AMC The Walking Dead episode 3


Sunday night I watched episode 3 of AMC's The Walking Dead series and thought it was another good episode. Not a lot of action but more of getting to know the characters a bit more.

*Spoiler Alert* Don't read on if you haven't seen episode 3 yet. Here's a quick summary of this week's episode: Rick finally meets up with his family; Merle, the racist, is still handcuffed on the roof; Merle's brother returns to the camp and is pissed that his brother was left on the roof; Rick and three others go to try and save Merle; we find out that Shane told Rick's wife that Rick was dead, so Rick's wife isn't really a cheater after all; besides a racist in the series we now have a wife beater named Ed and Shane beats him up after Ed assaults his wife; the four who went to find Merle get to the roof and get the chains off the door to only find a hand on the roof and no Merle.

So the question is did Merle cut off his own hand to escape? Was that Merle's hand? Some pointed out in episode 3's comments that there wasn't any blood on the ground so it could have been a geek's hand (geeks are considered zombies in this series, yeah I don't get that either). But whose hand would it be if it wasn't Merle's hand? The door was still chained so it had to be Merle's hand. Maybe the producer or whoever forget to add blood on the ground? If Merle did saw off his own hand, where did he go? Did he jump off the roof and commit suicide? It would be tough to climb down with only one hand. Was there a fire escape? I guess we'll find out in the next episode.

If you're looking for The Walking Dead items for holiday gifts or just to buy, Amazon.com has tons of stuff, from the books to ordering Season One on DVD (see above), although the DVD is not available yet at the moment.

In the preview for next week's episode, it looks like the four who went to search for Merle run into other survivors but they don't look friendly. I'll see if I can find the preview video for next week's episode.

Here's a sneak peak video from Episode 4 named "Vatos"
