A sneak peek at the Nov 13 episode
The Walking Dead have released a sneak peek clip at the November 13 episode which shows Daryl returning to Alexandria.
In an exclusive sneak peek clip via Entertainment Weekly, Rick is seen opening the gate to let Negan in, but Negan wants to do him a favor by putting Lucille into action.
At the end, the camera pans to the right and Daryl Dixon is seen among Negan, Dwight, and the rest of the Saviors. You can see the clip below.
The hit AMC show opened its new season last month with a shocking and brutal opening episode, which saw two members of Rick’s group – Glenn and Abraham – be killed by the show’s new nemesis, Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Daryl was taken prisoner by Negan’s men after he attacked the antagonist, which in turn saw Glenn be murdered by Negan in retaliation for Daryl’s show of resistance.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about how the traumatising events of that opening episode will have affected his character, Reedus said that Daryl would be unable to find closure over the deaths, particularly fan favourite Glen.
“He goes into a very dark place. He completely takes the weight of that and just carries that with him. He never forgives himself and he takes full responsibility,” Reedus said. “Although the thing is, Daryl didn’t say ‘Oh if I do this, they’ll kill Glenn.’ Nobody knows what’s going to happen with that guy with the bat. Nobody knows anything. But what he was doing was protecting Rosita. Negan had that bloody bat, waving it in her face, yelling at her, and it’s right in front of my face too. We were right next to each other. And he was picking on Rosita and Daryl stood up for her and he stood up for Abraham. The outcome of that, nobody knew that was going to happen.
“The weight of Glenn’s death is going to weigh on Daryl heavily, I know it does,” Reedus continued. “He gives up, he loses the fight, he’s keeping to himself, whatever’s happening to him, he thinks he deserves it. He’s going to let it happen, which is crushing. To take somebody wild like that — a wild, pure, honest fighter like that — and just strip him of his desire to fight back or fight for anything, it’s crushing.”
