Honey Buzz ~ ICYMI This TWD Bombshell is STILL making waves...

Back in mid-August, the slash-shippers had a field day with some extra special Walking Dead rumors... but it was a sad tidbit for anyone holding out hope for a Bethyl storyline. Because fan favorite Daryl (Norman Reedus) may have his eye on another Walking Dead character... one with a gruff exterior, chiseled cheekbones, bulky arms, and an apocalyptic hipster beard.


In an interview with ComicBook.com, series-creator Robert Kirkman was questioned about Daryl's romantic interests, or thus far, serious lack-there-of. When he was asked point blank whether or not Daryl was gay, Kirkman responded that it had "been discussed." Questioned further on the possibility of exploring this avenue for the series' resident dreamboat, Kirkman responded:

‘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.’

Kirkman also said that if a homosexual storyline for Daryl seemed the way to go, producers were 100% on board!

As someone that lost interest in The Walking Dead a while ago, I will readily admit that this kind of news has me responding a little differently than the homophobic trolls who are screaming "not MY Daryl" all over message boards. Mostly, I'm reacting like this...



What do you think, Walking Dead fans? Is this a revelation? Will we see anything happen in The Walking Dead Season 5? Are you stoked that Daryl might finally get a love interest, regardless of gender? Let's hear about it in the comments! ~Linnie
