Walking Dead boss responds to character return in season 11 ep 4

The Walking Dead spoilers follow for season 11 episode 4 ‘Rendition’.

The latest episode of The Walking Dead‘s season 11 featured the return of Leah, who was introduced in the season 10 bonus episodes as Daryl’s girlfriend. They had a cute little relationship, which was a nice shot of warmth in a show that’s so grim and dark so much of the time.

And then the latest episode revealed that she is one of the Reapers.

While this is sure to divide some fans, showrunner Angela King has revealed that it was something that was planned for a long time.

“We actually started with the idea that during the middle of the time jump that we did in season 9, Daryl got this dog,” Kang told Entertainment Weekly.

“And we’d always thought in the writer’s room that it might’ve come from some Prairie woman that was out there that he had a complicated relationship with, but we never get anything with that story. And then we wanted to do the story of the Reapers. And so we did start with the idea that maybe whoever this person is was part of the Reapers.

“This is kind of a piece of trivia, I guess – the origin story of the cabin and the episode where he meets her, which is this one, was all one story. There were flashbacks and the current story all mixed together.

“But then while we were in the middle of doing season 11, we had to sort of backtrack and do an extension [of season 10], so we separated the love story piece out.

“There are fans that have very mixed feelings about that, and others who thought the story was really interesting and loved it. But we’d always known she was a Reaper. And so in some ways I was like, ‘Well, if people don’t like her, that’s okay, because she is actually a villain and there’s a toxic element to that relationship’.”

Kang also revealed that Leah does still care for Daryl, despite what she said in the episode. She also didn’t know about Pope’s plan to set everything on fire.

Will Leah help Daryl get out of the dangerous situation he’s in, or decide that her loyalty lies with the Reapers overall?
