Okay, so it’s not exactly news now that Michael Rooker is returning for The Walking Dead season 3. How his Merle Dixon character factors back into the story is up for speculation (It’s clear from some previously leaked set pics that he’s rolling with David Morrissey’s The Governor).
But let’s talk about Merle’s hand. The man lost it in season one, so how is he dealing with this? Well, a new set pic answers that.
As you can see, Merle has outfitted his stump with what appears to be a spike or a hook. The former seems more logical in the zombie-killin’ business. One blow to the head and that walker is down for the count.
