It’s all just a big mess, isn’t it?
Yeah, I think the 9×01 scene was what he meant.
Keeping my fingers crossed, but my hopes down. I do love that she specifically called them soulmates, that definitely means something… I just don’t know exactly what.
She’s definitely saying Caryl isn’t dead. But who knows what the plans really are. Maybe it’s just a way to try and get people to keep watching, or maybe she’s actually planning an endgame for them. Time will tell. The question is, will the show even survive long enough for us to find out…?
One can only hope.
Everything from Talking Dead made me feel like he’s team Caryl – like he always has been. (Or team keep them both single for now but have them pining for each other knowing they belong together… which is also team Caryl…), Anyway, I disagree that he’s been avoiding acting like he wants Daryl with Carol. He’s always said he wouldn’t mind it happening. People tend to focus on the times he’s said he likes the way Daryl is already (single), but what they forget is that just as often he adds that while he wouldn’t mind Daryl staying single, he also wouldn’t mind Daryl and Carol happening. So I think he’s still on the same side he’s always been, and I do think he has at least a little bit of an issue with Carol and Ezekiel. It just very much seemed so during the whole TD episode; like he thinks Carol is Daryl’s girl (which he has actually said quite a few times in the past), and I got the feeling Melissa was feeling the same way – both in what they both said during TD, in the way they physically kept being all over each other (way above what they normally are) and because she
recently admitted to (as a viewer) seeing the same connection between Daryl and Carol that the Carylers see
BTW, did anyone catch Norman poking Melissa at the end? It looked like he was trying to tickle her.
Yes, he asks if she’s going to bring them to the Sanctuary.
Daryl: You gonna bring Henry and the king with you?
Carol: *shakes head* I haven’t told them yet.
I’m convinced they have to say “oh Carol and Ezekiel are super happy together”
because of contract. After all, that’s the story they’re oficially trying to sell apparently. Like I said, it makes no sense that they’re telling two very different stories for Carol in the same episode. And Daryl’s reaction literally makes no sense if he doesn’t have feelings for her. Based on spoilers they’re taking the Carol and Ezekiel path for way too long, but again – what’s the end goal with that? Is it just a plot point during season 9 to put Carol in a specific place? Or maybe to put Daryl in a specific place? It’ll be interesting to see if I decide to keep watching.
Carol says “don’t” before he even asks, but after he asks she says:
Carol: Put that thing away. It’ll snag on everything, and I told you not to ask me that.
Ezekiel: I know.
Carol: Especially after something like this. And this is not happening on a horse. [it’s after he almost dies and they’re on horses]
Ezekiel: *laughs* I love you, and I always will. I’ll keep this ‘til you’re ready.
Carol: *silent – doesn’t say anything back*
