Melissa McBride discusses Carol, ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4 development, what she would do

One of the key shockers of the new season of The Walking Dead was the fate of Carol and Rick’s difficult decision.

If you don’t want to have the details spoiled, then please stop reading now because Rick’s decision is the key talking point with actress Melissa McBride in a recent interview with EW.

She is unpredictable, and making these unilateral decisions, and why is she doing this? He can’t quite make out the psyche going on there.”

McBride claims that she sees both sides of the decision to keep Carol close and the decision to abandon her.

“I’m seeing a lot of divisiveness and like I said there are people that can understand Rick’s point of view for saying that he is protecting her again. It’s Sheriff Rick being very methodical about his decision. And, in a way, maybe protecting Carol from the consequences of her actions as far as Tyreese is concerned. He does not want to create a big divide among the group. And on the other hand, you have people that think he’s overreacting and to leave this woman old cold on the road is not fair.”

She then explained how she didn’t even know the details at the beginning of the season.

“I learned that as we went along. I love the way they go about this with us as far as the scripts and when they come and how much we know when. I particularly like the way we don’t know everything up front. But the writing is so good they’re not pulling stuff that is completely out of character for these people. It makes sense for who they are. It makes sense for the circumstances they’re going to find themselves in as we get further and further into the season.”
