Storyline

Rescued from his precarious situation, Rick meets a band of scavengers who have made their way to Atlanta to get supplies for their larger group that lives in a makeshift camp just outside the city. They're trapped in a department store with hundreds of zombies trying to break down the door to at them. Tensions are high and Rick ends up handcuffing one of them, a redneck named Merle Dixon, to keep him from killing someone. They try to escape through the sewers without success and Rick comes up with a clever scheme to draw the zombies away from their location. They have to leave one man behind however.

Trivia

In the comic books, it's only Rick and Glenn who escape the department store. The other supporting characters like Andrea aren't introduced until they make camp. This was changed as they wanted to introduce some of the important characters earlier as the season was only running for 6 episodes. See more »

Goofs

When Rick is in the tank and states that he has a Beretta with one "clip", he should refer to it as a magazine. Pistols do not usually have "Clips". See more »

This is where it really starts...
20 October 2012 | by jackstarr777See all my reviews

After an ever-so-slightly disappointing first episode, this one was much better and got me into the series much more. Whilst the first episode was slow and somewhat dull, despite having a brilliant atmosphere, this second episode seriously picks up the pace, making things far more interesting and enjoyable.

Situations become far more intense with more action and more interesting plot devices, great camera work and the introduction of some very interesting new characters. We get to know Rick a little better, too, advancing the series furthermore.

Seeing this second episode has got me very excited for the rest of the series, and I am very much looking forward to episode three.

9.8/10
