This article is about the Fear episode. You may be looking for the character.

"Amina" is the fifteenth episode of the seventh season of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead. It is the one-hundredth episode of the series overall. It premiered on May 29, 2022. It was written by Andrew Chambliss & Ian Goldberg and directed by Michael Satrazemis.


As the survivors prepare to escape the area by raft, Alicia turns back to save one more person trapped in the fallout.


A massive number of masked, frantic survivors carrying supplies make their way through the Texas landscape. Barely conscious and extremely feverish, Alicia is carried on a stretcher by Dwight and June and experiences flashbacks of various walkers attacking before passing out again.

On a beach, Alicia notices a bird landing next to her stretcher. Jacob Kessner alerts everyone else that she's waking up. June warns Alicia not to stand up, as she's low on fluids and febrile, but Alicia ignores her orders, so June sends Jacob to get saline and the epinephrine. Alicia notices the frantic survivors prepping the rafts, and June explains that Strand's Tower is burning and Alicia notices a large cloud of smoke rising in the distance. She explains that Texas is going to be flooded with all the radiation stored within the radioactive walkers when they burn, rendering the area completely uninhabitable. The group doesn't know where they're going yet, and Morgan hasn't made landfall yet either. Strand isn't with them, as he didn't want to come with the group and, as far as they know, he's still in the Tower. As Alicia looks around, Jacob brings over the packed med kit in which he has included adrenaline in case Alicia needs it.

Alicia notices the young girl that she had encountered before nearby and guesses that she heard the message that Alicia had sent out. However, when Alicia gets to where she had seen the little girl, she's gone. The little girl catches Alicia's attention again and tells Alicia that she needs to find her friend, who is out there somewhere. The girl asks Alicia to help her find him as her friend knows how to get to PADRE. The girl runs off towards the Tower and, after a moment's hesitation, Alicia follows her.

Following the girl's tracks across the ash-covered landscape, Alicia puts down a walker trapped beneath a shopping cart. Luciana calls Alicia, asking where she is. Alicia passes by Al's abandoned SWAT van as she continues on. She explains to Luciana that she had found the girl she had told the others about. The girl might know where PADRE is and they're going to need a place to go. Luciana asks why Alicia had gone off on her own, and she explains that she can't put anyone else in danger, asking that they not come looking for her. Resting against a tree, Alicia experiences several more flashes of walkers before spotting the little girl nearby. The girl ignores Alicia's calls and questions about PADRE, but when Alicia catches up to and grabs her, it turns out to be a walker instead. Swinging her prosthetic arm at the walker, Alicia falls to the ground and gets bitten again in the metal arm before she bashes its head in. Removing the protective glove over the arm, Alicia hallucinates it as being an actual arm, just with a skeletal hand and missing the skin on the lower part spreading downwards from where she was bitten. Alicia experiences a nightmarish flashback of being bitten by the zombified Senator Elias Vazquez. Looking at her reflection in a puddle of water, Alicia hallucinates herself as a walker.

Alicia awakens in the back of the SWAT van with the little girl, who tells her that she didn't know if Alicia was going to wake up or not. Alicia sees that her prosthetic arm has been removed and is lying on the van's floor beside her, and the girl explains that she found Alicia passed out on top of a walker body after hearing her scream. The girl then dragged her to the SWAT van, but Alicia almost didn't make it. The girl refuses to identify herself, but she already knows who Alicia is, having come to the beach because she had heard Alicia's message. The girl refuses to remove her mask despite it being safe in the SWAT van, telling Alicia that she doesn't take it off. Alicia recalls that the little girl had helped her in the woods and asks why she didn't stay. The girl explains that she was looking for her friend, and asks if Alicia is sick because of her arm and if a walker had bitten her. Although the little girl insists that it's okay to tell her as she's not scared of bites, Alicia tells her that it doesn't matter, as there's nothing that can be done about it.

