“When the snow falls, and the white wind blows” by Buscaosotroarbol
In one of his escapades from Rick’s tight watch, Carl stumbles upon a wolf caught in a bear-trap. He is too much of a cinnamon roll to abandon it there. The wolf doesn’t even say thanks, because, you know, wolves can’t speak, and he doesn’t tell Rick about it either because, also, you know, he would just scold him. So he forgets about it, but years later he and his survivor family are brought to their knees before the leader of the Saviors, and the wolf still remembers.
