All the survivors on The Walking Dead are in a bad place after being forced to flee the prison as a result of the failed assault by the Governor. Not only have they lost their home and their moral center in Hershel, but they have lost each other as well in the process of a hasty evacuation. However, fan favorite Daryl Dixon also has another bombshell to process: the fresh knowledge that Rick exiled his friend Carol from the group after she killed two infected inmates in the hopes of containing the disease. Will the aftermath of that discovery play out when the show returns on Feb. 9? We went armed with that question and others and posed them to the man who plays Daryl, Norman Reedus. Read on as he tells us what to expect in the final eight episodes of season 4. (Also make sure to check out out midseason preview interviews with Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira.)

He’s got to start over. Everyone is in a really bad place right now. READ FULL STORY
