Honey, I can’t imagine what you’re going through. And I would do anything to stop it. But you have got to stop blaming Rick. It is in your face every time you look at him. When Sophia ran he didn’t hesitate, did he? Not for a second. I don’t know that any of us would have gone after her the way he did or made the hard decisions that he had to make or that anybody could have done it any differently. Anybody? Y'all look to him and then you blame him when he’s not perfect. If you think you can do this without him, go right ahead. Nobody is stopping you.


Look, I fought him before. And after, we took in his old friends, they’ve become leaders in what we have here. Now you put down your weapons, walk through those gates… You’re one of us. We let go of all of it and nobody dies. Everyone who’s alive right now, everyone who’s made it this far. We’ve all done the worst kinds of things just to stay alive but we can still come back. We’re not too far gone. We get to come back. I know… We all can change.


You still don’t get it. None of you do! We know what needs to be done and we do it. We’re the ones who live. You, you just sit and plan and hesitate. You pretend like you know when you don’t. You wish things weren’t what they are. Well, you want to live? You want this place to stay standing? Your way of doing things is done. Things don’t get better because you– you want them to. Starting right now, we have to live in the real world. We have to control who lives here…
