I'll just leave these reactions to Glenn's death here
Damn, I'd shit my pants if I saw Carl looking this way at me.
Eff all this Daryl gon' be the last man standing. Carl will be IT. That look is terrifying.
In all my grief and horror, I didn't even notice. That is pure rage
One of the few saving graces of 7x1 is Carl's ascension into the badass that he is destined to become. While you know he was devastated by the deaths of his family members, he refused to let Negan have the pleasure of seeing his reaction. THAT made me do a fist pump inside my head and go 'Yes Carl! Don't let the psycho break you!' even as Negan was in the process of breaking his warrior father.
I cannot freaking WAIT to see what season 7 has in store for us Carl fans.
How about this exchange? (if someone has a gif set, please share!)
Negan had just killed Abe and Glenn and taken his father from what could have been his last joyride and now this murderer is beckoning him over for more fun and games:
No reaction, no fear. Just loathing. Be still my beating heart.
Here, Negan is removing his belt and asking Carl if he's a southpaw. Now keep in mind, Carl was almost raped just a few months prior and he is standing just a couple of feet away from a brutal killer. How does he react? Stone cold and with impatience in his voice
He might as well be calling Negan a waste of his time at this point. Again, another virtual fist pump for the kid.
Negan actually shows a brief moment of patience with Carl as he translates what a southpaw means. As much as my hatred for Negan burns right now, there may be a buried ember of humanity in his black soul and this is a hint for scenes between him and Carl in the future.
I love this shot because it shows the height difference and the murder weapon resting right in front of Carl. Again, no fear, no tears. Just plenty of eye contact and a steady reply.
Other than Richonne and Rick's rise from the ashes of his despair, I am most looking forward to 'Cold Carl' confounding Negan and turning his 'new world order' upside down and backwards.
Carl is everything.
Carl is in the midst of being triggered:
Carl is a badass. Love that boy .
If they don't give Carl a good arc this season, I'm going to lose my shit.
That's all I'm going to say...
That is one of the looks that captivating him and gave me hope he will have his arc. CAN'T WAIT
Carl is going to be so bad ass! Looking forward to his time to shine!
Oh, my baby boy is going to be epic! I am so looking forward to Carl getting his arc from the GN. He's been on the back burner for far too long. He's about to unleash his inner monster. Michonne's a monster. Rick's a monster. Grimes Family 2.0 is going to be the catalyst for Negan's downfall, each in their own way, but Carl's part is key. I'm going to be in front of my TV like Gus as it all unfolds throughout the season.
I've been so excited for Carl when I watched that episode. He's gonna wreck shit, and I'm gonna enjoy every minute of it.
All I can say is yeesss motherf@#*ing SERIAL KILLAH CARL.GRIMES!!!!! I was so damned proud of my baby boy! Oh, I saw "THE LOOK" Carl was giving Negan after Glenn. Even through my hysterics and ugly crying, I saw that bit of glorious goodness from Carl. And then when he eyeballed him again after Negan asked if he was a southpaw and Carl gave much shade, all annoyed AF , and I was just " That's my boy!!!" Oh, yes, as a Carl fan, Carl he is going to be off the chain with Momma Michonne! Carl gave ZERO fu*cks about Negan and the look in his eyes, oh Carl is going to be borrowing Rick's Murder Coat soon. Carl saw how far strong Daddy Rick went and endured in trying to protect TF, he saw how Rick submitted, was humiliated and was broken by Negan, ALL to keep TF alive. He won't forget Glenn/Abe. Carl...will.. not.. forget.. any of this. Negan just released the "monster" and I cannot WAIT!!!! Grimes 2.0, yeah baby!!
Oh yeah, no matter what goes down, Carl will loathe Negan for life. There are just SO many little nuggets in the interactions between TF and Negan. They would not fall apart into pieces for him immediately. Again, the reason he went all postal on them. They are all down but not out.
