During The Walking Dead season 10 episode “Stalker”, the survivor formerly known as Gamma found strength in herself after a confrontation. This newfound confidence can help the communities now and beyond.
There was a lot of chaos during The Walking Dead’s fast-paced episode “Stalker”, but the biggest moment of the episode was a tense standoff between Gamma and Beta. She showed swift leadership when she took control of the situation to prevent more bloodshed. Her newfound confidence will be critical when they fight the Whisperers and could be a game-changer beyond.
When Beta was ready to take Rosita out, Gamma kept her cool and strategically manipulated Beta to keep his focus on Alpha’s mission. She used his undying loyalty to Alpha’s agenda to neutralize him. This was the first time Beta truly showed a sign of weakness when in combat with people he considers the enemy.
This shows that Gamma is great at thinking on her toes, which is a critical quality that has been missing for the communities lately. By the time the leaders decide, it’s generally too late and they are either trapped or someone from the group gets hurt.
Having someone like Gamma can prevent tense moments of wasted time and motion. She is constantly moving and thinking ahead for what to do next even when it seems uncertain or it seems like she was winging it.
It brings high hope that she will be one of the people left standing after the war, she could easily become a crucial part of the communities. With such a steady hand and self-control even when there is danger, it can put the leaders at ease having such a strategist on their side.
She is one of the most important new survivors that the community has come across in a long time, and there’s still high hope that Gamma who will gradually be known as Mary on a full-time basis will be around to expand on her big self-discovery and become a vital element in The Walking Dead universe.
Stay tuned for more of The Walking Dead to see if Gamma, now simply known as Mary, will continue to progress forward with her newfound strength and how the communities will react only on AMC.
