Near the end of the Commonwealth storyline, Daryl (Norman Reedus) does what TV show fans either love or hate – he says the name of the show. In a short, dramatic (well, as dramatic as Daryl ever is) speech to Pamela and the Commonwealth soldiers, he hoarsely says, “We’re not the walking dead.” After that name has fallen, he walks to the gate without hesitation.
It’s a cool moment and a lot of fans ate it up. The line has been rave about the line on Twitter, many of which have been positive. However, there were plenty tweets poking fun at the headline dropand some people just hated it. Daryl just said The Walking Dead in a dramatic opening and I remembered why I stopped watching this dog s*x show. @mma_squared tweeted.
This is a clear nod to Season 5, when Rick Grimes memorably told Daryl and the rest of their group that they were in fact the walking dead. Easter egg or not, Norman Reedus didn’t want to talk. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actor revealed that he had to be coaxed into saying it and tried to act it out as normal dialogue instead of “shouting it from the rooftops”. He said, “I had to find a way to just make it part of the offer without turning it into a poster.”
