Flashback

Michonne imagines seeing her daughters lying dead in the middle of nothingness, blood pouring from their heads. She opens her eyes. She is on a sailboat in the middle of the ocean.

2 Weeks Earlier

Michonne looks over at the rest of the crew, who is gathered at the other end of the boat. Oak walks up to her.

Oak: Hope you're not thinkin' about jumping. 'Cause if you do, I'm gonna have to come in after you. Not looking forward to that. Water's gonna be an ice bath.

Michonne: Really? You'd come after me?

Oak: You're one of us now. And I can't be the only brains around here.

Michonne: I just needed some space.

Oak: You're gonna need a bigger boat.

Michonne: No one wants to see that, Oak.

Oak: Yeah, I know.

Michonne says nothing.

Oak takes a drink from the mug he's holding and shivers.

Oak: Brr! Freezing my ass off. Here. (offers cup to Michonne) Coffee'll warm you up. Go on. You'll be glad you did.

Michonne takes the cup and has a sip of coffee, then spits it out and coughs.

Michonne: Goddamn, Oak! (hands cup back to Oak) You can't call it coffee when more than half's whiskey.

Oak: Ahh, you sound like my ex-wife. She was more of a rum girl.

Michonne: Nah, I'm good.

Oak: Your loss. (pours whiskey into his cup and takes a sip) Mmm... Coffee.

Oak: (pours whiskey into his cup and takes a sip) Mmm... Coffee.

Berto: Hey, Siddiq, did you hear the one about the kittens who took over the boat?

Siddiq: What? Oh, no! Berto, no!

Berto: It was a mewtiny! (laughs)

Siddiq: Berto, just stop it now, okay? I'm warning you...

Pete: Goddamn, man.

Oak: I despised the lot of them when I first got on board, but they grow on you. Like mold, they are. No, no, sorry. That's shit, isn't it?

Michonne: We're just a crew. Not friends, not family.

Oak: That's how it started for me too. Give it time.

Michonne: They're growing on me too. Kinda nice that people can still joke around.

Oak: It's a fine line between the court jester and the village idiot. You can guess which side I think he's on.

Michonne: How long does it take?

Oak: What, to warm to them? I'd say it takes one year, three weeks, and six days.

Oak: We worry about you, you know.

Oak: Before I joined up with Pete, my brother and I were cooped up in an old canning factory. Food for ages. Lotta fat and happy people. Then...a young girl got...taken. We followed her trail--wasn't hard with all the blood--ended up cornering the people who took her in this warehouse. All ten of us went in. Only I came out.

Michonne: Why'd you go after her?

Oak: Because back then I still thought I could make a difference. After my brother...I just wanna make it through another day.

Michonne: I would've gone in alone.

Oak: If I had another chance--I wouldn't have gone in at all. After my brother...

Michonne: You did the right thing.

Oak: And it got my brother killed. The right thing can kiss my arse.

Michonne says nothing.

Oak: Few weeks later, I came across Pete, a ways up the coast. He saw that look on my face and he offered me a job. Didn't ask any questions. Didn't turn me away. Just welcomed me in. Pete's a good goddamn egg in a rotten world.

Michonne: I don't always get Pete, but I'm glad people like him still exist.

Oak: I'll drink to that.

Michonne: Pete shouldn't be so trusting. People will always let you down.

Oak: Not always, Michonne.

Michonne: I know you think Pete walks on water, but he makes mistakes too.

Oak: Like what?

Michonne: Hiring you.

Oak: (laughs) Well, too late now. (laughs again)

Michonne says nothing.

Oak: Well. I think Berto's little routine is winding down, so we can finally play cards. Care to join us? It'd be nice to have you there. Besides, none of us can remember the rules. So it'll be the most...uh...unique game of Go Fish you've ever played.

Michonne: Yeah, deal me in.

Oak: Sounds like a challenge. You might regret it when I win that machete of yours.

Michonne joins the others.

Michonne: Thanks, but I'm good here.

Oak: Alright, we'll make room just in case. Just know that you don't have to play solitaire all the time.

Oak walks away.

Oak: You've got a hell of a poker face, Michonne. We'll make room in case you wanna put it to good use.

Oak walks away.

Oak will remember that.

Garage

Paige: Are you sure you wanna do this?

Sam: I need to see him. I need to see that bastard's face.

Paige opens the garage door. She, Sam, and Michonne enter.

Randall: Well, hey there, Michonne. Sam. I knew you couldn't stay away.

Sam: Don't fucking talk to me.

Sam kicks Randall in the ribs several times. Paige grabs her and holds her back, but she continues to kick him.

Paige: Sam, stop!

Pete: Easy, alright? Jesus...

Paige: Little help here! Please, I need a hand.

Michonne pushes Sam backward.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: Hey! Let go of me!

Paige releases Sam.

Paige: Thank you.

Sam: Why did you stop me?! What are you--why are you protecting him? You know what he did.

TBC

TBC

Michonne: You should be better than that, Sam. Don't be like him.

Randall: Or like you? Just stating the obvious here.

TBC

Michonne pulls Paige away.

Paige: What the--let go of me!

Paige will remember that.

Sam kicks Randall a few more times.

Paige: What the hell?! I'm just trying to help. We can't have this guy more damaged than he already is. She could've killed him.

TBC

Michonne: Sam clearly needed it. Feel better?

Sam: Not until he's dead.

Randall: When I get out of here, I'll do a lot more than break a few of your ribs. Ugh. Fuck.

Michonne: He deserves a lot worse.

Sam: Yeah. He does.

Randall: When I get out of here, I'll do a lot more than break a few of your ribs. Ugh. Fuck.

TBC

Sam: Let go of me!

Paige pulls Sam backward and releases her.

Sam: Why did you stop me?!

Randall: (laughs) What's funny is you think me and my sister are the bad ones. But you're the one burned down our home, forced our people onto shore to be easy pickin's for the walkers. Families. Kids. Never did shit to you. Didn't stop to think about all the lives you were screwing up. All the shit they had to leave behind.

Pete: Ignore him, Michonne.

Randall: Probably burned beyond recognition now. You did that.

Michonne punches Randall.

Pete: Michonne!

Randall: I'm not upsetting you, am I?

(If Michonne climbed the ladder.)

Michonne: You better keep your mouth shut.

Randall: I'm not upsetting you, am I?

Sam: You're the murderer. Not her.

(If Michonne entered through the window.)

Michonne: I saw what you did to the people on the Mobjack. You murdered all those children, so don't lecture me.

Randall: Get your facts straight, Michonne. Those folks came after us first.

Michonne: That was an accident.

Randall: Tell that to the parents who lost their kids.

Pete: He's only trying to piss you off.

Randall: I'm not upsetting you, am I?

Sam: You're the murderer. Not her.

Sam: You're done talking. You're the one who should be dead!

Paige: Oh, god. He's dead.

Pete: I should have stopped you. How could you do this? That man was tied up. Defenseless. You're better than this.

Paige: How could you? If he's dead...so are we.

Michonne: He got what he deserved.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: I knew I shouldn't have left you alone with him.

Paige will remember that.

Paige: Norma's not gonna care why you did it.

(If Michonne kept Pete.)

Michonne: He talked about my kids.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: So you killed him.

(If Michonne let Pete go.)

TBC

(If Michonne kept Pete around.)

TBC

(If Michonne let Pete go.)

TBC

TBC

Sam: I wanted this...I did, but seeing him now... I wish I had been the one to do it.

Paige: Sam...

Sam: It was my dad...my family... I should have killed Randall myself.

Michonne: I didn't do it for you. I wanted to kill him.

Sam: Well, as long as you got what you wanted, right?

(If Sam killed Zachary.)

TBC

(If Sam didn't kill Zachary.)

