I was just going to say... instead of a bedtime story, can we talk about Mom and Judith? 'Cause... I think you're right, I think it's ok to be sad; And even though mom's dead and it makes me sad and miss her lots to talk about her, I don't want to forget the good stuff either.
―Carl to Rick.[src]

"Issue 2"

On Halloween, Carl is approached by the Pirate Club lead by John Houck. John introduces himself, having been impressed by the story he heard from Ron and tries to induct Carl into their club. Carl declines saying he's looking forward to becoming another "soft idiot" living in Alexandria. John takes offense to this and shows Carl horrific things that have happened at Alexandria to prove they aren't soft. Carl is unimpressed. John asks him what he's done to make him such a careless badass, Carl responds saying he shot a cop in the neck and watched him bleed out, stunning the Pirate Club.
