“We missed each other this whole time. Me and Andy missed each other, but me and Melissa missed each other too. It’s weird. She and I talk when we’re not filming and we’re like “How are you?” It’s f—ing bizarre! So it’s hard and it’s a bittersweet reunion. We enjoy it, but we don’t enjoy being apart. And that goes for a lot of us. There are certain characters where as soon as they start going, we start bawling. It’s kind of silly. But she’s definitely one of those for me.”

“She’s going through her own thing and there’s a reason why she separated herself and doesn’t want to be a killer anymore. And she’s losing herself, and I think Daryl realizes that. It’s a very selfless act. He tells her what she needs to hear to keep going. He does it for her.”

“I think she can totally handle it. It’s just not what she needs. Everyone’s path is their individual path, and she needs to be away from it because she’s losing herself and that world, when your whole life is changed and your whole world is changed and the dynamics have changed, and you start to lose yourself — then what’s the point, you know? So I think that he realizes that she needs to hold on to something. She’s been working towards it and it’s been hard for her, and he sees how hard it is for her to even make the choice to do what she’s doing now. And selflessly, he tells her what she needs to hear because he cares about her and doesn’t want to drag her into something that she doesn’t want to be a part of.”

“I love working with Melissa. Everything we do is just fluid, it’s real. When we opened that door in rehearsal, both of us were breaking down in tears. […] Everything she does is just magic.”

“Daryl has watched her go through that struggle of not being able to kill. If she’s losing herself, what’s the point? He cares more about her than anything, so he lies. […] He’ll lie just to protect her. He cares more about her than he does anything.”

                   earth, let not thy envious shade
                   dare itself to interpose;
                   MINERVA’S shining orb was made
                   heaven to clear when day did close:
                   bless us then with wished sight,

                                         lay thy bow of PEARL apart
                                         & thy crystal-shining quiver;
                                         give unto the flying HART
                                         space to breathe, how short soever:
                                         thou that mak’st a day of night,
                                         GODDESS EXCELLENTLY BRIGHT.

                                                            cherished by stingray.

The last few days have been incredibly hectic and I’ve worked every single one of them, so I’m sorry I haven’t been around much except for on mobile! I’m off tomorrow though, so I’m seriously going to get down to business, I’m so hyped. tbh.

Like all I want to do is reply to people and plot, but I literally have work in an hour, yet I haven’t even started getting ready and I have to do a load of laundry before I run out of socks again, omfg.

So tomorrow, for sure.
