Back at the Hilltop, Gregory confronts Maggie about the disappearance of Dante's group who have been gone for two days. He insists they send out more parties to search for them but Maggie declines. She informs him that they still don't know what's going on and until they know more, she won't risk anyone. Gregory is upset by this and states that she is being irresponsible and proclaims that he'll step in if he needs to and go out himself to search for Dante and his men. Maggie obliges and tells him to go ahead. She then asks if he can even ride a horse before calling him a joke, storming off.
Meanwhile, Carl and Sophia are eating together outside reminiscing about how the undead look sad when they are attacked by two boys. One of them slams a brick in the back of Carl's head and grabs Sophia. As Carl runs off, the bullies call him a coward as they start beating Sophia. Just then, one of the bullies is struck in the back of the head by Carl with a shovel. Carl then viciously beats one before turning to the other who begs for his life before being struck down by Carl. Sophia looks on in shock as Carl mercilessly beats the kid with the shovel repeatedly.
Jesus soon arrives at the Hilltop and sends Darius to see Carson. Maggie looks on in disbelief at his prisoner when Carl and Sophia call out to Maggie. Maggie asks what happend as Carl helps Sophia to them when a bloody Carl tells her that two boys attacked her and that he thinks he killed them.
