In an episode titled Forget, it looks like Carol is the only character that still remembers that the show she’s on is called The Walking Dead! The group has finally found what they were looking for in Alexandria, a lovely little community where they can be normal. They even got to shower and shave off their apocalypse beards!
Rick is beginning a full-on Desperate Housewives affair, Daryl is giving up hunting for gathering people, and Michonne literally hung up her sword — all that was missing was her picking up a plowshare!
But Carol knows what’s up! While she was pretending to be Suzie Homemaker, gurl was secretly stealing weapons and preparing for a hostile takeover! And if that means scaring the everloving crap out of a small child who happens to see you, well… Carol has done worse. Ch-ch-check out Carol at her most terrifying (below)!
DAYUM! So what did actress Melissa McBride think about saying that stuff to a kid? She’s totally on Carol’s side! She said:
“I loved the scene. I was like, this is going to be such a fun scene to do. And Major Dodson [who plays Sam] is such an awesome kid. I feel like we hit it off right away. We share a similar humor and he’s curious and precocious and funny. I was really looking forward to doing that scene. I thought, she’s telling us a story. Story time! In a way. But also, wow! What an interesting way for her to again protect the group at all costs because she’s trying very hard to keep her place so that she can go undercover and watch to see what’s going on and know who these people are. And that’s so important├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥the survival of her group, and also the people within the walls. And the children├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥him, too. She’s got work to do, and if you tell anyone what’s going on, this is what could happen. And, really, that’s what could happen, you know? This is not unlike her teaching the children how to protect themselves. This child is unaware of this threat that is out there. They’re sheltered. They don’t know what’s going on. But if my cover is blown, some bad things could happen.”
Do U think Carol is right? Or is she just becoming the dangerous one herself — like that lady she shot in Terminus??
