In the first half of Season 06 of the mega popular Walking Dead, fan favorite character Daryl Dixon didn’t have much to do. But at the midseason finale, numerous things happened to him that seemed to set up the upcomign second half of the season, and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Norman Reedus (who plays Daryl) confirms that things are going to pick up for him:
“There’s so much chaos happening in the second half,” Reedus told Entertainment Weekly. “As far as Daryl is concerned, he is pissed off. He’s had his stuff taken from him. He put himself out there and trusted some people, and it did backfire on him, and I think he comes back super pissed off. There’s a lot of that element for me. I mean, I know you know the bad guys that are coming… There’s definite surprises coming with all of that, and you know, it’s battle time.”
“I feel like there’s a lot of vengeance happening in the second half, and a lot of payback on Daryl’s mind. He’s headstrong now, and he’s kind of turning into the same sort of aggressive person he was in the first part of the show, going back to his roots. I think he would definitely be making Merle proud right now,” he added.
The Walking Dead returns this Sunday on AMC.
