#1. Can Carl somehow survive?
When it comes to creativity, fans of The Walking Dead were at their best in trying to figure out any way possible that Carl could not only survive being bitten but possibly be some sort of key to solving the outbreak.
Everything was out there. The theories included Carl being bitten by a human posing as a walker, a zombie having false teeth, immunity from the infection, and much more. But in the end, all those ideas proved to be just that: theories.
Carl’s farewell was a powerful and emotional one but wasn’t unexpected since the writing was on the wall after the big reveal at the end of the season 8 midseason finale where he showed the wound from the bite to Rick and Michonne.
Even though Carl couldn’t be saved, there is hope his legacy on the show will continue to live on despite being an important part of the popular comic book series who is still alive and kicking as of this publishing.
