5 Reasons THIS Character Has Been Named The “NEW Rick Grimes”… Yes, Really…


Carol is the New Cincinnatus

Similar to Rick in the season that focused on the prison, Carol is doing her best to stay out of trouble (like a farmer), but when the going gets tough, she’ll need to get to her normal self, starting next season. Similarly, Rick tried to farm but stepped back into a leadership position when his people needed him.

War Is Coming (and They Need Her)

War with the Saviors is inevitable. Carol is a survivor and she’ll do whatever it takes to save her people. This could mean pretending to be a wolf or gunning down dozens.

Glenn and Abraham’s Deaths Will Change Her Back

Carol doesn’t currently know about the deaths of Glenn and Abraham. More than likely, she’ll reunite with Daryl, learn the truth, and get back to the fight.

Daryl’s Vengeance Will Convince Her to Fight

Daryl and Carol will likely communicate on the next few episodes in February. Once he tells her how evil the Saviors are, she’ll have no choice but to step into a leadership role.

Carol Is A Survivor, Like Rick 

Rick is always doing what he thinks is best. If this means killing walkers, he kills walkers. If this means killing people, he’ll kill people. In the end, Carol and Rick will survive it all.
