Ever since mysterious black helicopters appeared on The Walking Dead and Feared the Walking Dead, fans of the franchise have wondered what they could mean. World Beyond said it was part of the Political Democracy Army. In the beginning, the CRM details were tough to find, but it was clear that the team was terrible. As the series progressed, it slowly revealed more information about the group of cloaks and daggers, and in “Blood and Lies,” World Beyond finally told some details behind CRM’s miserable intrigue.
Last week’s episode included Iris, Hope, Felix, Percy, and Leo. She chose to stay at the CRM research center instead of leaving. Their reason: Huck stole documents that could prove that CRM deliberately destroyed Omaha. To decrypt the messages, they stayed around to find out what was going on, and that was good. At the end of “Blood and Lies,” they discovered the ultimate goal of CRM.
As part of a covert investigation last week, Felix and Huck broke into a secret lab. They stole a vial of something, but CRM found the missing vial. Lila tried to say that she had just seduced him, but Judis knew she was lying. Judith thus also examined Leo and appointed Huck as an investigator. Huck tried to follow the line as a double agent, questioned Leo, and only stopped when Laila showed up with the missing vial.
She claimed her father’s life was at stake, and she had suggested that Iris and Hope reveal all of CRM’s secrets if they had to give up the vial. They accepted, and then Laila went out to “save” Leo. Unfortunately, however, he hesitated in hopes of convincing Jadis that Leo would be helpful in his experiments. Jadis agreed but later released a test person who killed Lyla, leaving Leo as the lead scientist in the CRM project.
What Lyla told Iris and Hope as part of their agreement was necessary. He admitted that the MRC killed everyone in Omaha and on campus as part of a Project Votes lawsuit. The initiative was to kill people with a combination of chlorine gas and a chemical extract of algae. The mixture should increase the time until recovery. The ultimate goal was to completely stop revitalization and save humanity. Still, it required small steps and a large number of attempts. Lyla hated what she did, but CRM gave her no choice.
At the end of the episode, Jadis informs Huck about all the details of the Votes project. They were disappointed to learn that what happened in Omaha did not have to be an isolated event. When asked, Huck told Percy everything, and Percy shared it with the rest of the team. It turned out that CRM in Portland was already planning to do the same.
CRM has never planned a long-term alliance. She was committed and determined to save the world, which meant no other society could stand up to her resources or reputation. Therefore, “Alliance of Three” was only a means for CRM to identify its biggest competitors.
To see if Iris, Hope, and their team can warn Portland, hit The Walking Dead: World Beyond. The series is broadcast on Sundays at 22.00. ET / PT on AMC and can be published in advance on AMC +.
