The Walking Dead sparks fan warfare with post teasing Daryl's 'soulmate' – with Carol and Connie as frontrunners

THE Walking Dead fans have locked horns over one of the show's most beloved character.

Daryl Nixon, played by Norman Reedus, has fronted the AMC zombie drama since its first season, going on to outstay leading man Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).

However, one aspect of Daryl that has remained shrouded in mystery has been his love life.

The crossbow extraordinaire has famously been a lone wolf when it comes to romance, which has resulted in many viewers praying for him to find 'the one,' apocalypse or not.

However, the show's official account ended up sparking a heated debate when it asked fans: "Does Daryl have a soulmate?"

In an accompanying video, Daryl was presented alongside the likes of Carol (Melissa McBride), Beth (Emily Kinney) and over course, Connie (Lauren Ridloff).

The clip finishes up with a picture of Darly's beloved dog, as a curveball addition.

Fans will remember that Daryl stuck up a cose bond with Beth before her death, which left him heartbroken.

Meanwhile his connection with Connie was more recent and he even made a point of learning sign language in order to better communicate with her.

Carol has been a constant presence and been with Daryl through thick and thin, but she has repeatedly been framed as Daryl's best friend rather than a prospective partner.

Suffice to say the comments were soon ablaze with fans' conflicting thoughts.

"Yes, the same one he’s had for 10 years, the one and only queen of the ZA, Carol Peletier. Stop your clowning," one user wrote.

A second echoed: "Even non-shipping fans and non-Caryl fans are going to tell you Carol is his soulmate. I thought you guys didn’t do ship stirring."

A third disagreed, writing: "Daryl and Beth were meant to be but I think her death truly broke him."

While a fourth joked: "Come on guys, it's DOG, nobody loves you like a dog."

Others chimed in with their own options, including Michonne (Danai Gurira) and even Ezekiel (Khary Payton).


The furore comes after the trailer for the season 10 finale hinted at a prominent character's death.
