Rick is back at the spot where he left Sophia and he's got Shane, Darryl and Glennn with him. He tells them exactly what he told Sophia, and Shane says that she was scared and didn't process what he said. Shane, don't defend her idiocy. At least Sophia started out in the right direction, but she veered off for no apparent reason (as there are no Walker footprints around). Thankfully, Darryl is an excellent tracker and can spot all of this without any problem at all. Rick decides that he and Darryl will follow her tracks, while Glennn and Shane return to the group and try and keep them calm by giving them chores.
The chores include moving vehicles out of the road so they can turn around to the bypass that Glennn found... which they should have taken in the first place. And then we wouldn't have been in this fine mess. Carol wants to know why everyone isn't looking for her dumb child (because it would be better for everyone to get lost in the woods?), but Shane assures her that Rick and Darryl are searching, and Lori says they won't leave without Sophia. That's kind of a big promise, for a kid that might be dead in the woods. Or kidnapped by a witch and locked in her gingerbread house. Or trapped in some Silence of the Lambs-type situation putting lotion in the basket. There are probably some skeevy people hiding out in the woods, and serial killers would probably have the easiest time surviving in this post-apocalyptic scenario, is all I'm saying. Andrea calls the zombies that passed a herd, which makes sense... and I hate giving Andrea credit for anything.
Back in the woods, Rick can't find Sophia's tracks, but Darryl is able to spot faint footprints. That is why he's awesome (and my second favorite character after Glennn) and Rick is lame. At the cars, Carl rips a bag of weapons out of the grip of a dead body, which is the best thing he's done in... ever. Of course Lori won't let him play with the hatchet. Shane ignores him, and just says to bring the stuff to Dale for safekeeping. Carl's used to having Shane as a friend/father figure, and is visibly hurt by the fact that he's being dismissive now. Lori asks Shane what the hell is up and doesn't believe that he's giving her the cold shoulder. Her delivery here is particularly terrible. Shane reminds her that she wanted him to stay away from her and her kid, and he's just abiding by her wishes. He says that the CDC was a mistake, and that she's made mistakes too. He tells her he's prepping a car to leave as soon as he can. "Leavin'?" She asks in a Southern accent that wasn't there before. And he turns on the motor and they hear a radio broadcast telling them help is on the way, but it clearly is old and just playing on a loop.
