3. The Return of the Prodigal Daryl (Episode 10, 'Home')
So Daryl chooses blood over water and heads off to seek survival with his brother Merle. However, his older brother is not the man Daryl wants him to be, and our favorite crossbow enthusiast realizes he belongs with the Prison Gang. While Rick is chasing ghosts, and zombies are seeping into the prison through breaches in the walls, the Governor and his men open fire on our friends. Rick is trapped on the outside of the prison yard, separated from his people by several hundred feet and several dozen zombies that the Governor's henchmen unleashed from a cargo truck. How will our fearless crazytown leader ever survive? At the last minute, Daryl and Merle emerge from the woods to save Rick from certain zombie death. Welcome back, Daryl! And, uh, please try to get along with your new housemates, Merle.
