    I am really proud of Daryl, he is so strong. Negan will not break him.

    I keep thinking about when Deanna told Michonne "some day this pain will be useful to you." I think that can be said for Daryl as well. The pain he suffered from childhood abuse has almost allowed him to withstand what the saviors are doing because honestly he's been through worse. He will get through this and come out of it all more powerful than ever before.

    I think is past is what is getting him through all of this. I am not sure if the others could make it out the other side of it.

    Me too! That upset me so bad...one of many reasons he couldn't ask Negan to let him stay. Now, he thinks Maggie and the baby are dead, the last oif Hershel, gone!! Omg. What is he going to be thinking? That he deserves to suffer. He thinks he started it all by killing those guys on the road. I am very worried about where this is going.

    That quote applies to all of them. The things they have suffered in the past, is going to be Negan's undoing. Each member of that family has a history that will play out with this crazy ass Negan. Daryl and Rick most of all. Daryl having already lived that pain, is, I hope, going to keep him strong. So that he can help himself, so he can help his family. He needs them, and, God knows they need him. (But, now he (Negan) has that video of all them...that scares the sh*tbout of me!)

    Am I the only one who is just a little bit scared? I'm worried sick, actually. I don't like him being separated from the rest of them. It may be too much for him. Negan bringing him to Alexandria...why? To let him see, show him that Rick, his leader, his Captain is broken? I feel so antsy about that situation in particular. It worries me...I can't stop thinking about it.

    I tried not to post, but had to. I had to think aout my thinking, lol. After this lastest episode and the ASZ episode and the episode seeing poor Daryl being subjected to psychological torment/pain, which is far worse, especially for him, than physical pain, I am beginning to get an inkling of where Daryl as a character may be. He was bowed, submissive when they brought him to Alexandria. Showing him Rick was broken, so why resist. And, showing Rick that they have him cowed, docile. He wouldn't ask, beg. Just like Merle told the Gov.: 'I ain't gonna beg you!". The most important thing, and he took it back to the Sanctuary with him: Rick asked if he could stay, Rick was willing to ask, beg,( any asking is "begging" to people like Daryl) to get him back home. That is a big thing to a man like Daryl. That is an important thing to Team Family: each one fights for and is willing to die to protect the others. We have to remember that Rick claimed Daryl as his brother...now comes the time to see which brother he will hold to. He will never lose/forget his biological brother, but, now he has to truly be Rick's brother and hold to, live this new way. It is so deep, I get chills. Daryl has to join the future, be shaped by his past but not in a "cell" held captive by his past. ("Stone walls and iron bars do not a prison make." In so many ways he was/has always been in a "cell.") Negan can be his new Merle, more connective narrative to this last episode...a familiar and comfortable position for him, and, and he can think of this self he was becoming as the blip, the actual temporary situation, and that now he is back to how things always go for him. Or, or he can hold with this new brother and be his true self, the Daryl he wants to be, not some faux Daryl who has to hide, bury his feelings---zombify himself. Then, we see the taking on of new roles by Maggie and Sasha and, Jesus, too. This is coming for Daryl, as well, I think. But his will be an inward change, a new mindset and new view of himself and the world. He doesn't deserve punishment or abuse. He can live, too...have an authentic life. I have a lot more thoughts, but will curtail them...for now anyway, haha. I was just missing some Daryl love, lol, and I don't mind providing it myself if I have to. I love him. So hit me back if you guys have any thought on my craazzy thoughts!!

    I was going through some pics and images of Michonne and this pic was in the bunch and I thought Daryl looks really hot in this pic. I like his hair short like that and his arm is sexy and has the right amount of musculature.

    At first I didn't like Daryl but he grow on me, and for a short period I actually shipped Daryl with Michonne (until of course, I saw the light that is Richonne). He is extremely flawed and at times I just want to shake him, but he has proven to be reasonable and kind-hearted.

    If it wasn't the ZA, then he would be exactly like Merle. However, being surrounded by the undead makes people bypass racial/ethic/religionists/etc. differences and work on ways to survive and thrive together. He is still learning this lesson, but I feel like his open to it.
