Norman’s character, the crossbow-wielding Darryl Dixon, lives to fight another day, but who else will? “We’re in a situation we’ve never been in before,” Reedus said. “We left off on the road, the very last thing you saw was me carrying Beth off… All of us are hanging by a thread at this point, what we’re willing to do, and the gift of fight that’s kept us alive thus far is slowly fading and people are starting to turn on each other.”
Reedus went on to say, “You really have to pick your battles, and sometimes those battles are internal with the group and some of those battles are internal within you. There’s a lot of eggshells we’re walking on.”
Fans are desperate to see Daryl stay alive, saying they will riot if he ever gets killed. Norman says he will be right there with them, “I’ll be passing out books of matches… I’ll be the first in line.”
Reedus is having so much fun with his role. “It’s a blast, the cast are super-tight, crew are super-tight, I run around covered with blood, stabbing people in the face, it’s a guy’s dream.”
“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC on Sunday at 9 PM.
