The Kingdom Is in Disrepair
Apparently not all is well within the Kingdom. As a now-teenage Henry (Matt Lintz) attempts to fix a broken pipe, he laments to Carol and Jerry about how everything is constantly falling apart and no one knows how to repair anything. He mouths off about it to King Ezekiel, who does not appreciate the 'tude or the tone, and reveals that he wants to travel to Hilltop to apprentice under their blacksmith. It's during the subsequent conversation between Ezekiel and Carol that we learn the communities have drifted apart since Rick died and relations have been tense.
Ezekiel eventually agrees to let Henry go off to Hilltop with Carol riding along via wagon. Their ride is interrupted by a group of Saviors who Carol ends up killing for roughing up Henry. When they continue their journey, they run into a wandering Daryl, who seems to have taken his lone wolf nature to an extreme during the last six years.
