With the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead comes more maddening interviews where we learn little bits of information about what’s to come…but never nearly enough! In just one example, Norman Reedus spoke with Deadline about Daryl’s arc for this season.

And while he kept a lot close to the vest, we’re still very excited about what he did say.

Although it sounds like this season is focusing more on Rick, The Walking Dead is by now pretty practiced at giving us a bit of every character’s journey. After being imprisoned by Negan last season, Reedus assured us Daryl is looking to get some payback.

Is it wrong that we’re reeeeally into rogue Daryl? Because we’re really into rogue Daryl.

But we’re also a little worried about the damage Daryl could cause, because Reedus was quick to point out how Daryl has grown from the beginning of the series. Now he’s not just a hothead — he’s a wise hothead who’s learned how to plan.

So revenge-seeking Daryl + chess-master Daryl? Yikes!

We don’t want to rush this season of The Walking Dead because we’ll be so sad when it’s over. But we’re so excited to see where this all goes.
