After The Walking Dead midseason finale on Sunday night, Robert Kirkman appeared on The Talking Dead, and for reasons that make literally no sense to me, he crushed the collective hearts of America by announcing that Daryl is straight.
Seriously, though, unless Daryl’s sexuality comes into play (and it hasn’t through four and a half seasons, so far), why ruin the illusion? Why can’t you just let us have that? The thought that Daryl Dixon — the most bad ass guy on television right now — may be the biggest bad ass gay dude since Omar Little.
Still, I’m not entirely convinced. I mean, it never occurred to me until recently, but I think there’s a secret romance brewing. In fact, Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon may be the cutest gay couple since Lee Pace and Richard Armitage. And if Robert Kirkman won’t give us that, by God, WE’LL TAKE IT FROM HIM.
RICK AND DARYL 4 EVA.
