Third episode Tales of the walking dead “D” sheds new light on the villain known as Alpha (Samantha Morton). It was a fantastic episode that made an already chilling story even more terrifying. One new character introduced in this episode was named Brook, played by Lauren Glaser.
This article contains spoilers from Tales of the Walking Dead episode 3, “Dee”.
Brook was the leader of a group that created their apocalyptic community on a riverboat. It seemed like a well-oiled machine until one man, Billy (Nick Basta), tried to stage a coup and capture him. Things have gone awry and everyone on the boat is presumed dead except for Brooke, Alpha/D and Lydia.
Dee, as Alpha was known in this episode, didn’t trust anyone on the boat and didn’t appreciate Brooke’s meddling in her upbringing of Lydia. After the boat crashed, Dee found Brooke broken and distraught in the woods. She was about to kill her until Lydia intervened. Instead, Dee left Brooke with a cut on her face to remind her that she let Lydia down.
The episode reveals more about Alpha’s twisted nature, and by the end of the episode, she sums up Alpha in her own words: “I stayed away from my nature. But that was the end of Dee—and the beginning of me.”
Showrunner Channing Powell spoke to Entertainment Weekly about Brooke’s future. She stated that Brooke survived and that if there are future seasons Tales from T.W.D. she would like to return to this character.
