Your feelings about Carlos

posted by ChytraQuoza on - last edited - Viewed by 1.7K users

Hello guys.

What do You think about Carlos? In my opinion he is a very good father, and he cares more about anothers than himself.

When Carver was breaking his fingers, the only thing Carlos tried to do was to stop her dauther looking at him - "Sarah, don't look!" "Everything gonna be ok". He tries to cheer the group, and ensure them that everything will be fine.

In the first episode I thought that he would be a faggot and didn't like him, but now I think he's the most friendly character from the 'cabin group'.

IMHO he should be the leader of the group, but he don't wan't to, because all he tries to do is to protect his daughter, and he doesn't have time to protect all the group.

What do you think about him? Would he survive the whole season or not? Share!

  • I like him. I hope he makes it.

  • Obviously, Carver knows Carlos very well. I have a feeling that Carlos will live through season two or at least till episode 5.

  • He's a good guy ! He saved Clem's life and took a hell of a beating and still didn't say where the rest of the group was, He may not be the most pleasant guy to be around but he cares about his people.

  • Whether it was intentional or not TT did a good job making us think he's an idiot. But I respect him for all that he did in ep. 2. If he wasn't so worried about his daughter "ceasing to function" I think he'd kick a little more ass.

  • Well it looks like Carver clearly hates him and Alvin the most out of everyone else from the cabin group, because of something they did or said before. I'm afraid Carlos will die in ep.4.

  • I think Carlos was the victim of a writing fumble in Episode 1. They didn't intend for him to be extremely unlikeable, but that's how he came across. The whole locking-Clem-in-a-shed-to-die thing was a big turn off. His later outright scolding Clem for 'manipulating' his daughter, without the slightest hint of an apology or sense of shame for doubting her about the dog bite and locking her in a shed, only clenched it.

    So they made extra efforts to make Carlos more sympathetic this episode. Same with Rebecca. In both cases, it feels a bit bizarre that they had a turn-around so quickly, but they've certainly become somewhat less reprehensible characters.

    • I agree with the idea that Carlos might have been a poorly written character.

      Carlos was unlikable for me in Episode 1, and I don't think the attempt to make him likable in Episode 2 was working out for me considering how strong of a bad first impression he has made with Clementine, especially since his hostility towards her for daring to ask for his daughter's help when no-one else would.

      • What really irks me about his 'solution' to the Clem situation was how contrived it all felt.

        Not sure if Clem was bitten by a dog or a walker? Then let her stay in the cabin with someone to watch over her until it becomes clear she isn't going to die and reanimate. Tie her down to a bed until that point, if you're that afraid she'll turn, but surely any doctor worth his salt would have to realize locking her overnight in a cold shed with an untreated dog bite would be quite likely to kill her even if she's telling the truth. What Carlos proposes is like the proverbial medieval witch trial where you're thrown in a lake and judged innocent if you sink and drown but burned at the stake as a witch if you float and live.

        Then Clem stitches herself up and, suddenly, Carlos no longer has to wait until morning to decide that she genuinely wasn't bitten by a walker. Geez, Carlos, if you were aware that symptoms of a walker bite would be obvious long before morning, shouldn't you have been checking on her periodically instead of waiting the whole night? Is that too much to ask?

        And to top it all off, he then has the enormous brass balls to chastise Clementine for asking his daughter for help without apologizing for his own poor judgement or showing the slightest sense of guilt about what he almost did to an 11 year old girl. By that point, my opinion of Carlos was pretty much at rock bottom. It'll take a long time and a lot more redeeming behavior before I start trusting or liking him.

  • I think Carlos is a good guy. I think he'll die, but then again, I think everyone is going to die. I think he'll die in episode 4-5. I hope he gets more attention. A lot of it falls on Luke and Nick.

  • Carlos is a mixed character. He seems to be an intelligent, pragmatic man...but also painfully oblivious to the fact that his daughter needs to be prepared for the horrors of the apocalypse...though Lee was like this until he began teaching Clementine how to defend herself.

    He also appears the most antagonistic towards Carver...which stands to reason that while the two of them are pragmatists, Carver is willing to go to extremes to ensure his leadership, while Carlos cares more about people in general.

    His treatment of Clementine in the first episode, I feel, is more attributed to how the group must have lived when living in Carver's group...which looks to have been a dictatorship, carrying out brutal actions. I think when Clementine showed the group how untrustworthy they were, they started to realize they were behaving like sinister people, and not good ones.
