The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln croons a goofy goodbye for Chandler Riggs

26 February 2018

Basically never, so it was fitting to use our header image here. Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes in the AMC series, is about to exit the show due to his character's demise.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan in The Walking Dead.

If The Walking Dead is able to tell a great story within this installment, there's a good chance that we will see viewers stick around to see the remainder of season 8.

There are still seven episodes left this season. You can't kill all of them dad, there has to be something after.

It's a closeup of Rick looking sad again. Be sure to let us know yours in the comments! Just like Kelly was dragged into this fight against evil and was caught completely off guard, it was very similar to the actor struggling for 10 years. His right hand rests on large machete/knife, is slathered in blood and he looks exhausted and defeated. The end is nigh.

Sunday night was a rough one for fans of The Walking Dead's Carl Grimes, the shaggy-haired, one-eyed, Stetson-wearing, pudding-loving son of Rick.

Back in the Alexandria sewers now, for a Ninja Turtles scene. There's real tension here, in Carl's death scene. But when you're dealing with someone like Chandler who's been on the show from the beginning, from literally the end of the first episode, it was rough. Killing Gavin won't help, but Morgan says he must. As we move into this third season, Pablo sees things differently. Was there anyone that you wish that he had gotten to say goodbye to? He spends time on the porch with his little sister, Judith, and takes a selfie; he writes good-bye notes to Rick, Michonne and Enid; he soaks up the sun one last time; and then he grabs a cot, some candles, and prepares to die.

But surely, many others will continue to realise that enough is enough-and that it's time to walk away from The Walking Dead. I love doing the show; I love the character; I love playing Rick.

And now, a few highlights. Rick believes showing Negan how much they thrive without him is a suitable punishment; unsurprisingly, folks in the community disagree, but nevertheless it's true that during peacetime, Negan is confined to a cage. With some of his last words, Carl explains that Rick's decision to show mercy on the Woodbury survivors back at the prison made him the compassionate teen he'd become. Daryl's taking Judith so Michonne can stay too. Later that same season we learned that Carl was slowly but surely becoming a ruthless killer after he shot Jody, a young man from Woodbury who surrendered.

Throughout the episode, we see glimpses of old Rick, with the beard and the cane. Hard to say, but I'm predicting no.

Elsewhere, Carol and Morgan lead a commando raid throughout this episode in order to rescue Ezekiel, and in doing so they basically wipe out the entire Savior garrison of The Kingdom with little to no trouble. In this vision, we don't see Carl at all, but track a visibly older Judith as she travels through the town. If you're still watching, and that didn't pull a tear, you probably have no heart. And most, of all, Carl bonding with his father "Thanks for getting me here", he said.

Carl reveals that the old man Rick moments have been his daydreams of how the world can be. Nothing is guaranteed, including a Eugene redemption. "When you lose those key members, it's such a big blow to the show, and to the fans, and to us that are there".
