'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' Episode 5 Preview: Will Felix succeed in using Elon as a wedge in the group?

Felix is out of time to convince the teens to turn home as they've reached the Mississipi and he's doing all he can to use Elon as a wedge to weaken the group's resolve

While Iris Bennett (Aliyah Royale) and Hope Bennett (Alexa Mansour) are out to save their father, their companion, protector and unofficial parental guardian Felix Carlucci (Nico Tortorella) has another priority entirely — to get all four kids to turn back and head home. Iris and Hope's determination remains undimmed for the moment, but Felix is prepared to put a wedge in the group to weaken their resolve.

Though reluctant, Elon Ortiz (Nicolas Cantu) is that wedge, and Felix is going to put as much pressure as he can on Elon to convince the others to turn around, no matter how manipulative it might be.

AMC has released a sneak peek for the episode ahead, where we hear Hope talking about the power of nature as an unstoppable force. The voiceover puts into perspective the inevitability of death as the group makes their trek onwards and discusses their plans forward. Felix, in the meantime, knows that he's running out of time to convince the group to turn back.

Once they cross the Mississipi, they're all past the point of no return, and so far neither Elon nor Felix have even begun to get the rest of the group to change their minds about their journey. The synopsis for the episode teases a further "snag" when it comes to convincing the teens to turn around, just as they're about to cross the Mississipi River — meaning that whatever cards Felix may be holding up his sleeve, he needs to use them all as soon as is possible.

Elon is not the most enthusiastic ally, however, meaning that Felix truly has his work cut out for him — the question is, how desparate is he and how far will he go to ensure the teens' safety?

The synopsis for this episode, titled 'Madman Across the Water', reads: "While the group works together to cross the Mississippi River, a plot to steer the teens back home hits a snag; a member of the group must overcome past trauma to save the others from an approaching threat." You can watch the opening minutes to the episode in a sneak peek below.
