Rick and The Governor meet face-to-face in a feed store to negotiate their differences. While Andrea, Daryl, Hershel, Martinez, and Milton wait outside, Beth, Carl, Carol, Glenn, Maggie, Merle, and Michonne remain at the prison. After Daryl and Martinez bond over a walker-killing contest and then smoke a cigarette outside, and Milton and Hershel bond over similar interests; Andrea goes inside to try to encourage a detente between the Governor and Rick. Her attempt fails, and both men ask her to leave. The Governor gives Rick a hard choice: surrender Michonne to him, or the Governor's men will attack and kill everyone at the prison. The Governor gives Rick two days to think it over. Rick, Hershel, and Daryl make their way back to the prison, while Andrea decides to stay with The Governor. Rick, who assumes The Governor will kill them whether they hand over Michonne or not - does not tell the group the choice he was given; instead he tells them they are going to war, and the Governor wants them dead. Back at Woodbury, The Governor reveals his plan to kill the entire group, except for Michonne. Rick confides The Governor's offer, privately, to Hershel, who says Michonne has earned her place in the group and asks why Rick is telling him this. Rick replies, "I was hoping you would talk me out of it".
