Yes, it was him. While it wasn't totally clear to me in the episode itself, the behind the scenes segment on Talking Dead showed that it was indeed him.

It was an engagement ring. Still was a different take on shopping for a ring than I've ever seen though.

I wonder if next week annoying Dad will find a way to blame Tyreese for his son's death. I'd like to see Tyreese kill that ass off.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

If he goes to Woodbury, will he rescue Andrea, and the two are separated from the rest of Rick's group (a slight replay of season two's finale), will they form a bond, setting the stage for Carol to seek romance elsewhere?
Oh God, I hope not. That would be too soapy. No, something nice and subtle for Carol and Daryl. Oddly enough (or maybe not oddly) I can actually see Rick and Michonne becoming lovers at some point in the future when he's finally stopped mourning Lori.

Oh, Merle, Merle, Merle. We barely knew ye. I felt bad for Daryl, anyway. Seeing your big brother in that condition would rip your guts out. So to speak.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Chalk it up as a generational culture thing.

Tonight was a pretty damn good episode. Merle didn't really have much of a plan, which became pretty clear once he got to the meet-up. Seems like just barreling into them (and their cars) would have been more effective if you had already resigned yourself to it being a suicide run.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I thought Merle had some military experience. In an ambush situation, your intended target should be your first shot, so you don't give away your position before achieving your objective. Unless your position is secure and you can complete your mission despite your location being known. His location was far from secure, seeing as a walker managed to draw him out of hiding.

Of course I know this is TV and the villain has to stick around until the end of his arc. But it just made Merle look like a screw up instead of someone with military training.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

After watching the Talking Dead here is what I may have noticed:

- no walkers in the field at the prison or along the fence
- no signs of life at the prison at all

I'm of two minds about this:

a). Rick and Crew left the prison...
b). they left the prison waited outside woodbury for The Governor and his men to leave and then took over Woodbury.

Perhaps they moved the walkers inside the prison o when they open the door to get into the prison the walkers come out and attack the governers men.

I thought it was a good episode as well. However, I am finding my overall excitement for the series starting to diminish a bit.

It starting to become rinse repeat on fight the zombies and have a little emotional drama in between.

The series is going to have to find a better mission for the group than to simply look for shelter every season if it's going to last IMO.

I think that's the natural set-up; the moron is desperate to prove his loyalty / manhood to Phllip, and hates Tyreese, so as I mentioned earlier, he would try the "accident" or "friendly fire" scam to kill Tyreese.

The big question is Tyreese's sister: part of the attack, or left at Woodbury? Aside from Daryl rescuing Andrea, I can see his sister realizing she's in the 21st century version of Jonestown (also recalling Andrea's warning), and making her move. Perhaps they escape, but discover the prison is destroyed and assume the worst has come to pass, going off in a different direction.

Yeah, but the series honchos do not want to run toward the expected--at least not in a telegraphed way. The most unlikely couple of all--bigmouth Andrea and streetwise southern "outlaw" type Daryl--would throw the audience for a loop, even if does not last.

Oh, Merle, Merle, Merle. We barely knew ye. I felt bad for Daryl, anyway. Seeing your big brother in that condition would rip your guts out. So to speak.
Merle was subversive trash, but setting Michonne free, and admitting that he's seen as the devil (having no place among Rick's group--including Daryl) were effective realization moments. If he cannot go back to the realtionship he had with Daryl, he has no reason to live.

I credit the series for breaking the predictable in showing some growth / self-analysis for Merle, which is so rare in "everything is gritty"/one charracter mold TV.

Shane was a self-interested, murderous demon, and could not change, but Merle--the racist, sexist, violent criminal turns a corner before the end, thus the stereotype was melting.

On the other hand, of all of the Rick gang, Glenn is so Maggie-obsessed, will he even appreciate Merle let Michonne go, and actually cut down some of the governor's numbers?

It was creepy for sure. At least he cleaned the ring off first. I wonder if he'll tell her how he got it?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

It seems to me there were only a couple of ways to get it. The most logical one is he took it from someone...we know he didn't pay for it. So whats the difference it was stolen.

My wife was like, what is he doing? I casually said, shopping for an engagement ring... she thought I was loony turns out I was right!
