The Walking Dead: Do you miss Daryl’s crossbow?

Daryl Dixon is synonymous with many things on The Walking Dead. He lost his signature crossbow before he returned to Alexandria. Do you miss it?

Daryl Dixon. Angel wings on the back of a vest. Sleeveless shirts. Long, dirty, wispy hair in his eyes. Squirrels. Motorcycle. There are so many things that are strongly associated with Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead.

A crossbow. A new crossbow stolen from Shumpert in Woodbury. Daryl has always been a crossbow man, Joe from the Claimers liked that about him. Something about distinguishing him from the used-to-be soccer dads in the pre-gone-to-heck world.

Before making his way back to Alexandria with Abraham and Sasha in the nice, big fuel truck named Patty, Daryl lost his precious motorcycle and crossbow.

As it turns out, Patty was more helpful than the motorcycle and crossbow combined as additional transportation for Sasha and Abe, helping the trio get out of the scrape with Negan’s men, and helping with Alexandria’s stand against the herd.

From a fan standpoint, and sentimental standpoint for Daryl, do you miss the crossbow? Do you think Daryl misses his crossbow? We saw him use the RPG for Negan’s men and “fire lake walker trap”. In some pictures we see him with different guns. (I don’t know guns-I know the commenters will help me out with the specific terms. It’s a gun to me.)

How does Daryl look with a gun? I think he seems okay with it. He seems to have lots of freedom of movement. He matches Rick in symmetry. So that’s fun. I think he’ll be okay.

Michonne without her katana seems more out-of-place. But a sword is less cumbersome than a crossbow. Michonne said she didn’t miss it though when she lost it in Terminus. It was people she missed.

With Negan looming and Dwight and his girlfriend talking about property and owing things, they seem like they must have escaped from Negan or be associated with him in some way. Daryl has a chance of reuniting with his crossbow before the end of the season.

Hopefully, Negan, or Dwight, or the girl, or anyone for that matter, doesn’t use it against Daryl in some way.  I like irony, but let’s not have that one be ironic.

What do you think? Is it odd to see Daryl without his crossbow? Do you think he’ll get it back or another one? How about his motorcycle? Do you think Daryl misses them? Have some Dixon discussion in the comments.
