Before season 7 changes everything, look back at five iconic Daryl moments
It’s Negan’s world now, and everyone else is just living in it. Before the new world order of Season 7 arrives this Sunday, October 23 at 9/8c, take some time to reflect on some of Daryl’s most memorable moments from the past six seasons.
1. Daryl Brings Carol a Cherokee Rose
While searching for Sophia, Daryl finds a Cherokee Rose and brings it to Carol. He tells her “I’m not fool enough to think there’s any flowers blooming for my brother, but I believe this one bloomed for your little girl.”
2. Daryl Kills Walker-Merle
In search of his brother, Daryl finds him… as a walker feasting on Ben’s corpse. The stoic Daryl finally breaks down and when Merle tries to attack, Daryl tearfully stabs him in the head.
3. Daryl and Beth Burn Down a Shotgun Shack
After Daryl opens up about his past to Beth over moonshine, they douse a shack in their flammable drink and watch it burn. It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship with a tragic end.
4. Daryl and Carol Go Over the Bridge
On their hunt for Beth, Daryl and Carol are in a van, on a bridge and surrounded by walkers. With no other options, they decide to take the plunge.
5. Daryl Sets a Lake on Fire
