But how does our Queen feel about being lied to by Daryl?


Melissa believes Carol understands why Daryl lied and admits she wasn’t ready for the truth yet.

“I don't think there's any ill feelings toward Daryl for lying," the actress tells

"There's complete and total understanding, and if not a little guilt on her part for putting him in that merciful position to do what he did and tell her that everyone was okay.”


That understanding and mercy comes from a place of deep love, but not the kind of love fans are hoping for.



Melissa explains the deep (and platonic) relationship Carol shares with her Pookie.

"I think it is they're wounded children, really get one another," Melissa told, "I don't see her becoming a mother to him at all. I see her becoming that wounded friend."


So there you have it. Carol and Daryl understand each other incredibly well and the love they share is real.
