The Walking Dead Season 7's new preview sees a darker side to the Kingdom

Written by

The Walking Dead Season 7 is fast approaching, and from the looks of this latest preview, the Kingdom and its leader are a forced to be reckoned with, and could even separate Morgan and Carol...

The Walking Dead Season 7 trailer first introduced us to the Kingdom and its leader King Ezekiel. Now in this latest trailer released by AMC, we see that the leader may not be as comforting as he first appears. Viewers saw a couple members of the Kingdom in the Season 6 finale, as Morgan and a soldier shook hands and gave the impression of forming an alliance. What happens after that moment is unknown, however it seems as though Morgan and Carol do not initially follow the group the the Kingdom, since the preview gives no sign of Carol's whereabouts.

Melissa McBride recently revealed that Carol and Morgan will have "philosophical differences" in TWD Season 7, and from the looks of this trailer, it could lead to their separation. At one point Morgan seems to be talking to Carol with the Soldiers behind him as he says, "I can't let you die out there." Let's hope these are the words that urge Carol to make it to safety.

From what we've seen so far of the Kingdom and Ezekiel, this particular community appears to be more welcoming than any others we've previously seen on The Walking Dead, especially when you look at Woodbury and the Sanctuary. In the preview Ezekiel says, "I am King Ezekiel. Welcome to the Kingdom." But as always, there are secrets behind every organisation, as the primary soldier who first met Morgan says to him in a moment of crisis, "No-one back home needs to know about this, any of it."

We have no clue what he could be referring to, but out of nowhere, Tara is seen poking her head around a corner just as these words are uttered. She seems to have been spotted, as she's later seen running in between shots of Ezekiel, his soldiers, and walker-eating pigs.
