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. Written by

During filming of the scene where Merle Dixon (played by Michael Rooker) is shooting walkers from the roof of the building, civilians on the street heard the sound of the fake rifle and called the police as the thought it was a terrorist attack. SWAT teams were called in. See more
When handing T-dog the handcuff key, Rick Grimes clearly gets blood on his hand after taking the glove off. See more
Hey T-Dog, how's that signal?
Like Dixon's brain: weak.
