Hi Friendly Anon,

Thank you for your message! Don’t worry your pretty little head - there are no such thing as stupid questions as long as they are polite and messaging me is as far away from a “bother” as it can possibly get.

My ask box is open for a reason!

To answer your question though I did a little bit of digging so hopefully this will be helpful;

Ellen Louise Ripley is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Alien film series played by American actress Sigourney Weaver. The character is often considered as one of the best female protagonists of all time: it was heralded for challenging gender roles, particularly in the science fiction, action and horror genres, gave world recognition to Weaver and remains her most famous role to date.(x

"Carol is channeling Ripley" (X)

By saying that “Carol is channeling Ripley” the author of that article is essentially identifying Carol as one of the biggest female “bad-ass” characters in cinematic history. There is a definite similarity between these two tough women especially because both Carol and Ripley were not just active fighters but also had strong protective, nurturing and in turn mothering instincts that led them to go to extremes in order to protect the ones they cared about - specifically children!

Ripley and Carol are both women whose stories focused on their personal transformation of empowerment and growth without the need to have a central alpha male to carry their arc AND more importantly the “children” they were responsible for didn’t stunt or pigeon hole their roles into once again being just the “mothers” nor did they automatically shift them completely into sacrificial mode as the only possible outcome at the end.

As we all know Carols personal growth and dramatic change entertained since the beginning of the series has become one of the most fascinating and inspiring themes of TWD AND while those of us who loved her character all along already knew the potential of her inner strength, seeing just how far she’s come is still something we get more than a little excited about.

Hearing the praise Carol and in turn Melissa McBride has been getting before the Season has even started is something worth celebrating for sure BUT having her compared to such a tough cookie like the Alien Slayer Ellen Ripley herself while not all that surprising is still worth flailing of pretty epic proportions!

Carol Peletier who admitted being afraid of her scummy husband Eds shadow will be charging into the confusingly evil Terminus abode to help save her family…and CLAIM her POOKIE!!!

Melissa McBride did say that Carol will be doing some “BADASSY” things BUT this has essentially surpassed all my expectations and is most likely going to BLOW my mind in what 12 days….

How Excited Are We!!!

Love XOXO

SANJA

I always have said she has totally had a Ripley transformation!! Also her arc reminds me a lot of Linda Hamilton in Terminator 1/2. She starts out as this mousy, afraid thing and you see her transformed into this just Alpha female, with zero need for a male to come save the day. I remember in the beginning of Season 3 the shot of Carol in the guard tower with the AK. She just looks fierce and it’s continued to get better and better. Very few woman have had the privilege to be put right up there with the men, and I love that Carol is one of them!!

Ben Nichols - The Last Pale Light in The West  →

In my hands, I hold the ashes
In my veins, black pitch drums
In my chest, if I can catch this
In my way, the setting sun
Dark clouds gather ‘round me
Due northwest, the soul is bound
And I will go on ahead, free
There’s a light yet to be found

The last pale light in the west
The last pale light in the west

And I ask for no redemption
In this cold and barron place
Still I see the faint reflection
And so by it, I got my way

The last pale light in the west

Maybe we’ll meet again, when we are slightly older and our minds less hectic, and I’ll be right for you and you’ll be right for me. But right now, I am chaos to your thoughts and you are poison to my heart.

I am homesick for a place I am not sure even exists. One where my heart is full. My body loved. And my soul understood.

This is my soundtrack that’s been on repeat for over 2 weeks. I am unsure if it’s because I had already loved a few of these songs already, or the fact I have now seen The Walking Dead Season 4 enough times. That when a certain song comes on I’m taken back to that very moment, to when it’s at the end of the walker outbreak in the sick ward. Just when they make it back with the meds and Hershel is so weary so distressed he can’t even look down or find solace in his beloved bible. Oats in the Water was used perfectly for that scene.  Rick driving back to the prison without Carol with Serpents playing, to perfect!! The Governors attack, Daryl and Beth burning down that house, Lizzie, all completely soul touching moments. Mostly due across to the terrific acting and writing but the music brings it together. So I find myself listening to this on repeat going threw an array of emotions but it’s fucking fantastic. As have been every single score/soundtrack that TWD has had!!!

Apparently, apart from being everything she already is to Daryl, Carol is now his right hand. And has his back.

   The way they stand in every picture we’ve seen so far is screaming it.
