The Walking Dead Pretty Much Confirmed [Spoiler] Isn't Going to Die

All Of Carl's Best & Worst Moments On 'The Walking Dead' Before Being Bit

The second half of the show's eighth season will begin on AMC Sunday night.

But Carl saves his most important parting words for his pop.

After all, this is an aging show that too often has shown signs of creative exhaustion, and a year ago experienced a substantial ratings decline. The answers just seem to matter a little bit more now.

Following Carl's fatal bite from a rogue walker, the beloved teenage character was forced to give a heartbreaking goodbye to his father, Rick, his best friend, Michonne, and little sister, Judith. The cliff-hanger will be resolved in Sunday's sombre episode, Honor. With Carl's death, the show found a voice that has been scarce of late, both in Carl prodding his dad to reconnect with his humanity, and Rick wondering if that's feasible, while lamenting what the youth sacrificed in his short, violent life. It instantly set off an social media firestorm, with fans grousing that they had been "blind-sided" and "betrayed".

Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) from The Walking Dead.

I think it's safe to assume that with this out of the way, the rest of season 8 will be the conclusion of all out war with The Saviors.

"God I hate those frickin' zombies". (See: Glenn's dumpster fake-out in Season 6).

Instead of getting all emo or flying into a rage, Carl takes the news with a unusual sense of serenity in Sunday night's mid-season premiere, "Honor". Much to the chagrin of the author Robert Kirkman.

Still, there were fans who were completely caught off guard.

Unsurprisingly, Andrew Lincoln wasn't the only member of the Walking Dead team who had a hard time dealing with Carl's death. "You have a beard, it's bigger and grayer".

Rick and Michonne left Carl in the building, breaking down when they heard a gunshot inside. "Sometimes kids gotta show their parents the way", he told her. Was there anyone that you wish that he had gotten to say goodbye to?

Meanwhile, the viewers who wanted Gimple out have achieved a victory - sort of.

Also, you can like CarterMatt on Facebook in the event you want some other news regarding the AMC series. The move means that Angela Kang, a veteran writer on the series, will run the show beginning with Season 9.

Chandler Riggs himself has shared a couple of upsides to no longer having a place on The Walking Dead. I think I read somewhere that some characters are going to be taking on some of the stories that Carl had [in the comics] so it will be interesting to choose to see how they do that.

And Riggs delivered a rave-worthy performance.

After that, who knows?

The Season 8 mid-season premiere served two purposes: it speaks to choices and the impact they can have on your chances for some kind of future in this zombie eat zombie world, and works as an incredible sendoff for Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs). And AMC will continue to draw a seizable audience to its biggest show.

"The Walking Dead" has been an ambling shadow of itself, at times feeling as if the series - immersed in a wartime footing - has drifted away from the attributes that made it such a breakaway hit.
