Storyline

The group of survivors is organizing the preparation for the winter following the instructions of Rick. Carl is uncomfortable, feeling responsible for the death of Dale and he talks to Shane about what had happened in the swamp. He asks Shane to give the weapon back to Daryl and Shane talks to Rick about the problem. While Rick and Carl are having a conversation, Shane works hard and Lori tells to him that she is not sure whether the baby is his or Rick's. Shane releases Randall and walks with him on the field. Out of the blue, he breaks Randall's neck, hides his body and simulates that Randall has beaten him up. Daryl and T-Dog and Rick and Shane seek Randall in the real estate. When Daryl and Glen find Randall's body, Shane threatens Rick with his weapon, forcing him to defend himself. Carl arrives and draws the gun that his father gave to him.

Quotes

[first lines]
Rick Grimes: [Rick stands over Dale's grave with the rest of the group, narrating] Dale could... could get under your skin. He sure got under mine, because he wasn't afraid to say exactly what he thought, how he felt. That kind of honesty is rare and brave. Whenever I'd make a decision, I'd look at Dale. He'd be looking back at me with that look he had. We've all seen it one time or another. I couldn't always read him, but he could read us. He saw people for who they were. He knew things about ...
