After Morgan (Lennie James) made his move to Fear The Walking Dead, it opened the door for future crossovers. However, the recent deaths of FTWD’s mainstays beg to question if anyone will be left to crossover in the end.

On the latest episodes of Fear The Walking Dead, Morgan has been getting acquainted with some of the heroes we’ve come to know over the past four seasons. He’s met several but the only ones left are Luciana, Victor, and Alicia.

As for the others, Nick is definitely gone and Madison hasn’t been seen in the present day. She could still be alive somewhere out there but her absence gives us the impression that Madison has met a permanent end. It could have been inadvertent or purposely done, though Nick’s reaction to seeing that Camaro tells everything we need to know. That said, we shouldn’t rule out Madison surviving.

In any case, the number of FTWD survivors is dwindling down. Only three mainstays and two new survivors are left and continue on — if they survive. Assuming they do, any or all of them could make the transition to The Walking Dead. Morgan managed to make the jump and there’s nothing inherently stopping the others from doing the same.

At the same time, Morgan’s journey could be brought full circle with a return to TWD — that is once his FTWD adventure has run its course.

When that happens, Morgan probably won’t be alone. He just relearned the value of having friends, meaning someone is going to come along the ride. Of course, that all depends on who survives Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead.

In regards to which characters that could be, my money is on John (Garret Dillahunt) and Althea (Maggie Grace). They’re the two characters most adept at surviving in the post-apocalyptic wasteland and have the most going for him. John is a former police officer with a strong reserve and Althea, well, she has a tactical S.W.A.T. vehicle so they’re both pretty safe. Keep in mind that they may not be the only ones.

The Vultures also appear to still be in the fold, as evidenced by their presence in next week’s episode. So, there could be a collision between them and the allied communities from TWD. A clash between them would be epic in scale and awesome to play out. Nevertheless, the Vultures have a fighting chance at making the jump, too.
