On this week’s episode of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, titled “Foothold”, we get a jaw-dropping quantity of data on the secretive group the Civic Republic Navy (CRM) and their final objectives. And spoilers past this level, nevertheless it positive looks as if they’re aiming to develop a zombie remedy.
Within the hour, Hope (Alexa Mansour) will get a tour of the CRM facility due to her father’s girlfriend Lyla (Natalie Gold). Whereas there, she learns that she’s been recruited right into a many years lengthy push to determine the roots of the zombie plague, and doubtlessly reverse it. However for these pondering that World Past‘s second (and closing) season will finish with zombies being worn out perpetually… Suppose once more.
“Science strikes little discoveries at a time,” World Beyond showrunner Matt Negrete informed Decider. “It’s not out of the blue like, growth, we found out the remedy, and we’re all cured now, everybody simply takes the serum. There’s a number of steps between having just a little breakthrough which will result in one thing and at last getting that second of, wow, now we have a remedy. And so, the expectations that our scientists have on this present is that it’s going to be a multi-generational factor.”
That multi-generational course of is why CRM recruited Hope within the first place with a sophisticated plan that led to actually a whole lot of deaths and the destruction of two communities. But when Hope is essential to stopping the zombie apocalypse, that could possibly be price it, proper? Properly, that’s if CRM — and Lyla — will be trusted… Which they’ll’t.
“Lyla is somebody who tells the reality when she seems like she will,” Negrete continued. “And she or he tells the reality when it fits her functions. I feel we will take a number of what she’s saying at face worth. It’s simply potential that she’s most likely not giving Hope all of the information, simply a few of them. And she or he’s displaying her perhaps a peek behind the scenes, however not giving her a full look. So I’ll say that a lot.”
Provided that Lyla is on the lookout for extra topics to experiment on by the top of the episode, chances are high that Hope might have gotten into greater than she bargained for; and the top of zombies maybe isn’t the one factor CRM is working in direction of. What it’s they actually need, we’ll simply have to remain tuned to search out out.
