Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl on The Walking Dead, has revealed that he feared his character might kill Rick.
With the knowledge that Rick Grimes, The Walking Dead’s main character, will be leaving the show, it’s not just fans that have been speculating about how it might happen.
Norman Reedus, one of the show’s stars, has revealed to TheWrap that with the way the previous season finished, he was afraid that his character Daryl might kill Rick: “At the end of last season, that very last scene that we shot, it looks like Jesus, Maggie and Daryl are going to turn on Rick — I wasn’t in that scene [at first].
“Maybe an hour before that, they’re, ‘we want to put you in this scene.’ And I was, ‘what are you talking about? I can’t go against Rick. What are you talking about?’ And they were, ‘trust us, it’ll play out later.’ And I was, ‘wait, wait, what?’ So I spent my whole hiatus thinking, ‘oh my god, I’m going to kill Rick, or he’s going to kill me.’”
Andrew Lincoln and his character Rick haven’t yet departed the show so we don’t quite know how things are going to play out. Do you think a Daryl v Rick confrontation would be a good send off for Lincoln’s character?
The Walking Dead season 9 airs on Sundays in the US and on Mondays in the UK.
