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

Another episode of The Walking Dead, and story seems to be evolving. We didn't really see much of the walkers, but character depth and story arc rescues this situation.

Merle, accidentally stranded by T-Dog, tries to break free. Meanwhile at the camp his brother Daryl heard the news, and group once again gets on the road to find Merle.

Rick finally reunites with his family, much to Shane's dismay. Rick soon goes back to city with group, to find radio equipment and bag of guns.

The group is shown, the relationships, and characters. Ed is constantly harassing and beating his wife, but he will soon regret that.

Group gets to the city, and they make a shocking discovery.

Overall, another strong episode of this show. Story seems flowing, and it surprises me in some parts. The characters are strong, and the relationship between the group is complicated.(but its a good thing.)

My vote is 8/10
