Norman Reedus on What's Coming in Season Seven of 'The Walking Dead'
The third episode of the new season for AMC's hit zombie series featured the new villain Negan psychologically torturing fan favourite character Daryl Dixon for forty minutes. Norman Reedus has given his view on where things go from here, after such a dark opening to the season.
"You know, it’s an emotional season. It’s a different season for us. There’s a lot of heart in this season, and when and if it ever turns back around, it’ll be super large. It’ll be very powerful," Reedus said. "Andy and I joke all the time, remember when we were, like, badass on this show and we were like…and it’s different, you know? It’s harder for us.
"We’re not winning right now, but if you have a hero, he has to go all the way to the bottom before he can rise back up again, and hopefully, there’s light at the end of that tunnel, and that’s pretty much what this season’s about for everyone."
It wouldn't be surprise to see this entire season be one long beat-down on its main characters and its audience, leading to a kind of revolution in season 8. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
