I really liked the character in last night's episode. Walking Dead constantly brings in wave after wave of annoying characters but I think this is the first person I've liked since Herschel (well maybe Tyreese). And I was expecting not to like this guy.

I loved that scene with him and Carol (I sense sparks) where he leveled with her. The main group, Alexandria, Hilltop Colony, Woodbury, the Saviors, the Wolves...everybody else in the zombie apocalypse is kind of depressing. But Zeke livens things up. So far his Kingdom seems like the only place worth living. For a guy who calls himself a king I liked how compassionate and fatherly he was. I'd play along with his king shtick because so far it seems to be working...his people seem happy but they don't seem naive like the dorks back in Alexandria. Plus you get to see a tiger and eat fruit cobbler everyday.

It was a very good introduction. Carol's reaction to meeting him was priceless, and her reaction afterwards (when she was alone with Morgan) had me laughing out loud (the very first time this show ever achieved that). And then his dropping-the-mask scene humanized him, and showed us he's not a crazy lunatic. Heck, Ezekiel even impresses the Saviors.

In the comics, Ezekiel ends up with Michonne. Looks like in the show, Michonne pairs up with Rick and Carol pairs up with Ezekiel. I think both of these pairings make a lot of sense.

Carol is my favorite character on this show by a wide margin, and King Ezekiel looks like a very interesting love-interest for her - so I'm on board. It's about time Carol had a strong partner who treats her well.
