Last Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead took a much-needed respite from the horrors of the Season 7 premiere by checking in with Carol (Melissa McBride) and Morgan (Lennie James), and introducing us (and them) to the colorful King Ezekiel (Khary Peyton), his pet tiger Shiva and a brand-new community in The Kingdom.
But this Sunday, we’re going back to the heavy business of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his Saviors, where Daryl (Norman Reedus) is now being taken as a prisoner. A new clip from the episode, titled “The Cell,” has made its way online thanks to the good folks at Comicbook.com, which shows a defeated Daryl with Dwight (Austin Amelio), who’s getting handier with our favorite redneck’s crossbow by the minute (just like his comic book counterpart).
Talking about Daryl, Norman Reedus said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly that Daryl will never forgive himself for Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) death, and that will lead the character to go to a very dark place. Here's what he said:
“He goes into a very dark place. He completely takes the weight of that and just carries that with him. He never forgives himself and he takes full responsibility. Although the thing is, Daryl didn’t say “Oh if I do this, they’ll kill Glenn.” Nobody knows what’s going to happen with that guy with the bat. Nobody knows anything. But what he was doing was protecting Rosita. Negan had that bloody bat, waving it in her face, yelling at her, and it’s right in front of my face too. We were right next to each other. And he was picking on Rosita and Daryl stood up for her and he stood up for Abraham. The outcome of that, nobody knew that was going to happen.”
