Episode cast overview, first billed only:
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

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. Merle is stupid, but he isn't THAT stupid. See more »

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. Take it up the damn chain of command or you can kiss my lily-white ass.
Merle Dixon: [Merle laughs] That's right. That's what I said. You heard me. And then this idiot, he takes a swing, You know, and well...

Character Building Episode
18 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After two action packed episodes, we get a more character driven episode. There is a lovely scene when Rick arrives at the camp. Lincoln has already shown he can be tough, here he is vulnerable.

We get a better look at the people in the camp, we get new characters such as The timid Carol, her abusive husband Ed and their daughter Sophia. We also get introduced to Merle's brother Daryl Dixon (who seems to be as hot headed as his brother) and we see Morales has a family too. Characters like Dale and Carol clearly are good people, and we see Ed is the rotten apple of the group, whilst Daryl is understandably furious about what has happened to his brother.

Lincoln is still the top performer, Jon Bernthall is given more to do as Shane here and Jeffrey DeMunn shines as Dale, while Daryl's anguish at the end of the episode was great, well done Norman Redus.

One of my problems with the cast is Sarah Wayne Callies. I didn't like her in performance in "Prison Break" and again, I find her unlikeable again here too.
