Spoilers if you’re yet to see The Walking Dead midseason 2 finale!
First up, McBride and Reedus explained to MTV Splashpage what the loss of Sophia means for Carol and the fractious survivors going forward:
“For my character Carol, she’s got to deal with the grief and how she’s going to move forward.
I think keeping hope alive for her represented, even though all the odds were against finding her alive, you just sort of cling to that hope. [Sophia represented] that unseen thing that’s going to carry you through and to have her come through the barn the way she did, I think it’s really throwing a lot of doubt on faith. What unseen thing is going to help us through this? Is it really out there?”
“I think for all of us she was a symbol of hope. If we could hold onto her then [we’d] maybe save a little piece of ourselves as well. Once that went down, all bets are off and everybody’s miserable and homicidal at this point, especially [Carol].”

Poor Dale, I hope he didn’t have to load the truck up by himself, seeing as this is pretty much Shane’s mess.
