Music plays as Madison wakes up in bed alone. She rises to look outside to see men guarding the gate of the Ranch. The song sings, "Just remember, that death is not the end."
Elsewhere,infected approach Troy's militia. Some are eating a horse. Others follow a dog. Nick is wearing military gear and carrying a knife.
Madison washes her face.
Alicia pumps water from a well.
Madison enters Jeremiah's room.
Nick beats a walker with his bare hands. Nick orders him to burn the body in order to prevent it from ruining the soil.
In Jake's room, he is sick, and claims he just needs coffee. Alicia gives him a towel and tells him he is pale. "It's worse in the morning," he claims.
Troy's militia walk on a path to their four wheeler. Troy calls Nick a poet and says that's not bad thing.
Madison investigates the area where Jeremiah was killed. She sits at his desk and rummages through drawers.
The militia cruises along and sees Walker's group moving in a convoy not far from them.
Madison tries to open drawers but they are locked. Her efforts halt when the commotion outside catches her attention. Everyone heads to the gate of the community with Jake walking outside to greet this apparently unexpected convoy. Walker shakes his hand -- his forehead is still healing. Troy and Nick look on, as does Ofelia from the other side. Walker waves everyone in. The Ranch residents are not happy about the group moving onto the land.
The Fear the Walking Dead logo takes the screen.
Ofelia enters the basement where all of the resources are held. Troy doesn't want her there but Qualetaca insists they all get along. Troy is reluctant but Sam insists he play along. Troy exits. "How many feel as Troy does?" Walker asks. Sam admits most of their people do. He reveals the arsenal to Troy and gives him a key to it -- to one of the two locks. Jake will hold the other.
Troy and Nick stand at Jeremiah's grave. Troy is angry at his father for leaving them with this situation. Nick tries to give Jeremiah a heroic legacy but Troy calls him a drunk. Nick tells Troy he lost his dad, too, so he can relate. Nick believes his dad's death in traffic was suicide.
At the dam, Daniel and Lola discusses their plans now that Dante is dead. Daniel rules she is Dante now.
At the Ranch, the tribe is checked through security as are the current residents. No one is allowed to carry weapons. There is a clear contrast between Walker's men and the militia.
In the cafeteria, Madison and Alicia discuss Jake's questionable health. It quickly turns to Alicia accusing Madison of "backchanneling" with Walker and lying.
Back at the dam, Daniel observes the people they are helping. Thet are welcoming new people to the community. They spot a number of infected approaching which sends the group into a chaotic sprint in different directions.
At the Ranch, night has fallen and Jake addresses everyone. "Our path has been hard," Jake said. "We've all suffered loss but we can't dwell on that and move forward. We can't hold grudges and forgive. This place has always been about building a better future. If we share our supplies and our skills we can have that. In a generation, we can be whole. It's what this place should be."
Walker chimes in. "You're afraid. Afraid as we are of you," he said. "My grudge died when Jeremiah made a sacrifice. We can be one now. We can fight against the hell outside. Give that our fear. Our fury." He raises a glass and many do the same with him.
Nick knocks on Ofelia's door. "I killed people, Nick," she said. "Glad you survived." Nick asks if she feels guilt. She doesn't feel as much as she thought she would. "I guess I am my father's daughter, huh? What about you?" Nick doesn't understand why he should feel guilty at first. "We're not so different, you and I, Nick."
Walker offers Madison at Jeremiah's wake. Walker questions whether or not Madison is actually in charge. As Jake and Alicia walk away, Troy tells him, "You're sleeping with the enemy, brother." Jake, however, vouches for a peaceful approach to the future. When Jake leaves, Troy stirs up some conversation which turns people against the peace.
In a field, Alicia spots Walker burying the relics given to him. He doesn't want his people to know because it will disturb the peace. Alicia wants Walker to go to Jake instead of her mother but Walker insists, "Your mother does what's necessary."
In Jeremiah's room, Madison discovers a note which claims there is 124 days worth of water available.

In the infirmary, Terrence is suffocated as his esophagus has been broken. Walker is concerned for his people and demands the second key to the arsenal from Jake. Madison directs Jake to turn over the other key and allow Walker's group to control the weapons. He does and walks away.
