    I thought it seemed odd too but maybe its because Dwight stole Daryl's stuff twice in the same episode (when they first met), killed Denise, and fed him dog food sandwiches. Daryl doesn't seem to be in much of a forgiving mood these days. Plus, Daryl is at the Hilltop with Maggie and I don't know as she wants any former Saviors there.

    That's funny, during the episode, as the Saviors surrender on the hill, they showed Maggie, and I thought her face said, "I don't want anymore of these people!"

    I think Daryl let Dwight go because he both listened to Tara and maybe even Rick and remembered his debt to Sherry. Ill be surprised if we see Dwight again there was a feeling of finality about his last scene at his home.

    Despite his mercy towards Dwight, Daryl probably still wants Negan dead and thus we have the Hilltop conspiracy, which I suspect is about killing Negan and not ousting Rick. They are acting unilaterally, but so is Rick. He is no longer the boss of everyone.

    Team Maggie!!
    I do hope you're wrong about Dwight not being seen again. To me, he's the best thing about the show in its current version.

    Guess Daryl couldn't handle someone being more interesting than him... in other words, he's gonna send everybody away by the next season finale.

    Daryl has always been a favorite of mine, but it is somewhat inconsistent to let Dwight go and continue to want Negan dead, I think. My best guess is that Daryl feels a huge obligation to Maggie (and so will side with her over Rick regarding Negan) as it was after his outburst that Negan killed Glenn.

    I don't mind if I'm wrong. I'd prefer Dwight, even though he killed Denise, to stick around over Negan. Dwight's last scene just felt final to me.

    Though I do wonder how interesting Dwight might be after the AOW.

    As for Daryl wanting to kill Negan after he'd just let Dwight go: Dwight did some evil things but was also a victim of Negan, who was the architect of everybody's woes and tragedies. Negan is infinitely worse.

Frankly, I think it was only for Sherry that Daryl allowed Dwight to live.

    Did Daryl have the right to act unilaterally? He thinks so, just like he thought Tara had the right to kill Dwight. At the moment, there's really no system of government with Rick's group. Maggie and Zeke have some sort of system. Rick's been too focused on war to think about justice, but I think his handling of Negan is his first step.

    I hope Dwight will not be gone too long, or if he is I hope we'll see him from time to time. I can only hope that a little time (which on this show could cover seasons!) will soften Daryl's mind toward Dwight as, perhaps, Eugene can explain the risks Dwight took to help TF. Yes, Negan did clear Dwight on the sabotage issue; but I think Daryl's anger, fueled to an even higher level when he witnessed Maggie's angst over Rick's failure to kill Negan, was part of what's driving Daryl right now.

    I hope Team Dwerrylusional will experience the satisfaction of a Dwerry reunion early in season 9!
    I agree 100%. Daryl is still reeling from these experiences with him, Negan, and the Saviors, and with Negan still alive, Daryl doesn't see the problem as being completely settled. I don't think Daryl will ever fully be able to forgive Dwight, but I think he has recognized that Dwight has tried to redeem himself and that's why he let him live. Also for Sherry reasons. Daryl gave him the best he could at the time. His life and a truck to go find his wife. I'm expecting something to happen next season or sometime in the future that will further Dwight's redemption with Daryl because I'm doubting that's the last time we see him have any interaction with Daryl and the group.

    I do wish Tara had some part in the decision, but I see why TPTB had it play out the way it did with just Daryl. It was established that Tara was thankful for Dwight for helping them and had decided to let him live, but Daryl's side of things was still more on the fence, so it made for more tension and uncertainty. That might be a reason why Daryl acted without her as well. I would love to get a scene next season between Daryl and Tara with Tara asking why he still doesn't forgive Dwight or something of the sort.

    I think Dwight has the potential to have the greatest effect on Daryl's growth of any existing character on the show right now, and Daryl still has a lot of growing to do. Daryl had a great effect on Dwight's growth. Sherry made a comparison between Daryl and Dwight in her first letter to him of a couple of seasons ago, and I think that letter had a lot to do with why Dwight returned to the Sanctuary in order to do what he could to bring Negan down. I do hope the show explores that avenue without making Dwight a plot device for Daryl.

    I don't know if Daryl's plan was to kill Dwight, as he had promised Dwight he would do after the war, when he drove out with Dwight; but I like the way it worked out. Daryl actually acted without acting out, which is not Daryl's typical MO. I think he didn't take Tara along because Tara had already declared her change of heart about wanting to kill Dwight along with her various reasons for that, which leads me to believe he either left with the intention of killing Dwight or was struggling with the decision and wanted to leave that option available. I think Dwight saved himself with his humility, repentance, acceptance of his own responsibility for his own bad actions, validation of Daryl's anger toward him, and acceptance of whatever fate Daryl had in store for him. Dwight made Daryl the good guy in Dwight's outcome, and not only did Dwight get to live but he got to experience the joy of redemption in that and in the knowledge that Sherry still loved and was waiting for him. To me, that was a deeply rewarding aspect of the finale.

    Absolutely.

    I actually think that's one thing that the show did right in S8. So far, Daryl has developed Dwight into a likable character without TPTB making him a plot device for Daryl. In my opinion, it's one of the more realistic and interesting storylines the show had going for it right now. I'd love to see them interact more (which, I'm certain that we will) and have Daryl learn from Dwight in the future. That scene between them was my favorite part of the finale. Even though it left things a little uncertain with Dwight, it probably ended the best way it could have at the time.

    IMO Daryl ensured Dwight's safety by removing him from Saviors (who would see him as someone who betrayed all of them by aligning with their enemies). Most of the saviors might be relieved by the end of Negan's rule but there are bound to be some who liked being in charge and making their slaves do all the work.
    Dwight is not the ultimate good guy here. He Ddid Negan's bidding. He killed Denise and certainly aided Negan's capture of all those at the lineup. He tortured Daryl because he was ordered to by Negan. Daryl wanted him gone but he didn't take him out to murder him. Daryl recognized that Dwight loved Sherry and may be he deserved a chance to go find his girl. Look at Dwight when he finds Sherry's letter. He was a happy man. A man on a mission.
    Daryl let his mercy overcome his wrath. He showed some growth in doing that.
