Daryl's Best Kill On The Walking Dead, According To Norman Reedus

The Walking Dead is knee deep into its sixth season, so fans of the show have seen some gruesome acts of violence committed to both humans and the unending hordes of zombies. One of the most lethal characters on the AMC drama is the fan favorite and possum eating Daryl Dixon. He’s killed insane amounts of walkers, single-handedly taken out a tank, and put down a zombie version of his brother Merle. So, which kill is Daryl’s best? Actor Norman Reedus recently opened up regarding his all-time favorite kill, check it out below.

There’s been a bunch. I really liked the chain and taking off the three zombie heads with the chain. That was kind of awesome — very Indiana Jones-ish.

This statement, which comes to us from EW, shows how well Norman Reedus recalls his kills in The Walking Dead. Considering just how many there were, it speaks to his dedication to remember certain scenes to vividly.

Daryl Dixon’s chain kill came to us just last season. Following the group’s arrival and attempt at assimilation in the Alexandria safe-zone, Daryl found himself with a new job. After connecting with fellow Alexandria outsiders, the couple Aaron and Eric, Mr. Dixon began accompanying Aaron on missions to recruit more survivors into the community.

On a mission with Aaron, Daryl and the Alexandrian were caught in a trap set by the Wolves. In search of supplies, the two open a Cargo Van’s door and it triggered the release of a large sum of walkers. The duo barely survived the encounter, and Daryl ended up using a found chain to decapitate three walkers at once. It was truly one of the coolest walker kills we’ve ever seen. Watch the scene below.

Pretty gnarly right? Norman Reedus also recounted the close second to his Indiana Jones moment.

I also like putting my hand up inside the walker’s eyeballs and using him like a bowling ball and smashing that cop across the face.

Once again, Norman Reedus just gets it. The above scene happened during the group’s conflict with Dawn and the officers of Grady Memorial Hospital. Daryl was close to being killed by one of the officers, when he used the skull of an zombie to fight back and save himself.
