With all the hype around this week’s upcoming episode, there are a lot of rumors and theories about the fate of the last remaining Dixon brother. Although, personally, I’m all for the Daryl eats Beth theory, it’s the fate of the former that has recently spurned both excitement from his critics and renewed threats from his Vixens.
Vote below and let us know where you fall. Are you pro Dixon-Death, or anti? Let us know why in the comments![yop_poll id=”18″]
Then Jesus will come to the rescue….
Hell yeah! Abraham, Jesus and Dwight, please. I WANT DWIGHT IN THE TV SHOW!
what cracks me up is that there is an ABRAHAM- an EZIEKIEL- AND A FREAKING JESUS! doesnt this sound a bit familiar?
NOT making fun of the comics btw…
There’s a lot of catholic connotations thru the entire comic. A lot of
mystical references, like any reflection about the undead that makes Hershel, and the importance of Gabriel (like the angel) in
such a hard moment for the group isn’t coincidence. The twins killed
each other like Cain and Abel. And I can continue all night long… Yeap, there’s a lot of biblical references in this story.
I find that interesting. I am a christian myself, so its preetttyyy easy to spot things like that. i am a definate walking dead fan no less!
just so you know the twins didn’t kill each other. No Cain and Abel Reference.
Do yo know the story about Cain and Abel? “kill each other” is just a way to say it. Off course they don’t kill each other. One kill the other. The reference is obvious.
I have heard, Daryl becomes Dwight, after the Hunters are done with him, and poor Beth Negan finds / saves Daryl,, and grooms him into Dwight. The details are still left to be ” Ironed ” out…..lmao
I could be all fangirl about this, but the truth is, I think Daryl brings an interesting masculinity to the show: not a father (Rick), not a husband (Glenn), but a brother, and someone who, unlike almost everyone else, never really fit in in the world before the walkers.
I don’t mind if they tone down the Highlander badassery a bit, but I think there are lots of interesting character things to be done with him.
Oh god Lizzy just for you posting this people are going to want to throw Crazy Cheese and Chocolate Pudding at you. They will say “HOW DARE YOU EVEN THINK THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” So I’m just trying to give you a heads up cause no one wants Crazy Pudding in their hair. Now I think not everyone will survive just read the comic and you will know. If he dies I hope he goes out in a blaze of glory…Cue Bon Jovi….. I really hope he will make it. Daryl is a big BIG part of the show and I would hate to see him leave. I hated to see Merle die….So Norman Reedus if for some CRAZY reason Robert Kirkman turns into an ASS CLOWN and kills you, you my friend have been nothing but a big ol’ zombie killin ass kicker.
I heard a pretty legitimate rumor that Dwayne ” The Rock ” Johnson will be cast as Ezekiel on the show.
Oh man do you know just how awesome that would be. I really hope so man I really really hopes so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i hope daryl doesnt die hes my fav charater
He better not die
Daryl is to popular to die if he dies many of the fans that watch the show will stop watching Daryl and Michonne are my favorite characters if one of them die i would be very sad and if u kill Daryl his fans will kill the show so dont kill him >:(
It is a tv show everyone, so if he dies he dies. Seriously, I love all the characters but if that is the direction it is the direction. Remember, originally he was going to be killed off early so he lasted this long. Let the writers do their job and we will still enjoy watching.
If he dies, it has to be in a very emotional and epic way. Not hiding in trunks with that bland blonde. It’s a great character that represent a badass way to be in an apocalyptical world, but at the same time he suffered a lot (in the pre-Apocalypse and during Apocalypse) with all the child abuse and the lost of his big brother, who never understood him. So, if he dies now, this season, it just will be a turnaround move for the show, and it’ll not be cool at all. If he dies (he will, be ready for it, fans of Daryl, he will) it has to be the most memorable moment of the entire show. like Shane’s death.
Well said except that I like Beth. I look at her as she is. A young woman growing up in an apocalyptic world. Aside from the fact that all of her family except for her big sister now, has been killed off. She’s lost friends too. Not sure many other teenage girls would be any different in that situation.
Yep…a chick who once wanted to die & is now urging Daryl not to give up!
Daryl Dixon can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves .
Is he #2 under Morgan Freeman, Morgan Freeman?
No one can touch Freeman
You’ve seen that “True Facts About Morgan Freeman” video? Lol, that was what I was referencing.
When Morgan Freeman makes a documentary he narrates it first and then nature does the rest
No I hadn’t by the way I just thought you were a Morgan Freeman fan but that video was hilarious.
