We’re only 4 weeks away from the midseason return of The Walking Dead; there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for those of us who have been going through serious withdrawal since the Season 7 went on hiatus in December. As excitement builds, there’s no better time to delve into another Walking Dead fan theory!
Making the rounds online is the “Old Man Carl Theory”, which postulates that the entire series is actually a flashback being told by a much older Carl Grimes (played on the TV show by Chandler Riggs). While this flies in the face of my personal hypothesis that Carl may be nearing the end of his story arch (in other words, he’s doomed), there’s definitely enough to make compelling argument here. Check out the video below from MOVIEidol to investigate this theory further.
So what do you think? Could The Walking Dead be a flashback, a story being recounted by a much older Carl Grimes? Sound off in the Comments section!
