Things We Saw Today: We Found Carl


Entertainment Weekly is here to let us know that The Walking Dead‘s Chandler Riggs has successfully navigated himself further through the treacherous shoals of puberty. (io9)

KatLay is back with another installment of her adorable on again off again comic about superhero girlfriends, and you should read it. (Tumblr)

And I leave you with a Slave Leia cosplayer with a Yorkie Slave Leia cosplayer. Hey, pooch, at least you’re not dressed up as Salacious B. Crumb. (Amy Ratcliffe)

    Carl scares me. I mean, if you had an adult who acted as creepily willing to kill as Carl does, the group would probably take measures against him. But Carl is just a kid, so nothing is really done about his trigger-happiness. That’s kind of terrifying.

    I think her Yorkie as Salicious would have been inspired.

    Trigger happy? IIRC, he only killed one person. It’s not like he’s using people for target practice out of some perverse need to kill. And in fairness, it’s not exactly a normal situation. Almost everyone in the group has had to do things that they wouldn’t have done before the zombie apocalypse. Carl acted against what he perceived to be an immediate threat to himself and the others. This was shortly after seeing a dangerous individual which his father failed to disable come back and indirectly cause the death of his mother. In his eyes, he is acting to protect the group. And it hasn’t gone completely unaddressed. Hershel mentioned it to Rick, who spoke to Carl about it. I have no doubt it is something that will be raised again in the upcoming season.

    I was being kind of hyperbolic- I do agree with your analysis. Trigger-happy was the wrong word.

    I was thinking more of comic book Carl, who also hasn’t really killed many people, but I just remember being really creeped out by. He takes the whole ‘do ANYTHING to stay alive’ thing a bit too far, like to the point of telling people he’ll kill them if they get in the way IIRC. He doesn’t WANT to kill people, but he’s kind of jaded and paranoid to the extreme. It’s possible (probable?) that he’ll grow out of it, but it’s also easy to see him becoming much crueler if that doesn’t happen soon.

    It’s not really Carl’s fault, because everyone in the zombie apocalypse has changed, and none of the adults are really able to do enough to emotionally stabilize him. I just really hope he doesn’t get desensitized enough to (possibly) become a cold-blooded killer because of that. I honestly have no idea where the TV show or comics are gonna take Carl’s story.

    Although that would be sad, what a great thing to address in post-apocalyptic stories. Take Ellie from Last of Us. She has no problem harming someone in terms of survival because she doesn’t know any better.

    Carl (and kids his age in this situation) is in an interesting place. He lived most of his life in normalacy and then when it all goes to hell, he has to adapt to that. Part of that is watching and listening to the adults around him and the adults he encounters go from ‘normal’ to survivalist. Things that would have been taught to him as wrong before are now compromised in the matter of survival.

    I don’t forsee Carl becoming cruel, but I definitely see him as becomng someone who can think quick on his feet and will be the one to make the tough decisions (such as Rick having them cut off hershel’s leg to save his life. Hershel’s medical experiance is indispensibl and they needed him, but I honestly think if it was Becky(?), he might have let her die). The group has people who will continue to distill right vs wrong in Carl, Hershel being one of them, I don’t see Daryl letting Carl go off any deep end and I think what with all that has gone on with Rick, Daryl will be someone who will help Carl keep it together and I think Little Asskicker will help preserve Carl’s ‘humanity’ s2s.
    Obviously this is more nuanced than I’m able to go into but I think you bring up some really interesting points in survival in a post-apocalyptic scenario.
