    What Will Happen if Caryl Actually Does Go Canon?

    While I love this pairing to bits and pieces I am starting to have deep reservations about how the viewership will react if the writers do actually decide to go where they should have a long long time ago. Right now it seems as though fans either love the idea or hate it. Do you thing fans will hate it out of spite or embrace it? Discuss.

    They are not going to happen, period. What will it take for people to finally realize that? It's been 9 seasons and not even a romantic tease

    I think the Caryl fans will love it but everyone else will hate it.

    If they hate it, I doubt many will because of spite but because Daryl and Carol do not have romantic chemistry based on how the characters have been written.

    I enjoyed the heck out of Caryl for years, but now it would be a case of too little, too late. I have no good will toward the show in respect to Caryl. They used it and teased it unmercifully expecting their cake and to eat it, too (which they got on the backs of formerly devoted fans). If they ever tried to make this a canon couple at this point it would be a joke.

    It can, I don't mind. but why or for what purpose? Caryl happening is not that relevant in the story at this point.

    Caryl shippers would be ecstatic, most Carol fans (like me) would be happy enough. Bethylers (especially TD), anyone-but-Carolers, other Daryl shippers and Carol and/or Daryl haters would be pissed off. I suspect the general audience, with whom both characters are apparently still very popular, would like it.

    Myself, I’d like it fine if they earned it. In real life as in fiction, BFFs sometimes become lovers but Carol and Daryl (especially) would first have get to a place in their relationship where it could happen. I still think it might, near the end.

    Gimple used Caryl to occasionally pander and tease while Kang seems to be nurturing the Caryl friendship. The Caryl scenes in the last episode were lovely.

    I think most people like Caryl the way they are now so I would expect a lot of "Why couldn't they just stay friends?" type of comments. Personally, I think the chance to make Caryl canon is long gone. Of course they could still do it but the magic isnt there anymore and its not like its being teased as some sort of "will they, wont they" relationship. Its obvious that its just a deep, platonic relationship and turning it romantic might ruin it for some people.

    I would be alright with it, though as some have said above, they need to earn it, and the timing needs to be right. Nurturing the friendship angle is good, because sometimes the friendship needs to be tended and deepened first, before more can happen and feel even remotely natural. As of the ending of 8A, the timing just doesn't feel right.
    As far as chemistry, they've certainly had it in seasons before, I don't understand how some can deny that. On the other hand, both characters have had past chemistry with others as well, so it might be a mix of good acting and character compatibility.
    But with the introduction of a new bad, again, the timing would just not be right.

    I hope it goes Canon just to piss off the people that hate it and it would never happen. How is that for honesty.
