Rick reveals they all have the virus: 'This isn't a democracy anymore'
Episode: "Beside the Dying FIre"
What happens: After the farm is overrun by zombies and the group is forced to begin the search for a new shelter, Rick reveals the truth of what Jenner told him at the CDC: they are all already infected with the virus and will themselves turn into walkers when they die. Also admitting that he killed Shane, he informs the group that he is now in charge, and that things will no longer be run as a democracy.
Ramifications: Rick reached his true breaking point in this episode, revealing an iron will of almost frightening intensity. The incident saw him ascend to true leadership status among the other group members in Season 3, and gave rise to the idea that Lori's baby could be born a zombie.
