"The World Needs Rick Grimes": The Walking Dead Keeps Proving Rick Was The Franchise's Best Leader
In Fear The Walking Dead season 8, Morgan's fate shows why Rick Grimes remains the franchise's best lead character. Despite his criticisms of Rick's leadership in The Walking Dead, Morgan's predicament after giving up his daughter to the villains in Fear The Walking Dead illustrates how taking on Rick's role is harder than it seems. Madison, a returning character in Fear The Walking Dead season 7, is another character who rivals Rick and has not given up against PADRE's villainy. While Fear The Walking Dead builds up the legend surrounding Rick, it also demonstrates that other characters can take up his mantle.
