18. Rick Bites Joe

Talk about Rick being a monster in this scene. But, a good monster. We hated Joe (Jeff Kober), the leader of a group of complete savages that Daryl found his way into. Daryl tries to escape him and make it back to Rick’s group. While this is happening, Joe ambushes him, along with Rick, Michonne, and Carl. Joe is threatening to kill Daryl and Rick, and have his way with Michonne and Carl:

"“See now that’s right. It’s not some damn lie. Look we can settle this, we’re reasonable men. First we’re gonna beat Daryl to death, then we’ll have the girl, then the boy, then I’m gonna shoot you and then we’ll be square.“"

Rick isn’t having it. As Joe leans down to taunt him, Rick bites a chunk out of Joe’s neck. Who’s the savage now? Joe is left to bleed out, while Daryl and Michonne take care of the other savages.

This just proves how far Rick would go to save his son and his people.
