With such a Daryl-centric episode on the horizon, we took to Twitter to ask people their favorite #DarylMemories. Inspired by their responses, we decided to make a list of our own! We present, in a very particular order, our top Daryl Dixon moments from the last four seasons.
10. Getting up in Bob’s face about the booze
After Bob puts the whole group in jeopardy in Episode 404, “Indifference,” Daryl takes a no-nonsense approach to dealing with the situation. “You take one sip before those meds get in our people and I will BEAT your ass. You hear me?” Our hero!
9. Daryl on the bridge slamming a walker’s head in the trunk! Nice!
From Episode 310, “Home.” Not much more needs to be said about that one. Don’t click this if you’re eating.
8. Daryl hallucinating about Merle
Bloody and bruised, Daryl wakes up to find Merle scolding him for searching for Sophia but not him. Daryl realizes it’s a hallucination when he sees that Merle still has his right hand, but that doesn’t make it any less eerie when Merle warns him that the group will never care for him like his brother.
7. Daryl’s Introduction
We first heard tale of Daryl right after Merle is left to die on the roof, but it was his actual entrance that left an impression. He emerges from the woods trailing a deer, only to find it being snacked on by a walker. His response? Crossbow bolt to the head. We instantly loved that weapon, and it would grow to be a fan favorite.
6. The Cherokee rose for Sophia! UGH!
“It’s a Cherokee Rose. The story is that when American soldiers were moving Indians off their land on the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee mothers were grieving and crying so much ’cause they were losing their little ones along the way from exposure and disease and starvation. A lot of them just disappeared. So the elders, they said a prayer; asked for a sign to uplift the mothers’ spirits, give them strength and hope. The next day this rose started to grow where the mothers’ tears fell. I’m not fool enough to think there’s any flowers blooming for my brother. But I believe this one bloomed for your little girl.”
5. When he ended Dale’s suffering
When Rick hesitates to kill Dale, Daryl is there to finish the job. And later, when Carol has her doubts about Rick’s leadership, Daryl shuts her down and reassures her that Rick is still a man of honor. This is the moment when we know Daryl is going to be Rick’s loyal right-hand man. RIP Dale!
4. When he had to kill Merle
And then when he cries, and falls to the ground? HEARTBREAKING.
3. When he defended Glenn
No moment has made his character development through the television series more clear. He’s come a long way from Season 1, and this moment proves it when he correct Merle that Glenn is, in fact, Korean.
2. Grenade down the Tank
It spawned several memes (“I’ve got a tank. We’ve got a Daryl.” and “You brought a tank to a Daryl fight!” to name a few) and may go down in TWD history as one of the most coolest moments in the show. The way he pitches it effortlessly… so good.
1. Coining L’il Ass Kicker
Nothing says badass with a heart of gold like this moment.
Do you think we left anything out? What are your favorite Daryl moments? Let us know in the comments!
With all this Daryl stuff flooding the site, it sure feels like he may be the next character to go!
I know I really hope they don’t kill him off but I imagine he must be making a lot of money. He is the most well known actor on the show.
He’ll always be “Daryl”. I’ve come across some movies & said, “Hey, there’s Merle!” or “Man, I didn’t realize that that’s Daryl in Blade 2!”
From the moment he opened his mouth in S1, I knew he was Blade’s side kick 😀 I had a crush on him back then. Too bad he was a vampy turn coat lol
Daryl Dixon can divide by zero
Daryl Dixon once created a flamethrower by urinating into a lighter .
Darry’s going to be the next Chuck Norris, but BETTER.
He is on his way
daryl beat temple run…..
the real version…
crap. i was just starting to get over the fact that daryl might die this season, then i read the top ten, and it got me liking him again!
Thanks alot Lizzie Iverson!
Guys, what do you think of the BETHYL? Any of you digging that ship? IAM! 😀
I was thinking that was going to happen but it might be frowned upon because she is 17 but who knows Daryl could be 17 also .
I’d be totally shocked if Daryl was under 20! They just don’t fit, regardless of the age, if you ask me!
I think Beth won’t make it out of this season to be able to be in a relationship the cast is getting too big .
If you ask me, THAT’S who I think is gonna die next! The stuff with Daryl is just hype.
no. not bethyl. Deth. It fits better with the theme
No, just no!
Potential Spoilers from the comic. If Daryl must die I want him to succumb to Dale’s fate from the comic. I want him to be hunted and eaten by cannibals. I want him to lose both his legs and one arm just to shock general audiences and to prove how relentlessly unforgiving this world has become. Of course he has to already be bitten and laugh all of the hunters to their own demise. See you in hell, or somewhere close.
I don’t know how to respond to that, but it would be really awesome, but at the same time…
on one of the video,s i see beth walking away from a burning house, that makes me think, Maybe Daryl Dies Tonight, 🙁 🙁
I think everyone really wants to see “The Top 10 Paul “Jesus” Monroe Moments.”
IF he dies, they should do a memoriam at the end of that issue. Top 10 Jesus baddass moments!
i agrey bastet
I really don’t think Daryl is going to die tonight. Lizzy got the hype train running
Oh yeah I forgot to tell you I was just kidding about the casting rumors I thought The Rock would be hilarious in a grey wig playing Ezekiel.
oh you bum
You had me on that one well played
Lol I’ve been bored
Morgan Freeman as ezekial
the guy who plays Jaime Lanister on game of thrones as Jesus
and Mark Wahlburg as Negan…..
Those are good but maybe Peter Dinkage as Jesus lol
He can be Ron, the kid who gets eaten in No Way Out 😛 😛

When he blew up Negan’s bikers! When Rick told him that he was his brother. When he ran to Carol after Terminus. When he got shot by Andrea and told her that next time she best make sure he’s dead! lol
