As they load it up, Rick privately asks Carl if everything was okay with Michonne. "Think she might be one of us," Carl answers. He gets in, and Rick looks thoughtful until Michonne joins him behind the car. I notice she's got a new crossbow slung across her back for Daryl, so he'll be glad to see her again. Noticing his dreamy expression, she asks, "You see something?" because she knows about his hallucinations. "I used to talk to my dead boyfriend," she volunteers. "It happens." Rick offers to let her drive, and when she accepts, he cracks, "Good. I see things." So things are actually working out for them in an episode for once, even if it's only the three of them. I guess no one else was in it because there wasn't enough good luck to go around.
Driving out of town, they pass the "Away With You" sign and Morgan at work beyond it, prepping new bodies for the pyre. I don't know how he got ahead of them, but if he can move this fast, no wonder he's been so productive.
On the road back to the prison, just past the mess they got stuck in earlier (Michonne wisely drives around on the other side this time), they pass a big, long, red splash on the shoulder of the road, with a large, inert pile of meat in the middle of it. Now they slow down, but only so Michonne can back up enough for Rick to reach out of the car door and snag the orange backpack. So they scored some extra supplies without having to add another mouth to feed? Just when I thought their day couldn't get any better.
