Daryl And Dwight’s Many Similarities
Back when Daryl first met Dwight, it was clear the two had several things in common (somewhat like Rick and Negan), but there are certain moral lines Dwight would cross (perhaps for love) that Daryl would not cross.
When they first met, one episode even ended with Daryl getting shot and then the episode cut to black. Norman Reedus spoke about the incident to Entertainment Weekly, but it wasn’t quite as bad as Glenn’s fake dumpster death.
“That’s Daryl’s blood that you see,” said Reedus.
Norman Reedus Talks About Dwight And Daryl
“It’s exactly what you see. I mean, that’s Daryl’s blood that you see. That’s exactly what happens, exactly what you see. So that’s the world that we live in. The fight between Daryl and Dwight is very real — that sort of fight on who you are and who you’re becoming and what you’ve given up is very real right now, and I think Daryl’s making that as real as possible with him. He’s forcing him into that eyeball-to-eyeball right now…”
What’s perhaps even more interesting about the scenes with Dwight and Daryl is that Dwight was able to sneak up on Daryl Dixon, which no one else has ever been able to do.
“That part really surprised me as well,” said Norman Reedus. “Sometimes you think with your heart rather than your mind, and you’re acting aggressively and you slip up when that happens. I think that was yet another moment Daryl slipped up. He paid the price…”
Will Daryl Dixon Get His Revenge?
With Dwight’s various interactions and the fact that the Saviors kept Daryl prisoner while torturing him and feeding him dog food, he’s certainly ready for revenge. When the Kingdom arrived to help them, it was clear Daryl Dixon was out for blood.
When Season 8 returns, Daryl will get his revenge, whether that means killing dozens of Saviors or taking down Dwight.
