By a Thread An injury robs Billy of his voice – and a whole lot more. (four parts)
Calculated Risks Rick doesn't have time to calculate the odds of survival at this point or to weigh the pros and cons of this course of action. At this point, all he has to go on are instincts and orders, and for once, those two things really seem to be working in tandem. (two parts)
