Of course The Walking Dead would drop a rather calm episode following the super intense season premiere last weekend that had us all in our feelings.
Tonight’s episode we caught up with Carol and Morgan, yes it was somewhat a slow episode but we finally met a new key player. Carol is still recovering after her encounter with some saviors that Morgan saved her from. Morgan and Carol end up the quaint community called The Kingdom who seem to be completely oblivious to ongoing zombie apocalypse. Carol finally wakes up, she is not in the 100% but she is getting there.
Morgan explains to Carol exactly where they are and how The Kingdom operates.He introduces her to King Ezekiel and his pet tiger/protector Shiva.
Carol’s reaction was pretty much like:
Carol is not here for the bull you know what but plays along for now just for the sake of peace. From there we learn that The Kingdom is a very self-sufficient town and even has a damn choir. Yup a choir! Carol is not here for any of it and wants to leave immediately but her health isn’t helping matters. Morgan on the other is rather pleased with the peace and tranquility of The Kingdom.
Ezekiel also takes a liking to Morgan after he witnesses Morgan’s impressive skills with his staff. He asks Morgan to train one of his guards who is pretty much not too keen with a weapon. Morgan was reluctant at first but then agrees after Ezekiel in his best Game of Throne’s voice convinces him. We also learn that in order to maintain the peace The Kingdom regularly trades with Negan and his saviors.
The residents of The Kingdom of course do not know that their king trades with Negan for the sake of peace. BUT to spite The Saviors, Ezekiel sends Negan some slaughtered pigs but these pigs are special cause they feed on walkers.
We just hope they keep that infected swine away from Darryl since he is currently a prisoner of Negan and The Saviors. Carol finally musters up enough strength to pack her things and leave. She doesn’t get to far and is discovered by Ezekiel.
Ezekiel reveals that he knew Carol was faking it all along cause he pretty much has been faking it too! His royal voice completely changes and now he’s just Ezekiel the former zoo keeper and a pretty good actor. He tells Carol how he came upon his pet tiger Shiva and how he became the leader of The Kingdom.
Even after Ezekiel confesses to Carol that he’s been faking it to make it she still decides that The Kingdom is not the place for her. Ezekiel doesn’t stop her, Morgan escorts her to a house where she decides to shack up. She immediately gets her first visitor and guess who it is?
Yup that’s right Ezekiel! Is he trying to shoot his shot with Carol or nah?Guess we will find out really soon. We can’t wait till next week where we catch back up with Rick and the gang after their deadly encounter with Negan and his Saviors.
