• Teasing the upcoming war with Negan, Scott Gimple tells TVLine that Carol’s “entire storyline has prepared her for this — she’s ready. The strength and bravery that she shows as a person this season, and the ingenuity that she employs… is very satisfying.”
• “Look at the flowers,” from Season 4, Episode 14, “The Grove,” is one of Syfy Wire‘s best TV quotes from the last 25 years: “It’s a terrible and emotional moment (Carol weeps while saying it, and pulling the trigger), and probably the biggest turning point for any one character on the whole show.”

• Yahoo TV bakes Carol’s beet and acorn cookies and reports that “the results were very surprising: Beet and acorn cookies are a good thing!”
• FanFest checks out 27 “behind-the-scenes photos from over the years going all the way back to Season 1.”