Michonne: You're not a killer, Sam. Don't become one.

Sam: You don't know what I am.

TBC

Michonne says nothing.

Sam kicks Randall's body.

Paige: Sam, calm down--

Sam: My dad isn't even in the fucking ground yet and you want me to calm down?!

Paige: I...I didn't mean--

Sam: He ruined everything! He killed--

Paige: I know. I know.

Sam: You don't know!

Norma: (over radio) Pick up, Michonne.

Pete: (over radio) Pick up, Michonne.

Michonne: Wait... You hear that?

Norma: (over radio) Answer me. Now.

Pete: (over radio) Michonne, it's Pete. Please pick up. Something's happened.

Michonne picks up the radio.

Norma: (over radio) Michonne! You don't want to keep me waiting.

Randall: You tryin' to piss her off?

Michonne: (over radio) I'm right here.

Norma: (over radio) Good.

Michonne: (over radio) Calm the fuck down.

Norma: (over radio) You should change your fucking tone.

Michonne: (over radio) What do you want?

Norma: (over radio) Oh, you're gonna want to hear this.

Randall: Can't keep quiet forever.

Norma: (over radio) Enough of this silent treatment.

Norma: (over radio) You might be sittin' pretty, thinking you have the upper hand. But your luck has changed.

Siddiq: (over radio) Michonne, it's Siddiq. They got the rest of the crew too; Oak and Berto. Look, whatever this bitch asks, don't--

Pete: Siddiq!

Pete: (over radio) I don't have much time.

Randall: Aww. Your buddy misses you. Cute.

Pete: (over radio) We need to talk.

TBC

Michonne: (over radio) I'm right here.

Pete: (over radio) Thank god.

Michonne: (over radio) Pete! Are you okay?

Pete: (over radio) I'm fine.

Pete: (over radio) God, I hope you're listening.

Pete: (over radio) There's something you have to know. Norma and her people... They--they have the crew. Siddiq, Oak, Berto.

Norma: (over radio) Don't worry--they're all in good hands here. But them stayin' that way is up to you, so listen closely... I'm willing to trade: my brother for your friends. But anything you do to Randall, I'll do to them. Do you understand?

Norma: (over radio) I'll see how badly you hurt him.

Pete: Look, you don't owe me anything...but please... We have to get them back.

Pete: (over radio) Look, you don't owe us anything. I just want to keep them safe...

Norma: (over radio) That's my deal, Michonne.

Pete: Just do what she says.

Norma: (over radio) Got it?

Michonne: (over radio) I understand.

Norma will remember that.

Norma: (over radio) That's what I like to hear.

(If Michonne answered the radio/talked to Norma.)

Michonne: (over radio) Calm down. Randall is doing just fine.

Randall: Oh, fuckin' really?

Norma will remember that.

Norma: (over radio) That's what I like to hear.

(If Michonne didn't answer the radio or let Randall answer.)

TBC

Michonne: (over radio) That goes both ways. Anything you do to them, I'll do to Randall.

Norma will remember that.

Norma: (over radio) You better not touch him!

Norma: (over radio) Do you understand?!

Pete: (over radio) She understands.

Paige: You're not gonna say anything?

Norma: (over radio) We'll be there by sunrise. Be ready for us.

Randall reanimates as a walker.

Paige: Shit...

Randall: (laughs) So...what do you think's gonna happen next? (laughs again)

Paige pushes walker Randall, his hands bound, into a chair and ties him to it.

Michonne: She's coming here for her brother, and once she sees what we did to him...

Paige puts a bag over Randall's head.

Paige: At least he can walk...right?

Sam: If you can call that walking.

Pete: Let's just hope she doesn't take it out on my guys.

Paige: Norma wants her brother... It's not like there's another option here.

Michonne: The bag helps...a little.

Pete: She's gonna want to see his face.

Paige: Maybe we can stall her...

Paige: Might be enough to stall her.

Sam: And then what?

Michonne: We just need to fool Norma long enough to get my friends back.

Sam: Then what?

Michonne: This better work.

Paige: It will... I think.

Pete: It's risky.

Sam: Even if it does work, then what?

TBC

Sam leaves, followed by the other two.

House

Paige pushes Randall, his hands bound, into a chair and ties him to it.

Randall: (laughs) What? There somethin' on my face?

Paige: The bruises aren't so bad...right?

Paige puts a bag over Randall's head.

Randall: I'm pretty sure she'll notice the fingers.

Sam: Shut up.

Paige: Maybe it won't matter.

Pete: This has to work.

Randall: Keep on hoping if you want.

Michonne: Norma's not gonna be happy when she sees him like this.

Paige: Then we don't let her see him.

Pete: How long do you think we can keep that up?

Paige: I don't know. I've never done this before.

TBC

Michonne: It could be worse, you know. At least he's not dead.

Michonne: We'll get our friends back alive.

Sam: That's if Norma keeps her word.

TBC

Michonne: That bag'll help cover his injuries. Some of them, at least.

Pete: She's gonna want to see his face.

Paige: Maybe we can stall her...

Paige: Might be enough to stall her.

Sam: And then what?

Michonne says nothing.

Sam: The minute you hand him over, she's gonna take that bag off his head. What then?

Randall: (laughs) You all have no idea what you're in for.

Sam: He's right.

Sam leaves the room, and the others follow her.

Sam: Norma's not gonna leave us alone. She won't stop just because we gave her her brother back.

Sam: Sure, you kept him alive, but we still burned all their shit...

Sam: Even if he was alive, we still burned all their shit...

Paige: So we run. After you trade for your friends, we haul ass to the back gate and get the hell out of here.

Sam: But she'd take the house.

Paige: Let her have it!

Pete: Wouldn't she expect us to run?

Paige: So what?

Paige: She knows where we are now. Hiding isn't an option. So let's just go.

Sam: Stop.

Michonne: It might work.

Paige: We just have to be quick. The minute your guys are inside, we're out of here.

Michonne: It's not gonna be that easy, Paige. If we run, they'll chase us.

Paige: But maybe we get away. If we stay here, there's no chance we get out of this alive.

Michonne: Where do you propose we go?

Paige: I don't know. Does it matter? Anywhere would be better than here.

Paige: We just have to be quick. The minute your guys are inside, we're out of here.

Sam: I can't fucking listen to this.

Paige: W--wha--?

Sam walks away.

Michonne: Sam, come back here!

Michonne: Sam, where are you going?

Michonne: We're not done here.

Paige: Sam...

Sam leaves the house. Paige and Michonne turn to follow her.

Pete: I'll watch him.

Outside

Paige and Michonne follow Sam outside.

Paige: Sam!

Sam drags John's corpse across the courtyard.

Michonne: Sam, what the hell are you doing?

Michonne: Sam, stop! You're going to hurt yourself.

Michonne: Sam, where are you taking him?

Michonne says nothing.

Sam loses her grip and stumbles backward, falling to the ground and losing her sling.

Sam: Goddamn it!

Paige: Sam, stop!

Paige helps Sam get up, but she then shrugs her away.

Sam: Maybe you're all ready to walk away, but I'm not just gonna leave him like this! (cries) We couldn't give my mom a real funeral. My dad and I...had to bury her here. Just the two of us. He'd want to be with her. That's all I can give him.

Sam continues dragging John's body toward the grave.

Michonne: I understand. He should be buried with your mom.

Paige: But we can't focus on that right now.

Michonne: We don't have time for this. Not with Norma coming.

Michonne: There will be time to bury him later. Right now, we need to focus on Norma.

Paige: Sam, come on.

Paige: We have to be ready to leave.

Sam: I'm not going.

Paige: What? Sam, you can't still be thinking--

Sam: My mom is here, Paige! Everything I have of her, and Greg... If you wanna leave, go ahead! But I'm not coming with you!

