The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale ended with Carl Grimes revealing a walker bite moments before the credits. The preview that followed for the show’s February return showed Rick putting a cross in the ground referencing the character death.
Carl Grimes’ exit from the show came as a surprise to Walking Dead viewers and cast alike who viewed the character as untouchable. Fans have had a few months to accept the inevitable is arriving.
Riggs’ appearance on Xbox Live Sessions will arrive at a time where his character is caught in a limbo between current cast member/alumni. The walker bite has foreshadowed his final active character appearances on the series, though Governor style dream hallucination returns are always possible.
