Madison emerged from the first half of Season 8 as a leader again. She overcame PADRE and her past and now wants to reimagine the island as a place of healing to reunite parents and their children. To see if she's able to achieve that goal and how she contends with the return of Troy Otto (Daniel Sharman), be sure to watch Fear the Walking Dead's final episodes, which begin airing on Sunday, October 22 at 9/8c on AMC and AMC+.
During Season 8, Madison (Kim Dickens) battled PADRE alongside Morgan (Lennie James), Grace (Karen David), June (Jenna Elfman), Daniel (Rubén Blades), Dwight (Austin Amelio), and Sherry (Christine Evangelista). Ultimately, they destroyed the brother-sister duo that ran PADRE in their father's memory, killing Shrike (Maya Eshet) and exiling Crane (Daniel Rashid). But Grace dies along the way, and in the aftermath of PADRE's collapse, Dwight and Sherry decide to go their separate ways after the death of their son. Meanwhile, Morgan, who laid his demons to rest during a return to King County, set off with Mo (Zoey Merchant) to keep a long-held promise and find Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).
