Merle Dixon Gets A Drastic New Look In Season Three Of THE WALKING DEAD

We already know that the racist brother of fan-favourite character Daryl will be back in season three of The Walking Dead, but he'll be returning with...well, it's probably best you take a look for yourselves! Hit the jump to check it out. [SPOILERS AHEAD]

The last time we saw Merle Dixon, he has been left on handcuffed to a roof by Rick Grimes with a group of walkers quickly closing in. The survivors did go back for him, but all that remained was a severed hand. Despite appearing as a figment of Daryl's imagination in season two, fans have been left wondering just when he'll return and what state he will actually be in. Thanks to Walking Dead News, we now know that he'll be returning without a hand, but WITH one nasty looking prosthetic in its place.


This set photo also seems to confirm that Merle will be a part of the Governor's group. Rick and the gang had best watch out! The Walking Dead will return to the small screen this Fall.

The articles title is a spoiler in its own right... :P I know from reading on this site daily that he'll be back (no thanks to articles presented like this), but not everyone knows it...

Merle will be in helicopter that we all saw in the first season and in the second season finale. It will crash in the forests where Rick and the rest of the cast are in.
DanteSparda - 6/12/2012, 5:25 PM
So now Merle Dixon is going to look like Ironman?

thats the one thing i hate about CBM anything walking dead related they love to spoil even in the headlines. everytime theres a WD article on this site its a spoiler i didnt even want to see, i had no idea merle was coming back before i came here, thanks again a holes
ThaReaperAssassin - 6/12/2012, 5:50 PM
I'm glad for the spoilers. They remind me to watch this show and if it's possibly gonna get any better or not. Keep em' comin because without cool details I have little reason to tune in...and when has the show really ever suprised anybody anyway...pretty predictable so let's hope season 3 get f'n crazy.
SeaborneLegend - 6/12/2012, 5:58 PM
@ sexymuppet That's my point! and you make a good one too! it's always with TWD articles that someone posts a spoiler in the headline...
TheMyth - 6/12/2012, 6:14 PM
T-Dog is a dead mofo...

sexymuppet and SeaborneLegend, Wwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!
Eaglesman55 - 6/12/2012, 6:16 PM
Hoo-rah
TheMyth - 6/12/2012, 6:17 PM
That's my response to you when you piss and moan about being spoiled by something on the Internet. If you'd like to start over, perhaps acting like an adult this time around, maybe you'd elicit a better response ;)

Rick'll probably lose his hand...it would be a nice surprise (not nice, but good to keeping with the source material). They've said they will not water down the governor storyline. So if they keep to the comics...Rick will lose a hand, Michonne will get raped by the governor, the governor will lose an eye, hand, and penis because of it, and Lori, Judith, Herschel, Herschel's kid will all be killed by the governor...and we know his storyline will span 2 seasons so the siege will likely take place in season 4.
SeaborneLegend - 6/12/2012, 6:45 PM
@ TheMyth Bit harsh, but ok, buddy! I se your point. But, try seeing mines too before you start something :)

I'm all for seeing Merle again, that guy is bad-a**! and the governors storyline will be amazing!! xD
SamHell - 6/12/2012, 6:59 PM
Not getting the IM comments by you all....i must ve missed somethin

But on the other topic, Ole Merle will be the king dickhead now that shane is gone,,,cant wait for this fall
TheMyth - 6/12/2012, 7:40 PM
Seaborne, I do see your point, but you guys make it in the wrong way. It's like you forget you're on the internet where shit like this lurks around every corner. If ever you get spoiled by something on the internet, especially on a site whose only purpose is the coverage of all things related to comics translating to film, you've none to blame but yourself. Josh could've done a better job trying to hide it, but in his defense Rooker has even publicly stated he'll be back this season. Between that and the fact that as a viewer it should have been obvious it was only a matter of time before he returned, and it isn't really a spoiler at all. The spoiler is in the image, which I won't ruin for you because you could have easily skipped it without examining.

I stumble into spoilers all the time, but I don't complain about it. I could easily avoid major media sites altogether and never be spoiled, but instead I choose to browse.
gastitdk - 6/12/2012, 7:49 PM
Whoa, you call a spoiler the fact that he sports a prosthetic in his arm because he lost his hand?
gastitdk - 6/12/2012, 7:56 PM
It's a little bit obvious, I guess...
eleven59 - 6/12/2012, 8:19 PM
I'm not to excited about the possibility of Rick losing his hand. Tv is a different medium and I just don't think having a major character lose a hand works on tv. See arrested development.

Remember, once it's lost the actor and the character have to keep it lost for the rest of the entire series! On tv, that's not the same as a comic book run...
DaneE5R - 6/12/2012, 8:51 PM
This character was a racist [frick] and an asshole. Frankly, his popularity scares me.
BlazinTexan - 6/12/2012, 8:53 PM
hes popular cause people like the actor not the character
thalidomide - 6/12/2012, 10:20 PM
I bet he will try to convince Daryl that he doesn't belong to Rick's group.
Scion - 6/13/2012, 4:10 AM
From this angle it looks like a fishing pole to me lol
SuperFrost - 6/13/2012, 8:22 AM
T DOgg Gonna Get Shanked!
YogiDonnie - 6/13/2012, 8:29 AM
Are those zombies in the back of that truck? What the heck is he driving around with zombies for?
HeadPool420 - 6/13/2012, 9:06 AM
@greenlanternsF. I was about to post the same thing you said hahaha! Most of the time people see it says spoiler and still look and complain!!!!
ForceOfLegend - 6/13/2012, 9:09 AM
Interesting new look. Agree with everyone....T Dog is dead. Darrel will kill His brother though...
ForceOfLegend - 6/13/2012, 9:10 AM
Daryl*
Mmasoldier - 6/13/2012, 10:16 AM
Who's the governor and can someone give me a brief rundown of the second season? I've been gone for a while on a deployment and wasn't able to watch the second season. Now that I'm looking for it I haven't been able to find it.
