This one, however, is an eye-opener.
In the show’s Season 7 episode, “Something They Need,” which aired in March, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group have invaded the Oceanside community when walkers attack. Fortunately, they are able to hold them off. But fans noticed something funny about Carl (Chandler Riggs).
He might have been aiming a gun with his missing eye.

Carl loses his right eye in Season 6, so to be aiming with a big hole in his head is, to say the least, impressive. But was he?

“The Walking Dead” executive producer David Alpert is here to try to (eye)patch things up.
We spoke to Alpert at New York Comic-Con on Friday and asked whether he heard about fans claiming that Carl was aiming with the wrong eye. Alpert said he’d heard about it, but he thinks the internet has it wrong.
“I don’t think he is,” said Alpert, “but it’s pretty funny.”
He continued, “I definitely heard that, and I’m sort of like, ‘Yeah, it doesn’t make any sense.’ But it’s kind of funny.”
According to Alpert, it’s just the fans getting riled up about nothing. But are they mistaken?
If so, they’re wrong here ...