Reattaching her arm, Alicia looks through the supplies still in the van and questions if the little girl's friend can really help them to find PADRE. The girl insists that he can, but they have to find him first, as he's all that the little girl has left and is like family to her. Alicia explains that she's looking for Tylenol or something else that can bring down her fever. The girl asks if the fever is what's going to kill the infection and Alicia compliments her on how smart she is. The girl comments that her mother had always called her too smart for her own good, which Alicia admits her own mother had always told her too. Alicia finds a tape labeled "Amina" and remembers that it's Madison's interview with Al. Alicia brushes off the tape's importance and puts it in her bag.

The little girl doesn't know where her friend is, but she intends to send a message to her friend like Alicia did from the Tower. Having heard Alicia's message from far away, the girl is certain that her friend will hear it wherever he is. Alicia says it's too dangerous. The girl believes that Alicia could make it and that she can help her, but Alicia points out that they barely made it to the SWAT van. Alicia wants to return to the rafts before the walkers make it to the flames, but the girl grabs Alicia's gun, refusing to go on the rafts. Grabbing the gun from the girl, Alicia reveals that it's unloaded, as there aren't many bullets left.

The girl questions why Alicia followed her in the first place if she wasn't going to help, and Alicia explains that she had wanted to save the girl and her friends and do something that might outlast her. Alicia points out how sick and weak she is now, suggesting that she might not even make it back to the beach in her current state. The girl insists that Alicia is wrong, that she can beat the infection and help her friends. As proof, the little girl reveals a healed bite mark on her own arm, pointing out that she's still here in spite of it. The girl again asks Alicia to take her to the Tower and make contact with her friend, as he's the one who had saved the girl. Her friend can save Alicia too and then get everyone to PADRE.

Alicia and the girl make their way towards the Tower and Alicia asks when and how the bite on the girl's arm had happened, guessing that it must've happened a while ago, since the bite mark has healed. The girl refuses to answer and, as a walker approaches them, offers to take care of it herself, as the walker is too much for Alicia to handle in her increasingly weakening state. However, she refuses, saying the walker is too tall for her, so the girl hands Alicia a bullet on a chain to use on the walker. Alicia demands to know where the bullet came from, and the little girl admits that it had fallen off Alicia's neck when she was pulling her to the SWAT van. Alicia refuses to use it on the walker and tries to stab it with the blades on her prosthetic arm. However, she is overcome by another dizzy spell and flashbacks of walkers, and only stabs the walker in the neck before she collapses. Alicia's blades get stuck in the chain link fence stuck in the walker, but the little girl saves her by putting down the walker with a hammer. The little girl chides Alicia for almost getting herself killed, but Alicia says everything's fine, since the walker was put down and no one got hurt.

Alicia claims that she didn't want to use the bullet, as it would've drawn more walkers, but the little girl knows that it's not the real reason. She finally admits that the bullet is for committing suicide before she dies and turns into a walker. Once Alicia knows that her friends are okay, she's going to end her own life, but the little girl is making things harder. The girl asks if Alicia is having dreams about turning into a walker, and reveals that she had them too when her fever was really bad. The girl is insistent that her friend can help Alicia and she won't end up as a walker, so Alicia can use the bullet the next time that she needs it.

Alicia and the girl approach the blazing Tower with a massive herd of radioactive walkers approaching it. Alicia states that they're never going to get up to the Tower and they should go back to the rafts, suggesting that the girl's friend might hear the message from the beach. The girl refuses to leave, even if she has to go inside by herself. Alicia insists that no one would be able to make it up there. The girl asks about the other people who heard Alicia's message and if Alicia will just let them walk into that. Alicia says that, if anyone heard her message, they'll turn around when they see the Tower, but the girl points out that they won't know to go to the beach and they could end up someplace worse. A few walkers are drawn in from the Tower by their argument and Alicia goes to deal with them, but she experiences flashbacks of walkers reaching out towards her again, including Will, and she collapses. As she fades in and out of consciousness before passing out again, she sees the little girl take down the walkers with her hammer and then broadcast a distress call over the radio.

