Re: Petition to bring back a killed Walking Dead character (SPOILERS)
And if people are polling for Andrea and not for Merle, that's obviously a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.
While Michael Rooker played the part well, Merle was inconsistently written, half the time as a moronic redneck stereotype, with a shoehorned in redemptive arc in his last episode. He's not that much worth more saving than Andrea... but then, this is Walking Dead, character is not the show's strong point.
