[Both breathing heavily]

Virgil: Look! Look!

Sorry. Sorry. I’m just


No. It might be a house.

We could hide.

[Leaves rustle]

[Soft growling]



[Virgil grunting]

[Footsteps approach]

[Growling continues]


[Virgil grunting]

[Growling stops]


[Thumping and growling]

We’ll make better time if I ride out on my own.

It’s less risky, and we’re gonna cover more ground with a larger group. The Council’s working on a plan right now.

Connie doesn’t have time to wait on a committee.

Well, why don’t we split the difference between fast and safe?

Teams of two. We could divide the map up into smaller grids.

It could reduce the risk.

Hey. Any of you seen Kelly?

[Horse neighing]


[Walkers growling]

[Bones crack softly]



I checked the whole house.

We’re okay. Nobody’s here.

You need

“You need… some rest.”

You haven’t slept in days.

“I can keep watch.”

“We will find… your home.”






[Walkers growling faintly]



Tell us where they are!



[Frost screaming]

Carver: My dance card’s wide open, man.

We got all day.

[Frost groaning]

This bother you?

I’ve done worse.

[Frost screams]


[Frost screams]

Why don’t you take a turn, then?

Pope: Speed things up for me.

All right. I’m up.

Like hell you are!

[Frost breathing sharply]

Well, are we just gonna stand here staring at each other dreamily or are we gonna get to it?


Hey, you kill him, the two of us are gonna have a problem!

[Frost coughing]

Don’t need a babysitter.

I know what I’m doing.

[Breathing sharply]

Just give ’em a location, where your friends are hiding.

You do that, this all goes away.

That’s, uh…

That’s a good offer.


…and hear me out… you all could go eat shit instead.

Just a thought. [Coughs]

Already gone through these steps.

Maybe we start taking pieces.

Frost: You do what you gotta do.

Give him a knife.

I don’t think you understand.

I’m the best shot you got.

Why? We “friends” now?

No. Not ’cause we’re friends.

‘Cause I’m the one holding the knife.


And your buddy’s the one holding the gun.

Shut up!

Shut up and listen to me.

I know you’re close to her.

The leader.

Close enough to know where they’re hidin’.

No one needs to die in here.

So just say a location so we can all walk away happy.

[Breathing rapidly]

Go to hell, assho–


Daryl: Location!

Or I take another!

I can’t!


No! No! Please stop!



Yellow house.

Town off the 283.

Antenna. Antenna. Antenna. Antenna.



Daryl: Is that good enough?

I can scout it out.

Take a squad. Three of you.

See if our friend speaks truth.

You want us to take him?

[Frost coughs]


[Lock clicks]



Wait. What happened?

S-Slow down. I don’t understand.




[Scraping continues]

[Crow cawing]

Looks quiet. No movement.

Two entrances. Breach both?

By twos. You take Powell.

Washington, Fish, go around the back of the yellow house.

What about dickhead?

Am I supposed to believe he’s got my back?

No, that’s my job.


[Mouths word]





It’s all clear, Carve.

That son of a bitch jerked us around.

We should stay, look around for a bit, so we don’t miss nothing.

No, we’ll search the rest of the town first.

Quick and quiet, in case they’re still nearby.

You three, take the north end and work back.

We’ll meet you in the middle. Copy.


[Flies buzzing]


Where are you?

Virgil: My grandfather’s house used to have one of these.

I’d secretly shove stuff in there.


I-I’m sorry. I don’t see anything.

I’m sure you saw something…


But you haven’t slept.

So maybe it’s…

Y-Yeah. ‘Cause…

Okay, okay. Okay. I’m sorry.

You and me, let’s give the house another sweep, okay?



[Soft rumbling]

[Person grunting]


Voice: Hungry!

[Thumping and grunting continue]

Leah: Clear!

Over here!

They’re still wet.

Guess he was telling the truth, then.

Carver: We should clear the other rooms.



[Door slams]


[Door slams]



Maybe they went out the back. I can track them.

Are you in a hurry to leave?


Other building, you wanted to stick around and make sure we didn’t miss anything.

Now you wanna run right off. Which is it?

Look, man, I’m just trying to help.

Yet you keep chirpin’.

Fine. You lose ’em, it’s on you. It ain’t on me.


Wash, we need a perimeter check. Possible runners. Half a klick.

Washington: Copy that, Shaw.

Look. I don’t have time for this toddler bullshit.


I know.

