I know why I’m here. I know what I did to Denise. To you. To other people. It doesn’t matter why. I knew I’d have to face it. To pay. And I should. I’m ready. I got to see Negan get taken down, and that’s enough. Me? I’m a piece of shit. There’s no going back to how things were. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Please. Please.Dwight to Daryl Dixon, shortly before being spared by his old nemesis.

Dwight, also known as “D.”, is a main character and a former antagonist as well as a survivor of the outbreak in AMC’s The Walking Dead. He is a former high-ranking member of The Saviors who serves as an antagonist of the second half of Season 6and the first half of Season 7.

After his ex-wife Sherry released Daryl and fled The Sanctuary, Dwight becomes estranged with life as a Savior, and decides to ally with Rick to dethrone Negan.

After outright betraying the Saviors during the destruction of Alexandria, Dwight was a full-fledged member of the Militia for a brief time. In order to buy the survivors of Alexandria more time to escape, Dwight rejoined the Saviors as a mole, protected as no one knew of his betrayal, until Laura returned to the Sanctuary and blew his cover.

Following Negan’s defeat and the end of the war, Dwight is exiled by Daryl due to his past actions but is encouraged to go and find his wife, Sherry.



Dwight is shown to be a brave, highly intelligent and caring person who is a strong, determined survivor and a loving husband towards his wife, Sherry.Dwight is initially introduced as being completely disgusted living a life as a Savior and as a result attempted to get Sherry and sister-in-law Tina as far away as possible and is even willing to cause harm to his former group members in order to escape. While he appreciates the help that Daryl gives them in the forest, Dwight, following Tina’s death, quickly betrays him and steals his possessions, showing that he has cowardly tendencies and can be a liar and manipulative.Following being punished by Negan for fleeing the Sanctuary and causing Tina’s death and being permanently mutilated and separated from Sherry, Dwight is shown to become fanatically loyal to the Saviors again and devolves into an antagonist.He is shown to have developed a personal vendetta against Daryl as he attempts to kill him with his own crossbow, though he kills Deniese instead and shows little remorse, showing that he is capable of cold-blooded murder.He is shown to want to fulfill Negan’s wishes of taking over Alexandria as he attempts to force Daryl and Rosita to take them to their base, though he is stopped by them. Following this he cruelly captures Glenn and Michonne and then Rosita and Daryl and personally delivers them to join the rest of their group in being punished by Negan.His desire to kill Daryl is very evident as he volunteers to kill him after he punches Negan in the face after killing Abraham though Negan does not allow him to. Following this Dwight is left in charge of torturing Daryl psychologically after he is taken as a prisoner and takes some pleasure in tormenting him and is visibly upset when he discovers that Daryl was released by Sherry. He even takes pleasure in taunting Rosita and Aaron when he and his fellow group members arrive at Alexandria to collect their tribute.In spite of his cruel side, Dwight is gradually revealed to be loyal to the Saviors only for the purposes of protecting Sherry from harm and it is revealed that the only reason Negan allowed him to live was after Sherry offered herself up as one of Negan’s wives.Dwight is secretly shown to despise Negan for taking his wife away from him and for his overall cruelty towards others. After Sherry vanishes, Dwight is deeply saddened and in order to protect her from being hunted down and killed by Negan, he is able to frame Emmett Carson, who is then brutally killed by Negan, showing the extreme measures that Dwight is willing to resort to to protect his wife from harm.
