Judith's future

Judith, a baby born during the apocalypse, has a really hopeful character since the start. In the comics, Judith died along with her mother, Lori, during the Governor's siege on the prison, we think that she isn't going to the leave the show anytime soon. With Carl's death and Rick's departure, the show gave her character an opportunity for development and potentially take on the mantle of a lead character of the show in the future.
