Carl Grimes is the character that joined the show when Chandler Riggs, the actor who played the role was just a kid. The character was an annoying kid, but we’ve watched him make the evolution from the awkward boy to a real tough young man in “The Walking Dead” series. The son of the main character, Rick Grimes, we pay tribute to the character who recently died on the show, much to the chagrin and dissatisfaction of hard core fans.
Here are the five top Carl Grimes scenes from the series.

Carl stands quietly listening as Negan goes on his rant, until he begins hurling insults at him. Grimes maintains his calm demeanor despite Negans efforts to rile him. Carl explains that there are families with children inside, as though that would move the heartless Negan. He offers himself as a sacrifice and if somebody had to die, Carl told Negan that he would be willing to become the one to do so, in order to end the violence. He confronts Negan and asks him if this is who he planned on becoming in a tense scene that seems to cut to the quick of his tormentor.
