At the end he said, “I forgive you, I don’t forget,” but there is an incredible…
I have a tremendous amount of respect for her. And you know, I did get it. That’s the post-apocalyptic world. Decisions are tough, it’s pain-staking, it’s torturous, you know, but you gotta learn to live with some of these things. And if I don’t forgive, then, and I destroyed her, then that’s another shot of not being able to start again, or build community. Trying to start over.
She’s a valuable human being, so I would hope that his emotions…you know, it’s one of those things, you can’t let your emotions get the best of you.
Because I don’t know if people…if they didn’t see it…but I certainly felt her pain, you know? It wasn’t like, just easy, walk in the park, or she was just trying to be violent, or you know, trying to be egotistical…she really wanted what was best for the community.
But so, having gone through that experience [deciding to kill Lizzie] together, I was always able to see her humanity all along the way when we finally got back together. So I think that was the thing that allowed me to forgive her. To hold on, to not let the rage take me.
”—Chad Coleman, on Tyreese’s relationship with Carol. (x)
“He’s insane at this point. He’s pissed. He’s trapped. You don’t cage a wild animal like that and not get scratched. So, it’s - he’s ready to kill everybody right now. And, you know - you know, he went through that journey with Beth, and that changed him a bit, you know. And the Carol story’s changing him a bit. Rick and… just - it’s - everyone! There’s so much going on right now. It’s hard to pinpoint one thing.”—
511. At Luna's wedding, the whole of the front row of seats was reserved for apparently no one. Harry went up to her at the end of the service. "Luna, who was meant to sit there?" Luna turned her glassy eyes on him. "Oh, they did sit there. In a spiritual way, I suppose," she said. She pointed out the seats one by one. "Right. That one's for my mother, those are for your parents because I think I would have liked them, that one is for Sirius, the one next to that is for Professor Lupin - they were friends, weren't they? - and that's for Tonks, then Fred Weasley, then Mad-Eye, then Professor Dumbledore, then Professor Snape. I hope they liked the wedding." She smiled and waved into what was seemingly empty space, before prancing off into the crowds. Harry had never felt so touched before.
“Part of my character choices were because of the wardrobe I was given. Carol’s colors in the first season were drab, which communicated how she thought of herself, as meshing into the background. In the second season, as Carol begins to blossom, Eulyn introduced a little bit of color and freedom of movement. She also taps into the actors’ own styles. I wear headwraps all the time, and she loved it, so she put Carol in one.”—
So, your hilarious romancenovelthingy gave me a new headcanon. Daryl loves cheesy harlequintype novels and he rips the covers off, so people don't know what he's reading. Somehow Carol finds out, and in the evenings they start to read aloud the juicy bits to each other, for laughs at first. But then...
I give this headcanon my most enthusiastic stamp of approval:) Because I mean, lbr for a second. HOW SEX-STARVED MUST DARYL BE? And can you even imagine him reading some of that stuff, and then at some point not only having to admit to Carol that he reads it, but ultimately having her offer to uh, reenact some of it with him?
Carol: “Hmmm, wow. Did you read page 148?” Daryl: “Nah, haven’t gotten there yet.” Carol: *hands him the book* “Well, read from there to page 151. Tell me when you’re finished.” Daryl: “Okay but … why?” Carol: “I’ll show you.” *muffled giggle* “Just trust me?” Daryl: O_O
