Storyline

Rick and Shane drive 18 miles out far from Hershel's farm to seek a safe place to leave the outsider Randall, who has recovered from the injury to his leg. Rick stops the car at a crossroad and has a serious conversation with Shane about Lori and Carl. When they reach a county prison, they leave Randall with his hands and legs tied and a knife. While pleading for his life, Randall says he knows Maggie. Shane decides to kill him. Rick and Shane fight, and at one point Shane throws a big wrench at Rick that misses him but breaks a window in the building. A swarm of walkers crawl out and attack the humans. They trap Shane in a school bus, and though Rick at first wants to leave him to be killed. he gets the car and goes back to save him. Back at the farm, Beth wants to commit suicide but she is dissuaded by Lori and Maggie. When Andrea offers to keep an eye on Beth, she leaves her alone to reach a decision.

Simply the best episode from a simply awesome show
12 October 2015 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

What an unforgettable episode! There are two story-arcs: The tensions between Shane & Rick 18 miles out from the farm and Beth's suicidal issues. It's not easy to describe my reasons why I love this episode best. Maybe it's the fact that the relationship between Rick and Shane finally comes to a point that had been predicted a long time ago. Furthermore, Beth's story really captivated me. Her situation is so believable and tangible. In my opinion - Beth is us. We don't know anything about dealing with such a terrifying world. The fact that she has suicidal thoughts makes her really human. I also find the tensions between Andrea and Lori pretty gripping. The two women are arguing about a quite controversial topic which might lead to interesting discussions among viewers. This is a top-notch episode! My all-time favorite.
