Why M.K. Chooses to Stay With Pilgrim — Inside Episode 5

In the latest episode, M.K. is brought to Pilgrim‘s fortress after Nix rescues him.

“When he first sees M.K., he knows he’s a dark one,” says Babou Ceesay, “but he doesn’t know that M.K. is linked to Azra. It’s a real discovery for myself and Cressida. We go, ‘Wow, so this Badlands has people in it that are also looking for what we’re looking for.”

Unlike the Widow, who kept M.K. a prisoner, Pilgrim lets M.K. stay or leave as he chooses. “That’s where the trust in Pilgrim is built because M.K.’s very used to people telling him things that don’t come true,” says Aramis Knight.

Plus, the cast and the creators go deeper into why the Widow must rethink her trust in people, and why Sunny has no choice but to trust the Mad Witch.
