No character is safe in "The Walking Dead" series, and fans saw that during the midseason finale of season 5 when a fan-favourite character Beth Greene was killed off.
And as the season moves forward, more characters might have to say goodbye to the show, and creator Robert Kirkman recently revealed during an interview that no character was safe on the series.
"No, no one is safe, definitely not. Looking at you Norman Reedus," said Kirkman during an interview with CNN's Gustavo Valdes. However, he added that killing a character on television is harder as an actor is involved in the process. "You get to know the actor, and you see the house that they bought in Senoia, Georgia for filming. And it's like, 'Oh, they're not going to live in that house anymore.' That's awkward," said Kirkman.
Kirkman's statement is sure to make a lot of Daryl fans uncomfortable, but is it really time for Norman Reedus' character to leave the show?
Only time will answer this question, but this is not the first time that Kirkman has spoken about Dayl's death. Kirkman said the same in June, when asked about season 5's story arc.
Meanwhile, Reedus too hinted about things turning darker for the characters in the second half of the season during his 21 December Reddit AMA. When a fan asked, "Will there be any more devastating moments on the walking dead season 5?" Reedus answered, "hey man . well duh. theres some crazy stuff coming . like crazy crazy. like like like 74 crazies," Norman added.
Beth's death is going to have a major impact on all the characters, especially Daryl, who will go into depression.
"Beth's death is like Sophia's; she sings songs and was always hopeful," Reedus told The Hollywood Reporter. "Of course she tried to kill herself at one point, but besides that, for the most part, she was this sweet songbird, and that represents a part of humanity that you don't see anymore. So when you put that candle out, it goes dark for everyone."
