The Walking Dead fans have long been speculating whether Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) will find romance in the apocalypse. It seemed likely that he would shack up with Carol (Melissa McBride) after the pair bonded when her daughter Sophia went missing in Season 2.

But with Season 4 taking Carol out of the picture (at least for now), rumours are that Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) might steal the redneck’s heart.

The mid-season finale saw them leave the prison together, and an intimate selfie posted on Norman Reedus’ Twitter feed reveals the pair looking very cosy…

“I’m trying not to play him like someone who’s had a lot of experience and the type of guy that screws girls over, because I think he would be very sincere and a loyal, good boyfriend.”

Expect to see a lot more of the loveable badass when Season 4 of The Walking Dead returns this Monday. There’s even a special episode dedicated entirely to Daryl Dixon where we’ll finally discover the answer to the question: what job did he really do before the zombie apocalypse? Answers on a postcard.

The Walking Dead, Season 4 Part 2 starts on Monday 10 February at 9pm on FOX. AND IT CAN’T COME SOON ENOUGH!
