So I'm currently doing a re-watch and I'm on season 3 and booooy was Daryl different, and dare I say... likable?? The man is speaking in full sentences and I can understand everything he is saying without the captions on. There is some nice character growth going on as well especially with the way he stepped up when Rick was going through his crazy phase. I know Norman likes to describe Daryl as a little kid but I never saw him that way in the first few seasons.
