Norman Reedus, the actor who plays fan favorite Daryl on "The Walking Dead," did an interview with on Feb. 24 and talked about his character's development in season four. With all the characters on the show facing uncertainty, Daryl's fate is one that is on most fan's minds.

That fate is still unknown since all the characters are in imminent danger and there is a good chance they won't all make it back together alive. Reedus called the second half of season four as very "controversial" and "intense" but he assures fans that it is all also well done.

One of the most controversial aspects of the first half of the fourth season was when Rick Grimes banished Carol from the community after she killed two people trying to protect everyone in the group. With Daryl and Carol very close before this happened, and Rick doing it on his own while Daryl was away, fans anxiously awaited to see how he would react.

Many voiced displeasure when Daryl didn't seem to let the expulsion bother him as much as many believed he should have.

According to Reedus, he worked hard with actor Andrew Lincoln on the moment in the show where Rick had to tell Daryl his decision. According to Reedus, they originally wanted Daryl to be upset but reluctantly accept it. He said that he wanted to make it more open-ended and show that Daryl has Rick's back no matter what decisions he makes.

Reedus did say that Daryl had not said everything he felt about the expulsion of Carol before the prison attack occurred, so there is more to be said and Daryl is not happy he didn't get to say what he really felt.

As for how Daryl has changed this season, he said they the characters feel that the others are dead, so that is what is effecting their emotions and feelings about everything right now. He said that they are all just running for their lives right now with little hope for survival.

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