The Walking Dead’s Rick and Carl Grimes — Their Best Father/Son Moments
The relationship between a father and son is complicated enough in our cushy, pre-apocalyptic world — but imagine trying to be a parent, or an adolescent, with hordes of zombies wandering around.
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) have an understandably complicated relationship, especially over the past four years or so, surrounded by walkers and fighting for survival. They've endured the death of Carl's mom, Lori Grimes, ;and the disappearance of baby sister Judith, and while the losses have driven them apart at times, in Season 4B they finally seem to have developed an inseparable bond — which leads to some of the saddest, most frustrating, most poignant, and sometimes even the happiest moments in the series.
Not only is Carl learning who he is and what he wants to grow up to be, the prospect of growing up at all is constantly crumbling around him. What's a dad to do? Click through the gallery for Carl and Rick's best moments, for better or for worse.
