By the look on Merle's face, I think his loyalty will ultimately be with his brother.

I'm not so sure about Merle...I think his only loyalty is to Merle. I have a feeling he just wants to be reunited with Daryl so he can have someone to boss around again. If that's the case, I think he's going to get a mighty big shock when he finds out little brother ain't a push over anymore. :D

Nice episode.
Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
I agree:
Merle and loyal only to himself.
He loves his brother ....
if you must choose, will choose only ever Daryl

Daryl loves his brother
if you must choose, he will choose only his brother,
Carol and of course:-D

I want to see the face of the governor when he finds out that the 10 people to have a prison were released:
A child, an old man, two young girls, a pregnant woman ......... LoL
I do not think Merle makes us a good impression .....


The governor I like ...
I think he's a good person .. :wub:
I know, I know
I end up with love always the bad guys ...
and stronger than me
I find in them the good side.

Again...I wouldn't be so sure where either of the Dixon brothers are concerned. Merle's not the "sweet, loving" big brother you'd like to think he is. From the little of their relationship we saw during Daryl's hallucinations last season, it sure sounded like Merle basically treated him like crap and Daryl was finally coming to realize that. Also, in the past year Daryl, for the first time in his life, has been treated like a person and has people actually depending on him, which makes a big difference. I think...at least I hope...there has been far too much growth on Daryl's part for him to just throw it all away and fall back into step with Merle. And I honestly think Merle just wants someone he can boss around because he's been having to rely on others all this time and he's not used to it and doesn't like it...he prefers being in control.

I'm not sure either one's motives or reactions are going to be that clear cut in the end. Can't wait to find out!

This. I think you nailed it there. Daryl would struggle with turning his back on Merle, but in the end I think he will choose Rick/Glenn/Maggie over Merle.

Jumping in to the discussion here. Totally agree that Daryl will choose the group over his psychotic, evil brother. It wouldn't be a legitimate character move for him not to.

I knew tossing the walker in with him was a bad idea, after clearing the prison if there's one thing that wouldn't scare him that's it.


I guess being locked up inside those walls has made even Merle a bit soft and fearful. He thinks that walker will scare Glenn, he told the Guv that the prison couldn't be cleared, and he seems pretty scared of the red zone. He's not a hardened zombie killer like all the members of Team Prison.

The whole thing with Milton was creepy. I assume he's trying to find a cure for the Governor's daughter, but someone really needs to slap him upside the head. There's no curing it, dumbass! Guess I can't totally fault him for trying though.

I don't think it was his idea, I think the governor is making him do it. He knows it's pointless but he's afraid to say that to the governor.

Couldn't fault Rick and co. for tossing the cabin guy out to the walkers either, as brutal as it was, it was their only choice at the moment.
It's the same thing Shane did to Otis, only back then it seemed like such a horrible thing to do. My, how a year in the apocalypse has changed us all.

This caught my attention. I honestly tried to think of how it wasn't the same - and the only thing I could think of is the fact that the guy was clearly nuts - but it didn't work. It really was very much the same - Rick hasn't been one to shy away from throwing someone to the wolves to put the group in a safer position this season. Things def. have changed.

Well, Michonne put her sword through the guy's neck, so it is different from what Shane did. Rick didn't kill the guy.

Sorry, but it is different. The guy was about to open the door and let a bunch zombies in, which would have put everyone's lives directly on the line. With Shane and Otis, yeah, the zombies were on their tail but we don't know for sure that they couldn't get away. There was a still a chance, however slim. And on a more basic level, Shane didn't kill Otis, just wounded him and left him to be ripped apart by the zombies, which was brutal. At least Michonne killed the guy before they tossed him to the walkers. I see it as very different.

And yeah, I'm sure the Governor is forcing Milton to do his experiments, but I'm not so sure Milton thinks its pointless. I got the feeling that he genuinely believed he could do some good.

I get this sense as well. I don't think Milton completely hates what he's doing. He seems like he really cares about his work and not just because he's being forced into doing something - but he has a sense of passion in what he believes could be good results for humanity. Why else would he risk his neck the day he did - only to be saved by Andrea? Could be stupidity - but not with Milton's case .

What I gathered was that Milton believes he can find a cure....He's just ignorant to the realities as Andrea found out when she asked if he'd ever seen someone change.

Can't disagree - I think this is key to the entire Woodbury plot. Their entire town - aside from the Gov's key men - is completely clueless it seems to the real danger that exists. It's an advantage that team prison should have in any kind of battle.

Yep...that's the sense I got too. The Governor has managed to keep them all sheltered so they really have no concept about what it's like out there on the front lines. Though Merle obviously knows and that girl Andrea was talking to on the wall was talking about her family members being killed, so some of them obviously have at least some idea of the darker side of things. Still, as you said, the general sense of naivete should be a help for Rick and co., although it could also hamper them because it may be harder to convince the rest of the people in Woodbury of what it's really like out there...kind of like they had to work to bring Hershel around. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

Geeze...I knew the mid-season finale was going to be a doozy but that surprised even me!

Kudos to Carl for showing he's got a set. Not the way I expected Tyrese to be introduced...thought he was going to be in Woodbury. But I'm liking that development.

As for Woodbury...once again, Glen stepped up big time. Any kind of weapon in a storm, but dayum!

And then the whole Governor/Michonne thing. I was wondering where that was heading...didn't think they'd kill off that major a character so soon but wow!!

And you knew Michonne showing up, even if she hadn't attacked the Governor, was going to **** him off, knowing Merle had lied to him. So as soon as they started showing him giving his little speech in the fight club area I knew it didn't bode well for Merle or Daryl. I have a sick feeling they're going to make them fight each other. Either way, it's not looking good for the Dixon boys. They kill of Daryl and I will lose it.

And through it all Andrea stands around looking like a deer in the headlights. Does she have to be hit directly over the head to get the point that the Governor is not a good guy?! GEEZE!

So now we wait till February...damn this show. They always leave us hanging big time!!
