Rick Grimes has left the ship in season 9 of The Walking Dead, but why didn’t he had a vision of Carl ? It tells you everything.
It’s been a few days now that the episode 5 of season 9 of The Walking Dead aired on AMC and Rick Grimes has left the series. In “What Comes After”the serious injury of Rick resulted in visions that have led him to see Shane, Hershel, or Sasha. The important people in his life who have all had an impact on his career and on his survival. But since Rick has often repeated that he was in search of his family, one might find it strange that Rick had no vision of Carl. After all it is for his son that Rick has saved Negan and built a network between all communities. Carl had to be very present in his mind while he struggled to survive. However, Angela Kang, there was a specific reason for its absence.
Rick and Carl
“When people are near death, they sometimes have the impression that they see someone they know or they don’t know that helps them to survive, to continue to move forward. And we had these three characters, Shane, Hershel and Sasha, who were filling the empty emotional that Rick was trying to fill the time. But the whole journey of Rick revolves around the quest of his family. And I said that if he had seen Lori or Carl, he would have said, “Ok, I fulfilled my mission, I found them, I can let myself go and die now””. Furthermore, the showrunneuse of the season 9 of The Walking Dead has also explained that Rick was looking for his family, and he found these people who became her family as their survival as a whole. A reasoning that takes place given the survival essential for Rick to be present in the 3 films to come.
