In Season 8, Carl Grimes was killed after being bitten in the side while defending by Saddiq (Avi Nash). The episodes with his death were difficult to watch. Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne’s (Danai Gurira) devastation was soul-wrenching. It was also difficult to see other characters mourn.
Yes, Carl Grimes dies in Season 8 Episode 9 – titled “Honor” – which originally premiered in February 2018. Summarizing the episode, we find Carl and Siddiq fighting walkers in the forest.
Ultimately, Riggs was dropped from The Walking Dead, not because the actor was ready to leave or the character ran out of stories, but because former showrunner Scott M. had to give Gimple Rick some motivation to keep Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) around.
During the season 8 mid-season finale episode, “How It’s Gotta Be,” Carl revealed that he was bitten while trying to help Siddiq (Avi Nash). This came as a shock to fans, and in the following episode, Honor, Carl’s ending story unfolded.
Ron, furious that his family is being killed, pulls out a gun and shoots Carl in the eye before Michonne kills him.
Rick was in a bad place, and Negan tried to rub it in by making him cut off Carl’s hand. Rick begged and begged Negan to take his hand instead. Negan, satisfied that Rick was sufficiently intimidated, let everyone run off with limbs intact.
Said character was actually killed later, making Carl’s death completely pointless. Pepperidge Farms remembers and so do I! Carl was actually a great character. He was one of the characters who underwent the most drastic changes in The Walking Dead.
In the midseason premiere Honor, we learn the cause of Carl’s untreatable zombie bite when a flashback to the forest scuffle shows a walker sinking its fangs into Carl’s abdomen. The episode ends with Carl committing suicide to avoid succumbing to his wound and being revived.
When Carl finally says goodbye in The Walking Dead season 8’s Honor, he’s probably 15 years old, even though Riggs was in his late teens himself. In the middle of The Walking Dead season 6 there is a mini time warp of ambiguous length that could potentially push Carl towards 16 in his final episode.
Carl drops his gun, which Ron picks up and points at Rick, causing Michonne to impale Ron with her katana, but Ron accidentally shoots Carl’s eye out.
Carl’s First Sentencing is the ninth episode of the fifth season of Shameless US and the 57th episode overall. It first aired on March 15, 2015.
Scattered storytelling revealed plots that happened simultaneously. With a rounded estimate of 3.5 years since The Walking Dead began, coupled with the 10-12 year old, the assumption is that Carl Grimes’ age at AMC is between 13 and 17 lies series.
