Easier maybe, but if I had my hands on a saw I'm pretty sure I'd choose the more difficult task in this case.

I think he is Irish. He was also in a huge cult movie called Boondock saints.

So if there were a bunch of zombies coming to get you and you were handcuffed down you would choose the longer option and potentially get eaten by zombies?

Also, if you cut your hand off, you can use it as bait to lure away zombies.

Probably, the chances of dying from cutting off you're hand seem pretty high as well. At the very least you would be weak from blood loss and be more likely to get caught and eaten in the end anyway. Not to mention you'd probably get halfway through and pass out from pain/blood loss, then get eaten.

I'd take my chances with the chain.

Keep in mind the fact that he was delirious, dehydrated and starving by that time. That can cause some poor decisions. I'm ok with the plot so far.

Still loving it.

So, show of hands: Who would cut it off in that situation?

Not me. Cut the chain or get eaten.

I'd try cut the chain first.
But hacksaws can be pretty weak - especially if it's old - so there's a good chance you would just dull or bend all of the teeth.
If I didn't cut the chain, and zombies were literally at the door - I'd just wait it out.
If I needed to escape, I'd cut the hand off.
Surviving beats having a limb. Ask any animal that's chewed it's leg off after being caught in a trap.

Pretty good episode I thought. Just a shame that that person had to die.

I was wondering: if the redneck wasn't in the comics, was the story still comparable?

Yeah, the last episode was really good, and they sort of addressed the earlier debate of limb vs chain by saying the saw was too dull to cut through the cuffs.

Although that begs another questions: Why didn't he just cut off his thumb?

Your thinking about this too hard. The point of it all was to establish Merle as a bad-ass to be reckoned with. He is the first true human enemy they will likely face, and a man willing to cut off his own hand to escape a trap is a man willing to do pretty much anything.
