(TV SHOW) That was really sad to see and I almost cried...

It was a suicide mission Merle knew that, and so did we but it was so depressing to see him losing his finger and getting shot by the Governor (Philip), but the worst part was..

Seeing Merle as a walker and Daryl having to kill him. The two brothers.

Despite what he did to Maggie and Glenn, it was under the influence of the orders that the governor gave him.

If someone I loved turned to a walker, I couldn't bring myself to put an end to it, it'd just be too much on myself.

P.S.: If Andrea had killed Philip when she had the chance none of this would have happened. He deserves to die for everyone that he's murdered.

It's Daryl's duty to kill the governor now for what he did to his brother!

  • ^I liked Merle despite the hate on him. Also, he lost his hand :P I know what you mean when you speak of walkers of loved ones, I'm not completely sure I could do what would be needed to be done, but I'd like to think I could.
    Edit: I see it at a wide street for Phillip's death: Andrea, Daryl, Rick, Michonne, Tyresse, Ben's father(don't know name), or Milton. MANY possiblities, all with reasonable purposes.

  • This scene was sad, actually. In the beginning of the shows I thought they wouldn't see him again, and I really wasn't complaining since I didn't feel much for his character. I did think he was a bit badass though. But in this scene I couldn't help but feel terrible for Daryl. I seriously think Andrea should've killed the governer when she had those 76543 other chances, then maybe we wouldn't be in this mess.

  • When I first seen Merle, I admit that I hated his guts because of the way he acts. I didn't even like the fact that he had returned in season 3. But after what The Governor just did to him, and the look on Daryl's face, I'm not even sure if I feel satisfied at all with the fact that he's gone. (for real this time)

    There is one thing that I respected about him; his strong sense of family loyalty. As much of a dick that he's always been, he always had his little brother Daryl on his mind and has been doing everything for him to the very end.

    Daryl's crying broke my heart, seriously, poor man, he never had much, and now his bro's gone, and he had to do it...
    There was a time where I really, really, really hated Merle, but I believe, that deep inside he regretted what he did to Glenn and Maggie, I know, there's no evidence for that, but... I don't know. As a character he was great, mostly due to Michael Rooker playing him, the voice was really great, and the looks fitted the type of character.

    As Merle shouted: "I AIN'T GONNA BEG!" that was one of the most epic moments in the show. Say 'bout him what you want, but he went out with pride, and he was an asshole till the bitter end, although, he seemed to have changed a little, like a stone started rolling, he let Michonne go, and he tried to kill the Governor, it might have been for pure revenge reasons, but due to the fact, that he let Michonne go, it might as well have been to help Rick's group, or maybe even to save them, to make up for any pain he caused to them, after all, from all of them he knew Phil best, he knew what this guy was up to. He didn't tell Rick, Glenn, nor Daryl, maybe to not put them in danger, or to not put Daryl in danger, maybe he planned to run off and kill Phil some time ago. Guess we won't find out.

  • It really was surprisingly touching. But I liked Merle from the beginning. I love "characters you love to hate" IF done correctly. Usually they're deeper than they seem. (And he was.) I was glad that they gave him a great death, and I'm glad that he was redeemed at the end. :P
    But it was horrible for Daryl. It was sad to watch him have to take Merle out, but it was great - both for the story, and the character. Who really wants to have their loved ones out eating people, turning them, continuing the cycle.

    As for if I could do it, if I absolutely had to, I would. I would rather put them down with love than have some stranger use them in an arena somewhere.

  • I hated Merle at first, then tolerated him after he returned. I really started to like him in this episode. Oh, and according to Michael Rooker, the actor who portrayed Merle, it wasn't a suicide mission. Merle was going to get in (succeeded) kill the Governor's people (succeeded) possibly the Governor (failed, because of Ben) and get out (failed). Anyone else find it kind of funny that the guy who screwed up Merle's shot on the Governor was named Ben? I sure did.

    Yeah, even now, and even in the show Ben screws things up, seriously "Ben" seems to be the synonymous for "bad luck." Our group in the game had "Ben" following them... and "Ben" was the reason so much shit happened.
    Well... if it comes to a ZA in the real world, kill anyone who's called "Ben" to be sure, or stay the hell away from them. (If anyone feels offended, that's just a joke of course...)

    Get enough "Ben"s in one room, probably end up causing the ZA.

  • Merle went down like a boss. Respect. He has his issues, but the way he tried to take on the Woodbury army by himself shows that he was also capable of acting intelligently and not as self-centered as he likes others to think. The sad part is no one from Rick's group really knows what happened to him, and so even in death, he will still remain an outsider except to his brother Daryl.

  • I was crying my eyes out cause of Daryl's face..I haven't cryed this hard since I finished ep 5..Jk,I had a tear coming down my cheek,but it wasn't as sad as Lee's thingy..
    And I FUCKING hate Andrea,that little scumbag deserved it,she had the chance to kill the governor..Her car is a slut,that's all I'm gonna say -.-
    NB:No hate on Laurie Holden,she's rad!
