    He's such a good big brother. I love that about him. He never complains about taking care of his baby sister, and you can tell that he loves her dearly and would protect her with his life.

    Yeah, he would act up, but what kid doesn't from time to time. That's why I never understood the hate he received. Carl is the best and Chandler is a little cutie...

    Oh those images are so sweet. Another one I like (I'll have to find it) is during his session with Deanna. Judith is so content to sit there w/him as he's explaining about Lori. He's come a very long way.

    I'm excited to see how his s/l is going to shake out. Even if it's initially tragic.

    I can't believe that some people actually thought that Rick would trust Judes with Jblah. I don't think so. The only people that would have Judes is Carl, Rick, or Michonne, and since Rick and Michonne are the lead and anchor, that leaves Carl because those two will fight to the bitter end to keep those kids safe. Judith is used to her big brother and he keeps her calm, something somebody else should have been doing for their kids. SMH. Carl is such a sweetie. I'm going to hate to see him hurt, but I know he'll come out the other side.

    Ok, this scene solidified Carl as a badass. I mean, he already was, but he's been kind of sweetie pie for the last couple of seasons, but when he did those scenes with Ron in the MSF, I was like, "You tell him, Carl." Everything Ron threw at him, Carl just matter of factly came back at him. Ron's like, "Your dad's a killer." Carl's like, "Yep, and so is yours. What else you got?" Lol! But when he took his gun and told him that, you know, I understand you're upset and all, but your dad was an asshole, I was so dadgum proud of him. He wasn't trying to hear none of his bs. Ron's gonna hurt my cinnamon roll, though:( Looking forward to Michonne katanaing his a**.

    Carl's underrated to some, but he really has been through a lot. And this scene I think was a defining moment for him and his love/belief in Rick. His guard was completely down. He was presented with a situation where his dad was on the the verge of death, and his lashing out moments before didn't matter anymore. He held on to his sanity when he lost his mom because his father was there. This episode was gold to me for Carl. I do believe he got back his dad and a mother figure in Michonne in After. Their influences have helped shaped him mentally and emotionally, so no matter what harm comes his way, I believe they (plus Judith and TF) will be able to pull him through and he'll continue to grow as a man in his own right.

    Chandler (Carl) looks more and more like Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori) to me as he grows up.

    Am I trippin?

    I'm surprised that there's not more people in here, but I loved Carl in 6.10. He hasn't made a complete about face like his GN counterpart after being shot, but I can definitely see a change in him. He seemed more assertive and confident in his actions. The scene where him and Enid hear people walking by (and it turns out to be Michonne and Spencer), she runs to hide in the trees while Carl just picks his gun up ready to react in whatever way is necessary. I'm very intrigued to see how Carl will be moving forward and it's lending some credibility to some people's spec.

    I'm here to give Carl some love because he rocked in this epi. I haven't read the GN but I've heard how he was angry and dark after getting shot in the GN. I'm actually glad that they didn't go that route because there was a time in earlier seasons when Carl was angry at his mother and father and he came through as bratty and I didn't like him that much then. It's good to have a mature, well grounded, thoughtful and loving Carl. He will probably have his moments so It will be interesting to see what they do with him going forward.
