4. Rick Has a Change of Heart (Episode 15, 'This Sorrowful Life')

After his meet-cute with the Governor, Rick has a lot to consider. The Governor promised he'd call off his impending war on the Prison Gang if only Rick were to turn over Michonne. Rick confides in Hershel and lies to his people, trying desperately to concoct a plan to deliver Michonne straight into the heart of evil. Merle, who knows the Governor better than anyone, cautions Rick that there is no way the Gov is going to hold up his end of the bargain. But Rick is determined to protect his family at any cost, and he convinces himself to be a bad guy and hand over Michonne, even though she's saved everyone's lives at least once so far. Merle warns that they'll need wire instead of rope to restrain the katana-wielding warrior, and Rick heads outside to scavenge supplies. As he winds an Ethernet cable around his wrist, he sees another vision of Ghost Lori – and this time she's pregnant and dressed in her casual, zombpocalypse clothes. Rick experiences an epiphany and rushes inside to announce that he's changed his mind. Too bad the news doesn't make it all the way to Merle in time.
