Yeah, it's much more suspenseful if the walker pops up out of nowhere.
They have used the "walker sounds in the distance, GETTING CLOSER" effect as well. But having a walker sneak up on Merle instead of him hearing it coming is much more of a shock and makes better TV.
It would be cool if they start learning their lessons and use better tactics in the future.
They have been smarter about using knives and spears instead of guns all the time lately though so as not to attract every walking in gunshot hearing range.
When Merle triggered the car alarm, didn't he actually pause with this "Oops?" expression, and then continue trying to hot wire the car? Wouldn't you think "Hmmm....let's back off, hide, and try a different car or perhaps come back with a plan to take out walkers?
Again...I know...drama. And a freakin' cool kill for Michonne with decapitating the walker with wire.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right.
