Despite having an issue with her previous actions during their time in the prison, Rick and Carol's relationship appeared to have solidified ever since she rescued the gang from the cannibals at Terminus. A look back at their evolving friendship as they face new dangers ahead.
Rick and Carol haven't had the most easiest of friendships in the zombie apocalypse. After all, Rick banished Carol from the prison stronghold after discovering her horrific actions towards her fellow survivors in Season 4. What complicated this relationship is that Carol was also Judith's protector and care-giver, after the Governor overran the prison with forces and subsequent walker attack.

Their awkward reunion during the start of Season 5, showed Rick willing to forget her past actions and fully welcome her back with the group. Carol may not have been so comfortable though as we witnessed her leaving the group, while at Father Gabriel's church. Had Daryl not been to confront her, Carol would have certainly left the group. This time, on her own accord. Things have dramatically changed again during their time in Alexandria.

With Season 5 final episodes, we saw Rick and Carol rekindle their friendship and trust as they continued to survey and understand their new surroundings in a bigger world. Carol confided in Rick to take care of delicate and volatile matters in Alexandria, that may prove dangerous to everyone in the community.