Paige walks away, and Sam sinks to her knees.

Sam: Shit. (sobs)

Michonne turns around and hallucinates her daughters lying dead on the ground. She blinks, and when she opens her eyes she sees things as they actually are.

Sam: I'm sorry... But I--I can't go. This house meant everything to my dad. It's all I have left. I'm not just gonna abandon it.

Michonne: I won't force you to leave. If you want to stay, that's up to you.

Sam: You don't have to leave either. We can defend this house. We can fight them off.

Michonne: So what happens when Norma comes?

Sam: We fight. With everything we have.

Michonne: I know you don't want to, but leaving might be your only option. It isn't safe here anymore.

Sam: I know, but...I--I can't just give up. We can fight. We can defend this house.

Sam: I hope you're with me.

Sam: (gets up) No matter what happens...thank you. I owe you my life. Sorry it took me so long to say it.

Sam starts dragging John's corpse again.

Sam: Come on.

Michonne grabs John's other arm.

Sam will remember this.

They drag John's corpse over to the patch of dirt, and Sam picks up a shovel.

Sam: I know it's stupid... (starts digging) But I have to finish this.

Michonne puts her hand on Sam's arm.

Michonne: Sam, stop.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: Please.

Sam sobs and gives up. Michonne reaches toward her, but she smacks her hand away.

Sam: Maybe I can't help him... But I'm not gonna let Norma take the rest of my family from me.

Sam goes to the garage and picks up a hammer and board.

Sam sobs and gives up. Michonne reaches toward her, but she smacks her hand away.

Sam: Maybe I can't help him... But I'm not gonna let Norma take the rest of my family from me.

Sam goes to the garage and picks up a hammer and board.

Sam: I've got some weapons stashed in my room. Old duffel bag...should look familiar. You should make sure everyone's armed before Norma gets here.

Michonne: Yeah.

Michonne enters the house.

House

Michonne hallucinates seeing Colette near the duffel bag, but realizes that it's actually James. She walks up to him and realizes he is holding a pistol.

James: I was just... Wanted to know what it felt like... I wasn't gonna shoot it. Just...

Michonne: Careful. You don't want to shoot yourself.

Michonne: You don't need that gun, James.

James: I hope you're right.

Michonne: And? How does it feel?

James: It's heavy.

Michonne says nothing.

Michonne sets the duffel bag on the bed and sits down. She takes out a gun and checks the magazine.

Michonne: Empty.

Michonne fills the magazine with bullets. James sits next to her.

James: Can I help? I want to do something.

Michonne: I don't know if that's such a good idea.

James will remember that.

James: Okay.

Michonne: Sure, go ahead. (passes magazine to James) Those slide in there. Round side forward.

James will remember that.

James starts loading the magazines.

James: Never mind.

James: How could they just...die like that? Greg and Dad... I thought we were safe here. What am I supposed to do?

TBC

Michonne: You have to be smart. That's how you survive.

James: My dad was the smartest guy I knew. That didn't save him.

Michonne: Everyone gets scared sometimes.

James: I'm not afraid.

Michonne says nothing.

Greg: The guy who did it...who killed my dad... He's gotta... I mean... The things he said... The way he was laughing about Dad. He can't get away with it.

(If Randall is alive.)

TBC

(If Randall is dead.)

Michonne: Randall is dead, James. I killed him.

Michonne: You want to hurt him. Don't you? Careful. Feelings like that can get you in trouble.

(If Randall is alive.)

Michonne: We have to give Randall back to his sister, James.

(If Randall is dead.)

Michonne: He's...our best chance of surviving.

James: He can't.

James: I heard you guys talking. There's more people coming...to the house. Sam's hurt. If...if she... They can't hurt her too. We have to stop them.

Michonne: Your sister will be with me. I'll make sure she's safe.

Michonne: Sam needs you right now. Go. Help her.

Michonne: Your sister's tough. I wouldn't worry about her too much.

James: She can't...go away too.

James: Here. (hands gun to Michonne) I--I don't know if I'm ready... You know, to have one.

Michonne: Don't forget what I told you...

TBC

Michonne: Play it smart and you'll be fine.

Michonne: It's okay to be scared. It means you're paying attention.

TBC

Michonne: Norma's on her way--things could go wrong in a hurry.

Michonne: Hang onto this...you don't know when you might need it. (hands gun back) Norma's on her way--things could go wrong in a hurry.

James: I'll be careful.

Michonne: Take this to your sister. (hands gun back) Norma's on her way--things could go wrong in a hurry.

Michonne says nothing.

James leaves.

Michonne: (looks at gun) Wish it didn't always come to this.

Michonne puts the duffel bag over her shoulder and leaves the room. She imagines Elodie running past her. The radio crackles.

Guard: (over radio) Janey, Rich...what's the hold up?

Rich: (over radio) Prisoners aren't cooperating. What do you want us to do?

Guard: (over radio) We don't have time for this. Get 'em moving.

(If Randall is alive.)

Randall: Can't get enough, huh?

(If Randall is alive.)

Michonne punches Randall.

Pete: Jesus!

(If Michonne kept Pete around.)

Michonne looks at Pete.

Michonne imagines that the photo depicts her daughters. She blinks and sees the photo as it is: a picture of the Fairbanks family having dinner together.

Michonne: Sam's mom... Looks like she was pretty sick.

Michonne: Not gonna be able to look at that the same way again.

One drawing depicts a cat next to a sunflower, and the other shows a cow near a house.

Michonne: James and Alex... Wonder how they'll get through all this.

Michonne: Old record player.

Michonne turns on the music player. She hallucinates her daughters behind her, and turns it off.

One drawing depicts a boy riding a dinosaur, and the other is just scribbles.

Michonne: Alex must've drawn this one. I hope he's okay.

TBC

Michonne: Wow... She's been all over the world. Those days are long gone now.

Michonne: (looks at passport) Sam's passport. (looks at other passport) This must be her mother. Sophia Fairbanks. Almost out of space in these.

Michonne: Sam's mom wrote this... "Took Sam to see the Eiffel Tower. I don't think she cared much for it, but we found a little shop on the way back and ate about fifty macarons each. I blame the pregnancy... Sam blames our shared sweet tooth." At least Sam has some happy memories to hold onto.

Michonne: I should leave him alone.

The doorframe is marked with "JF" and "AF".

Michonne: James Fairbanks... Alex Fairbanks...

The poster is a hand-drawn picture of a superhero with a "G" on his costume.

Michonne: Poor Greg...

Michonne: I remember getting my law degree...doesn't mean much now.

It's a photo of John and Sophia.

Michonne: They look really happy together.

Michonne: "John... Take care of our children and take care of yourself."

Michonne puts the letter back.

Michonne: "I'm sorry. I know that doesn't help or explain anything, but it's true. I can't stand watching you and the kids suffer, knowing what's going to happen to me...and what I'll become. Better to spare you that pain. I love you more than anything, Sophie."

Michonne: This must be how they reinforced the gate. Hope it keeps Norma out.

Michonne: Nearly empty.

Michonne: Worked better than I thought.

Michonne: Looks like they were ready for anything...almost anything.

Michonne: What a mess. Could've been a lot worse.

(If Randall is dead.)

Michonne looks at him.

Radio Comments

Rich: (over radio) Right behind you. Shit...walkers.

Randall's Comments (Randall is alive)

Randall: Norma'll see right through this.

Randall: I'm a guest in this house. Where are your manners?

Randall: You just gonna keep ignoring me?

Randall: Not gonna stop and say hello?

Randall: Was that? Nah, I thought I heard Norma at the front door. Probably nothing.

Randall: Hey, Michonne.

Michonne goes outside. James sits in the yard near Sam, who is digging a grave or hammering boards over the windows.

Michonne: Hey, Sam.

