Morales (as Juan Pareja)


Rick and his newfound friends return to their camp where he is reunited with this wife Lori and his son Carl. She's very happy to see her husband alive and well but is more than a bit angry at Shane Walsh, Rick's police partner, who told her he was dead. The returnees also have to tell Merle Dixon's brother Daryl that they had to leave him behind. Rick is feeling some guilt over that and decides he's going to return to Atlanta to rescue him. What they find when they get there is not what they expected. Back at the camp, Shane takes out his frustrations on one of the men who has been physically abusing his wife. Written by garykmcd

Merle Dixon: [Merle sits alone cuffed to the rooftop as he begins talking to himself deliriously] That's right. You heard me, bitch. You got a problem? Bring it on if you're man enough, Or take it up the chain if you're a pussy. You heard me, you pussy-ass noncom bitch. You ain't deaf.

Reunion and Despair
8 October 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rick and the survivors return to the camp and he meets his wife Lori and his son Carl. Lori does not tell him about her affair with Shane and is upset and angry with Shane, since he told her that Rick was dead. The survivors have to face Merle's brother Daryl Dixon, who is also a violent man, to tell him that his brother was left behind. Rick decides to return to Atlanta to rescue Merle and his bag of arms and ammunition with Daryl, Glenn and T-Dog. However, when they reach the rooftop, they only find Merle's hand.

"Tell It to the Frogs" is a dramatic episode of "Walking Dead". Lori's embarrassment with the return of her husband that was presumed dead and Merle's despair are very dramatic situation. Shane is emotionally lost and frustrated with the arrival of his best friend and husband of the woman that he loves. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Tell It to the Frogs" (1.3)

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