The Walking Dead fans took to social media to say goodbye to Carl last night. Here are the best fan reactions to The Walking Dead midseason premiere.
The Walking Dead fans knew that the midseason premiere was going to be emotional but man were unprepared for how the images of Carl’s last hours and the raw grief of Rick and Michonne would affect them. The fans’ grief mirrored the characters grief in many ways. Millions of fans have watched Carl grow up over the last 8 seasons of the show and have looked at Carl as a son or younger brother. Losing him was rough, and that pain will be there for a long time.
Thankfully Twitter was there to give fans an outlet to vent their many emotions and connect with other fans who were also grieving for Carl Grimes. Some fans had complaints, because of course they did. But overall fans were paying tribute to Carl Grimes and to Chandler Riggs.
There was also a lot of praise for the amazing acting of all three actors playing the Grimes family. Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira and Chandler Riggs all delivered amazing performances as they brought Carl’s journey to an end on The Walking Dead.
The controversial death has been a divisive moment in the series for fans. Some fans say that they are done with the show now because they are so upset over the decision to kill Carl. Others are cautiously optimistic about the future of the show now that a new showrunner, Angela Kang, will be taking over in season 9. But during The Walking Dead midseason premiere a huge number of fans put aside their anger at the show and focused on paying tribute to Chandler Riggs and to Carl Grimes. Here are some of the best tweets in response to last night’s midseason premiere of The Walking Dead:
