Plot Summary

Daryl decides to search the woods for Sophia at night with Andrea tagging along. They find a walker strung up by a noose. Andrea lets Daryl ask her a question if he kills it. He asks her if she wants to live and gets an indecisive answer. Daryl kills the walker anyway. When they get back to the highway, Dale gives Andrea her gun back and asks Andrea for her forgiveness; Andrea begins trying to forgive Dale. At the high school, Otis splits up with Shane so Shane can escape through another window. Shane goes through the window and injuries his leg after falling off the window ledge. He then finds Otis and they attempt to outrun a horde of walkers. They are slowed down by Shane's leg and they are running out of bullets. Shane sacrifices Otis by shooting him in the leg. Shane makes his escape while the walkers are preoccupied with ripping apart Otis.

Glen and T-Dog are able to find their way to the farm. Maggie spots them and stitches T-Dog's wound after a quick introduction. Lori contemplates whether it would be better if Carl dies now or goes on to live in a dangerous world where there is death is just around the corner. Carl's condition worsens and Lori is forced to decide whether to do the procedure without the respirator or to let Carl die. Ultimately, she agrees to the procedure. At the nick of time, Shane makes it back to the farm with the medical supplies needed for the surgery. Hershel is able to stabilize Carl. Rick helps Hershel break the news about Otis' death to his wife Patricia. Maggie gives Shane Otis' clothes so he can change. In the bathroom, Shane remembers that Otis had pulled his hair out as he was trying to get away. Shane gets a razor and cuts his hair to hide where his hair was pulled.

Trivia & Quotes

Differences from the Source Material

  • Otis survives for at least 11 issues. Shane, on the other hand, never steps foot on Hershel's farm and has never met Otis in the comic series because he dies early on.
