OK KO! Episodes 17-20

Know Your Mom

It was time for another good Carol episode! This one came together for us very quickly, and ended up being a very simple and sweet story about KO and Carol’s relationship. It was originally written with Rad and Enid as KO’s sounding boards, but we thought it would be fun to bring in Brandon and A Real Magic Skeleton for a little change of pace. I love the way Ryann and Parker expanded their appearance into a funny running gag that ended up helping to further cement their personalities moving forward.

In the outline we handed out, the Kactus Krew were not given a lot of specifics. We had figured they would have an old school mob/organized crime type theme (but cactus). When we saw the first pitch with Succulentus portrayed as a nu-metal character, I was shocked. I remember being literally on the floor laughing,  a visceral physical reaction to how unexpected this take on the episode was. It was another situation where I was so unsure- can we do this? It is too insane? Is it “on-show”? All we knew for sure is that we all laughed, so we decided to go with our gut reaction and support it 100%.

Jonathan Davis coming in to do the voice was another amazing development. He was the nicest guy in the world, and such a pleasure to work with! This especially felt great after my parents wouldn’t let me see KoRn in concert when I was in 7th grade. Take that, mom and dad! 


We’re Captured

We aren’t the first show to do a play on the sitcom “double-booking” trope with a villain, but we knew it would be super funny with our heroes and Lord Boxman. This was an incredibly enjoyable episode to write the story for. I remember hanging out in the writer’s room with Ian, Dave and Erin just cracking ourselves up with how silly the episode starts and it just continues to escalate in ridiculousness from there. This was around the time we were first conceiving of TKO, so it was a helpful reminder that the show was in no way backing down from comedy.

The concept for this story was shared with the board artists after the premise stage (I think in a big writing meeting, but it could have just been during lunch or something), and Ryann immediately took an interest in Professor Venomous. She then shared with us some early design concepts and ideas for Venomous (and his minion, who we’d later call Fink), and we were able to integrate them into the final outline. As with Know Your Mom, we knew the role Venomous was going to take in this episode and the series as a whole, but he was really given life thanks to the strong and specific POV of the board artists working on the episode.

This was also a great early display of Boxman’s family dynamic with the robots. Darrell and Shannon weren’t even originally in this story, but Ryann and Parker REALLY wanted to include them. Parker pitched us the “daddy? may I wear my costume?” scene, which is something he observed in his real life. We were unsure, but we were willing to give him a chance to sell it in their pitch. I’m definitely glad we did!

One final thing to mention about We’re Captured is that our heroes lose in this episode. Isn’t that fun?

Face Your Fears

Face Your Fears was conceived as a crucial stepping stone toward several key mid-season episodes, but it actually ended up being produced after TKO because we needed Dave and Haewon to tackle Legends of Mr. Gar first. This was the luxury of knowing that OK KO! would premiere with a month of episodes. We were working so far ahead that we could produce some episodes out of order and then make sure they aired IN order. (More on this in a future post…)

Anyway, this episode provides a ton of important character development that ties to our big “mid-season finale” episodes, Plaza Prom and TKO. Gar manages to speak a sentence to Carol, which he repeats in Plaza Prom, and we get another hint of some darkness within KO. Among many other things! The concept of hopping through a bunch of character’s linked fears in order of their plug-in connection is pretty complicated, but the board artists did an excellent job making it feel exciting and cool. Dave and Haewon were very excited to tackle something with this level of depth, and it shows in every scene. Figuring out how much to reveal in this episode was a challenge, and I’m very happy with the final result.

Special regards to our design team for their work on this episode. All the different fearscapes are so distinct and so gorgeous. I was stunned when I started seeing these designs come in. In my opinion, this was the most impressively designed episode so far! Of course, since this episode they’ve continued to top themselves many times over. :)

Everybody Likes Rad?

I’ve alluded to this before, but we took extra care to make sure that all the episodes  leading up to TKO were very balanced in terms of subject matter. We mapped out the whole half-season in advance, with many episodes simply listed as “ENID 1”,  "CAROL 2" or “PLAZA EVENT” before we knew exactly what the stories were. We knew that Enid and Rad would have an equal number of episodes, and Everybody Likes Rad is “Rad 3”. Much like “Enid 3” (You Have to Care), this is one of the first times we allowed an episode to spend some real time without KO as a main focus.

