In next week's "The Walking Dead", the survivors are torn over a decision they're going to make on the fate of Randall. This time Rick sides with Shane, causing Dale to worry that the group is losing its humanity. The elder man argues if they kill the boy, the world they know will be dead.
In a clip for the upcoming episode, Dale is seen trying to change Shane's mind. Believing that Dale is wrong, Rick's former fellow deputy sheriff says Dale would take the full responsibility if their decision to keep Randal alive would shed blood from their group.
Also believing Randall brings a threat to them, Daryl chooses to go violent to force the boy telling the truth as seen in another clip. Meanwhile, Carl's actions cause unintended consequences.
"Judge, Jury, Executioner" will air Sunday, March 4 at 9/8c on AMC. Teasing what will happen to Randall, executive producer Robert Kirkman says, "I don't think he would have been able to make it out of there alive. Them putting him back in the trunk, they clearly don't trust the guy to drive back all the way with him."
On Rick and Shane's friction after the former confronted the latter, Kirkman states, "At the end of this week's episode, Rick is of the mind that they're square." He adds, "He doesn't necessarily think he's got his friend back, but he thinks the matters are settled."
"From the look of Shane in that car, I don't know that he's necessarily thinking that. For the most part, this conflict may be put on the back burner for the time being. It definitely seems like Shane still has a bone to pick."
