Previously on "The Walking Dead. " [CRYING]

No.

Please.

Go home.

Tell the others we found the horde.

Where are you gonna be?

There's got to be another way in.

The spy you're looking for, right here in your camp.

The little one, you see, she is close enough to you that she knows exactly where that horde was.

I want you to track her down.

Bring her to me.

And if she has betrayed us, I will kill her.

ROSITA: It's your turn.

GABRIEL: [GROANS]

[YAWNS]

[GRUNTS]

Hi.

Aw.

Okay, okay, okay.

[FUSSING CONTINUES]

[CRYING]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

No!

[GASPS, BREATHING HEAVILY]

GABRIEL: Rosita, do you copy?

[MASK SPLATS]

[SIGHS]

I'm the one that knows Aaron.

We know who you are.

The people you sent out, they're in trouble, trapped in a cave where Alpha has placed her horde.

Now, they could still be in there or they might've gotten out.

- I don't know.

- You said the horde was in a field.

It was.

Now it's in a cave.

She moved it.

The whole thing.

Right before they got there.

[SIGHS]

I'm just telling you what happened.

I'm not sure you are.

I'm trying to help.

Why?

[SIGHS]

The baby that they left at Hilltop, he's my nephew.

And I would do anything to see him again.

Where's the baby's mother?

Dead.

If I give you a map, can you show us where the cave is?

Yes.

[GRUNTS]

You're a liar.

The cell.

[GROWLING]

[CLANK]

It's from the last one.

The last Whisperer we had in here.

You killed him?

GABRIEL: No.

I did.

ROSITA: It was the one your people sent to spy on us.

He killed my baby's father two days ago.

[SIGHS]

I don't know anything about that.

Right.

Never heard of him.

- I haven't.

- Mm.

I don't uh [SIGHS]

It's amazing how much you say you don't know.

Let me lay it out for you.

You're gonna work very hard in this room.

You're gonna have to convince us that you're different from the ones who lie and walk with the dead and eat worms.

And what if I can't?

Then you die.

No torture.

No games.

No second chances.

You'd be the third one, by the way.

All's I've done is tell you the truth.

GABRIEL: You haven't.

This is not for show.

I am a servant of God.

I've taken many confessions, and I can tell when people are holding things back.

ROSITA: Holding things back is the same as lying.

Outside at the gate, the story you had about being the aunt of the baby It's not a story.

it does tug at all the right heartstrings, but you're hiding something, which makes the whole thing a lie.

Ask God if I'm lying.

I've spoken to God.

He told me to hang you.

I, uh [VOICE BREAKING]

I killed my sister.

I killed my sister.

I killed I killed her for Alpha.

She didn't even have to ask.

I just did it.

You believe me now, Father?

Then you should get me a map.

[SCREAMING]

[GROWLING CONTINUES]

[GRUNTS, COUGHING]

Aah!

Where are they?!

[SCREAMS]

Tell me!

[GROWLING CONTINUES]

[GRUNTS]

[GRUNTING]

GABRIEL: So, 14 miles inland here?

Yes.

SCOTT: Any other way in or out?

There are others in the area.

I'm not sure where.

And they'll be guarded.

Did Earl send those new weapon sets?

Yeah.

Enough for all of us.

Good.

We're gonna need them.

What about the border?

It's gonna be guarded all the way down to It's clear.

It's too long for Alpha to defend.

Most of the patrols will be near the cave.

Take her back to her cell.

[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES]

So, two rescue parties.

Rosita and I will take the first We don't know if any of this is real.

Don't we?

You said you were sure she wasn't lying.

I am, and she isn't.

You all are hesitating because you're afraid of them, right?

You shouldn't be.

That's why I brought her in here.

- So you could see.

- LAURA: See what?

That they're cowards.

We broke her.

Completely.

And if we can break her, we can break others.

If you come across one of them, keep them alive, start pulling teeth and taking fingers.

Get information, because we now know the more pain and fear you pour over them, the sooner they drop the act, which is what it is.

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH]

You okay?

You seemed a little off in the meeting room.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Look, why don't you stay here and look over the defenses at the gate?

Smart thing would be having me out there.

I don't think it is.

I'm not gonna freeze.

I'm good.

But you need to worry about your sh1t.

- What is that supposed to mean?

- Means you're erratic.

Name one thing I've done that's been erratic.

