Just last week, the gripping series The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon wrapped up its sixth episode with a jaw-dropping conclusion that left viewers in suspense, with some questions still unanswered. As the dust settles from the intense events of episode 6, the excitement for what’s to come in episode 7 is reaching fever pitch among fans. However, it’s time to prepare for a bittersweet revelation, as the news on the horizon may not be as heartening as fans might have wished for.
TWD: Daryl Dixon Episode 7 Does Not Exist
In the dramatic conclusion of the season, Daryl was confronted with a heart-wrenching dilemma: should he choose to stay in France, where Laurent and Isabelle awaited him, or return to his home in Alexandria? The finale skillfully sidestepped providing a definitive answer, but the hints strongly suggested that Daryl, albeit with a heavy heart, would opt to remain in France, committed to participating in the impending battle against Genet’s formidable forces. We’ll have to wait until season 2 to find out if he indeed chose to stay.
With that being said, fans were surprised with an absolute treat as the final few minutes of the show included a fan favorite: Carol. Back in America, beyond the borders of Freeport, Maine, someone decided to take Daryl’s motorcycle for a spin, unaware of the formidable force that is Carol. In the blink of an eye, she effortlessly outwitted him and had him securely confined in the trunk of her car. With a sense of determination, she embarked on a mission to uncover the truth behind the individuals with whom he had allegedly exchanged for Daryl’s stolen bike.
She is tracking her best friend, and every fan of The Walking Dead universe is cheering her on.
Carol is Back: What Does it Mean?
Entertainment Weekly caught up with showrunner David Zabel, who provided an in-depth analysis of all the key events in the finale, shedding light on the significance of that pivotal Carol scene and hinting at the exciting developments that lie ahead in the storyline.
When asked about the final scene where Daryl is between the boat and Laurent, Zabel said “That’s what you’ve got to come back for in season 2. And the good thing is, we know there’s going to be a season 2, so come back and see the answer and how it gets hashed out. But that was always the moral dilemma from the very beginning. To me, the moral dilemma for Daryl by the end of season 1 should be: What happens if in the effort to get back home, you create another home in the place where you are? That’s an interesting moral problem for him because he’s just been trying to get back the people he loves, the people he cares about, who are Judith and Carol and Connie and all those folks.
And while he’s in the process of trying to do that, he inadvertently — almost against his own intent — has created this sense of family and home here in France. And so that’s a sort of beautiful dilemma to have. Very difficult, but a kind of beautiful thing and speaks to the kind of guy that Daryl is.”
