They. Did. That. Effectively one of the best episodes they've done in a long time, and perhaps most infuriating is that it showed they actually can tell three-four parallel story lines in one episode, despite spending seven seasons refusing to do so. The show has suffered the last couple of seasons for following the comics more or less verbatim, and this will undeniably force the television show to finally take a step back and become its own entity again. Chandler Riggs has done an incredible job with Carl, but this was probably one of the best things that could have happened to the show.