This episode is a combination of two ideas. The first half comes from a pitch by Erin, and the second half derives from a concept Ian and I were sitting on from the previous summer. Neither “Rad’s Viral Video” nor “Rad Goes Hollywood” felt like they could sustain a whole episode, but we realized there was a story to be told about how one could lead to the other. It worked!

We ended up with something I’m really proud of. Geneva and Mira did a fantastic job making a hilarious episode that deals with sophisticated themes in a nuanced way. At every stage I was impressed at how far we were able to push this episode into unexpected tonal territory while still being 100% “the show”. I especially love the melancholy-but-warm final scenes, which have caused “volcanoing” to be a term I commonly use in conversation.

story time

so I’m currently in the midst of watching a lot of shows that have been recommended to me through fandom, two of these shows that are currently running are riverdale and supergirl. I’m noticing the pattern that in most wlw ships that I’ve come across usually involve a brunette lesbian and a bisexual blonde. 

This has been on my mind for a while and was brought to the forefront when I realised I was trash for both supercorp and beronica. So whilst I was at college I was surrounded by friends and I was making a few comments about it, see the majority of my friends are LGBT and so I only had to bite my tongue a few times when slowly explaining this to the straights™. Then this girl joined the conversation who was my friend and asked me to give a few examples (she doesn’t watch as much tv as I do) and I came up with this list:

  • Betty and Veronica (Riverdale) - before I realised V likes boys too
  • Kara and Lena (Supergirl)
  • Clarke and Lexa (The 100)
  • Cosima and Delphine (Orphan Black)
  • Alex and Piper (Orange is the New Black)
  • Xena and Gabrielle (Xena: Warrior Princess)
  • Emma and Regina (Once Upon a Time) - not sure about this one
  • Brittany and Santana (Glee)
  • Emily and Alison (Pretty Little Liars)
  • Carol and Therese (Carol) - also not sure

As I was going compiling this list I realised that I didn’t understand why this seemed to be so common? Also my other friend was giving me a strange look whilst I was talking about all this and it took me a minute to click. This girl that I was giving examples to was someone I used to have a thing with, we were never exclusively a couple, but it was fairly obvious through our actions and body language that we were more than friends, thankfully she didn’t catch on but this girl is a blonde bisexual, who was part of a subtext-built ship with me, a brunette lesbian??? in real life too??

so let’s make a list of the ways in which carol fans have been blessed today
  • carol and tara in a scene together, and what looks to be a long one, since they’re clearly waiting for something
  • carol gazing at a flower with a lovely, inscrutable look on her face and yes i realize it may be a cherokee rose but y’all have met me and i’m here to deal in hard facts okay
  • carol sexily and stealthily sneaking into a mysterious building while packing heat
  • carol teaming up with daryl, tara, and morgan to get shit done
  • carol looking illegally gorgeous as she watches daryl ride away on his bike
  • carol in closeup looking illegally beautiful yet again but when does she not
  • carol chill af as hundred of walkers stroll under the overpass she and tara are sitting on
  • carol strolling past daryl’s bike like the motherfucking boss queen of the world that she is
  • carol telling jerry and henry to cover their ears while she raises a gun twice as big as she is and doesn’t even blink
  • carol most likely giving zeke the sassiest face ever while shiva growls like a mofo
  • carol diving behind a car to take cover from a hail of bullets

we haven’t had this much carol in a trailer like, ever? (and if i’ve missed anything by all means please jump in and add it!)

seriously i just need to document how blessed we are is all.

It’s a hot, bright day in Alexandria. The sun was beating down in the small community as the people worked in the baking heat, drenched in sweat. As you trotted down the steps of your shared home with Abraham and Rosita, you see Daryl Dixon, helping load up for a run. His toned arms were glistening in the sun with sweat, his angel wing vest hanging loosely on his torso. You bite your lip as you take in his appearance. 

You had been with the group before Rick joined. Since the very beginning you had an attraction to Daryl. Something in the way he moved just made your body ache for him. But, life being its unfair self, you two ended up as friends and nothing more. You had hoped and prayed every time you saw him for him to grab your face and kiss your lips and hold you, but obviously that wasn’t happening any time soon.

“You know,” Maggie said, joining your side, “staring ain’t gonna do nothing.”

Exactly! you’re right. I’m gonna go up to him right now and profess my love to him and we can run off into the sunset together,” you said sarcastically, rolling your eyes as Maggie laughed next to you.

“Don’t think thats the best idea. You wouldn’t make it a mile without being fronted by walkers,” she giggled.

