Daryl on “The Walking Dead” assured fans that the upcoming episodes are going to be intense. This, he did without spoiling the rest of Season 6.
Norman Reedus, the actor who plays Daryl, recently sat down with Men’s Fitness for an interview. The actor revealed how “emotionally draining” the next few episodes will be.
“I can’t tell you, but the second half of the season is so hardcore,” he said. He also came up with a brilliant metaphor for what is to come. “It’s sort of like the first half was the pulling back of an arrow with a bow, and the arrow has gained momentum. The second half is the really emotionally draining release. We’ve had so many scenes where our crew was crying because they were feeling so emotional and heavy,” Reedus explained.
Meanwhile, he revealed to Entertainment Weekly just how angry Daryl is going to be this season. “I feel like there’s a lot of vengeance happening in the second half, and a lot of payback on Daryl’s mind,” he teased.
The mid-season premiere of “The Walking Dead” earlier this week left fans wanting more. Scenes and details from the comic found their way to the screen in the latest episode. It made the premiere as disturbing and heartbreaking as speculated earlier.
The latest episode also confirmed a spoiler that was accidentally leaked ahead of the premiere. A TV network in Russia released an ad that showed Carl Grimes with a bandage over one eye. In this week’s episode, Carl was seen being shot in the eye by Ron.
“The Walking Dead” is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. He said of the scene with Carl’s eye being shot: “that moment…was just awesome, and startling, and heartbreaking, and all those things in the comic.” Kirkman thought the show did justice to his comic books.
