The Walking Dead: World Beyond: Jennifer 'Huck' Mallick dies after stabbing during series finale


Staff Sergeant Jennifer ‘Huck’ Mallick died after being stabbed in the stomach during the series finale on Sunday of The Walking Dead: World Beyond on AMC.

Her death was not in vain, however, as Huck was able to detonate explosives that destroyed the Civic Republic Militia’s cache of toxic gas.

The season two episode titled The Last Light started with a flashback scene detailing what occurred on Monument Day two months earlier.

The Bennett sisters, Iris [Aliyah Royale ] and Hope [Alexa Mansour], met up with Elton Ortiz [Nicolas Cantu] and Silas Plaskett [Hal Cumpston] made a pact before they left the Campus colony to stick together.

They all promised each other before they set out to walk 1,100 miles to the Civic Republic Militia [CRM] headquarters to have each other’s backs until the end. Elton reminded them that Felix Carlucci [Nico Tortorella] told them to only engage with zombies as a last resort and then opened the door.

The show then shifted to the present day where Silas, Iris, Hope and Elton were battling a column of zombies like seasoned warriors.

‘We need to move faster,’ Iris said. ‘Everything is riding on this.’

Silas took a moment to tell Iris that he was sorry about what happened to Percy [Ted Sutherland], who was killed in the previous episode by a CRM soldier.

At the same time, CRM Warrant Officer Jadis Stokes [Pollyanna McIntosh] dispatched helicopters to look for the group that she had dubbed ‘insurgents’ along with the escaped scientists. She also sent out soldiers in vehicles to search an eight-mile radius.

Jadis also instructed the CRM soldiers to jam all communications until the insurgents were located. She said she expected to have everything wrapped up before they moved the toxic gas toward Portland.

Inside the nearby culling facility, Huck [Annet Mahendru], sat with her injured husband Dennis [Max Osinski], waiting for someone to bring him medication and antibiotics. Dennis told her while tending to his gunshot wound that there was still a chance that they could have a life together. Huck agreed and said after they blew up the CRM.

‘If anyone can do it, it’s us,’ Dennis said to Huck. ‘We take what we got and make it work.’

Out in the woods, Dr. Leo Bennett [ Joe Holt] and some of the scientists that escaped the CRM were waiting for Felix to show up to help them change the flat on their truck. Right after Felix appeared a CRM vehicle pulled up and Felix instructed everyone to hide.

CRM officer Lieutenant Frank Newton [Robert Palmer Watkins] called out for Dr. Bennett to come out ‘hands on heads’, but instead Felix and Leo opened fire.

Meanwhile, Elton, Silas, Hope and Iris arrived at the outpost warehouse in time to save Dennis and give him needed medications. They also brought with them detonators for the explosives.

Huck grabbed the detonators from their bag and told them their plan might work. She instructed them to meet up with the others and get to a minimum safe distance of three miles to avoid the fallout from when she blew up the CRM’s toxic gas supply.

Hope told Huck that she should come with them but Huck said that she needed to get the word out to the rest of the world about what the CRM had been doing.

‘Dennis and I are going to see to it,’ she said.

Hope said to make sure that they stay safe.

‘You too,’ said Huck. ‘For what it’s worth, I’m proud of you. You’re the future kid. Never forget that.’

Silas said he was also going to stay behind to help Huck and Dennis. Silas said his goodbye for the time being to Hope, Iris and Elton. Iris thanked him for saving her life and for ‘dancing with me when I wanted to dance.’

‘I was just following your lead the whole time, we all were,’ he said.

Jadis, who was running a command center from a tent, realized that the gas that they were going to use to eliminate Portland had been moved to the culling facility that Dennis had been overseeing. She asked a soldier to prepare her helicopter.

In the woods, Will Campbell [Jelani Alladin] appeared suddenly to help Leo and Felix battle the CRM officers. He told them that he doubled back when he heard their distress call.

When they realized that they were out gunned, Will told them to split up. Felix ran off but was cornered by Lieutenant Newton.

‘People like you are worse than the dead,’ Newton said. ‘Not today. Today you lose.’

Newton said he was offering him a fair fight. He told Felix that he read his psych report and asked if he was going to disappoint him like he had disappointed everyone else in his life.

‘Your own parents wanted nothing to do with you,’ Newton said.

Instead of fighting him, Felix opened up a cage and let loose a group of zombies on him. He let Newton battle the zombies for a while before stepping in to fight him and the zombies at the same time. During the fight, Felix ended up stabbing Newton in the stomach and killing him.

At the culling facility, Huck informed Dennis and Silas that whatever the CRM did to block their communications was also affecting the detonators. She said that they needed to figure out another way to set off the explosions. Dennis said there was an emergency weapon stash several miles away and that he would go to scout what was there with Silas. Huck said she would stay behind.

‘We got this,’ Dennis told her.

After they left, Jadis landed her helicopter at the culling facility. She immediately recognized the CRM jeep parked outside. When Jadis entered the warehouse, Huck jumped her. The two fought with kill sticks.

Jadis asked her what she got out of betraying her people. Huck said the CRM were supposed to stand for humanity but that it was not humane what the CRM did.

Huck reminded Jadis that she traded someone’s life to get into the CRM and that she was a murderer. Jadis said they couldn’t have wiped out Omaha without Huck’s report about how and where everyone would gather for Monument Day.

