Tyreese wants Rick to act like the cop he was and figure out who killed and burned Karen and David. He’s so upset, he can’t see straight and goes after Daryl, then Rick. Rick retaliates, and punches and kicks Tyreese until he can’t get up without Daryl’s help. Rick goes to see Hershel to have his hand looked at and Hershel worries that everything they’ve tried to keep out has found it’s way in, but Rick thinks it’s always been there. Hershel says that Rick just fell off the wagon, like Hershel has in the past. The answer is to just get back on and keep going. Tyreese begins digging graves for Karen and David and tells a concerned Bob that he’ll have the doctor look at his wounds after he’s done and they’re in the ground.
The council meets and they conclude that everyone who was in Cell Block D is probably infected and should be isolated in Cell Block A. Sasha is coughing, as is Glenn and even Dr. S. Hershel has an idea that there may be antibiotics available at a veterinary college that might help the sick. Daryl and Michonne will make the trip, but would like to have some help. Hershel also thinks that, just as a precaution, the very young should also be quarantined – including Carl and baby Judith. Carol is trying to pump water, but the well isn’t working very well and she wants to fix it. Rick tells her to wait until tomorrow then looks for Tyreese to apologize for what he did. Tyreese is adamant that Rick should start investigating the two deaths or, as he sees it, to do otherwise means that murder is okay.
Daryl is working on the car, readying it for the trip to the vet school when Michonne comes to help him, He tells her that he’s glad she’s going but wants Tyreese to join them, rather than having him standing guard outside the Block housing the infected. Hershel is leaving the camp to go outside and find elderberries when Carl stops him. So much for the quarantine thing. He accuses Hershel of trying to sneak out and tells him that since he can’t stop him, he’s going with him. Carl is getting scarier by the minute – maybe Rick gave him that gun back a little too soon. On the other hand, Carol is distraught as she watches one child after another entering the isolation ward, including Lizzie. She promised to watch over her and all of the children and it seems to be breaking her into pieces. Hershel is gathering elderberries while Carl keeps a lookout. They come across a tent and what appears to be the top half of a walker. Then another walker, with her foot in a trap wanders toward them. Carl wants to shoot her but Hershel stops him telling the boy that there’s really no need to shoot.
Just before Daryl and Michonne leave for the medicine run, Tyreese stops to say good-bye to Sasha and tell her that everyone may have a chance of getting better. His next stop is to see Carol and he asks her to take care of Sasha. He then goes outside to let Daryl and Michonne know that he’s going with them, along with Bob, who’s also volunteered to make the run.
Maggie’s upset that Hershel has been in the quarantine area but he tells her that this is something he can do to help those people. The elderberry tea may give them some relief from their symptoms and that’s reason enough to risk his life. Meanwhile, Carol has decided to fix the broken well herself and, in no time, has walkers moving in her direction. Rick sees that’s she’s surrounded and hollers for her to run, but she continues to work on the well. He runs outside the fence to ward off the walkers and Carol finally begins to fight them off, too, and they manage to make it safely back inside.
Daryl, Michonne, Tyreese and Bob are making their way to the vet school when they hear what sounds like a voice on the care radio. Distracted by the sound, Daryl crashes into some walkers. Looking up they see that there are thousands of them and they’re descending on the car like a million zombie march. Daryl throws the care into reverse, crushing some walkers and causing the back tires to get hung up. Their only choice is to get out and fight off the walkers until they can make it into the woods. Tyreese hesitates, though and stays in the car despite the pleas from the others for him to get out. When he finally does, he seems to be overcome by the walkers, leaving the others to make their escape without him. Once in the woods, they turn and see Tyreese is trying to get to them. Daryl runs to his side to help him get away from the walkers and make their escape.
Hershel is with Dr. S. in the isolation ward, offering him some of the elderberry tea. Dr. S. doesn’t think that Hershel should be there, but the vet says that if the tables were turned and he wasn’t sick, Dr. S. would be in there helping, too. Dr. S. then coughs up some blood, all over Hershel’s face. The older man takes off his face scarf and wipes the blood away, then moves on to Glenn.
Carol is hauling water inside when Rick confronts her about the well. He tells her that what she did was stupid and she agrees. He also says that she does a lot for everyone, especially the sacrifices she makes for the children. He asks her if there’s anything she wouldn’t do and she says no. He also asks her if she killed David and Karen. She says yes and turns away. I can’t say that I saw that coming.
