Glenn and Tyreese, who were watching Thomas, decide to lock him in the freezer that the inmates had previously been using as a bathroom, in order to "Put the waste with the waste" as Glenn explains. Rick reminds them that the freezer is air tight so he will suffocate, and they remove him to be taken to the cell block.
Later, Patricia frees Thomas, believing him to be just a sick man that needs help, but he then attempts to kill her. During the brief struggle, Patricia manages to call for help, and scratches Thomas' face, freeing herself. Unseen, Glenn and Maggie approach from behind, and Maggie unloads six rounds from her pistol into Thomas's back. Maggie confesses to the gathered survivors, "Now I feel a little better", and the survivors proceed to the main gate of the prison.
Hershel requests that Thomas' body be thrown to the zombies to be torn apart and eaten. The issue closes with Rick being disarmed and threatened by Dexter, Andrew, and Patricia at gunpoint. Dexter then tells Rick's group of survivors to leave the prison.
