The episode “Diverged” — on a floor degree, no less than — feels like one in every of The Walking Dead‘s maximum emotional episodes in contemporary reminiscence, as evidenced through the very obscure description AMC put out. “Daryl and Carol come to a fork within the highway and head their separate techniques. Each and every going into their very own form of survival mode, the very best of demanding situations change into a lot tougher,” the synopsis reads. “Will their particular person trips be the tipping level had to mend their friendship or is the gap between them everlasting?”
It is no secret that Daryl and Carol’s friendship is one of the closest at the program, however their non-public ideologies and existence traumas make it exhausting for them not to butt heads once in a while. Whether or not or now not this meant fork within the highway is literal or metaphorical does not truly topic, as it’s going to take a look at their mettle as folks and point out how badly they want one any other both method. Additionally it is a chance that the occasions of “To find Me” can have an effect on “Diverged,” making it even tougher to foresee what may occur on this tale.
At any charge, it is just about a for the reason that those two Walking Dead mainstays will reunite someday down the road since they are getting their very own spin-off collection someday. Even though, that display may transform a prequel set simply after Rick’s disappearance, meaning no matter alternatives they make in “Diverged” may finally end up sticking in the end.
