There wasn’t any time for romance back in Season 7 of The Walking Dead, but fans are still hoping for more romance in the series. Among all of the characters on the show, fans are dying to see Daryl and Carol get together.

One new photo from AMC shows Daryl and Carol together next to Daryl’s ride. Carol is looking off in the distance, but Daryl faces the camera head-on. In addition to being together again, both characters look ready for action.

But, is it possible that this photo could mean more than friendship?

Express writes, “There have been hints for seasons now that the two characters would be getting together and now it looks like it could finally happen. Speaking about Carol’s storyline, showrunner Scott M. Gimple said of the impending war against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors: “Her entire storyline has prepared her for this. She’s ready.”

Gimple added, “The strength and bravery that she shows as a person this season and the ingenuity that she employs… is very satisfying.” As the show returns, it’s going to be All Out War among the two groups.

Season 8 Makes Room For Carol

While it’s likely that the bulk of Season 8 will focus on both groups trying to kill one another, it’s possible there’s still room for love. Last season, Michonne and Rick managed to find one another, so perhaps now so can Carol and Daryl.

Over the years, it has looked like Daryl hasn’t truly cared for anyone in a romantic sense as he has been looking for a family. At first, he only had Merle, so he’s been trying to figure out how to work and live within a family.

So perhaps as the war slows down, there will be room for Carol and Daryl to see if there’s something more there than friendship.

Do you think these two will ever find true love?

    maybe, but not with each other.

    I see a relationship between Carol & Ezekiel more then with Daryl. I have a feeling they may add a new female character which may end up on Daryls lap.

  • Denise

    They are incredible TOGETHER. We’ve watched their relationship evolve over 7 seasons. It’s time they go to the next step…an adult romantic relationship. Do I trust the writers…no I don’t. They use Caryl repeatedly for promotion, then pull the rug out from under us. I love them…hopeful but def don’t trust the writers.

  • Wendy Coffey Sherman

    yes they all ready love each other!! caryl forever

    It should have happened a long time but it feel like the show has moved in a different direction. I’ll always wonder what made them decide to drop this dynamic.

  • Keesha Ball

    I’ve thought about this lol. However, I think there are three totally different options that are more likely.
    1. Carol and Ezekial
    2. Maggie and Jesus
    3. This one is unfortunately the one I feel is gonna be the one…Daryl and Jesus.

    • Judy Celeste Maxwell

      Maggie and Jesus is out anyway, he already came out as gay to her.

      • Heather Anne

        I think it will be Daryl and Eric honestly… They have more of a background.

        • Carolyn Henson

          Eric is going to die ,it will be Aaron and Jesus.

          • Terry Ramsey Haskins

            i could totally see Maggie, Aaron and Jesus as a throuple. they both adore Maggie and would be excellent daddies to little Hershel Glenn. =D

    • cheri

      Pretty sure Jesus is gay on the show, maybe Jesus and Aaron?

  • Jessica Stroup

    I have a feeling that Ezekiel and Carol are going to get together. They would make a good couple and they seem to like each other more and more as they get to know each other better. Besides the king needs a queen and Carol deserves to be treated as one seeing as how her first husband treated her worse then dirt.
