Second, I would think someone would pass out long and bleed to death before they finished cutting off their own hand.
Aron Ralston managed a similar feat, and he didn't have anything nearby with which to close the wound. Had he not been rescued when he was, Ralston WOULD have bled to death, and then we wouldn't have the movie 127 Hours. Merle at least had the fortune of locating a Bunsen burner.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I'm catching up on the last two eps before the midseason break.

Right after the scene where Michonne kills the crazy guy in the cabin and they throw his newly dead body to the walkers (who graphically devour same), the show cuts to commercial: "'The Walking Dead,' brought to you by KFC...where fresh is better."

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

IGN wrote about that here.

Whether the placement was intentional or not, I don’t think we’ll be seeing anything like it again anytime soon. KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said in written a statement: "The placement of our brand's mention was unfortunate, and KFC has taken steps to ensure something like that does not happen again."
AMC declined to comment.
Maybe this was why Glen Mazzara was fired?

Reminds me of this:

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I was not the first person to notice that.

Yeah, I got a big kick out of that. I'm surprised at the sponsor's reaction, though. Whatever happened to "any publicity is good publicity?"

Maybe only vegetarian food producers should sponsor the show.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Exactly what did these people expect Daryl to do? They acted shocked that he went with Merle. No, they can't have Merle amongst them but seriously....talk about a rock and a hard place.

And they need Daryl now that Rick is taking the road to the hallucinatory funny farm and Glenn is in avenging mode. Herschel's very wise but the poor man being without a leg makes leadership a bit problematic in a post apocalyptic world. They don't know Tyrese well enough. If Andrea were there, she'd try to level things out. She was actually making sense. Merle would try to take over if he were there.

Who's going to step into the power vaccuum while poor Rick is going kuckoo for cocoa puffs? Those visions of Lori aren't helping anything. Even in death, Lori causes problems. Daryl actually would have been the best candidate.

Agreed. I hope they resolve how to handle Daryl because a significant portion of the fans love his character.

I am sure we haven't seen the last of Daryl. My guess is his story arc will be about the true meaning of family, and that it's not as much about who you share blood with, as who you shed blood with.

He's have to figure out who his family is on his own. But will Carol still available when he returns?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Pretty standard episode, actually it was a bit dull in parts I have to say, esp after the mid-season wait for it. Just let Tyresse and Michonne be a part of the team already, I'm getting bored

Part of the problem IMO with the long term sustainability of this show is I'm starting to get the 'rinse repeat,' sense on the plots. People will start to get bored if there isn't more of a mission for the group to complete.

The entire time they were fighting about letting Merle come with them I kept thinking "guys, you're going to a prison - a prison. lock him in a cell when you get there".

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Honestly, I think Rick made the right call when it came to refusing to let Merle back into the group. Five minutes into the rendezvous in the woods and Merle was already stirring up trouble and picking fights with everyone in sight. Let's not forget, there was a reason Rick had to handcuff him to that rooftop in the first place . . . .

And regarding Tyrese's group . . . well, at least two of the newcomers were already plotting to seize control of the prison, so Rick's not entirely wrong in suspecting that these strangers could pose a danger to Carl and the others.

I doubt that Daryl would have considered that an acceptable compromise.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Rick has it tough, no doubt. There's no one wholly right decision or path. Rick's erring on the side of caution, which is completely understandable. Rick's suffering because he still feels and still possesses a conscience. I'm not saying I would let Merle come back either--only that Darryl was caught in an impossible situation. Like him or not, Merle is his brother and he raised him. It's going to be impossible for Daryl to just leave him on the side of the road in a walker infested world without seeing direct evidence of treachery.
TPTB aren't stupid. They're not letting go of Norman Reedus.

I doubt that Daryl would have considered that an acceptable compromise.
No lie. Just putting Merle, the brother of a group member, in a cell is still a security risk. Merle would be working on Daryl 24/7 to let him out.
