Walking Dead star coy on cliffhanger: 'Doesn't look good for Daryl'

The Walking Dead set the bar for insane cliffhangers with the midseason finale a few weeks ago, and now star Norman Reedus (Daryl) is teasing what comes next when the season picks up again in February. [Spoilers ahead!]

When last we saw Daryl and his estranged brother Merle (Michael Rooker), they were on the ugly end of an angry Woodbury mob frothing with a bloodlust. That might not sound as bad as, say, being surrounded by a party of zombies—but on a show like The Walking Dead, it's more than enough to get you killed.

According to Reedus, it's going to be a tough February for Daryl. Here are his comments, via MTV:

"It doesn't look good for Daryl right now. I can't really say, although there were some spoilers. There are a lot of toes being stepped on in both camps. My brother [Merle] is back and pissed off at everybody...

[Merle's] pissed off everybody, so a lot of people want to hurt him, there are a lot of people he wants to hurt, and I'm kind of in the middle of both. So it wasn't exactly what I was looking forward to."

Assuming he even survives the first few minutes of the premiere, Daryl's allegiances will be tested for the first time in a long time. He's become a leader in Rick's camp, which is the same group Merle sees as his enemy. Where will Daryl's loyalty lie?
