arrive at the ranch dehydrated and with bloody feet. As they are aided by the ranch residents, Blake watches on as Mike breaks down and starts telling the crowd what Walker demanded. Later that day, Cooper and Blake witness Troy causing a scene by preventing the Trimbols from leaving the ranch. He is shocked when a fight breaks out, one that is quickly diminished by Jeremiah after a slap to Troy's face. That night, he is among the militiamen in the armory and listens to Troy's pep talk about defending the ranch. The next morning, he witnesses Madison, Nick, and Jeremiah returning with the dead Trimbol family and listens as Madison informs the crowd what happened.
Blake is part of the mission to rescue Alicia from the Black Hat Reservation. After a gunfight breaks out, he is able to escape with Alicia and the rest of the militia without being harmed. The next morning, Blake arrives as backup when Joseph reports that someone is arriving at the gate. That night, Blake is hanging out with the other militiamen at the mess tent and enjoying coffee. Later, he is on sentry duty with with Joseph and Cooper by the gate when suddenly he and Joseph begin violently throwing up, having been poisoned by Ofelia's anthrax-brewed coffee.
