The season 6 preview special was très pointless. Moving on! In Save the Last One, Shane gives himself the Buzzcut of Instability, and Lori asks Rick to tell her why Carl should live.
“[Lori] goes, “Tell me why it would be better another way.” And I’m like, why are you putting the onus on Rick to help you not be miserable and not be a cynic? Isn’t it obvious why it would be better? Because Carl is alive right now, and you guys love him, and Carl himself would not want to die? Like, why does she need him to say it plainly for her?”
“Like, why does she need him to say it plainly for her? Are you serious? He’s the boy’s father. It’s bad enough that you’re his mother, and you’re saying this, but you need his father, his biological father, who loves that boy so much and is so proud of him existing, you need him to spell out why it would be better for Carl to live.”
