↳ I can’t profess to understand God’s plan, but when Christ promised a resurrection of the dead, I just thought he had something a little different in mind.
"You’re every bit as good as them. Every bit."
Carol is struggling to find herself worthy. She’s been reunited with her family but instead of feeling at home, she feels like an outsider. These are good people and she no longer consider herself a good person. She killed Karen, David, and Lizzie and can’t forget or move past it so she pulls away and everyone is caught off guard except for Daryl. This time it’s he who reminds Carol that she’s earned her place, that she’s done more for their family than anyone, and that she’s every bit as good as them. Every bit.
We ain’t dead.
I think she tests the battery looking for a sign. She wants to stay, but she’s so scared to. She thinks she doesn’t deserve to. She just killed Lizzie less than three days ago. 72 hours. So she pushes the button - if it’s dead she’ll stay, if it’s not - it’s a sign she shouldn’t be there.
She tests the battery, hoping for a sign, hoping for the choice to be out of her hands just this once.
Just this once.

She’s gonna be all right. She’s a survivor.
