[WARNING: The following contains MAJOR spoilers for AMC’s The Walking Dead: World Beyond Season 2, Episode 6, “Who Are You?”]
Almost nothing like a very good ol’ blackout to get a tale rolling… properly, form of. Although tonight’s installment “Who Are You?” isn’t very as extreme as past 7 days’s virtually-escape from the Civic Republic Military services campus, it does glow a minor light-weight (ha!) on how the CRM took down Omaha and the Campus Colony — and who was likely included with that unpleasantness. In addition, we get a minor additional details on how Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) is linked to every thing, and 1 character can make a selection to sneak into the CRM with disastrous benefits.
We all know that Lyla (Natalie Gold) is suspicious as heck, but Leo (Joe Holt), up right up until this level, has experienced no motive to imagine so. That modifications in this episode, as he connects the papers that Huck (Annet Mahendru) gave him to papers Lyla was at the time carrying that reference a “Project V.” To establish regardless of whether he’s been courting a mad scientist this complete time, he has a meal celebration with her beneath the guise of getting her fulfill his daughters. That ruse, in concept, will enable Felix (Nico Tortorella) to sneak into her lab, with Huck’s enable.
Apart from… trying to keep her murder serum in her lab would be a rookie oversight, and Lyla’s no rookie. Huck and Felix master she’s trying to keep the tremendous-key things in chilly storage. They can’t entry the space with no reducing the energy to the complete facility, so that’s what Huck does: But just before she goes, she warns Felix he’ll only have two minutes within. She succeeds in reducing the energy, and Felix heads in he discovers that there are gallons and gallons of the weapon, and he grabs a vial (wager Lyla received’t recognize that’s lacking, proper?). He has a near simply call when the energy kicks on and he’s locked within, and he commences to be concerned that Huck deserted him — but she will come again for him, and he survives the frigid ordeal.
At the meal celebration, factors go (predictably) poorly. Hope (Alexa Mansour), getting appear all around on the CRM, is well mannered and form to Lyla — Iris (Aliyah Royale), on the other hand, forces her to confess that component of her pharmaceutical occupation in the pre-apocalypse globe was screening on mice, and she receives angrier and angrier to the level in which she storms absent. Hope follows her and attempts to relaxed her sister down, but it’s apparent Iris will not be bought on any component of the CRM or what they’re performing.
The energy goes out, and Lyla can take Leo out to a distant place of the campus, expressing she hadn’t been 𠇌ompletely trustworthy” with him. At to start with, it’s unclear regardless of whether she’s getting him out there to chat to him or to eliminate him, but in the conclude, it’s the previous although she doesn’t expose the aspects of “Project V,” she does explain to him about what occurred to her household. It’s a unfortunate tale (and at this level, aren’t they all unfortunate backstories on TWD exhibits?). Her daughter was bitten, and her partner stayed with the boy or girl 1 night time to ease and comfort her once more, predictably, this finishes with the daughter turning and killing him. Lyla panics and locks them both of those in the space, not able to eliminate them… and that’s in which factors get, uh, strange. She doesn’t go into particulars, but she tells Leo that she did “terrible” factors to their zombified selves to consider to convey them again to daily life. So probably it’s not way too considerably-fetched that she𠆝 be included in the CRM’s walker-generation/genocide?
Previously in the episode, Iris despatched a transmission to the colony in which Elton (Nicolas Cantu) and Will (Jelani Alladin) are. She was only intended to say that absolutely everyone’s wonderful but they’re delayed, but she went a minor rogue and stated they’re likely to 𠇋urn the put to the floor.” That was not properly-been given by the management of the colony, which attempts to simply call for a Phantom-Menace-model “vote of no self-confidence” in Indira’s management, but she evidently retains on to regulate.
Will, on the other hand, is finished ready. He’s decided to get within the CRM foundation, and Indira’s son — who has experienced probably 10 strains up right up until this level — goes with him (the bad dude could as properly be carrying a purple shirt). You now know in which this is likely: Will attempts to sneak in, the troopers are ready, Indira’s son receives shot in the facial area, Will operates absent.
On the Jadis entrance, we master that Huck was evidently her mentor in the CRM, so the two are very good buddies. (We get what could be a tangential Rick (Andrew Lincoln) point out when Jadis states she gave the murky team “something they desired,” but that’s it.) It’s not apparent, on the other hand, regardless of whether Jadis is definitely on Huck’s facet she commonly admits that her mom desired her to retain an eye on Huck although she was absent, but she appears to be additional involved with aiding Huck demonstrate that she’s nevertheless a very good soldier than digging up dust on her. But there’s a lot of dust on Huck that has nevertheless to be dug, so… regardless of whether from Jadis or Percy (Ted Sutherland), who’s nevertheless muttering ominous factors to Iris about his “life’s mission,” it appears to be very likely she’s in grave threat.
