The episode began with the aftermath of Aiden's (Daniel Bonjour) death, which was partly due to his own stupidity and unwillingness to listen – a fairly common disease among the population of Alexandria. Carol (Melissa McBride) tried to make nice by leaving a tuna casserole on the Monroes' doorstep with a note that read, "We're truly sorry for your loss." Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) left the casserole and brought the note into the house to burn it, Father Gabriel's (Seth Gilliam) words from last week's episode clearly weighing on her.
As we learned last week, Pete the surgeon (Corey Brill) has been physically abusing his wife, Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge). Unluckily for Pete, Carol – a domestic violence survivor herself – was the one to find out, and Rick has taken a shine to Jessie.
