Rick is trying to manage the community in order to survive, but realises the more people you are letting in, the more problems you have to deal with. While dealing with Carl's injury, he has an emotional breakdown behind the scenes and bonds with a certain someone.
The survivors also learn that they aren't the only community out there, and that there may be hope in getting more food and supplies after all...