Sam: Hey...

Sam: Thanks for...before. I couldn't have moved him myself.

Sam: Something you need?

Michonne: I ran into James inside... You should really go talk to him.

Sam: I know, I just...I know nothing I say is gonna make it any better.

Michonne: Want a hand?

Sam: No. Having something to do helps me...not think. About everything.

(If Michonne helped Sam.)

TBC

(If Michonne didn't help Sam.)

TBC

Michonne says nothing.

Sam: Paige thinks we're not safe here. That we need to move on. I bet she's trying to convince you to leave too. She's wanted out of here for a while. Guess she's found her chance.

Michonne: I'm not leaving without you.

Sam: I wouldn't blame you if you did. You're here to get your people back, and that's fine. None of this is your mess.

Michonne: You should try talking to Paige. Are you really ready to let her walk away? If you care about each other--

Sam: Then she should understand why I need to stay.

TBC

Sam: I know I'm being harsh. I just wish she understood...

Sam: It's just...so much of this place is my dad. It's all of us. He worked his way up from nothing...took a job cleaning houses, paid his way through law school... When he bought this house, it was...it was proof that he'd made a better life for us. We grew up here, I... Maybe I'm crazy, but I can't let that all be for nothing. He was so proud of what he'd built. This place kept us safe... We were happy here.

Michonne: It's still a house, Sam. Just wood and brick. The people inside, Paige and your brothers, they're who you need to protect.

Sam: That's what I'm trying to do. They won't survive out there. I can't protect them. I couldn't with Greg--this is the best chance they've got.

Michonne: I get it... The world tries to take everything you love. You have to hang on to what's important.

Sam: I can't lose anything else.

Michonne: Norma doesn't care about any of that. She's coming here and she's not gonna stop just because this place has sentimental value.

Sam: I know. I don't expect you to understand.

TBC

Sam: You found the bag.

Michonne: Yeah. Here. (gives gun)

Sam: Thanks.

Sam: I should get back to work.

Michonne goes back inside.

Michonne decides not to approach.

Talk to Randall (Randall is alive)

Michonne takes the bag off his head.

Randall: You know, my hands hurt a little bit. You got any ointment lyin' around? (laughs and coughs) Yeah, well. When Norma gets here, she'll bust down that little gate of yours...and tune you up good. Just march on in... Majestic as fuck...

Michonne: Come in here just like you did? Didn't work out too well for you.

Randall: Yeah, well.

Michonne: You can still call her off. Get her to let my friends go.

Randall: I'd rather eat shit out of a dead dog's ass.

Michonne: Yeah. You've said.

Randall: Don't make it any less true.

Randall: Lay waste to this garbage house. That's what's gonna happen. You watch.

Michonne puts the bag back over his head.

Randall: Don't be a stranger.

Talk to Pete (Kept Pete)

Pete: This is a mess. I can't believe how fucking stupid I was. I got so focused on finding people...I wasn't putting the crew first. If I didn't insist on looking... If I didn't turn us around and lead us here... None of this would've happened.

Michonne: It wasn't stupid. You cared about finding your friends, there's nothing wrong with that.

Michonne: It's not your fault, Pete. You didn't know this would happen.

Pete: Oak knew. I should've fucking listened.

Michonne: Yeah, coming here was a mistake.

TBC

Pete: You'd think after all this time...after everything we've had to do to survive, people would want to help each other. But, no, they're just guarding what's theirs and taking out whoever gets in their way. I don't know why I even bother trying to help anymore. It doesn't...it doesn't seem worth it. Maybe I was just fooling myself. I wanted to think there people worth helping. And now we all have to pay the price.

Michonne: This isn't you, Pete. You help people. You helped me. Don't give up.

Pete: I won't.

Michonne: Careful, Pete. You're starting to sound like me.

Michonne: Maybe you're right. Maybe...this time...it wasn't.

TBC

Pete: We just...we have to get my crew back. Hopefully my boat is still in one piece. Shit. What the hell are we gonna do? If Norma's coming for a fight... Are we really prepared for that? These kids...they aren't up for this.

Michonne: Norma's not gonna stop. She may say she wants to make a deal, but I don't believe that for a second. We're gonna have to fight.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: I trust you.

Michonne: Norma says she wants to make a deal, and I believe her.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: We make the trade, and get out of here.

Michonne: Sounds like Paige wants to run. Not the worst idea.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: I'm not leaving without my guys, but once we get them back...yeah, I'm in.

TBC

Talk to Pete again (kept Pete)

Pete: I'm fine, Michonne. Just make sure everyone else is ready when Norma comes.

If Michonne kept Pete around, she gives him a gun.

Michonne: Here, Pete.

Pete: Thanks.

Michonne goes upstairs.

Michonne: Is that...music?

Michonne turns around and imagines herself in the middle of a hallway, with her daughters a short distance ahead of her. As she runs toward them, they get farther away. She sinks to her knees in despair.

Michonne: I can't reach you!

Michonne: Here! Over here!

Michonne: Come back! Come back to me.

Michonne says nothing.

The girls enter one of the rooms. Michonne opens the door and returns to the real world, realizing that she actually opened the door to closet where Alex is hiding. Next to him is a music box engraved with "Emily".

Michonne: Can I come in?

Alex nods and Michonne enters the closet, closing the door behind her. She sits down next to him.

Michonne: You doin' okay in here? I bet that was scary before, when I brought your sister in like that. But she's okay now--

Alex: Nothing can hurt me in here. As long as I stay in my fortress, I'm safe.

Michonne: I like that. It's pretty.

Alex: My dad gave it to me, so I wouldn't have to hear the...things out there. As long as I stay in my fortress, I'm safe.

Michonne: I know you're scared, but you shouldn't hide. That only makes the bad stuff seem scarier.

Alex: I'm not leaving. As long as I stay in my fortress, I'm safe.

Alex: This is, um, my fortress.

Alex: It keeps all the bad stuff out. I put pillows and blankets against the wall.

Michonne: Looks pretty sturdy. I bet it's kept you nice and safe for a long time. That's good.

Alex: It has to. Because of them.

Michonne: Was this your dad's idea?

Alex: Yeah, my dad makes sure I'm always safe. So nothing can happen to me, ever. Especially not those...things.

Michonne: It's nice. But...it's not gonna protect you from what's out there.

Alex: It won't? But Dad said...Dad said those things wouldn't get me in here.

Alex: In here, nothing can hurt me. Not even them.

Alex: I know what those monsters out there are... Wendigo. Grandma told me about them. It's what happens when someone...eats another person.

Michonne: Oh? I hadn't heard that one before.

Alex: Do they scare you too? They make lots of noise. Even at night.

Michonne: I'll tell you a secret. They scare me too sometimes.

Alex: Really? But my dad's not scared of them.

Michonne: The monsters don't scare me. I scare the monsters.

Alex: Really?

Michonne: Yeah.

Alex: My dad scares them off too.

Michonne: Getting scared is normal.

Alex: Really?

Michonne: Happens to everyone sometimes.

Alex: But my dad's not scared of them.

Alex: But my dad's not scared of them.

Alex: I've been waiting for him. Where is he? Why didn't he come get me yet? Where is my dad?

Michonne: Your dad's not coming. He's...dead.

Alex: What?!

Michonne: He got shot outside.

Michonne: I'm so sorry, Alex... Something terrible happened. A bad man came, and hurt your dad. He...shot him.

Alex: What?!

Michonne: He can't come right now.

Alex: I want to wait here for my dad.

Michonne: Alex...

Alex: I want my dad!

Alex: Why won't you talk to me?

Alex: No! I don't believe you. I want to see him! Please.

Michonne: Sometimes...awful things happen. And there's nothing we can do about it.

