Shane arrives and tells her that Rick is in the hospital because of what happened on the road. In the present, Rick runs seeking help, carrying Carl in his arms while Shane follows them with the hunter, Otis, who had accidentally shot Carl. They reach a farm and Carl is attended by an old man called Hershel. He finds that the bullet has shattered into six fragments and he needs Rick's blood for transfusion to Carl.

Trivia

When Daryl takes out Merle's stash to help T-Dogs infection a large amount of blue crystal fills the lower part of the bag. Identical to the p2p cook, blue meth that Walter and Jesse begin to produce in the 7th episode of Breaking Bad (2008). See more »

Goofs

When Shane asks Hershel what he needs to operate on Carl, Hershel says he needs to put him under, to which Otis states: "you need a respirator." A respirator is a device designed to protect the wearer from inhaling particulate matter, including airborne microorganisms, fumes, vapors and gases. The correct term for the machine they needed is a ventilator. A medical ventilator is a mechanical ventilator, a machine designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently. Calling a ventilator a respirator is a common television and movie mistake. See more »

Paula: I'm sorry, hon. Men can be jerks.
Lori Grimes: Thing is, if we're being honest, he wasn't the asshole.
