Alliances are always important on Into the Badlands and it seems that Tilda (Ally Ioannides) has now found herself begrudgingly back in one with the Widow (Emily Beecham). Will it last now that M.K. (Aramis Knight) has his powers back? That’ll just be one alliance under scrutiny during the AMC drama’s “Blind Cannibal Assassins,” written by Michael Taylor and directed by Toa Fraser, airing Sunday, May 13 at 10 p.m. ET.

Sunny (Daniel Wu), fresh off of using his skills to make it past Chau’s (Eleanor Matsurra) lone sniper, will continue with Bajie (Nick Frost) on a journey to get Henry help. Along the way, they’ll face off with a deadly new foe that has a dark connection to Sunny’s past. Meanwhile, Chau will enlist the help of her brother in the fight against new Badlands presence Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay). The TV Junkies have screen this week’s episode and below are dropping a few hints about what is to come. As always, there’s no spoilers, but just a few teases to tide you over until Sunday night.

 

Meet Brother Chau

With the war raging in the Badlands, Baron Chau needs more help, so she enlists that of her brother, Gaius. While we have no doubt that viewers will enjoy finally getting to meet Lewis Tan’s (Deadpool 2) character, he and his sister may not have the friendliest of sibling relationships out there. Despite her needing the help, whether or not he will be willing to give it may be up for debate.

A sight for sore eyes

As Bajie and Sunny continue to make their way to Vulture’s Peak, they meet someone new during their journey. The stranger may have some information that could prove useful to the duo as they make their way through the Wasteland on their way to find the Witch. However, as is always the case on Into the Badlands, the seemingly kind new face may not be able to be trusted.

Moon’s got his own way

The Widow’s new regent, Moon (Sherman Augustus) is still hot on the heels of tracking Sunny, who posed as regent when helping to take hold of Sniper Alley last week. His patience seems to be dwindling quickly and when someone tries to stand in his way or make demands, let’s just say that Moon has his own style of leading as regent and it’s definitely effective.

A vicious cycle

Now that Tilda and M.K. have been reunited they may find that their time apart has caused them to have differing opinions on some very important subjects. Things get even more complicated when Odessa (Maddison Jaizani) is thrown in the mix, but she may actually end up being the voice of reason. Regardless, both Tilda and M.K. will have to prioritize what they truly want to try and break the vicious cycle of violence that seems to never end in the Badlands.

Pilgrim is recruiting

After that cringe-inducing ritual that Pilgrim and Cressida performed earlier this season, the pair aren’t stopping their quest to try and take over the Badlands. They’re continuing to recruit followers, which of course leaves the other barons none too happy when they start losing workers. It may be time that Pilgrim learns who’s really in charge!

A mission for Nix

Curious and want to learn more about Nix (Ella Rae-Smith) and Castor (Dean-Charles Chapman), the young dark ones Pilgrim uses? We have been too! This week’s episode will give us a greater insight into Nix in particular, after Cressida (Lorraine Toussaint) sends her off on a special mission that may just be a ploy to keep Nix from worrying about Castor’s deteriorating health.
