#Jadis says, "It's about life, doctor," two episodes ago, but her semi-quoting #ThomasMann to him early on in the episode (all that's out there is "Death and the dead") is all we need to know, narratively, the seat from which all their motivations derive: Fear. Our protagonists show, in action, all the ways in which Thomas Mann "Wakes up": by living life as if death doesn't exist.
So not much pre/post show to speak of, since we recorded both #FearTWD and #WorldBeyond on the same day, but we did edit out chunks and chunks of footage in between for various reasons. Support the #podcast and get the episode that God/Nature/Science intended:

  • We went into a rant about the quote from whence the episode title's namesake is derived:
  • Huck is finally releasing all the emotions she's pent up inside. Parallels of what she felt she finally had to do against her brothers in the Marines (the right thing) and her driving away in the jeep in the series premiere.
  • Sherrandy is the M.V.P.: Jadis is allowing nepotism (Mason Beale being held hostage) to halt the Civic Republic Military's agenda (which shows their hypocrisy, considering Elizabeth Kublek and Jennifer Mallick and even Sergeant Barca). Although, from our point of view, do you blame Warrant Officer Stokes from hiding this from Major General Beale?
  • In the aftermath, even though Project Votus was used as a smokescreen for genocide, they still believe in it. Jadis turns into the monster (Simon, of The Saviors) because MGB wants all the scientists back alive.
  • Clear parallels between the state of The Walking Dead communities in episodes 1-5 of Season 9 to The Alliance of the Three: How The Sanctuary was a drain on Maggie Rhee and The Hilltop's resources. The Walking Dead: World Beyond is also somewhat an echo of Carl Grimes' vision of the future.
  • Mason's actions near the end (leading to Percy's death), in spite of hearing The CRM's deceptions from Jadis' own lips. Dave struggles, while the ladies appeal to the rationale that even he has in his own notes. He's a good person, but maybe what was said is a seed in Mason's mind that might sprout later on?
  • CGI Empties in this episode plus Elton Ortiz and Silas Plaskett hamster balling it in Perimeter Colony's globe art for the Civic Republic Research Facility were kind of necessarily hilarious and light-hearted.
  • Iris Bennett's decision to stop Hope Bennett from killing Mason (even though The CRM took Iris' future, twiceCampus Colony and Percy Delmado). Drawing yet another line from Iris to Rick Grimes - and even Michonne to Virgil
  • I think we'd all be pissed if Dennis('s abs don't save him and he) dies. Annet Mahendru is the M.V.P.  Dave works out why actual prayer isn't implemented in this extremely emotional scene.
  • The premise if the show: the reason why the CRM executioners cull Campus Colony, Omaha, and is moving to genocide Portland. Rachael brings back our theory that, without loud sounds or bright fire, dead columns/walker herds are drawn to massive communities of people.
  • The CRM might already know that The Civic Republic will try them for crimes against humanity for what the CRM thinks they have to do before they hand over control to the civilian government.
  • Logistically placing the whereabouts of both the kids and the scientists.
  • The weight of the scientists, even Terry Brooks Ellis, having to kill the soldiers with the B-Oh-4 Bombs.
  • Percy's demise.
  • Hope's (and our) reaction to having to kill Empty Lyla Belshaw. It's the moment that sets up her  threating actions towards Mason, near the end.
  • Dennis tells Silas to find his friends (after having told him not to at the start of the season). The interesting encounter between Silas and Webb.
  • Briefly revisiting Iris' reasons for stopping Hope from killing Mason. Dispelling the questions behind the capability of frozen empties and why, essentially, empties/walkers look the way they do so soon after reanimation.
  • Dennis takes his alcoholism very seriously (won't someone think of the abs?!). Silas is a friendly/traumatized drunk. Silas forgives Jennifer Mallick.
  • Delaying the inevitable: Thanking all of you for joining us, from start to finish, throughout TWD World Beyond's journey. Recording this episode is just inconveniencing Sherrandy from watching next week's episodes.
