Variable on slide not changing state on master

I'm not sure if this is expected behavior, because I know when you are working with master slides it can be tricky. Here's what's going on:

I have some shapes on a layer on a master slide. The learner is able to view this "pop up" anytime throughout the scene. That part works fine. However, ideally I have an additional shape that appears (changes state from hidden to normal) upon a variable being changed due to viewing a certain slide.

I have this layer trigger on the master: 

I have this on one of the slides:

I've verified that the variable is changing to true, but for some reason when I open the layer, the state is not changing.

Thanks!
