The Walking Dead returned for the second run of Season 8, tonight. The show picked up from where it left off and gave a brief recap to one of the most heartbreaking moments when Carl was bitten while trying to help Siddiq kill the walkers.
It is a well-known fact in The Walking Dead universe that once someone has been infected there is absolutely nothing that can be done to save them. What is coming next is inevitable. In the midseason premiere, we saw Carl do a lot of things that he loved to do on his last day.
Speaking to Comicbook.com, The Walking Dead’s Chandler Riggs, the actor who played the role of Carl Grimes for eight years on the show, opened up about his send-off and revealed that he is happy with how it plays out.
“I was very happy with the way Carl ended up going out,” Riggs told the abovementioned publication. “After reading the script, it made me feel a lot more comfortable with it and really excited to really show off what I can do in this last episode. This last episode it was some of the stuff that I’m most proud of. It’s super, super exciting to finally be able to talk about it and have people see my work.”
The actor reveals that he is satisfied with how the goodbye is handled by the show and the crew. Also, he is grateful how his fans supported him.
“It’s more like an innocent way to go out. That’s kind of what Carl is really embodying in these last two episodes and really just kind of sums up Carl as a whole and proves that he knows that there is something after the war, it’s not just killing and killing and killing and killing. There’s got to be some sort of hope for Judith and for Maggie’s baby and everyone,” Riggs added.
Meanwhile, The Walking Dead actor Lennie James, who plays the role of Morgan on the show, shared a video bidding farewell to Rigg’s character. The video was shared on the official Twitter account of the show. Scroll down to watch it.
