The latest episode of 'The Walking Dead' took off just after the aftermath of events in Episode 12. We revisited the darker parts of Carol's psyche as she tries to come to terms with what happened.

TWD fans would be well-aware of the fact that Carol (Melissa McBride) has been battling mental health issues throughout the 10 seasons. However, there was something more unusual about her behavior in Episode 14.

The title of the episode is 'Look At The Flowers' which is a reference to the line Carol uttered before shooting Lizzie in the head.

Carol has been burning with revenge against Alpha for ages finally getting a small closure as she got to put Alpha's head on a pike. Carol decides to go off on a lengthy stint on her own, without vouching for Negan as she had promised to do so.

This is rather shocking, as it was just revealed a while ago that Negan was working on Carol's behalf as a double agent, so he could infiltrate the Whisperers and Carol could have the vengeance that she has been craving for ages. 

Instead, she lets him fend for himself and says that she "needs time alone".  This is a steady character trait for Carol, so no surprises there. Anyway, Carol heads off and her suppressed feelings come crashing down on her.

Alpha might be dead, but that doesn't stop her from troubling our heroes. The ghost of Alpha visits Carol and mocks her for every decision that she has made and brings up the dead children that she's left behind, including Sophia, Lizzie and Henry.

Carol is almost bitten by a Walker while she is battling these illusions, yet manages to kill it in time. She mutters, "It's never too late." It seems as if Carol is heading back to Alexandria, for one final showdown with the Whisperers, and in all probability, she just might not survive it. However, she won't go down without a good fight. 

In an interview with Comicbook, Melissa McBride opened up on how symbolic the words "it's never too late" were.

"I think it pretty much sums up her journey so far, that in a way it's never too late to do a lot of things. Even in that last line, she says it's never too late. It's not too late to save yourself. It's not too late to face what you need to face. It's never too late to ask for forgiveness. It's never too late to find understanding and it's never too late to save your life."
