Fear the Walking Dead season 8 is finally exploring an old Madison storyline that was originally planned for season 4. The show's co-showrunner, Dave Erickson, had intended for Madison to gradually turn into a villain. However, Madison's character arc changed after Erickson left the show. Now, in season 8, Madison is being portrayed as a potential villain, as she becomes enraged and seeks to kill someone who threatens her and her daughter. The final episodes of the season will determine whether Madison fully embraces her villainous side or seeks redemption.
