Arc Advancement


  • Michonne had actually drawn up a charter for the communities. Tara managed to get a hold of it and gives it to Ezekiel. He hope that it will be signed at the fair.
  • It's shown that the Whisperers live among the walkers by remaining quiet and have no compunctions about abandoning children who make too much noise.
  • Connie successfully rescues a baby left behind by the Whisperers and appears to be adopted by Earl and Tammy.
  • Henry knows something Daryl did at Alexandria to help when things got bad.
  • When Henry leaves for Lydia, Daryl goes out to find him with Connie insisting on coming along.


  • Jerry and Nabila have three children together.
  • While initially reluctant, Daryl agrees to give Lydia back in exchange for Alden and Luke.
  • Henry hides Lydia to keep her from having to return, but when found, she gives herself up and kisses Henry.
  • Lydia notes to Henry that Alpha is breaking her own rules in her efforts to get her back. When they're reunited, Lydia is slapped for referring to her as "mother" before hugging her and insisting that she call her Alpha "like all the rest."
  • Alden and Luke are returned.

Memorable Moments

  • As the dead are drawn to the cries of a Whisperer's child, Alpha does nothing but shrug as the mother subsequently places the baby on the ground and leaves it for the walkers.


  • Alpha: To live with the dead means to live in silence. If the mother can't quieten the child then the dead will. Natural selection.
