Fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting for years for an explanation on the “A and B” designations for people in CRM. Guided.news clarifies the difference between A’s and B’s in The Walking Dead and gives you a glimpse into Rick’s future. (This article is from our former horror blog Survivethis.news & has been refreshed)
A & B, where do you know that from again? In the mother series The Walking Dead, garbage woman Jadis collected A & B people. She had set up special containers for this purpose. These were taken away with CRM helicopters. When Rick was found injured by Jadis on the riverbank after his suicide mission, she revealed to the CRM just approaching that she had no A, but a B for the CRM. Until now, it was unclear what was behind the abbreviations. Short and sweet — A & B distinguishes classes of people!
The search for the cure? A and B explained – A-persons are at A****
That is what A means: As we had described in our post on CRM, A-persons are all those who are abused to research an antidote to the Wildfire Virus.
They are deliberately turned to look for possible solutions in the early stages of zombification. It’s simply not worth it to mess around with completely decomposed corpses. A’s therefore presumably serve to develop a vaccine that suppresses the virus.
That’s what the latest episode of The Walking Dead: World Beyond leads us to believe. The spin-off here showed a minute and a half of extra footage after the actual end of the fourth episode, which takes place inside the CR.
What does the post-credit scene of World Beyond show? Here we can watch a scientist describe and classify a test subject described as TS: A 402. There is such important information in this designation:
- TS = Test Subject.
- A = A or B specification.
- 402 = Numbering of the subject according to the number of test subjects.
Again and again, however, it is panned to a group photo, which shows not only the practicing doctor, but also the father of Iris and Hope as well as the test subject is just shown. It’s also interesting that there are tons of cross-references to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in this scene. This last occurred in the final episode of the very first season of The Walking Dead. Here we met Dr. Jenner, who was the supposed last scientist in the U.S. working on a cure. He referred to his test subjects as ,,TS: F 19″ and happens to wear the same plague suit as the CRM staff. I wonder if they are related?
Rick Grimes is a “B” – What does that mean for him?
What B means: If A’s are people who are cleared for testing, then by implication B’s must be valuable members. So a B is a person who is allowed to work and live in the Civic Republic. Soldier Barca, whose fate we have reported, was to be committed to a Correctional & Health Complex for questioning the motives of the CRM. He is to remain there until he is purged and able to be deployed again. However, when he mentioned that he can never be again, Elizabeth told him that he would never leave the complex then. Barca may have gone from a B person to an A person at that moment.
Rick suffers the same fate: Rick is also a B, but knowing the badass sheriff, he certainly doesn’t let anyone tell him what to do and what not to do. He could also be stuck in this reform school at this point.
Maybe Barca will get a leading role in the Rick Grimes movies? We would be happy at least!
