Bleepin' Merle. I guarantee it was bleepin' Merle.
Nah, seems unlikely - there were too many to fit in the van, and there was no barrier between the back area and the driver's seat. And you can't really "herd" zombies in a specific direction, because they don't feel fear and will come right after you instead.
Plus for all he knew his brother was still in camp - why send a horde of zombies in his direction?
BTW, who else is really excited to Norman Reedus, better known as Murphy MacManus, playing a predominant role in which he is completely BA and not terrible? Aside from Rick, Daryl is my favorite character.
I like Daryl a lot - he's not nearly as one-note as Merle and seems to be developing a little as a character too. As much face time as he's getting he'll either be a major character for awhile or horribly murdered. Or both.
BTW, I saw this on another site - for pure comedy, check out the website of the actor who plays T-Dog. Make sure speakers are on:www.ironesingleton.com
