T-Dog alerts the survivors from the incoming herd (indirectly led by Guillermo and Merle) and Dale insists the RV doesn't have the enough fuel, but they can use it to hide while the herd pass.
Days after the herd moved on, the group is in the RV still making it's way to a supposed "Safe Zone" in wich the cure was being looked for the zombie outbreak, after they stop in a giant building they are received by a man named Edwin Jenner, the man allows them to get in and asks if they "are contamined", after saying no. Jenner lets them get into his lab. However Rick asks Lori to keep Sophia and Carl away from the CDC claiming it maybe won't be what it seems to, so he warns Glenn and Charlie to keep an eye on the guys outside, and gives them guns to protects them if something goes wrong.
Once in the CDC, Rick asks how he makes the sistem work, to wich Jenner replies that it never worked by electric source, but rather by a generator, after that, Jenner coments on their smell, and that they should take a bath, Edwin jokes about Daryl's smell by saying that with that smell walkers wouldn't notice him, Rick wonders what Jenner means by that, to wich he replies that walkers don't attack each other, and the reason is smell, Rick asks how he knows that and Edwin confesses he learned all these things from nineteen "test subjects" and he proceds to show the group a video about the walkers.
After Jenner has explained all the 18 test subjects have been explored Rick asks about the "TS-19" to wich Jenner replies by saying "better watch it yourselves" and plays the last video about his wife, how she died, and how she donated her body in hope of finding a cure, however she reanimated and Edwin had to put her down, after that an automatic regressive count starts planing the CDC to explode, Rick, Carol and Daryl protest on Jenner to let them go, while Lori, Andrea and Jacqui stay in shock, Rick pleases to having a son outside and Andrea states that she does not want Sophia to die like that.

After narrowly escaping from the Center for Disease Control, Rick Grimes and the rest of the group decide to leave Atlanta for good. The city is firmly in the hands of the walkers, and they decide to give Shane's idea of finding refuge at the army base at Fort Benning a try. Before leaving, Rick attempts to contact Morgan Jones one last time about the city. He urges him to stay away for him and his son’s safety.
Rick tells the non-responsive walkie-talkie about his fears for the rest of the group, what happened at the CDC, and how hard he's trying not to lose faith, even in the face of people "opting out". He sputters, changing his mind before telling Morgan what Jenner whispered in his ear at the CDC - information that clearly weighs on him.
"Just be safe," Rick tells him. "Maybe we'll see you at Fort Benning someday."
As the group prepares for their journey, Shane Walsh stares longingly at Rick's family. The group abandons some of the vehicles in their convoy, bringing just the RV, Carol's Cherokee, and Daryl Dixon's motorcycle (which belonged to his brother, Merle).
With Carol, Sophia, and Carl in the backseat of the Cherokee, the drive brings back fond memories for Lori and Rick of a trip to the Grand Canyon when Carl was a baby. They never made it, Lori explains, since Carl got sick, so they turned around and drove home. "I never knew a baby could throw up so much," Rick states with a laugh. Carl and Sophia ask to be taken to see the Grand Canyon one day.
The convoy has come upon a traffic problem with hundreds of abandoned vehicles, filled with rotting corpses, blocking the roads. On his brother's motorcycle, Daryl leads them through a snaked out path that was likely carved through by other survivors. Glenn nervously points out a highway overpass a few miles back, but Dale dismisses it. "We can't spare the fuel," he tells him.
The group nervously crawls through the wreckage, with no way to know what sort of dangers lurk within. The situation worsens when the RV's radiator hose breaks down again. This forces the group to stop altogether - their cars are trapped.
"If you can't find a radiator hose here..." Shane points out, and the group realizes that they can scavenge the vehicles along the highway for supplies. "We could siphon more fuel from these cars, for a start," says T-Dog; "Maybe some water?" Carol asks. Lori is quick to point out that this traffic snarl is a graveyard. "I don't know how I feel about this," she says slowly. Silently, they agree the supplies are very important, and Shane announces, "Gather what you can, y'all."
Dale enlists Glenn with fixing the radiator hose. "Sometimes the points get corroded," he says, handing him the proper screwdriver. "Radiator hose clamp is always a flat-head," he tells him.
