If there’s one thing we’ve learned from seven seasons of “The Walking Dead,“ it’s that characters we love are eventually going to die. The only characters that seem bulletproof right now are Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon… but I suppose anything can happen.
What I’m trying to say is, Daryl totally *could* die. And Norman Reedus has an idea for an oddly beautiful way for the beloved character to depart the show.
Reedus laid out his perfect death scene to CNET this week…
“I think you’d see a sunset. I would walk up over a hill and then a little wolf puppy would come out of the woods and follow me up,” he told the site. “And people would just go, ‘Whatever happened to that guy?’”
“The Walking Dead” has become known for dispatching characters in brutal ways, so killing off Daryl in this way would certainly be different!
Of course, fans would still riot.
Season 8 premieres October 22 with the series’ 100th episode.