“Well there goes my plan, guess I can’t do anything about it now,” You said shortly, walking up the steps to your house. Maggie followed you and grabbed your arm, stopping you.

“Well, talking to him might be a start,” Maggie said, serious now.

“Now you see my problem. I can’t just talk to him without making a fool of myself,” you sigh, running your fingers through your hair.

“I can solve that,” Maggie smirked. You opened your mouth to protest, but Maggie was quick. 

“Daryl!” Maggie said, hopping down the steps. The man turned and started walking over to you as you crossed your arms tightly over your chest and walked down the steps. Your eyes focused on a pebble on the ground as he got nearer. 

“Hey, I’m not feeling that great, so I don’t think I can go on that run. But my good friend Y/N here has offered to go in my place,” Maggie said, a smile playing on her lips. Her hand patted your shoulder as you took in a breath and looked up, meeting eyes with the beautiful man. 

“Yeah, I can go in Maggie’s place. Only if its okay with you. I don’t want to-” You rambled on as Maggie’s grip tightened on your shoulder. You got the message and finished, “overstep.”

“Yeah, sure. We leave in a few minutes.” He said simply and nodded, walking away.

As soon as he was far enough away, you turned to Maggie, throwing her hand off your shoulder. 

“What the fuck was that!” You said, nearly yelling.

“Hey you should be thanking me!”

Thanking you? I’m going to embarrass myself!”

“I can’t help that I’m not feeling well,” She said, forcing herself to do the fakest cough you have ever seen. You playfully push her shoulder.

“You should go get ready. I don’t want to keep you from him,” Maggie smiles. You shout a profanity at her as she walks down the steps and walks away.

You walk into the house and into your bathroom. You look in the mirror and splash some water onto your face and run a hand through your tangled hair. You walk down the steps and grab a gun from the armory, then head to the car. 

Spencer is standing outside the car with Carol at his side. Daryl approaches from a building and asks what the plan is.

“Well we just need basic supplies and I was told there was a place a few miles South that will have what we need,” Rick explains. You all nod, then open the door to the backseat, and crawl in. You sit next to Carol behind the driver seat and Rick drives with Daryl in the passenger seat. You can’t help yourself when you see Daryl sitting there, messing with something on his crossbow. Carol coughs and you look at her. She’s smirking at you, but you just bashfully smile and look down, your hair hiding your flushed cheeks. 

When all of you reach the spot, you see it is a run down supermarket. You get out from the car and Rick loads his gun and speaks.

“I say we split up,” Rick says, giving Daryl a second list. “I’ll go with Y/N, Daryk go with Carol.”

You groan on the inside, but nod on the outside. Fate just wasn’t on your side. Your gun is at the ready as you enter the store. You and Rick go to one side of the rather large store as Carol and Daryl go to the other side. 

The first thing on Rick’s list was blankets, so you head to that part of the store, which just happens to be next to the clothes. You look around, making sure there are no walkers, and grab a bag.

“Since we’re already here, I’m going to grab some new clothes. Im running low because most of my clothes have been ripped. Can’t seem to remember why,” You say, and Rick laughs along with you.

You start throwing random shirts that look your size into a bag and you see a necklace on a jewelry stand. You grab your gun and walk over to it. It’s a small, thin chain with a small arrow on it. You reach to take it off the stand, but out of no where a walker had tackled you from behind. You screamed, falling onto the ground with the walker on top of you. The walker goes limp on top of you as Rick stabs it. He bends down to push it off of you as you breathe hard. Rick offers you his hand and you take it, standing up. You lock eyes with the tall man. He lets go of your hand after while and you cast your eyes back towards the necklace that is now still clutched in your hand. As Rick tries to walk away you stop him.

“Hey,” you say and he turns around. “Can you put this necklace on me real quick?” You ask, holding the necklace out. He puts his gun in the waistband of his pants and smiles.

“Sure thing,” he says, sauntering over to you. He grabs the necklace from your hand and wraps it around your neck, clasping it in the back. You turn to face him and say a ‘thanks’, before Rick chuckles.

“You’ve got a big of walker goo on your face,” he laughs, reaching for your face. He puts his hands on either side of your face as you laugh with him.

“Gross! Get it off me!” You smile, glad there is some time in this dark world where you can actually laugh.

He wipes the walker goo off your face as you hear footsteps running. You turn and turn to see Daryl and Carol appear out of an aisle and Daryl’s eyes fall onto you and Ricks compromising position. 

“Sorry, we heard a scream and didn’t know what it was…” Carol says as you jump apart from Rick.

