Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Lori Grimes (voice)
Amy Harrison (voice)


At the prison, Rick is surprised by a ringing telephone after his rampage against the walkers. The callers won't identify themselves or say where they are other than they are in a very safe place. While Rick comes to terms with his own demons, Daryl, Carl and Oscar go to clear out other areas of the prison. Just when he thinks he's done, Daryl makes an amazing discovery. In Woodbury, the Governor sends Merle and three others to track down and kill Michone. They don't have much luck but Merle comes across Glenn and Maggie who were out looking for baby formula. Meanwhile, the Governor and Andrea become better acquainted. Written by Anonymous

Great Story Telling
30 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Rick continues to struggle following Lori's death, while Glenn and Maggie on a run. Merle and some goons from Woodbury hunt down Michonne, and naive Andrea continues to grow closer to The Governor.

Clearly they're leading up to a confrontation between the group at the prison and Woodbury. Daryl may be conflicted when he sees his brother Merle is still alive.

We also learn more about Daryl's (Norman Reedus) past. We learn that Daryl suffered the tragedy of his mother's death when he was a child. He shares the story with Carl (Chandler Riggs), and it is nice to see them interacting. Daryl is forming attachments in the group and he is not likely to give that up easily. He had already formed a friendship with Carol (Melissa McBride) and was privately mourning her loss.

Andrew Lincoln is superb as Rick. This episode has some great storytelling. So much was going on, but it was all woven together really well. Gripping TV.
