Could you do the water jug scene?
Oh but of course… lets keep the positivity going shall we?
Ok so lets start from the beginning of this scene actually. Our lovely duo is out carrying water back to camp and Daryl not only can’t stop looking at Carol but can’t seem to shut his damn mouth either. Mr. Chatterbox it seems.
“I get it.. you don’t want to talk about it.. You ok?”
I mean how cute is he here checking on her, talking to her as if he just can’t stop either. Mans lucky he didn’t trip over his own feet.
Her answer is a throwback to a scene exactly a year before. “Gotta be.” And he gives her a little smirk almost like he remembers having this exact same conversation in reverse. It’s adorable.
He mentions for the first time ‘starting over, with each other’ and then proceeds to remind her that ‘you saved us, all by yourself..”
There is just so much awe and so little ego in this statement. He is in total awe of her, not only that she did what she did but that’s she’s here with him again. He’s still just completely over the moon about it. You can’t just tell by looking at him.
“We got lucky.. we should be dead..”
Not giving herself any credit, and showing some alter in her mood. Daryl knowing her as well as he does is slowly picking up on this as she notices the car and seems pretty interested in it and changing the subject. He can sense it, even if he’s not sure what it is. So he desperately tries to keep talking to her.
“Hey we ain’t dead.. and whatever happened, happened.. lets start over.”
He is telling her that he doesn’t care what she did, or what happened. That it no longer matters. All that matters is here and now. Notice the ‘lets’ in that start over statement. Translate to ‘how you and I start over?’ Talking about doing it together. He may not know for certain what she’s planning to do but his senses are up and after just getting her back he needs her to see that he’s here.
“I want to.” She says quietly, her face saying that she does but doesn’t think she can or deserves to.
“Well you can.”
Carol is considering this, and checking the battery on the car, desperately trying to focus. to not see the look on his face at that moment. And tells him they should keep this car in mind in case things go south.
And now he’s really sensing something so in one last ditch effort he offers to carry one of the jugs for her…
COMPLETELY FORGETTING HE’S CARRYING 2 ALREADY cause he’s so focused on her and doing and saying anything to keep her attention, and he’s all nervous and fidgety as it is, with the back and forth on the foot thing he does and of course SPLASH down goes the water jug in his hand in hilarious fashion.
I mean this a guy can rapid fire kill walkers with great precision but does this when trying to be chivalrous with a woman who obviously didn’t need any help.
Awkward doesn’t even begin to cover it people.
And he is just…
The cutest embarrassment ever and you can almost read his mind ‘wow I really suck at this shit..”
But Carol’s face just says it all. He is so damn precious to her she can’t help but smile. How could she not?
Smooth Dixon. Smooth.
I love this one because it goes from serious conversation, more talking than Daryl has done in like an entire season, to adorably hilarious in the space of minutes. The fact that tough sure handed Daryl, who tends to use few words turns into clumsy chatty Kathy around her is so very adorable.
And I mean yeah sure guys always act like this around women they are not interested in at all.
Right. Tell me another one.
(these are not my gifs but I’ve had them for so long I forgot who made them so credit to whoever did)
