Aaron is brought back to the barn where the gang has gathered where Aaron begins his pitch about how he lives in a totally cool place and he’d love them all to join because more people would be awesome. Rick punches him. Because Rick.
Michonne is not impressed, nor is Maggie. Rick searches Aaron’s stuff and finds a flare gun, pointing to him not being alone and, Aaron being conscious again, questions him about his fellows. Aaron rightly concludes it doesn’t matter what he says, Rick will assume he’s lying. Aaron tells them he has one companion and offers to drive them to the community. Rick still doesn’t trust him even as Aaron points out they’re in the most perfectly vulnerable position and if Aaron had a gang of people looking to ambush them, they’d be dead already
Michonne wants to follow it up even as Rick insists Aaron is lying. Michonne says it’s all well and good for rick to be that sure – but she isn’t. Maggie agrees. Rick warns of the danger – but Michonne hits back that passing up a place where they can live, including baby Judith, sounds pretty damn dangerous too. She also doesn’t ask – she makes it clear they need to check it out so that’s what they’re going to do, Glen seconds her. Rick sends Abraham and Rosita with them and organises the rest to spread out so the death trap isn’t so death-trappy; leaving himself with Aaron.
Who still thinks Rick is a good man.
Michonne and co walk and Glen says to shoot anyone they see – but Michonne questions this assumption that everyone is a risk. Though Glen does point out that they’re 5 people with guns, anyone approaching them isn’t friendly. And if they’re people like them, then they’re scary and on that note, glen doesn’t understand why the group would want people like them after what they’ve done. Michonne doesn’t agree at all – they saved a priest, a girl who joined the prisoner and “a crazy lady with a sword”.
As they talk, a man watches them
Back in the barn, Rick wants to feed crying Judith ground up acorns and Aaron offers a stash of apple sauce he brought (to prove they have apples). Rick is super paranoid and sure that Aaron wants to work a diabolical scheme involving poisoned babies and have brought apple sauce for just such an occasion! He forces Aaron to eat some of it despite his protests before feeding his baby.
This is a world that encourages caution. But this level of paranoia isn’t remotely reasonable.
Michonne fine an RV full of supplies and co run into a pack of Walkers and it shows a lot that they all pull guns when they hear a noise – then put them away when it’s walkers. It’s like “oh just more silly zombies.” Rosita and Abraham kill them then have a moment together – with Abraham especially trying to rebuild their relationship after he lost it on Eugene.
