"The Walking Dead': Meet Milton! ...Dallas Roberts talks about his mysterious character. The midseason finale of The Walking Dead airs tonight, wrapping up an eight-episode sequence that introduced viewers to the wonderful and terrifying community known as Woodbury, a lovable all-American town with some deep dark secrets. Most of those secrets involve Milton, a bespectacled mystery man played by Dallas Roberts who is performing experiments on the undead. We got a look at one of those experiments last week, although it’s still unclear what the ultimate purpose of Milton’s work is. (Probably nefarious.) In a video interview with EW, Roberts himself offers some stray thoughts about the character. We couldn’t get him to say definitively that someone will die in the midseason finale. But presumably, there will be zombies.} .......Video interveiw...

I found this compilation video on Youtube; I thought it was extremely well-done. (And for those who are up-to-date on the Walking Dead series, there are no spoilers).

I really appreciate the fair treatment the makers give to redneck Daryl.

I'm wondering about what the reunion with brother Merle is going to be like. Merle seems the same; but, I think Daryl has changed -- in a good way. I also think that Daryl has related to Rick as a brother, so, where will his loyalties lie?

I think Merle’s days are numbered no matter what. The governor is pretty suspicious of him now.

The Governor is kind of suspicious of everyone who isn’t in Woodbury. If they are going to follow the book, then the Guv’s days are also numbered. Then again, in a zombie apocalypse, aren’t everybody’s days numbered?

That's only because they can live out their most feverish leftwing fantasies with Merle - making him cartoonishly racist and bloodthirsty. If Merle didn't exist, they'd have to make Daryl the bitter clinger.

When the governor finds out that Michonne is alive, Merle is finished.

That is what I was thinking the same. The gov is Obama, everything perfect in lalaland. God I love a sheriff that can kick ass, and Rick is my man. I love that crossbow that Daryl has. Do those type of crossbow that Daryl exists?

That is a racist remark - I'm going to report you as soon as I find out who to report to. Do I call the White House direct? /s

One of the big changes this season is how Carl has grown from the child in previous seasons to being one of the more mature members of the group.

It is a sad commentary that a child has to grow up that fast, but in that world, one has to in order to survive.

I was thinking that myself and would even be OK following him if need be.

Carl does what needs to be done without hesitation.

Okay...THAT was one of the grossest, most difficult to watch things I have seen on TV!

I’m really getting sick of Andrea. If she doesn’t wake up pretty quickly, she can be walker meat as far as I’m concerned.

At least Carl won’t end up a pampered, spoiled megabrat who thinks the world revolves around him, and who will live in his parents’ basement until he’s 40.

“The governor is minus one eye.”
“Okay...THAT was one of the grossest, most difficult to watch things I have seen on TV!”

Just wait until you have cataract surgery. You are not totaly asleep and you know he is cutting your eye and digging around in there. I tried to watch cataract surgery on Utube to see what it’s like before I had it done, and I stopped the film when the doctor took a needle, stuck it in the key and was digging around with the needle. I couldn’t watch it any more. Don’t watch that if you ever have that surgery. Both mine were done and I’m glad that’s over.

I didn’t like the way she looked at Michonne when they stood off with sword and pistol in the govenror’s room.

Hated it!

Michonne has become one of my favorite characters. Took me while to warm to her, because she is stone, but now I love her.

From previews of the next episode, it would seem as if Andrea begins to wisen up, but wow...she is blind at this current time ><

My wife and I have never missed an episode. Tonight’s mid-season finale was outstanding!

We just hate the fact there’s a mid-season finale at all. That 2-3 month break sucks! Wish they would have just written episodes to fill that time gap.

Maybe the Guv will stage a zombie cage fight between Darryl and Merle.

Seriously, how long does it take her? Heads in a fish tank, zombie daughter kept in a cage-—this is the guy you want for your boyfriend?

I couldn’t take that “What have you done?” to Michonne. Has Andrea forgotten she owes her life to the woman?

Agree about Michonne. I was initially hesitant about her character; not having read the comics, I didn’t want some superhero-type person in the show. But I love her AND her attitude.

Boy, did you call it right. Although, I think the Governor started having second thoughts about Merle's "loyalty" when Merle asked to leave to find his brother. The Gov didn't seem to like the "competition" of Merle having someone other than him (Gov) that he felt loyalty for. So, now what? Since you read it so right before, what do you think will happen between Merle and Daryl? Will they fight, or will they both team up against the Governor?

This is a preview of the next episode when the show starts up again. Andrea seems to have woken up to what the Governor is actually like; at least, it seems so in this clip.

I think they will both be rescued and Merle will get his last chance at redemption at the prison but will die there defending the prison from the citizens of Woodbury.

He’ll never be a truly good guy but will die somewhat of a hero in the eyes of Daryl.

I really hope she has. I’d like to see her rejoin the group. They could use her shooting arm.

I’ve never seen Daryl look as scared as he does in that arena. Thanks for the clip, LL.
