Season 7 of The Walking Dead has been a doozy. With All Out War against Negan and The Saviors in full effect, the first half of the season has followed The Militia's big plan for victory against the villains. The most recent episode showed Rick once again returning to Jadis and The Scavengers, in an attempt to recruit the monosyllabic back onto the right side of apocalyptic history. In her last appearance, Jadis was shown doing some junkyard crafting in the buff, and actress Pollyanna McIntosh recently revealed why the group has no problem being nude. With society crumbled, Jadis and The Scavengers are able to make their own rules.
While naked sculpting might not have been appropriate in the area outside of DC during the pre-apocalypse, the end of the world let Jadis and her followers create their own world. Although it likely smells real bad in their community, it allows The Scavengers to strip down whenever they feel like it.
Pollyanna McIntosh's comments to Comic Book point out Jadis' unique world perspective. Her open mindedness about nudity and sex was shown during the Season 7 finale, when The Scavengers arrived in Alexandria to seemingly team up against Negan. Before their eventual betrayal, Jadis looked Rick up and down, and asked Michonne if she could "lay with him" after the battle was won. And now that she's got Rick in his underwear in captivity, one has to wonder if she'll make her interest known again.
The actress addressed this possibility as well, and explained how playing Jadis is fun because she's such a mysterious and original character. Pollyanna McIntosh elaborated, saying:
Talk about an odd couple. We'll have to wait and see exactly what Jadis is up to with Rick in captivity. Is she awaiting another character like Negan to show up? And when will the Alexandria cavalry show up to rescue their leader?
