Here’s a lede we didn’t expect to write on this Friday morning: Norman Reedus, long-time servant on The Walking Dead, indulges in a little fan fiction of the erotic type with this newly-released video from Page Six.
As relayed to us by ComicBook.com, the following snippet is as bizarre and awkward as you’d expect, as Reedus stumbles upon the supposed sexual tension brewing between Daryl on his close ally, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). It’s all in good fun, and if nothing else, this Page Six video offers some welcome respite from talk of Carl Grimes and his imminent demise – not to mention the forthcoming batch of episodes that will see Rick and his zombie-slaying confidants take one final stand against Negan.
But first, some fan fiction:
Back in the realm of reality, Reedus was none too pleased about the decision to bump off Carl Grimes in episode 8×09, which is now going by the official title, “Honor.” Said to feature “new difficulties” and “hard decisions,” the super-sized February premiere has been described as so:
Rick faces new difficulties after a battle. Meanwhile, the fight continues in other communities as core members face hard decisions.
To their credit, both Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman, founding father of The Walking Dead, have repeatedly defended the upcoming sea change, as it sets in motion a chain of events that will steer Rick Grimes back toward Negan, the show’s ultimate big bad.
Expect their conflict to reach dizzying new heights when The Walking Dead season 8 returns with “Honor” on February 25th. The only question left now is, will you be tuning in?
