    M. C. Gainey (Mr Freindly from Lost) would be a perfect Axel

    • Kevin Fitzpatrick

      He would! The only problem I could see with that is that M.C. Gainey is almost TOO charming and likeable for a character like Axel, to NOT be the center of attention. I certainly hope they keep some of the prisoner characters when the show heads there in the fall.

    I think when the barn finally falls we can see the RV being burnt to a crisp too.

    Either way, RIP Dale's RV.

    • Kevin Fitzpatrick

      You are correct! Poor lil' junker. Just tell us someone kept that stylish hat of his!

  • Dino

    I have a feeling Merle (Daryl's brother) may be at the prison. Maybe even the Governor. Would make for a good plot- especially since he's been jilted by Rick and them and wants to seek some revenge- like cutting off Rick's hand…..

  • Kevin Fitzpatrick

    That's my theory as well! We know Merle won't be the Governor himself, but he could definitely be a "right-hand man" of his, and want revenge on Rick with a hand for a hand! Of course, I'm not sure AMC would go through with that story…

  • lrubin

    I was wondering if possibly there would be some of the older characters from the comics inside the prison- possibly some of the kids or Tyreese and his daughter since they bring up such pivotal moments in the comics. At the same time, I would be disappointed if they replaced the inmates completely, I thought that part of the comic was really amazing!

    • Kevin Fitzpatrick

      I wouldn't be terribly surprised if AMC played around with, or ditched the stories regarding the 4 prison inmates. As for Tyreese, I'm reasonably certain most of his character traits were dumped on T-Dogg (especially after seeing him with a hammer last week), and his daughter mainly served to inform the survivors that people got up after death regardless, which they now already know.

      Still, one would think the survivors at least find SOME people already at the prison.

      • Gringo

        I think the reason for no Tyreese is that Shane was kept alive for too long in AMC. Tyreese became Rick's best friend and his righ-hand man in the comics, but Shane was gone by then. T-Dogg is too much of a wuss to be Tyreese, maybe Deryl is supposed to be him going forward, since he is already hooking up with Carol. He will probably dump Carol for Michonne..
