Wow new group turns out to be evil.
Totally didn’t see that coming.
Never seem to get a break, do they?
Kirkman needs to step up his game with twists
I think the point is that the “evil” here is very much only evil to certain people. You clearly see the hero group split over the way the commonwealth is structured. And given that it’s also the same system America currently runs under, it serves as a closer commentary on our own society. If you think America is evil, you probably think the commonwealth is evil. If you don’t believe America is evil, your perspective on the commonwealth might be a bit more nuanced.