Alicia awakens on a stretcher carried by Sarah, June, Luciana, Dwight and Daniel. Luciana explains that they wouldn't leave her behind and the four put down the stretcher at Alicia's request. Dwight explains that they had heard her SOS and Josiah LaRoux introduces himself, with Sarah explaining that Josiah is an ally who got to Alicia before they did. Alicia sees no sign of the little girl, mentioning that she can help them find PADRE. Alicia tells them that the little girl had radioed them for help, but Luciana reveals that it was Alicia herself who had radioed them, and she points out that they don't even know if PADRE is real. Although Alicia believes that the little girl had helped kill the walkers, Dwight asks if she's sure about that and he points out the blood on Alicia's arm blades as proof that she had killed them herself.

June notices that Alicia is still burning up and Alicia admits that she had taken the adrenaline shot and insists that the little girl is real, but Josiah informs Alicia that she was alone when he found her. Alicia guesses that the little girl must've gone back to the Tower in order to send a message to find her friend that can help them find PADRE. Alicia insists upon going back to the Tower. Dwight points out that they don't even know if the little girl is real, and Luciana asks why saving the little girl is so important to her. Alicia believes that it's not just how she's going to save her friends, but how she's going to save herself too.

June believes that going back to the rafts is Alicia's best shot, but Alicia reveals that the little girl got bit and survived because her friend helped her. However, Luciana has seen someone tell the exact same lie before, and Alicia admits that she's been dreaming for months about dying and turning into a walker. Alicia doesn't want to die and turn into a walker, and she's convinced that the little girl can help her live. June suggests that Alicia is just seeing the little girl because she wants to, but while Alicia knows how it sounds, she's convinced that the little girl is real. Daniel notes that when people doubted him, it didn't feel good, and Sarah points out that Daniel wasn't operating with all of his faculties, causing Daniel to joke that he might still be not. Daniel vows to help Alicia because she helped him with his issues. Telling Daniel that she owes him one, Luciana agrees to help too, with June agreeing that Alicia will clear the tunnel faster with help and Dwight commenting that Sherry will kill him if he lets Alicia go alone. Commenting that she doesn't want to be the only asshole who said no, Sarah agrees to help, and she pulls Josiah in too.

Near the tunnel entrance, Alicia tries to raise the little girl on the radio while her friends work to clear the tunnel. Alicia wonders about the girl being real for a moment before the girl answers her. The girl reports that she's moving up the stairs and she thinks that she can get to the roof from here. Alicia orders the girl to stay where she is as it's too dangerous to do this on her own, reporting that she's coming, and her friends are clearing the tunnel for her. Before the transmission breaks up, the girl tells Alicia that, once she's through the tunnel, the stairs are clear. Taking her single bullet, Alicia loads her gun in preparation for what's coming.

Luciana reports to her that they've cleared a path through the tunnel and, if the girl is in the Tower, they can get to her. June and Sarah refuse to let Alicia go in alone, while Josiah reports that, although they opened the tunnel up pretty good, they can't be sure that it'll be stable for long. Addressing her friends, Alicia orders them to get back to the rafts and prepare to leave, promising to radio them if she learns where PADRE is. Alicia tells Dwight that Sherry needs him, Sarah just found her brother, Daniel has to be there for Charlie, and Luciana has to show Arno's people the way, while Alicia has to do this on her own. Reluctantly accepting this, Luciana promises to see Alicia and the girl at the shore. Alicia dons her gas mask and enters the tunnel.

As walkers wander the burning Tower, Alicia climbs the stairs and sees more flashes of walkers. Growing increasingly weaker and struggling to climb the stairs, Alicia tries to radio the girl, asking where she is, finally learning that she's on the roof and she needs Alicia's help. Alicia sees a bird flying above her in the stairwell and she eventually manages to make it to the smoke-filled roof, where she finds the little girl still alive, much to her relief. Alicia admits that she doesn't want to die, and she prepares to find the girl's friend. However, Alicia's transmitter has been destroyed, much to her anger and frustration.

