    My opinion Carol should be happy she got that "shitty" arc since she is dead in the comics and it's obvious Gimple no longer knows what to do with her. If Gimple can no longer write for Carol or give her fresh material, you may not like the alternative solution.

    I would hate for her to die but can you really say you would want your fav to have that shitty arc. And if you think that arc is not shitty then you are a better person than me.

    No I wouldn't. But I would also be nervous about my favorite being killed. The kingdom arc allows Carol the opportunity I hope to heal and get out of her circle of pain and hopefully based on 7B spoilers you may get the old kick ass and love of TF Carol back instead of the woo is me, trying to leave and potentially die Carol.

    Luckily you don't have to worry about your favorite dying. I want Carol to heal and be happy. Gimple should realize that some comic stories don't fit well on the show. You can't just plop a character into a comic arc that doesn't make sense.

    Why is it shitty? just cause Daryl is not with her? if anything this gives Carol an opportunity to heal and kick ass again. She needs to get out of that mentality and if Ezekiel helps her even better.

    Michonne's arc in the comic is full of pain. I can agree with that. But it is also why the character is one of the top comic book heroes as of present. So, you gotta take the good with the bad and realize that this arc may give Carol's character more growth and development than a lot of other characters on the show.

    That being said, the writers could do a better job of not making this story line so clunky, rushed, etc.

    I just think it was a shitty arc in the comics and I don't like it on the show. Why can't people understand that. It was boring. And Daryl has nothing to do with it. I don't see Carol as just with Daryl. I see her as her own person. Since Carol is my favorite on the show I just want to see her healthy, happy and doing interesting things. Sitting around in a house alone is not an interesting story to me.

    She should be happy she has an arc period. The majority of the characters don't have (numerous) bottle episodes and complete story lines unto themselves. Carol is constantly in the forefront. She's Gimple's special snowflake. She has nothing to complain about.

    To me it just doesn't fit Carol. With the way Sasha was in Season 5 it would have fit her way better. Jmo.

    They are never killing Carol. The producers love MMB too much.

    Admittedly Carol is sitting more on the backburner this season. She got a bottle episode with Morgan and Ezekiel, but she's not going to appear again until 708.

    I think this is because they want to keep the character safe from Negan. Carol is almost always conveniently gone when any real danger appears. When she is there (like with the Wolves and Terminus), she propped up as the savior. So in a way, they are saving her so she can be in the forefront again when Negan is over. She's in no danger and that's what's irritating.

    lol not even close, they are very, very different people, for so many reasons.... Plus, Rick killed Shane because he was going to kill him, there was no choice. Carol killed Karen and David who were two innocent people... this comparison just doesn't make any sense.

    I thought she only went back to the prison to look for Lizzy and Mika. I'm not positive but didn't she say as much to Tyreese? With that in mind, her leaving the ASZ for her own personal reasons did make some sense to me.

    I think Daryl needs to grow up and man up too but I would be surprised if he moved away from Rick. He doesn't seem like the type to live in the Kingdom...I can't see him at choir rehearsal:negan:

    I would love to see Daryl singing in the choir. And I just think he was Merle's shadow and now Rick's. He is ready to be his own man now. That would help him grow up and man up. He has learned a lot from Rick but now he needs to go live his own life.
