Warning: There are spoilers and speculation ahead about “The Walking Dead”
“The Walking Dead” fans finally got the answer to the biggest mystery of the season Sunday night; however, there was another big scene near the end of the episode that had fans talking.
You know, this one, where troubled teen Ron had Carl in his crosshairs with a, presumably, loaded gun.
Fans immediately took to Twitter to express their concern.
Is this the end for Carl?
Maybe — but don’t count on it.
Warning: There are major spoilers ahead!
Other fans were quick to notice may be hinting at a huge event from the comics.
Keep an eye on this kid, Carl.

In the comic series, Carl winds up getting accidentally shot (in the eye!) after zombies overrun Alexandria.
However, he’s not shot by Ron. Instead, Carl is accidentally shot by the community’s leader, who in the comics is known as Douglas. Douglas’ counterpart in the show is Deanna.
Though it seems impossible, Carl survives the wound to the head, only losing his eye.
I wouldn’t be surprised if next week’s episode ends with Carl getting accidentally shot.
You know what just happened on Sunday night’s episode?
A wall has come down and the zombies have entered Alexandria.
That means if Carl is going to lose his eye, it’s almost time.
