The Walking Dead Season 5 Extended Finale Synopsis Says Daryl Dixon Is In Trouble


There's good news and bad news for Norman Reedus fans in regards to The Walking Dead Season 5. Earlier today, AMC released the official synopsis for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale, which will be an extended 90 minute episode.

The good news is that Norman Reedus' character Daryl Dixon is still going to be alive by the time the Season 5 finale rolls around. The bad news is that he might not be by the end of the episode. Here's how AMC described the Season 5 finale.

Daryl finds himself in trouble while out on the run. Meanwhile, in Alexandria, Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders as danger lurks near the gates.

Of course, the episode synopsis also reveals that Rick Grimes is still alive, but as the central character on the show, it would be a real surprise if he wasn't. It should be noted that Rick appears to be safe inside the gates of Alexandria, while Daryl is apparently in trouble outside the gates.


With the Season 5 finale extended to 90 minutes, AMC must be planning something really special for the episode. The synopsis certainly makes it sound like fans could be in for a cliffhanger ending where the ultimate fate of fan-favorite Daryl Dixon might be up in the air until the beginning of Season 6.
