A beautiful thing happened tonight. After seven long season we got to see Rick and Daryl show their love with an actual embrace instead of nods and glances. It was totally worth the wait and it was the perfect hug. The way Daryl started getting emotional and bowing his head, the way Rick grabbed him in the hug and held tight to his neck with a hand in his hair, the length of the embrace…. it was all just perfect.
And Daryl, right hand man as always, gives Rick back his colt. Having the boys and the rest of team family back together again is a great way to end the season. After the pain from the premiere and the agonizing episodes with everyone separated and waiting for multiple weeks to see even a glimpse of some of our favorites- Finally we get a reward. There’s been a lot of complaining about where TWD has been going this season. I know this because I was one of the ones complaining. But if 7B gives us Team Family back together again and fighting… I just may forgive 7A.
