Alicia Clark made some childish mistakes up to this point on Fear The Walking Dead, but a more mature version of the character is on the way in season 2B.

Not everyone makes good decisions. Sometimes bad decisions can have disastrous results. And when you’re living in the zombie apocalypse, sometimes that can mean death. Thankfully, those people and even tv characters can learn from their mistakes.

From the sound of things over on TVLine, this seems to be the case for Fear The Walking Dead‘s Alicia Clark. Alicia was one of the survivors who struggled the most when coming to terms with the apocalypse around her, but that could change when the record-breaking zombie survival drama returns to AMC for the second half of season 2.

In a weekly column on TVLine, Michael Ausiello fields questions from fans of television shows and gives hints at spoilers as well as some inside information about what could be coming up for characters. This week a fan named Sam asked this question about Fear The Walking Dead:

"“Any hints about what’ll happen when Fear the Walking Dead comes back?”"

Thankfully, Ausiello had some information to dish on the character development of Alicia Clark and the impact it could have on the characters and situations around her.

"“Showrunner Dave Erickson recently told TVLine that you can expect to meet a whole new Alicia in the back half of Season 2. Gone will be the impetuous girl who gave away critical intel over the radio to a stranger, and in her place, “We’ll see a woman who really comes of age and hopefully regains her connection with her mother and steps into more of an adult role.”"

A more mature version of Alicia would be a great addition to the show. In the past, many of her impulsive decisions have left her and her family vulnerable. For example, her inability to leave her boyfriend behind in season 1 could have been deadly and giving Jack information about Abigail over the radio was another big mistake.

But thankfully, this is a group of survivors that adapts to their surroundings and can evolve to become survivors. Of course, situations like this can also force characters into changes before they are ready to accept them, which is a problem fans are currently seeing with Chris Manawa. Thankfully, that doesn’t seem to be an issue for Alicia, as she should continue being one of the most interesting characters on AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead.