“No it’s okay, we were just about done anyways, what about you?” Rick asks Carol. You block out their voices as you see Daryl’s eyes boring into you.

“Good, then lets head out,” Rick says. You tear your eyes from Daryl and grab your bag of clothes, slinging it over your shoulder. 

You head out of the store, trailing a bit behind, walking with Rick. A few feet in front of you, you see Daryl and Carol in a deep conversation. You see Carol smile at him and it makes your insides burn. You hated seeing him with some other girl. You wanted to be the one laughing with him. You wanted to be the one walking with him. You wanted to be the one with him, quite simply.


When you got home, you were sitting on the bed, holding the charm on your necklace between your thumb and forefinger. You sighed and stood up, walking out of the house. You decided that if fate wasn’t on your side, you were going to put it on your side. 

You walk to Carols house and walk up the steps to her front door, and before you could knock, the door opens and there stands Daryl. You two stare at each other for a moments before he takes in a breath as if to say something, but just brushes past you and down the steps. You exhale and shake your head, walking in her house and calling her name.

“Hey, Y/N what’s up?” she asks and you close the door. 

“Carol, I have a problem. And I thought I would come to you because you probably know what to say but I understand if-” You’re cut off by Carol smiling.

“You’re in love with Daryl,” She states, chuckling.

“What- Where- How did you-” You trip over words.

“Oh Y/N,” She says, placing her hands on your shoulders, “Sweet, wonderful Y/N, you do realize Daryl just came in here all in a hissy because he was worried you were in love with Rick?”

“Wait what?” You ask.

“Honey, he is hopelessly in love with you. If you haven’t noticed by now, you must be blind, deaf, and stupid,” she laughs, “And funny thing is, he obviously hasn’t picked up on how much you practically drool over him, which makes him also blind, deaf, and stupid.”

“He likes me?” You ask, your heart racing.

“More like in love. He has been since I can remember. Now if you are still not going to make the move, I will gladly,” she says.

“No way in hell I’m making the first move! What if he doesn’t like me anymore because he thinks I like Rick? What if he just isn’t into me anymore?” You ramble on.

“Fine then, stay here,” Carol says, walking out the door. She opens the door and lo and behold, Daryl is standing at the bottom of the steps, staring up at Carol. She walks down the steps, grabs him by his vest, and shoves him into the house. I stare at him as he stares at me. Both of our eyes are locked on each other. Unmoving. 

“Now, I’m going to leave. And when I do, will you two please just kiss or something? Or profess your undying love? This game you two play is so damn tiring,” she states, closing the door and leaving. It’s silent for a few moments before Daryl walks over to right in front of you. You look up at him, eyes moving slowly to his lips. You cup his face and throw your lips onto his. His lips move beautifully with yours as his hands cup your face.

“Thought you were with Rick.” He said, breaking the kiss.

“I’ve always liked you. Ever since the beginning. I thought you weren’t into me,” you breathed.

“I never thought I would get to kiss you,” he whispers.

“Well shut up and do it again,” You smile as he leans in again to meet his lips yo yours.

From in the house, you can hear Maggie shouting ‘finally’ outside as she looked inside through the open window and saw you and Daryl.

The same word was running through your mind. Finally.

A/N: please reblog this or like it or something this imagine took me like five hours to write i’m tired it’s late i have school in the morning pls just reblog this love u thanks for 100 followers thats so rad

“Y/N, please don’t hang up again! I know you hate me cause I woke you up. But I need a huge favor and it’s time sensitive!” Kelly almost squeaks. 

Oh, this should be good.

“Ok I’m listening.” You sigh loudly.

Let’s make those Caryl questions count!

Tomorrow Norman is doing a podcast after the episode (!!!) with Walker Stalker where people can submit questions.

So often when these opportunities arise, IMO they are wasted with the same questions, and usually questions we know Norman can’t answer. 

In the past I’ve posted suggested questions, because I’m hoping together we can get some interesting new quotes from Norman and don’t have to hear about tress in the moonlight or damaged people drawn together. ;)

(Please note, I am only talking about Caryl questions specifically. Obviously people will want to ask questions about Daryl generally. I’m not covering that. :D)

Essentially it boils down to this:

  • Don’t ask questions he can’t answer. ie questions which ask “will Carol and Daryl get together?” “when will Carol and Daryl hook up?” They are spoilers questions he can’t answer and won’t lead to much.
  • Avoid questions that we know the answer to, or that he can only answer in an obvious way - eg “Does Daryl love Carol?” “Did you like working with Melissa again?”
  • Focus on HOW, WHAT, WHY questions - “How did it feel working with Melissa again after such a long gap?” “What do you think Daryl loves most about Carol?”


