New WALKING DEAD Set Photos Featuring Andrea, Michonne & The Return Of Merle!

Woodbury on guard. Could one of them be Martinez?

Michonne behind the Governor's house!

Michonne and Andrea in Woodbury. Could they found Woodbury before Rick does?

Looks like someone is in the Governor's Truck. They could be going somewhere important.

Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) Is Back!

Well I'm damn glad to have Michael Rooker back. Hopefully this time he isn't just a figment of Daryl's imagination. A bit of speculating, but if we assume that Merle is "real" and we know these photos are from the Woodbury set (The Governor's home), then we could deduce that he is part of The Governor's clan.

In season one Rick has to leave Merle handcuffed on the roof of a building, and when he returns for him it's clear that Merle had caught off his own hand to escape. Merle may want an eye for eye so to speak. If you've read the comics you'll know Rick is missing his (hand). It would be pretty interesting if Merle is the one that inflicted physical harm upon Rick, and not The Governor, like in the comics.

The Walking Dead returns for a third season in the fall and will air Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC. The show stars: Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, and Melissa Suzanne McBride.

I hope he's alive as a big supprise

This was confirmed a few months ago that Rooker was returning
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 6/9/2012, 7:26 PM
Had to scroll down without looking just to comment. God, it's hard for me to not look at it. Ugh!!! Nope, I'll wait 'till it comes back. Yep..............Ugh!! Anticipation. :P

Not really a spoiler if you think about it. I knew it when they had Merle cut off his own hand and escaped with his fate unresolved that he'd either be the Governor or one of his pals and was gonna take Ricks hand. I don't know if they'll do that though, it would be hard to work with in the show.

Marvel87, naaa, how the hell could he do that lol he's not a [frick]in necromancer. He would've had to go through a great deal of trouble and stealth to guide that many walkers directly through the campsite, and to do it alone while severely wounded and without getting caught by the walkers or seen by the survivors would be impossible, too far a stretch. An attack was imminent as it shows out to be with any settlement they establish. Even at the prison, dozens would arrive at the outer fences daily in the book and it became a real concern that eventually enough would gather to topple sections of the fencing. The walker that comes up before Daryl was foreshadowing, their presence is attracting walkers.

PatientZero, the spoiler warning should be dropped altogether as Rooker already announced he'd be back as Merle. It's public knowledge. The article was recently edited too as it didn't say that shit before. Regardless, since that was in the title and description it should have been assumed that some other spoiler was likely... and you clicked the link anyway. Don't want spoilers? GTFO the internet dude... shit. The largest source of information and temptation on the planet and you wanna bitch that something got spoiled for you while browsing it... SURPRISE!!!
TheMyth - 6/9/2012, 10:06 PM
You mean in the way you ignored my comment? ;) You still... clicked... the... link. AND you came back to check if anyone responded to your comment. You were primed and ready for confrontation, and I gave it to you. Your welcome for giving you something to do on a Saturday night.

I don't consider it a huge spoiler that Merle would be coming back this season, but hahaha that is correct the "spoiler" tag is completely freaking wasted. Like, what was the point?
Jollem - 6/10/2012, 1:45 AM
@zero - nobody's fault but your own:)

You didn't have the spoiler in the article title and now it's there, wtf lol? Man you're gonna piss off a lot of people tomorrow haha.

just picked up volume 1 yesterday for the wifey she said the show does a really good job at staying close to the material!
Starlight - 6/10/2012, 7:28 AM
So, the woodbur story will go along with the prision in seson 3? Shouldn't the city be introduced around the END of the season? There should be enough stories in the prison for occupying MOST of the season, right?
Blitzed - 6/10/2012, 7:38 AM
Thanks for putting 'Spolier' after the the spoiler you have in bold print in your [frick]ing headline! [frick] you and this [frick]ing website you dumb inconsiderate [frick]!

How many [frick]ing things are you going to ruin for me before I stop coming here, for [frick] sakes. I must be a massicist.
eleven59 - 6/10/2012, 8:12 AM
It's going to be tough to have the. On the road all the time. It's a tv show and the natural thing to do is find shelter and hole up as long as you can... I expect there to be a lot of prison in this season
TheHydraTakeover - 6/10/2012, 9:56 AM

People like you make me wish there was a thumbs down when someone's comment sucks. And how could you miss the big, bold, SPOILERS in the description. That's the first thing I saw.
PersonaPostOvo - 6/10/2012, 10:03 AM
Merle will be in helicopter that we all saw and Rick saw. It will crash near the forests that Rick and his group are in.
Mmasoldier - 6/10/2012, 12:08 PM
Great show..... Just got back from being deployed so I haven't got to see the second season. Can't wait for the third.
NosferatuZodd - 6/10/2012, 12:17 PM
Great....finally bring Merle back just so Michonne can kick his ass or kill him. im sure either of those are gonna happen.
TheMyth - 6/10/2012, 1:59 PM
Marvel87, I'll give ya that, it's not outside the realm of possibility, but it seems like a lot of trouble not too mention... I dunno if you've read the books or not but it just doesn't seem like Kirkman's style at all.

PatientZero, hmmm, looks like I'm not alone in thinking you're acting like a baby. Like I said, you just wanted confrontation and to bitch, that's all.

"The actor announced it publicly. it's not a spoiler when it's public knowledge."

"if you didn't read it you haven't been following the walking dead news so tough luck. the spoilers were for the captions."

"public knowledge can't be a spoiler. sorry that's just how it works. now stop harassing me."

Thats the answer i get from nailbiter111 who posted this article. What a crock!
Blitzed - 6/10/2012, 3:46 PM
@Pillowbitter111 all spoilers are public knowledge to those who choose to read it you stupid [frick]!

@nld3 I've said before that this membership probably has the lowest collective IQs on the web but this Nailbitter111 retard takes the cake. So I guess he's suggesting that the day a movie releases everything that occurs in that movie is no longer a considered a spoiler since its now 'public knowledge'?! What a [frick]ing retard.

You don't post spoilers in the [frick]ing headlines, it's as simple as that. Doing so should be a permanent ban in my opinion. Go [frick] yourself Nailbitter111
nld3 - 6/10/2012, 6:12 PM

Don't email him about it he considers it harassment.
macfint - 6/10/2012, 6:50 PM
yeah. spoilers like in the title. I'm supposed to see a TWD story and not look at the title? I would have liked to have been surprised about Merle.
Mmasoldier - 6/10/2012, 10:03 PM
Does anyone know where I can find the second season on DVD or if it's on demand or anything of that nature? Can someone fill me in a little on the second season?
