The survivors have been hunted by baddies before, but what exactly makes Alpha and Beta so villainous?

The Walking Dead Episode 2 begins to unravel the mystery of these two monsters.

In a new video, Samantha Morton, Ryan Hurst, Angela Kang and more bring us up to speed, breaking down the mystery further and delving into Whisperers’ leaders in shocking detail.

Go Inside Alpha and Beta’s Grotesque Bond:

“From Alpha’s point of view, she’s not the villain – she’s the hero of her own story,” says Showrunner Angela Kang.

She also knows exactly what makes Beta tick.

“The first time Alpha met this man, she just sensed immediately, that he was just afraid,” adds Samantha Morton.

As for Beta, “He is a terrifying figure who is gigantic, carrying a machete,” says Kang, but “He respects the fact that she’s [Alpha] not afraid of him.”

Their bond is instant and unique.

“I think it’s almost like falling in love… but not as we know it,” says Morton.
