[Seeing Carl almost raped and the experience with the claimers] will not be glossed over. This is not a show that introduces things like that into a character’s past and then doesn’t deal with them. It will be very much at the forefront when it comes to Rick, Carl and even Daryl’s character as we move forward. - Robert Kirkman x
I love that quote. We all focus on Rick going feral on those guys but Daryl did as well. He stomped that guy’s head into the ground. Daryl and Rick always seem to follow each other’s cues. We saw how Daryl felt guilt over being with those guys. I think whatever path Rick heads down will have Daryl right behind him.
