New "Walking Dead" Promo and a Terrible Rumor!
What will happen to our good buddy Daryl? Will he have to fight his own brother? Perhaps even kill him? How about Andrea? Will she quit having sex with the governor long enough to see what a prick he is? And how about Rick? How much more can he take before he loses it completely?
Now, I have seen rumors flying around on the internet that Daryl gets the ax this season, and it has generated a HUGE negative response, and rightly so. After all, Daryl has become everyone's favorite hero, with his willingness to eat any 'critter' that hops/flies/crawls across his path and his lethal squeeze on that crossbow trigger.
I think we're all in agreement that if ANYone could survive a zombie apocalypse, it would be Daryl Dixon. However in a realistic view of the end of days, anyone could go at any time, and I applaud the writers for their courage to illustrate that to us (Sophia). It keeps us on edge and completely fearful...exactly where we should be.
BUT... I have seen a few interviews with Robert Kirkman where he talks about his excitement over the characters of Daryl and Merle because they weren't in his comic. He's genuinely interested in how they interact within the world of his creation. So knowing that, do I think he would allow this character to be killed off in season three? I don't think so. Season seven or eight? Possibly.
Maybe I should send him one of my care packages to ensure his survival.
Anyway, we're all dying to know what happens next, and our good buddies at AMC know that, so they have given us a tiny nugget of a glimpse of what's to come in a new promo video. It's not much in terms of info, but it's MORE than enough to get our zombie killing fur all bristled up!