I understand, but I don’t need it.

Go sift upstairs, make sure we didn’t miss anything.


Don’t what?

You’re either with us or you’re not.

What do you want me to do?

For one thing… stop pissing off Carver.

Usually don’t end well.


[Grunts] Come on.


Please. Just a

[Horse neighs]

Just a little bit… more!

Carol: Whoa! Kelly?


You need help?

What the hell were you thinking?

You should have told us that you were heading out.

Come here.

[Grunts] I’m fine.

But Connie’s not.

I found her camp.

She’s with some guy who knew Michonne.

They left in a hurry. Something’s not right.

She thought they were being followed.

She’s out there.

She’s scared.

She needs me.

And if… if something happened to her…

No. We’re gonna find her first.


Come on. Let’s get movin’.



[Person grunting]

[Thumping and grunting stop]




[Soft rumbling]

[Glass shatters]

[Person grunting]

[Grunting continues]

[Objects clattering]


[Multiple people grunting]


[Virgil grunting]

[Grunting and thumping]

[Thumping on wall]

[Thumping on wall]

[Grunting continues]

[Thumping on wall]


[Both grunting]






Oh! Oh, God. Connie.


Come on. I got you. Come on.

Oh, God.

They ran. They ain’t comin’ back here.


I mean, think about it. You hit ’em hard.

Even if they get more people, they won’t come back here.

It’s a bad move.

You got what? 20 people in your town.

You got weapons. You got walls.

You’d see them coming from a mile away.

Trust me. They ran.

Is there a point to any of this?

Let’s go. There’s nothing here. It’s time we move on.

No. We’re missing something.

Fine. Let’s waste another hour. That’s smart.


It’s not my fault he’s too stupid to pay attention!

Yeah. Chirp, chirp, chirp.

Leah: Enough.

Ah, screw that.

This dirtbag wants to play, I’ll teach him the rules.

I’m right here, man. Make a move.

This is not the time, and it’s not your call to make.

Jesus, Shaw.

We both know who he really is deep down.


I was there. Remember?


What, you think this is gonna end any different?

So this is what? You looking out for me?




And what about the fire?

When Pope locked me in the cabin and lit it up.

You must have known.

Was that you looking out for me, too?

Shaw. Wake up.

Everything’s a test now.

If you think this guy is ever gonna give a shit about any of us, you’re gonna fail.

No, he’s right.

I don’t give a shit about any of you.

Except you.

I’m here for you.

It’s no secret. I made mistakes.

But I’m here right now.

Maybe I’d be better at it this time, if you’d let me.

And Pope scares the shit outta me.

I don’t wanna be face-first in the fire under his boot.

But if you say trust ’em, I’ll trust ’em.

We’ve wasted enough time here already.

Oh, you’re not seriously gonna

It’s time to move on.

Sure. Your call.

Hold on.

Told ya.

[Thunder rumbles]

Which way?

We could split up, check both trails, double back.

Storm’s coming. We should stick together.

It’s up to you. Which way do you think she went?

[Thunder cracks]

That way.

[Thunder rumbling]

Virgil: They led us here.

I’ve never seen people this far gone.

To herd us, like prey.

But we’re not.

I’m getting you out.

We’ll make a run for it.

Take this.

No matter what happens… you have to keep going.

With or without me. Don’t stop.


No. No, no, no, no, no. Please.

Just take it.

[Knife clatters]

I don’t know how to explain. Um…

But I don’t have a choice.

I lost myself… for a long time.

Off the map.

And I, um…


I made choices that I can’t un-choose.

But she gave me another chance.


She pointed me back to the road, and somehow that road led right to you.

So I have to pass on that chance, or it all means nothing.

And if you can…

[Voice breaking] If you… can find your family…

No, no. No.

Listen, listen, listen.

I need you to promise me that you will keep going, no matter what happens.



[Grunting and thumping]

Time’s up.

[Grunting and thumping continue]


Go. Go. Go, go. Go, go!



Go. Get out.

[Virgil grunting]

[Person growling]

[Walkers growling]



[Walkers growling]

[People screaming]

[Thunder rumbles] Go.

[Person snarling]


They were there.

Caught signs, but they slipped away.

[Sighs] Sorry.



I thought you’d be disappointed.

Well, this day was a success.

How so?

After you left,

I continued the “discussion” with our guest.

He wasn’t too talkative.

But I got everything I needed out of him.




[Pope whispering]
