Last night was the midseason finale of Walking Dead Season 5. One that had a shocking death… that was spoiled depending on where you lived before it aired.

Regardless though, the wait is on for the second half of the season. Thankfully, there is a teaser as for what’s to come:

That’s not the only bit of Walking Dead news though. Rumors have been swirling for a long time about whether one Daryl Dixon is gay, Robert Kirkman (the show creator) took the stage to settle the matter once and for all:
“We play Daryl Dixon as being somewhat asexual on the show. I think that he is a very introverted character. I think that’s some of his appeal. I do have to clear something up though. In The Walking Dead letters column in the old comic book that I do, there was a question that made me mention that there was a possibility early on about making Daryl Dixon’s character gay and it caused quite a hubbub online. I just wanted to make it clear that I was saying the possibility is there. I would’ve been fine with it, the network would’ve been fine with it. But we ultimately didn’t do that. I can make it official, Daryl Dixon is actually straight.”
