‘ Last season, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors were confronted
with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they
let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they
live in can be. Feeling powerless under Negan’s rules and demands, Rick advocated the
group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick
began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And
with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough
fire power to contest the Saviors. This season, Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The
Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the
unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future.
The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed
offensive. Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but
it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that
they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will
be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces,
Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom – Negan
and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end. ‘

I, personally, find myself relating to every single character in this book, including Matthias. I fail to see too many Matthias appreciation posts™ that really dissect his character. He is more than just being beside his significant other, and more than just being a protector, fighter, etc. this man embodies literally everyone, and symbolizes our inward prejudiced views. We learn from Matthias that you can be a morally good person with prejudiced and even hateful views. We can really connect with him when it comes down to society’s morals/rules versus familial morals/views versus OUR personal morals/views. Think about it: if you’re only influenced by what you’re constantly surrounded by, what else would you know? It took an outsider, a person who he was supposed to hunt and kill to slowly but surely change his ways. Matthias teaches us how we can overcome our prejudiced ways & views, and yet, with that, I honestly love how @lbardugo doesn’t make his character completely flawless even at the very end. He still had flaws, he still had lingering problems, doubts, and unjust beliefs in the back of his mind. He still made huge mistakes along the way. He still could not and would never completely adjust to his newfound view that went against everything he ever knew. Matthias is not a character that’s simply only for this set of people, or another set of people: he’s literally all of us. He reflects all of us.
