Having found some of the prison inmates alive, Rick proposes that they clear out another cell block for them. The prisoners were locked in the cafeteria area by a prison guard when a riot erupted 10 months before and have been there ever since. They have no idea what has been going on in the outside world. Rick's first priority is to protect everyone in his group so when push comes to shove, he's prepared to do whatever is necessary. Hershel is still unconscious following the amputation and they are keeping a close watch on him in the event he should turn into a walker. Carl upsets his mother when when goes off on his own. As for Carol, she realizes helping Lori with the birth of her baby will now fall on her shoulders. Written by
Plot In A Paragraph: As Hershel's health deteriorates, Rick is convinced the prison is their new salvation, but they have already encountered surviving prisoners and walkers.
Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is confronted with decisions he doesn't really want to make. Mainly what to do with some surviving (and quite clearly dangerous) prisoners still in the prison. That is one of the great things I love about The Walking Dead. It doesn't present a clear answer to these questions.
The diplomatic Rick tries striking a bargain with surviving prisoners. It's obvious from the start this is a mistake. We know as viewers it's not going to work out.
This episode has loads of action but it offered some real emotional moments too as Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Beth (Emily Kinney) deal with the possible death of their father. It goes back and forth between the near-death Hershel (Scott Wilson) and Rick, Daryl (Norman Reedus), and T-Dog (IronE Singleton) dealing with walkers and prisoners.
We didn't see any of Andrea (Laurie Holden) or Michonne (Danai Gurira) in this episode. It never leaves the prison, which is a shame as I was looking forward to seeing more of Michonne.
