    I know that some think Rambo Carol is over the top but, personally, I loved her role in 'No Sanctuary' and I cheered her the whole way through.

    The badass way she handled Martin, her thinking on her feet, her sharpshooting skills, walking among the dead and then her fight with Mary. Loved it all.

    Best part of course was the end! I teared up and it's all because of MMB's outstanding performance.

    This is my favorite Carol moment

    The whole look at the flowers line wasn't cold or scary or sinister. It was heartbreaking to me. This is when I officially became a Carol fan.

    The hugs at the end of this episode make me an ooey gooey mess.

    One of my favorite Carol scenes (which is hard since she's one of my favorite characters) was her and Rick reuniting in "When the Dead Come Knocking":

    The entire sequence is TEARS.

    I really liked this episode. Keeping it in is really taking a toll on her. She deserves some semblance of restored hope in humanity and most importantly herself.

    One of my favorite pairings after the prison (Aside from Richonne & Carl) was Carol, Tyreese, Lizzie, Mika, and Judith. It would really make my nipples moist if they had Carol talk about them (Tyreese, Lizzie, and Mika).

    Totally agree! I'm really hoping for a scene where she lets everything; Melissa does emotional scenes like that so well and I'd love for it to between her and one of ladies, like Maggie or Michonne.

    She really does. I feel like tptb misses big opportunities when it come to the women on the show, especially keeping their friendships consistent and flowing - not creating any scenes for them and building their bonds. I would love to see an all women episode or just scenes where the women interact on a regular basis. Carol and Michonne especially have less female interactions than the other women since 5A I think. Hoping this changes in 6B where they can be open with each or at least make a step forward. And I know the Carol scenes will be good.

    It's a damn shame that we haven't gotten more Carol/Michonne stuff, especially since MMB and DG are both such phenomenal actresses.
    Hopefully we'll be getting some good stuff in 6b!

    I really like Carol. I think she's had to make many tough decisions and has chosen the best path for the situation. I don't get some of the hate I've seen for her over those choices. People seem to forget that she has gotten them out of some really bad situations. She's definitely an asset to the group and I really do want to see more of her in 6B.

    How anyone can say Carol is cold-hearted I don't understand. Ugh, this set here guts me.

    Yeah, the hate Carol gets sometimes astounds me. Were some of her choices questionable? Sure, but they were completely understandable. When you're in a lose-lose situation sometimes you have to go with the option that has a better chance of the group surviving. The group is still going due to a lot of these choices.

    That's what it comes down for me, some of her choices definitely fall on the morally grey side of things but they're all very understandable. She makes the difficult decisions that others are not able to make and it eats at her. I really just want her to find some peace and really connect back with TF because I feel like she hasn't quite come back since Rick banished her.

    Melissa nailed her undercover role. The residents had no idea :)

    Carol is my #1! I love her so much. Still holding out hope that she and Michonne will actually speak to one another.
