Where we last saw them physically: On the road to Terminus with Tyreese and Judith.
What they had been through emotionally: Where to start? As one of the show's longest-running protagonists, Carol has seen more than enough tragedy -- including seeing her daughter die -- and has by now fully transitioned from being a hapless victim to a hard-edged survivor. She reconnected with Tyreese, baby Judith, and tween sisters Mika and Lizzie after the prison was overrun, but had to harbor a dark secret while dealing with Lizzie's increasing instability. When tragedy struck their small group, Carol was forced to play the role of Angel of Death, and she finally came clean to Tyreese about killing his girlfriend Karen. She's entering season 5 with blood on her hands and a guilty conscience.
