I would like to see her weaponry and survival skills used for the good of the group
Lest we forget Carol used her weaponry and survival skills to save Rick & Co. at Terminus. And save Alexandria from the attack by The Wolves. And save Maggie and herself at the slaughterhouse from Paula and her friends. And save herself from those Saviors who tried to ambush her on the road.
Are we even watching the same show?