I am a fan & your comments made me think of that video. I almost lost a cup of coffee, laughing at your comments!
When Daryl Dixon was a baby, he didn’t suck his mother’s breast . His mother served him whiskey, straight out the bottle.
It’s obvious when you see comments from people that really just watch the show. Those who read the comics know very well that every character is up for grabs when it comes to death. Most of them come out of knowhere, and most of them are very brutal. I very much like Daryl, but I think that the fan craze that follows him might actually be the cause for his death.
I like Daryl also but I wouldn’t stop watching the show if he died by no means . I think you are right they may kill him off just because everyone thinks he’s safe .
Kirkman has stated, “Don’t dare me!”
I liked daryl…at first…but ever since merle died, he’s acted different…less sweet. it doesnt seem like he feels the same way for everyone. he just seems to macho now. though his death would be sad, it wouldnt IN THE LEAST make me stop watching my favorite show!
He lost his bro. He lost the security of the prison. Carol’s gone. Hershel died. They’re all separated & he doesn’t know who made it out alive. That would make him revert to what he used to be when we first saw him.
very true. Actually, i posted that before i looked at the top ten daryl moments, wherin i decided to like him again. And how you put it DID make me sorry for him.
at least carl had pudding. All daryl has is beth singing kumbiya. now he doesnt anymore. Daryl: “sorry that i threw you in the fire beth. but i did give fair warning.”
Glad I wasn’t drinking when I read this! Wouldn’t have been pretty!! Aren’t you glad this death hype isn’t over your dude?
oh yes. but if that were a poll, I’d go all crazy..cheese…pun intended…..But honestly, carl just cant die. i would SERIOUSLY stop watching if he was killed off! Daryl….according to the poll for me…meh…
I had to vote daryl dies we riot, I would be upset but I wouldn’t riot or stop watching. I see so many people who claim to be fans but say they would quit watching the show. I would be heartbroken and think it would leave a big hole in the show even with the new character additions but I wouldn’t be able to stop watching no matter how much I’d miss Norman.
There are Reedus fans & then there are Walking Dead fans.
Cause Daryl is my PEEPS! He’s the only one with real balls on the show. Daryl cuts to the chase and does what has to get done..
I think ALL the men have come through on this show, including Stookey who is coming around. Eugene is the one that we need worry about a slack sack!
Jesus… never seen that kinda thing before. Could u guys pls stop sucking Daryl’s motherfucking balls? He was meant to die after finding his brother. Die, motherfucking die.
You call dibs ?
I don’t really care care either way. Daryl is a great character, but people need to over that he’s going to die. In fact when he evetually does die tthe news coverage of the roit will be so awesome. Small police force subues hordes of daryl fangirls in a matter of minutes.
Without the bike, he’s not Daryl. Not really, but I do miss the bad ass bike. I’ll miss him, but i’ll still watch.
While he have that crossbow, he’s still dangerous.
Yea, but not as cool.
I saw one of the sneak peeks for the 412, and Daryl is running out of arrows. He shoot one and he realize that they’re no longer strong enough to be a good weapon. He broke it. That’s how he’s starting to “die”, in a cinematographic way.
An automatic rifle is seriously a much more dangerous weapon than a crossbow. Rewatch terminator 2, toward the end sarah conner tries to gun down the computer programer with a silenced automatic rifle. Quiet and much more dangerous. Added bonus of not putting zombie covered arrows in your mouth.
Don’t tell me. I’m in team Abraham too, bro.
Daryls bike is just a concept borrowed from the comic version of Rick. Theres an early issue cover showing rick riding a motocycle. It pretty much looks like darly from the tv show.

A world without darly is a world not worth living for
I would kinda like Daryl to turn into a dwight remix, that would be kinda cool.
Everyone thinks Daryl might die this week… no way Daryl is going to die when everyone thinks it might happen.
AMC has to be looking at economics and ratings when it comes to contemplating whether or not Daryl lives or dies. Daryl Dixon/Norman Reedus brings a LOT of viewers to the show so if he died, viewership would be hurt and The Walking Dead could potentially no longer be the highest-rated show in the 18-49 demographic or whatever category it’s in. And economics aside, Daryl is one of the core characters like Rick on the show and his absence would be felt in the continuation of the overall story and plot lines. That’s my two cents.
