During “The King, the Widow, and Rick,” three characters were nearly killed because they made foolish decisions. Rosita and Michonne went off into the unknown with injuries and Carl Grimes decided to trust a stranger.
Luckily, all three of these characters survived their circumstances, but the calls were too close for comfort. Each of the three went back to their respected communities with open wounds and blood-soaked gear.
But they all learned something from their experiences.
Carl Grimes, Michonne, And Rosita Nearly Die
By chance, Rosita and Michonne stumbled upon two Saviors who were planning to save the Sanctuary. When their vehicle came upon music in the middle of nowhere, they decided to investigate.
Despite their lucky find, there was a reason these two were told to stay home and rest. When Rosita and Michonne got in a fight, neither was strong enough to fight off their attackers without a little help.
Rosita found an RPG and Daryl Dixon saved the day in the end.
Taking On New Responsibilities
For Carl Grimes, his initial mission was more purposeful. For the past few episodes, Carl has been looking for a man who needed his help. Eventually, he found Saddiq in the middle of nowhere, killing walkers.
Carl decided to use his father’s three questions: how many walkers have you killed? How many people have you killed? Why? In this scenario, Carl discovered that his new friend needed some help and had a touching story.
However, when Carl Grimes decided to help out his new friend, it nearly cost him his life. Since Saddiq wanted to honor his mother by killing all of the walkers he could (to free their souls), the duo decided to take out a few that were eating a deer.
But when things got too rough, more walkers arrived and both nearly died. Carl Grimes pulled out his gun in the knick of time and saved himself. Deciding that Saddiq was his responsibility, he noted that it was time to head to Alexandria.
Do you think that these characters learned anything from their near-death experiences?
