The Kingdom’s fair was supposed to be a chance to rebuild the communities and strengthen the bonds between the survivors.
But Lydia’s betrayal of the Whisperers sparked Alpha towards a cruel revenge that marred the festivities.
“It really impacts Alpha. We see that she has a vulnerability when it comes to her daughter,” says Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd in a new behind-the-scenes video.
Alpha still chooses to spare Lydia for rejecting her.
But not everyone gets off so lucky.
“Whatever ruthlessness and brutality we’ve seen before… there’s much more coming on the heels of that betrayal,” adds Gale.
Alpha has to make the separation between her people and the survivors very clear now.
This time, they won’t ever forget.
