Since Rick, Darrell, Carol, and the rest of the group have landed in the gated community of Alexandria there has been a marked and creepy change in Carol’s outward personality. Since setting foot in the town Carol has put on the mask of a helpless housewife.
The charade hit new heights in the latest episode “Forget” (Season 5, Episode 13) when Carol baked cookies for the town’s welcome party. It was all just an elaborate ruse for Carol to break into the town’s armory for extra weapons. Carol’s plan almost backfires when young Sam follows her in search of more cookies.
Carol calmly and quite creepily explains to Sam that if he tells anyone that she was in the armory that she will feed him to walkers outside the walls.
“Or,” she tells Sam, “you can promise not to ever tell anyone what you saw. And then nothing will happen. And you’ll get cookies.”
The scene was awesome and foretells that some serious action could be on the way for the people of Alexandria.
In the meantime while you wait for Sunday’s new episode, AMC has been nice enough to share Carol’s cookie recipe (sans walker threats).
Nothing like watching zombies tear into flesh while you tear into chocolate chip cookies.
