Fear The Walking Dead ending revealed?
The Walking Dead spinoff is renewed through Season 4, but how will the AMC series ultimately end? Speaking to EW, departing showrunner Dave Erickson revealed his vision for the show’s conclusion, if he were still at the helm:
“I think the foundation of [my vision] is in that last big scene between Nick and Madison,’ says Erickson of the season 3 finale scene which ultimately led to Nick attempting to sacrifice himself by blowing up the dam so the rest of the family can escape. “Nick calls her out and he basically says essentially, “This world has allowed you to be who you are and if you had no choice, would you kill me?” She denies it. She says there’s no way I would ever hurt you, but he’s asking a question, which, to me, requires an answer. He’s asking a question that I would like to see play out.”
“In my mind, yeah, there was a reckoning, there was always going to be a final confrontation between mother and son,” says Erickson. “The first thing I re-watched and then reread when I started this job was Heart Of Darkness, Apocalypse Now. Thematically, there’s a lot in Apocalypse that I think resonates for me and I think it’s part of what Fear was meant to be. So whether that comes to pass, I don’t know, but I definitely think you could have looked forward to a final scene — a reckoning between Madison and her children.”
That version of the Fear The Walking Dead series finale will likely never come to pass, but how — and when — would YOU like the show to end?