"Cut off their fingers.

Pull out their teeth.

" You're itching for a fight.

So what if I am?

[SIGHS]

I can feel that Coco is wondering where he is.

And I don't want her I know.

Right.

I'll see you out there.

- You don't have to - I'll see you out there.

JUDITH: I'll make it really fast.

I'll be right back.

What's your name?

Nobody's asked me since I got here.

It's Mary.

What were you like before the Whisperers?

I'm from Santa Monica.

That was in California.

My parents' names were John and Alice.

I went to school and I don't remember.

What do you mean?

Alpha has a way of, um making you forget.

You really don't remember anything?

There are echoes left, feelings.

I was ordinary.

That much I know.

And when it all went down, my sister and I kept making bad decisions.

We needed someone to make them for us, and then we met Alpha.

You met the wrong person first.

If you'd met my mom or my dad, you wouldn't be in that cell.

You don't look like a monster to me.

[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH]

ROSITA: Judith.

We're about to go on lockdown.

You should get inside.

Bye.

Bye.

[GRUNTING]

[GROWLING CONTINUES]

Aah!

[PANTING]

- How many can you see in the herd?

- MAN: 100 at least.

It's hard to tell, but it looks like there are Whisperers in it.

It's on its way.

What should we Echo post, say again.

We lost you.

- [STATIC]

- Echo post, respond.

[STATIC]

That watch tower's two miles away.

We can't let this next wave bunch up at the gate the way the last one did.

Why would they send a herd now?

We have a defector giving us information.

They're trying to stop us before we act on it.

We're gonna have to split up if we want to cover both gates.

SCOTT: That means less people out there.

We don't have a choice.

Show of hands how many people here have been on gate duty?

MAN: I have.

Alright, how many do we need?

Need or want?

Six, plus you, me, Rosita, and Gabe.

Alright, you seven, you're gonna be on the main gate.

Hold on.

New plan.

Rosita and Laura, stay back on gate security with a skeleton crew.

You and I take a squad out to the outpost, break up the herd, and then move on to the cave.

- Good?

- Yeah.

[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS]

Gonna grab that.

I didn't want I'm not trying to speak for you.

No, it's fine.

I don't trust myself out there anyway.

Could get us both killed, and then Coco would It's okay.

I'm having nightmares about them.

Dreams they're killing me.

SCOTT: We're good to go.

I'll see you soon.

[CRICKETS CHIRPING]

All I'm saying is we could make it into a game.

I kill more skins than you, you take my watch duties for a month.

I don't wanna mess around out there, man.

Aw.

[CHUCKLES]

What, are you scared?

Remember Lydia?

My friends and I beat the sh1t out of her.

She barely put up a fight.

I'm telling you, man, one on one, the Whisperers are a joke.

We'll go back the way we came.

You don't see anything coming?

No, nothing.

No sign of a herd.

No walkers.

What the hell is going on?

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

[GROWLING]

They were forced to call.

Must've held the knife to her throat to make him call us and lie.

Why?

Most of us are out here.

There's hardly anybody back home.

[GROWLING]

Walkers!

[WALKERS GROWLING]

They're here.

Check Morgan Street.

Come with me.

[GROWLING CONTINUES]

[GRUNT, BODY THUDS]

This place it isn't what she said it was.

She lied.

These are not your people.

But she lied.

She is your Alpha.

You think you're still alive.

You were dead the moment you came to us.

Step towards me.

Why?


She wants you.

She said your death would be painless.

If you fight, it will not be.

Step towards me.

[SIGHS]

All she wants is me in pain.

You're lying for her.

Step towards me.

I am not afraid of you.

Yes, you are.

Get help.

[SIGHS]

[GRUNTS]

Help!

Thank you.

Thank you for making me strong.

Pain made me.

Pain made you.

Pain made my Lydia.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

You drove her away.

'Cause you didn't love her.

[WHEEZING]

What did you say, boy?

I can't hear you.

I'm all ears.

Are you really here?

You're alright.

Yeah.

We, uh What happened?

Aaron, where are the others?

We got separated.

Most of us got out.

Most of you?

Not everyone.

You sure you don't want her with you?

It's a short trip.

No, I'll be back as soon as the doctor at Hilltop clears me.

Besides, they could still be out there.

I want her safe, and safe is with you.

Now is the end of the world.

We are the end of the world.
