#3. Is the ranch peaceful now?
Last time we saw the ranch, everyone was banding together to dig for water after being at each other’s throats. The people of the ranch were about to attack the Black Hat, but Nick’s actions pulled the group together.
While things are still uneasy, this act was enough to put the differences between the two groups aside for long enough to focus on a common goal to solve a problem that faced every survivor on the ranch.
That peacefulness was a bit of a facade though. Crazy Dog was one of the most skeptical people about the merging of communities, but even he played nice while pushing for recognition and inclusion of his people.
And when the poop hit the fan and the walkers made their way onto the ranch, there was no longer that division between groups but people fighting together for survival, the way it is supposed to be.
