On the occasion of the episode 5 of season 10 aired this Sunday, November 3 on AMC (USA) and OCS (France), Ezekiel has made a terrible revelation to Siddiq, worried for his health : he is suffering from thyroid cancer for almost a month. And unfortunately, the disease seems to evolve quickly.
Anything to disrupt the hero ? Not really : “I know what it is. I saw my grandfather go through it, and then my father. The pain, the cough, the swelling… I have seen them fight and defeat [the cancer]. Did you know that there is a 98% chance to survive this cancer ?“
Not a miracle ?
However, don’t expect a happy ending miracle for Ezekiel. Despite his experience in the face of this disease and the good statistics, he later recalled : “It was a different era. That of witchcraft, with the chemo, therapies with radioactive iodine, the thyroïdectomies. Now… we both know what it means“.
Yes, Ezekiel is destined to die and he is at peace with this idea. Well, almost. If it is not yet known at what time the cancer will show unbearable for him, which would probably force him to make a terrible decision, we already know that he does not dare to talk to Carol. And this future confrontation promises to be even more painful than the rest.
