Yes, they showed the prison in the distance. I wonder how fast they will get there? Maybe in the end of the first episode.
I guess they think Andrea is dead, I'm sure they will all end up meeting at the prison eventually.
So it's a good guess that we will be seeing Merle next season. I think he probably hooked up with the same people Randall was hanging with.
