Happy Birthday Melissa McBride
March 23 is Melissa McBride’s birthday and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by thinking about the “Best of Carol.” Sure, Norman Reedus has already licked her face, but we all need to pay tribute to the might Carol.
There’s no better place to start than with Terminus. Just when we thought everything was over (except for Rick’s don’t-screw-with-us-mentality), Carol arrived, covered in mud like Rambo, and took nearly everyone out.
Being the only person free has its advantages…
To Kill The Wolf, You Must Become The Wolf
Next, there’s the scene with the Wolves. Carol grabbed some Wolf-like attire, sketched a “W” on her forehead and pretended to capture Morgan as a prisoner. Once again, the only free person, she reeked havoc on the enemy.
The Alexandrians seemed completely defensiveness, but through her efforts to simply blend in with the enemy, Carol ran around the Safe Zone killing Wolves who had no idea who they were dealing with.
Carol saved everyone once again…
Carol Invites The Saviors To A BBQ
Finally, there was the Savior Killing Floor scenes when Carol was locked up with Maggie (in the haunting location they filmed Saw). Carol roasted several of the Saviors within the outpost as she and Maggie made their escape.
Carol didn’t really want to kill everyone, but Maggie insisted they take every single person out. The duo lured the female Saviors through a holding area that was lined with gasoline and then Carol sparked a flame to kill them all.
Again, Carol took out the enemy despite not having the numbers. This may have been Carol’s most brutal enemy slaying, but it’s one of the reasons Rick Grimes will need her when the battle with Negan revs up in Season 8 this October.
Other great Carol scenes include Cherokee Rose with Daryl Dixon and her scenes with Lizzie, which were brutal and telling.
