Chris asks what Daryl would do without Beth; Norman says he would have been a loner for ever. Chris then mentions they finally learn more about Beth and Emily mentions that she is insecure about being alive; knowing that she wasn’t a fighter but there is a reason for her survival.

This mission is to help her keep her mind off of all the problems going on, Chris says she is a better drunk then Daryl. J.B. mentions that her drinking mission was something of her wanting to prove herself that she is a grown woman who can help herself. Chris says he likes seeing Beth basically say that she is finally ready for the world and is an adult; willing to take care of Daryl and be strong. J.B. says when watching two characters and worries about how Tyreese is with three white kids; he feels very passionate about everyone. J.B. says they all just kill off characters like crazy and was even worried about himself coming onto the show.
J.B. then mentions how about Norman as Daryl would prefer Snake or Squirrel; Norman says he’d prefers squirrel since they don’t bite back. Norman then mentions how the snake was an eel and it tasted horrible, a fan comes up and asks Norman and Emily what they felt the meaning of burning down the moonshine house; Emily says it was a goodbye to the past. Chris asks if the house was real that the burnt down; Norman says it was real and so hot that they had to turn from it. Chris then mentions he was impressed with how Beth was totally strong against Daryl when he was acting like such a jerk; it was a moment of release for Daryl.

Chris asks J.B. what he felt about the fight between the two; J.B. says that they needed to reset themselves as people.
Norman mentions how the stunt man got beat up pretty bad when he beat him up with the rubber golf club in his fight with the walkers, Norman mentions how he was pretty much growling all his line in the beginning scenes; he even says that he was actually chewing a lot of gum before. Chris then mentions how Beth was going to have a drink but starts crying; Emily says that there is something about getting what you want on your journey and it made her feel lost. She was working through her feelings with the prison and her father as well; Chris is really amazed to see how Beth is emotionally pretty healthy. Emily says that she is grounded and finds way to make herself keep going; though she is still really down. J.B. says country clubs are expensive and would totally go there himself if they were wide open.
Chris brings up a fan from the audience named Crystal asking if it was harder for Daryl to lose his brother or his prison family; Norman says that losing Merle made him let loose of the past but his prison family loss really crushed him. A caller asks how it felt being stuck in a trunk for Emily and Norman; Norman says it was really cute but he took a lot of portraits of Emily while they were in there. Chris questions when Beth mentions how Daryl will be the last man standing; Norman says it was the hardest thing for Daryl because he needs people to keep him going. Chris asks why nobody planned to go meet up at another place if something happened; Norman mentions they never had a plan for a tank to come through to woods.
