Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Daryl is no longer the follower “baby brother?” Merle followed Daryl. Daryl has grown THAT much and he even knows it himself now. He stood up, and not just once. He called Merle out as many times as it took to put him in his place. And MERLE FOLLOWED DARYL. Yes, it also has to do with their shared bond of abuse, but if you think that’s the only reason, you need to reevaluate. And it’s likely not over, but the foundation has been laid. The seed is sown. DARYL DIXON NOW TRULY AIN’T NOBODY’S BITCH.
