AMC’s The Walking Dead might be pushing Carol and King Ezekiel together, but we’ve still got hope that “Caryl,” the romantic pairing Carol and Daryl, will end up as the ultimate undead-fighting couple. For the latest episode of Total Shipshow, cosplayer and YouTuber Kristen Corradeno explains why Carol and Daryl’s deep friendship should actually turn into something more—even if their bond isn’t sexual, or even romantic at times.

I’m not as plugged in as I used to be but man did this show have some toxic shipping going on for a while. That said, I’m still Team Platonic Caryl. I don’t think a romantic angle would enhance my appreciation and enjoyment of their relationship, but my shipping heart bids fans to go forth and carry their ship flag (respectfully and responsibly).