I agree 100% I think the network doesn’t dare to do it because of Daryl’s popularity, so I think he’ll be around for a good long time. Keep in mind though, if the show (hopefully) continues for a few more years or more, actors may eventually burned out. It’s happened in the series before. Fortunately, Norman Reedus seems to want to stay. Personally, I think it will happen eventually. It’s my concern every season that this will be the end for Daryl. I would be devastated if he died. Also, both Tyreese and Abraham are in the series now and both at different stages in the comic became Rick’s right hand man which makes me a little concerned for Daryl. If they bring Jesus into the series I think it’ll mark the end for Daryl.
Daryl has essentially assumed Andrea ‘s role from the Comic, as the Scout/sniper and Rick’s confidant. But, with the arrival of Abraham, I just don’t see of the series can tolerant that much testosterone next to Rick. No one’s even concerned about poor Tyreese, Rick’s original Right Hand from the Comic. The TV series certainly did his character an injustice, reducing him to more of a bit player than T-Dog.
Personally, I think Daryl and Carol will leave the group, after Daryl has to kill Tyreese, to protect Carol.
Dary’s death would cause ratings to slump, I’m sure. But the show would come back with a vengeance…something to make up for it. The “wow” of killing Daryl off would probably even bring back some people who slacked off from watching the show, simply because they thought certainly DARYL would be safe! “What will that show do next?!”
I’m like Gregarious…I don’t feel that’s gonna happen when people expect it, which is when a character ends up on Talking Dead. Deaths are usually surprise guests anyway.
For me, if/when it does happen, it will affect me like Hershel’s death. It will hurt, but I’m a Walking Dead fan, not a Reedus fan, so I will keep watching.
I have said this since the beginning of the season. Anyone can die. And the only way to really prove that is by killing Daryll. I admit, it would make me sick. But remember Rick’s encounter with the men at the house, the men I believe to be the hunters. If they kill Rick, sure, we can say that, but killing such a fan favorite as Daryll will eat at people who will still continue to watch. We enjoy episodes without Daryll just as much it would seem, as 2 of the last 3 episodes didn’t really center around him. So, it would seem that if Daryll dies, anybody can die. Judith, Carl, Rick, Michonne, anybody.
Daryl is the almighty savior . He can save the world
Wow. This poll has left me extremely disappointed.
How’d you vote?
The non-majority side.
What is it about Daryl that you don’t like? Just like to hear your POV. 😉
You’ve probably heard it all before.
It’s just, to me, he’s too big. In his character we’ve found a heartthrob that practically overshadows the actual main character. His character has grown into something that seems artificial. We started with a redneck and ended up with a “bad boy with a heart of gold” that even comes with a leather jacket and motorcycle. His character seems entirely shaped to fit the hearts of the rabid groupie fans he has acquired. In season 3 it seemed so important to make sure Daryl has his zombie killing screen-time instead of something with meaning for any character.
Plus he’s Rick’s “right hand man,” so to speak. Rick has had numerous characters that served that purpose in the comic. Now, the show doesn’t need to be exactly like the comic, of course. But the point is that in the Walking Dead people die. Even (ESPECIALLY, really) the strong ones you’d never expect to die. It’s a brutal world where kids get shot, people are axed down in cold blood, we lose our loved ones, and no one truly makes it in the end. Daryl has become too big. In the world of TWD it doesn’t matter if you’re strong, weak, intelligent, young, or old. What matters is you’re alive. Keeping a character like Daryl alive based solely on his toughness and how much the fans love him seems counterproductive to everything the Walking Dead is.
Now see, this is why I was hoping that you’d elaborate! You’re well written. I voted “Riot”, only because nothing else really fit for me…”Meh” didn’t because it would hurt to see Daryl taken out, BUT I totally agree with you–there shouldn’t be any sense of a character on The Walking Dead being immortal and it feels like Daryl’s time has really run its course!! I think you said it best in your last sentence. Thanks for sharing your POV!
Thank you. It’s fun to talk when someone is willing to listen, even with differing view points.
I love to hear a difference in opinion. It may make me think about my own in a different way. Besides, if we all thought alike, we’d have to come up with some other way to make the conversation interesting.
I love Daryl. Don’t get me wrong but right now Daryl is Ricks right hand man and if you read the comics then you know Abraham becomes Ricks right hand man. I really think that Daryl going to die. i’ve been waiting for it. i wont mind if he dies and everyone saying he deserves a crazy awesome death…i hope Robert Kirkman makes his death pathetic because all the shit Daryl’s done is the show is abit farfetch like the walker meat sheild. ill be glad when the show ventures more towards the comics and kills off unnecessary characters!
