[Warning: huge, huge spoilers lie ahead, so if you’d rather not ruin the second half of this season’s The Walking Dead for yourself, go and do the washing up, or take out the bins, or look at a tree or something.]
[No, really, go do something else for the next two minutes.]
A Russian poster promoting the next instalment of excellent zombie thriller The Walking Dead may just have let loose the gory fate of young Carl Grimes, son of Rick. It’s a real eye-sore for anyone looking forward to the series return on 15 Feb.
Yep, looks to us like poor old Carl might be losing his right peeper somewhere along the way.
Before die-hard fans start yelling, "but he loses an eye in the comics", remember that in the original books he ends up eyeless (and half-his-headless) thanks to a shooting accident with Deanna/Douglas, and Deanna/Douglas is dead already in the TV series.
So what could possibly have happened? A shooting accident with Deanna/Douglas from beyond the grave? Did it get eaten by zombie ants? Is he a pirate now? We’ll just have to cast an eye towards FOX next week.
