The premiere episode of the seventh season of “The Walking Dead” was brutal but brilliant. It was so unnerving that it’s only proper for the show makers to take a more laidback means for the second episode (Walking Dead 7x02).

Spoiler alert: This preview contains plot details about season 7 of “The Walking Dead.” The seventh season premiered Oct. 20. The series is available for Australian viewers to watch on Foxtel every Monday, 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Expect the next episode of “The Walking Dead” to be less stressful as it will include a fan-favourite character from the comic books and a place that could be a sanctuary for Rick and his companions. An episode 2 synopsis provided fans a glimpse of King Ezekiel and his aptly named haven, The Kingdom.

According to TV Guide’s narrative for the next episode, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang are “introduced to a new well-established community that seems too good to be true.”

The synopsis may not reveal a lot of things about the follow-up episode, but the preview video below shows an injured Carol (Melissa McBride) being taken by Morgan (Lennie James) to see King Ezekiel (Khary Payton).

In the comic books, Ezekiel is an eccentric individual who owns a pet tiger named Shiva. He is the leader of the people at The Kingdom. The final episode of season 6 gave viewers a prelude to Ezekiel and The Kingdom, but it was over before anybody could take a peak at the character or the place. Ezekiel is also not fond of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and he’ll join with Rick’s group along with the people at the Hilltop Colony to battle Negan and The Saviors.

Last episode, Negan viciously killed Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn (Steven Yeun). Negan first took out Abraham after a bone-chilling “Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe,” bashing his head with Lucille, Negan’s barb-wire wrapped bat. He then did the same thing to Glenn after Daryl (Norman Reedus) tried to fight.
