Can someone who read the books answer this one question for me which I've been dying to know the answer to...without ruining any specifics....

Does the storyline every bring back Merle? (Daryl's brother) I mean, they just left him off when there could have been such a great story to be had for revenge. Does he ever come back? Don't say what, how, when, why, but just yes or no...

Thanks!

As said earlier, neither are in the comic.
I could see merle popping up as a villain yelling "n----" 50 times, thus making for a stupid show though

they would be the first to go.


My guess is the zombies would take one bite and realize that the spray on tan tastes horrible.

Michael Rooker says he will be part of season 3.
http://blog.zap2it.c...r-season-3.html

Wondrous news for fans of "The Walking Dead" from WonderCon, where actor Michael Rooker announced that he will be returning to the show in Season 3 as Merle Dixon, Daryl's trouble-making older brother.

During a panel for the zombie-centric video game "Lollipop Chainsaw," Rooker discussed his return and added that he had to lose 20 pounds for the role, reports Daily Dead.

Twenty pounds? Sounds like Merle's either been on the run or perhaps imprisoned by a sadistic new character we know is arriving in Season 3, too: The Governor (David Morrissey has been cast).

Fans of the show know we last saw a living, breathing Merle on the top of an Atlanta highrise where he had been handcuffed to a pipe by Rick. In Season 2 he made a brief return in Daryl's fever dream.

Zap2it has reached out to AMC for confirmation. Also on Saturday (March 17), the show's official Twitter account sent out this message, which sure sounds like a casting announcement is on the way:

"This Sunday #TalkingDead will make a special announcement about #TWDSeason 3 live on the show! Tune in and watch 3/18 at 10pm/9c!"

Ugh... I really like this show, it is my favorite on TV. But after reading about Michonne and the comics, I hoped they would leave out her "Pets"... Unless they have a good reason for it, I will become less interested in season 3 if it goes too fantasy/sci-fi from here on. (Yes I know it is a Zombie show), but the chained up Zombies doesnt fit with the realistic/gritty aspect of the show.

They may pull it off, but im not betting the house on it.

Okay...that was an amazing finale!!! WOW! Love the hooded character.

I'm wanting to read the comics now, but I like the suspense of the show and am worried that will be ruined if I read too far. For those of you who have read the comics, is the show deviating enough to keep it surprising??

1) A character called Michonne,*****Spoiler, I dont know how to do spoiler tags****** the two Zombies are her boyfriend and best friend... Arms and jaw were removed from both so that they cannot attack her.

2) It was a prison, not a fortress.

I just read about this Michonne in the comic book and I can already tell I am going to like this character. We need more interesting characters like Daryl. Perhaps bring in a former Iraqi Republican Guard officer, a big fat comic relief, a paraplegic who can miraculously walk again and of course some guidos.

I am glad that they are talking steps away from the comic book. I haven't read the comics but people love to spoil. Its not much fun if you already know what happens like often in manga/anime series.

according to the talking dead, season 3 will have the same pacing as the last 3 episodes of season 2, so that's good to hear. I really want to read the comics, but i also want to be surprised by the show. I'm so conflicted.

Good thing they saved Herschel. They'll need his infinate ammo shotgun.

While it was an interesting finale, It was easy to predict who was going to get eaten on the way out. (dead weight) Lori's reaction to Rick was hypocritical, considering it was her who egged him on to fight for her.

At least Murphy McMannus is still cool, and I like Rick's "my way or the highway" pep talk.
