    I don't know what the general reaction's been to Carl but, on behalf of every beta-male hating American alive:

    THANK GOD THAT SENTIMENTAL WEAK PUSSY IS GOING TO DIE :devilsmiley::devilsmiley::devilsmiley:.

    Carl could be a little shit but I'm disappointed he died like that. More so cause it's Ricks son, and now he's lost everything from his former life. Losing an only son must be the worst feeling possible. I hope he goes crazier than ever. I expect an all time high brutal blood bath by a psychotic Rick. No mercy on anyone. Evil Rick time.

    I can't wait until Simon gets his shit pushed in. And Eugene, that yellow piece of shit.

    I am generally ok with shows killing off major characters as long as it benefits the story.

    Unfortunately at this point I do not trust the writers of The Walking Dead to tell a coherent story. So I'm definitely not feeling good about this death.

    There will be an angry rant coming from me within the next few days about this show. I have some very specific complaints.

    Yeah, it was abrupt and felt like a stunt, and didn't make much sense—more like "who can we kill off that would be unexpected". I enjoy the show, but the writing, pacing, plot development has not been great for awhile.

    It was also kind of obvious to it was going to be Carl. He was not in hardly any of the other episodes and then they do a big promo about a shocking death.

    I don't get the big promos I am watching the show you don't need to tell me to tune in for something shocking. Let it just be shocking.

    I think the back half of season 4 and the front half of season 5 was my favorite stretch of the show. And I'm pretty pissed that they have thus far totally botched the Negan arc.

    I think one of the problems is that Scott Gimple is too obviously derivative of the shows and movies he is a fan of. You see it in the trash people (in the vein of Mad Max), the absurd death cliffhanger from the end of season 6 (reminiscent of the Jon Snow cliffhanger from GoT), and in this unexpected Carl death (feeling like he has to shockingly kill off characters you would think are safe as in GoT).

    The problem is he tries to force these things and doesn't even attempt to contextualize them within the world he is working with, or within the bounds of the story he is telling, that of The Walking Dead comic books. Mad Max-like people make sense in the world of Mad-Max. But at this point in the show, we are already introduced to absurd characters like King Ezekiel and Negan, who are cartoonish enough on their own, but then we are to believe there is an entire colony of people with Marfan's syndrome AND schizophrenia all living together in a fucking junkyard? The context of a world in which that type of group would exist has not been established in the world of TWD. They feel entirely out of place and completely unbelievable.
