Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Andrea (credit only)


Rick's resolve weakens and he decides to let the Governor have Michonne in exchange for peace. He tells Daryl, Merle and Herschel about what he's decided. Merle doubts that Rick has the gumption to go through with it - he's right as Rick changes his mind again - and so kidnaps Michonne to take her to the Governor and see if he can make things right. On their trip there, she has a few choice words for him that cause him to reflect on what he is doing. At the prison, Rick decides on a different approach to leading the group. Written by garykmcd

A powerful episode
24 March 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This week was an episode that totally caught me off guard. It was a Merle episode. A character none of us fully understood. The episode is full of surprises and many twists that will have you at the edge of your seat.

We are given the perspective of Merle and the show succeeds in having our sympathy. Merle becomes a character that we will remember.

The great thing about this show is the ability to make any character, a great one. This episode shows us that he still had some good in him. The reason why Daryl always sympathized his brother is because he knew how he really was, and we are shown that side as well.

A powerful episode that makes you realize that all along we had misjudged a fallen character.
