As they head back to camp Allen yells for them to run as a walker emerges from the roof and Dale comes running and takes its head off with an axe! As everyone calms down the head starts moaning, still alive! Rick and Shane hear a gunshot at the camp and after killing the zombie, run back to find that Allen had shot the head.
