Yeah I’d forgotten all about the college talk, he was supposedly a key figure in the next phase in the comics so wonder who’ll take his role, Enid’s a popular guess that I’ve heard.

He said in an interview college had nothing to do with it, he was going to work around it and it came as a complete surprise, his dad is furious with the show runners as they led him to believe he’d be around for longer

Yeah I was shocked also. I remember the last episode where he got mobbed by those zombies while saving Saddiq, wondering if he got bit. That’s my answer.

Doesn't make sense to kill Carl off. Losing Glen and now Carl is significant as they are original cast. Can't replace that sort of loyalty and sentiment.

Would have been more sense to kill off anyone who arrived within the past two years

Walking Dead - Season 7 and 8 (spoilers)

Post by Fuifui Bradbrad » December 13, 2017, 11:20 am

Scott M Gimple explained how apparently in the comics there’s a flash forward where Rick and Negan are somewhat civil, but doesn’t explain why.

So he thought he would deviate from the comic and thought what would make most sense would be for Carl to go down this road, and become somewhat of a humanitarian. Try to convince Rick in his dying moments that killing all the Saviours won’t solve anything.

Makes sense in that way. Rick won’t listen to anyone as much as he would listen to Carl.

Bigger twist than I expected. I was thinking Rick was going to rage out and kick Darrell out of the group, or kill him for wrecking the plan.

In the comic Ricks group defeat the saviors in a gun fight. Negan is taken captive and was kept in a cell for years. He is set free by a teen with a hatred for Rick, but Negan kills him anyway.
Negan then fights side by side with Dwight in a battle against the Whisperers where lucille breaks.

Yeah this was the quote I referenced
Speaking about Gimple's justification for Carl's death, Riggs elaborated: Scott was trying to figure out how to bridge the gap between Rick not wanting to kill Negan and Rick also really wanting to kill Negan, which he does right now [in the show's story]. Scott's way to get around that was to make Carl this really humanitarian figure and person who could see the good in people and see that people can change and not everyone out there is bad.

Can’t find the exact article re: the flash forward, but it’s out there..

Yeah I did. I thought it was really good. Kind of felt a bit old school TWD.

With Lincoln and Cohen moving on this season, I don’t know how much longer I will be able to watch it though. I feel one way or the other, this will be the last season
