This is the same man who flinched when he was touched back in Season 2.This is the same man who walled himself off from the group both mentally and physically - who wouldn’t open up to anyone, who wouldn’t trust anyone, who tried to pretend he didn’t need anyone, who hid every feeling except anger to avoid getting hurt.
THIS IS THE SAME MAN BUT THIS IS NOT THE SAME MAN
And Carol? This is the woman who was bruised and beaten, left with both emotional and physical scars by someone who should have loved and protected her. This is the woman who was timid and afraid back in Season 1, who didn’t know how to defend herself…who lost everything she had and then gained a family.
THIS IS THE SAME WOMAN BUT THIS IS NOT THE SAME WOMAN
