Episode 1: Rick picks up Hershel and sees the prisoners that were watching. He sets Hershel down and points his gun at them, saying if anyone moves they die. One man tells Rick they don't want to harm him and they have been there since the beginning. Rick goes one by one and asks the prisoners what their name is. They go down the line by saying Dave, Tony, Axel, Kent, Harold, Tomas, Dexter, Pauline and Nicole. Hershel suggests that they tell Rick what they're in for, and Rick says no because they should all be on watch and they would lie to him if they were in for a bad crime. Rick tells them to stay put and he rushes Hershel to the group. Maggie and Patricia run to help him and they tie his leg to stop the bleeding. Rick brings Jack, Seth, Daryl and Andrea to the prisoners so they can get to know them and see if they are any trouble. After they interrogate them, everyone but Harold seems to be fine, and the group take him to be further looked into. Rick tells the remaining prisoners to stay on their side of the prison and they won't get into any trouble. They take back Harold and after questioning, he seems to just have been trying to look tough and he is okay, but Jack suggests that they keep him on their side for one night just to make sure he is okay. The group get settled in and everything seems okay. In the middle of the night, Rick wakes up to a screaming Otis who was just shot and killed. When the group wake up, they find Otis dead and Harold missing.

Maggie tells her she is so sorry and she loved Otis like an uncle and that they avenged his death. Lizzie and Mika ask Carol what is going on and she says that they are living with bad people. Lori talks to Rick and says she doesn't want her children living at the prison if this is what is going to happen. Rick assures her that they solved the problem and that was it. Dale talks to Andrea and how regrets not being there to help when everything went down with Shane at the farm as his trip was useless, but Andrea assures him it was worth it because they saved Tyreese. Sasha and Tyreese talk about how they fear this wasn't the best group for them to enter. Patricia takes a walk outside of the prison to try and clear her head, when she is taken by Dexter, Tomas, and Nicole. Dexter fires off three shots in the air and Rick and Seth walk out to see what is going on and Dexter points a gun at Patricia's head. Dexter tells him that Harold was just bluffing and he didn't do anything. He tells him he was the one who killed Otis and then he took Harold back. Rick says he wants them to live and they can just live in seperate areas but this needs to stop now. Dexter doesn't budge, and he shoots Patricia in the head, killing her instantly. Rick and Seth fire back, struggling but successfully killing Dexter, Tomas and Nicole. After they calm down from the mess, the team goes again and interrogates the remaining prisoners, Dave, Tony, Axel, Kent and Pauline. Rick lets Jack interrogate them, as he previously worked for the FBI. Dave tells Jack that they really are innocent and have no intentions of killing anyone. They say that they are all in for petty things, ranging from insurance fraud to leaving a child in the car in the summer. Jack believes them, but says they need to be watched to Rick in private, just to be safe. Rick agrees and the group leave to go to bed, leaving Seth and Glenn to take shifts secretly watching the prisoners. Hershel begins to wake up.

Rick, Daryl and Maggie show up and Seth explains what happens and how Lizzie and Mika are nowhere to be seen. Rick tells Daryl to stay with the prisoners as the rest go and try to find Lizzie and Mika. After searching with no luck, they go back to their cell block and see Lizzie and Mika sleeping next to Carol. Pauline walks up behind Rick with a gun pointed at his head and says she knew he couldn't be trusted and he was just as bad as Dexter, Tomas and Nicole. Rick says this wasn't him and that Lizzie and Mika are insane, but Pauline doesn't believe him and she shoots Dale in the head. Andrea shoots Pauline and then everyone rushes to Dale's body. Daryl hears the shot and brings Axel and Kent with him to hear what's going on. Everyone cries over Dale, especially Andrea and Seth.