TBC

Michonne: The bad man who did it, we got him. He's not going to hurt anyone else.

Michonne hugs Alex.

TBC

Alex: Did my dad...become one of them? It's what happens, right? He did, didn't he?

Michonne: No. He was shot in the head. When someone dies, you put a bullet or something sharp right here (points to head), and they don't turn. Okay?

Alex will remember that.

Michonne: No, your dad didn't become one of them. He's still your dad.

Alex will remember that.

Michonne: No, no, don't think about things like that. We just need to keep going. That's all we have to do. The rest doesn't matter.

TBC

Alex: It's not fair.

Michonne: Alex, you need to be strong, okay?

Alex: I can't...

TBC

Michonne: You deserve to know the truth. I didn't want to lie about what happened to your dad.

Michonne says nothing.

Alex: (cries) I just... I want my dad... I want Greg back... I want everything to go back to the way it was. Daddy...

Michonne: I'm sorry... I'm sorry I couldn't bring your brother home.

Michonne: I wish it could go back too. I wish it all the time.

TBC

Michonne says nothing.

Alex: When Greg...when he...did he become one of them? It's what happens, right? He did, didn't he?

Michonne: No, no, don't think about things like that. We just need to keep going. That's all we have to do. The rest doesn't matter.

Michonne: No. Your brother didn't become one of them. Greg is still Greg.

TBC

Alex: Please tell me.

Alex: Is that what's gonna happen to me? Am I gonna die and...change into one too?

Michonne: Not for a very, very long time.

Alex will remember that.

Alex: Thanks.

TBC

Michonne: No. I'm going to protect you. Nothing out there will hurt you.

Alex will remember that.

Alex: Thanks.

Alex: I am, aren't I? No one wants to tell me anything.

Janey: (over radio) Two and three checked in. Coming up on the road now.

Norma: (over radio) Keep the chatter to a minimum. Our friends are listening.

Michonne: Thanks for letting me see your fortress.

Michonne steps out of the room and hallucinates Elodie running past her. She enters Paige's room.

Talk to Paige

Paige: Oh, hey. I didn't hear you come in.

Paige: Were you able to talk some sense into her?

Paige: Or do you still think digging a hole is a good use of Sam's time?

Paige: Or is she still out there digging a hole in the ground?

Paige: I've never seen her like this. She's...she's just not thinking.

Michonne: Sam wants to defend the house. She wants to fight.

Paige: You're kidding. Norma's got more people, more guns...there's no way we win that fight.

Michonne: Give her some space, okay? She's grieving.

Paige: I know, and I wish I could give her that. But Norma's not gonna wait for her to get over her dad's death. This shit storm's coming whether we're ready for it or not.

(If Michonne helped Sam or did nothing.)

Michonne: I'm not gonna stop her from burying her father.

Paige: You act like I'm doing this to be cruel. I get why she wants to do it, but we just can't. Not with Norma on her way.

(If Michonne stopped Sam.)

Michonne: Relax. I got her to stop.

Paige: Then what's she still doing out there? She should be packing, getting the kids ready...

Paige: Whatever.

Paige: I don't know why Sam thinks she can protect her brothers here. I'll be out of your hair soon enough. Never belonged here anyway. Same as you. That's one thing we got in common. Squatters in other people's lives.

Michonne: But that's not why you're leaving.

Paige: I mean, it's part of it. Call it self-preservation, but I've gotten pretty used to knowing when it's time to cut and run.

Michonne: This is your home.

Paige: This place was never mine. They let me hang around, play make-believe... I left my real life a long time ago.

Michonne: What do you mean, same as me?

Paige: I know what it's like, running from...whatever. I spent most of my life doing that.

Paige: I didn't mean to offend you. I just... I know what it's like, running from...whatever. I spent most of my life doing that.

Paige: Norma's gonna be here soon, if they're not ready... I won't stick around just to watch this fall apart. She's so...stubborn, though. I just hope it doesn't get her killed this time.

Michonne: You can't leave James and Alex. They've lost enough today.

Paige will remember that.

Paige: I know, I know... I'm not trying to hurt them.

Michonne: Then stay. Sam needs you. You're gonna regret it if you leave. Trust me.

Paige will remember that.

Michonne: You're the only one here who can convince Sam to leave. Talk to her.

Paige: I tried.

Michonne: Try again. She needs to be ready to run. And so do the kids.

Paige will remember that.

Michonne says nothing.

Paige: The Fairbanks kept me safe, but...I don't know if I can do the same for them.

Michonne gives Paige ammo.

Paige: Oh, hey. I didn't hear you come in.

Michonne: Here.

Michonne goes back downstairs and Sam enters the house.

Sam: Oh, Michonne.

Sam: You found the bag.

Michonne: Yeah. Here. (gives gun)

Sam: Thanks.

Sam: Is Paige ready?

Sam: Are the others ready?

Michonne: As ready as we're gonna get.

Sam: I'm looking for Alex. Have you seen him? I want him to be there when I say a few words for Dad...

Sam: Even if I couldn't bury him...

Sam: He wasn't at Mom's funeral. He should be there for this.

(If Michonne didn't say John died.)

Michonne: Alex asked about his father. I didn't know what to tell him.

Sam: I'll...I'll go talk to him.

Michonne: You'll find him in his "fortress".

(If Michonne said John died.)

Michonne: Alex asked about his father. So...I told him what happened.

Sam: Oh. Shit. I...I should check on him then.

Michonne: You'll find him in his "fortress".

TBC

Michonne: He's hiding in his closet.

Sam: Thanks, I'll go get him.

Sam: Never mind. I'll find him.

Sam: I'll meet you outside?

Sam: I just...I wish he didn't have to see him like this.

Sam walks away.

Outside

Michonne stands at the gravesite. John is either buried or covered with a tarp. If she helped Sam, she touches Sophia's gravestone. If she didn't help Sam, the tarp is blown up by the wind, and she hallucinates her daughters lying dead beneath it.

Colette: Mommy? Don't go.

Sam, James, and Alex step outside.

Alex: No! I don't believe you!

The Fairbanks walk up to Michonne. Alex sobs, and James wraps his arm around him. The four of them stand there in silence for several moments. Sam takes a few deep breaths.

James: Sam? You okay?

Sam: (crying) Greg and Dad...? I just...I don't really know what to say. Where am I supposed to start? I don't know...

Michonne: Maybe you don't need to say anything. It's okay to just...be here together.

Michonne: I've never been very good at these things. So I'm not the best person to ask for advice.

Sam: I'll figure something out.

Michonne: Just say what he meant to you.

Sam: Yeah, okay.

Sam: I...I think it should just be family here.

Michonne: I'll give you a moment.

Sam's Eulogy

Sam: Dad was...always thinking about other people. He once told me that he'd be happy suffering if it meant keeping us happy, healthy. But I think he suffered more than he even deserves. With Mom, and Greg...

Michonne walks up to the house.

Pete: Hey, you okay? Michonne?

Michonne: Don't worry about me. I'm...okay.

Pete: Fair enough.

Michonne: I'm just worried about the crew. If Norma hurt them...

Pete: They'll be okay. We'll get them back.

Michonne: Just...thinking about my kids. I keep seeing them...

Pete: Hang in there. We'll be back out on the water soon.

Pete: When you're quiet, it's more like...disquiet. Like a storm's on the way.

Pete: You know, I envy them a little. They've managed to hold onto something we all lost a long time ago. Something like normal. I don't know how to describe it. It feels like before... Just a little bit. I sound like an idiot, don't I?

Michonne: Whatever normal is...it doesn't exist anymore. No matter how much you want it to.

Pete will remember that.

Michonne: Your boat comes close to that. You kind of forget everything else while you're out there.

Pete will remember that.

Michonne: It may seem nice, but it won't keep them alive. They don't know how to survive out there.

