After surviving more than seven seasons of walker ambushes, food rations and fatal games of eeny, meeny, miny, moe, it seems that Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) has finally met his end on The Walking Dead.
In the final scene of Sunday’s mid-season finale, Carl revealed to Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) that he had been bitten by a walker at some point in the time leading up to the Saviors’ attack on Alexandria.
Past characters have been able to sidestep death by walker-bite by amputating their bitten limbs. However, Carl’s wound is on his side, meaning his fate is all but sealed.
Even showrunner Scott M. Gimple seemed to admit that while Carl still has an imprtant role to play, he isn’t long for the world of TWD. “It will play out as bites play out on the show,” Gimple said during a post-episode appearance on The Talking Dead. “I’m just focused on the fact that right now Carl is alive and he has some business to attend to… But that is a one-way ticket.”
Carl is one of the few remaining original characters on The Walking Dead and as Rick’s son, has often served as a grounding presence for the show’s lead. “Finding some way forward, that’s more,” Carl explained to his dad in a flashback that hinted at what was to come in Sunday’s episode. “That’s something more. That’s how it’s gotta be.”
The Walking Dead will return for the second half of its eighth season in February.

The four-disc The Final Tour: Bootleg Series Vol. 6, due out March 23rd, collects five concerts the legendary trumpeter and saxophonist performed together as part of their Spring 1960 Jazz At The Philharmonic European Tour: Two shows at Paris's L'Olympia Theater on March 21, two shows at Stockholm’s Konserthuset on March 22nd and their March 24th gig at Copenhagen's Tivolis Koncertsal.
The shows would mark the final time Coltrane served as Davis' sideman – ending a five-year tenure that bore classic LPs like 'Round About Midnight, Milestones and Kind of Blue – before Coltrane embarked on his own career as bandleader. The Final Tour features many of Davis' greatest hits at the time as well as cuts of the then-new Kind of Blue.
The Final Tour concludes with an audio recording of Coltrane's 1960 radio interview with Swedish DJ Carl-Erik Lindgren. The set, authorized by both the Davis and Coltrane estates, also features in-depth liner notes courtesy of Grammy-winning music historian Ashley Kahn.
The sixth volume in the Bootleg Series is available to pre-order now in a variety of formats in addition to the digital and CD releases, including a single LP vinyl edition that spotlights the Copenhagen concert. Subscription service Vinyl Me Please will exclusively release a 2LP version that captures both Paris shows from March 21, 1960.
