On one of their rounds to check on the sick, Hershel and Glenn find Mr. Jacobson dead from the flu. Anticipating reanimation, Glenn prepares to stab his head but is then stopped by Hershel, who advises to do it out of eyesight from the other sick prison members, for the sake of group morale. Lizzie Samuels comes and asks them what they're doing. Hershel replies that they're "taking Mr. Jacobson to a quieter place", and he and Glenn continue taking the body out of Cell Block A by using a gurney. Shortly after, Jacobson reanimates and is then stabbed in the head by Glenn.
