Carol's story line was inconsistent and somewhat baffling in Season 6, but the strength of McBride's performance never wavered. Even when the writing isn't believable, McBride is. She fully commits, whether Carol is being a steely killer or a hyperventilating basket case. Her range was on full display during the Carol-focused bottle episode "The Same Boat," one of the strongest episodes of the season.
