“All I can say is that it’s been discussed,” Kirkman wrote in his latest “Letter Hacks” column in the comic book’s Issue #130. “We have very specific ideas about Daryl‘s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing … we’ll tackle it in the show.”
This was in response to a fan who asked, “I feel like if you had your way that Daryl would turn out to be gay … so the real question is, would AMC let that fly?”
Kirkman stated “for the record, (AMC) absolutely would” allow the character to be gay.
This all makes so much sense! The bow! Those arrows! That haircut! The motorcycle!
So basically, once Daryl Dixon finally gets to rest his fine ass for more than a minute (instead of saving that winey pack of hanger-on-ers), he’ll venture into town and come across a gay bar filled with scared twink survivors in capri pants held up in toilet stalls, hiding from zombies, begging for a bump (first) and (then) for their lives. This sounds just like the type of plot twist The Walking Dead needs!
