When he notices that Carl had stolen a gun from the RV, Shane has a talk with Carl's parents about whether Carl should be trained. Rick and Shane soon that Carl can be trained despite Lori's protests. Glenn tries to duck out of the gun practice by lying that he is going to help Dale. However, Dale is nearby and is able to see through Glenn's lies. He has a talk with Glenn which leads to him revealing that Lori is pregnant and that there are walkers in the barn. Dale brings the issue of the barn to Hershel, but is told to keep quiet about it. Hershel explains that the walkers in the barn are his family and friends and that he is keeping them there until there is a cure.

During the gun practice, Rick and Shane notice that Andrea has some talent for handling a gun. Shane decides to to give her more advance lessons elsewhere. In the woods, Shane begins teaching Andrea to shoot a moving target. He berates her when she can't hit her target. Andrea storms off after Shane brings up her sister.

Suddenly, a horde of walkers attack them. As they fend off the walkers, Andrea is able to learn how to hit a moving target with some guidance from Shane.

When they get back, Dale confronts Shane about the night Otis had died. Shane responds by threatening the old man.

They argue about whether the baby would have a chance in the world, but Rick thinks that they can make it work. He then asks Lori if she is keeping anymore secrets. She tells him that she had a relationship with Shane while he was missing. Ricks tells her he knew about it.

Differences from the Source Material

  • Hershel does not keep the walkers in the barn a secret. He tells Rick this fact himself instead of Glenn.
  • Hershel is less tolerant of the fact that Rick's group has been killing walkers while Rick is less tolerant of the idea that Hershel is holding walkers in his barn. Rick's attitude in the comics is closer to that of Shane's in the TV series.
  • Likewise, Hershel does not approve of the gun training because their bullets could be damaging a neighbor's home. In the comic series, Hershel is even more committed to keeping his neighbors and their possessions intact.
  • No one in Rick's group opens the barn. Instead, the walkers break free when Hershel tries to put a walker into the barn. Lacey, Shawn, and Arnold are killed by the walkers when they try to save their father from the walkers.
  • Sophia does not emerge from the barn because she is never lost.