Rick takes watch with a rifle behind the RV while Dale climbs to his post on the roof. Andrea heads back inside the RV to try to put together Shane's gun after half-searching through a few cars.
Lori, Carol, Carl, and Sophia look through cars further up the highway.
Dale and Rick catch sight of a walker heading towards them through the traffic snarl. Rick raises his gun to shoot, but his focus shifts to a second walker coming up behind the first. By the time he has both square in his sights, there's a third - but he quickly realizes there are a lot more than that. He runs forward, in a forced whisper telling Lori, Carl, and Sophia to get under the cars. On her way down, Lori grabs Carol. They watch together in helpless silence as their kids wait out the sudden danger by themselves.
Underneath a car further up the highway, Rick is calmly keeping Carl, Sophia, Lori, and Carol in his sights as the herd passes.
The group is almost safe when a few stragglers find Sophia hiding underneath the car. Scared, she flees down a ditch to the nearby woods. Rick sees her and follows her.
Chased by two walkers, Sophia stumbles, but Rick gets to her before they do. "Shoot them!" Sophia cries, grabbing for Rick's gun. He refuses as he doesn't want to risk shooting them and drawing even more walkers in to the woods.
Instead, he grabs Sophia and takes her under a creek bed. He tells her he's going to draw the walkers away. "If I don't come back, run back to the highway. Keep the sun on your left shoulder," he tells her before chasing after the walkers.
Using a rock, he's able to kill the walkers, hand-to-hand one at a time.He returns to the creek bed and takes Sophia back to the camp, and discover the herd has passed, they regroup and enter to the RV ready to leave, but Rick points that there are five missing members (Mike,Terry,Michonne,Andre and Jacqui).
Lori goes to comment to Rick Summer is gone, Rick checks on the RV to find Summer is really gone, Rick asks Andrea about Summer but she denies to answer, Dale mentions Summer went out of the RV and that there was nothing he could do, Rick decides to go chase her, Shane and Carl join him as well.
In the camp, Rick and Shane are still looking for Summer when Carl alerts his dad about how he saw Summer and she ran away, before going chasing her, a gunshot is heards and Rick looks over Carl to find him lying in the ground.
Rick runs with Shane and Otis through a field, he carries a shot and unconscious Carl in his arms. Otis tells Rick to keep running in this direction and he will find a farm, and he has to talk to a man named Hershel Greene. After Rick reaches the farm, Hershel and his daughters put Carl on a bed and start to give him medical treatment. After explaining everything that happened, Rick decides he needs to get to Lori, to tell her what has happened, but Hershel's daughter Maggie volunteers to find her and bring her to the farm instead. After removing one of the bullet fragments from Carl, Hershel informs that he needs medical supplies so he can remove the remaining fragments and close the bleeding, or Carl will soon die from blood loss. Rick volunteers to find the necessary supplies, but is replaced by Shane, who tells Rick that he needs to stay put for Carl. Otis also volunteers to go with Shane, trying to redeem himself to Rick and Carl. Later on, Rick and Hershel are having a conversation about the apocalypse, when Maggie arrives with Lori, who is shocked to see her son lying in a bed unconscious from a gunshot. Rick apologizes for letting this happen. After calming down, Rick and Lori have a conversation with Hershel about his experience to perform the surgery on Carl, but they are shocked when Hershel reveals that he is actually an veterinarian.
Having a discussion with Lori about their situation, Lori wonders whether Carl should even live, saying that it's better for him to leave this world instead of watching more people die, while Rick becomes deeply upset and wants a future for his son. They are happy when Carl finally awakens but soon goes into a seizure and their fear returns. Hershel gives them an ultimatum, Carl doesn't have more time left and they need to perform the surgery urgently.
Rick discusses with Hershel the fact they need supplies and the chance of the group staying at the farm, Hershel denies saying that there's where he keeps the dead ones, later one while Arnold and Lacey track Summer, they reveal what they keep on the barn.
Rick, Lacey and Arnold talk with Shane about the walkers he keeps in the barn, ater on he is present when Andrea shoots Daryl and takes him to Hershel's aids, later on he along Shane confront Hershel about the walkers and as Shane opens the barn and the group kills walkers, and meet the demise of Lacey, Shawn and Arnold Greene.
