Advertisements As I suspected, we didn't get any closure on the Rick/Negan/Alexandria/Saviors story tonight. Instead, we got introduced to The Kingdom and King Ezekiel. Seems basically like what Deanna was hoping to turn Alexandria into, but with a bit of a medieval flair. I liked that the Kingdom people were trying to poison the Saviors with tainted pigs. Wonder if anything will come of that. I also liked the conversation between Carol and Ezekiel. He saw through her act like nobody at Alexandria ever did, and he called her on it. And it seems he understands that she needs some solitude and to feel like she's on her own, but that she can accomplish that without wandering out into the woods by herself to surely die. I suspect most will be annoyed with this episode simply because it didn't advance the story they were hoping to see, but I kind of liked it because it showed a realistic example of how people could band together and create a society in the apocalypse without having everything turn to violence and death like it does when Rick and crew are around.
