The Walking Dead Season 7 is making it clear how the action will be back for its second half. Norman Reedus even teases there will be a murderous rampage by his character who is seeking for revenge.
Saying that Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus, had a difficult start to TWD Season 7 is an understatement. While many fans of the character are frustrated with how he is acting, his actions can arguably be justified with what he went through.
Daryl is Back
From being a prisoner locked in a jail cell with insane music and being fed with dog food, the mental and physical torture he was getting is not to be brushed off our shoulders. But the fire in him is still alive, and that he proved with escaping and reuniting with his friends.
Moreover, Daryl is eager to fight back as revealed by Norman in an exclusive interview with EW.com. Norman says his character “wants revenge” and is “ready to fight,” a news that would uplift many fans.
Talking about the last episode of the midseason finale of The Walking Dead Season 7, Norman says Daryl was like telling Rick to, once and for all, “beat this guy up.” He adds Daryl will be in “kill mode” as he fights to take back what is theirs and fight “this monster” referring to none other than Negan, the big bad wolf.
Guilt Because of Glenn and Abraham
Norman also talked about his character’s grief and rage after witnessing the brutal death of his friends Abraham and Glenn. Daryl’s time in the “hole,” according to Norman, was spent thinking about the both of them.
The 48-year-old actor admits the demise of the two was not taken easily by Daryl who “took it very” personally. In fact, he thought he deserved what was happening to him because of it.
However, his aggressive character is now back with a vengeance. And things will go really ugly as Daryl gets ready to “kill everybody.”
It is promised the second half of The Walking Dead Season 7 will be a preparation for an “all-out war” to finally stand up against Negan. As the hit AMC series returns on Feb. 12, many fans will undoubtedly anticipate for the hugely missing action from our protagonists this time around.
