One of many reasons why I appreciate this entire Rick/Gabriel friendship is that it highlights a quality that many of these characters possess but that often goes ignored in Rick, and that is his capacity for forgiveness.
What’s even better than him forgiving Gabriel for throwing them under the bus, is that it wasn’t an empty gesture. Not only did he forgive him, but he trusts him and believes in him now. He trusts him to care for Judith. He trusts him to protect Alexandria. And he believes Gabriel would never betray them.
He forgave Tara - instantly - for rolling up to their gates with The Governor. And would later go on to be furious with her for putting her life in danger for Spencer and what a fuckin waste that was in hindsight but moving right along.
He forgave Morgan for keeping a wolf, who could have killed somebody, inside their walls. He told Morgan, “You’re coming back” and gave him his gun for protection.
And I don’t even have time to talk about Shane.
Honestly, unless you tried to serve him up as BBQ he is very much willing to look past peoples’ mistakes and give them second chances, and I just wanted to talk about that.
Back at the prison, Michonne would give her colourful cat statue to Carl whenever she was away looking for the Governor. Carl would sit and read comic books with the cat by his side. Rick would join him and place the cat in his lap… they both missed their Michonne.
We know that the staging of Scott Gimple is not constructed in a casual way, but everything we see has a meaning, a why and are related.Well, here are a number of elements that, put in relation, support that Caryl is more REAL than ever.
First: In the scene where Daryl and Richard maintain a confrontation, in the end we see in the truck the drawing of a cowboy before a carriage, with a gun.With this, we can do a comparison with the fight between Daryl and Richard, alluding to the fact that Daryl is that cowboy, opposing to the idea of Richard to kill Carol to face the saviors. Daryl wants to protect her and that will always do.
Again, when Carol is at her home, she begins to read the book we already know is titled “Denim Dreams” and is supposed to be about a romantic novel.Again, alluding to the cowboy. And then someones knocks on the door and “oh what a surprise, Daryl.”
Third: The reason why Daryl lies to Carol about what happened to Glenn and Abraham and says "everyone’s alright” is just to keep her safe in the house, while the confrontation with the saviors happens, because, everyone knows, and Daryl better than anyone else, that Carol would join the fight against Negan if she found out what had really happened.In addition, she is going through an emotional phase where she feels lost and does not know what else to do to survive without having to kill anyone else.Daryl understands it all and, as Morgan said “See, we’re ALL holding on to something” Daryl is holding on to Carol. She is his reason to keep on living.
Okay, so here’s my theory for the finale.
It is clear that Carol will at some point find out about the deaths of Glenn and Abraham and she will realize that Daryl has lied to her.The logical thing would be for Carol to get angry because Daryl didn’t tell her the truth.We don’t know what her reaction might be, but in case she acted in that way, she might end up arguing with Daryl, shattered when she heard the news.In the middle of the argument, Daryl will have no choice but to tell Carol the truth, why he actually lied to her: Because he needed to protect her, he wants her to be safe in the house , because HE DOESN’T WANT TO LOSE HER, BECAUSE IT HELPS HIM TO CONTINUE IN THIS LIFE AND BECAUSE HE LOVES HER.
Whatever happens, the truth will eventually come to Carol and Daryl, in one moment or another Daryl will have to be sincere and explain his reasons to Carol. And his reasons are THESE.
We could be before a declaration of definitive love. And that moment is CLOSE, VERY CLOSE.
I loved that episode last week 7/10 it’s so beautiful, esp. This reunion. Nobody can call that a Mother/Son relationship after this.
Firstly the way she just melts at the sight of him, he hugs her immediately, but is a little reticent, because he had to call her out for leaving him, yes HIM not anyone else, he’s upset she left him. She points out again “I can’t lose you”, they both know this is it. They are there for each other more than anyone else.
And the way they look at each other throughout that scene. He wouldn’t need to protect her if she’s not the one he loves, she wouldn’t be so scared of being around him and simultaneously unable to keep away from him and of what it will do to her if she didn’t love him. He’s worried for her, she’s worried for him.
And of course the final goodbye, he was going, but turns rushes back to hug her, he can’t just leave, they belong together, they both know that. He even draws her in closer, kisses her neck/shoulder, and she can’t resist almost following him, she sways towards him as he walks away.
