me if i ever get sent to prison
Of course, the episode has its heartwarming moments. After the group finally crosses paths with Carol, Daryl is the first to break ranks and embrace her in an epic hugathon. Actor Norman Reedus played this moment exceptionally well. True joy is hard to portray, but Reedus drags the viewer right along with him, jumpy and anxious in a way that suggests that, somewhere in the back of his mind, Daryl believes he could simply be hallucinating.
well, put some skates on. be your own hero.

It’s me or she has tiny flappy boobies? Bad mood boobs.
But what I loved the most in this scene, was Daryl who couldn’t have enough of Carol. They hugged for more than a minute, she reluctantly pulled back from him to look up at him, and Daryl just wants to come back into her arms. Yes, I ship Caryl.
I love how they showed Daryl’s first reaction when Carole was back. Daryl, not anyone else. And how Carole was only staring at him too.
And so it begins. Day one of season 3. Back in action.
