Will Merle Dixon return?

Earlier this week, AMC unveiled the first three minutes of "Nebraska," the midseason premiere of "The Walking Dead."

And with "Nebraska" just over a week away from airing, AMC has released a teaser trailer for the rest of the season; which depicts part of the aftermath of the barn incident, undead jeopardy for Carol (Melissa Suzanne McBride) and Andrea (Laurie Holden), tension between Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and a standoff between Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and someone he calls "brother." Of course, that's only going to lead to speculation that Michael Rooker will reprise his role as Merle Dixon…

It also looks like the zombie population around the farm is about to significantly increase.


Michael Raymond-James ("Terriers") and Aaron Munoz ("Cadillac Records") will make their "Walking Dead" debuts in the eighth episode as Dave and Tony, two new survivors who run into Rick and Hershel (Scott Wilson).


SpoilerTV has also revealed synopsis for the final five episodes of the year; which offer new glimpses of what's to come. If you want to remain unspoiled, stop reading now.
