Plot Summary

After a long winter of searching through houses, the group finds a prison. They clear the yard of walkers and they make their way into the C block of the prison. After clearing that block of walkers, they settle down in there. The next day, Rick and the others decide to push ahead through the prison to secure the area and find supplies. The group is separated when a mob of walkers forces them to flee. In the confusion, Hershel is bitten by a walker. The group soon find each other and head to the cafeteria. Trapped inside the room, Rick is forced to amputate Hershel's leg so he can survive. Suddenly, they are spotted by survivors in the prison. Meanwhile, Andrea and Michonne take shelter in a deer cooler. Andrea tells Michonne to leave her behind, Michonne refuses. In the end, they are forced to leave their shelter before a group of walkers close in on them.

Differences from the Source Material

Andrea and Dale discover the prison while looking for food instead of Rick. Herhsel's leg does not get amputated in the comics. In the comics, Allen is bitten and is forced to amputate his leg while Rick and his group are clearing A-block.
