CARL’S DEAD…SAY HELLO TO THE NEW CARL
It was not lost on me that as we watched Carl die the show was presenting to us the new replacement Carl in the form of Henry. Henry has all of the Carl hallmarks: he always wants to be involved in grown folk’s business; he doesn’t listen to what anyone tells him to do; he loves to run off on his own without letting anyone know where he is going; he likes to kill people (as evidenced by his killing Gavin with no remorse). That checks off all the Carl Grimes boxes as far as I am concerned. It will be interesting to watch if the show is going to try and re-work the existing Carl storylines from THE WALKING DEAD comic book with Henry since a lot of the stuff that follows the “All Out War” storyline in the comics focused heavily on Carl and without Carl (or a suitable Carl substitute) being available I don’t see how those stories can be told at all.
