NY Comic-Con was a pretty exciting one for fans of the Walking Dead franchise. Because in addition to a sneak peek from the upcoming eighth season, a mind blowing announcement was made. The Walking Dead and its spinoff Fear The Walking Dead are finally going to cross over. Madison and Rick aren't exactly meeting up though, as the crossover device will be utilized through the use of a shared character. Fans have been hoping for this type of an event since Fear The Walking Dead was first announced, and now the time has come to debate which character might be the one to close the gap between shows. There are quite a few options here, although the physical distance between the locations is so wide that we'll have to suspend our disbelief a bit.
This is a character fans have been hoping to see return for years now. Morales was a major character in the first few episodes of The Walking Dead, making his debut appearance in the second episode ever. He was in the group's first mission back in Atlanta, and his wife and children were part of the original Atlanta group. When most of the group planned to head to the CDC at the end of Season 1, Morales and his family departed in hopes of finding their family in Birmingham. Because his whereabout are unknown, it's plausible that he could have continued west past Alabama, eventually to cross over with Madison's group on Fear The Walking Dead-- especially since they've left The Ranch.
Alex is someone with an interesting journey on The Walking Dead's spinoff. The character originated in the webseries that accompanied Season 1, Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462. She was so well received that she actress Michelle Ang received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series that year. Alex and another character eventually showed up in Fear The Walking Dead Season 2, but Strand abandoned them to die at sea. She was saved and quickly joined a group of pirates, and we haven't seen her since her brief reappearance. Many fans were hoping that Alex would become a main member of the cast, and her reappearance on TWD would be an exciting event, however unlikely.
