The episode begins with Rick and team contemplating what their next move should be. Merle feels that they should all have made a run for it during the night, because he is sure the Governor shall return with reinforcements to get them. Rick on his part doesn’t think it’s a good idea and he instead feels they should stay put. Merle is baffled by this decision of Rick’s. He makes his displeasure known, because he feels staying put would be nothing short of suicide. He also says that all their lives depend on Rick and the decision that he makes, he therefore tells Rick to get his act together. Rick though, isn’t really interested in what Merle has to say, because his mind still isn’t in its right place. ..Read the full recap
