Armed with a spear, David is out along the perimeter fence taking out walkers. Part of a group consisting of Karen, Henry, Chloe, and another man, they work methodically as a team to put down walkers and spread out any groups.


David is in the cell with Karen while ensuring the children's safety from the oncoming walkers.

Afterwards, it's revealed David is suffering from the same flu-like symptoms as Karen. This causes the council to move both David and Karen over to a separate cell block as a precaution against them infecting any other prison survivors with the virus.
