Erfworld seems to have fairly set dead/undead standards - if it lives it can be croaked, if it is croaked and you have a croakamancer it can be uncroaked.
I don't think we've seen anything yet that suggests a native of TV is immune to that process (in this update Tony croaked, Caesar thought he might croak), it is just their appearance and certain behaviors that bring undead vampires to mind, but TV isn't a nation of Uncroaked.

I guess Don knows roughly where Wanda and her forces are, so Caesar wouldn't be in any danger of decryption by going and fighing Carpool.

Assuming he isn't, and popping the heir was just bad timing on his part, Caesar's loyalty is still going to take a heavy hit regardless. Don seems too smart to do things on a whim, so I'm inclined to believe this was planned.
Well, it is assuming TV has the resources Caesar wants to be using against Carpool. It seems a Don might be facing:
1 - Caesar, current heir and very useful warlord, believes the war against GK is a waste and that is is wrong to being helping Jillian so much.
2 - Caesar also wants to be doing far more against Carpool and securing TV cities on the flanks
3 - Don knows, thanks to Bea, exactly what threat GK poses the entire world, and it is great. And dealing with it requires a lot of planning and focus, as well as cultivating allies like Jillian.
It could be he is trying to utilize finite resources to the best of his abilities. As it turns out Caesar was able to win in Chockula, close as it may have been, so apparently he did have just enough resources. Keep Caesar as happy as possible, but give him enough rope to hang himself if his loyalty is broken upon the Carpool issue. But I agree, I think Don, possibly like Charlie, is playing a long game, as opposed to just amassing troops like the rest of the RC seems to be doing (well, Jetstone).
