Daryl Dixon became an instant fan-favorite when AMC’s The Walking Dead series premiered. It’s gotten to the point that if Daryl was going to die in the show, fans would riot. We don’t have to worry about that yet. So far the show has hinted at some kind of relationship with Carol and Beth, but writer and creator Robert Kirkman has revealed that there were talks of Dixon being a gay character in the latest The Walking Dead issue.

“All I can say is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing…we’ll tackle it in the show.”

I’m pretty sure that if it does happen, some fans would be disappointed. One thing we know for sure; if he dies, people will riot.

The comic has been known to be edgier than the TV show, so would AMC be okay wit this?

“For the record, they absolutely would,” Kirkman says.
