The “Walking Dead” is back on AMC this Sunday, and now that the prison is gone the group is scattered. Daryl, played by Norman Reedus, in particular will struggle with the separation, Wet Paint reported on Feb. 7.

According to the report, Daryl has a mini identity crisis without his loyal group of friends such as Rick, Glen, and Michone there to have his back.

“Daryl, more than any other character, has allowed his existence in this group and his role within this pocket of civilization to define who he is as a person, and he's allowed it to make him grow as a person. And now everything that has had a positive influence on him — that has helped him turn into someone he respects and likes for the first time — has vanished,” executive producer Robert Kirkman said.

Kirkman says that Daryl, more than any other of the “Walking Dead” survivors, needs the group to help define who he is as a person.

“That's definitely going to shake him to his core and the question really becomes, ‘Is he going to be able to maintain who he's become? Or is he going to revert back to who he was?’ That's the struggle he's going to go through, and unfortunately it looks like Beth is caught in that crossfire,” Kirkman added.
