Carol became a character that embodies the phrase, “fierce with reality”. Her years of living in abuse taught her to assess a situation, and potential threats, in a very short amount of time. Now she is unafraid to take action to get rid of those threats. In practical terms Carol’s entire marriage was preparing her to not just survive the zombie apocalypse but thrive in it. Interestingly as The Walking Dead women get stronger the men are starting to devolve and fall apart.
