Let’s just get this out of the way first: Madison Clark is dead. This is not going to be a Glenn-like incident, where Madison finds a dumpster, nor is it going to be a Daniel Salazar situation where she somehow escapes a massive fire and hundreds of walkers. The Walking Dead might do that to us, but this new Fear the Walking Dead wouldn’t dare troll us like that. It’s over. Kim Dickens has confirmed it.

(Dickens also confirmed her death on The Talking Dead).

Granted, it took some work for the show to get there, and after keeping viewers guessing all season long, showrunners Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss — who also wrote the episode — didn’t make it easy for us to figure out Madison’s fate within the episode by jumping back and forth through multiple timelines. We find at the beginning of the episode that Althea and Madison interacted at some point — in fact, Madison gave Althea her “story.” But we did not know if those events happened after Althea and Co. escaped from the baseball stadium; after Alicia and Nick escaped from the baseball stadium but before they ambushed Althea; or before anyone had even found the baseball stadium yet.
