On Monday, AMC uploaded some new press photos from the upcoming “Out of the Ashes.” In the captions for a photo of McDermitt and Ramos, she was clearly identified as “Decoy Stephanie.” Another photo, this one featuring Margot Bingham, identified her as “Max, FKA Stephanie.”
As of Tuesday, the captions have been edited to read just “Stephanie” for Ramos and “Max” for Bingham, but Insider has since shared screenshots of the originals. It wouldn’t make a lot of sense for Margot Bingham to be playing a different character than the one she was playing before, so the likelihood that “Max” is in fact “Stephanie” is nearly 100 percent.
Perhaps Mercer (Michael James Shaw), the leader of the Commonwealth’s security forces, still might not trust Eugene, and has somebody keeping an eye on him to try to find holes in his story. Mercer warned Eugene that if he lied to him, he will find out — it seems like this is how he’s going to find out.
“Out of the Ashes” is currently available to stream on AMC+, and will premiere on AMC on Sunday.
