    !!SPOILER WARNING!!

    I don't even know where to begin with tonight's episode. I still think the beginning scene with Lizzie was very strange like it's leading up to something else. I honestly don't know what to say, except that I feel so sad after this episode. Please discuss your thoughts. There's also U.S.S. Caryl if you want to read more insights into the episode. How do you think Daryl will react? Do you think Rick will tell him the truth? I don't know if we'll ever see Carol again, but I think Rick is going to give Daryl that momento of Carol's. We can't expect to get what we want from "The Walking Dead," but I am happy Carol is alive. I wonder if she will ever show back up on the show.

    I need to add more to this journal, so people are saying that this is a foreshadowing of Daryl disappearing from the show temporarily to go look for Carol. What do you think? I can't imagine he won't go look for Carol. He looked for Sophia. If he does leave to look for Carol, it'll be after he's taken care of the sick group members by giving them medicine. I think all hell is going to break loose after Rick tells Daryl what he did. Rick and Daryl are going to fight (it's going to be really hot).

    The main reason I believe Rick banished Carol is because he's afraid of someone like Shane or Carol influencing his son, Carl. He's not afraid of Carol hurting his son (Carl is just as scary as Carol right now and that scares Rick), but he's afraid of Carol changing Carl into someone he doesn't want his son to be. Rick doesn't like seeing what he could become when he looks at Carol. It's also a possible future that Rick sees for himself and he's trying to fight that image. The second reason Rick left Carol is because he truly believed that Tyreese was going to kill her and he didn't want that to happen.

    Honestly, throughout the entire episode, I thought Rick was going to kill Carol. I was upset with Rick, but I was relieved when he left her there. I feel like we're going to see more from her, because Kirkman could have just killed off her character (Heaven forbid) right then and there but he didn't.

    I want to remind everyone... we still don't entirely know if Carol did kill Karen and David! I know she said she did (please, Kirkman isn't going to spoon feed us the entire truth), but I feel like Carol might be protecting Lizzie. What if Lizzie did murder Karen and David, and she kills more people at the prison and the group finds out about it? Then Rick is going to have that, oh shit face, "I screwed up. My bad, my bad. Don't hurt me, Daryl." Maybe Lizzie didn't do it... Carol might have done it, but the season isn't over yet so I don't know. It still feels too strange the scenes with Carol and Lizzie. Those scenes feel more about Lizzie and less about Carol, but hey, that's just me.

    Someone on U.S.S. Caryl had this to say about Lizzie's comment about Daryl:

      "Sorry to send you this, I know your inbox must be flooding (lol ship jokes, sorry, bad pun), but with everyone focusing on the whole "Rick abandoned Carol OMG," I thought I'd share something that popped out at me in the beginning of the episode, when Lizzie asks Carol if she thinks Daryl's dead. Lizzie doesn't ask about Tyreese or Bob or Michonne-If she knew Daryl went on the run, she probably knew the others did, too, but she asks about Daryl bc even she, a little kid, can see that CARYL is a thing." -Anonymous

    RebasTweeba pointed out something very important that you all should know! I'm going to quote our Founder, because she brought up some great stuff:

      "Melissa was seen filming a few days ago so we know she's not dead yet either! And I'm hoping she's in the next episode and I'm hoping Daryl goes after her! And in one of the previews for an episode in the future, there is bodies being burned and a lot of the group is standing around it, including Carol. She'll be back. -RebasTweeba, Admin, Founder of Daryl-x-Carol

    Check out this quote too from the U.S.S. Caryl Captain:

      "I don’t think he will leave the prison either, I think he will go out looking for her, and day after day not find her. Thinking he is failing her, just like he did when he couldn’t find Sophia… And then, Carol is going to pop up right when they need her with a group of her own trailing after her like a bunch of hurrying after their mama." -U.S.S. Caryl Captain

    Let me add that Rick is completely hypocritical! I realize that Shane was trying to kill him, but Shane lowered his weapon! Y'all remember that? He lowered his weapon! And then Rick killed him anyway. That's not exactly in self-defense, so Rick is hypocritical when it comes to "judging Carol." Everyone in the group has done something crazy, even Carl. Do you think he'd banish his own son? Hell no!