At night, Coop and the militia collect weapons from the Ranch's residents.
Moments later, Madison and Nick discuss how important it is to keep Jeremiah's murder a secret. They arrive at Troy's house and demand his weapons. Troy is curious about his own safety. Nick helps convince him by saying, "You don't want to die on your doorstep." Troy allows everyone inside. He sits in his father's chair and discusses his father dying in it. When the men want to search upstairs, Troy draws a gun on them. Nick stands in the way of the gun and orders everyone to leave, closing the door behind them.
Madison asks Walker not to attack Troy from the inside. Inside, Nick questions what Troy is doing. Troy reveals a cache of weapons. He wants to go upstairs and start sniping the enemies. Nick tries to talk him down but Troy is adamant. He hands Nick a rifle and heads to the window. He sees Madison first, who tells him everyone handed over their weapons so no one will follow him. He does not want to surrender but Madison wants to survive. Gunfire bursts out and Walker's men begin shooting at Troy. Nick and Troy run for cover.
A gun fight ensues. Troy gets on of Walker's men. Inside, a man gets the drop on Nick but Troy saves his life and puts the enemy down. Heading upstairs, he continues to gun the men down. Troy closes the door behind him. "If I can make a fist, I can fire a gun! If I can fire a gun, I can kill," Troy insists. He reloads his rifle and positions himself by the door.
Troy thanks Nick for his support.
At the dam, Daniel notices more infected have gotten in. Lola elects they will deal with them later. He is thinking about Ofelia but she tells him the world is gone in every direction. Hope is okay but waiting is not. "Nothing breaks me, Lola," he tells her. "I'm immortal."
The gunfight continues at the Ranch. Nick tells Troy, "I don't want to die." Troy tells him he backed the wrong horse. Troy insists they're at the point of no return. He insists he is taking some back.
Nick attacks Troy and starts yelling out, "We surrender!" The two fight in the room until Troy gets his rifle again. The men are about to enter the room. Nick starts telling Troy the truth about Jeremiah, saying he was going to let everyone die. "He didn't kill himself," Nick said. "I killed him."
Troy turns the gun to Nick. He ultimately drops it and hangs his head.
The next day, Madison talks with Walker. Walker wants justice. Madison says they can't kill Troy but she doesn't want them to kill him. "You can't martyr him," she said. Walker suggests exile before calling for Nick to be part of this, as well, for his support of Troy. "There can be consequences but he stays here," Madison insists. "Nick lives."
At the dam, Daniel helps split up the water. People are demanding more and claiming Daniel took it for himself. Something hits Lola in the head. Chaos ensues. A truck pulls up and rescues them from the angry mob.
Jake and Troy discuss Troy's exile. "You can't come back," Jake said. "Never, Troy." Troy wants Madison to take him. Jake wants to go but Troy insists on Madison, who he trusts to protect him.
Troy is put in the bed of truck with his hands tied and given one bullet, in the event he decides he wants to kill himself. Meanwhile, Nick is escorted to a hot box where Walker promises he will suffer. The truck drives off with Troy, now with a bag over his head.
Later, down an unknown road, the truck comes to a stop. Madison gets out and they're going to free Troy here. Troy calls her the "white witch of the apocalypse." Troy questions why he wouldn't come back and Madison insists he wouldn't do that to his brother. Claw Jackson of Walker's tribe cuts Troy free but Troy sticks the knife through his own hand to take it and kill him.
Madison shoots her gun in the air and demands he take his pack and go. "I don't want to kill you," she said. He questions her guilt for killing Jeremiah. "You... let your son shoot him?" Troy asks. "What stopped you? What's stopping you now?"
Troy yanks the gun and grabs Madison. "Your father wanted to let other people die! He wanted to let you die! He could've banished himself," she insists.
"I don't surrender, Madison. I don't surrender."
Madison headbutts Troy and goes for the gun. She gets to it and points it at him. Troy tries to talk to Madison more before switching to how tired he is. He takes his backpack and starts walking. Madison keeps her gun aimed for a moment but eventually holsters it as Troy walks off.
