Norman Reedus Compares Rick and Daryl to Kirk and Spock

As fans frantically wait for the season finale of a gut-wrenching seventh season of ‘The Walking Dead,’ Norman Reedus brought a lighter side to his character Daryl Dixon and Daryl’s relationship with Rick Grimes.

Reedus attended the 2017 Garden of Laughs Comedy Benefit on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City and Page Reporter, Lindsey Kupfer was curious about Daryl’s potential love life on The Walking Dead. The answer surprised us at Monkeys Fighting Robots and adds a whole new dynamic to Daryl and Rick’s friendship.

“It’s such a thing, the love story, you know what I mean? Once you throw someone up against a tree, it’s over. I kind of don’t know that Daryl is mature enough to do that. Let Rick get all the girls. I’m like Spock on ‘Star Trek’ and he’s like Captain Kirk. He gets all the ladies and I sit in the background and say weird things,” said Reedus.

Do you want to see Daryl find love in Season 8, or are you a fan of his loner status? Comment below. It’s probably best for Daryl’s health that he does not find happiness, because in the cruel world of ‘The Walking Dead,’ happiness usually leads to someone’s death.


The Season 7 finale of “The Walking Dead” airs Sunday night on AMC.
