E-Brake unraveled/uncoiled help!

Heres a pic of my E brake cable under my K5, I just wanted to know what I have to do to fix this problem? Do I have to replace the whole cable or is it possible to fix it another way?

i believe they come in sections. there are 2 pieces or more so you dont have to run a new wire all the way from the front. its been a while since i gutted one out of a k5 blazer so not really sure how they are held in. some are a pain, others you just have to pinch little tabs to get out. and you have to take your drum (s) off and re hook it there too. sorry cant be much more help
