Rather than an episode by episode review, I’m going to focus on the storylines, though I have lots of good things to say about Clear at the end of this review.
The Daryl / Merle storyline:
A bumpy start, but gets on track eventually. As the second half of season 3 opens, Merle & Daryl square off for the Governor’s pleasure. We get to see Merle the survivor, the leader, the big brother. Yet once they make their escape, Merle inexplicably transforms into an obnoxious buffoon who only submits to the will of his little brother–so much so that Rick has no choice but to turn Merle, and thus Daryl, away. Now Darryl is the protector, the big brother, which seems a bit premature for the intended storyline.

I know. I know. I promised another Reynald Tale in January.
Ring of Destiny and Maloch were easy to write. Those stories came flooding out, and by the time I finished Maloch, I already had an idea of what the third book should be. I assumed the next book would be just as easy to write, but my ambitions proved overly optimistic.
After nearly two months of work, I have finally admitted to myself that the story I have for book three is just. Not. Good enough. I want every Reynald Tale to be exciting and fun to write, in the belief that my enthusiasm will translate to my readers. Because you, dear Reader, deserve a fantastic experience!
So I’m starting over. I’ve got a better idea, and I think you’ll like it. Patience, please. If all goes well, the next two books–which are connected to each other–should come quickly.
