“Fear The Walking Dead” Season 5 finale spurred even more questions as it seemingly killed off one of the main characters, Lennie James’ Morgan Jones. The ambiguous ending of the former “The Walking Dead” character spurred a particular long-standing fan theory concerning Kim Dickens’ Madison Clark.

Viewers of AMC’s “Fear The Walking Dead” were shocked by the loss of Madison in Season 4 as she had been a strong character even from the start. Others further speculated that the former leader would resurface in Season 5 after messages akin to what the heroine would say started popping up on trees.

To fans’ disappointment, however, Madison’s daughter, Alicia Clark — played by Alycia Debnam Carey — found the mystery tree carver to be the lone traveler Wes.

Now that Morgan is facing a similar abrupt end, a new theory has sprung from the “Madison is alive” train of thought. Fans speculate that Madison will make her appearance in Season 6, saving Morgan from his sure-death scenario.

The Hollywood Reporter brought this up with the “Fear The Walking Dead” showrunners Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss, who only have one thing to say about it. “That is a fascinating theory,” Chambliss offered. “And we’ll just have to wait for season six to see how things go.”

Although Madison’s on-screen death didn’t produce a dead body, the two showrunners weren’t keeping it a secret that Madison’s “departure” was necessary for the story to progress. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s out of the show entirely, and their answer to THR’s question may provide some food for thought in the coming season.

Dickens herself doesn’t believe that her character would simply let herself die. According to the Madison actress, she’s “pretty sure Madison would have shimmied up that wall.”

With speculations on Dickens making her re-entry into the series, James’ character may not be out of commission just yet. Chambliss and Goldberg reiterate that Morgan’s current predicament is excessively difficult, but they don’t outright say that he’s gone.

“But for Morgan, the question is whether or not he’s going to be able to take his own advice and literally live 30 seconds past when the camera cuts in that final shot,” Chambliss said. “And that’s just something people are going to have to wait and see.”
