Fear the Walking Dead Season 7 is finished Madison Clark is alive and working for P.A.D.R.E. This story includes spoilers for In Fear the Walking Dead season 7 finale.
In Fear the Walking Dead season 7 finale episode “Gone” Madison Clark is alive and working for P.A.D.R.E. Not only did the “Gone” season finale prove the existence of P.A.D.R.E, but it also revealed that they rescued Madison (Kim Dickens) after she ostensibly sacrificed herself in Season 4 to save her children from a walker horde.
Madison accepted P.A.D.R.E.’s offer to help her find Nick and Alicia if she worked for them as a Collector and rescued youngsters, known as eggs, from their parents and brought them to P.A.D.R.E. Collectors contact “Oriole” at “the birdhouse,” a pier on the Louisiana coast, to deliver eggs for processing aboard a ship bound for P.A.D.R.E.’s classified location.
In Fear the Walking Dead season 7 finale, Madison informs Morgan of the children they “rescue” that P.A.D.R.E. is “the kind of environment a kid would dream about growing up” and “the best shot our kids have for a future.” They separate children from their families because there are “no attachments, no links” at P.A.D.R.E., Madison explains.
Madison was afraid of what would happen if she stopped gathering children because P.A.D.R.E. is so powerful and resourceful: “They’d find Nick and Alicia and make them do what I wouldn’t anymore.” Madison states that the only option to get Morgan’s daughter back is to trade another child to PADRE after rescuing Baby Mo (Avaya White) from her father. Except for Will (Gus Halper), the senator’s aide protecting confidential government documents named “P.A.D.R.E.: Rebuilding Our Country’s Future,” Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Morgan Jones (Lennie James) spent the season hunting for the safe-zone no one was convinced existed.
