There's long been rumors that Daryl Dixon on "The Walking Dead" might be gay, based on the facts that he seems to have a significant disinterest in women and that he's had no romantic plotlines whatsoever over the show's first four seasons. Now "Dead" creator Robert Kirkland has officially responded to those rumors:

"All I can say is that it's been discussed," he said. "We have very specific ideas about Daryl's sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there's ever a quiet period in the show where he's not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we'll tackle it in the show."

Does this mean Daryl will get himself a post-apocalyptic coming out episode? Seems like a good possibility, unless he dies first of course.
