The Walking Dead: Season 6 of AMC Horror Drama TV Series Premieres
The Walking Dead returned this Sunday night to a new world of chaos, mistrust, and confusion.
Rick and his compatriots have taken matters into their own hands to protect the Alexandria Safe Zone.
With the new blessing of a grieving Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) the survivors have been given carte blanche over the future of the town and its inhabitants.
There’s a new sheriff in town, sort of.
What this really means is that central protagonist and complete jerk Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) can shape the future of the town and its inhabitants to his will. The rest of his crew will follow his lead, either happily or grudgingly.
The only dissent he faces comes from either the Alexandrians themselves, or the very gentle chiding of Morgan Jones (Lennie James.)
But, you guys, where the heck was Carl? The little guy wasn’t seen or heard from once during the 90 minute episode, and no one even mentioned his name. That can’t be good.
Could it just be that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) chose to keep his son out of harms way as he and the rest of the group attempted to move the walkers in the quarry, en masse, out of close proximity to Alexandria? It’s a possibility, someone’s got to look after Judith, after all. But as we watched so many Alexandrians struggle to get battle ready (Ethan Embry, we hardly knew ye!), doesn’t it seem like Carl (Chandler Riggs) could’ve been of some use?
