How Rick Grimes Became Darth Vader

You Have to let go of both The Fear of Failure AND The Desire for Succeess
(Which, not-coincidentally, also involves letting go of The Desire for Failure AND The Fear of Success)

Darth Vader is Not a Person;
Darth Vader is a Spirit

"Well, look at that. 
Dawn is breakin'. 
It's a Brand-New Day, Rick! 


I want you to think about 
What Could Have Happened... 

Think about What Happened -

And think about 
What Can Still Happen.

"Lonely, Solitary."
Carl Grimes is Wiser Than His Father — 
Because He Only Has One Eye

He locks his girlfriend Enid in a closet to keep her safe from an Evil neither could yet know or comprehend, and save her life while he and his Father and the warriors of The Tribe ride our and sally forth to face 

The Worst Thing in The World.

But immediately afterward, he lets her out, explains the reason for his actions, which she acknowledges and accepts.

And then, 
He lets her go Her Own Way, 

and thereafter 

Contends with her as an Equal.

Carl :
(Speaking Directly to his Unconscious Dad's Unconscious)

I killed three walkers. 


 They were at The Door. 
They were gonna get in, but I lured them away. 

I killed them. 
I saved you. 
I saved you.

I didn't forget while you had us playing farmer. 

I still know How to Survive.

 Lucky for us. 
I don't need you anymore. 
I don't need you to protect me anymore. 

I can take care of myself. 

You probably can't even protect me anyways. 
You couldn't protect Judith
You couldn't protect -


Hershel or Glenn or Maggie. 
Michonne, Daryl, or Mom. 

You just wanted to plant vegetables. 

You just wanted to hide. 
He knew where we were and you didn't care
You just hid behind those fences and waited for... 


They're all gone now. 

Because of You! 
They counted on you! 
You were their Leader! 


But now 
You're Nothing. 



(food bags rustle)

I'd be fine if you died. 


Damn it.

You shouldn't have risked it, going out there like that.

It's dangerous.

I was careful.


It's good that you found more food.

I found even more.
But I ate it.

What was it?

112 ounces of pudding.


I know we'll never get things back to the way they used to be.

What? I only clung to that for you.

For Judith.
Now She's gone.
And you, you're a Man, Carl.

You're a Man.

I'm sorry.

You don't need to be.
