Margot Bingham portrays a character named Max in The Walking Dead series. She had a very confusing introduction as she presented herself as Stephanie in her initial introduction to Eugene (Josh McDermitt) via radio. After the confusion was cleared, Eugene finally found his happily ever after with Max, at least it appeared to be.
As things progress towards the final episode of The Walking Dead that will air on November 20, many characters have lots of things that need to be cleared up. One interesting storyline will be that of Max. She has worked as the executive assistant of Governor Milton (Laila Robins) for who knows how long but recently has begun to rebel in light of Sebastian’s heist attempt. Her situation becomes more complex as her brother, Mercer (Michael James Shaw), is the leader of the Commonwealth Military. Althought, he, too, is beginning to see the light of the corruption within the community.
Max is an intelligent woman who is a bit on the nerdy side, preferring science and engineering. This is a perfect fit for a companion for Eugene, and the pair bonded over comets and his novel. Showrunner Angela Kang stated that their relationship is solid, but things will get “funky” for them in the final episodes.
The Walking Dead – Max
Max first becomes aware that things aren’t all they seem to be when she was held hostage by Tyler Davis (Cameron Roberts), a Commonwealth soldier. He accuses Governor Milton of only caring for the upper class while the lower ones suffer. He whispers to Max, “I’m like you.”
When she learned of Sebastian’s plan of a heist, she knew she had to take action. She aided Connie (Lauren Ridloff) and her crew in outing Sebastian to the community with a rogue publication revealing his crimes.
What will this mean for Max going forward? The Milton’s don’t appear to be beyond killing someone for wronging them. They have always been a powerful political family, even more so in an apocalypse where laws and rules aren’t much different than before the outbreak.
