The armed men wanted them to leave, so the gang had to find a new place to go. As the women work on Hershel, Daryl holds off the prisoners who want to run Rick & Co. off. Turns out, the prisoners had been in the cafeteria for the past 10 months, and had no clue the zombie apocalypse had begun. Rick schools them on the new world, and then show them the yard.
