This article (and several posters) repeatedly refer to Daryl as "broken". My question: why? I mean - we know Negan is definitely trying to break Daryl, both personally directly, and with Dwight's assistance. Unless I've missed something, however, we've seen no sign to indicate Negan has succeeded. Daryl's refusal in "Cell" to answer Negan's "what's your name?" question in a suitably capitulatory manner, in fact, would indicate the exact opposite.
We can postulate (successfully, I believe) a significant degree of timeline disjunct between Episodes 3 and 4; Ep3 appeared to (IHMO anyway) at least strongly infer a passage of several days (weeks? months?) expended in trying to break Daryl, while Ep4 occurs within 3-4 days after the Great Negan Brain-Bash-O-Rama - Negan gave ASZ a week to get "half [their] shit" together, but then showed up "early". If Daryl was not broken by the end of the "Cell" timeline, then I'd hazard the guess it's virtually certain he was not broken in a significantly shorter time frame, such as 3 or 4 days.
And lest anybody think behavioral acquiescence automatically translates to surrender, I refer you to a viewing of Cool Hand Luke - the turtle-shooting scene in particular. :)
Of course that ledger is wildly inaccurate. I thought Carol more than adequately demonstrated the ASZHats kept better count of their chocolate bars than of their weapons and ammunition.
That's a fair, if argumentative point. That's really just my shorthand way of saying "Remember last week when they tried to break Daryl? He sure looks and acts pretty broken, huh?" We all know he's probably going to snap out of it at the right moment and kick a foot in someone's ass, get his crossbow and ride off with his motorcycle. But for the time being, he's essentially acting like he's broken.
Breaking someone is surely not as binary as the show would expect us to believe. But right now the switch it set to "Broken" at least in the TWD universe.
