Daryl, Aaron, and Gabriel become aware of Lance’s actual objectives, prompting them to assassinate the Commonwealth’s deputy governor’s men. They seek Lance in order to assassinate the surviving troops in order to protect Maggie and Hilltop. When Leah and her party arrive at Hilltop, the majority of them fall into Maggie’s trap, resulting in an explosion that kills them. When Maggie and her friends emerge from shelter following the explosion, Leah murders Marco and begins hunting the others. Maggie causes Elijah and Lydia to abandon her and flee, only to be apprehended by Leah. Max steals a file from Pamela back in the Commonwealth.

Max and Eugene join Connie and others in reviewing the material. They stumble discover a list of approximately 200 names, including Tyler and April. Magna invites Ezekiel to the meeting and assures him of whatever assistance needed to decrypt the data. Connie, as part of their covert campaign against Pamela, discloses Sebastian’s role in the deaths of several individuals, casting doubt on the Miltons’ integrity.

Is Leah Dead in The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 16? Who comes to Maggie’s aid?

Yes, Leah is no longer alive. Since fleeing Maggie, Leah has been waiting for an opportunity to avenge the deaths of her fellow Reapers. The alliance with Lance provides her with the ideal opportunity to realize her dream. Leah binds Maggie up after capturing her. She does not kill her adversary straight once, instead waiting to inform Maggie that she will exterminate her entire tribe and loved ones in retaliation for her acts. Leah values the potential to ruin everything Maggie has cared about, from Hilltop to her supporters, more than the chance to murder her.

Time, on the other hand, escapes Leah’s grasp. Maggie is able to untie her rope and fight back. Daryl comes at the scene and kills Leah in order to save Maggie. Daryl once loved her, but his feelings for her aren’t the same as his feelings for Maggie. When he is forced to pick between Maggie and Leah, he does not hesitate to shoot at and kill the latter. Maggie has always had his back and has been there for him. For Daryl, such a relationship is more important than his feelings for Leah. Daryl leads Maggie to Aaron, Gabriel, and other comrades after saving her before Lance can harm her.

What will become of Alexandria, Hilltop, and Oceanside? Why does Lance display Commonwealth banners in these towns?

Lance is a resident of Alexandria, Hilltop, and Oceanside. When Maggie resolves to help the Riverbend members, Lance sees she has the potential to become a powerful figure in other survivor communities, challenging his authority. Using Leah, he tries but fails to end Maggie’s life. Despite this, he manages to keep Maggie away from her community, especially while she is on the run. Lance takes advantage of her absence to assume control of Hilltop and hangs a banner to proclaim his dominance. He does the same in Oceanside because he knows that without Maggie to give protection and aid, the community is defenseless.

Lance grabs Oceanside to expand the scope of his rule, taking advantage of Rachel’s weakness. He also wants Maggie to avoid returning to Oceanside to battle him with Rachel. Alexandria, on the other hand, is the cost Daryl, Aaron, and Gabriel pay to protect Maggie. Lance has no duty to exclude Alexandria from his dictatorial regime after he discovers the trio isn’t on his side. The Commonwealth’s deputy governor seizes control of these communities, preventing Maggie and her friends from establishing a base to resist him.

Furthermore, Lance is still accountable to Pamela. If the Commonwealth’s governor demands an explanation for the deaths of countless soldiers, Lance must defend the fatalities. The incorporation of the three communities into the Commonwealth may assist him in pleasing Pamela. He also understands that he can use the communities to consolidate his authority, possibly defeating Pamela in time to become the great tyrant of the surviving.
