I honestly did not think that Merle’s death would hurt this much. I’m sure it’s mostly due to the fact that it was Daryl that had to but him down but still. In the final parts of the episode Merle was starting to redeem himself. He actually put himself in danger for the good of the group, for the good of his baby brother. I’m still kind of in shock and seeing Daryl cry like that, yeah AMC, that was not okay.
Props to Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus for that extremely emotional scene.
