In the new trailer, anger rises in the face of America Show timesequel series of Waco: Consequence. After the tragic events of the Waco siege at Mount Carmel, the show focuses on the trials of the surviving Branch Davidians and the outrage of civilians who felt the feds had gone too far. After the death of many, including the leader of the Branch Davidians, David Koresh (Taylor Kitsch), domestic terrorists were only encouraged, which led to the emergence of a new domestic threat, Timothy McVeigh (Alex Breaux). New footage is shown Michael ShannonGary Noesner is trying to stop more violence, despite opposition from the public and others in the FBI.
The cover video for Apostasy begins with Noesner explaining that Waco only brought together domestic terrorists who supported the civil war and others who distrusted the American government and justice system. The result was an increase in incidents and an increase in hostility towards the FBI in particular. Noesner wants to continue the investigation These are new domestic threats, but the bureau is facing scrutiny from all sides for its actions. There are fears that bulldozing domestic terrorists will continue to make them more powerful, but Noesner and others know the best course of action is to try to protect people from further violence.
Waco: Consequence One wants to draw a direct line from the Waco massacre to the Oklahoma City bomber McVeigh and the emerging Patriot movement. Both are strongly hinted at as a note McVeigh signed appealing to his patriots is found, but there are other tantalizing signs of extremism in the trailer. The men point to the Waco agents and demonstrate target practice with ATF-labeled firearms, and they have detailed notes for their next attack. Their respective actions continue throughout the rest of the trailer, and the final shot shows Koresh nodding off before cutting to a truck full of explosives — the explosives that would eventually be used in the Oklahoma City bombings.
