Morgan, Carol, Benjamin, Richard, Shiva
The Kingdom, as Carol is quick to note, seems too good to be true. Led by intentionally over-the-top community theater actor Ezekiel, The Kingdom, on the surface, seems to be an idyllic community with a flourishing agricultural scene where kind and caring people work together to “replenish the well.”
But it’s not long before the threat of the Saviors rears its ugly head. Richard, who in the comics held the title of head of security in The Kingdom, seems eager to fight, but Ezekiel and the other members of the community seem content to give Negan his due. The Kingdom is a welcome beam of optimistic sunshine in what has so far been a grim season, and characters like Ezekiel and Benjamin could be exactly what Carol and Morgan need to pull out of the funk they’ve been in, but it’s unrealistic to believe that the good times can continue for long.
