Fear the Walking Dead has always been about one family’s struggle to survive the zombie apocalypse. But what happens when that family starts to splinter? We saw some definite division among the Clarks in the two-hour midseason premiere on Sunday night. Alicia essentially told her mother Madison to back off and cede true power on the ranch over to Jake. Not only that, but she also instructed the Black Hat leader Walker to no longer hold secret meetings with her mom.
Given that Alicia is starting to find a little more of her voice at Broke Jaw Ranch and get accustomed to life in this world, we’re starting to think that they could actually have quite a bit more in common than they used to. We just don’t think the odds are that great of it happening … at least right now. With that being said, there are a few different Fear the Walking Dead characters who would be fun on the flagship show. Alicia and Maggie would be a fun duo, as would Madison and Rick and Strand with .. well, almost anyone. We’re still going to consider this a possibility.

With Madison and Walker away on a mission to buy water, it fell to Alicia and Nick (Frank Dillane) to hold things down at the Ranch, which was no easy task but one Alicia took care of with grace and honor. She talked some angry ranch-dwellers down when they were confronting Jake about the water shortage. Later, she stopped one of them from double-dipping at the well, proving that she’s willing to enforce the rules against the group of which she’s a member. She even revealed to the people that the water shortage was much more severe than Walker and her mother were letting on, and said that they all had to work together if they were going to survive.
Alycia Debnam-Carey talks about Alicia’s survival tactic on Fear The Walking Dead in NYC. Watch this video below.
The actress opened up about her character Alicia, and how she survives in that world of zombies. “She has been able to keep a sense of herself the whole time,” she shared.

But the crowning moment for Alicia in the premiere came at the end of the episode. During a stand-off between militiamen and Black Hatters over the Nation digging for water, Alicia took a major stand, jumping in and helping them dig, extending a symbolic olive branch showing that at least one white person wanted to coexist.
