There’s so much to love about The Kingdom. But seeing Carol flustered was one of the best moments because nothing ever throws Carol off her game. No matter what the survivors have gone through and no matter what threats they have faced Carol takes it all in stride. She drops into her innocent housewife act until she can size up the situation and adjusts fire from there.

But she has no idea how to play the situation when she meets King Ezekiel and Shiva. Nothing in her post-apocalypse crash course in survival gave her a clue how to act when she meets a guy who calls himself a king and talks like an actor in a production of a Shakespeare play and has a tiger.

It was a moment of much needed humor to see her trying to figure out a way to buy herself enough time to figure out what role she needed to play in order to fly under the radar in The Kingdom. After the brutal emotional walloping that fans went through in The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be everyone needed that moment of humor.

By the end of the episode Carol met the real Ezekiel and knew that he wasn’t a nutter with a tiger like he appeared when she first met him. But watching her try to figure that out was great.
