Nothing like a good ol’ blackout to obtain a story rolling… well, kind of. While tonight’s installment “Who Are You?” isn’t fairly as intense as last week’s almost-escape from the Civic Republic Military campus, it does shine a little light (ha!) on exactly how the CRM took down Omaha and also the Campus Colony — and also who was most likely involved through that unpleasantness. Plus, we gain a small even more information on exactly how Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) is associated to every little thing, and one character makes a decision to sneak into the CRM with terrible results.

We all recognize that Lyla (Natalie Gold) is suspicious as heck, however Leo (Joe Holt), up till this point, has had no reason to think so. That transforms in this episode, as he connects the documents that Huck (Annet Mahendru) offered him to documents Lyla was when transporting that referral a “Project V.” To determine whether he’s been dating a mad scientist this totality time, he has actually a dinner party with her under the guise of having her accomplish his daughters. That rusage, in concept, will certainly permit Felix (Nico Tortorella) to sneak right into her lab, via Huck’s help.

Except… maintaining her murder serum in her lab would certainly be a rookie mistake, and Lyla’s no rookie. Huck and Felix learn she’s keeping the super-secret stuff in cold storage. They can’t accessibility the room without cutting the power to the totality facility, so that’s what Huck does: But prior to she goes, she warns Felix he’ll just have actually 2 minutes inside. She succeeds in cutting the power, and also Felix heads in; he discovers that tbelow are gallons and gallons of the weapon, and he grabs a vial (bet Lyla won’t notice that’s absent, right?). He has actually a close contact as soon as the power kicks on and he’s locked inside, and also he starts to problem that Huck abandoned him — but she comes back for him, and also he survives the frigid ordeal.

At the dinner party, things go (predictably) badly. Hope (Alexa Mansour), having come about on the CRM, is polite and also kind to Lyla — Iris (Aliyah Royale), on the other hand also, forces her to admit that part of her pharmaceutical project in the pre-apocalypse people was testing on mice, and she gets angrier and also angrier to the suggest wright here she storms away. Hope follows her and tries to calm her sister down, however it’s clear Iris will not be offered on any kind of part of the CRM or what they’re doing.

The power goes out, and also Lyla takes Leo out to a remote area of the campus, saying she hadn’t been “totally honest” via him. At first, it’s unclear whether she’s taking him out there to talk to him or to kill him, however in the finish, it’s the former; while she doesn’t disclose the details of “Project V,” she does tell him around what happened to her family members. It’s a sad story (and at this suggest, aren’t they all sad backstories on TWD shows?). Her daughter was bitten, and her husband also stayed through the son one night to comfort her; aget, predictably, this ends via the daughter turning and also killing him. Lyla panics and also locks them both in the room, unable to kill them… and that’s where points obtain, uh, weird. She doesn’t go into specifics, however she tells Leo that she did “terrible” points to their zombified selves to attempt to carry them earlier to life. So maybe it’s not as well far-fetched that she’d be affiliated in the CRM’s walker-creation/genocide?

Earlier in the episode, Iris sent out a transmission to the nest where Elton (Nicolas Cantu) and Will (Jelani Alladin) are. She was only supposed to say that everyone’s fine but they’re delayed, but she went a little rogue and sassist they’re going to “burn the location to the ground.” That was not well-obtained by the leadership of the swarm, which tries to contact for a Phantom-Menace-style “vote of no confidence” in Indira’s leadership, however she supposedly holds onto regulate.

Will, yet, is done waiting. He’s identified to get inside the CRM base, and also Indira’s child — who has had maybe ten lines up till this point — goes with him (the bad guy could too be wearing a red shirt). You currently know wbelow this is going: Will tries to sneak in, the soldiers are waiting, Indira’s son gets shot in the face, Will runs ameans.

On the Jadis front, we learn that Huck was reportedly her mentor in the CRM, so the two are good buddies. (We obtain what can be a tangential Rick (Andrew Lincoln) cite once Jadis states she gave the murky team “something they wanted,” yet that’s it.) It’s not clear, but, whether Jadis is really on Huck’s side; she conveniently admits that her mother wanted her to save an eye on Huck while she was away, yet she appears even more came to with helping Huck prove that she’s still a great soldier than digging up dirt on her. But there’s plenty of dirt on Huck that has actually yet to be dug, so… whether from Jadis or Percy (Ted Sutherland), who’s still muttering ominous things to Iris around his “life’s mission,” it appears most likely she’s in grave risk.
