No, given what we've seen in the show, and given what Kirkman said, there is no ambiguity. Any that he's now created would be, as noted before, basically lying.
Lori is still in the credits because she's either in flashback or, like Merle last season, in a dream or hallucination.
They are going to be "dealing with" the concept of a post apocalyptic teenager who's killed at least two parental figures in his life (Lori and Shane), seemed to be considering killing a third (Rick) and what its like to raise that kind of kid in that kind of world. That was already hinted at, both last season and this season when Carl was eagerly about to chow down on a can of dog food. The kid's in real danger of becoming a psycho or feral or both.
Most likely you're right, but I'm allowing for the possibility of surprises. Besides, they kept up the ambiguity when Lori's body wasn't where we last saw it. For whatever
It's not unrealistic to imagine Carl closing his eyes, squeezing the trigger, and walking away without looking, is it?
