It's the question fans have been pondering since Daryl placed a Cherokee rose on an unmarked grave: Is Carol really dead?

The Walking Dead: Is Carol really dead? And 4 other burning questions

Daryl (Norman Reedus) may have said his goodbye with the rose, but in these exclusive photos from Sunday's The Walking Dead, he seems to be on the hunt for something or someone. Has he actually let Carol (Melissa McBride) go or does he hope to find her — dead or alive — within the prison? (We didn't see a body go into that grave, after all.)

Check out the photos below and hit the comments with your thoughts on whether Carol is actually dead.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
