So we've had a few days to process how the previous episode of AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond wrapped with the disturbing end-credits scene- and we've come to appreciate it even more. After an episode filled with "personal bonding and growth," hitting viewers with a look down the road at what's waiting for them was a nicely executed juxtaposition. Along with calling into serious question whether or not Iris (Aliyah Royale) and Hope's (Alexa Mansour) father Dr. Leo Bennett (Joe Holt) is still alive, but there's some sad, twisted irony watching Huck (Annet Mahendru) and Felix (Nico Tortorella) tell our young survivors that they're not ready for what's out there then they clearly have no idea themselves. As for the experiments going on? Yeah, our concerns for Rick Grimes's safety has increased ten-fold…
Here's a look back at the previously-released sneak preview for the next episode "Madman Across the Water," with Huck pitching a "Plan B" to Felix that comes across very "divide and conquer"- even Felix seems a little thrown by Huck's proposal. Following that, we have a look at the episode overview followed by the promo that also finds Elton's (Nicolas Cantu) loyalties tested, and Hope realizing that not everyone's as supportive of their mission to find Iris and Hope's father as she first thought.
