A few days ago a photo revealed that a familiar face of AMC’s The Walking Dead would be back in the third season and he would be more than just a dream. Everyone’s favorite racist asshole, Merle (Michael Rooker), was seen on set and the newest screenshot allows us to see what he’s done with his missing hand.
The picture, courtesy of Spoiler TV, shows Merle’s hand replacement, some type of hook that would work perfectly for killing zombies. There aren’t many details on Rooker’s return to the series, probably because it is supposed to be a secret, but audiences can guess that Merle will most likely be a part of the Governor’s entourage.
Ah, I can’t wait for the life-altering decisions that Darryl will be forced to make when he is reunited with his brother and must decide to fight with him or his new friends.
A Walking Dead marathon will air on July 7 and 8, re-airing all 19 episodes from the first two seasons and re-broadcasting the pilot episode in black and white, for a comic-book feel. The marathon event will include season 3 teasers and be followed by a brand new episode of The Talking Dead, which will air more scoop on the upcoming season.
Are you excited about Merle’s return?
