We Haven’t Seen This Character In A Season, But They May Make An Explosive Return


It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Dr. Carson on The Walking Dead. After Negan killed the other Dr. Carson, the Saviors decided to take Maggie’s doctor back to the Sanctuary. But, only Dr. Carson can save Father Gabriel and Maggie Greene.

In “The Big Scary U,” Father Gabriel and Negan are forced to work together to get through a herd of walkers. Both men made it through, but it looks like something made the Priest sick during their escape.

Either Father Gabriel was bitten or is suffering from radiation poisoning, but either way, he’s going to need a doctor.

Who Can Save Father Gabriel?

Since Father Gabriel is sick in the Sanctuary, he’ll likely be the first one to get some help from Dr. Carson. While we haven’t seen the doctor since he was taken, he’s most likely doing well since he’s the only doctor they have now.

While he’s not a doctor who specializes in walkers or radiation, he should be able to define Father Gabriel’s symptoms. Presumably, the Priest got to close to a walker who got into the radioactive materials where Shiva died.

Hopefully, the Priest will survive this small attack.

Will Maggie Greene Get Her Doctor Back?

While Maggie Greene is still early in her pregnancy, she’s going to need prenatal vitamins and regular care from a doctor. During the first outpost attack, one of the Saviors destroyed most of the vitamins that Jesus and Tara found.

On the timeline of the series, it’s actually only been a few weeks since Maggie got pregnant. While it’s been a few seasons on the series, Negan killed Glenn a few weeks before the current episode.

King Ezekiel has said that he too has a doctor, but it’s not a specialist. Dr. Carson, on the other hand, is an expert in children. Surprisingly, he’s even got the equipment back at Hilltop.

With this in mind, Rick Grimes and company is going to have to attack the Sanctuary without hurting Dr. Carson. If Daryl Dixon had continued his attack, it’s possible that he could have gotten Dr. Carson killed by accident.

Do you think Dr. Carson will get out alive?
