I just hope it ends. I'm kind of bored with the whole governor storyline. They could have dealt with it in half the time.

Norman Reedus acted the shit out of that death scene, by Walking Dead standards. Good for him.

At least Merle did a few good deeds before he died.

but the Walking Dead producers are just conflicted as hell i bet to kill off these incredibly interesting characters like Shane and Merle. But their death benefits the show until another interesting bad boy with great survival instincts steals the show. Its becoming a vicious cycle.

I thought this was a really solid episode. I really believe the show does it's best when it limits it's focus per episode. And this one bounced around a little, but it really centered on Merle. It's bouncing around was really limited to bouncing various characters off of Merle.

It's really time for this Governor character to run it's course. It's really crazy how much Michone has developed in a few episodes after a full season of almost nothing.

Yeah, it's because it had the traditional 3 acts, small story, different locations, and an actual goal.

Act 1: We need to get Michonne to the place.
Act 2: Merle grabs her, they travel, he lets her go.
Act 3: Merle goes off alone.

The story is all Merle. People bounce ideas off of him, talk to him, and he is the driving force behind the episode. He actually grows a little, or lets out real parts of himself.

Prison, walking in neighborhood, abandoned house, abandoned motel, road, bar, drop point... 5 of those are new.

But it figures they kill off the best actor on the show... I get that characters need to die because it proves the threats are real, but why get rid of a dynamic character and good actor? Just get rid of some bland one note character, they have a ton to choose from.

I think Merle was always a good guy, but he let his bad side overtake his good. I think we all have a good side to us and a bad. Merle was overall a good guy but misunderstood, and it is only now that we truly understand him. Remember, people -Governor & Rick to some degree, Shane before Rick arrived- were using him for their own gain much of the time (not that Merle was a saint, but we can now understand the reasons behind his aggression).

Throughout the journey, Merle does grow a bit, but we also start to know him a bit better. I think he was a bit insecure in trying to get accepted by others, but nobody was accepting him like his little brother Daryl. People looked down on Merle and essentially spat on him, took advantage of him and he embraced that by mirroring that anger back at everyone else. I hope I made some sense there :P

R.I.P. Merle

I think he it was more that people mirrored him than he mirrored them. I think he felt more of a 'It's me against the world' motivation because of the abuse he experienced growing up (thus he mirrored his dad, not the way people viewed him). The time when he saw Daryl's scars was the most important reveal to his character IMO. His father beat him and he took the mentality that you got to be tough and nobody will understand him because of his past (not even his brother). I'm thinking he thought the assumed difference in their upbringing was why Daryl was softer and was more accepting of people. When he saw the scars, he realized that the difference between him and Daryl was internal and not because of the upbringing since they had gone through the same thing contrary to what he always believed.
