Fear The Walking Dead Season 8's Zombie Cure Scene Explained By Showrunner
Fear the Walking Dead showrunner Ian Goldberg has spoken about the significance of PADRE's experiments on finding a cure to the zombie virus, as well as the consequences of Shrike's decision to let Finch get bitten by a severed Walker head. Goldberg explained that these experiments add complexity to what PADRE is up to, and may conflict with their philosophy of keeping children safe. The use of radiation to find a cure for the virus is not new in The Walking Dead universe, but if it works for Finch, it could potentially lead to a permanent solution for the virus. However, there is still uncertainty about whether Finch will survive the experiment.
