Daryl Dixon's future on The Walking Dead is uncertain after he was seen in France in the season finale, with no clear indication of how he will return to America. Speculation suggests that a reunion with Rick Grimes may occur in the spinoff series, but nothing is confirmed. Daryl's connection to the wider Walking Dead universe is hinted at through Carol's inclusion in his spinoff. Daryl's iconic angel-winged vest symbolized leaving the past behind and his desire for independence. The vest also paid homage to his brother Merle and Judith, symbolizing his found family. The vest's absence may suggest that Daryl won't return to Alexandria. Carol's search for Daryl could potentially bridge the two locations. However, Daryl's future remains uncertain until season 2 of his spinoff provides more answers.
