This season of The Walking Dead has been hit and miss. Some episodes have been extremely thrilling whereas others have been dull as ever. I feel the first half of season three was well balanced and left us in anticipation, with a cliff hanger. All was well when we found out what happened and moved along. However, this is where the season started to wobble. Some episodes were fully dialogue, others we didn’t see any of Rick’s group, and some others didn’t develop characters well (if at all).
The previous episode was given a 9/10 by my brother. I agree with that score. It was an intense episode with an end to a long time character of the series. The fact that Merle did something for others, and died in the process, was heartfelt. Daryl’s reaction to Merle’s turning was the most emotional part. Does this episode continue with sentimental approach?
