When she is sneaking out during the night, she stumbles upon King Ezekiel that tells the story of his life. Meanwhile Morgan goes hunting pigs that are fed with walkers with the residents. What will they do with the pigs? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


Henry, the younger brother of Ben (the boy Morgan trains to fight), is played by Macsen Lintz, the younger brother of Madison Lintz, who played Carol's (Melissa McBride) daughter Sophia in seasons 1 and 2. See more »


A tiger has managed to survive, despite the main plot point of the show being the scarcity of any type food. It certainly couldn't eat walkers either, because the series has made the point to deteriorate/decay them too much for such an animal to be able to consume. See more »

Kingdom clan totally bizarre, Negan still boring
31 January 2017 | by ArneArdvarkSee all my reviews

The Kingdom clan felt like a desperate attempt to introduce a fresh dimension. I don't think it flew. A for effort.

Negan... oh please. Really? Boooorrrrrrrrriiiiiiinnnnngggg!

This singular story line featuring the most uninteresting character on the entire show to date.... I hope changes. What were the writers thinking? And the writers of Negan's lines?

Most interesting thing is the side plot of Carol and Morgan. And Carol calling out King Ezekiel for the silliness of his whole system. At least King E was honest enough to admit it.

Looking forward to return to better writing.