The girl reveals that the friend that she's been talking about all along is actually Victor Strand. Alicia collapses against the wall, remembering Strand's betrayal of her the night before and the things that he had told her. Angry, frustrated and confused, Alicia decides to go back to the beach, but the little girl insists that they need to help Strand because he's Alicia's family. While Alicia tells her that the girl doesn't know what Strand is capable of, the girl tells her that she knows everything that Alicia does, and that Strand can save the both of them. Alicia angrily demands to know if the girl had told her the truth about anything, and the girl insists that it was all the truth, and she can help Alicia if Alicia helps Strand. After Alicia admits that she'd rather die than save Strand, the girl questions why and Alicia tells her that it's because Strand took everything from her. The girl encourages Alicia not to let Strand take her life too: if Alicia leaves Strand here, she'll die. Alicia collapses on the ground and, looking at the little girl mirroring her position, asks why she cares what happens to him. "It's not about Strand. It's about you," insists the little girl.

Alicia passes out, and when she wakes up again, it's to the sound of the roof door opening and the little girl disappearing again. Barely even able to walk anymore, Alicia reenters the stairwell, where she finds the bird again, and follows it into Strand's penthouse apartment, where Alicia finds a drunk Strand, who thinks that Alicia is a trick of his mind. Alicia tells Strand that she's real, before collapsing on a couch. Strand tells Alicia that she has to get out of here, but Alicia is convinced that she can't now and that she's not gonna make it. Strand apologizes, telling Alicia that he'd wanted to give her everything, but Alicia states that he didn't give her anything, but rather, took everything from her. He asks if she's referring to his murder of Will, but Alicia calls Will just another person that she's outlived, stating that so many people had to die so she could live.

Strand realizes that this is about Alicia's mother, but Alicia clarifies that it's about doing something good with the lives Madison sacrificed herself for. Strand sadly apologizes to Alicia for everything. She cocks her gun, but Strand, thinking that she's about to kill him, tells her not to do it, as he deserves everything that she'll do to him if she turns. Her voice breaking, Alicia admits that it's for herself, not Strand. She prepares to commit suicide, and she has a series of flashbacks of her friends and family, including Charlie, Nick, Luciana, Daniel, Will, Morgan, and Madison.

Seeing the bird flying through the room, Alicia tries to make it leave. Alicia suggests that this might be the last thing that she was meant to do, and she breaks a window with the girl's help, releasing the bird. Alicia thanks the girl and asks why she came back, and the girl finally unmasks herself, telling a confused Alicia that she can't leave her. Alicia finally realizes who the girl is: herself as a young girl. Alicia asks why the little girl brought her here, and the girl tells Alicia that she knows why, and it's on the tape. Alicia looks at the tape of Madison's interview with Al.

In a flashback, Madison tells Al in her interview that "there are certain things you always remember about your kids. My daughter -- she just decided that bird was gonna live. She lived because my kids didn't give up on her. She gave her a chance when no one else would. There's not a whole lot of that left anymore. But that light -- it's gettin' fainter every day we're out here."

In the present, the little girl tells Alicia that Madison died so that the part of her that didn't give up on people would live. Alicia has been hallucinating her younger, more innocent self, who has been guiding Alicia in trying to save herself. While Alicia believes that she's going to die, the girl tells Alicia that she won't if people remember this part of her and Alicia realizes that she has to do that by saving Strand.

As everyone gets the rafts ready for departure, a deeply concerned Luciana looks towards the burning Tower, worrying about Alicia. June orders everyone not to leave anything behind as they don't know how long they're going to be out there. Charlie looks around worriedly as Daniel comforts her and Josiah throws his stuff into a raft. June tells Luciana that they're ready and they can't miss the tide, reassuring Luciana that Alicia will catch up, but they can't be here when the radioactive walkers burn. Luciana reluctantly orders everyone into the rafts, before a weak Alicia suddenly radios in, asking for help. She reveals that they're in the SWAT van, but they need help getting the rest of the way there and Luciana promises to meet them there. Alicia admits that she found the little girl, but she found someone else too.

