Shannon’s recap of this week’s episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ spawned a (perhaps inevitable) discussion about why the characters of Daryl and Carol haven’t given in to temptation and made their relationship physical yet. Have you been waiting for that to happen? Do you think that’s the right direction for the show to take? Vote in today’s poll.
Carol and Daryl obviously have a tight bond. I think it’s fair to call it love. Personally, however, I don’t see them having sexual tension. Their relationship is on a different level than a simple hook-up. It’s not quite a brother/sister thing, but it’s not quite romantic either.
Putting Daryl and Carol together at this point would be little more than fan service. I prefer the relationship the way it is now, strong but complex and undefined. The show already has Maggie and Glenn to fulfill its romance quota, and that’s enough for me.
