The name isn't quite as concrete — some say Darlenn — but the fandom is strong. From the looks of Tumblr, a lot of fans have been shipping them since the Season 1 episode "Vatos." When Daryl and Glenn's gun smuggling project goes awry, Daryl shows some subtle — but very apparent — affection for Glenn. Whether or not that's platonic is up to you. (For now.)
And here's the thing: this is a ship that Norman himself has commented on. “I think in Season 4, he [Daryl] and the Glenn character, I think they really have a lot of romantic time that they spend together, and alone time,” Norman quips in an Entertainment Weekly video. “And I think, you know, it is a prison and I think that that’s probably where his character is going to go. Maggie? Who’s Maggie? You know what I mean? It’s Glenn and Daryl from here on!”
Okay, he might have been joking. Or he might not have.
Some fans get a little more explicit with their shipping than others, but the way EnduringMadness on YouTube imagines a Glenn/Daryl pairing is relatively innocent. Glenn loves his car. Daryl loves Glenn. Adele is playing in the background, which is really the ideal backdrop of any and all romantic torment, whether a crossbow and zombies are involved or not. See the video below!
Yes, Glenn and Maggie might get married, and Maggie's a girl. But sexuality is fluid, you guys, and the jury's still out on Daryl, anyway.
