Next Time On… The Walking Dead season 11, episode 12, “The Lucky Ones”
The latest episode of The Walking Dead changed things up a little in terms of genre and tone, getting into the weeds of Eugene’s investigation into the Commonwealth after Stephanie’s sudden disappearance. It was a mixed bag of effectiveness, but a fun deviation, and it also solidified the Commonwealth as an actual threat with ulterior motives that everyone should be worried about. All of this should surely be fleshed out more in The Walking Dead season 11, episode 12, but in the meantime here’s a quote from the latest recap:
But it’s hard to fault an episode for attempting something genuinely different, especially this late in its run, and it actually takes the important step of establishing outright that the Commonwealth has some sneaky hidden agenda. I mean, it was obvious to anyone who has ever seen an episode of television in their lives before, much less anyone familiar with The Walking Dead’s source material, but still. Exposing that “Stephanie” was simply a plant designed to lure Eugene and co. into the community while also exposing the location of Alexandria immediately gives Stephanie an air of calculated menace. But the last-second appearance of out-of-character Stephanie, Pamela Milton’s assistant Madison, ties into a recurring theme of her showing up and getting more involved in situations than a simple PA necessarily should. Remember that old theory that Madison was really the head honcho and Milton herself was a stooge? Well, it seems a lot more credible that Madison is an insider in the Commonwealth’s government, and in exposing the conspiracy Eugene has also found an ally.
