The producers of AMC’s The Walking Dead have promised even scarier zombies and another new threat to rock the survivors when the hit cable drama returns for season 4 in October. But they did not warn us of the possibility that DARYL DIXON MAY NO LONGER HAVE A FACE! Okay, maybe that’s jumping to conclusions, but check out the exclusive new season 4 photo in full by clicking on the “Full Size Image” button above.
What exactly is going on here? Is Daryl robbing a zombie convenience store? Doing his best Jesse James impersonation? Hiding the fact he is running low on razors and hasn’t shaved since Merle died? One can only hypothesize, but the thing I do know is that the lady fans of Norman Reedus (of which there are many) won’t be too happy if the actor’s face is covered for an extended period of time. Then again, maybe this just makes him look even more badass, which we pretty much assumed was impossible until we saw this photo. What say you: Are you pro or con when it comes to a masked Daryl Dixon?
