"This dude is redefining the term bad-ass. Those of you who have read The Walking Dead comics know Darryl does not exist in the comic book, which means the television show can do whatever they please to him without changing the continuity. Knowing that made tonight’s episode particularly tense, and the shit Darryl had to go through just proves how tough he is. Tonight, Darryl got kicked off a horse, thrown down a cliff, stabbed with his own arrow, passed out, fell down a cliff again, got his shoe nibbled on by a walker, killed that walker, killed another walker, ate squirrel guts like it was no big deal, made and wore a necklace of dead people’s ears, climbed the cliff he fell off of twice, and got more or less shot in the head. That’s more than Rick’s done in the entire show! We’re led to believe that Darryl’s going to return to camp with a chip on his shoulder after being visited by his evil brother Merle in a hallucination, but his salvation comes from an unlikely place: Carol. It seems like Darryl’s searching for Sophia for the sake of Carol, not Sophia herself. They even kissed tonight…might this be the blossoming of the show’s first non-rapey, non-Asian romance?"
