On this week’s “Into the Badlands,” we learn exactly why Tilda (Ally Ioannides) is loyal to The Widow (Emily Beecham).
In an exclusive clip from the episode obtained by TheWrap, Tilda questions The Widow’s decision to instigate a war against Quinn (Marton Csokas). That’s when The Widow reveals Tilda’s dark past.
The Widow laments that Tilda used to always make her breakfast and greet her with a smile. “Do you remember what happened to that girl, Tilda? What my husband did to her?” she asks. That’s when The Widow promised Tilda that she would teach her how to fight and survive in the Badlands.
“You are strong,” she says. “Stronger than any man who would ever try and hurt you. We are fighting for a world where girls don’t get dragged into dark rooms and have their innocence torn from them. But that world comes at a price.”
The next episode of “Into the Badlands” premieres Dec. 6 at 10 p.m./9c on AMC.
