Meanwhile inside the Safe-Zone, Carl awakens from a nightmare which, based on his description, was most likely him remembering how he killed Ben. Rick runs to Carl and comforts him. Carl tells Rick he is sorry for yelling at him earlier that night.
The next morning, Rick asks Olivia for coffee but she tells him the suppliers did not find any.
While clearing the roamers away from the perimeter outside of the Alexandria Safe-Zone, Abraham and Michonne talk about Michonne being lonely. Without any warning, the unknown overseer reveals himself to Abraham and Michonne. Michonne and Abraham attempt to subdue the overseer, however, the overseer is able to best both and then holds Abraham hostage, telling Michonne to bring the Safe-Zone's leader to him and he will release Abraham unharmed.
Michonne fetches Rick who meets this overseer. The overseer releases Abraham and introduces himself to Rick as Paul Monroe, also nicknamed "Jesus". Paul explains that he is from a community of two hundred residents located twenty miles away on the other side of Washington, D.C.. He says that he is not interested in attacking the Safe-Zone nor stealing from them. Rather, Paul says he is interested in establishing a trade route with the Safe-Zone, saying that his community has a farm and can offer food and clothing. He further says his community is interested in ammo or anything else of value that Rick's people might have to offer. He shows Rick his empty gun as proof of his need for bullets. Paul also says he knows of two other groups of survivors near to the Safe-Zone.
The news of three communities so close to their own comes as a shock to Rick, Michonne, and Abraham.
