* ShootTheShaggyDog: Shortly after Dwight's group gets Tina's insulin back, the latter is eaten by her reanimated friends and Dwight and Sherry are forced to return to the Sanctuary, with Sherry becoming one of Negan's wives and Dwight getting half his face burnt off, rendering their whole escape attempt AllForNothing.



* TheSociopath: The hostile group. They want to attack Dwight's group for a single case of insulin. The scout leader Wade even nonchalantly hacks off one of the infected arms of one of his cohorts, telling him to man-up and walk it off afterwards.

Daryl is suddenly held up by Dwight, a man traveling with his wife Sherry and friend Tina. He's knocked out and robbed, and is violently prodded along with them the next day, as Dwight believes that Daryl is a member of the hostile gang. It becomes clear that Dwight's party is on the run from this gang as well. Tina suddenly faints, and Daryl takes the opportunity to make a run for it with the bag full of their supplies and his own. When he gets far away enough, he slips his restraints and opens the bag... only to find a bunch of insulin in a cooler. Realizing that Tina is diabetic, Daryl decides to go back to Dwight and returns their insulin to save Tina.

** It's unlikely that she would still be alive, quite frankly. Diabetics require ''a lot'' of insulin. They would need to loot many, many pharmacies to keep her well stocked. And the insulin needs to be refrigerated. They had it in a cooler, but where do they get the ice? Constantly? In the middle of summer?

This is addressed in the next season where its noted how costly Tina's need for insulin is.

Added DiffLines:

Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham arrive at the 20 mile marker for the herd, their mission to get their half of the herd finally complete. They still need to put one mile between them and the herd before turning back home, but just as they being to speed ahead, they're suddenly attacked by a group of hostile men. Despite scoring a few kills, Daryl is separated from Sasha and Abe and flees into a charred forest. Sasha and Abraham manage to fend off their attackers, and Sasha admonishes Abe for being too jolly about their ambush.

Realizing that Tina is diabetic, Daryl decides to go back to Dwight and returns their insulin to save Tina.

Sasha reasons that it'll be easier for a tracker to find them if they stay put, so she and Abe hole up in relatively sheltered office. Abe is eager to kill a walker that is safely locked in a room, but Sasha chastises him for his recklessness. The big guy shrugs her off and stands watch that night. The next morning he finds some RPG's while scavenging for supplies, but sees the rocket launcher is draped over the shoulder of a walker that is hanging off of a bridge. Abe decides to try to take the launcher without killing the walker, but finds he can't without getting bitten. However, soon enough, the walker plummets from the bridge under its' own weight, leaving the launcher safe for Abe to snag. He returns to Sasha and admits she was right... but then says he's come to admire her and makes it clear he wants to be more than friends. He invites her to stay with him in the office, as they have supplies and shelter. Sasha's receptiveness is questionable, but she notes indirectly that he's still got Rosita back at home.

Meanwhile, Daryl forms a tenuous alliance with Dwight's group after returning Tina's insulin, and the group are forced to hide when the armed men arrive hot on their trail. Daryl lures a man named Cam into the path of a walker, which bites his arm. The leader of the pack, Wade, amputates his arm and calls off the hunt for Dwight's group. The four then find the graves of two people Dwight's group knew, and Tina goes to lay flowers by their graves. However, the deceased reanimate and kill her.

As they dig Tina's grave, Daryl takes a chance and asks Dwight and Sherry the three questions. Dwight says he's never killed a man as he fears he could never come back from it. Satisfied, Daryl invites them to join him in Alexandria, and the two seem receptive. Daryl brings them to his bike, which he had earlier hidden, only for Dwight and Sherry to once again hold him at gunpoint. Daryl is forced to hand over his crossbow and bike to the two. Sherry says they're sorry, and Daryl replies that they're ''gonna'' be before they leave with his trusty weapon.

Daryl finds a fuel truck and uses it to find Abe and Sasha. The three drive home, no worse for wear, and Daryl asks for anyone on the walkie-talkie. Someone finally answers with a "Help!"...
