Everything’s coming to a boiling point in the Commonwealth. For all the details that led to it, check out this week’s The Walking Dead: Things To Note!
The spark of revolution has been lit in the Commonwealth, and Governor Pamela Milton doesn’t even know it. First, not only is her hold on Alexandria (Formerly known as “Outpost 22”) lost, but the prisoners seem to have converted several Commonwealth troopers to their cause, which not only means that she’s lost soldiers (And could, potentially, lose more) but also, that the rebels are now armed.
Secondly, Eugene Porter, who was supposed to be her scapegoat, and whose show trial and execution were meant to be the bucket of cold mud on the embers of discontent smoldering in her community, instead served as a platform to throw her leadership into question and paint Eugene as an innocent man being railroaded by a corrupt system. The planned execution, meanwhile, never even happened, as he was covertly freed by Mercer and several Commonwealth troopers, meaning that, now, a potential rebellion has both an inspiration in Eugene, and a much-needed popular figurehead in Mercer, who can also rally many of the soldiers loyal to him to the cause.
All of these, again, are things that Pamela is not even aware of.
These, of course, weren’t the only things going on in last week’s episode: There were a bunch of hints, clues, references, and little details that could easily be missed, forgotten, or overlooked. Since I don’t want you to be unaware, I’ve taken the liberty of gathering all these bits of information together in one place, so you don’t have to go looking.
Are you ready? It’s time for this week’s installment of The Walking Dead: Things To Note!