‘We knew precisely where to hit, all thanks to you,’ said Jadis.

With Huck slightly distracted by this devastating news, Jadis stabbed her in the stomach and said, ‘It didn’t have to be this way.’

Huck crumbled on the floor bleeding and talked about the watch she wore and that it was the only thing she had to remember of her father. She said her mother said that watch would always bring them together but that this time it wouldn’t.

Jadis looked at her wrist and saw that the watch was gone.

‘How much time do I have?,’ asked Jadis as she dropped her weapon and ran. Jadis ran out and yelled at her officers that the containers were rigged to blow.

‘We are leaving, now!,’ yelled Jadis as she ran to her waiting helicopter.

Elton, Hope and Iris continued to try and make it out quickly out of the potential blast radius. They were slowed down by the almost seemingly endless zombies that kept coming at them. A car then pulled up and it was Indira who gunned down the zombies for them.

Huck, who laid in the ground in a puddle of blood, had used her watch as the detonator for the explosives. The bomb she rigged detonated and a green cloud of toxic gas exploded and formed a giant mushroom cloud in the sky.

Dennis and Silas got to the house and located weapons but then heard the explosion. Dennis knew then that Huck was gone. He began to bleed out and Silas offered to stitch him back up. Silas told Dennis that Huck might still be coming but Dennis, crying now, said ‘she’s not.’

He told Silas that he was also not going to make it. He heard the CRM officers and told Silas that his only option was to shoot him and to make it seem to the CRM that he was a hero. Silas cried as Dennis begged him to do it.

‘No matter what they tell you, you are not one of them,’ Dennis said. ‘Do it.’

After he shot Dennis, Silas was taken into custody by the CRM.

Out in the woods, Indira yelled at Hope, Elton and Iris to get in her car. A zombie came close to Hope and Elton used his arm to push it away but not before it bit him.

Later, Elton had to have his arm amputated. He recuperated with the others. Leo said they should secure him just in case. Will handed Indira what he found in Elton’s bag and it was her insulin.

With things now seeming slightly secure, Iris told Leo that some of Indira’s people had offered to go with her to warn Portland. Hope said that they couldn’t leave Elton. Iris told them to stay but that she would go with them.

‘It’s what I’m supposed to do,’ she said.

Hope agreed and said it was about the future. Iris told them she would come back with reinforcements from Portland. Felix told Leo that Iris was a fighter.

At the CRM, Jadis brought in Silas. He told her how he shot Dennis because he was trying to force him to be a part of something that he didn’t want to be a part of.

‘He got what he deserved,’ he said.

Silas told Jadis that he was banished from the others and that they were never his friends.

Jadis said she knew Dennis put him up to it but that she still thought Silas would make a great soldier. She told him that she was going to take him on as her own special project. Jadis said she could see him for who he really was and couldn’t wait to see who he would become.

Jadis later met with Elizabeth and told her she was sorry for her loss. Jadis told her a story about how she had instructed her team to bring Huck to justice safely but she didn’t give them a choice.

‘I did monstrous things so that civilizations could reign again,’ Elizabeth said.

Jadis told her that a strong person could get weak and that it could be used to her advantage. Soldiers then marched toward them and Elizabeth asked her what was happening. Jadis pulled her gun and told Elizabeth that she was being remanded to the health and welfare complex until she would be tried by the CRM military justice for treason.

Jadis told Elizabeth that her own daughter was a traitor and that she brought insurgents into the CRM.

‘Everything that happened, happened because of you,’ Jadis said. ‘I suspect you brought me in to take the fall.’

Pinning blame: 'Everything that happened, happened because of you,' Jadis said. 'I suspect you brought me in to take the fall'

Elizabeth said General Beale would have Jadis’ head for this.

‘Who do you think signed your arrest warrant?’ Jadis said.

Iris hugged her father goodbye. Indira told Leo that Iris was in good hands with her people. Iris hugged Hope and told her she loved her.

Right before Iris left, Asha [Madelyn Kientz] walked over and told them that Elton was awake. They all ran to see him.

Elton then spoke and said that there was a time when he thought he was going to die.

‘That we were all going to die,’ he said as Hope worked with the other scientists in their new lab to come up with a solution to the apocalypse. ‘Because I believed we were the last generation.’

‘And then for a while I thought we were the beginning but that ignores everything that came before, everyone who came before. What I know for sure is that there is a lot that is tough about the world. And a lot that is harder than I thought it could ever be,’ Elton added.

As Elton spoke, Elizabeth was shown lying on a bed in a prison cell, while Silas was shown as a CRM soldier. Will and Felix were shown smiling in bed together and holding hands with their dog.

Hope was shown working in the new laboratory running tests on zombies. Iris was shown marching with her soldiers through the woods and reaching Portland.

Then Elton was shown with Asha joining Iris when she reached Portland.

After the credits ran, there was a final cryptic scene of a woman in France walking into an old bio medicine lab and downloading drives onto a computer. A man came in and held a gun at her and asked her if she was one of the doctors. She told him she was. She told him she was part of the team that was in Ohio.

The woman said she hoped that her team was back here and was still working on a cure because they were so close. The man told them that they were all dead and that he wouldn’t jail her like others. He said ‘you started this’ and ‘you made it worse’ and then he shot and killed her.

A video played on her computer of a man who said there will be a day when they can beat this thing. The woman then transformed into a zombie and banged on the door to get out of the locked room.
