Thanks to new Amazon Prime spin-off World Beyond – which is more of a coming of age drama with teens raised during the apocalypse – we now know more about the group who rescued Andrew Lincoln’s character with a helicopter in season nine episode What Comes After.
However, it’s safe to say they have some questionable morals and tactics, with getting more information on their motives, and how they operate.
In The Tyger and the Lamb – the second episode in the new series – viewers learned more about the Civic Republic, which is one of a trio of communities making up the Alliance of the Three.
The group are meant to be developing a cure for the zombie plague, but their tactics leave something to be desired.
Their military force has slaughtered around 10,000 people inside Nebraska’s Campus Colony, which was previously home to Hope (Alexa Mansour) and Iris (Aliyah Royale), as well as their friends Silas (Hal Cumpston) and Elton (Nicolas Cantu).
Viewers saw the mauling in the World Beyond premiere, and scenes in the episode saw Civic Republic Military (CRM) solider Barca, who is played by Al Calderon.
Although the party line is that the organisation ‘neutralised a threat’, he showed some remorse over the incident.
Meanwhile, the CRM’s lieutenant colonel – Julia Ormond’s character Elizabeth Kublek – defended the tactics while pointing to the civilised culture they have developed, including a legal system, clean water, medical facilities, energy, education and agriculture.
She said: ‘We are the last light of the world. We are the last hope. And we, us, we enable this population of over 200,000 souls to live, to create the future.’
Meanwhile, she also argued that the Campus Colony might not have seemed ‘like a threat’, but ‘they were going to be’.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is available now to stream via Amazon Prime.
