Wow, am I glad this show is back! Sooooo much going on in this ep. I wish it was 2 hours long just so we could get more of it.
I loved the beginning where Merle and Daryl are forced to fight each other and for a split second you find yourself thinking "Is Merle really going to kill his brother?" but then you realize there's no way he would do that and sure enough, he says to Daryl "just play along little brother", so they could get out of there.
I do think Rick was wrong in not letting Merle come back to the prison because Daryl has been such an asset to the group and almost like family. I understand why Rick didn't want to bring him the prison, but he should have just blindfolded Merle and then taken him back. Yes, tensions would have been high for a while, but I think Merle would have eventually played nice and got along. He doesn't really have an alternative at this point since Governor was going to kill him.
I also think Rick is making a mistake in not letting Tyrese and his small group stay. Yes, the others wanted to pull a coup while Rick was gone, but Tyrese and the other girl didn't and they stopped them. In any event, we know Tyrese is here to stay, so Rick will change his mind on that. I just hope he comes to his senses and goes after Daryl to try and get him back.
What I don't get is Andrea. How stupid is this chick? If she didn't figure out how bad the Governor was before, this episode clearly shows her how evil this guy is and she STILL stays there instead of leaving with Rick and the others. Unbelievable
Can't wait for next week's ep!
A good start to the rest of this season.Rick couldnt bring Merle back without tearing the camp apart.Merle forced the issue because he knew Daryl would leave with him.The only reason Rick didnt shoot him on the spot was trying to keep Daryl and it would have resulted in Daryl turning on them.Ricks seems on the road to complete looney-toons
While completely understandable I hope they dont drag it out forever.Given what is coming he better get it together.He was about to say yes to Tyrees group when ghost Laurie shows up.Pretty sure they get in but may regret it!Best bet on the next person to die-Carol-along with the two guys in that group.I wouldnt put long odds on the girl either.Carol got a good bit of exposure lately and seems to be at peace which equals DEATH
Andrea is caught in a no win situation and my guess is she will kill the governor and probably doesnt make it out this season.There are so many things going on and the Merle/Daryl thread will be interesting.Next week cant come soon enough.
