Yeah, i agree with you there. I can do without Merle. I think his brother (Daryl) is straight without him. Honestly, I think he came to terms that he may not even see his brother again especially considering that they have started to make there way from their original campsite.
No disrespect to T-Dogg, but the guy has been pretty useless and it didn't really sit straight with me when he was suggesting to bail out on everyone with the old man. I think the old guy is a really solid character as well. He's very smart and considerate of others despite the situation at hand (ie: prolonging the fixing of the hose for the RV in order to kind of force everyone to continue the search for the little girl)
**BTW have you guys made a rule about spoilers? Do i need to add the spoiler tags?
When discussing things in the most recently aired episode it is not neccasary to use spoiler tags when in a discussion thread about THAT show. However, if you're discussing this show in another thread, do the forum a favor and use spoiler tags.
If somebody is stupid enough to come in a thread about the latest episode after it has already aired, without having seen the episode, they deserve to be spoiled. Now if you hear something about a future episode or something about the comics, anything that the show hasn't aired yet, obviously that is generally to be wrapped in spoiler tags.
