Fear the Walking Dead season 8 brings back villain Troy Otto, continuing the trend of reviving dead characters in The Walking Dead franchise. The show often leaves characters' deaths open-ended, allowing for surprising comebacks later on. This defies logic and has happened three times in Fear the Walking Dead. The return of Madison, who sacrificed herself in season 4, was especially unbelievable. Troy's return, after being killed in season 3, is also unlikely considering the severity of his injuries. The series' habit of bringing characters back from the dead challenges realism.
