Fans were not sure what to expect when Jeremiah and Madison met. After all, she did stab Troy’s eye with a spoon. Despite that, Jeremiah admires Madison. The actor explained that he sees Madison as a spunky lady and wonders how she has survived this long in the apocalypse. As for Troy’s eye, Jeremiah thinks that his son must have done something to deserve it. However, the respect Jeremiah has for Madison might not last. Callie said that he respects Madison, “at least in the beginning.” That seems to imply that the two might butt heads later on.

At one point, Jeremiah says he is planning on building something better than before. What exactly did he mean by that statement? Dayton Callie explained that he wants to build a better world. Right now, everything is pure chaos and he wants to eliminate it. Even though he does have good intentions, the actor also teased that Jeremiah plans on building a one-man army. On AMC’s official website, a character bio for Jeremiah was listed, which should give fans clues on what to expect from this individual.
“A patriotic border militiaman that railed against the region’s cartel violence and illegal immigration, Otto patrolled his cattle ranch and linked with other like-minded men and organizations throughout the Southwest. He built a network, became a leader, and planned contingencies for the inevitable fall of the American empire — not just a simple survival strategy but a DIY guide for resurrecting society. Otto always expected the fall of democracy – he didn’t plan on the rise of the Dead. Either way, there’s an opportunity to rebuild. The people of Broke Jaw Ranch are ready; tracks have been laid. Does this new society in the making offer Madison’s family hope?”
