THE WALKING DEAD: Deceased Daryl Dixon Joins The Undead

THE WALKING DEAD: Deceased Daryl Dixon Joins The Undead

In surprising move, The Walking Dead creators have killed off yet another fan favorite character this week on the show's season finale...

AMC has taken risks with THE WALKING DEAD in the past by killing off major characters. Just last week, Merle was zombified, and now his little brother is sent off the show in a spectacular way.

In the Governor's attack, he floods the prison with zombies. The only way out becomes bottlenecked with the undead. Hero Daryl ingeniously sacrifices himself to save Carol and the group by hanging within the grasping reach of the "biters," successfully using himself as live bait until the others escape and the zombies inevitably rip his guts out. A pretty spectacular end to a great character that wasn't even originally n the comic.

While Daryl had become a beloved character, creator Robert Kirkman gave the reasoning behind killing him off.

"Daryl was created entirely for the television series, and replaced Tyrese as Rick's "best friend" type. Now that we've reintroduced Tyrese and brought him into the group, Daryl had to go."

This is incorrect, sir. You are not correct. You are not a correct person. Daryl is alive. If this is your idea of a joke, you're a sick and twisted individual, Big G.

April Fools day.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/31/2013, 11:21 PM
LMFAO!! I already seen this, thanks to one of my friends on this site. I'll admit, at first look, I thought they'd actually kill him off, but it turned out to be false. Nice try, @BigG, but you didn't fool this guy. ;D

mkilban2 - 3/31/2013, 11:21 PM
now this is how you do it Galactus!! I approve and laughed a lot.
mkilban2 - 3/31/2013, 11:22 PM

TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/31/2013, 11:22 PM
Ohhhhohoho.... This is gonna be a loooong day, fellas. Hope you're ready for the incoming pranks/jokes galore! ;)

TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/31/2013, 11:25 PM

April fools!!!! You got me! Man if this was real, I would have been really mad at CBM for a second week in a row putting big spoilers on the headlines. And yes they are spoilers because some of us have a life and can't watch episodes for a few days after it's original airing. Think about it when a movie comes out you don't say that giving away the ending isn't' a spoiler even after 2-3 weeks after it's opening.
GetsugaTensho22 - 3/31/2013, 11:32 PM
I personally don't watch TWD, so this didn't bother me, but I see now that it's an April Fool's prank.

Still, keep in mind that the "fake" reason given by "Kirkman" up there may still hold true. Daryl's still possibly going to die for that exact reason.
SageMode - 3/31/2013, 11:33 PM
I seen the episode. Nice try G. Lol
CoulsonLives - 3/31/2013, 11:34 PM

loki668 - 3/31/2013, 11:34 PM it April already? Oh well, nice try!

Lord Loki has spoken

Today, anyone can post a fake article without risking their account. If it is lame though, meaning too obvious, it will be deleted.
CoulsonLives - 3/31/2013, 11:38 PM

Walking Dead cut out on me with 10 minutes left to go, so I caught Andrea's death and figured, "Welp, I doubt anyone else is dying tonight" and didn't think could really ruin anything else for me.

I was correct.

Obvious April Fools Day joke is obvious. They ain't got the balls to kill him off.
Cerebro - 4/1/2013, 12:10 AM
Love me some comic book movie on April 1st.
Cerebro - 4/1/2013, 12:12 AM

nikgrid - 4/1/2013, 1:28 AM
HAHA Very nice Galactus!
NeoBaggins - 4/1/2013, 1:32 AM
Nice try. But I learned my lesson last week. Already saw the episode before coming here.
Ric - 4/1/2013, 2:01 AM
Happy April Fools Day!

That was quite honestly the worst season finale i've ever seen. It was an enormous [frick] YOU from the producers to the fans of the show. They built it up during the last few episodes making us think there was going to be a payoff and what did they give us? The stupidest character killed off and the prison turning into a retirement facility. Want to know more? Come back in six months losers. [frick] you AMC.
charlie2094 - 4/1/2013, 2:36 AM
Oh my, I nearly flipped a switch! :P

Bit disappointed in the finale, but still brilliant tv. Big shame there was no sort of Governor vs Rick thing in the end, guessing that'll now just carry over into Season 4. Shame, I thought that storyline would conclude with this season, don't think Governor will be quite so good with only Martinez (if that) behind him, not such a threat.
NeoBaggins - 4/1/2013, 3:04 AM
Finale was weak. The show had already started to get boring but this was a slap in the face. I don't care when the next season starts. It's whatever.

Where's Walter?