    I see why Rick didn't go with the council members, because Hershel is in the infected area, Glenn is sick, Maggie and Beth... (are they on the council?), Carol was on the council, and he knows Daryl is going to always side with Carol.

    Let's be honest. What Lori was to Rick, that's what Carol is to Daryl. The reason I feel justified in saying that is because Daryl and Rick have gone through a lot of the same things. They've both been overly concerned about a child. Daryl about Sophia. Rick about Carl. Rick had to have a confrontation with his best friend (who did bad stuff), who turned zombie and he had to deal with that. Daryl had a confrontation with his brother (who did bad stuff), who turned zombie and he had to deal with that. They have had similar things happen to them. That's why I feel like Carol is Daryl's Lori, which means he loves her. Rick and Daryl mirror each other. Anyone else notice that?

    I was feeling sad right after I saw the episode, but I am feeling happy now because I keep picturing like the reunion scene between Carol and Daryl... Daryl can't contain himself when he sees Carol and he so hugs her like no man has ever hugged a woman before. hah.

    There's one thing we can be happy with. Maybe we will FINALLY find out Daryl's true feelings for Carol from his reaction to Carol's banishment.

    Please follow Yvette Nicole Brown on Twitter. Did anyone else catch Yvette Nicole Brown's tweets on Twitter about the episode? She's a hardcore Caryl fan. She suggested a spinoff. Can we get a spinoff? Maybe like with Carol and Daryl just killin' zombies and makin' out in the woods...

    Here's some of her tweets as she reacts to the episode:

    I'll be honest with everyone, if you don't want to see Carol off the show... please follow Melissa McBride on Twitter. I'm sure the writers wanted to kill off Daryl, but he's such a popular character they won't ever do that. That's why anyone who has a Twitter account needs to follow that adorable Melissa McBride on Twitter. We need to support her as an actress ('cause she's AMAZING) and we need to support our mutual love for Carol!!

OMG. I like the Lizzie theory...if she did it, it might explain how she got sick (i think she was the one thats sick right?) My head is still reeling after this episode. I'm so upset me may not see her for a while. Daryl had better react, thats all i gotta say. Cuz he almost lost her before when they all thought she was dead and now he has to lose her again. I wanna cry and destroy things. Please dont let her be written off the show. I will sob so hard.

I know, right? There's still something up with that girl! Yeah, wouldn't Carol be sick if Karen and David were sick too? That just makes sense to me. Why wouldn't Carol have gotten it?

Exactly. And it would explain that hug Carol gave her after she said she was sick. It seemed like more than just a 'im upset you're sick' hug. More like a ' you sacrificed for the good of us all' hug. I could be reading into things but dsfsdfsdgdsg

Second time commenting lol XD Anyways.
I read through all these comments and the journal again and i have to say that if they don't have Daryl react in someway to being told Rick ditched Carol i'm gonna flip . I'm almost 100% sure that he's going to do something, even if it's just a sad expression, but if nothing happens i'm gonna be mad. And you had a point about Daryl being out of character if he doesn't search for Carol, i mean he searched for Sophia before they were this close, and now they've become very close. So if he doesn't it's going to be out of character.
We'll just have to sadly wait and see for 6 more days ... darn i want to see what happens so bad !!!

I'm going to flip too!!!!!! :XD: I'm gonna like be like, "WHOA NOW! DARYL, YOU REACT BOY! THAT IS YOUR GIRL!" :XD:

I know, right? I mean, he searched for Sophia. It would be SO out of character for him to not search for Carol! There's no way. I mean, he might not do so immediately, because he has to help the sick. But he's going to look for her. If he doesn't, it would not be the Daryl we know at all. I think this is where Daryl and Rick differ.

I honestly don't know if we'll get much from the next episode. I think they are going to focus mostly on the sick. Maybe it will be the following episode, but Daryl is going to probably demand that Rick tell him what happened to Carol.

I think we'll see her again, at one point not sure if later this season or another season. My wish is that Daryl will go looking for her, but the producers probably won't let that happen, so I also hope she would come back to the group at a moment that would redeem her in the eyes of Rick. We'll just have to see. I actually think she's starting to make decisions more as a leader than anyone else and I wonder if that scared Rick? I still feel she did what she did not in cold blood, but in a hope that she would save more people doing things like that. Sometimes in the zombie apocalypse sacrifices need to be made. I also feel that among many of the main characters right now, she's one of the ones up there with Daryl and Michonne, that could survive on their own in this apocalypse. She'll be fine.

