yes you can ignore this post if you want since i’m sure it’s already been discussed at length (i’m just slow i know i’m sorry xD) but i jusssst need to talk about one small thing from the premiere for my own satisfaction don’t mind me ahem
ok, so, all the while Daryl was shown kneeling before Negan, we were given seven flashes/flashbacks of what was going through Daryl’s mind/scenes tptb wanted to reiterate as having a significance for him, y/y? y
and four of those seven flashes for Daryl belonged to Carol :)
right. yes. okay.
but can we just take a minute to review those four please yes good
The Cherokee Rose scene was shown
during which Daryl offered Carol “strength and hope”
they also chose to include the flash where Daryl finds Carol alive in the tombs and carries her to safety
thereby illustrating the sheer importance of him finding that hope at this point again (given how much it had affected him thinking he’d lost her)
then we saw the No Sanctuary hug that was a culmination of just how much Daryl fucking neeeeeeeds her and his hope was restored once more
but but thennnn there was this scene you guys ……….
where it not only exhibited how much their bond had grown between seasons and how much closer they had become but also went and highlighted the very real unresolved. sexual. fucking. tension. between them. complete with touching, awkwardness, eye-contact, twitches, gulps and sexual innuendos
so um, yeah I just have one question; why was THIS one of Daryl’s flashes??
Not that they aren’t all important and significant and fucking gorgeous in different ways and I love the ones that were included but the bus scene too… where we were first given a glimpse of Daryl AND Carol recognizing the tension that had come up in a moment they shared …… uh yeah I like it a lot ;)
ok cof that’s all i wanted to say :))
