The Walking Dead’s Daryl is on a mission to reunite with Rick Grimes in next week’s episode – no matter what the cost.
As the series continues its six season 10 special episodes, Daryl (played by Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) head off by themselves.
But their adventure soon goes off track with the discovery of an old cabin, causing Daryl to reflect on his time away from Alexandria, following Rick’s supposed ‘death’.
While viewers know that Rick survived the horde of walkers after a bridge explosion in season nine, to the survivors, it was assumed that he’s gone for good.
But Daryl went on search for a body, and never found it.
What he did find was his beloved dog – and a new enemy in the shape of Leah (Lynn Collins).
Showrunner Angela Kang has teased what’s to come for Daryl and Leah, and how he eventually made his way home – but didn’t give too much away.
She said in the extended season 10 preview special: ‘They have a very complex situation that arises after they meet.
‘So we wanted to tell this story from Daryl’s past, and I don’t want to say too much more, but let people kind of see how it unfolds between them.’
As the story unfolds, things are set to get even more fraught between best friends Carol and Daryl – with the hour catching up with them during the present-day in between flashbacks.
Could the pair, who have been relying on each other for years, finally be pulled apart?
Let’s hope not – considering they’re on their way to having a spin off together when the show ends.
Speaking to PA about the upcoming series, Norman didn’t given anything away – but said he’s hopeful it’s what fans want, especially given the pandemic.
‘I’m hoping that the time the show is ready to air that the pandemic is over, that the curtains have opened, the sun has come out, people are starting to hug again, and it’s a show of hope,’ he said.
‘I feel like it’s been such a rough year, and a rough couple of years, and I feel like I want the world to be the Age of Aquarius again and the sun to come out and the trumpets blaring and we go out in a different sort of way.’
