NO WAY! Just finished watching the This Sorrowful Life episode of The Walking Dead. Merle captured Michonne and left the prison to take her to Woodbury. But along the way, something clicked with him and he spared her.
Instead, he took a car and tricked a bunch of walkers into following him. He abandoned the car near to Woodbury and then while the Governor’s men were dealing with the fallout, he started picking them off one by one. Except they eventually worked out what was going on, the Governor beat Merle back into a barn and shot him. But not before munching off two of Merle’s fingers.
Worse still, Daryl went to find him and finally discovered his brother chewing on a fresh corpse. Not content to simply kill his enemy, The Governor made sure to shoot him in the head instead of the chest, ensuring he’d become a zombie. Pure evil.
