With AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond heading into the sixth episode of its two-season limited series run, here's a couple of quick observations about the newest spinoff series.

Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves, and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek.
