"From the maps we know that American forces are standing their ground against the Guardians all along the West Coast, plus Texas and Florida," Redditer Kspence92 writes. "Could Nick be captured and perhaps defect to the US army and/or Mayday/Anti Gilead militia?” Other commenters agree that they’ve considered this storyline, with one adding that Nick may seek the rebels out of his own volition. “Or not being captured but seeking them out,” Reddit user oceaniadx writes. “I’m excited to see what the rebel areas are like. Hopefully, we will.”
Another Reddit user, TiredHungryAndMad, references the extended trailer for next week’s episode, which includes the line “I don’t think you know who Mr Blaine is.”
Reddit user kanjilal_s suggests that Nick might be an “Undercover agent like CIA,” possibly an American agent there to “bring down Gilead.” Reddit user NothappyJane adds: “I think he’s a spy for other countries/resistance.”
Either way, something big is happening - and Nick Blaine is involved.
