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

Morgan Jones: Is that where your wife died? Just go. Don't go back. Don't stop. Just get yourself some more time.
Rick Grimes: Look, I can help you. You can come back with us. You can heal.
Morgan Jones: You're taking a lot of guns, Rick. No, I'm just saying that that all is a lot of guns. Why do you need the guns, Rick? 'Cause if you got something good, that just means that someone wants to take it. And that is what is happening, right?

Best episode since the pilot!
4 March 2013 | by joe-marley1See all my reviews

Wow. This episode is excellent from start to finish. It's normally the "big zombie battle" episodes that get remembered in TWD but this one ranks even higher.

Just having Rick, Michonne and Carl going out on a trip was a great move, as it allowed for great characterisation. And the return of Morgan! What a guy he is, and i'm sure i'm not the only one eagerly anticipating his return since the pilot. He's portrayed brilliantly in this episode, showing just how far the circumstances can effect the characters. With Rick seeing Morgans condition, it might make him realise what he could become, given his latest "hallucinating/crazy antics". Meanwhile I also loved Carl and Michonnes mission to retrieve a personal item for Carl in a zombie infested bar. It made for tense, gripping viewing and allowed the two characters to bond for the first time since Michonnes arrival. On the subject, this was a great episode for Michonne! We have finally got to see her involved in actual conversations, along with her bad-ass sword killing.

In conclusion, what an episode! More like this please TWD! 10/10.
