Really think about it.
While Carol wants to sit alone with the fire and a skillful book, Abe and Glenns heads has been smashed in by Negan.
The whole group’s life was in danger. Negan walking around in the kitchen holding Judith in his arms. Daryl being in that cell with Dwight and the Saviors in a brutal torture. Spencers death and Olivias. Maggies lost and Sachas lost.
Only there is a Carol middle in a zombie hell wants to sit there like nothing happened. That she never even meets Rick. ”Don’t tell anyone where I’m if you assure them”. It’s like she is dead already. If she doesn’t worry about anyone anymore? Well. She builds a Paradise for herself and she won’t let her friends to partake in it.