My previous list of ideas for questions is HERE.

But a lot of them won’t apply to this ep/timeframe, so here’s some suggestions. Add your own ideas, and maybe hopefully we’ll get one of them asked.

  • How did Daryl feel when Morgan told him Carol was gone?
  • How did Daryl find out Carol had left the ASZ? What did he think about it?
  • Did Daryl think Morgan knew more than he was letting on about Carol?
  • How did Daryl feel about Ezekiel liking and visiting Carol?
  • How did Daryl realise Richard was talking about Carol?
  • Is Daryl jealous of Ezekiel?
  • How does Daryl feel when he sees Carol?
  • What does Daryl think about Carol’s need to not kill? Does he understand it?
  • What is it that makes Daryl decide to lie to Carol?
  • It seems like there’s a big gap in time that we don’t see, what did Carol and Daryl talk about in that time?
  • Is Daryl tempted to stay with Carol?
  • Why does Daryl run back to Carol? (hehehe)
  • What is Daryl thinking about when they part?
  • Does Daryl think he’ll go back to the house?
  • What does Daryl think when Morgan says he’s holding onto something? Has he realised it’s Carol?
  • What would Daryl think if he saw Carol killing again?
At the end of the day, it boils down to this...

As much I might appreciate supportive and simpatico Richonne, as much affection as I might have grown to feel about Gleggie, nothing compares to the butterflies of anticipation I get in the pit of my belly when Caryl are simply in the same scene. 

They don’t even have to say anything to each other, and my heart races. 

There is so much there that is unwritten, so much that is just beneath the surface, I feel like all it’s going to take is one spark, and the two of them are going to burn the whole damn place down. 

And I don’t even mean sexually.  Although, that tension is certainly a part of it, IMHO.  I mean emotionally.  Can we imagine how wrecked these two are going to be when it finally goes down, and it will.  It’s been 100 years, and Gimple’s going to make us cross the equivalent of the Red Sea to get there, but we’re going to get there.  Because these two beautiful, broken people love the shit out of each other.  Don’t waste your breath trying to tell me different.  They’ve shared more of their true selves with each other than they have with any other person they’ve come across, and it’s going to be fucking glorious when that final wall comes down.  I mean, it’s crumbling more and more every day. 

As much as the slowest of slow burns is killing us, though, I have to feel a little bit of pride.  Because you know what?  Couples on tv today happen largely in fast forward.  Nobody has the attention spans to watch two fictional people fall in love slowly.  Not many actors and actresses have the type of chemistry that even makes it worth the risk.  But Carol and Daryl?  There’s a reason we’re still hanging on.  They’re this show’s Mulder and Scully. 

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny had this special kind of sparkle to their scenes that added a whole other layer to their characters’ onscreen relationship, and IMHO, Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus have a similar sort of chemistry.  A kind of chemistry that draws you in and won’t let your eyes leave them when they’re sharing scenes and makes you wonder.  Makes you want more.  Even if it’s given to you piece meal.   

Mulder and Scully were my first tv loves.  They still hold a special place in my heart after all these years.  And you know what?  There were these exhausting, ever-lasting debates on the nature of their relationship.  Shipper versus non-shipper, all that jazz.  Sound familiar?  

Maybe Gimple took notes, lol.  Because McReedus definitely have the chemistry to carry his ass to the promised land.  If only the fans can hang around long enough to appreciate it, withstand the haters and keep loving our babies.   

So, please.  Stay positive.  Chemistry like this, that inspires so much heated debate, it doesn’t come around often.  It really doesn’t.  And for as much as I feel like Gimple and Co. don’t always get it right, I honestly think they recognize they have lightning in a bottle with the two characters and Melissa and Norman.  There’s a reason, out of all the potential couples on this show, these two have been entrusted to draw this audience along this long, winding path.  They inspire a special kind of devotion, and I don’t know about you, but these two characters?  Carol and Daryl?  Are right up there with Mulder and Scully on my list of forever faves.   

Either way, I’m sensing a pattern in my shipping preferences.  Obviously, I am a glutton for punishment, lol.  And I’m a rambler up way past her bedtime so I’ll leave it at that. 

Keep hanging on. 

Much love.