Pete will remember that.

TBC

Paige steps outside.

Paige: Hey.

Paige: You alright? You look a little... Well, like you're losing it a little bit. Sorry.

TBC

TBC

Michonne: Just remembering my kids.

Paige: Did they...you know...

Michonne: I don't know. I wasn't with them.

Paige: I don't know what happened to my family, either.

Paige: You don't want to talk about it. I get it.

Paige: I thought about joining them, but it felt...weird. I mean...I live here, but I'm still not family, you know? They treat me like I am. But I know that's not true. Family is...different.

Michonne: I know how that is. I've tried starting over, but... It felt somehow...disrespectful to the family I lost.

Paige will remember that.

Michonne: These days, families aren't the people you're born to. It's the people you stay with. The people who care about you. Pete's crew...they're a family.

Paige will remember that.

Paige: I guess that's true.

Michonne: It's okay to be an outsider. Better than getting attached to people you might lose.

Paige will remember that.

Paige: I don't know...being alone doesn't sound all that great either.

Michonne says nothing.

Paige: I decided to stay.

Paige: For the kids...

Paige: For Sam...

Paige: Don't get cocky, it had nothing to do with what you said.

Michonne: Uh-huh.

Paige: It's gonna be tough leaving this place. I just hope I can convince Sam to go with me.

Paige: It's gonna be tough leaving this place. I just wish Sam would go too.

Norma's group bangs on the gate.

Norma: Michonne!

Sam: She's here!

Everyone runs into the house.

House

Sam: I thought we had more time.

Paige: It's okay. It's gonna be okay.

Alex: Sam?

Sam: Just go upstairs with your brother, okay? I need you to hide until I come get you.

James: What's gonna happen?

Alex: Is she gonna hurt us?

James: You'll stop them, right? Right?

Sam: Just get upstairs.

Michonne: We're just gonna talk, okay?

Michonne: Whatever happens...I'll protect you.

Michonne: Stay out of sight and you'll be safe. Norma's not after you.

Sam: Go, James. Please!

Pete: Everything will be fine.

Sam: Stay together. No matter what.

James: We will.

Alex: Okay.

Sam hugs the boys. They then run upstairs.

Paige: I can get a clear shot of the front gate from upstairs. I'll cover you. If I can... I hope it doesn't come to that. This is worst-case scenario, right?

Michonne: Are you sure?

Paige: Not really...

Michonne: Thank you.

Paige: Don't thank me yet...

Michonne: You better not miss.

Paige: I hope I don't.

Michonne says nothing.

Sam: Paige, if anything goes wrong, I need you to take care of James and Alex.

Paige: Don't talk like that!

Sam: Paige, please.

Paige: Sam, you know I'll--

They hear a crashing sound outside. Paige goes upstairs.

Michonne: Grab Randall and meet us outside.

Outside

Sam, Michonne, Randall, and determinantly Pete walk outside. Sam holds onto Randall and points a gun at him. Paige watches from a window, holding her rifle.

Sam: It's quiet out there. You ready out there?

Pete: Anything goes wrong out there...I've got your back.

Sam: Right.

Sam: Getting your crew back... It's not gonna be easy.

Michonne: Just stay alert and be ready for anything. We don't know what Norma's planning.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: You got it.

Michonne: We just have to be careful not to provoke her. I don't want this to turn into a fight.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: Hopefully Norma feels that way too...

Michonne: This isn't gonna stay peaceful for long. Be ready to fight when I tell you.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: You got it.

Sam: We'll follow your lead.

Michonne pushes the gate open and steps outside to find Norma, determinantly with Pete next to her.

Norma: It's just me.

Pete steps outside the gate.

Pete: What the hell is going on here?

Sam: What's going on?

Norma: I had my people hang back a bit. I wanted to talk first. Just us. Clear the air a little.

Pete: What's your game?

Norma: No game, I just want to talk.

Pete: Just hear her out, Michonne.

Sam: I don't trust her.

(If Michonne kept Pete around.)

Michonne: I'm not really interested in hearing what you have to say. I just want my people back.

Norma: And you'll get them. Just give me a chance.

(If Michonne let Pete go.)

TBC

Michonne: Where's Pete's crew?

Norma: They're not far. Don't worry.

Pete: Why should we believe you?

Norma: I may be a lot of things, but I'm no liar. Your crew is safe, I promise you.

Pete: They're fine.

Norma: I know you're worried, so here.

Michonne: Okay, start talking.

Norma: Hey, that is what I'm doing. I didn't come here to fight.

Norma: Okay, then. I can see why you're skeptical.

Norma draws a knife and cuts Pete's bindings. He walks over to Michonne.

Norma: See? I can be reasonable.

Pete: Thought you could get rid of me, huh? Michonne...

Michonne hugs Pete.

Michonne: Don't get used to it.

Michonne: Glad to have you back, Pete.

Pete: It's good to see you too.

Michonne: Are you okay? Did she hurt you?

Pete: I'm fine. Let's just get our crew back and get out of here.

Michonne says nothing.

Michonne gives Pete a gun.

Norma: Listen... Monroe is...gone. Sunk down in the water like... Everything I've built... You and I...we've each taken from the other. All I want now is my brother back.

Norma: And he better not be hurt too bad.

Norma: That's all. And I'll leave you be.

Sam: You buying any of this?

Michonne: That's it? Just like that and you walk away?

Norma: Been enough killing these last few days. I'd like to just get past it, if we can. A show of good faith, then.

Michonne: You'll get Randall after you hand over my friends.

Norma: After everything you've done, you expect me to simply hand over your friends, just like that?

Norma: I brought you Pete. You'll get the rest when I get my brother.

Michonne reaches toward her machete.

Pete: Careful, Michonne...

Norma: A show of good faith, then.

Michonne: He's right here.

Sam shoves Randall outside the gate.

Norma: Randall, you okay?

Randall: (muffled) Just get this fucking thing off me!

Randall growls.

Sam pulls Randall back inside the gates.

Norma: Just hang on. I gotcha.

Norma: See, we can work together. Release that one.

Norma: You better hope when I take that mask off he don't look as bad as he sounds.

Norma: One good turn...

Norma: Alright. You need more. I'm not idiot, I get that. A show of good faith, then.

Norma takes out a flare gun and fires it into the sky. Walkers take notice of it.

Norma: Any minute now.

The rest of Norma's crew arrives with Berto, Oak, and Siddiq.

Norma: Safe and sound. Just like I said.

Norma: Now...give me Randall and we can go our separate ways.

Gabby: You can't let her walk away!

Norma: Now...I want to see my brother.

Gabby: Why the hell are we standing here?

Gabby: We're all homeless because of her!

Zachary: Gabby, it wasn't her fault!

Norma: That's enough!

Zachary: Gabby, stop.

Gabby: They should be dead!

Norma: That is NOT what we're here for!

Jonas: They burned our homes! Murdered Zachary!

Norma: I know what we've lost! But we'll lose a lot more if we don't end this.

Norma: Now be quiet!

Norma: Michonne, please...I just want my brother. Let's be done with this. Deal?

Norma: My brother. Now. I've given you what you wanted. I just want to see him.

Michonne: I want Pete's crew first...then I'll give you Randall.

Norma: I think I've been more than reasonable.

Norma: Give me Randall.

Norma: Show me Randall.

Norma points a gun at Oak's head.

Michonne: Oak!

Pete: Hey! Put the gun down.

Norma: I could shoot him and still have two more to spare. So you're gonna do what I've asked. Now. I came here, willing to talk. But if you're gonna insist on being difficult...

Pete: Don't hurt him, alright?

(If Michonne didn't already show Randall.)

Michonne: He's right here.

Sam shoves Randall outside the gate.

Norma: Randall, you okay?

