'The Walking Dead' spoilers: Daryl regressing during second half of season

Over the first four seasons of "The Walking Dead," one of the most popular characters in the series has been Daryl, someone who never existed in the world of the comics. According to Wet Paint on Feb. 12, creator Robert Kirkman said that the Daryl that appears in the next few episodes is not the same mad fans have grown to love.

Kirkman also said that Beth will be "caught in the crossfire" of Daryl's doubts.

What happened that will change things for both Beth and Daryl is the massacre at the prison. Beth lost her dad Herschel, who had his head chopped off my The Governor, and her sister Maggie is missing with everyone separated after the prison escape. This also separates Daryl from the prison group, where he found his place in the world.

That is what Kirkman said is going to weigh on Daryl as he sees that he couldn't succeed in saving everyone and will start to doubt if he can continue as the hero he has become or if he will revert to the selfish, angry man that he was when he was on the run with his brother Merle.

His biggest problem is that his support system as he became a hero is now gone, as he is separated from Rick and Carol is also gone. This makes things dangerous for Beth, who still needs Daryl to help protect her and keep her alive. She will have to be the character to show strength as Daryl goes through his conflict of faith.

"The Walking Dead" airs on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
