The Walking Dead Season 5: Is Daryl Dixon Gay?

Daryl Dixon, known for slaying walkers left and right with his crossbow and manly physique -- could be gay.

Yes, ladies, you may now start looking for another man to marry when the zombie apocalypse begin to spread on Earth.

You might be INTENSIVELY wondering, "Why is this happening?! Why of all the men who could be gay on the show, why the heck they'd pick Daryl?". Well, calm down sweetheart. Let's get down to the bottom of this shall we?

In the comics, a character named Jesus who's also just as badass as Daryl is gay.

One fan addressed this matter to exec producer Robert Kirkman via the letter column to The Walking Dead #130, pointing out the similarities of the two characters. Only as far as we can tell, Daryl Dixon's sexual orientation remains to be a mystery. 

So what now showrunner, is he a real dude or not? Here's what the EP has to say:

All I can say is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we’ll tackle it in the show.
