Quotes

Rick Grimes: [to Michonne] Hey, do you know Andrea?
Merle Dixon: Yep, she does. Her and blondie spent all winter cuddling up in the forest. Mm-mmm-mmm. Yeah. My Nubian queen here had two pet walkers. No arms, cut off the jaws, kept them in chains. Kind of ironic now that I think about it.

The Magnificent Return of The Walking Dead
12 February 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Governor forces Daryl and Merle to fight against each other; however Rick and Maggie help them to escape from Woodbury and Andrea realizes that The Governor had lied to her. When Rick, Maggie and Daryl meet Glenn and Michonne outside Woodbury, they do not accept that Merle joins their group, but Daryl decides to stay with his older brother.

Meanwhile in the prison, Hershel gives medical assistance to Tyreese's group but he warns that his group is larger and it is not up to him to decide whether they can stay or not with them in the prison. Back to Woodbury, people are panicking and some of them want to leave the town. However The Governor does not take any attitude towards the situation. Andrea assumes her leadership to calm down the dwellers. When Rick returns to the prison, he decides the fate of Tyreese's group against the will of Hershel but shows signs of insanity.

After all these months without The Walking Dead, the return of this series could not be better. "The Suicide King" is emotionally powerful, with Merle disturbing Rick and his group; the relationship of Glenn and Maggie affected; and Carol missing Daryl. I will also miss Daryl, who is one of my favorite characters. Rick seems to be insane and The Governor is apparently more dangerous than ever. I would like to thank Fox-HD (Brazil) that presented the episode without any commercial break. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "The Suicide King"

Note: On 11 April 2016, I saw this show again.
