Has The Kingdom Come?

The armored men on horses seen in the Season 6 finale MIGHT signal a HUGE upcoming storyline for The Walking Dead. NOTE: We can’t confirm the identity of these men/Season 7 storylines (so your guess is as good as ours) but if we’re speculating we’d guess these are the soldiers from a major community from the comics known as The Kingdom. Just in case we’re right we’ve decided to explain what The Kingdom is and what it COULD mean for The Walking Dead moving forward.


First encountered in Issue 108, The Kingdom is a nearby community located in a former D.C. high school surrounded by buses and sheets of metal. The Kingdom is ruled by Ezekiel, a warm self-appointed king who is known by his white dreadlocks, yellow-starred shirt, and pet tiger named Shiva. The Kingdom is protected by its soldiers, who wear armor and ride horses. The Kingdom eventually serves as a vital ally in Alexandria’s upcoming war with Negan and The Saviors.

Ezekiel1

(IN THE COMICS) following a Savior attack on Alexandria, Rick meets Ezekiel (through Jesus, who’s friends with members of The Kingdom) to propose Alexandria, The Kingdom, and The Hilltop combine forces to defeat Negan and The Saviors once and for all.

Ezekiel, who’s community is also forced to provide supplies to Negan agrees to Rick’s plan and their alignment lays the foundation for the upcoming All Out War storyline between the communities.

The Season 6 finale POSSIBlY gave us the first glimpse at the Kingdom soldiers after Morgan saves Carol from the Savior men. The kindness shown by the armored men WOULD match up with Kingdom soldiers, who empathize with people victimized by The Saviors. If we’re really going to jump down the rabbit hole of speculation, some could assume the men take Morgan and Carol to The Kingdom and patch them up, leading to Rick’s inevitable introduction/alliance with The Kingdom. (This is all speculation).


Again, since we can’t confirm any Season 7 storylines, tell us how YOU interpreted these men in the Season finale. Also, how do YOU think Ezekiel and The Kingdom will play into upcoming episodes?? Let us know that and more in the comments below!

    You know who could play Ezekiel. DAVE FENNOY! (The guy who does the voice acting from Lee in the Telltale games) Just take a look at the picture:

    I think the Kingdom will be a big part of season 7. Shiva? That would be too hep!

    I remember this popping up on the Twitter feed here a little while back. This is from the upcoming Ben Hur movie, I believe. Morgan Freeman on TWD? How awesome would that be?!
    Morgan. Freeman.

    I take it back Coral. I’m going to have to go with Morgan Freeman for the win. Because Morgan Freeman.

    There’s a Baltimore area stage actor name Garret Rasheed Turner that looks like him and a former DC area radio personality named Ron Allison that look just like hm

    Vinnie Mancuso of The Observer puts it very well.

    If AMC confirmed Shiva today, I’d immediately stop caring about who Negan killed. It could be Glenn. It could be Daryl. Season seven could start with Negan whacking baby Judith off a tee-ball set and I’d still be like “how cool is that tiger gonna’ be?”

    Nothing against Judith, she looks sweet, but I’m with Vinnie.

    Idk. I’m losing interest in the whole thing. Gimple just plays too many mind games and the levels of evil in this show is getting insane. Who would want to be a survivor of mankind becomes that? I’m not even excited about season 7 and I’ve never missed an episode. Not many characters left that keep me watching and I get sick to think of who is on the receiving end of the bat.
