But you have to take into account Glenn's nature here. Sure, Rick may have shot him on site, Glenn isn't going to do that.
Then he's a born sucker.
When he last saw Merle, he was violent, beat T-Dog, and had to be cuffed to the roof. Then, they abandon him (which you know is not going to inspire anything other than thoughts of revenge), and cut his own hand off. Again, there's that inspiration for revenge, which should have shocked Glenn into action the moment he laid eyes on Merle.
What part of his earlier experiences with Merle did he (Glenn) forget which would make him give Merle even a hint of a chance?
Glenn is a nice character, but he kind of asked for the kidnapping.
