!!!!Due to the AnyoneCanDie nature of the show and quickly moving plots, only spoilers from the current/most recent season will be spoiled out to prevent entire pages of whited out text. These spoiler tags will be removed upon the debut of the following season, and the character bios will be updated then as well. Additionally, character portraits will be updated each half-season with the release of an official, complete set from AMC. If you have not seen the first seven seasons read at your own risk!

* BreakTheCutie: She was determined to prevent this from happening to Carl, but eventually has to accept that Carl must be exposed to the horrors of the world if he is ever going to survive it.
* BreakTheHaughty: Lori is rather self-righteous for the first two seasons of the show, given her being the "First Lady" of the group and often ordering the others around. She also dithers when it comes to resolving the LoveTriangle between her and Rick and Shane, and later is enraged when Rick reveals he killed Shane in self-defense and refuses to let her come near him. This destroys their relationship, and Lori is practically begging to make amends with Rick, and admits that she feels she deserves to have been laid low.
* CharacterDeath: Lori dies in season 3, when she tells Maggie to perform a Cesarean section on her so Judith can be born, even knowing it will kill her.



* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Suffers through several minutes of highly painful labor, and has Maggie slice her stomach open without any form of anesthetic before she finally passes out, and is put down by Carl.



* SacrificialLion: In Season 3, when she tells Maggie to perform a Cesarean section on her so Judith can be born, even knowing it will kill her.

to:

* SacrificialLion: In The major casualty of Season 3, when she tells Maggie to perform a Cesarean section on her so Judith can be born, even knowing it will kill her.whose passing changes Rick and Carl forever and leaves them with Judith.



* WhosYourDaddy: Lori understandably isn't sure if the baby she's carrying was fathered by Rick or Shane.

* WhosYourDaddy: Lori understandably isn't sure if the baby she's carrying was fathered by Rick or Shane. In Season 7, Rick is certain that it's Shane's child.


Added DiffLines:

* FaceDeathWithDignity: In the Season 7 finale, [[spoiler: he accepts that Negan is about to kill him with Lucille, and though he's clearly sad, he takes calming breaths and closes his eyes, ready for the end if it means the others can keep fighting back. Luckily, Carl is saved when Shiva and the Kingdom come to the rescue.]]

* DemotedToExtra: Downplayed. While still a prominent character, Carl has not had as many independent {{Story Arc}}s compared to his comic counterpart. This starts to change by Season 6, however.

* OutOfFocus: He only appears in three episodes in Season 7B, and is relegated to the background for most of his screentime.



* ShipTease: With Enid. [[spoiler:They share a kiss in 'Go Getters' before Carl goes on what might be a suicide mission to take out Negan.]]
* TagAlongKid: Mostly served as a child to be protected, but later TookALevelInBadass.

** In the Season 6 finale, Negan notices that Carl is the only member of Rick's group besides Abraham not shaking or crying in terror. He pegs him as a future serial killer in the making, implying that the apocalypse has hardened Carl to the point where he doesn't react like a normal child would to gruesome violence.

Added DiffLines:

* ForcedToWatch: Invoked. Like the rest of the group, he is forced to bear witness to Negan's wrath at the lineup at the end of Season 6 and beginning of Season 7. He later tells Enid that he forced himself to watch the entirety of the affair, [[spoiler: and didn't look away when Negan brutally killed Abraham and Glenn,]] so he would never forget what Negan did to his family. Almost every other member of the group tries their best to not look at the horrors, but Carl forces himself to watch to the bitter end.


Added DiffLines:

* ManlyTears: [[spoiler: Notably when Glenn is being killed by Negan, it's the first time the entire night that he finally breaks down and cries.]]

* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: Carl's comic counterpart wasn't subjected to see his childhood friend Sophia die, nor having to shoot his dead mother so she won't reanimate. In contrast though, he so far has not had to go through the death of his little sister.

* HairColorSpoiler: Averted, maybe even defied. She's blond, while her mother and her two possible biological fathers are all brunettes. Same goes for her (possibly half) brother. In the comics she's Shane's child, but TV!Judith shares Rick's blond hair in the comics, which WordOfGod blatantly said as a hint that she may be Rick's here in the form of MythologyGag. In Season 7, however, Rick opines that she is in fact Shane's child.

* PromotionToParent: The entire group has this enforced upon them almost immediately from her birth, since at the time Rick was grieving the loss of her mother. Her most prominent non-Grimes caregivers have been Hershel, Beth, Carol, and Tyreese. Michonne has also stepped up to the plate as a surrogate mother to both Judith and Carl since Season 4.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: WordOfGod implies that she is Rick's child in the TV continuity, not Shane's. Not that it would stop Rick from loving her as his own anyway. Rick then outright states in Season 7 that he believes Judith is Shane's, but followed it up with the the previous reason.

*** Justified in that, let's face it, she's a toddler who's barely out of the infant stage, and has no clue what's going on. The cast and crew know full well you can't have violence and yelling around her, as she'll become afraid herself, force them to stop filming, need to be reassured, and it will also make her very apprehensive on the set, as she doesn't know when people will start yelling or why. Note that even extras in zombie make-up are never around her so that she doesn't get afraid (rapid jump cuts are used to give the appearance that zombies are close, when in reality she's nowhere near when they're being filmed). Tellingly, in her first scene with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he was very careful to give Lucille to Chandler Riggs before approaching her very calmly and reassuringly in order to pick her up. Morgan and everyone else ''knows'' how careful you need to be when working with children.
