The Walking Dead returned to AMC last Sunday, and things are getting real in the Commonwealth. Protesters in the streets, a massive horde advancing, and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has also arrived in the community.

In the midseason finale of season 11, several of our survivors made quick enemies of the Commonwealth, especially Deputy Governor Lance Hornsby (Josh Hamilton). He was shot in the face by Daryl (Norman Reedus), and that really set him off.

During episode 17, “Lockdown,” things picked up soon after the previous episode’s events.

The Walking Dead – Commonwealth

There is a map of the Commonwealth for sale at the Goldin Auction of Walking Dead props. Upon further inspection of this map, some interesting details about the community are revealed.

According to the legend, it is developed into eight different sections, including public space, estates, city planning, the military sector, lower ward and more. The legend also welcomes residents to the public sector, where they can shop and visit the historic Union Station. There is a caution that citizens need to be mindful of the sectors and zones and that no exit or entry beyond the walls is prohibited without authorization from the CW Military.

This map is set up like a brochure for new residents with a section describing all of the communities attributes. Residents committed to the Commonwealth are granted healthcare, food and water and protection provided by the CW Military.

One fact I found interesting is the brochure goes on to state that the walls have never been breached in Commonwealth history. According to the trailer for season 11c, this will change soon as we see a variant walker climbing the walls.

This is an excellent source of information about the Commonwealth that Kirsten Acuna of Insider discovered.
