1The Group Is Lying To Protect One Another
There have been a lot of lies on The Walking Dead in these first two episodes. For many viewers, it was never a possibility that anyone would keep Daryl and Rick away from Carol. But Morgan decided to keep this information for himself.
Daryl Dixon didn’t find out about Carol until Richard accidentally told him. After stopping Richard’s plan to attack the Saviors, which would have possibly led to the death of Carol, Daryl went to see her.
During their conversation, Daryl chose not to reveal Glenn and Abraham’s deaths.

“Morgan said you just left,” said Daryl on Carol’s doorstep, still tore up that Morgan lied to him. Eventually, Daryl muscles up the courage to ask Carol a very simple question: “Why’d you go…?”
Carol seems to be searching for an answer. Eventually, through tears, she replies, “I had to…” Later, in front of a fire, she told a little more about her thought process. “I couldn’t lose any other of them. I couldn’t lose you.”
Later, she admitted, “I couldn’t kill them,” about the Saviors who attacked her.
