Episode 9 of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead saw a revelation of Madison Clark being of Southern descent. So, could she possibly be related to one of the characters from The Walking Dead?

Spoiler alert: This article discusses Episode 9 of Season 2 AMC's Fear The Walking Dead as well as its companion program, The Walking Dead. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.

Episode 9 of Fear the Walking Dead saw Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) and Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) sit down for a well-earned drink. In the process, Madison's heritage was revealed. It turns out, while Fear the Walking Dead opened with her living in L.A., she is actually from Alabama. And where is Alabama? it is in roughly the same location (albeit a three-hour drive from each other) as where the characters in Fear's companion show, The Walking Dead are from.

This is not the first time Madison's roots have come up in Fear the Walking Dead, although it is the first time it has been discussed in the show, between characters. During Talking Dead after the Season 1 finale of Fear the Walking Dead, Madison's accent was discussed by Chris Hardwick and Fear's showrunner, Dave Erickson.

"It's an interesting element of her character… we haven't said where Madison's from yet… I'm surprised no one has commented on that yet, and that's the shocking thing to me," Erickson originally said during Talking Dead.

Hardwick went on to suggest Madison could be related to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in The Walking Dead.

"We should go to Atlanta, see my brother, Rick Grimes," Chris Hardwick joked as a way for the crossover between the two shows to be broached in Fear the Walking Dead.

Potentially, though, Madison could be related to anyone on The Walking Dead. Who would you like to see her related to? Let us know your thoughts and theories by commenting below.

Season 2 of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead returns Sunday, September 4, with Episode 10 (entitled "Do Not Disturb") at 9 p.m. ET.

The official synopsis for Episode 10 of Fear the Walking Dead is below.

"Travis struggles to connect with Chris while searching for shelter. Meanwhile, Alicia meets a lonely woman with a bloody past."