Randall: (muffled) Just get this fucking thing off me!

Randall growls.

Sam pulls Randall back inside the gates.

Norma: Just hang on. I gotcha. Now hand him over and we'll be done with this.

(If Michonne showed Randall.)

Michonne: Here, take him.

Michonne shoots Randall in the leg.

Norma: Randall!

Michonne: You wanna try that again?

Michonne: You're not gonna shoot him. You may have more of my guys, but this piece of shit over here is all you've got... And there's still plenty I can do to hurt him.

Norma: I'm giving you one last warning, Michonne.

Gabby: Enough warnings!

(If Michonne didn't already show Randall.)

Michonne: He's right here.

Sam shoves Randall outside the gate.

Norma: Randall, you okay?

Randall: (muffled) Just get this fucking thing off me!

Randall growls.

Sam pulls Randall back inside the gates.

Norma: Just hang on. I gotcha.

Norma: See, we can work together. Release that one.

Norma: You better hope when I take that mask off he don't look as bad as he sounds.

Norma: Release that one.

Jonas: It's okay. We just need this to be over.

Zachary: Let him go, Gabby.

Jonas: This is bullshit.

Gabby unties Siddiq, and he walks over to the others.

Pete: Glad you're safe, man.

Norma: I made good on my end, now it's your turn. Give me Randall.

Norma points a gun at Oak's head.

Michonne: Oak!

Pete: Hey! Put the gun down.

Norma: I could shoot him and still have one more to spare. So you're gonna do what I've asked. Now. I came here, willing to talk. But if you're gonna insist on being difficult...

Pete: Don't hurt him, alright?

Michonne: Here, take him.

Michonne shoots Randall in the leg.

Norma: Randall!

Michonne: You wanna try that again?

Michonne: You're not gonna shoot him. You may have more of my guys, but this piece of shit over here is all you've got... And there's still plenty I can do to hurt him.

Norma: I'm giving you one last warning, Michonne.

Gabby: Enough warnings!

(If Michonne showed Randall.)

Michonne: He's all yours.

Sam takes Randall outside the gates.

Norma: You seem awfully eager. Let me see his face first. Then we'll trade and be done with this mess.

Michonne: You have three of my men, I only have one of yours. Send one of my friends over...then you can have Randall.

Norma: I think I've been more than reasonable.

Norma: Give me Randall.

Norma: Show me Randall.

Norma points a gun at Oak's head.

Michonne: Oak!

Pete: Hey! Put the gun down.

Norma: I could shoot him and still have two more to spare. So you're gonna do what I've asked. Now. I came here, willing to talk. But if you're gonna insist on being difficult...

Pete: Don't hurt him, alright?

Michonne: Here, take him.

Michonne shoots Randall in the leg.

Norma: Randall!

Michonne: You wanna try that again?

Michonne: You're not gonna shoot him. You may have more of my guys, but this piece of shit over here is all you've got... And there's still plenty I can do to hurt him.

Norma: I'm giving you one last warning, Michonne.

Gabby: Enough warnings!

Pete: Now's not the time to screw around.

Norma: You should listen to your friend.

Norma: Give me Randall.

Norma: Show me Randall.

Norma points a gun at Oak's head.

Michonne: Oak!

Pete: Hey! Put the gun down.

Norma: I could shoot him and still have two more to spare. So you're gonna do what I've asked. Now. I came here, willing to talk. But if you're gonna insist on being difficult...

Pete: Don't hurt him, alright?

Michonne: Here, take him.

Michonne shoots Randall in the leg.

Norma: Randall!

Michonne: You wanna try that again?

Michonne: You're not gonna shoot him. You may have more of my guys, but this piece of shit over here is all you've got... And there's still plenty I can do to hurt him.

Norma: I'm giving you one last warning, Michonne.

Gabby: Enough warnings!

Gabby: Randall isn't worth all this shit.

Norma: Gabby, listen to me--

Gabby: After everything they've done, you're still giving them more chances! We deserve retribution.

Zachary: Don't do this!

Jonas: Stop!

Zachary: No!

Jonas: Who gives a shit about Randall?!

Norma: Jonas, don't!

Jonas: If you're not gonna punish them for what they've done, I will.

Gabby: We deserve retribution.

Norma: Not like this!

Jonas: This is for Zachary.

Pete: No!

Gabby or Jonas shoots Berto in the head.

Pete: Berto!

Norma: Everyone put your guns down!

Sam: I knew we couldn't trust them!

Norma: Don't! Stand down! Please. Don't hurt him!

Gabby: If you're not gonna do anything, we have to!

Norma: That's not your call! Please...

Michonne signals Paige, and she shoots Norma in the shoulder.

Janey: They shot her!

Jonas tries to shoot Michonne, but Pete shoots him in the head.

Gabby: Jonas...

Norma: Fuck!

Norma reaches for her gun, but Oak knocks her to the ground.

Pete: Oak, run!

Oak and determinantly Siddiq run into the gate.

Randall slams the back of his head into Sam's face and starts to run away.

Sam shoots Randall, knocking the bag off his head, then shoots him again, killing him.

Norma: Randall.

Michonne: You better get your people under control!

Michonne: We have to even things up somehow.

Norma: I can make this right.

Norma: I can make this right.

Gabby tries to shoot Michonne, but Pete shoots her in the head.

Jonas: Gabby...

Zachary: Fuck!

Jonas tries to shoot Michonne, but Pete shoots him in the head.

Gabby: Jonas...

Norma: I'll give you that one. Alright? We're even.

Norma: As long as you let Randall go. I'm not gonna ask you again. No one else has to die.

Michonne shoots one of the soldiers, Janey, and a walker. She hallucinates seeing her daughters in front of her. Rich fires at Michonne, but gets grabbed by a walker.

Pete: I thought you weren't gonna make it for a minute.

Siddiq: They stopped firing.

Paige runs downstairs.

Paige: They're surrounding the house! We have to get out of here!

Sam: Where are the boys?

Paige: Upstairs!

Sam: Alex! James!

Paige: Hurry up!

A soldier throws a molotov through the window, and Michonne shoots him.

Michonne: I have to get you out of here. It's not safe.

Michonne: Why does this keep happening? What's going on?

Michonne says nothing.

Michonne coughs as the flames engulf the room.

Michonne: I--I should've been there...with you. But I wasn't. I wasn't and you... Every day, I wish I could go back and change it...but I can't.

Michonne: What do you want me to do? I can't go back. I can't save you. I can't fix this. I wish I hadn't... There's nothing I can do.

Michonne: I know you're not real. None of this is. But I keep seeing you...everywhere. I don't know how to make it stop. Just tell me what you want.

Michonne says nothing.

Michonne's imaginary phone dings and she takes the call.

Dominic: Michonne! It's Dominic. Where the hell are you?

Colette: What's happening?!

Dominic: Go pack your things, okay? We have to go!

Colette: Where's Mommy?

Dominic: We tried to wait. We're heading to Donna's. Just...

Colette: Dad!

Dominic: She'll be fine! Come on!

Colette: No! She'll come look for us! We have to be here!

Dominic: Michonne. If you're still...just stay safe, okay? They need you.

Michonne: I'm so sorry. I don't know what else to say. I'm just...I'm sorry.

Michonne: Did...did you get out? Did you make it? I need to know.

Michonne: I did look for you. I came back... I promise. I was just too late.

Michonne says nothing.

Michonne falls to her knees and sobs. The girls walk up to her.

Michonne: You can't--

Michonne: Please--

Michonne: I still--

Michonne says nothing.

The ceiling starts to break, and beams fall down.

Michonne: No!

Michonne runs up to her daughters, but beams fall onto them, knocking her to the ground.

James: Help! Somebody!

Alex: Sam! Sam!

James: Help!

Alex: Help us!

