Rick, Michonne and Carl head off to his hometown police station find more weapons and ammunition. In the town, they come under fire from someone. They knock out their attacker who turns out to be Morgan Jones, the man who saved Rick when Rick left the hospital after first regaining consciousness. Michonne is none too pleased when Rick decides to wait until Morgan comes to. Carl and Michonne go off ostensibly to get Judith a crib but Carl has something else in mind. When Morgan awakens, he's half out of his mind and even after he recognizes Rick, wants nothing more than to die. Rick wants him to join them at the prison. Written by garykmcd

Smaller-Scale, But Still Great!
3 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode of the third season of the Walking Dead and it's one of those filler episodes which are normally called "bottle episodes." This is a smaller-scale, lower-budget episode that mainly focuses on Rick, Carl, and Michonne. This episode reminded me of Breaking Bad's episode, "Fly." We need these kind of episodes to keep the story flowing and for character-building. What I also liked is how we are introduced to a character we haven't seen since Season one.

In this episode, "Clear," Rick, Carl, and Michonne heads out to Rick's former town to pick up guns and ammunition for the upcoming battle. When they arrive, they are shot at by this one man who is knocked unconscious by a bullet from Carl. This man happened to be Morgan Jones, the man who saved Rick's life. But Morgan turned into a lunatic due to some personal trauma. Meanwhile, Carl and Michonne head out to find a crib for the baby.

Overall, this is a great episode. Despite the smaller budget and fewer location spots, this is an emotional episode and while I liked the return of Morgan, I don't know if I can call it a welcome return. This episode also manages some walker action, so that is always good. I rate this episode 9/10.