I agree with you. I think we'll see her again at some point. I don't know when either. I'm hoping to that Daryl will go looking for her, even if he doesn't find her. I'd be happy to see his attempt, because it means he loves her. Rick needs to be redeemed himself, y'know what I'm sayin'? lol. He did kill Shane. No one banished him.

I think she'll be fine. Yvette Brown was joking about a spinoff with Carol. Can Daryl come to? I'd watch that. :XD:

Daryl is probably gonna look for her (at least I hope)...but certainly not leave the prison for that. I really hope she doesn't dissapear for too long tho :/ I want her to come back, she is one of my fav characters.
I didn't quite liked Rick in the first place, but after that episode, I've lost all respect for him.

I updated the journal.

If he doesn't look for her, it'll be totally out of character bc that's what he did for Sophia! It might take him a while to leave the prison, because he has to care for sick people right now and he's going to do that first and foremost. I want her to come back, but I don't want Tyreese to kill her. I felt the same way about Rick, but... at the same time maybe he did partly bc he didn't want Tyreese to kill her.

As soon as she told Lizzie they were going on a run, I knew Rick was going to leave Carol out there. Daryl's left before however temporarily but it was a different situation. If Rick tells the truth I don't think Daryl will follow her. He'll be upset certainly, but responsibility to the prison and 'their people' will come first. Still that's assuming Carol isn't one of their people. If Rick says they got separated Daryl might go looking, if he says she's dead Daryl will be heartbroken but not show it, if he tells the truth; its betrayal.

Thinking about the Jasper he picked up, it looks like they were going for imagery. These momentos you have for people. That jasper I think was going on someone's grave, while the watch was the old Carol. Their both requiems for someone long gone.

But if she doesn't come back I'm going to throw some things.

I knew that too, but I thought that Rick was going to kill her so the episode ended way better than I thought it would. lol. Rick is going to have to tell Daryl the truth at some point and I'm going to feel so good when Rick gets punched in the face. lol. Rick tells the truth all the time. I think he will eventually let it slip to Daryl, "Oh yeah, and btw man, I banished your GF! HA!" :XD: *Daryl slaps his face* Bad Rick.

That's a great point about the watch being the old Carol. 

If she doesn't come back, I'm going to be upset too. I mean, everyone in the Group has done something cray-cray.

Ooh I so want that to happen! I can see Daryl getting that awful scrunched up face he does when he's really mad and really upset, then when he's calmed down just going back to a cell and sitting in the dark for ages. Maybe impulsively starting to go after her then being persuaded to stay. Weirdly I think Michonne might be the one to tell him to go after her if he needs to. Even though she seems to be on track to settle in at the prison.

Damn it now I want Daryl to find Carol on a run in some abandoned house and have impulsive angry sex against a wall :la: This may need to be written.

I don't think that Michonne will tell Daryl to go after her, I think she has the hots for Daryl and would be more like... "She did something wrong. You shouldn't go after her."

hahaha. Daryl comes back to the prison a man.

I dunno, of all of them I think she'd understand getting out and finding what you need to find. And I think if she does have the hots it hasn't dawned yet.

She made that comment about Daryl's eyes and smiled at him, I think she knows. lol. I don't know if she'd let her romantic interest for him interfere with finding Carol. It depends on whether or not she thinks what Carol did was wrong, which would be hypocritical. 

LOL. :XD: I'm a real boy now!

I'm sad too :( I REALLY hope Carol comes back because she is an awesome character. And if Daryl has any feelings for Carol, then he's going after her and is going to be mad at Rick; I mean Rick has left somone important to Daryl behind before and we saw how Daryl reacted (classic throwing of squirrels :D ). Hopefully this will all work out and Carol comes back eventually :)

I'm worried, because Kirkman says that a lot of characters in his book just disappear.

That would be a horrible way for him to get rid of Carol. I'd rather her get eaten by a zombie than for us to never hear about her again! Melissa is still filming with the crew? I hope Daryl goes after her, but knowing Rick he probably won't say anything to Daryl until they've taken care of the sick. Daryl is going to freak the heck out!!!
