Say hello to another new community! The world of The Walking Dead has greatly expanded over the last year and a half, as the move to Washington has introduced us to clusters of survivors from all over the place: in addition to the Alexandria Safe Zone, we've now got the Hilltop, the Kingdom, and of course the Sanctuary, each with their own people, both good and bad. The latest is a place known in the comics as "Oceanside." As the name suggests, it's a coastal town where people live in stranger-free isolation and customarily shoot intruders on sight. These people are well-armed, combat-ready, and merciless. They fend for themselves and have no interest in alliances of any kind. Even their youngest are handy with a semi-automatic, and much more than the Hilltop or even Alexandria, they seem to have the supplies and sense to survive on their own indefinitely.
Oh, and there are no men. As Tara soon learns, Oceanside is an all-female community — not out of some Mad Max-esque postapocalyptic ethos, they explain, but because the men once among them were wiped out systematically -- boys over 10 included. And whoever could be responsible for such a brutal and drastic measure?
