Caryl shippers, you might have to wait a little longer for that happy ending and perhaps it may take quite a while. Fans have been eagerly waiting for a romance to brew between Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) because they've both suffered enough in their lives (well, who hasn't on that apocalyptic show?). However, their friendship went through a rough patch in Season 10, ever since the escape from the cave. After making a pact with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) to get Alpha's (Samantha Morton) head on a stick, Carol decided to go off on her own, only to realize that she still has a purpose left. It's time for her to fight in the Whisperer War and for all we know, this might just be her last.

During the Comic-Con 'The Walking Dead' panel, the stars of the show, along with the showrunners addressed several questions about the future of the survivors, as well as the constant romance between Carol and Daryl. The hilarious part of the panel was when Melissa just said "Meh" at the idea of a romance between the two of them, and the rest of the cast kept pulling her leg throughout the discussion. So sorry Caryl fans, you might not get quite want you want, going by Melissa's reactions.

Writer Angela Kang explained, "They have one of the coolest relationships in the show, so, you know...it gets complicated and they have a long road to travel."  She said that they are "real" with each other, but that also means that their hurt runs deep. 

Meanwhile, fans are on their own trip. One wrote, "Daryl and Carol will get married some day damn it I want that to happen in season 11."

"I don't even know how to type out @mcbridemelissa's response to @hardwickwhen he asked how are things between Carol & Daryl? There's a drawing. I hope their relationship becomes FB official in season 11," another wrote. 

"Carol & Daryl have such a unique relationship... the hurts can run pretty deep. @angelakang says they have quite a road to travel. Here's to #CARYL going canon soon. <3 <3 <3 #TWD #SDCC #ComicConAtHome #TheWalkingDead," a fan tweeted.
