Khary Payton Talks Carol Peletier King Ezekiel Relationship


“She helped him be human again. In a lot of ways, Carol was helping Ezekiel get back up,” said actor Khary Payton on Talking Dead. When he closed the gates of the Kingdom, he was finally coming back into his element, in front of Carol Peletier.

Over the past two seasons, Carol and King Ezekiel have grown close. He has made it clear that he will be real with her, even if he’s not to anyone else. This confidence and mutal respect made Carol feel something for the King.

As for love, Payton also joked, “Ezekiel definitely wants to get laid.”

Does Carol Peletier Have Feelings For Daryl?

Most The Walking Dead fans are still holding on to the chance that Carol Peletier and Daryl Dixon will one day get together. Since the very beginning, they’ve been close, but sparks have never been ignited.

Since Daryl Dixon hasn’t found love on the show, many wonder about his sexuality and whether he ever will find love. For Daryl, the obstacle has been simply fitting into the group and feeling a general sort of family love.

Perhaps Daryl and Carol will always be like siblings, but what does that mean for Carol and her love life?

The Truth About Carol Peletier’s Love Life

Carol Peletier began the show as a battered housewife. Since the beginning, her character has grown a great deal and survived every obstacle. More often than not, she’s the most badass character on the screen.

With this new power, she has not had time for love. After Daryl, King Ezekiel has been the closest thing she has found to a partner.

Since last season, it’s been clear that the King has eyes for Carol. But she does very little to return the favor. When she cries at his weakness on stage, she’s perhaps just upset to see a good friend down in the dumps.

In the finale, the King finally finds his place, but it would appear to be too late. When the series returns, there’s about a 50/50 chance that the King will end up on Negan’s fence. That is, of course, unless Carol can save him.

Do you think Carol will finally reveal her love for the King?
