"Rest in Peace"[]

On a riverbank just outside of the Civic Republic of Philadelphia, Rick, wearing an Alliance of the Three jacket and armed with a Kill Stick, sits on a log and writes his letter before packing his iPhone into his bag. Putting his message in a bottle, Rick throws into it into the river, only to panic when he hears the sound of a CRM helicopter nearby. Rick throws the bag containing his belongings onto Boat 672 which is beached nearby and where Michonne and Virgil would later find them. Addressing Rick as Consignee Grimes, the CRM pilot orders him to surrender. Rick angrily uses his kill stick to put down a walker buried in the riverbank. "Come on, Rick. It's like he told you. There's no escape for the living," urges the pilot. Rick raises his arms in surrender with a smirk on his face.
