The Daryl Line From The Walking Dead That Has Fans Buzzing

While most of the original characters from "The Walking Dead" have long departed the apocalyptic AMC series, a few remain. Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is one of two survivors left from the early days in Atlanta. The crossbow-toting character has undergone a major transformation since his introduction.

In Season 1, Daryl is rough around the edges and doesn't gel with anyone other than his equally-abrasive older brother, Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker). As time goes on, he grows closer to his newfound family and becomes an integral member of their group as they face hardship after hardship.

Now, fans are admittedly disappointed that Daryl has conformed to the strict rules of the Commonwealth, even though they know he's trying to protect Judith (Cailey Fleming) and R.J. Grimes (Antony Azor). As tensions build between his former allies and his fellow Commonwealth soldiers, many are wondering where he will land in their inevitable clash.

Anyone who believed Daryl would side with the Commonwealth may be second-guessing that after hearing this line in Season 11, Episode 15, "Truth."

Daryl takes a stand against Hornsby

In "Truth," Daryl is forced to draw a line in the sand after his boss, Deputy Governor Lance Hornsby (Josh Hamilton), takes things too far while searching for evidence against Hilltop. As members of both Hilltop and the Commonwealth turn their guns on one another, Daryl calls Hornsby out in a line that thrilled fans.

"You turned this place upside down and you found nothing," he growls. "So unless you want to die for nothing, tell them to drop the guns before something really f****** bad happens."

Fans took to social media to cheer Daryl on, as did the show's official Twitter account. "Daryl used the F-bomb, that's how you know things are serious," they tweeted.

"Just being honest, y'all should use it a lot more. Makes some scenes feel a lot more genuine and bad***. Don't know why AMC is so hard on people saying the word 'f***' on a rated TV-MA show? Makes no sense to me," replied @DWsGames2.

Many fans agreed with this point, with some drawing comparisons to Negan's expletive-laced tirades in the comics. Others were excited to hear Daryl protect Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) and his old group.

"Moment called for it," wrote @ShalanaDas. "Gonna land him in some hot water though..."
