I'll spend five seasons in the prison so long as more stuff dies in the most egregiously messed up ways possible.
A return by Merle would be awesp,e especially since Daryl's character essentially evolved into a despicably cliched version of Sawyer from LOST. Merle's return would give Daryl a kick start I'm sure.
Also, the single best part of last season aside from the final episode was when they met the Walking Dead version of "the others". Any time you can add danger from sources outside of just zombies you are creating something fresh and exciting. Merle would bring that in every way possible. He would not only jack up the drama and intensity but frankly the character and actor quality as well. All pluses in my books.
Also, if Merle is back does he have a hook for a hand? Does he go Evil Dead 2 on us with a chainsaw? The possibilities are endless.
