The Well was definitely a different kind of episode than the season 7 premiere, and at least one of us really, really liked it. I won’t tell you who, you’ll just have to listen to see. Okay, twist my arm, it was me. This episode caught us up on what is happening with Morgan and our beloved Carol, as well as introduced us to a new community of people. During this episode, we see an entirely new way of life in the zombie apocalypse, one that seems a little hard for Carol to swallow. She thinks that the Kingdom is a joke and that King Ezekiel is, too. That is until he lets her in on his little secret. By the end of the episode, I think Carol and I are in agreement. Ezekiel and Shiva aren’t so bad after all.
It seems in this episode that both Morgan and Carol start out kind of adrift, but I think by the end of it, they both find their footing. I can’t wait for the Kingdom and Alexandria to finally team up to defeat the so-called Saviors, who don’t save anybody but themselves and their megalomaniacal leader. Maybe they will even get the Hilltop in on it, too, but they seem rather defeated already. In any case, I don’t want a super long conflict with the Saviors like there is in the comics. A girl can dream…
Now for a few things I didn’t say in the episode. I noticed, in the beginning, the second time I watched the episode that you can hear someone in the background ask Morgan what he’s doing, and you can see him in the background as he says he’s marking the way back. Then a few minutes later we see him marking a mailbox and putting the flag up. At the end of the episode, we see him lead Carol back to that same house he marked earlier, and he puts the flag back down. I really like that Carol and Morgan both seem to fit in with The Kingdom, and I also like that Ezekiel is crushing on Carol in a big way. I think they would be cute together, and maybe be another power couple to give Richonne a run for their money!
