So this pissed him off because he basically said the same thing to Daryl about Daryl being Ricks Bitch and that Daryl would have called them all pussies.
Bingo. That's exactly what I was thinking when they were in the car. Michonne played off that really well, but I think she was even surprised when he let her go.
The entire episode you can see him struggling with himself and what he was especially with the interaction with Darryl.
I watched a little bit of the Talking Dead and one of the directors said something really interesting, he said the sad thing is Darryl and the rest of the group will never know what Merle did for them. Basically sacrificing himself for Darryl and the group by evening the odds.
