WARNING: Spoilers for 'The Walking Dead' comic series and TV series ahead. Do not read on unless you are OK with seeing both!

After talking to Carol about his regret in not killing the couple who stole his motorcycle and crossbow, Daryl was haunted by the ghosts of his past when Dwight returned in Episode 14 of The Walking Dead.

Yep, sadly for poor Denise, Dwight returned meaner than ever before, and also sporting a rather painful-looking burn on the side of his face. Although we've met Dwight twice now, you might still be a little uncertain about who he is exactly, so if you want to learn more about the man who got his dick bit in Episode 14, take a look below and find out exactly who we're dealing with.

A Member Of The Saviors

Dwight is a character who first appears in Issue 98 of the comic series after he kills Abraham by shooting an arrow through his head (in the TV series it was Denise who met this fate). He is revealed to be a member of Negan's Saviors and seems to be one of his main men.

Much like in the TV series — shortly after his introduction in the comic series — a bound and tied Eugene bites Dwight in the trousers in order to distract him and allow Rick's men to shoot at his group.

Punished By Negan

Unlike the TV series, which introduced us to an unscarred Dwight, in the comic series he always had a heavily scarred face. Dwight's injuries came as a result of breaking Negan's rules (sleeping with Sherry who was his ex-wife and one of Negan's current wives) and his face being hot ironed as punishment.

Bad Guy Turned Good

Despite his treachery early on in the comic series, eventually Dwight ends up actually helping Rick and the gang, revealing his hatred for Negan — something which TV audiences already had some inkling of, thanks to Daryl overhearing him saying, "[Daryl's] probably just a soldier from one of the outposts. He probably hates him, too," back in Episode 6 of Season 6.

So after his actions in Episode 6 (stealing Daryl's bike and crossbow) and Episode 14 (killing Denise), can we expect Dwight to follow the same path as his comic book counterpart, or is this TV version a much more brutal version of Dwight? Only time will tell — what do you think?

'The Walking Dead' returns with Episode 15, 'East' on Sunday, March 27 on AMC.

What do you think about Dwight?
