Season eight has been an action-packed zombie apocalypse journey within the episodes that have aired so far because the fighters of Alexandria, Hilltop, and the Kingdom have attacked the Saviors on a number of fronts. Daryl and Rick went on a mission to raid a Savior compound to steal a cache of weapons, however it went awry fairly shortly, and it grew to become obvious that Daryl and Rick are now not on the identical web page in terms of battling the dangerous guys. Rick nonetheless sees the worth in speaking to the Saviors; Daryl is fast to kill. Norman Reedus has this to say concerning the potential for battle between Rick and Daryl:
There is likely to be one coming. It seems like there might be one thing taking place. However you understand, we’re nonetheless brothers and we’re nonetheless on the identical workforce, however the stakes are increased proper now.
Daryl and Rick make for one of the formidable duos of the zombie apocalypse. They’re each deadly with quite a lot of weapons and work nicely collectively with out even needing to speak issues out. If anyone might have gotten the supposed cache of weapons out of the Savior outpost, it might have been Daryl and Rick. The weapons weren’t truly there, however they acquired out alive due to their teamwork. Nonetheless, Rick was visibly shocked when Daryl first shot Morales (whose return was finally short-lived) after which later took out the Savior named Todd who surrendered. Norman Reedus’ feedback on the Talking Dead aftershow point out that Daryl and Rick might discover themselves on opposing sides of main arguments, even when they nonetheless have their eyes on the identical prize of defeating Negan.
Whereas Daryl’s brutality is considerably stunning to see, it is comprehensible that he appears to have snapped. He underwent some hellish therapy whereas he was stored prisoner on the Sanctuary, each bodily and mentally as he had nothing to do however wallow in distress and stew in his own guilt over what occurred to Glenn. The person is clearly traumatized and will most likely use a while out of the battle. On condition that he is one of the expert fighters within the zombie apocalypse and all-out conflict has damaged out, taking a break is not actually an possibility. Norman Reedus went on to say this about Daryl in Season eight:
He is simply acquired revenge on his thoughts this yr. He is able to kill everyone, it doesn’t matter what the group says, it doesn’t matter what anyone says. He is similar to, ‘Nah, screw it. Everyone dies.’ He is very centered on revenge.
It seems like Rick won’t be a lot of a stabilizing affect on Daryl shifting ahead, and Carol has her personal troubles to take care of with out worrying about Daryl. Dwight most likely should watch out for himself if he is ever left alone with Daryl. Even when Daryl is taking part in good sufficient with Dwight whereas Dwight is their man on the within, his restraint might very nicely snap now that he has revenge on his mind in such a serious means.
