Walking Dead Winter Premiere Preview – Is Daryl’s Fate Sealed?

February 10th feels so far away, but apparently AMC doesn’t feel like our wait for The Walking Dead to return is agonizing enough because they have released a trio of video features that are sure to dial up your anticipation o’meter a couple of degrees. Watch, and then we’ll discuss.

First of all, Steven Yeun isn’t British?  Okay AMC said this video contained spoilers, I think it’s more like ‘tonal’ spoilers;  after watching we have a better sense of where the characters are going emotionally, but not what events will transpire.   (Also, is it just me or does David Alpert not age?  LOST fans know what I’m talking about.)

What I found particularly interesting was the notion that Rick was being built up as a sort of mirror image of The Governor;  two men who have seen their humanity crack and crumble away as they go to what ever length necessary to protect their people.  Could this mean that Rick may yet go to deeper extremes in the developing skirmish with The Prison and Woodbury?  If The Governor attacks The Prison, would Rick consider an apropos response to the citizens of Woodbury? Maybe this video holds a hint or two:

Looks like this 30 second trailer for the second half of The Walking Dead‘s third season has more spoilers than the previous clip.  Right from the opening scene we can get a sense of Daryl and Merle’s fate.  It appears to be the same common area that The Governor was addressing the Woodbury populace from in the finale, but filled with smoke.  Didn’t Rick’s group use smoke grenades?  No I’m not suggesting Rick came back for Daryl, it’s more likely that The Governor set the situation up to make Daryl believe that Merle has been excommunicated so that he can get inside The Prison and wreak havoc.

One thing I want to know is this:  can Merle be rehabilitated? The suggestion that Merle is a little more of a jerk than Daryl has been there from the beginning, but Daryl wasn’t exactly Joe-Average when the series started out, and look at him now; Rick’s right hand man.  Then there is the opposite of this conundrum:  can Daryl be turned against Rick?  Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.  In the meantime, here’s a full minute from the winter premiere of The Walking Dead, “The Suicide King”, airing February 10th on AMC.
