Storyline

Rescued from his precarious situation, Rick meets a band of scavengers who have made their way to Atlanta to get supplies for their larger group that lives in a makeshift camp just outside the city. They're trapped in a department store with hundreds of zombies trying to break down the door to at them. Tensions are high and Rick ends up handcuffing one of them, a redneck named Merle Dixon, to keep him from killing someone. They try to escape through the sewers without success and Rick comes up with a clever scheme to draw the zombies away from their location. They have to leave one man behind however.

Trivia

During filming of this episode, when Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) is shooting from the rooftop of the department store, The S.W.A.T. squad of Atlanta were called because people thought he was a sniper. But everything was fine when they were told they were filming. See more »

Goofs

When Rick and the rest of the group are stuck inside the department store they cover themselves with "guts" because the zombies can smell the living. However, in the second season when they are stuck on the freeway, zombies walk right by them while they are hiding under the cars. This is not a goof. In "Guts" when Rick and Glenn cover themselves, they do it to avoid being attacked once seen by walkers. In "What Lies Ahead", when the group hides under the cars, the walkers don't smell them because walkers can't smell any better than the living. See more »

Quotes

Glenn: [while being smeared with zombie guts] Oh, this is bad. This is really bad.
Rick Grimes: Think about something else. Puppies and kittens.
T-Dog: *Dead* puppies and kittens.
[Glenn vomits]

More Intense!
15 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode is Season 1, "Guts" is more intense and more action-packed. The first episode dealt with character development, now the second episode allows more action to come across. I like the name of this episode because it's a very pivotal part of the episode and the name alone will get your guts wrenching.

This episode has Rick banding up with another group of survivors who were scavengers. But they get trapped in a department store that is surrounded by zombies.

Overall, this is a great episode, maybe a little less quality than the first but nonetheless still entertaining. I rate this episode 9/10.
