Welcome To My Wonderland: Sigh
If/When the writers decide to kill Carol off, I’m pretty sure that the only reason that they will do it is to further Daryl’s character.
Like when Merle comes back, Daryl retreats back into Merle’s sidekick and he completely ignores Carol and something happens between them like an argument or a…
Now don’t get me wrong, this seems perfectly logical. It would actually make for a good plot twist.
But by all that is good, TWD writers please please do not kill off Carol. Daryl’s character can be emotionally turmoiled and strengthened in more, less Carol’sDeath-involved ways. I mean, bringing Merle back into the picture alone would cause Daryl a lot of emotional (and moral) turmoil. Keeping Carol alive, I believe, would help him progress into the kindred soul he was meant to be. Her death may cause him to recoil entirely. Since it’s obvious he cares for her over the others in the group, which is saying something too. With how closed-off he is, it’s suprising enough that he actually began to trust (or atleast feel the need to protect) the group at all. But Carol, romantic or not, his feelings for her are stronger than for anyone else. If she were to be killed, I feel a part of him would die with her and, rather than emotionally transform into a man trusting of everyone, he, because of who he is and how he is, would never allow himself to care again. He would probably even leave the group.
And on a relevant note; if Merle causes Carol any harm, there will be so much fucking hell to pay.
