Its one thing for Carl to wander off on a farm--particularly when he does not have the structure of a traditional school, friends and normal chores, but the Governor leaving a girl (Penny 2.0) to wage an assbrained war is another. The former demands structure (to keep Carl busy and developing like a normal kid). The latter situation is quite simple: if you "love" this girl so much, then keep your ass at the camp / stop pretending you are some military mind (instead of the bullshit artist he was all along). Norman Reedus is 44, but we do not know how old Daryl is. Even if Daryl is--say...40. And? Are you saying you have not seen men in that age range in relationships with women around Beth's age (18 - 19) at all?
