The second half of The Walking Dead's eighth season returns on Feb. 25 on AMC and the excitement is not only mounting among fans, but among the cast as well. In particular, Norman Reedus (who plays Daryl Dixon on the show) is pumped to see the dynamic between Daryl and Dwight, who fled Negan and the Saviors with his sister. However, that didn't stop him from being a sneaky double-crosser, shooting Daryl, stealing his crossbow and motorcycle, and even helping torture Daryl. And yet he still offered to help bring down Negan. Needless to say, Dwight flip-flops more than a pandering politician on election day. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Reedus said he's very pleased with the Daryl-Dwight storyline in the second half of the season. One is a fearless warrior while the other is a spineless rat. Reedus warned that they probably won't end up best friends, but their rivalrous relationship is fascinating to see in its own right. 

“I don’t think he ever fully accepts Dwight, but he gets it," said the actor. "He gets where he’s coming from, but he doesn’t like him. They don’t like each other. I think one person’s trying to hang out and the other person’s like, ‘Stay the f*** away from me.’ You know what I mean? It’s like that whole thing of the snake biting the guy. He’s like, ‘Well, you know I’m a snake.’ It’s kind of like that a little bit.”
