After following a car similar to the one used to kidnap Beth, Carol and Daryl find themselves in downtown Atlanta. They run into problems when they stop and are unable to restart their car. Carol knows the area and leads Daryl to a place she's familiar with - which turns out to be the battered women's shelter she and Sophia went to after fleeing her abusive husband. Their initial meeting with Beth's friend Noah doesn't go well as he takes their weapons. When they meet again, they realize the connection between them and agree to work together - but Carol is hit by a police car from the hospital. Written by garykmcd

When Daryl and Carol enter the van, the dashboard is shown intact. After the van hits the ground, the inside is shown with the airbags deployed. Both of this is impossible. Either the airbags would have gone off when the van hit the railing of the bridge or they would not have gone off upon the impact on the ground, because the ignition was off (there was no key to be seen).

Fantastic Episode!!!!!
9 January 2015 | by Jluce09See all my reviews

An episode I've been waiting for!!! The dynamic between Daryl and Carol is well done. Emmy worthy acting and writing in this episode showing Melissa Mcbride and Normen Reedus best work along with emotional and heartfelt scenes, music, and dialogue. My all time favorite episode. This episode is defiantly Emmy worthy and the Emmys would be fouls to bypass this work of Art.

Here are the Emmy Awards I feel it should be nominated for Outstanding

Supporting Actress- Melissa Mcbride

Outstanding Supporting Actor- Norman Reedus

Outstanding Writing

Outstanding Stunt Coordination
