Ahead of Season 5, The Walking Dead BOMBSHELL: Daryl Dixon Will Date...
It's a happy day for slash-shippers but a sad one for anyone holding out hope for a Bethyl story line. Because fan favorite Daryl (Norman Reedus) may have his eye on another Walking Dead character... one with a gruff exterior, chiseled cheek bones, bulky arms, and an apocalyptic hipster beard.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, series-creator Robert Kirkman was questioned about Daryl's romantic interests, or thus far, serious lack-there-of. When he was asked point blank whether or not Daryl was gay, Kirkman responded that it had "been discussed." Questioned further on the possibility of exploring this avenue for the series' resident dreamboat, Kirkman responded:
‘We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality, or the seeming lack thereof, and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing, we’ll tackle it in the show.’
Kirkman also said that if a homosexual storyline for Daryl seemed the way to go, producers were 100% on board!
What do you think Walking Dead fans? Is this a revelation? Will we see anything happen in The Walking Dead Season 5? Are you stoked that Daryl might finally get a love interest, regardless of gender?
My thoughts on this one...I hope Daryl is very busy with his crossbow this season
I don't see it, but Eh. Whatever. As long as the show stays good and the reveal (whatever it happens to be) is honest and believable, I couldn't care less.
If they're going to do it, I hope they just do it. Meaning I hope this isn't some publicity stunt.
I don't care if Daryl's gay. Historically speaking, the girls will probably lust after him MORE if they know they can't have him.
And I hope it isn't sensationalized. It shouldn't be treated any differently if he finds a fella than it would if he finds a girl.
YES! EXACTLY! Publicity crap will just piss me off. Could happen, though--the biggest misstep I think they've made in four seasons was making the trainee cop and the military woman a couple. The stereotyping was such a disappointment, as they'd avoided pretty much all of that malarky up to that point. I'm wondering if they have a blind spot toward gay stereotypes.
I have been pondering...I wonder how Abraham is going to get along with Rick? They are both strong leaders and do not seem to like to take orders from others.
I can't imagine that they'll get along at all UNLESS Abraham is a good soldier and able to take orders from a superior officer (if he considers Rick that way, as the rest of them do)

Oh my gosh! These photos are totally bada**! And make me even more excited! Thanks for sharing, Lepplady!
Those were just awesome..I particularly like the one of Daryl and Rick...YUMMY
Robert Kirkman has on EW that the spin off of Walking dead is a go. It will be set some where other than Georgia.
New Orleans! Holla!
Anyone plan to watch Z Nation? Think it will rival Walking Dead?
I originally thought it was the spin-off, but it is not. I don't think it looks as good, but I will watch the first few to decide. Plus it has DJ Qualls, and I like him.
Probably not. I'm not sure I even want to watch the actual WD spin off.
I would like to see the Walking dead set in a cold environment. I would suggest Alaska.
Are you serious?! You really want Daryl to put clothes... on?
