I had to look up Clementine, so I guess not her.

My son played that game, and I suppose had I played she'd be my number one. As it stands, she's easily last.

So my ranking:

1. Carl. He's been central to much of the story so I guess he's on top.
2. Charlie. I really love how their building her arc. She's fulfilling much of the potential Enid could have had.
3. Enid. I think she had a lot of potential that was poorly used. I wish they'd done more with her early on, because now she's essentially finished her initial arc largely off screen.

I get why Lizzy isn't here, but I do want to give her a shout out. By relative skill according to age I put her with the kid who plays Charlie. They're doing great work.

I don't remember who Clementine is. Can someone clarify the controversy there?  (Was that the Governor's daughter maybe?)

I hope she isn't given a free pass for what she did and that they don't trust her easily, but i would go for Charlie... So far.

 

Enid is a bit a flat character, while Carl is a bit inconsistent. The showrunners occasionnally tried to make us believe he would go dark like his comics counterpart, and they constantly went back, not willing to commit to it, and not always bothering to justify how he would go back and forth. Ultimately, the character lack consistance to allow to put ourselves in his shoes, despite being involved in a lot of plots. Beside, his death episode was ultimately the showrunners talking through his mouth about where they wanted to go with their themes, instead of well... being a teenager that didn't want to die, and a character that wanted to do something with his life. Ultimately, we feel a bit for Rick, but not so much for Coral. Beside, the guy grew up ten years and the show apparently forgot to add those years in the show timeline. So Coral presence was a constant threat to suspension of disbelief.

 

Beside Enid, Carl and Charlie, (unless i am forgetting someone), all children characters were devices to further adult moral dilemma. Lizzie was a device for Carol and Tyreese, the Alexandria kid was for Carol, the Kingdom kid is for Ezekiel, Carol and Morgan, his elder brother was for Morgan and Richard etc... They were devices for others, but had little development of their own.

 

Charlie has to deal with thing she directly did, and has to be proactive in making amends. She isn't just there for the adults to be forgiven or offered flowers to look. But they better have long enough ellipses between season so the fact she grows up keep making sense. (if she makes that far)

Charlie is the best character, but I answered Carl because his character drove more story for longer. But I agree that Charlie is the best character, and the arc she's on is a great one.
