The Walking Dead saw a major character's death tonight on episode 315, "This Sorrowful Life."
Merle Dixon stood revealed as a zombie with brother, Daryl, discovering him eating a mid-day's snack.
Merle was going to do what no one else could do at the prison, bring Michonne to the Governor, but the Dixon brother had a change of heart at the last moment.
As he freed Michonne, Merle had one last thing he had to do, and that was lay a surprise attack against the Governor and his goons.
However, in doing so, sealed the fate of Merle Dixon.
Here's the first look at Michael Rooker as Merle Dixon as a zombie walker in The Walking Dead.
