Now that Glenn’s gone, Rick isn’t the only one suffering over his death. On ‘Talking Dead,’ Norman Reedus dived deep into how his character, Daryl, feels about his friend’s death.
Make no mistake, it was the actions of Daryl Dixon that led to Glenn Rhee’s brutal death by Lucille on the season seven premiere of The Walking Dead. Although Negan could have picked any one of the group to kill after Daryl’s outburst, he swung at Glenn with zero warning leaving everyone — including the audience — completely stunned. On the after show Talking Dead, actor Norman Reedus opened up about how Glenn’s death will affect Daryl going forward.
“I think he totally feels guilt. I think the weight of that is so heavy on him at that point,” Norman explained to host Chris Hardwick as an audience of 200 fans watched live. “I mean, initially shock, but I think that he’ll never let that guilt, he’ll never release that from himself. I think he feels really responsible.”
It’s heartbreaking to know that Daryl will have to live with that, but it will definitely be interesting to see how it affects his actions going forward. Unfortunately it may be a while before we see Daryl again because as those of you who watched already know, Negan took him hostage at the end of the episode. He told Rick that he “liked” him and wanted to keep him as his own, but as we all know — Daryl Dixon is not one to be “kept” by anyone.
