Here’s Why Alicia Would Have Been the Best Crossover for The Walking Dead & Fear

Alicia

We just learned tonight that Morgan is going to be crossing over from The Walking Dead to Fear the Walking Dead. I wrote a long story about this for Heavy here, trying to figure out just how Morgan fits in the timelines of the shows (it isn’t easy.) But logistically and creatively, Alicia would have been a much better choice, crossing over from Fear the Walking Dead to The Walking Dead instead. It’s not that I don’t like Morgan. I love the character and am a big fan of the actor. But Alicia would have been the perfect choice, creatively and logistically. Here’s why.

Alycia Debnam Carey is a Phenomenal Actress Who Would Thrive on The Walking Dead

Alycia is an amazing actress. Her role as Lexa on The 100 still has fans talking, years after she left. But she’s not being given enough range or storylines worthy of her talent on Fear. Don’t get me wrong. Fear is a great show now and maybe even better sometimes than The Walking DeadBut Alycia can do so much more than what she’s been given. Fans want to see her grow, like Carol has. As an actress, she’s already ready to take on that role in a post-apocalyptic setting because she’s played it before.


Alicia Would Fit Into The Walking Dead’s Universe Smoothly

Now, I love Morgan. I think Lennie James is a phenomenal actor, and Morgan is one of my favorite characters on the show. But it’s going to be tough to fit him into Fear the Walking Dead’s universe without stretching the limits of believability. Alicia, meanwhile, doesn’t need to stretch believability. Walking Dead is currently years ahead of Fear the Walking Dead. And Alicia is already separating herself from her family in Fear’s current storyline. It would be so easy to just have her disappear from Fear and reappear on The Walking Dead, years down the line, now a badass post-apocalyptic leader. Dare I say…it would be epic.


Alycia Has a Huge Fan Following, Which The Walking Dead Needs

The Walking Dead has been hitting a viewership low lately. It just recently fell to a six-year low. I’m not sure why, because it’s a great show. But it needs an influx of fresh viewers and a new reason for people to get excited. Negan was a great draw, but now it’s time for a new draw. Alycia, meanwhile, has a huge following from The 100. They didn’t all follow her to Fear. But I imagine if she moved on to The Walking Dead, which is a much bigger show, her fans would get excited and tune in to support her. This would bring new, younger viewers to the show, which it needs. Since Morgan is moving to Fear, it’s only fair for Fear to send someone over to The Walking Dead. That character should be Alicia.
