FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
When Jesus rescues Daryl from the Sanctuary, Daryl is weak and exhausted from mistreatment. Jesus, quick thinker that he is, revs up the nearest available bike and yells, “Daryl, hop on!”
Too grateful, tired, and delirious with adrenaline to object, Daryl wraps his arms around Jesus’ waist and rests his head against his shoulder, ceding control and putting complete faith in his ninja bae. Jesus then proceeds to hightail them both over to the Kingdom, where they meet up with Carol & Morgan, and of course, Ezekiel.
Jesus takes care of Daryl, nursing him back to health with soup, visits to the Kingdom doctor, encouragement to take long naps on soft pillows, and constant vigilance. Once Daryl is patched up and has fully processed the magnitude of what Jesus has done for him, well…let’s just say Jesus receives the best “thank you” EVER.
(And that’s it, that’s the mid-season finale, y'all. BOOM.)
