THE WALKING DEAD 2x04: Cherokee Rose
It’s a Cherokee Rose. The story is that when American soldiers were moving Indians off their land on the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee mothers were grieving and crying so much ‘cause they were losing their little ones along the way from exposure and disease and starvation. A lot of them just disappeared. So the elders, they said a prayer; asked for a sign to uplift the mothers’ spirits, give them strength and hope. The next day this rose started to grow where the mothers’ tears fell. I’m not fool enough to think there’s any flowers blooming for my brother. But I believe this one bloomed for your little girl.
This scene was what stuck to me the most when I watched the 4th episode - aside from the gruesome motherfucking zombie in the well, JFC; and partially because I’m biased with Daryl hahaha… It’s just touching how Daryl tries to at least comfort Carol after every time he comes back to their camp Sophia-less. Despite the search being fruitless at the moment, he at least gave the mother hope that they’d find Sophia soon.
