Ok, we’re all high-strung after Darryl gets shot by Dwight and now we know how it feels to see our worst fear come to pass. Dwight does say, “you’ll be alright.” But will he be? Will Darryl be alright? The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 15 – East is the penultimate episode for the season. And while we are bracing ourselves for the finale and who we might not see again, this episode makes the anticipation even worse when we see Darryl’s blood splattered all over the screen.
After the shot fires and the blood splatters, fan reactions all over are practically the same — eyes wide, breath held, and mouth open in fear. While our hearts thumped at a 100 miles an hour, we try to make sense of what just happened and stay sane. When the initial shock wore off, we tell ourselves he will be ok. The studio would not want a riot and picketing on the streets. They will not dare. At least that’s what we tell ourselves to keep us calm.
At the end of the episode, we even forget about our worries over Carol being hurt or dead. Everything fades into the background after that fateful shot. But I still marvel at how much we all feel the same about Darryl. Here’s a video of fan reactions to Darryl’s predicament. Trust me, I don’t look any different than any of them . . .
