Is ‘The Walking Dead”s Daryl Dixon Going To Come Out This Season?

Is 'The Walking Dead''s Daryl Dixon Going To Come Out This Season?

There’s long been rumors that Daryl Dixon on "The Walking Dead" might be gay, based on the facts that he seems to have a significant disinterest in women and that he’s had no romantic plotlines whatsoever over the show’s first four seasons. Now "Dead" creator Robert Kirkland has officially responded to those rumors:

"All I can say is that it’s been discussed," he said. "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."

Does this mean Daryl will get himself a post-apocalyptic coming out episode? Seems like a good possibility, unless he dies first of course.