Beth is more likely to die than Daryl. I would mourn the loss of Daryl, Beth not-so-much.
I wont riot and I will still watch the show but I will be upset and yes probably shed a tear or two (ALOT lol) I just hope he is one of the one’s that make it till the end 🙂
I want Daryl to die because my favorite character in the comics (Tyreese) isn’t Rick’s right hand man because Daryl fills that position. If Daryl died, Tyreese could be in a larger role that his character deserves
I think daryl is the only realistic character this season for the simple fact that he thouroghly observes his surrounding before comitting to any plan of action.
I don’t give a rats ass if Daryl dies. Any of the characters that don’t exits in the comics can go anytime as far as I’m concerned. I don’t hate his character but I don’t have any emotional attachment to him.
With that being said, are you disappointed when the show deviates from the comics?
Daryl is still one of my favorite characters, although his presence fizzled out in the first half of this season. I think he may get killed off, in time, but for now I see other characters as targets before him. I just keep thinking back to the comics and I’m trying to place certain show characters in the place of comic book characters seeing how some people are still around (Andrea) and some people are dead (Tyreese/Carol). We’ll see what happens, but I don’t see Daryl dying in anything but a really big battle, like Hershel did.
I’m still very much looking forward to some of the new (bigger named) characters getting introduced too. Jesus!
I sure hope their not gonna kill Daryl off, cause I just love him, I wanna see him and Rick hook back up it’s gonna be awesome, I think there’s so much more for Daryl’s character to offer. I’ve just recently started watching the talking dead, have they ever had someone not killed off on the show…..can’t wait till tomorrow to find out…
If Daryl dies I am done with The Walking Dead!
I’m hoping Daryl dies soon. After Merle died, Daryl hasn’t been as interesting of a character, only being absolutely perfect in every zombie kill and line. Daryl beng Ricks right hand man is taking away from the show being able to show off characters like Tyreese. Now with Abraham AND Tyreese, it’s really time for Daryl to go, and go out well.
I feel like the only reason Daryl can’t die yet is because he is too much of a survivor to fall from a simple mistake. He is destined to live far beyond those he loves. Some men just can’t die, even when it’s obvious they should. Destined to walk the earth like Caine.
Morgan is destined to walk the earth.
I’m not going to riot…I’m gonna lay The Walking Dead to a permanent rest that’s my thoughts…I can admit I will be saddened and angered. I realize someone has to go but they have a lot they can do with Daryl all his potential is yet to be discovered…
The above referenced Tweet could indicate that Kinney (Beth) has shot her final ep.
What season are they currently showing on AMC?
We’re on the finishing side of Season 4.
wow. whered the slogan “if daryl dies, we riot!” come from? I mean, Daryl is awesome and all……but its not like he’s the future of the show! and oh, yeah, btw, kirkman takes that slogan as a dare.
I would love a shirt with carl on it. it would say: “HOLY CRAP HOW IS HE THIS FREAKING GORGEOUS?”
I would wear that a lot….
I really hope daryl dosent die. I barely got over hershal i dont want to see my favorite character go out when theres so many more episodes left in this series. Daryl is such an ispiration to strength for me. The walking dead wouldnt be the same without him. Its still gunna be my favorite show with or without him but i enjoy the show a lot more with him in it. It just dosent seem rigjt to kill him off at this point.
If Daryl dies I’m going to cry soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad I mean he cant die.ifn her does oh I’ll be mad:-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[
If daryl……dies we quit watching the show.
I think this safe place their talking about is a cave…whata you guys think…
their just trying to beat the Oscar ratings that’s all, that’s why all this nonsence about Daryl dying, we will all be watching the walking dead for sure and not the Oscars…
If Daryl dies my family might stop watching the walking dead along with other people,He’s cute! And he’s a bad but.(not allowed to cuss)
Kill him already i don’t really care about Daryl besides i wanna see the riot.
Daryl is by far my favorite character on the show. Not because of his looks (but that definetly helps, hes so friggin sexy! Men have their favorite sexy characters on the show, you need to leave one for the woman too!), but because of how I feel he brings alot of entertainment to the show. If it wasn’t for him, I feel like alot of storyline would have been cut out (going back for Meryle, at the rooftop and at Woodbury, continuing the search for Sophia after pretty much everyone else quit, Bringing Meryl back into the group at the prison for a bit, getting seperated with Beth, and now with this group of men who I honestly think are cannabills) he just brings alot of the story together.. idk. sorry for my spelling too. I apparently cant spell for my life. haha!
