Fear the Walking Dead built up an Alicia plot in Fear the Walking Dead season 4, but fans are finally getting what they wanted from her character.
Fear the Walking Dead season 4 didn’t deliver on the Alicia storyline, but fans are now getting what they expected from her character. After Madison’s death a year ago, there was anticipation that Alicia would take over as the group’s leader. The series, on the other hand, has other ideas for Fear the Walking Dead’s future.
After moving on from Madison and Nick, the show reassembled its ensemble in season 4 from a skeletal crew of main group survivors. Only Alicia and Strand had been on the show since the first season, thus they were the only ones there. With this in mind, as well as the amount of development her character had gotten, several argued that Alicia was the only character who had actually earned the position of leader. Rather than moving in that way, Fear the Walking Dead merged her group with Morgan’s and let Morgan take command. The other characters eventually accepted Morgan’s role, but there were still pleas for Alicia to be given her due.

After years of waiting, the series is finally delivering the Alicia plot that audiences were denied in season 4. When Morgan left and left the fate of the gang in Alicia’s hands, it was established that the show was heading in this direction. While Morgan led the way for the most of the conflict with Strand, Alicia has been chosen to bring it to a close. Fear the Walking Dead season 7, episode 14, “Divine Providence,” marked the show’s first complete episode in which Alicia served as the group’s acting commander. Alicia managed to defeat Strand and get the main party into the cave, despite the fact that they’re still not out of the woods.
Fear the Walking Dead‘s decision to have Alicia lead the final battle was an unexpected plot twist and a long-awaited payoff for her seven-season journey as a character. Alicia made a lot of development in Season 7, when she was forced to lead a group she didn’t want since she was confined in Teddy’s bunker. But now that she’s in control, she’s embracing the responsibilities that come with it.
It’s important to note that what Fear the Walking Dead is doing with Alicia right now isn’t a permanent alteration. Morgan is currently on his own, but it will only be a matter of time before he returns. When he returns, he’ll most likely resume his previous role. Even if Alicia’s reign as leader is doomed to fail, it’s still a narrative that the show has been building for for years, and one that had to happen sooner or later. If Fear the Walking Dead is truly killing her off, as the show has hinted, it makes sense for her journey to end on a strong note.
