In Kingdom’s hardscrabble universe, “the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.” It’s a cut and dry statement that neatly sums up the difference between predator and prey, but in actuality, things are never that simple for the show’s characters.
When we last saw Alvey and the Navy St. crew, they were collectively celebrating the victories of Ryan and Jay, but also facing personal tragedies. Alvey was grappling with the loss of Lisa and Chappas’ suicide, Wheeler was struggling with the fact that he was forced to kill his own father, Jay and Christina were dealing with her overdose, and Nate was still trying to figure out his place in the ring and in the world.
There are a lot of loose ends for next season, and with all that’s currently going on, it will be interesting to see how the storylines of Laura and Alicia develop. But, regardless of how it all turns out, there will be no backing down. Alvey and his band of warriors will be facing their demons head on.
Check out the trailer below and don’t miss the return of Kingdom on Wednesday, June 1, at 9pm ET/PT on Audience®.
