The Walking Dead … goes to several places here in the final season. Half of the show adapted the end of Robert Kirkman’s book to the Commonwealth Ark, while the other half invented a new plot line from scratch. Maggie reunited with them. They are horrifying, masked murderers, and for the first time this week we finally learned who they really are.
The big exposure of the episode was that Darryl’s old flame rear was actually one of them. It turns out that she wasn’t adopted by the group, was always away from them, and somehow separated. She left because they found her again.
Given their tactics, as I thought so, the group is a group of former soldiers. They talk about serving in Afghanistan together, but eventually became the favorite villain’s choice for PMCs, private military companies, and television shows. Because even fiction doesn’t really want to portray US military members as bad guys. , Lots of time. That is, they are “mercs”.
But they are not just ordinary merchants, but essentially a cult of hardcore Christian merchants who believe that God baptized them with fire and commanded them to survive. And given our current political situation, I don’t think this is … a complete accident.
The Walking Dead is generally less political, except that it is sometimes progressive in portraying same-sex couples, or doing cool things such as making Michonne a concern for Rick’s love for Andrea in comics. It’s not a show. But here there is a double commentary between this and the federal story.
The federal story invented a society in which Robert Kirkman chased the rich and powerful, the wealthy people from before the apocalypse remained rich, and the society was organized by the work that everyone had before. The way. This doesn’t work for most of Rick’s group, and eventually a revolution is underway.
But here, The Walking Dead seems to point to a more direct issue with the divine militia here. The first thing I thought of was Proud Boys, but the group hasn’t seen white supremacy yet, and they have black members (and women!). But it’s also very easy to see an army of mercenaries in tactical equipment and believe that they are doing the work of the Lord and imagine that this idea did not just emerge from the sky. it’s simple.
I think that’s all, the Walking Dead finds it interesting to go there, and it’s essentially twice at a time in the federal storyline very Political, jumped out of the manga and went a little above. But let’s see how it is handled on the screen. I don’t think the reaper is too long as Darryl infiltrated them. These bad guys really have to stop trusting Darryl already, this is like the third time this has happened.
