The last ten seconds of ‘The Walking Dead’ was pretty much life changing — and may have ended one life. We were left wondering WTF happened, but now we can confirm the fate of one of your favorites.
If you have not yet the March 28 episode of The Walking Dead, do not click in.
“Exactly what you see happens, happens. It’s not a trick. It’s definitely Daryl getting shot. I won’t tell you where he’s getting shot. But you see [Dwight] pull the trigger, and that’s Daryl’s blood,” Norman Reedus told our sister publication, TVLine. Of course, he couldn’t confirm whether or not that meant he was dead or alive… Luckily, Austin could.
“He doesn’t have any intention on killing him,” Amelio told Tech Insider on Sunday night. “[Dwight]’s been through a rough patch and I think he wants to show that he means business, and he knows that by shooting him he gets his point across. I could have gone for the head. I didn’t. I went for the right shoulder. He’s not going to die. He’ll be okay.”
Additionally, Amelio said that the last line (“Don’t worry, you’ll be all right”) was added later by Scott Gimple so that viewers wouldn’t hate Dwight as much. “I kind of hope people miss that line. I want the shock factor to be there,” he said. “It’s definitely going to be there. I know, but some people are such fans that they interpret everything and try and find every clue and I’m like, ‘You know, if they miss the line, that’s all right.’ If I’m going to be hated, I want to be really, really, really hated. I don’t want to be half hated, I want to be hated.
Well Amelio, I think you completed that. Also, thank goodness Daryl’s alive. Are you thrilled, HollywoodLifers?
