Last Sunday's The Walking Dead revealed the Governor's plans to deal with Rick, Michonne and the prison group. On "This Sorrowful Life," Rick and the prison group have to make a decision. Do they hand over Michonne and hope the Governor keeps his word? Or, do they stay and fight or run away to protect her?

Spoiler alert: This article contains The Walking Dead spoilers and clips

Relationships within the prison have become complicated with the arrival of Merle. He's not trusted for good reasons, but he's a fighter and can help them defeat the Governor. Does Merle deserve to be allowed back into the fold? Or, have his actions made him irredeemable?

An even bigger decision facing the group is whether to stay and fight or leave and find a new home. Will Rick be able to lead them through this difficult time?

Check out the promo for "This Sorrowful Life."


Highlights from the trailer:

  • "If we give the Governor, Michonne, Woodbury stands down." -- Rick.
  • "Can't do things without people any more." -- Daryl
    "Your people look at me like I'm the devil." -- Merle
  • "Are you with us?" Carol asks
  • "We can stay and we fight. Or we can go." -- Rick

Daryl talks to Glenn about Merle. He asks if Merle apologized yet because his brother is sorry for what happened in Woodbury. They want to make it right. Glenn says if it was just about him, maybe he could. He cares more about Maggie than about himself. 


Merle tells Rick that the Governor won't kill Michonne, instead he'll just "do things to her." Take her eyes. "You're cold as ice, Officer Friendly."

From this clip alone, it's difficult to know if Rick is considering giving up Michonne or not. And, is Merle saying this about the Governor because he agrees with sacrificing Michonne for the group or does he want to fight. Either way, it's going to be a tough call to make.


The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on AMC.
