Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), his hair, and that crazy southern accent (Caaah-rul) have been front and center in The Walking Dead universe since its television inception, but the Feb. 9 episode “After” forced us to consider a different reality — could the show go on with Carl (Chandler Riggs) as its lead?
