They find themselves trapped from all angles and take shelter in a boarded up pet store. Heath and Michonne plot an escape but realize they can’t take on the walkers in the condition they’re in. Heath is being negative. Glenn plans to draw the walkers the walkers away with a flair. Michonne volunteers to do the job but he insists on doing it himself. Nicholas tells Glenn of a feed store and volunteers to go with him. Glenn looks at Hershel’s pocket watch and calls to Rick.

Michonne asks Heath if he has a problem with her. He tells her he heard what Rick said. Michonne vouches for her people and Heath doubts her loyalty. Michonne explains that Rick has been through a lot more than Heath. She questions whether he has had to kill people who killed his friends and other difficult things Heath has never experienced.

Heath helps Scott and Annie up in the pet store. Walkers walk by, attracted to the sound of gun fire. When the walkers clear, Michonne and company will head for the feed store.
Rick continues running down the street, right passed all the walkers her were trampled by the wall at the RV. He is favoring his injured hand.
The bitten man hands a note to Michonne for his wife. Michonne writes, “You’re getting home,” on her forearm and hands the note back to him. Thuds sound against the back door. Michonne and the group prepare for a fight. She opens the door and dispatches the pair inside but some walkers outside start swarming the door and the herd from earlier is approaching.
They bust the door open and take out the walkers in immediate distance and rush down the street. Annie lags behind and gets devoured.

Heath, Scott, and Michonne continue through the woods. Scott collapses but they continue and come to river. Michonne sees that there is no smoke. Heath tells her it doesn’t mean they didn’t make it. She looks at the writing on her forearm. Heath looks at himself in a reflection on the water. His face is covered in blood.
Rick parks the RV and radios for Glenn then Tobin but no one responds. Then Daryl, who tells him, “I’m here.” Rick tells him it won’t be long until the walkers get where they need to. Rick wants to keep going forward with the plan despite the gunshots coming from home.
Rick holds a tissue in his hand to control the bleeding. A Wolf busts in and starts shooting. It’s the Wolf who grabbed the gun fleeing Alexandria in last week’s episode. Daryl heard it on the walkie but now Rick isn’t answering. Rick fights off two Wolves in the RV. He guns them down with his revolver. Daryl rides over to him. He finds baby formula in one man’s pocket. He sees others approaching in the window and arms himself appropriately, opening fire through the wall the wall.