James: Anybody?!

Michonne: I'm here!

James: Michonne? We're stuck! In the closet!

Michonne: Stay where you are?

James: Michonne? We're here! In the closet!

Michonne: Where are you?

James: In the closet! Here!

Michonne says nothing.

James tries to open the closet door, but it is blocked by a fallen beam.

Alex: Don't leave us...please.

James: We can't get out... Don't leave us.

Colette: Don't leave us! Please don't go! Please don't go.

Alex: Don't go.

James: Help!

Michonne chops and kicks the beam until it breaks. She opens it, and James and Alex run out. Sam enters the room!

Sam: Michonne! Have you seen--

Alex: Sam!

Sam: I thought you were dead... (hugs Alex and James) Oh, I was so worried! Are you okay? I thought I wasn't gonna find you.

Michonne: Sam. We have to go!

Sam: Yeah. You're right. Come on

Michonne: They were calling out for you.

Sam: I'm so sorry. I'm here now. I'm not gonna leave you again, okay?

Michonne: Where are the others? Pete and--

Sam: They're fine. They made it outside. Come on

Sam: It's time to go, alright?

Sam:.We can get out through Greg's room. Follow me. Stay right with me, okay?

James: Okay.

Michonne: Go!

The group runs through the house. Michonne dodges a falling beam. Sam opens a window in Greg's room and Michonne closes the door.

Sam: Michonne, hurry!

Michonne hallucinates her daughters. Colette grabs her hand.

Sam: James!

Colette: Don't go.

Michonne hallucinates that she is at the door to Dominic's apartment in the days before the apocalypse, in the moment she saw her daughters last.

Michonne: I have to go.

Colette: Why?

Michonne: My work... I...

Michonne: I wish I could stay, but I can't.

Colette: Why?

Michonne: It's...complicated. My job...

Michonne: This isn't goodbye. I'll see you again.

Colette: When?

Michonne: I don't know. Soon.

Elodie: Mama?

Dominic: Say goodbye, girls. Your mother has to leave.

Elodie: Please, Mama?

Colette: Stay here...with us.

Dominic: She can't. Just let her go.

TBC

Michonne: Dominic, please...just...let me say goodbye.

Michonne: Dominic, please...give us a minute.

Dominic: Say goodbye, girls.

Sam: Come on, Alex!

Sam helps Alex through the window. He climbs down the roof to join the others.

Sam: What are you doing?

Colette: No...

Dominic: Girls, enough. Let her leave if that's what she wants.

Sam: Michonne!

The floorboards begin to break.

Colette: No, no, no... Don't go.

Dominic: Colette... She can't stay.

Sam: We can't stay here!

Dominic: It's too late. Your mother already made up her mind.

Michonne: I wish you could...come with me.

Michonne: Girls, listen to me. I have to go. I...I just have to go.

Michonne: Please understand, it's not that I want to leave...I don't. I want to stay with you.

Michonne says nothing.

Sam: Michonne! I'm not leaving you here!

Michonne: Goodbye. I'm...so sorry.

Sam grabs Michonne's arm and pulls her toward the window. Sam steps outside.

Sam: Give me your hand!

Michonne grabs Sam's hand.

Sam: I've got you.

Sam pulls Michonne through the window.

Michonne: I'm staying right here.

Sam: Michonne! We have to go!

Michonne: I love you. So much.

Colette: I love you too.

Elodie: I love you too.

TBC

Michonne: Girls, please...just tell me it's okay.

Colette: It's okay, Mama.

Elodie: Yeah. It's okay.

Michonne says nothing.

Michonne hugs her daughters.

Sam: We have to get you out!

Sam pulls Michonne toward the window despite her resistance.

Sam: Come on, Michonne! Go!

Sam throws Michonne out the window.

Sam: It's okay.

The boards beneath Sam's feet break, and she falls into the fire.

Michonne and determinantly Sam jump off the roof. Michonne passes out.

Beach

Some time later, the group walks through the forest and reaches the beach. Michonne falls to her knees. Eventually, she gets up and they walk onto the beach. Sam determinantly walks up to her, then Pete.

Pete: Siddiq's gonna take a boat down to what's left of Monroe. Salvage what we can...

Pete: We can drop you off in Oceanside or maybe one of the other communities up north. Good people.

Sam: Thanks. And thank you...for everything. I don't know if we would've made it out of there without you. You found my brothers. You took care of Norma... We owe you a lot.

Michonne: You didn't need me, Sam. You would've figured it out on your own.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: I'm not sure if that's true...but thanks for saying so.

Michonne: You're welcome.

Sam will remember that.

Michonne: Promise me you'll learn from this. Remember what happened here.

Sam will remember that.

Sam: I will.

TBC

Sam walks away.

Paige hugs Alex and James.

Pete: Give them time. They've lost a lot today. We made it out... But...they need time to grieve those that didn't. It's a lot to take in.

Michonne: Time isn't gonna fix this.

Michonne: Sam's death...it was my fault. She stayed behind, tried to get me to leave, but I--I wouldn't go.

Pete will remember that.

TBC

Pete: For all of us...

Pete: It'll be harder out there...

Pete: Without Berto.

Pete: Without Oak and Berto.

Pete: I might lean on you a bit more.

Pete: It's not gonna be the same without him.

Pete: It's not gonna be the same without them.

Michonne: I've got you covered, Pete. Don't worry.

Pete: I know I can count on you. I wanted to ask...

(If Oak is alive.)

Michonne: Yeah...I'm gonna miss him too.

Pete: I know this has been hard on you. In more ways than one.

(If Oak is dead.)

Michonne: I'm gonna miss them too...

Pete: I know this has been hard on you. In more ways than one.

Michonne: Are you gonna be okay, Pete?

Pete: Yeah, Don't worry about me. Yeah, I guess that's a bit hypocritical of me, huh? I wanted to ask...

Pete: I've...been meaning to ask you...

Pete: When we got separated...I heard you calling out for your daughters. What...what happened in there? I tried to find you. But I couldn't... I had to get everyone out, and...I could just hear you...screaming.

Michonne: I wasn't thinking clearly...all the smoke... I saw things that couldn't be real.

Pete: It's happening more often now. The hallucinations...hearing things.

Michonne: I almost didn't make it out. The place was burning to the ground and I...I couldn't find anyone. I was just...disoriented.

Pete: You're not telling me everything.

Michonne: I saw my daughters... I got to talk to them.

Pete: But that's...not possible. Right? For them to be there.

Michonne: I know.

Michonne says nothing.

Pete: Maybe you'd better start thinking about, you know...what if this doesn't go away?

Michonne: Maybe it won't...but this time when I saw them...

Michonne: I was able to walk away. I couldn't keep living in that moment with them anymore.

Michonne: They...weren't angry. I held them and...they hugged me back. It felt real.

Pete: I think it's time to stop running. Go back to your group. The people you left...your family. Before you can't anymore. If I know anything...it's how goddamn impermanent things are these days. Before you know it, they'll be gone... You'll have lost your chance.

Michonne: You're right. It's time to go back.

Pete will remember that.

(If Michonne said she's not staying forever or said nothing.)

Michonne: I've been thinking...maybe I'll stick around. If you'll have me.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: You're always welcome. But don't let it keep you from facing what you left behind.

(If Michonne said that she liked being part of the crew.)

Michonne: I like being around you guys.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: It's not goodbye for us. We'll always be around.

(If Michonne asked if Pete wanted her gone.)

Michonne: You trying to get rid of me?

Pete: You caught me.

Michonne: I'll go back eventually. When I'm ready.

Pete will remember that.

Pete: Just don't take too long.

Pete: Don't keep making the same mistake.

Pete: Come on.

Michonne sees her daughters in the forest. She reaches toward them, then walks away.
