The Walking Dead turned its gaze toward Morgan and Carol in the Kingdom this week. Really, it’s all about Morgan, and if you’re going to focus on one character you might as well choose one of your strongest assets and best actors on the show.
This week’s episode asks: Can a missing melon spark a war?
Morgan and Carol meet the armored, horse-riding people of the Kingdom, and their King.
Warning: The following contains spoilers for the second episode of The Walking Dead‘s seventh season.
Last week we survived the horrible trauma of Negan’s arrival. This week we sharply pivot to a whole different setting, as Morgan and Carol meet the armored, horse-riding people of the Kingdom.
And their King.
When we left off last season, Morgan had just tracked down Carol and the two met some scouts from a place called “The Kingdom.” Now, Carol’s hurt and they agree to go there to seek refuge.
Carol appears to be suffering from some very serious injuries that are affecting her mental status. Shot and weakened, she begins to see zombies as regular people being murdered. She wanders off disoriented before being rescued by more Kingdom folks — with some rather impressive face-lift kills.
