Issue 75 is the seventy-fifth issue of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and the third part of Volume 13: Too Far Gone. It was originally published on July 21, 2010.

Plot Synopsis

After Gabriel has approached Douglas about evicting Rick's group from Alexandria for doing horrible things before reaching the safety of the Alexandria Safe-Zone, Douglas turns him away. He insists that everyone did what they had to survive, including Alexandria itself in the past, and that Gabriel should mind his own business and leave.

Heath and Glenn continue to wait for the zombies to clear out of the roadway, spending the night on top of a building in hopes that they will clear out by morning, with Heath expressing concern for his friend Scott. Glenn notes that the zombies are grouping together for seemingly no reason, something neither he not Heath have ever seen.

One night while on patrol, Rick finds Peter Anderson sleeping on the porch of his house and Pete tells Rick about having arguments with his wife. Rick tells him to sleep inside, appearing friendly, but appears suspicious that all is not well in their household.

Heath and Glenn wake up in the morning, and unfortunately the road is still overrun. They discover the reason the roamers were grouping together was due to another group trapped inside of a store. Heath wants to leave while the roamers are distracted, but Glenn doesn't want the other group to spot them, as they could be potentially dangerous. They look on in horror as a group of men emerge from a building and sacrifice one of their own to the zombie crowd in order to escape.

During lunch break, Rick tells Michonne about how he doesn't like Pete, as there is something off about him. Michonne encourages him to investigate. Rick approaches Peter's wife, Jessie, to find out if domestic abuse is happening. Though Jessie is reluctant at first, she eventually confirms that Pete has been changing and has become increasingly violent. Jessie starts playing it off, saying it's mostly her fault but Rick tries to convince her otherwise. Just then, Pete walks into the room and is surprised to find Rick in their house. Rick and Jessie pretend to be scheduling a play date for Carl and Ron. Rick then leaves the Anderson residence, visibly angry.

Glenn and Heath are looting a pharmacy when a roamer appears behind Glenn. Heath shoots it, and instructs Glenn to hurry as they have about a minute before more roamers start arriving.

Rick meets Douglas in the graveyard. He brings his suspicions about Pete to the leader, and Douglas doesn't seem surprised, yet is reluctant to act on the information due to Pete being a surgeon. Rick is furious with Douglas, assuring him that he will do what needs to be done. Douglas asks what he means by that, and Rick replies that he knows what men like Pete are capable of and sees only two options: exile or death. He storms off to the Anderson residence once more.

That night, Rick confronts Pete at his home and it descends into violence, with Rick and Pete crashing through his house window. The commotion causes several people to come running over. Douglas tries to intervene, but Rick pulls a gun on him, exclaiming he'd do anything to keep Alexandria safe, making the hard decisions no one else can make. Before anything comes of it, Michonne hits Rick over the head and orders the others to get his gun.
