      I just hope he paid off all of that house, because I'm skeptical he'll find more acting work.


        Oddly though, Coral was in that flashforward of long-bearded Rick. So, maybe that whole thing is a hallucination. Or maybe this death/departure story is hype.

    Nah I think the next episode will be his last. I'm kinda wondering if Carl will live for most of the episode instead of dying right away. Like the next episode is Carl's one last day where he gets in everything he wants to do (pudding, Enid etc) before he kicks the bucket.

    I didn't see Carl in the flash forward or whatever. But my mind wanders during this show.

Coral has the main part of the conversation with Rick in that scene.

Rick comes into the living room.

Rick: You turned off the alarm.
Michonne: They can manage without you for one more week.
Coral (walks right in front of the camera): We're all playing hooky.
Rick: All of us?
Coral: Hey, I didn't put that song on. (Weird Al's "Another One Rides the Bus")

Pretty sure he's talking about little Judith (years older), who we see in a later part of the scene. She's playing hooky, too, and I guess likes Weird Al.

Wonder if we'll get a Coral ghost like we did with Lori.

Okay first you DO realize you are calling Carl, Coral right? \:\)

Seriously though, I do sense some off screen politicking in this. They seemed to indicate that he was on the show for more years to come and then this....

Was college going to interfere with filming?

Is the studio releasing him so that he can live his life? Noble, but somehow I sense that isn't the case.

Did the kid do something off camera that is perhaps best left a mystery?

Was the kid and his father looking for a bit too much money?

Or now that the kid is turning 18 perhaps labor laws, union rules, etc etc were going to kick in and start causing more interference?

Who knows?

What I am confident of is this: hope the kid invested wisely and pursues a good education at college because right now he is so typecast from the Walking Dead that if he isn't careful he WILL go the way of other childhood actors that were exploited by Hollywood and their parents who grew up and couldn't find anymore acting gigs.

Remember the show Different Strokes? Looks like the Willis actor has turned things around for himself, can't say the same about Dana Plato and Gary Coleman

Jodie Sweetin and the Olsen Twins from Full House, all still alive but could be considered damaged goods from their issues.

Anissa Jones from Family Affair, overdosed at age 18

Jonathan Brandis from Seaquest, another suicide issue

Sawyer Sweeten from Everybody Loves Raymond

Drew Barrymore

Lindsay Lohan

And more examples but I think the above are enough.

The Hollywood industry has absolutely no qualms at all about destroying or eating its young.
