Episode 402 – Infected
This is the second episode of season 4, whence episode 402. The episode starts off with the scene from last week of someone with a flashlight feeding the walkers at the fence a mouse. Then, we cut to the library or someplace like that.
We see Tyrese and his lady friend Karen getting some affection. After some lovidoviness, the Karen walks over to the bathroom where Phineas, aka storybook Patrick is. Of course, she’s by herself and her flashlight stops working. She walks back to the cell block, and leads Patrick back to the cell block.
No one has noticed that Patrick has turned.
Patrick goes in and eats some dude in a cell but no one seems to notice what’s going on. Walker Patrick is just sitting on the ground eating the guy’s heart when the guy wakes up and now we have 2 walkers.
We cut to the tower, and we see Glenn and Maggie. Glenn has decided to take up photography and snaps a shot of Maggie in her sleep.
Carl and Rick are playing farmers and we see Rick holding a handful of worms.
Right after this, we get the general alarm of “Walkers in D” gets called. Our gang rushes in to the D cell block and quickly quells the attack. That’s when they finally realize that it’s an internal issue and not an external break in.
Then they start to realize that there is a sort of flu strain running through the cell blocks that is killing people in a day and everyone has been exposed to it and is potentially infected. They seem to think that the pigs are an infection vector.
Oh yeah, thanks to Carl’s shenanigans, Michonne got hurt. Carl’s shooting came in handy, but still I blame him for Michonne getting hurt.
We get to see the council meeting and they are discussing what to do with the people that are infected. Ironically, or appropriately, they decide to put the infected people in Cell Block A, aka death row.
Little Beth is taking care of Michonne’s ankle while little Judith is sitting on the floor and starts to cry. Michonne seems particularly annoyed with the sound of Judith crying.
Back at the fence, the walkers are almost over the top. That’s when Sasha notices that someone has been feeding the walkers.
Back in the cell block, Carl and Carol are having a talk about what Carol has been teaching the kids during story time. Apparently Carl is having somekind of internal conflict about what Carol is teaching.
Michonne doesn’t want to to hold Judith, but when she finally does, she breaks down and starts to cry.
Back out at the fence, Rick has the brilliant idea to get rid of the pigs by feeding them to the walkers. He and Darryl go outside the fence and lure the walkers away from the fence with the piglets.
After the walker shennanigans, we cut to Rick dismantling the pig pen. He’s burning some of the wood that was used in the coral. Carl tells Rick about Carol teaching the kids how to use weapons etc. and asks Rick to let her keep doing it. Right after they have this talk, Rick gives Carl his gun back puts his gun back on.
Back in Cell block A, Tyrese discovers that his woman has been killed.
That’s when the episode ends.
