Seems like a good day to remind people that no one can touch Daryl like this..
Except for Carol that is..
And that this kind of touch is different than say a pat on the back the back or a hand on the shoulder. Its a type of intimate touch of which he flinched from early on because no one else in his life before that ever got that close without hurting him. Until Carol. And to this day I still haven’t seen anyone try to do this with him.
Touches from Carol are different for Daryl.
And it’s also good to remind you that Carol was cool to pretty much everyone else and and put an act with them.. But when Daryl showed up on her porch..
She breaks down and hugs him, showing more emotion than she’s shown with anyone else in quite a while. Because around Daryl she can’t and could never bullshit. He sees right through her. He’s one the person who has the power to crash right through the walls she’s painsakingly put it up.
Carol simply has no protection from Daryl and the way he looks at her.
Its different with them. Just is. And anyone who dosen’t want to acknowledge that, there’s this river in Egypt you should visit.. just sayin..
