It's just one crisis after another on The Walking Dead, but after five and a half seasons, I'm used to it. Glenn may be safe for now, but is Ron going to kill Carl on The Walking Dead ? In Sunday's episode, he got shooting lessons from Rick, stole bullets, and started following Carl around with a gun. What is his deal? Could this even be how Carl loses an eye, like he does in the comics? Watching a child shoot someone's eye out is just what I need to get in the mood to watch A Christmas Story for 24 hours in a few weeks, so it's fitting.
One would think that Carl is savvy enough at this point to suspect that the person following him is up to no good, and then defend himself. I'm not too worried. However, that doesn't mean I'm looking forward to hearing Ron's reasons for stalking the sheriff's son.
Seriously, is this Degrassi Community School or something? What kind of violent teenage drama is going on here? Carl saved Ron's life when the Wolves attacked. Is this possibly because of Enid? We know Ron's jealous that Enid seemed to prefer Cal over him, but she skipped town. That girl clearly is not interested in being in a love triangle with the two of them. Could it be because Carl's dad killed Ron's dad, then kissed his mom? I'll never understand boys.
Luckily, if you can call it that, the herd breached the walls of Alexandria — so Ron's scary mission might have to be put on hold. He can put those bullets in a walker's brain, where they belong. Potential spoiler alert: In the comics, Ron dies when the herd attacks. The AMC series does not necessarily need to adhere to every detail of the comics, and has not in the slightest, but the fact that Ron has already armed himself and has some kind of vendetta to carry out could lead to an interesting scene in the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead.
