  • Michonne reunites with Rick and Carl by the end of the episode
  • Hershel’s walker head is put down by Michonne

And here is the entire synopsis in detail…

Episode 9 “After,” opens with the wrecked prison, packed with walkers. Michonne emerges from the woods; she turns two walkers into her new pets and finds Hershel’s now turned walker-head. In an emotional scene, she puts him down. Credits begin.

When it returns, Carl and Rick are walking down a road. Poor beaten down Rick can barely keep up and asks Carl to slow down. They go to a bar, and after arguing about who keeps watch, both go in and search for food.

Meanwhile, Michonne finds Rick and Carl’s tracks. The scene cuts to Carl and Rick finding a house and deciding to stay there for shelter. After more arguing between the Grimes boys and making the place safe, the scene cuts back to Michonne’s flashback.

In her flashback, Michonne is with her boyfriend Mike, her son, and Mike’s friend. The flashback changes up three times, one before the walker outbreak, shortly after it started, and then well into it.

Back to the Grimes boys – Carl wakes up to a passed out Rick. He attempts to wake up his dad but fails and goes to lure away the walkers that have gathered outside the house. They later have another argument.

Michonne is closing in on them, finding the sports bar. She begins to talk to her imaginary boyfriend –like in the comics. Before she did not want to follow the tracks of Rick and Carl, but later decides to.

Michonne finds the house and after tearing up, knocks on the door. Rick looks through the peephole to see who it is and chuckles, telling Carl, “It’s for you.”
