    He's the leader of a highly functioning community that has soldiers, crops, a CHOIR and, oh my yes.....a tiger.

    Let's show our appreciation for the former zookeeper who figured out how to leverage the tiger he saved, along with this theater background, to give people hope and become the leader they needed when the world went to hell.

    Ok just finished the episode this morning. I LOVE the Kingdom and its awesome king. It's so refreshing to see another leader in the ZA that gets it. People do NEED a leader, something big to be a part of. This time he just happens to be one of the good guys (if they follow the comics).

    I also get the criticism about him being over the top but I'm sooo good with that as with dead people walking the earth and eating people and all.

    Long live the sexy King! :hearts:

    He was actually not over the top enough for me. I had imagined him more bombastic (then again, I had the same feeling for Negan)

    I like Ezekiel. He is refreshing. Kirkman should be fawning over him instead of Negan. Or maybe more so.

    King Ezekiel in Every Episode » The Well
    People want someone to follow. It’s human nature. They want someone to make ‘em feel safe. And people who feel safe are less dangerous, more productive. They see a dude with a tiger, shoot. They start tellin’ stories about finding it in the wild, wrestling it into submission, turning it into his pet. They make the guy larger than life, a hero. And who am I to burst their bubble? Next thing you know, they treat me like royalty. They wanted, they needed someone to follow. So I acted the part. I faked it till I made it. I was a zookeeper. Shiva, she fell into one of the concrete moats in her exhibit. It was empty, the vets were on their way, but her leg was ripped open. She was gonna bleed out. The sound she made. She was in so much pain. I knew the risk. I had to try. And I got my shirt up around her leg saved her life. After that, she never showed so much as a tooth in my direction. Keeping a tiger isn’t practical. I know. She eats as much as 10 people. She could yank the chain out of my hand. Hell, she could yank my arm right off. But she hasn’t. She won’t. I lost a lot, just like everybody else. When it all started to end, I found myself back at the zoo. Shiva was one of the last animals left. She was trapped hungry, alone. Like me. She was the last thing left in this world that I loved. She protected me. She got me here, made me larger than life. And I made this place. I used to act in community theater. Played a few kings in my day. Arthur, Macbeth Martin Luther. My name really is Ezekiel, though. That’s 100% real. Cards on the table. Nothing up my sleeve. I’d appreciate you keep this between us, though, for them. And, yeah, a little bit for me.

    The thing is, though… it’s not all bad. It can’t be. It isn’t. Life isn’t.

    I. love. Ezekiel. so. much. :gabe: :zeke:

    He's my second favorite fella, only second to Rick of course, and he's so dreamy and playful and regal and perfect. I'm on cloud nine after 702.

    I couldn't have said it any better, honestly.

    I normally don't post in character threads, but considering the fears I had about this character, Khary called me out as a worrywart with his acting and I couldn't be happier about it. :lol:
