If you've been watching after the mid-season premiere of "The Walking Dead", then chances are you or someone you know has likely mentioned the absence of Daryl Dixon as played by Norman Reedus.  Fear not, we're missing him, too.  If the brief preview of the next episode of the show is any indication, we're about to get our fix.  Until then, here's our take on why we're missing the great Norman Reedus on "The Walking Dead". 

1.  Daryl is Rick's right-hand man and if anyone can help them adequately get the prison team back together, it's him.  They all got separated when the Governor and his group attacked and Daryl along with his trusty bow are usually what stands in the way of a walker and a regular person.
