* HEADCANON. Daryl once got in a fight with Ed after seeing him hit Carol. From the beginning, the ever observant Daryl had noticed the signs of the abuse, and it reminded him of his own mother, dismissing her husband hitting her. And Daryl hated it, hated that he couldn’t stop his dad or save his mom from it. Merle kept telling him to keep his mouth shut because whenever he did end up protecting his mom he’d get the beating.
But one day on a water run Daryl actually sees Ed hit Carol and he snaps and stomps over, telling Ed he had no right doing that to her. Ed just sneered and pushed Daryl back a bit, which Daryl retaliated with a punch in the jaw.
It escalates and Ed is obviously able to subdue Daryl, and had Daryl’s head dunked under water before Rick stepped in and separated them.
Thankfully, Ed died soon after and wasnt able to kill Daryl for the act.
Who on the Lost Light would carve jack-o-lanterns, who would eat too many sweets, and who would just sigh and move along?