Strand tells Alicia that the others will never take him with them, but Alicia is sure that they will if she asks them to. Strand asks Alicia why she saved him after everything that he's done, before remembering with a laugh that he'd asked Madison the same question once and she had told him that she did it because she knew who he was. However, he doesn't think that Madison really knew who he was, not like Alicia does. She tells Strand that she wants him to do what she couldn't. While she isn't sure that he can do it, she thinks that he'll try.

Alicia passes out again and she wakes up in a raft on the beach. June tells Alicia not to move, because the fever's still rising. They will try to make the raft as comfortable as they can. Grace reports that they need to move now, as radiation readings are spiking and the walkers must've breached the fence. Alicia asks Grace if she's heard from Morgan. Grace reveals that the current took him in a different direction, but he cleared the radiation. Alicia asks Grace to give Morgan a message for her, but Grace hands Alicia a radio and tells her that she can tell him herself and he wanted to talk to Alicia too.

Alicia contacts Morgan, still floating on the ocean in his life raft and holding Mo, and apologizes to him for not doing what she said with the Tower. He replies that she got everybody onto the rafts, which is what matters. He also thinks that Alicia might be right: he's been hearing some chatter on the radio that might be PADRE. He thinks that PADRE is real and that they might actually have some place to go to. Concerned, he asks her how she's feeling. She says that, no matter what happens to her, he needs to know that he won't be doing this alone. Morgan states that he won't be doing this alone because she's going to be alright, but he loses contact with her. Grace promises Alicia that, if Morgan didn't hear her response, she'll make sure that he knows.

As the raft that she's on is dragged by, Charlie calls for it to stop and approaches Alicia, who apologizes that she wasn't able to stop this from happening to her. Charlie is sorry that she wasn't there for Alicia either. Alicia tells the dying girl that Daniel's going to look after her, and Charlie says that it's okay, because she finally got to do something that she never thought that she would and they finally got to see a beach. Daniel calls Charlie back to the raft and tells Alicia that he wasn't there for Ofelia at the end, but he will be there for Charlie. He tells Alicia that he will see her again and leaves before Sherry thanks Alicia for taking her and Dwight in like she did as they might not have made it this far without her. Luciana tells Alicia that, if she didn't have to look after everyone else, she would be in the raft with her, but Alicia tells her that it's too dangerous and she has to do this alone.

Suddenly, Strand joins Alicia and tells her that she won't have to do it alone. Strand jokes that while the raft might not be The Abigail, they can rough it out together. Against Strand's protests, she climbs out of the raft, saying she doesn't know much longer she has left or how fast she'll turn. While Strand is willing to take that chance, she isn't. It's now up to him to make sure that everything they've been through means something. Alicia pushes Strand's raft into the water and tells her old friend that she didn't just save him so that he could do what she couldn't. She did it because she loves him too. She watches as the rafts leave, sharing a final wave with Strand. Falling to her knees as the rafts move out of sight, Alicia grabs her gun, but she passes out again before she can use it.

Alicia wakes up to the bird flying overhead and landing next to her, the rafts gone. Much to Alicia's shock, she's not only still alive, but her fever is broken -- Alicia has somehow beaten her walker bite infection and survived. Looking at the smoke plume from the Tower, Alicia checks a Geiger counter before the little girl approaches her again. The little girl shows Alicia that the bite mark is gone from her, which the girl thinks means that Alicia saved her. Alicia feels like herself again after a long time. Grabbing her belongings, Alicia declares that she's going to spend whatever time she have left helping the people who might have heard her message. A walker approaches and, no longer needing to save her bullet, Alicia shoots it, before donning her gas mask and heading towards the Tower.
