Angry Living Dead the fans blame Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) for the brutal injury that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) suffered in the last moments of 904, "The Obliged".
After learning that Maggie (Lauren Cohan) was heading to Alexandria, Rick radioed to Rachel (Mimi Kirkland) and ordered Maggie not to be allowed to enter the community without supervision, so as not to take revenge on the incarcerated murderer of her husband, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
Daryl offered Rick a ride on his motorcycle, and then ran past the detour point. When Rick realized that Daryl cheated on him and the relay was sabotaged, the best separated friends broke out in a fight that left them trapped in a man-made pit.
A nearby herd of walkers, dragged by the sudden shots of the intermediate camp, forced Rick and Daryl to put aside their problems and work together to escape. Once released from the pit and confronted by the overwhelming sea of approaching walkers, Rick chose to stay behind and drive the pack away while Daryl alerted the camp.
By wanting Rick to draw the pack to the nearby unstable bridge that would then collapse and send the walkers out to sea, Daryl argued against Rick leaving alone.
Rick, refusing to sacrifice the bridge that would unite the survivors, left and led the herd until his frightened horse pulled him out of the way, directly in the path of a rebar.
The episode ended with Rick impaled and surrounded by walkers, a situation that some viewers now say was caused by Daryl. Star Norman Reedus, however, says that the two brothers met in a well, literally and figuratively, because Rick has been blinded for a long time to fulfill the dream he promised the late son Carl (Chandler Riggs), who imagined a better future and brighter for everyone.
"It was a great way to end things because what happens with Rick and Daryl's relationship this season is that Rick is simply blinded by the idea of uniting these communities and building this bridge," Reedus said. Deadline.
"He defeated Negan and Carl wanted a better life for everyone, and before he died, he wrote these letters and these letters really affected Rick. He is blinded by this desire to build this bridge when everything goes against him and 90 percent of those people do not even want a bridge, they do not even want to have anything to do with each other. "
While not likely to absolve Daryl in the eyes of his detractors, Rick manages to escape from the reinforcement bar. 905, "What Comes After", will send Lincoln from the series, but Rick Grimes can still survive his last episode.
The Walking Dead He broadcasts the last episode of Lincoln on Sunday, November 4 at 9 / 8c at AMC.
