"The Walking Dead" finale will be "explosive," according to series star Norman Reedus.
In "The Sorrowful Life," the penultimate episode of "The Walking Dead" Season 3, Reedus' character Daryl Dixon was forced to put down his brother, Merle (Michael Rooker) after the Governor killed him and left him to turn into a zombie.
"Everyone is furious. Daryl has come back and he's furious, Michonne is furious, Glenn and Maggie are pissed," Reedus told The Hollywood Reporter. "We fought hard to get that prison, and we don't want anybody telling us what to do, and it's become very personal for everyone. That's what the finale is about; everybody's toes have been crushed and everyone is ready to rip each other apart."
The Governor (David Morrisey) has wreaked havoc on Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of zombie apocalypse survivors, more so than the zombies they've been fighting to escape. He has sexually, physically and mentally assaulted various members of the prison group and is showing no signs of stopping.
"He’s offended everyone on a super personal level," Reedus said told EW.
The death of Merle Dixon won't be the only big one for the second half of Season 3. The show has already killed off main characters Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) and T-Dog (IronE Singleton) in the first half of the season, but the bloodshed will not stop.
"It's a full-blown war," Reedus told THR of the finale. "You have two herds of wild animals charging at each other and everyone has guns, knives and explosives ... People will definitely die."
"The Walking Dead" Season 3 finale airs Sunday, March 31 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
