Our guess is that we'll finally get to see the long over due return of Daryl's older brother Merle Dixon, who was last seen using a hacksaw to sever off his hand, which was handcuffed by Rick to a pipe. Though no one knows exactly what happened to him, it's always been believed that he stole the van that Rick, Glenn, T-Dog and Daryl used to return to Atlanta, and possibly fled the city in it - never to be heard from again...
To further fuel our "cliffhanger" speculation, it has finally been confirmed today that Michael Rooker will appear in the third season of TWD.
During the Lollipop Chainsaw panel at WonderCon - Rooker, who offered his vocal talent to the game, announced to the crowd that his character "Merle Dixon" will indeed be back for the show's third season. While details remained unsurprisingly scant at the moment, the actor did reveal that he lost twenty pounds for his returning role. Interesting...any thoughts on that? Could this have something to do with another character who is described as a twisted psychopath known simply as "The Governor" (David Morrissey) who will also be appearing in season 3?
So what's your verdict? Will Merle make his return at the end of tomorrow night's episode, or will have to wait until next season to see his ugly mug once again?
