Daryl (played by Norman Reedus) went to bring Henry (Matt Lintz) home along with Connie after he went after Whisperer Alpha’s (Samantha Morton) daughter Lydia in the most recent episode of The Walking Dead.
Although the situation turned almost deadly when Alpha ordered her daughter to kill Henry, they were interrupted by some of the undead.
Daryl and Connie had to take Lydia with them and while they seemed to escape, they are still in danger from the Whisperers.
The Whisperers have a threatening skill set and so whether they will ever really escape is up for debate.
The storyline comes from the The Walking Dead comic books, however there is one major difference.
In the source material it is Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) as opposed to Daryl and Henry.
Alpha also asks Rick to take Lydia with him back to their camp because she believes her daughter would be safe there.
She says it’s because Lydia is abused by the male Whisperers in their base.
However, this differs from what viewers have seen in the television adaption as it’s Alpha who has been harming Lydia.
Therefore, this may not be what happens on screen but there is also another interesting element to what happens in the comics.
Alpha shows Rick that the Whisperers have a massive herd of Walkers that they have managed to keep contained.
She lets him go, but not before he’s seen the horrific weapons the Whisperers have.
Perhaps it could be that Daryl will be shown the same thing.
However, there is also another potential storyline brewing for Daryl and Michonne (Danai Gurira).
Some believe a romance may be afoot for them.
While there has been no official word on any union between them, that hasn’t stopped tongues wagging.
The Hollywood Reporter posted an article exploring the theory and Norman had some interesting interaction with it.
He tweeted the article’s headline: “’Walking Dead’: Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Connie (Lauren Ridloff) Love Interest Theory.”
Could it be that the theory is true, or will become a reality?
The Walking Dead season 9 continues Sunday on AMC and Monday at 9pm on FOX in the UK.
