Just hours after an Apex Legends data miner revealed what appears to be an unreleased tutorial trailer, another discovery has been made, and this one has some very interesting narrative implications. The leak appears to show a page from an unreleased chapter in this season’s story, and the content is nothing short of electrifying.
All leaks should be viewed with some skepticism, but the leaker has an excellent track record when it comes to accuracy, so there’s a good chance the leak is legitimate. exist massive spoilers aheadso don’t read on if you’re trying to avoid them.
The leak in question shows a page from this season’s story arc in which Wattson has a very interesting conversation with Mila Alexander, Crypto’s (and technically, Caustic) adoptive sister. Mila has been missing for years, after she and Crypto discovered an algorithm that could manipulate the Apex Games. When the Syndicate realized the brothers had discovered her dirty little secret, they went nuclear, kidnapping Mila and framing Crypto, whose real name is Tae Joon Park, for her murder.
After narrowly escaping, Tae Joon changed his identity and joined the games as Hyeon Kim in hopes of exposing the Syndicate and clearing his name. She spent years wondering if she was dead until a series of messages appeared in Kings Canyon proving that Mila was not only alive, but that she was free. But both Mila and Crypto must keep a low profile, which is why we haven’t seen the siblings interact since the discovery of Mila’s messages.
The leaked story page reveals that Mila may play a role in a future story. The page shows a conversation between Mila and Wattson (who is romantically involved with Crypto) in which Wattson promises to keep their conversation a secret from Tae Joon. This is not a good sign, as Crypto claimed at the end of season 9 that he and Wattson “have no secrets”.
But Wattson isn’t the only one with secrets. Crypto is also hiding something: the fact that he teamed up with Ash to uncover more Syndicate secrets. The evil half of Ash’s conscience is determined to rid him of the vestiges of humanity. To do so, Ash methodically works his way through every memory of her life as a human, destroying everything that ties her to the past.
Ash became a simulacrum after Wattson’s grandmother murdered her, meaning that Wattson herself is on Ash’s blacklist. Ash almost killed her at the end of season 11, but the human side of the simulacrum broke through at the last moment, pushing Wattson into a body of water instead of impaling the legend on her sword.
Speaking of swords, it’s worth noting that not long after Ash was revealed to see something in Crypto, he received his Heirloom weapon, the Biwon Blade. The sword looks remarkably similar to the one Ash uses.
What happens in the rest of the leaked story chapter is anyone’s guess, but if the leak is accurate, this means that both Crypto and Wattson will be keeping potentially dangerous secrets afterward. promising to be honest. Ash has already noticed the romantic spark between the two legends, and nothing good can come of it.
