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

Legendary songwriter Craig Wilde (Craig Braginsky on IMDb) did a walk on as a zombie. It is the 4th time he has played an uncredited zombie. 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 »

One Left Behind
8 October 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rick is guided by Glenn that rescues him. They head to a department store where they meet a group of survivors that has come to Atlanta to seek supplies. They advise that Rick brought the attention of the geeks (zombies) and now they are trapped inside the building under siege of many walkers that are trying to break in the department store.

They stay on the roof and the violent racist Merle Dixon wastes ammunition and hits the survivor T-Dog. Rick controls the situation and handcuffs Merle on the support of a piping. Rick learns that the zombies are attracted by sound and the human smell, so he tears the walker into pieces and uses his guts to cover the overcoat and gloves that Glenn and he are wearing. They deceive the zombies and get a truck to bring the survivors back to their camp. But Merle Dixon is left behind.

"Guts" is another engaging episode of "The walking Dead". The redneck and racist Merle Dixon is a despicable character, but I felt sorry for him in the end of the show when he is left behind. Like in the pilot, the plot is very well constructed through a good story, great performances and stunning special effects. The romance between Rick's best friend and his wife will certainly bring serious consequences when Rick meets Lori in the camp. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Guts" (1.2)

Note: On 08 April 2016, I saw this show again.
