The Walking Dead's season 1 finale may have foreshadowed the death of fan-favorite character Daryl Dixon. The episode presents Daryl with the choice of returning home or staying in France to fight. Choosing the latter could be a risky move and potentially cost him his life. The show heavily emphasizes Daryl's grandfather, drawing comparisons between their mindset towards fighting for something bigger than themselves. Additionally, the original plans for the show included Daryl's death, making it a plausible outcome. This spinoff season could be Daryl's chance for a proper send-off.
