The first half of Season 7 has ended with a fever-stricken Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) searching for the supposed haven PADRE and who is all determined to topple The Tower, where a vicious Victor Strand now rules as the despot of the zombie apocalypse.
Backed by the mentor Morgan Jones, Alicia is said to have declared an all-out war against her friend, saying, “I am taking the one thing that matters to you the most. I am taking that tower.” “We’re going to see where that lands this family, this too broken Fear family,” Domingo says about the family feud during the second half of the Fear the Walking Dead Season 7.
As a civil war is said to have broken out between the divided group of survivors choosing Team Alicia or Team Strand, there are victories and losses on both sides. Going into Season 8, James teases, “The shape of the family is going forward and will not be as it has ever been.”
Actors Colman Domingo and Lennie James are called a truce in their war over ‘The Tower’ and preview the Fear the Walking Dead Season 7B, the battle between leaders reportedly said to be Strand and Alicia, and the Season 7 marking the return of Madison Clark.
On asked if Strand’s descent into full-on villainy is inevitable? Or was there a specific point when you thought Strand should finally embrace his dark side? Colman Domingo explained, “Well, I like to believe it’s an ascent to his villainy. I think he’s been building towards this in some way. Strand has always been a little too precarious when it comes to his moral compass.
And then I think that the moment when Morgan joined the journey and he led, it was going against a lot of Strand’s own instincts and I think that was a part of the conflicts, that’s a part of the conflict to a lot of characters. Strand is said to have swallowed his own instincts in order to appease the group. And by the end of season five, I thought it was a great opportunity actually to rediscover whom Strand becomes under these circumstances.”
