Carl has come to terms with his own mortality, but for Rick, it’s the beginning of a nightmare.
“You’ve taken his family from him, so what is left?” says Andrew Lincoln (Rick) in a new behind-the-scenes video.
Even on his deathbed, Carl remains optimistic about what comes next. “Carl sees a better world. He sees a brighter future and a new hope,” says Chandler Riggs (Carl).
It’s up to Rick to carry out Carl’s vision: to survive and be a good person.
“If you’re not fighting for something, then why are you fighting? Knowing what you’re fighting for is the key to it,” says Executive Producer Tom Luse.
