Sophia is being treated by Alex as Maggie and her fellow citizens get into a serious discussion about the situation. Soon enough, the parents of the boys who Carl beat up, arrive with their beaten sons and begin standing up to their leader, demanding that Carl be severely punished. Carl stands up for himself and claims self defense, explaining to them that the boys were trying to kill Sophia and he had to stop them, but the parents do not agree. The boys are taken in to see Dr. Carson and Maggie takes Carl away from the hospital to the cells.
Elsewhere, Jesus questions the Whisperer, 16-year-old Lydia, who reveals that her group tries to cooperate with zombies and that they do not kill them. Lydia informs Jesus they have to work with them or they will be killed.
Maggie escorts Carl to a cell and passes Paul interrogating Lydia, she ushers him into the cell next to them as Carl wonders aloud why he is being punished for saving a life to which Maggie explains that he almost killed the boys and they won't kill anymore as Rick figured out after the war. She leaves to inform Jesus that Darius will survive, and takes him away from Lydia. Lydia greets Carl with a large grin on her face.
In their mobile home, the parents of the two boys are fed up with the way Maggie is running things and begin discussing how to handle Carl. In the corner, Gregory informs the bullies' parents that there is a solution and that it involves killing Maggie.
