I’M GOING TO END UP WRITING A CARYL BIBLE. This is going to be one big mess… Okay.. here I go!
Where Daryl realised that he has feelings towards Carol: Season 3x16 Welcome to the Tombs:
In this scene, we see Daryl grieving over Carol in the place where she supposedly ‘died’. Thinking that she might be in the room opposite as a walker, he plays with her knife for a bit before getting angry and preparing himself to kill whatever was in there . It turned out that Carol was in there alive. Note how everyone was also close to Carol but they didn’t grieve like Daryl did, indicating that he probably felt more than 'friends’ towards Carol.
Throughout season 3, we witness little things which show their relationship strengthening and growing deeper:
Notice in the gif above that Daryl gets all flustered and shy when he and Carol laughs? JUST LOOK AT HIS FACE UGH *inhuman noises*
Season 4 also showed a huge development in their relationship:
Season 4x04 Indifference: When Rick banished Carol and later informed Daryl about it, Daryl was clearly agitated by Ricks decision: “You couldn’t have waited till we got back?!” (showing that it wasn’t Ricks decision to make) “I could’ve handled that” “That ain’t her” (Showing that he knows Carol a lot more than Rick does. Notice a similar parallel in season 5 “You don’t know me” .. “Yep, you keep telling yourself that”.) ?
Dat’ headrest, guys. This scene also showed how much Carol meant to Daryl. Daryl was prepared to go to Tyreese to sort everything out and we all know that wouldn’t have ended well. If the Governor didn’t attack at that moment, I’m sure Daryl would’ve gone out to search for Carol; despite not knowing where to look. Again, Daryl probably realised that he has feelings for Carol. Carol was taken away from him again but what hurt even more was that the one person he saw as a brother took her away.
However, I don’t think his feelings for Carol solidified until Season 5.
This right here is called Love. ^
After their reunion, Daryl was ALWAYS by Carol - trying to comfort her and making sure she was okay.
In the bed scene, Daryl layed next to Carol and moved his pillow to be closer to her. This shows that he is comfortable around her and also wanted to be close to her. Daryl wouldn’t do this with anyone else so it shows that he must see Carol more than a friend.
Lets not forget this. ^
And we also shouldn’t forget the way he reacted when Carol got knocked down by the car. He was screaming to get to her and would’ve probably ripped the police men’s heads off if Noah didn’t stop him. ——————————
With Carol, I believe that her affection towards Daryl began way back in season 2 when he searched endlessly for Sophia - nearly getting himself killed in the process.
Season 2 “Chupacabra”.
The kiss on the forehead was probably more gratitude than lust but it clearly shows how much she appreciated Daryls existence - “You’re every bit as good as them. Every bit.”
It wasn’t until Season 3 that I began to believe that Carol developed a crush on Daryl. In 3x01 Seed, she jokingly flirts to Daryl “Wanna screw around?” before laughing at his embarrassment. Notice how she was the one to bring him food? Anyone could’ve done that but Carol must’ve volunteered to bring it - possibly to spend time with Daryl.
However, the biggest indication that Carol had feelings for Daryl was her reaction when Rick informed her that Daryl had chosen to go off with his brother, Merle. Season 3x09 The Suicide King
Carol was clearly distraught but remained positive - Carol remarks "Daryl has his code. The world needs more men like that.“ Carol probably wished she spent more time with him, so when Daryl does return, Carol and Daryl have a lot more scenes together than they did previously. She visited him in his cell and explained that Merle isn’t good for him, despite him being his brother. She also tried to make him realise how "far he has come” and Merle shouldn’t get in the way of that.
A deleted scene also revealed how much Daryl meant to her and that was a scene between her and Merle in season 3. “Mess with Daryl, I will slit your throat while you sleep.” You wouldn’t threaten someone like that in defensive of a mutual friend. I would personally only threaten someone like that who was a threat to my boyfriend.
Little signs also showed that she was developing feelings for Daryl
Notice how she held onto his hand for sometime before letting go? Carols feelings for Daryl were definitely a lot more clearer than Daryl to Carol in Season 3-4.
We didn’t see much of Carol at all in Season 4 and season 5 showed that her head is too messed up to even process her feelings towards Daryl or anyone. This is when Daryl must step in like Carol did for him back in Season 2. Carol is in a extremely dark place and that hug/cuddle Daryl gave her in 5X01 still shows that she still means a lot to him, despite what she did. Carol probably only feels comfortable around Daryl so only Daryl can comfort her and give her the support and love she needs.
Conclusion: I believe Darys feelings towards Carol began in Season 3x16 Welcome to the Tombs and Carols feelings towards Daryl was shown in Season 3x01 Seed.
However, I believe that they don’t know what they’re feeling as they don’t know love as we know it - due to their horrific past of abuse. They’re yet to discover this and I hope that when they arrive at the ASZ in 5B, they have a chance to discover their feelings. They know something is there but they don’t know what the feeling is. I really, really, REALLY hope 5B explores this.
OKAY THATS ENOUGH OF THIS. FUCK I’VE WRITTEN A CARYL BIBLE.
