A herd of zombies attacks the prison while Rick’s group is separated. With the generators running, The Prison alarms are blaring and attracting walkers from all over the countryside. The groups consist of: Rick, Daryl, Glenn, seeking out the generators with the help of inmates Axel and Oscar; Hershel and Beth locked into a cage for their safety; T-Dog and Carol, running for their lives; and Lori, Carl, and Maggie also running for their lives.
The first to die is T-Dog. He suffers a walking bite to the shoulder. In an act of bravery he sticks with Carol, determined to get her to safety. The bite is a one way ticket on its own, but the way he dies is truly gruesome. With the route ahead blocked by walkers, T-Dog runs full steam ahead managing to knock back the walkers and open a brief window for Carol to escape.
The second death comes towards the end of the episode. Lori goes into labor and attempts to deliver the baby. At first it appears she might be able to deliver without a cesarean, but then she begins bleeding profusely. With no way to stop the labor or get help, Lori comes to a decision. Maggie must cut the baby out of her. Lori accepts that she will die in the process. With Carl looking on, Maggie cuts the baby from Lori’s body. Lori dies in the process. In a very emotional sequence, Carl decides he should be the one to put the bullet in his Mother’s brain to prevent her from coming back and we flash to season two when Rick and Carl were sitting in the barn and Rick told his son “No more kids stuff. People are going to die.”
The end of the episode is absolutely heart wrenching. Rick and his group arrive at the separate part of the courtyard from Maggie, Carl, and the Baby. As they draw closer it becomes more and more evident what has transpired and Rick begins to absolutely lose it. It is a stunning portrayal of grief by Andrew Lincoln and will reach through the screen and squeeze the ever-loving tears right out of your eyeballs.
