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

In this episode, we somewhat controversially see a zombie use a rock to break a glass door and one is also able to scale a wire fence (while in the pilot episode, one tried to open a door). With the change of showrunners over the following seasons, the "walkers" have become more traditionally inert and are incapable of such thought-driven actions. See more
