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

Once Merle gets the hacksaw he could cut the bolt to which the handcuff is locked. This would take only a couple of minutes, or he could cut the chain holding the cuffs together. This would not be as easy but still possible. Instead he chooses to cut his hand off. This would take quite a bit longer than the chain, would be incredibly painful, risk death from blood loss or infection and would permanently disable him in a world where having both hand could be the difference between surviving or not.
