Just hours after a long-time Apex Legends dataminer 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 of this season’s story, and the content is nothing short of electrifying.
All leaks should be analyzed with some skepticism, but the leaker has an excellent track record when it comes to accuracy, so it’s quite possible that the leak is actually legitimate. It is 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 where Wattson has a very interesting conversation with Mila Alexander, the adopted sister of Crypto (and technically Caustic). Mila has been missing for years, after she and Crypto discovered an algorithm that could potentially rig the Apex Games. When the Syndicate realized the siblings had revealed their dirty little secret, they went nuclear, kidnapping Mila and framing Crypto – real name Tae Joon Park – for her murder.
After a narrow escape, Tae Joon changed identities and joined the games as Hyeon Kim, hoping to expose the syndicate and clear his name. He spent years wondering if she was dead until a series of messages appeared in Kings Canyon that proved that not only was Mila alive – she was free. But both Mila and Crypto have to keep a low profile, so 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 depicts a conversation between Mila and Wattson (who is romantically involved with Crypto) where Wattson promises to keep the 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 has teamed up with Ash to uncover more Syndicate secrets. The evil half of Ash’s consciousness is determined to get rid of the remnants of her humanity. To do so, Ash methodically works through each reminder 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 Wattson herself is on Ash’s hit list. Ash nearly killed her at the end of Season 11, but the simulacrum’s human side broke through at the last moment, pushing Wattson into a body of water instead of impaling the legend with her sword.
Speaking of swords, it’s worth noting that not long after it was revealed that Ash sees something in Crypto, he received his heirloom, the Biwon Blade. The sword looks remarkably similar to the one Ash uses.
What happens in the rest of the leaked chapter is anyone’s guess, but if the leak is accurate, this means that both Crypto and Wattson will be keeping potentially dangerous secrets from each other after promise to be honest. Ash has already noticed the romantic spark between the two legends and nothing good can come of it.
