When Sherry doubts that she is pregnant, she seemingly starts to worry about how the arrival of a newborn will change her life and her relationship with Dwight. She fears whether he will betray her by joining Strand, especially considering his past and Strand’s offer to join him. Sherry doesn’t want her child’s father to be a betrayer. She rather suffers his absence than see him joining her enemy and force her to fight him. Thus, she panics and prepares a raft to keep Dwight away from Strand. But Dwight assures her that he doesn’t want to betray her and become excited about being a father.

Since Sherry is pregnant, admirers of the character must be wondering whether Christine Evangelista, who portrays the character, is pregnant too. However, the actress hasn’t announced that she is pregnant, which makes it evident that Sherry’s pregnancy is solely a creative development for the sake of the narrative of the show. The narrative development is expected to pave the way for severe changes in Sherry and Dwight’s life together, especially with regard to the fight against Strand.

When Alicia proclaims war against Strand for the Tower, Dwight and Sherry stand beside her as two soldiers with nothing to lose. They know that they cannot survive long out in the open due to the radiation exposure, which makes them fight for Alicia, even if it means risking their lives. The couple wants to have a shot at the only chance of survival by conquering the Tower. Sherry’s pregnancy, however, changes the significance of conquering the Tower altogether. Their unborn child makes Dwight and Sherry a potential father and mother respectively, who has everything to lose and gain by fighting Strand.

Dwight and Sherry, to provide safety and security to their unborn child, become increasingly motivated to conquer Strand’s sanctuary despite the impending dangers on their way. Rather than fighting for Alicia, the war becomes personal for the couple since the Tower is essential for any newborn, mainly due to the radiation exposure outside the establishment. In the upcoming episodes, we can expect them to battle Strand’s mighty forces for their and their unborn child’s sake and not for anyone else’s.
