Yep, it’s that time of year. ‘The Walking Dead’ returned from its winter hiatus last weekend, and even as fans have reveled in reuniting with their favorite survivors, there’s another reunion fast approaching. This other reunion is one that fans have been waiting for more than a year. That’s right. Fan-favorite Daryl Dixon will at long last be reunited with… a crossbow.
You can glimpse a preview of that fateful reunion in an exclusive preview that was initially released via ComicBook.com. The clip, which consists of a minute-long scene between Richard and Daryl alludes to the mounting tensions between the Kingdom and Negan’s Saviors, as the two men speak at a makeshift archery range. This brief conversation, of course, culminates in Daryl brandishing his former weapon of choice for the first time since his previous crossbow was stolen in the early part of the sixth season.
You can take a look at the clip for yourself here:
As for the exact circumstances that see Daryl return to his iconic weapon? Well, you’ll have to tune in to find out. The official synopsis for the episode is nothing if not vague, saying only that “While searching for a missing Alexandrian, Rick and his group encounter a mysterious collective.” This is also a longer episode than usual, as AMC has announced that an extra six minutes of content will see it run slightly past its usual 10:00 end time.
