Did You Know?


The title of this episode refers to Ezekiel (the King) (Khary Payton), Maggie (the Widow) (Lauren Cohan) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln). They are the three leaders of the communities that have rebelled against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). See more »


At 24 minutes into the episode Carol gives the boy in the woods her pistol and tells him to keep the safety on until she tells him otherwise. She handed him a Glock, which has no manual safety. It's a striker fired pistol with a small safety lever in the trigger. Carol has been shown to be quite proficient with firearms, training other survivors, and would be aware of this. See more »

How to Destroy The King, the Widow and Rick and the Series
28 November 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"The King, the Widow and Rick" is another episode with potential destroyed by the writers. The former balanced and rational leader Rick is turned into an unbalanced man, capable to visit alone a woman that betrayed and shot him to ask for the support of the Garbage People in the war against Negan. But didn't he say that they were winning the war and The Saviors are trapped by a herd of walkers? Why would he need the support of this nasty treacherous people? The leader Ezequiel now is a talkative depressed man with an annoying speech and no attitude. Maggie was a character kept safe until this episode where she builds cages to imprison The Saviors including that tall and scornful long- haired Savior that should have been executed a long time ago. Jesus feeding The Saviors using Hilltop supplies is also ridiculous and hard to understand. The only good part is Gregory staying with the other prisoners. Michonne kicking the tennis ball and Rosita dropping her gun in a crucial moment are awful clichés and Daryl hitting the car with sound boxes with a truck does not have any explanation since he was behind a building with Tara with no view to what was happening to Michonne and Rosita. Carl risking his life to destroy walkers with his new acquaintance is also inexplicable. At least the unreasonable shooting has ended. My vote is six.
