This episode started like how it ended last week. The walkers at the fence were being teased and fed a live rat by a mysterious person with a flashlight hiding their identity.
It's still nighttime, and Tyreese and Karen tried to have an intimate moment together but they were both still distracted by Zach's death the day before. These people were no longer acquaintances, Tyreese thought out loud, as they might be the only people left. Karen was very understanding even when Tyreese started to sing. They shared a kiss before she went off to bed.
Alone in the communal bathroom with only a flashlight, Karen was startled by a noise and started to investigate. Not finding anything, she chalked it up to her imagination and calmly walked out of the bathroom. In the dark, a figure that we all knew was the fallen Patrick rose up hissing.
Karen made it back to her cell and went to bed while walker Patrick followed her from the bathroom. Passing by Karen's cell, walker Patrick stumbled into another cell and started feasting on its sleeping inhabitant, biting into his throat and preventing him from screaming out loud.
Title sequence plays.
When we came back, walker Patrick was having a field day rummaging through his victim's guts.
Somewhere else in the prison, Rick was tending to Judith when the 6am alarm rang to wake Carl. Beth came to take Judith.
Walker Patrick was done with his feast and strolled out of the cell when his victim turned, got up and followed.
