    Eh. I guess I just have to see how this goes. I'm not a fan. I don't really hate the character, but I'm not interested at all especially how she relates to Carl...eh.

    Someone please, kill me now. :(
    Just when I thought we were done with her. Maybe she moved off to Hilltop. @Lyra_Verse, you will be my venting post when things get too tough.

    My first reaction was Carl is my sweet baby boy precious cinnamon role and I don't even want to think about this. Then I remember that he is about 16, so I guess some romantic inclinations are to be expected.

    I am alright with Enid, but I am not attached enough to care if she gets with Carl or someone else does. I didn't vote because I am not used to the idea of him liking girls enough to have a reasonable opinion about this. I need to adjust to the fact that he is growing up, and then witness him interacting with more girls in his age range before I can have a real opinion.

    I'd like to see Carl and Enid at least have the teenage equivalent of a fling, lol. I suspect he and Enid probably won't be long-term, but it would help him learn what it's like dealing with romantic feelings. Starter girlfriend, basically, and better still if they can actually bond and become friends out of the experience, like he and Sophia have done in the comic. He needs somebody who supports him but who is also "on his level," as a child of the apocalypse who can commiserate and share other age-appropriate problems.

    I don't hate Enid. She's annoying but she's also a teenager. With a little bit of growth she might shape up to be alright. Might.

    As far as Carl and love goes, I'm just going to look the other way, whoever it is. I understand that he's getting older but he'll always be that little boy who ran up to Rick screaming "dad" to me. So nope, not having it. What's shipping? What's a love interest? *puts fingers in my ears*

    I voted for find love with someone else. I can't stand Enid's turtle eating ass.

    If the Carl speculation turns out to be true and he becomes
    colder/darker (which I really don't want for poor Carl).
    Maybe finding puppy love brings him back, along with the love of mama Michonne.

    I don't hate Enid but I'm not a fan of the way they are writing her. It's like how out of touch old cranky men think teenage girls are like. I hope the episode 9 writing for her is better.

    I also think she's going to die but not sure when.

    I don't hate Enid and can see that a lot of attitude is a result of her traumatic backstory. And, yes, she's a teenage girl so there is built in annoyance there.

    I voted for Carl to remain single. I don't want the show to sexualize him like they've horribly done to his GN counterpart. I would like to see him heal and take care of himself first and to be mentally stable (and older!) before he has any romantic interests. If there are time jumps, I'd be okay with next season as long as he's older and is healthy enough.

    Carl is such a central part of this whole show. He's the reason Rick does what he does and they need to do right by him.

    Carl's about 15, I suspect it's "time" he develops a love interest. Any thought that no one has time for that (if Carl thought like that) probably died when Richonne happened. He's gonna think about it, it's around him, and personally I think it's "time."

    W/ that said... yall know my feelings for Enid. She works my damn last Black nerve. In saying that, I have to admit Carl works my damn last Black nerve too. I guess now they'll have to work my nerves together. I'm okay w/ a little fling, I suppose.

    Just God please in the name of EVERYTHING that is holy, do NOT let this go the comic book route. I don't even want any HINT to sex. It's teen porn until Carl and Enid turns 18, and I still won't want it THEN. It's just not okay.

    In my heart of hearts I'd like Carl to find someone else. ASAP. Now. Today. This second.

    I'm indifferent to Enid as a character. :unsure: As far as a relationship, Carnid is a thing now :confused:, but she is not THE ONE. Someone new will come along and rock Carl's world. :deuces:
