Norman Reedus Says The Wolves Aren’t Afraid ‘To Butcher People In Front Of People’

It finally happened. After so many teases, fans of The Walking Dead were finally able to look upon a few canine faces during last night’s finale. At least, right before Morgan (Lennie James) beat the crap out of the pair and stuffed them into a car. But make no mistake, the Wolves have arrived, and they’re going to make trouble for Alexandria next season.

In an interview with THR, Norman Reedus — who plays the still-not-dead-yet Daryl Dixon — talked at length about the season finale. When asked about the Wolves and how they compare to human foes past, the conversation took an exceptionally dark turn:

Daryl and Aaron have seen how smart the Wolves can be — and Morgan knows their mindset. How different is the threat of the Wolves compared with other human forces we’ve seen before like Gareth (Andrew J. West) at Terminus and The Governor(David Morrissey)?

Terminus did horrible things behind the wall; they were a wimpy and in a cowardly way tricked people to going there and then they did their evil business once you got behind their walls. These guys are roamers and they seem like a whole bunch of Daryls gone south who have gone really bad and turned into wolves. They’re probably on the move; I don’t think they’re afraid to butcher people in front of people. They seem different than Terminus; Terminus was more cowardly. They would trick you into coming to Disneyland and then eat you.

The gang has seen some pretty serious sh*t these past five seasons. Sure, The Governor was a dictatorial madman, and Terminus awkwardly mimicked the very things that were trying to kill (and eat) everyone on the planet. But the Wolves? They’ll just flat out kill you, and that’s enough to make Daryl himself uncomfortable.
