It's been six long weeks since The Walking Dead checked in on Carol and Morgan and their new lives at King Ezekiel's Kingdom, but that's all about to change.

In this sneak peek of the AMC hit's midseason finale, exclusive to E! News, we get our first glimpse at the pair of begrudging buddies in some time and, we've got to say, life under Ezekiel's rule looks pretty peaceful. There are books to be read, fireplaces to enjoy, and more fresh produce than Carol (Melissa McBride) knows what to do with.

"Apparently, some people are having a hard time believing me when I say I just want to be left alone," she tells Morgan (Lennie James) after he drops by with a sack of goodies from the Kingdom's garden, revealing that Ezekiel's been making frequent visits to Carol's little hideaway as well.

The biggest surprise of all? Carol's growing soft spot for her former foe Morgan. After she invites him in just to ask him how he's doing, Morgan himself can barely contain his surprise at her newfound concern.

"I think you're going soft," he cracks.

"I think you're going," she replies, reverting back to classic Carol.

Of course, if the surprise arrival at Carol's doorstep as Morgan goes to leave is any indication, the relative peace in the Kingdom looks poised for an interruption. This is The Walking Dead, after all. For a better sense of what we're talking about, you're going to have to press play on that video above!

Are you as psyched about the return to the Kingdom as we are? (Bring on the tiger!) Let us know in the comments below.

The Walking Dead midseason finale airs Sunday, Dec. 11 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
