Last night’s Walking Dead mid-season premiere put Rick, Michonne, and Carl in the spotlight, and it was the youngest of those characters who put people off.

During Rick and Carl’s scenes in Sunday night’s episode, the father and son would frequently spar over every little topic. Where to stay, what to eat, how to kill zombies, and more. The scenes were tense and made viewers feel like they were sitting in on an awkward day with a broken family.

Though it’s clear Rick has lost his mojo – so Carl does have reason to lecture him – the son was particularly annoying throughout episode 9 because of his childlike behavior. He wished his father dead. He refused to eat. He made stupid decisions when it came to conserving bullets, even when he’s been in this apocalypse setting for a while and should’ve learned his lesson by now.

Viewers took to Twitter to complain about Carl:

… And the tweets kept coming.

In Carl’s defense, he is a young teenager who’s been thrown into this horrible world without a proper childhood. He has no one around his age who he can bond with, but we can’t forget there were a couple of candidates at the beginning of season 4 before they died. Then again, even at the start he was more interested in taking on an adult role than spending time with kids.

So what can the show do about Carl? He could grow up a little bit. The end of the episode 9 – when he realized he didn’t want his father to die – may’ve been telling about how he’ll act in the future. On the other hand, it’s hard to argue he made progress in growing up when you consider that he was proud of his zombie kills despite being overpowered and nearly eaten.

Next week’s episode looks like it’ll only focus on Daryl and Beth (and maybe answer if she has Judith?), so if you’re sick of Carl and Rick, you’ll at least get a break this Sunday.

We’d like to see Carl become more mature and have a greater respect for his father now that he’s been in this apocalypse setting for a while and everyone he has loved has had brushes with death. We know it’s hard for a kid to handle, but he’s in a unique situation where lessons need to be learned in order to survive.

… But can we have more Michonne?

Has Carl become too annoying on ‘Walking Dead’?

Check out our recap in our previous article.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
