Fans of "The Walking Dead" series who saw this week's "East" episode may have been treated to a glimpse of the Kingdom, which is another community of survivors. As various sources noted, the introduction of this new community could lead to a major story arc that's based on the comic books.
In the 15th Episode of the show, Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes and Lennie James' Morgan Jones make their way across a field as they search for Carol, played by Melissa McBride. But then, they encounter a mysterious man who's looking for his horse at a farm, Movie Pilot reported.
Scared off by Grimes and the walkers, the man, who's wearing protective armor, then runs away.
This encounter may have been very brief but it could lead to the appearance of a new community called the Kingdom. In the comic books, this group is holed up inside a fortified high school. They are led by the former zookeeper Ezekiel and his pet tiger Shiva.
Members of the community refer to their leader as King Ezekiel. And, as the subjects of a king, they consider their selves as knights, which is probably another reason why they wear armor.
Like Grimes' Alexandria and the Hilltop Colony, members of the Kingdom also detest Negan's Saviors because of their barbaric and savage actions. And, with a common enemy, this could mean that these three community could forge an alliance with one another to take on the Saviors, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This could very well happen in the show since this is a major plot point in the comic books. If the creators of the show decides to go down this path, then television viewers will be treated to the "All Out War" story arc in the comics, which was show in volumes 20 and 21.
In these two issues, Grimes leads an army composed of members of Alexandria, Hilltop and the Kingdom to stage an assault on the Sanctuary, which is the headquarters of Negan and the Saviors.
Of course, even though these details are based on the comic books, creators of the show could still go in a different direction. After all, there were some instances where they deviated from the original material.
