Does Daryl Dixon Get Bitten in Season 6?

Warning: Comic Book Spoilers Ahead!

Daryl Dixon is arguably the most popular character on The Walking Dead. He is such a fan favorite that fan girls everywhere have coined the phrase, “If Daryl dies, we riot!”

Hold your breath, fans, because People has just released exclusive Season 6 photos. In one, Daryl looks very contemplative as he holds his left hand, which is not just bloody, but also visibly wounded. Could Daryl have been bitten? Could his time on the show be done? I say, “yes,” and “no.”


Fans of the comic know that in Issue 28, Rick Grimes had his hand cut off by the Governor. The Governor has come and gone and Rick still has his hand. But, we all know that The Walking Dead’s showrunners, producers, and creator have a long history of changing elements of the comic to surprise the fans. I believe it is possible Daryl gets bitten in Season 6 and cuts his own hand off. After all, his brother did it! There would be a cool symmetry there. Plus, Daryl is just the guy to cut his own hand off and still be awesome!

What do you think?

The Walking Dead returns on October 11.

  • I think it’s more likely he’s hurt in a fight… he’s staring at a broken down motorcycle engine that it looks like he was repairing and he’s inside the gates of the andrea safe zone.. it would seem odd that he was bitten.

    Back in filming Norman tweeted a picture of a severed hand but the only thing was it had a wedding ring on. So that means the only ones that could lose their hand could be Rick or Glen. In the comic the govenor cut off Ricks hand but he’s long gone now but doesn’t mean someone else couldn’t do it to him either.

      Maybe Daryl and Carol get married and then he loses his hand. I don’t think they’ll have more with Glen seeing as the first half of the season was pretty much about Glen.

    He’s not rushing to cut off his hand, I’m not sure if he was bitten.
